We're up after being six minutes late yay  :escape

Previously on The Amazing Race Asia!

Four teams raced to Banyuwangi, Indonesia! An alliance was formed to stop Treasuri & Louisa and they were Yielded and U-Turned.

Despite their valiant efforts, Treasuri & Louisa just couldn't catch up.

Will it be married couple Eric & Rona, beauty queens Parul & Maggie, or Yvonne & Chloe?

Who will win $100,000 and The Amazing Race Asia?

Intro!

Tasks that require attention to detail, okay. I can see the teams struggling, so perhaps it's harder than it looks.

Somehow, in here, it wasn't delayed anyway. It starts on 8:00, like usual. How crazy difference a country can make on a schedule. Anyway, so we're ahead. You continue.

This race is getting intense with the cab drama. :nut:

Parul & Maggie are smart for checking the clue from time to time. Many teams lose because of not reading the clue. Now that I mentioned it, no team has received a penalty for the whole race!? :o Unless something happens in today's episode.

Hopefully commercial time will even out that delay from Cash Cab's time extension.

What a memory task! Item associated, pit stop, and eliminated team. The last one is easy, but the extra coconuts are really throwing the teams off. "What am I missing!?" as Maggie said.

Now it's anybody's game. :hoot: :nut: :trampb:

There are 4 out of the 6 first placer  teams that fall into last place after winning the previous leg ( 3 teams were eliminated) in TARA 5, with the following name:

Alpheus and Brandon : eliminated in the second leg after winning first leg
JK & Mike : eliminated in Yogyakarta after winning the leg in Singapore
Treasuri & Louisa : eliminated in Banyuwangi after winning in Yogyakarta
Eric and Rona : last place at the finale after winning in Banyuwangi

With only Yvonne and Chloe who avoided this "curse" (they won in Bandung).... Not counting Parul and Maggie (won at finale)
