I take more than that when I go to the grocery store lol! What great packing!

HA!! It's b/c I would rather be gross than be tired... which might not always be a good tradeoff. :)

Fun fact. Total weight of our backpack was less than 15 lbs. 2 lbs was the actual backpack. 6 lbs was protein powder. Our personal stuff was less than 7 lbs.

I have a quick question for Hung. Did you and Chee get a Leg 1 prize?

Nope, unfortunately, we did not get a Prize for Leg 1. Funny that you ask b/c there was a team who tried to accuse of lying/hiding an 'advantage' like a Fast Forward or something... I am not sure if they really believed this or if they just wanted folks to hate us. This conspiracy theory didn't catch on or go anywhere... :)

OMG! 👀 Hung spilling tea. We love to see it.

We're so happy to see you come on this site! You and Chee are doing so good so far, winning the first two legs in a row back to back?? Outstanding!

Y'all are SO much fun to watch! Can't wait to see more!

The Insider Videos now show the other teams picking up on that you are a team to watch!

Hung, how chaotic actually was the market and post-Manaus Municipal Market boat frenzy when you experienced it? :funny: I watched the CBS extra of you, Chee, and Michelle & Victoria alerting each other about the Double U-Turn and boats, and I feel like there's so much more panic that we missed behind the scenes and from other teams.

The market was so chaotic! We thought we were at the back of the pack (which we were!) and so were so surprised when we checked in 2nd b/c we made such giant mistakes! Now that I've actually experienced it, the chaos, exhaustion, dehydration, is real!!! Because of time, most of the crazy never makes it on TV! :)

Yes - I'm surprised to see how so many teams were talking about us in the 'Insider Videos'! :)

That's so exhilarating to hear! I have a couple of other questions from the Amazonian leg if you don't mind.

After you checked in to the Amazonian riverboat Pit Stop, what was the ride like? Did you end up spending time with the other 8 teams over dinner, makeshift entertainment, and whatnot, and what were your reactions after noticing Jerry & Frank's elimination? In the past newer seasons, we rarely had teams being shown on the broadcast interacting with each other during the rest periods. It was refreshing and almost shocking to see after a long drought of these clips.

Very happy to answer your questions!

The riverboat took us from the pitstop back to down the river to our starting point. This was one of the first times that we spent with the other teams. It happened to be Maddison's bday, so we sang happy birthday, had beers, and had an AMAZING dinner cooked by a local chef. After dinner, there was a live band and some dancing/hanging out at the top deck.

It was sad to see Frank and Jerry go. They were really great people.

That's a Brazilian vacation dream! Glad there were moments of exciting thrills afterward during that stressful leg.

More questions incoming if you don't mind.
-During the floating garden Detour option in Siem Reap, you mentioned your green thumb. What plants do you typically tend in your garden?
-In Hyderabad, we saw you and Chee completing the Swiggy food delivery Detour option. Did you get to see the food that you were delivering beforehand, and how hungry did the food make both of you while running around the city with them?
-Did you get to tour the expansive Angkor Thom complex after checking in?
