The Amazing Race Asia 2
I was looking forward to this season as our company was one of the major sponsors. I would go home early every Thursday just to watch an episode and I would root for Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez and would rejoice when they would reach the pit spot first--which they did 8 times.
Today, February 14, was the season ender for Amazing Race Season 2. With Marc and Rovilson leading the race, I expected and wanted them to win. After all, they're representing the Philippines (even if Marc does not have a Filipino blood in him. Nevertheless, he's SOOOO gorgeous. As my gay officemate would say, "Walang effort!"). However, it was not meant to be. The first place and $100,000 went to Singaporean gym buddies Adrian and Collin. It was a major victory as Adrian was the first hearing-impaired contestant in the Amazing Race franchise. Malaysian sisters Vanessa and Pam took 2nd place. Sadly, Marc and Rovilson got 3rd place after being held up in the last roadblock.
Nevertheless, it was definitely an amazing race for all--especially for my favourite team. Good work Marc and Rovilson! Hoping you will also join the original Amazing Race--probably in Season 13 or 14. You would give those other contestants a run for their money.
