Source: The Star Online Race to the finish Will it be the cocky Filipino boys, the calm Singaporeans or the amusing Malaysian sisters? Who do you think will win the The Amazing Race Asia 2 and walk home with the US$100,000 (RM323,900) prize money? Let’s take a look at the three teams and examine their strengths, weaknesses and, of course, their entertainment value. Mark Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez It is undeniable that these two boys from the Philippines are strong. They are quick in their tasks, good with directions and they work well together. No fights and no tears. So far, Marc, 31, and Rovilson, 30, have come first in eight out of the 12 legs of the race, a truly impressive feat. Filipinos Marc Nelson (left) and Rovilson Fernandez seem to have a pretty strong grip on the prize, given that they’ve emerged first in eight of the race’s 12 legs. The two seem to have a pretty strong hold on the prize. Possible stumbling blocks however may be over-confidence and bad luck. Entertainment value? While their comic antics and clowning around was amusing in the first few episodes of the race, it is becoming a tad tiresome now. What were those fake moustaches all about? And running to the pit stop in Budapest, hiding behind two pathetic-looking tree branches? Stick to your day jobs guys. Adrian Yap and Collin Low Cool is what Adrian, 27, and Collin, 35, from Singapore are. The two have kept closely behind Marc and Rovilson throughout the race, mostly coming in second to the Filipino boys. However, in the last five legs, the two have shown that they won’t go down without a fight. In fact, they beat the Filipinos and came in first consecutively in the 10th and 11th leg. Their greatest strength is probably their foresight: booking their tickets online as far as possible, as well as the support they lend each other. Collin Low (left) and Adrian Yap from Singapore probably need to push themselves a bit more to beat the Filipino boys. Their weakness? Though Adrian has a hearing disability, I don’t think this is the boys’ biggest weakness. They need to perhaps push themselves a bit (just a little bit) more to beat the Filipino boys and, for heaven’s sake, learn to operate a push start car! Pamela and Vanessa Chong The Chong sisters have indeed proven their mettle by making it to the finals. The two started the race with great promise: coming in first in the first episode. However, since then, the two have managed to escape elimination but not without their fair share of scrapes (Vanessa got a concussion after her 10m dive and had a meltdown when she had to drive a manual car). Malaysian sisters Vanessa (left) and Pamela Chong have shown their willingness to go all out to win The Amazing Race 2. Their greatest strength would be their willingness to go all out for the race. In the last leg, for example, they were the only team to use their hands to scoop a huge pile of elephant dung into a wheelbarrow instead of using the small spades given! Now that’s bold. Their biggest weakness is their inability to perform well under pressure. We’ve seen, time and again, how both Pamela, 24, and Vanessa, 29, buckle under pressure: Pamela tends to get a bit bossy while Vanessa just breaks down and can’t think. Their entertainment value is huge. From the way they talk (they showcase the Malaysian lingo to perfection) and the things they say .. they make us laugh out loud. Every week.
