Recap: The Amazing Race Philippines 2, (2/3 of) Episode 14 (Leg 3, Day 2) – “Bawian lang yan! Good luck.”

AJ & Jody open the next clue telling them to head to the Giant Clam Statue at Dagupan City…

On the bus, the second group decide to tsismis. Tina & Avy suggest they form an alliance to yield the rich kids Jet & Yna. Daniel & Charlie agree. Kelvin & JP say Yes, but don’t really offer any details so as not to put themselves in a risky position in the future.

The first bus stops for some breakfast at a Shell station and the teams have fun messing with each other, especially at the expense of Jet & Yna and their wealth. They all agree to work together since they are the first group. Continue reading
