The Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition Season 5 – Family Edition!

To celebrate the miracle of another season of The Amazing Race mothership getting ready to run tomorrow (June 22nd)… (and because I’m still slowly trying to get caught up with my Japanese toku shows), how about another season of The Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition! Woohoo!

This 5th season was actually supposed to “air” immediately after the successful “Ring of Fire” season 4 last month, but it was delayed even though it was all ready to go. So, here it is!

To recap where the franchise is right now, TARPH has begun flying to the non-visa free countries. In other words, any country in the world is fair game for TARPH to Race to, regardless of visa and logistic concerns. Yay!

As always, any TARPH season will be “borrowing” tasks from any other TAR franchise that may have visited certain locations. But of course, it’ll be fresh and new for Filipino audiences (and any international TAR fan that will be able to actually watch the show… hopefully with complete, official TV5 HD YouTube uploads *crossesfingers*) And of course, I started doing this to maybe encourage TV5 that yes, The Amazing Race Philippines traveling outside the Philippines can be possible. :D

So without further ado, here’s Season 5 of The Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition… a Family Edition! Edition. Yes! Continue reading
