The Amazing Race Philippines Celebrity Edition 2 (DryedMangoez Edition Season 14)

It’s been a couple of months and everyone is still enjoying all the fakeness in the world. And that definitely includes the “fake” Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition!

And after the success of the unreal special lucky 13th season seeing the Philippines take on the world (Amazing Race All-Stars, that is), TARPHDME is wasting no time in coming back with another brand new season! Imagine that!

But this season is a very special surprise because for the SECOND time ever in Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition history, 12 teams of… CELEBRITIES! (*GASP!*) will be Racing around the world for a chance to win stuff for themselves and their favorite charities… if they care enough to do so. =)

Though since this is all fake anyway, you can just ignore the celebrity cast and pretend regular ol’ Filipino people are Racing on this course and route. Makes no difference, anyway. That’s one of the great things about fake stuff, you can make things up and think what you want. Whatever you want! Woohoo!

So without further ado, enjoy The Amazing Race Philippines: Celebrity Edition 2 – DryedMangoez Edition Season 14!!! (That’s a mouthful!)

Oh, and again, there’s no point in saying I’m doing this to encourage TV5, blah blah because The Amazing Race Philippines is dead. The real one, I mean. The Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition is chugging along quite nicely. That’s why they’re confident enough in doing a very gimmicky celebrity Race. Lolz! But also, it’s just nice to pretend and imagine regular, every day Filipino people running The Amazing Race. (Which means some deja vu in certain Legs, if you know what I mean. *wink*wink*

Anyway, let’s just get to it!
“Naghihintay na ang buong mundo!!! Good luck… ingat sa biyahe… GO! GO! GO!!”

TAR China

So I do think this was a better Leg and episode than last week. But overall, it was probably the 2nd weakest of the season. Still, not too bad. Continue reading

Mini-Recap: The Amazing Race China 4, Episode 7

TAR China

So I think this Ho Chi Minh City Leg might be the weakest of the season so far. Vietnam usually yields solid Legs and TAR China has also been good at taking oft-visited locations and recycled tasks and making them fresh.

But I feel like this Leg lacks a bit of spark and that refreshing feel the other Legs this season have had. It wasn’t a bad Leg, but relatively speaking, it was the weakest. Continue reading
