The Amazing Race Philippines vs The World (DryedMangoez Edition Season 13)

It’s 2017 and it appears to be the Era of Fakeness. Everything from “fake news” to “fake people” to supposedly fake presidents. There’s even a fake Amazing Race Philippines calling itself a “DryedMangoez Edition!” Crazy crazy world we live in today!

But just because something is “fake,” doesn’t mean it isn’t enjoyable and fun!

That’s one of the many reasons The Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition is still going! There doesn’t seem to be any end in sight for TARPHDME (unlike The Amazing Race US whose end appears to be imminent or The Amazing Race Philippines which actually is dead).

So what was once an effort to hopefully prod the Philippines’ TV5 into producing more and more actual, REAL seasons of The Amazing Race Philippines, is now just something for anyone and everyone to enjoy for five minutes every week.

No country restrictions. No geoblocking what few fans the show might have around the world. No fees. No gimmic… well actually, it does have a few gimmicks. But you get the point.

Without further ado, enjoy the lucky 13th season of The Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition

What TV5 Needs to Do for The Amazing Race Philippines Season 3

9/23/16 Update

Things are looking dimmer and dimmer for a possible season 3 of The Amazing Race Philippines. Since this post almost a year ago, TV5’s fortunes have only gotten worse after Viva Entertainment basically milked them out of undeserved money by giving the network two horrible programs that couldn’t even attract half the audience tuning into Filipino-dubbed Japanese and American series, also on TV5.

So Viva is now mercifully out of the picture and TV5 is left picking up the pieces left over. The network is very much on the verge of falling off the cliff. Most of its talent and staff have left the network for various new opportunities while those left at TV5 are valiantly fighting the good fight. That is all while there is an obvious lack of competent leadership at the top of the network.

It’s very sad really. Not just because The Amazing Race Philippines is basically dead. But it’s also sad to see a promising network just collapse.

Anyway, everything else in this post is still relevant to the overall Amazing Race franchise. So I’ll leave it here. And despite Amazing Race US also on the verge of death, at least other international franchises are doing well. =)
