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!!”

Mini-Recap: The Amazing Race China 4, Episodes 1 and 2

TAR China

The Amazing Race China is back for another season and I am definitely excited. While I enjoyed the first two seasons of the new franchise, last year’s season 3 was amazing. I loved it. I thought it was the best Amazing Race season of 2016.

I’ve come to accept TAR China’s quirks, whether it’s the interesting filming schedule or their original twists. But I think things came together for season 3. Not only was it the most “normal” season so far, the casting to the locations to the tasks were all great. And you didn’t need to understand a single word of Chinese to enjoy it.

So I have high hopes for season 4. And so far, it’s delivered very well. Continue reading
