I, like many Amazing Race fans, used to make wishlists of dream routes and locations I hoped the show would eventually visit. And two years ago, in anticipation of The Amazing Race Philippines 2 premiere (and the original expectation of international travel), I went all in and mapped out an entire Race course with tasks, locations and faux-screencaps complete with discount TAR graphics.

Meanwhile, The Amazing Race US is on its deathbed with the very real possibility that its already-filmed season 29 will get dumped onto CBS’ online streaming service no one subscribes to. (It would’ve premiered tonight, September 23, 2016, if its ratings hadn’t fallen off the cliff.)
BUT! In positive news, The Amazing Race Philippines DryedMangoez Edition is as strong as ever! Woohoo!
