OMG!! It’s back! What?! How is that possible. Craziness.
But yes! The Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition is back for its 22nd season! Bonkers!
I realized that the TARPHDME seasons now coincide with the year they “air” just like Samsung’s Galaxy S phones coincide with the year as well. So while I felt a bit bored with TAR after TARPHDME21 last year, the realization of the correlation between season and year revved up production for this new season. Wow!
And this season will feature a brand new cast of teams on a Race that may look a bit different considering the world is still navigating COVID-19. Season 21, which “aired” last year was filmed in February 2020 and safely wrapped up just days before the first lockdowns.
TARPHDME22 is the first TARPHDME season filmed in the COVID Era in March and April 2022. All locations were chosen based on countries whose entry requirements allowed for teams to Race through during that period of time.
So sit back, relax… well, until you are drawn to the edge of your seat of course as we set off on another unique, fun and exciting alliance-free Race!
