First Look at The Amazing Race Philippines – The Meltdowns!

TV5 has just uploaded a slew of brand new teasers for The Amazing Race Philippines, this time featuring some of the teams (though unidentified) roughing it with taxis, mud, pigs and the threat of falling a few hundred feet below.

The teasers confirm a few things; there are 11 teams and the series will premiere on October 29th, a Monday which likely means TARPh will air 5x a week.

Here are the teasers…
First up, a teaser of Derek Ramsay as host and a preview of the Starting Line:

There was plenty of drama on this week’s episode of The Amazing Race.  And Art & JJ had a hand in most of it.  Not only did they egg the Vanessa & Ralph and Brendon & Rachel fight on or confront Nary & Jamie for the heck of it, they also threaten Bopper & Mark. 

First, here’s Art & JJ confronting Nary & Jamie in a scene that was aired in the episode:


Not done starting drama, JJ threatens Mark & Bopper (by getting right up to their faces), saying they better unhitch themselves from the Brenchel/Nary & Jamie wagon and join their group of three unless they want to suffer the same fate as Kerri & Stacy:


Then they tell Phil at the Mat that they prefer to minimize their involvement in all the drama?  Sure…
