The Amazing Race Asia 2

The Amazing Race Asia (Season 2) is back! AXN-Asia has revealed last night the identities of the ten teams who will compete in the race. One thing that I observed... there's a lot of genuinely nice looking women here. Is this a beauty contest? Just kidding. Hmmm, I'm sure lots of men will be watching the show. :)

As for me, my heart goes out for Adrian, the hearing impaired contestant from Singapore. But of course I'll still go for the TEAM PHILIPPINES. I hope one of them will bring home the bacon. Go Team Philippines!

The Race begins on Nov. 22 (Thursday) on Channel AXN at 9:00 PM (Philipppines, Singapore, Malaysia, Bangkok), 10:00 PM (Hong Kong), 8:00 PM (Jakarta), 6:30 PM (SL)

UPDATED
Here are the Ten Teams:



GYM BUDDIES (The Grand Champion of Amazing Race Asia 2)

Member 1
Name: Collin Low
Occupation: Regional Sales Director
Age: 35
Hometown: Singapore

Member:2
Name: Adrian Yap
Occupation: Business Development Officer
Age: 27
Hometown: Singapore

Young, energetic and passionate about their fitness regime, gym buddies, Collin and Adrian from Singapore are in such good shape that they could be the perfect poster boys for being fit and healthy. In fact, one can hardly tell that this team holds a secret which can prove to either be a setback or a huge advantage in The Amazing Race Asia! The jovial pair will proudly tell you, and expressively too, that Adrian has a hearing disability and relies on sign language to communicate with his teammate, Collin.




DATING

Member 1
Name: Bret Money
Occupation: Physiotherapist
Age: 26
Hometown: Indonesia

Member:2
Name: Kinaryosih
Occupation: Model, Actress
Age: 28
Hometown: Indonesia

Good looking does not even scratch the surface when it comes to describing the glamorous Brett and Kinaryosih! Sure, her excuse is that she is a rising actress with several TV shows and movies under her belt, but with him, he looks like anything but your everyday physiotherapist. First impressions aside, will this beautiful duo dazzle audiences or outshine the competition, or do both?




CHILDHOOD FRIENDS

Member 1
Name: Paula Taylor
Occupation: Actress/VJ/Model
Age: 24
Hometown: Thailand

Member:2
Name: Natasha Monks
Occupation: Public Relations / Brand Consultant
Age: 24
Hometown: Thailand

One works as a VJ in Bangkok, Thailand, and is a rising, hot starlet, having appeared in several Thai movies since 2002. The other is more than likely a sight for sore eyes at the mining company where she works at, dealing with, well, explosives. What Paula Taylor and Natasha Monks have in common, besides turning 24 this year and in possession of sizzling good looks, is a lifetime of friendship and the intent to win The Amazing Race Asia.




BROTHER AND SISTER
Member 1
Name: Sawaka Kawashima
Occupation: Singer/Interpreter
Age: 28
Hometown: Japan

Member:2
Name: Daichi Kawashima
Occupation: Interpreter
Age: 26
Hometown: Japan

For the first time, Japan joins the cast of The Amazing Race Asia and offers up a new element to the race. Siblings Sawaka and Daichi have only recently reunited after a family misunderstanding that happened three years ago. Will the race offer them a chance to re-discover the family love they once shared, or will they buckle under the pressure of their strained family ties?




DATING 10 YEARS

Member 1
Name: Monica Lo
Occupation: Actress/Model/Student
Age: 28
Hometown: Hong Kong

Member:2
Name: Edwin Lo
Occupation: Event Organizer
Age: 26
Hometown: Hong Kong

Drama has always been the spice that drives the lives of this team. Monica is an actress who knows the subject all too well in her day job, while Edwin has been nicknamed "Drama King" by his friends.




EX-HOUSEMATES

Member 1
Name: Aurelia Chenat
Occupation: Model
Age: 27
Hometown: Hong Kong

Member:2
Name: Sophie Teng
Occupation: Writer
Age: 27
Hometown: Hong Kong

Both in the prime of their life, Hong Kong residents, Sophie and Aurelia are attractive, outgoing, and personable but any other noticeable similarities stop here as both cannot be as different as night and day when it comes to their personalities.




BEST BUDDIES (The Third Placer of Amazing Race Asia 2)

Member 1
Name: Marc Nelson
Occupation: TV Host and Model
Age: 31
Hometown: Philippines

Member:2
Name: Rovilson Fernandez
Occupation: TV Host and Magazine Editor
Age: 30
Hometown: Philippines

No Amazing Race show can be without its hunk factor and that is where Marc and Rovilson from the Philippines come in. This is one team with the two flamboyant individuals, who dish out a mixture of comedy and ego with a ton of sass. Both TV hosts by day, Rovilson also works as a magazine editor while Marc is a model, whose face, and rather well toned body, has graced the cover of many magazines.




MARRIED 13 Years

Member 1
Name: Henry Reed
Occupation: Retired US Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer
Age: 48
Hometown: Philippines

Member:2
Name: Terrie Reed
Occupation: Housewife
Age: 44
Hometown: Philippines

When it comes to the discipline, dedication and effort placed in getting things done, nothing prepares you quite like the military and after over 20 years of serving his country, retired United States Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer Henry Reed, together with his wife, Terri, is taking all he knows about travelling around the world and putting them into competing in The Amazing Race Asia.



SISTERS (The Second Placer of Amazing Race Asia 2)
Member 1
Name: Pamela Chong
Occupation: Professional Dancer
Age: 24
Hometown: Malaysia

Member:2
Name: Vanessa Chong
Occupation: Artiste Manager
Age: 29
Hometown: Malaysia

When it comes to The Amazing Race Asia, there is an unspoken pressure for Pamela, 24, and Vanessa, 29, to bring home the top prize. Yes, both Malaysians realize that there is a lot riding on them to perform well, since the winners of the inaugural The Amazing Race Asia were Malaysian and also an all female team!




DANCING MUMS

Member 1
Name: Ann Tan
Occupation: Business Owner
Age: 40
Hometown: Malaysia

Member:2
Name: Diane Douglas
Occupation: Marketing Manager/Teacher
Age: 33
Hometown: Malaysia

You can call them the desperate housewives of Malaysia - housewives who are desperate for new challenges and adventure that is. And what better way to discover excitement than to pack their bags and take off on The Amazing Race Asia. These two longtime dancing buddies are trying to prove that after family commitments, everything else they undertake should be as easy as performing hip hop or funk jazz.
