I don't think so. Probably the same reason with why Indonesia had no representatives in season 3

maybe AXN didn't find a strong team on the Thai audition tapes they have received, I mean in terms of personality & character...

i think it is because this season the producers want to increase TARA's popularity in those countries which have been chosen. Must be a direction from the sponsors as well..

it could also be that during the time of screening for contestants, the country was on stand still brought about by the clash between anti-government and rightist riots...

it was a bloody event, people were stuck in hotels or in their homes...

hmm, yea, it makes sense. The audition was held before May (or April (?)) and maybe not that many people from Thailand sent audition video and applied, hmmmmm

I still believe that it is due to lack of applicants who successfully caught the attention of the producers because of their catchy audition tapes and interesting personalities. Not so much really on the country's peace and order situation. Very Happy

yeah, and why is that? Probably because the number of applicants from that one specific country is low, because everyone there kinda concerned about the political situation there first Smile

Well not exactly, Z. Both HK and SG have population smaller than Thailand.....but they've got reps this season. I still believe that nobody from Thailand passed the auditions.....

Or it is also possible that TARA is not popular in Thailand.....so the people there never cared if there's an audition. Do we have any Thai forummer in the old forum? None, I think. I have seen many Filipinos, Indonesians, Malaysians and Singaporeans....but not one Thai....

I recall there were several Thai forumers, but not as many as compared to other countries, but I am sure the number was not zero. I recall, there was one who was a fan of Paula (season 2), hehehe.

Well, that's my point. I think there were applications from there but none of them was "good" enough (maybe). And why was that? Maybe because the number of applicants weren't that high because many people were concerned about the critical national situation. Let's say, in normal days, there are like, let's say, 10,000 applications. Because of the national conflict, maybe there were just 1,000 applications. That's why the chance of this country to get a representative went down (maybe significantly) Smile

Well if you are good....and I mean really really good, you still would've been chosen even if you are the lone applicant from your country. Smile

But then again, maybe, just maybe, because of their situation at that time when the auditions were conducted, nobody really cared about it. Hell.....they do not even know what will happen next, if they will still be alive the next day....so yeah, probably, very few auditioned for TARA....and those few weren't good enough.

exactly my point Smile I am talking about the probability that a country will have a representative Smile The more auditioners, of course it is more likely for it to have a rep Smile

I'm a little bit confused too, the name "Asia" is a bit misleading i think as most of the contestants this season are from Southeast Asia. I expected fair representation of teams from across Asian regions such as West Asia (Middle East), Central Asia, Far East, Indochina (Have Iran, Japan, Korea, Burma, Vietnam ever been represented?) etc. I think it'd be super fun to have all kind of Asian in the race, each with their own culture, accent and uniqueness...Just hoping cat
