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

well, there are tons of Asian countries while there are only 10 slots available, so ... Smile
lol yeah sure some of the countries even have double representatives! Suspect

maybe you're right, it must had been so hard for the jury to process every application from just all those countries. One country alone could have sent thousands of applications. I knew it was quite impossible...but i think it worth mentioning just in case Smile

maybe they are aiming for the market in those countries?? I mean, maybe it's worthless picking contestant from a country where TARA is not popular, or even is never heard, right?? Smile

I would love that too. It would be better if there were more countries being represented in the race. That would also broaden the audience of the show and probably they could visit more Asian countries during the race.

the thing is, because there are only 10 slots available, giving some of the slots to "more" countries means "less" slots for current represented countries. And the producers need to keep their eyes on these current represented countries as these are where their markets are (mostly, maybe). Why would they give away a slot ot two to a country where there is no AXN access or TAR(A) is not popular there?? Smile

again it all boils down to ratings! they can try though, they'll never know until they try. take for example, china has a very large population to say the least, we just never know what fraction of the population will watch tara.

or, they can survey it first. If they do try and it fails, they know it doesn't work BUT they have lost their money!! I'm sure that's not what the producers want.

Maybe none applied directly from their native countries, but doesn't mean that there were no Arab expats, or Arab descent who live abroad applied. If im not mistaken you don't need to hold an Arab passport to represent Saudi Arabia for example. One good example is Jess, she doesn't look like a Pinoy to me... confused

well, if this is the case, it will be another looooong discussion Smile Through all these seasons, some people have "complaint" about how the racers do not "represent" some certain countries as because of their race or maybe origin Smile

no~! It's maybe because there are only a few thai who can understand english, and fewer know what the Amazing Race is. And also we prefer watching our own films than foreign film. Nevertheless im still watching whether my country is represented or not because it's not like my country would gain anything by having our team winning the race and also it is too exciting to be missed. Though i would prefer less celebrities, more pitstop in Africa and more difficult tasks flower

i don't think bad performance is a direct reason could be Thais' response to the show.. maybe they got less viewers than expected, ratings-wise

i agree. they could care less about the performance. it's a ratings game. maybe the viewership is not that good in thailand.
