i totally agree! Smile ahehehe...

Hopefully! It would be lovely to see a rocket scientist join the race. Well, there's nothing ordinary about being a rocket scientist. By ordinary you mean not Mactors? hehe

You got that right... but the good thing here is we're not limited to supporting only racers from Australia... I mean the Philippines, you can also support other teams if you like... it's a free country...

I think so. I happen to know someone who knows "the daughter", and she said that the daughter in her "real life" is really a tough and independent girl. So, we will see Smile I think we can put our faith on this team. hahahhaa....

it's hard to tell
but it seems so
by axn-TARA definition (and i guess to some degree, TAR too) good tv = good looks and english as 1st language it seems
but technically 70% now are mactors with the exception of Ethan-Karie & Ivan-Hilda (Malaysians) and Hussein-Natasha(Indonesians), right?

Hi Blue...
I just want to inform you that Natasha from Indonesia is a former beauty queen. She was former Miss South Jakarta 2007 (None Jakarta Selatan 2007). So that means she is not that 'ordinary' but I'm sure she is a tough girl Smile

In my opinion, the ultimate reason why TARA producer prefer chosing mactors (and former beauty queens) rather than ordinary people is because they have more experiences in front of tv so that they know what to say & act appropriately to make a good tv. When we, ordinary people will focus ourselves 100% on the race only, the mactors will still manage to say or act funny things or making 'dramas' just to spice things up Wink

Yes. I happen to know someone who apparently knows her in her "real life", and in her real life, yes, she is tough and independent. I think we can count on this team!! Smile

I know, but we couldn't change anything about that. We gotta admit that this is the level where TARA is right now, Laughing. At least we can expect something from her to bring in the race Smile

I just want to share this story guys... Razz

Me & my mom were watching the racers revealed replay episode last Sunday, and when the Philippine team was announced my mom's reaction was "oh why is a white girl representing our country and why is the other girl claiming to be pinay has a very thick accent"... haha Very Happy so I have to explain to her that the requirement for being a racer is living for a certain period in an asian country but I can't deny that she was kinda disappointed... but who can blame her.... lolz Very Happy

But you're right blue, my mom did like the father & daughter team, so I guess It's Team Indonesia for my mom this season... harharhar Razz

See? Even your Mom noticed that the representatives of the Philippines are not "real Filipinos"! haaayz!

according to the producers, they need a team who people will look forward to watching week after week after week...

unfortunately, when you are a celebrity, people will look forward to watching you...

unfortunately, this is how entertainment works...

unfortunately, this is not the OLYMPICS...


the producers went as far as saying that Philippine teams are so competitive they can come up with an all-filipino race - which the producers hinted, is not entirely impossible... Razz
