Amazing Race China 2 (2015): Windhoek, Namibia

Note: Before I start, I have to celebrate this blog’s 100 post, and reaching over 1000 views. Which is kinda hard actually, to be encouraged and discouraged to continue writing. But I’m quite happy there are people enjoy my writing.

And thank you everyone (well, mostly in the China region, and Canada) for something making this season Istanbul post unexpectedly exploded in viewer ship (well, my blog standard at least, and couldn’t you try to like it?), so I just want to ask, what do you like about that post?

Intruder Alert, Teams, Please Level Up Your Racing Abilities

Well…if you are an avid Amazing Race viewer, you all have already know that this season has an Intruder concept, where a team will arrive at some point to compete with the remaining racers.

Amazing Race China 2 (2015): Marseille, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France

Love is in the air, in the whisper of the trees,
Love is in the air in the thunder of the sea,
And I don’t know if I’m just dreaming,
I don’t know if I feel safe,
But it’s something that I must believe in
And it’s there when I call out your name.

-Love Is In The Air, Tom Jones

(What, it fits with this leg theme, and I love that song when the radio plays on Lite FM)

Anyway, here we go, for the first time ever, Amazing Race China starts experimenting with 1 leg, 1 different country (Wikipedia mentioned it, from Spain, France, Namibia, Mauritius, Thailand and obviously, China)

So, with no time, to waste, all those pampered celebrities are now in Madrid, equipped with medieval armor to take out all the tasks that hurt them, and the harsh 40 degree temperature.

Amazing Race China 2 (2015): Cappadocia, Turkey.

3 days after I finished watching the episodes, and then I look up to Wikipedia to know the locations (and the tasks)

Wikipedia: Sorry, the details about leg 4 is not fully written yet, please edit it yourself to contribute our page.

So, now I’m going blind for this post.

Last Time on Amazing Race 2015, where celebrities are strapped for cash in the mad dash.

Allan Wu: This is a double leg, which means no Speedbump for you Team Singers. However, this also means that you’ll both have to sleep in a supermarket, at least it’s a step up from getting fleas.

Team SUPER!: [BaoYi about ZhiWei] Yep! My father is really tired and we are not doing this for ratings, so we have to take the penalty (for not sleeping in a local house).
