Amazing Race China Season 4: Finale in Shanghai, China

The Finalists:

Team Mrs Robinson, the unexpected team to beat after their weak start, with 5 leg wins under their belt.

Team Beloved, the movie star team who are a strong team on their own right.

Or Team Diver 2.0, the couple with an Olympic athlete who once had to run a leg on her own, and the dark horse of this season.

Onwards to finale, Shanghai, where the teams come back in time of the Shanghai jazz period, reminiscing about their time in the race.

Who will win, watch the show to find out, or just simply use Wikipedia if you don’t want to spend around a hour to watch the race.

Amazing Race China 4: Zhuhai & Macau, China

According to the sponsors (Chimelong, the amusement park that the teams are racing in, and the ones who gave the dolls as the treasure) and the producers for this leg, Roadblock and Detour are outdated, and now Face Off is the fashion in the Amazing Race franchise right now.

Thanks to Reality Fan Forum for the task description

Amazing Race China Season 4: Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

From what I heard, Vietnam is currently a hotspot for the Amazing Race franchise, as in 2 years Vietnam has been a racing leg for the versions of US (29), Canada (4), Asia (5) and Vietnam itself, which has an All Star Season in 2016

P.S: I’ve been to the place they are racing in this year, and it has given me quite an impression. The food is nice (you should especially eat the banh mi, the baguette sandwich), some parts of the traffic in the city are awful, and despite the language being written in the Latin system, I couldn’t understand a word of the Vietnamese.

Amazing Race China Season 4: Hefei, China

Another recap for the Amazing Race, and this time the celebrities raced back in China when the season is ongoing. What do they have to collect? The 4 Chinese writing utensils: brush, ink, inkstone and paper. Let’s go.

P.S: Looking at how the team departure works makes me feel bad for everybody else in another season, since aside from first place there is literally nothing to gain from getting high placements.

Amazing Race China Season 4: Stockholm, Swedem

The visit of Scandanavia continues, viking style. Where teams are giving a pieces of map to assemble in order to finish their leg, and finally, someone is getting eliminated.

So, have a chill drink in an ice-bar, pick out the clue from the slab of ice, and off to a restaurant they go…

Team Varsity: F-, we didn’t take the money.

Team Table Tennis: Oh, we have yours….In order to get the money, do push ups, let the girls place ahead of you in taking the taxi…good, here’s a dollar of the effort.

P.S: A minute apart between the teams according to placement?! That’s utterly inconsequential for the bottom & far behind teams.

Amazing Race China Season 4: Copenhagen, Denmark.

First leg, a veteran had to replace a member to run their race.

Second leg, a contestant has visa issues, therefore one of the teams has to race alone for the entire leg (is it the first time this has happened in the Amazing Race history?)

What would happen in the 3rd leg, some team has to quit the race because they’ve got a film to star in?

Well I’m getting way ahead of myself, first things first. In this race an Intruder team has arrived, Team Table Tennis, and their performance made me think that the producers didn’t care about how does this twist work anymore.

Let’s recap the race, in the Scandanavia region, where teams attempt to be environmentally friendly in their transportation (most of the time anyway)

Amazing Race China Season 4: Hong Kong

I’m sorry for the late review where I didn’t realize that the show has already aired a week ago, had some problems with my laptop where the YouTube search results came across glitchy until now.

But let’s get to it shall we, the premiere of the 4th season of Amazing Race China, starting from Hong Kong and the Express pass twist, sponsored by Hei Hei Ru.

Oh, and to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong.

By the way, the video I watched doesn’t have the team introductions about themselves.

FanBingBing: So… why am I paired up with someone that I shouldn’t know in a normal basis instead of another movie star who has performed better than you in the last Amazing Race knockoff? And why is she getting all the attention?
