Amazing Race Asia 3 - Epsiode 7 (Macau)

Originally screened on AXN, Thursday 23rd October 2008, at 9:00pm Malaysia time. This is the 7th leg of the Amazing Race Asia 3 series.

Ida and Tania of Malaysia were still in , despite ending up last in the previous leg ... Leg 6 in Hong Kong

Notes below are courtesy of Wikipedia.
Mong Kok, Kowloon in HK
Tung Choi Street – Goldfish Market ... Additional tasks At Mong Kok, teams must pick up four goldfish and bring them to a designated pet shop at Bonham Strand.

This is war! Geoff and Tisha decide to yield (Delay another team, for the duration of an hour-glass) our local team!

Startled, but not surprised. Bernie and Henry of Malaysia knew they were the strongest team in the pack, and expected to be Yielded!
Then the teams go across ... Hong Kong (Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Pier, Hong Kong) to Macau. They then head to Senado Square, followed by Macau Tower
In this leg's Roadblock, the chosen team member must climb to the top of the Macau Tower, obtain their next clue there, and go down back to their partner before reading their next clue.

Sai Van Lake – Dragon Boat Pier) ... In this leg's Detour, the choice was between Dance or Chance.
In Dance, the team members must correctly perform a lion dance routine to the satisfaction of the performance troupe.
In Chance, teams must don formal attire and play a game of blackjack; they must beat the dealer nine times (as denoted by the letters of the word COMPLETED) before receiving their next clue.
At Sai Van Lake, teams must paddle a dragon boat around a floating Caltex buoy.

Finally ... At Ama Culture Village, teams must rearrange lanterns bearing the animals in the Chinese zodiac in their correct order before being let into the Village and the Pit Stop.
Geoff and Tisha were victorious for the first time in seven legs, and have possibly become joint favourites to win, together with Bernie and Henry. But who knows ... there are still dark-horses in the HK boys and Singaporean gals!

The HK boys survived...

As did the pair who were yielded ... Here's Bernie and Henry of Malaysia.

And not surprising ... in last place ... Ida and Tania of Malaysia.
BUT what was a surprise was ... This was a second consecutive pre-determined NON ELIMINATION leg, so they go through once again!

Will the Malaysian gals' luck run out next week, there can't possibly be ANOTHER non-elimination leg, so we shall see...

as a malaysian, have made it a point to not watch the local teams this year. feel it not right that minor local celebrities get to compete... maybe one pair is ok, but both??? given the benefit of doubt, hope they made it on their own merits.
