Filipino viewers can once again look forward to another of TV5’s groundbreaking and game-changing programs as The Amazing Race Philippines (TARP) returns with a bigger, more exciting and more explosive new season. Hosted by Kapatid prime hunk and sportsman Derek Ramsay, the second season of TARP is one of the most-awaited and most-talked about programs of 2014, owing much of its success to its first season last 2012. It will start airing on October 6, Monday to Friday at 9:00PM before Wattpad Presents; Saturdays, 9:00PM before Trenderas; and Sundays, 9:00PM after Quiet Please.
Definitely the biggest and most ambitious reality show in the country, TARP searched the archipelago far and wide to find this season’s 11 teams who will try to outrun and outwit each other to be first to hit the mat at the Finish Line. Auditions were held last June at key cities in the country: Cebu, Davao, Pampanga and Metro Manila, where Filipinos from all walks of life rushed to take their chances on an adventure of a lifetime. Returning host Derek Ramsay, who was present at Cebu and Metro Manila auditions, became witness to how the country quickly got back to the TARP fever. He noted, “The Filipinos love the show… they are ready for the show. I can say we are one of the most excited nations to have TARP.”
Racing for glory, two house and lots, two SUVs and P2M cash is an interesting mix of personalities who are bound to gain the support and endear themselves to Filipino viewers across the country and all over the world. These eleven (11) pairs are: sexy besties RR Enriquez and Jeck Maierhofer, blonde sisters Tina and Avy Wells, chefs Eji Estillore and Roch Hernandez, dating couple Matt Edwards and Phoebe Walker, Juan Direction hunks Charlie Sutcliffe and Daniel Marsh, the father-and-son duo of team “mag-ama” AJ and Jody Capili, nerds Vince Aguilar and Ed Chong, travel buddies Zarah Evangelista and Osang Dela Rosa, Mr. Pogi bros JP Duray and Kelvin Engles, rich magkapatid Jet and Yna Cruz, and Pinay world champs Gretchen Albaniel and Luz McClitton.
In line with its commitment to bringing only the best programs to all Kapatid viewers, TV5 worked closely with Emmy-nominated and two-time Asian TV Awards TAR Asia producer, activeTV, in the production of the much-awaited second season of The Amazing Race Philippines. TARP’s high-quality production value stems from the unique mix of TV5’s passion for excellent Filipino programming and the expertise of the franchise’s executive producer and director, Michael McKay.
Watch as the biggest reality show this year makes its amazing premiere this October 6 on TV5. The Amazing Race Philippines Season 2 is powered by Rexona and sponsored by PLDT Home Telpad, Summit Natural Drinking Water, Kia, RCD Royal Homes and Resorts World Manila.
