In last Saturday’s episode, the 8 remaining racers had to surf at Ganaden’s Nook by the Sea in San Fernando in order to get the route info that will lead them to the fourth pit stop location. Team Dating Couple Matthew Edwards and Phoebe Walker, still first in the race, were only seconds ahead of second-placer team Magkapatid Jet and Yna Cruz who met them at the race mat. The Dating Couple won another PHP 200,000.00 from Shell V Power Nitro+. Team Mag-ama AJ and Jody Saliba advanced to the third slot, followed by Chefs Roch Hernandez and Eji Estillore, and Nerds Vincent Yu and Ed Manguan.
Meanwhile, team Sexy Besties RR Enriquez and Jeck Maierhofer became the only all-female team in the competition after making it to the 6th spot. They were followed by team Mr. Pogi Kelvin Engles and John Paul Duray who miraculously leaped to the 7th spot, thus eliminating the blondes from the race.
Despite finishing last, Tina and Avy won the hearts of millions of netizens due to their impressive performance despite being left out of alliances formed by other teams.
“Nung first leg pa lang, the other teams were ganging up on us. We never really allied with the other teams, which was fine by us because Avy and I figured that in the end, it will still be every team for themselves,” Tina noted during an interview with InterAksyon.com.
This week, viewers can look forward to the much-awaited meltdown of first-placers Dating Couple Matthew and Phoebe. Will this affect their standing in the race? Will other racers be able to overtake them from what seems to be a leg-after-leg win? Another team to watch out for is the father and son tandem of 52-year-old AJ Saliba and his 21-year-old son Jody who jumped over to the 3rd spot after starting out in the 5th place for the past legs. Will their performance improve now that the race takes them to the Ilocos region?
