It's Official--Prepare to Sign up for Season Three of The Amazing Race Asia!!

Beijing is getting even colder this time after my return from Singapore.  However, I just received news that AXN will officially be heating things up for me with the third season of The Amazing Race Asia.  AXN told me that the Call to Entry for applications will be out very soon so look out for it if you think you got what it takes to race around the world!  Just remember...If I do happen to eliminate you, it ain't personal! 

Since I've already started on this blog, I figured I'd share some pictures from my time here in China.  We've been shooting in this frigid sports hall in the Outer Sixth Ring for a dance competition, and here's a shot of me and my bodyguard from the movie:

Jordan Chen and our D.O.P. (Director of Photography) Andy are drinking some boiled water just to stay warm between takes at this venue.

We got about six hundred extras for this scenes, and the entire place is still freezing.  Everyone is bundled up and struggling to stay warm. 

Meal breaks are always really "interesting" with some many people to accommodate.  All the extras have to line up and wait to have their simple "lunchboxes" allocated to each person.  The meals are all kept in styrofoam boxes in an attempt to keep them somewhat warm. This process takes quite a long time to complete, and I'm can't believe how much time we expend just getting anything done with crowds like these. 

Now, here's a building that I think many tourists are very familiar with when it comes to buying knockoffs of each and every kind from clothing to shoes to sunglasses to silk to bags to DVDs to pretty much about everything and anything.  Ladies and Gentleman, the One and Only "Silk Street"...

..."One Dream One Shopping Paradise."  Gotta love that tag line too!  Have a good time if you're there and don't forget to be prepared to haggle like you've never haggled before.   The salespeople here are the best at what they do, and they're prepared to rip you off!

If you're serious about signing up for the new season of The Amazing Race Asia, start thinking about who you would want to race with...and who might want to race with you.  We've seen what happens in this current season when you pick the wrong person--such as your significant other--so Choose Wisely! 

Good Luck!!

Haha, thanks, but no thanks. While I love watching the show, I don't think I could cope. For one thing, I don't think you can keep racing if you kill your partner, and the other thing is that I would have a lot of trouble completing the tasks involving animals - I got a phobia of them.

Hey Allan, It would be a big help if u could give us some clues how to make our team being shortlisted for this TARA3! Do they look on the videos or our personalities? I am representing Brunei and it should be great to have a Bruneian team for TARA3!
