‘The Amazing Race Asia’ set to debut on AXN this November

‘The Amazing Race Asia’ has revealed the 10 teams selected to race around Asia and beyond for the grand $100,000 prize. It is slated for broadcast on Thursdays, at 9.00 pm on AXN. The series will debut on November 9, 2006.

‘The Amazing Race Asia’ reached a broad spectrum of people from various Asia countries, cultures and different walks of life since the call for participation that was made in February 2006. After much deliberation, a diverse group of contestants living in different parts of Asia were thrown into the mix to outrun, outsmart and conquer in the race.

Host Allan Wu said, “The producers definitely took the time and did their homework to select the most diverse, entertaining, and controversial batch of contestants for our first season. Expect to see the usual tantrums and arguments between teams and teammates. Furthermore, expect to see clashes that you’ve never even seen on the US-version. Our contestants are from all over the region and not just one country, so you are definitely going to see some major drama and rivalries.”

Produced by AXN Asia, ‘The Amazing Race Asia’ is an award winning, multimillion-dollar series. It is the first localised production of such a monumental scale.

Among the participating teams are models Prashant Raj Sachdev and Sahil Shroff, who are representing India.

Ricky Ow, General Manager, SPE Networks Asia, said, “The participants are the key drivers of any challenge-reality show with the humour and drama that they create on screen. Viewers will definitely not be disappointed by our selection of the contestants. They are a colourful and vibrant mix that will truly make ‘The Amazing Race Asia’ an exceptional and really unique first-of-its-kind viewing experience for viewers in Asia.”
