AXN is all set to air the third edition of ‘The Amazing Race Asia’ from September 11. Nearly 19 million viewers across Asia had followed the second season of the ‘Race’. ‘The Amazing Race Asia’ Season 3 will be aired on Thursdays at 9 pm.
Ricky Ow, Senior Vice-President and General Manager of SPE Networks – Asia, the parent network of the AXN channel, claimed, “It will be the toughest race ever as there will be many challenges that the contestants will not expect or be mentally prepared for. The teams will have shorter resting time, the journey will be harder, and the speed of the race will be faster and more intense. This, combined with the new cast, you can expect many dramatic moments, tears, twists and turns, and an overall thrilling ride for viewers.”
‘The Amazing Race Asia 3’ has a totally new cast to look out for. Besides the first Korean team joining the race, Season 3 also has the highest number of family relationships in all seasons of ‘The Amazing Race Asia’. And unlike their predecessors, many of the contestants are not used to the demands of high adventure.
The contestants this time include three beauty queens, including former Miss Universe Natalie Glebova; wife to Thailand’s highest ranking tennis player Paradorn Srichaphan; the first-ever Korean team made up by sporty brothers; well-known Malaysian faces - Bernie Chan who pairs up with her brother, and actress Ida Nerina (Serpet) with her heiress pal Tania Khan; a comedian who can’t help but crack jokes on-and-off screen with his teacher buddy; a dramatic father and son team with theatrical antics; and the Indian team comprises a former air-hostess and her cousin.
