We have the official winner for Season 1 TARA and they are non other than *drum roll please Joe Jer and Zabrina! Congrats GIRLS!!! You do us all Malaysian very proud.
Not only are they the first Malaysian team to win the first ever Amazing Race Asia show, they are also the first female team in the entire Amazing Race (including US) reality show to won the race. And with that they are US100,000 richer. (how come not US$1 million?)
Second place winner, Sandy and Francesca from Hong Kong came very close to winning it. Just by less than 5 minutes maybe. A consolation third place went to Andrew and Syeon also from Malaysia. Awww I guess buying the wrong guide map and not hiring a cab to guide them is their biggest lost. I wonder why team Joe Jer and Zabrina suddenly got so smart while team Andrew and Syeon… (speechless)
I have more or less ‘figured out’ the winner of the show even before the last race started because Cabio, another TARA/TAR fanatic gave out a clue at the TARA forum about what Allan described regarding the winner. He said “underdogs win”.
Well I gotta said that I’ve enjoyed TARA Season 1 tremendously. I hope there would be a 2nd season. Yee hah! And I hope I will be in it. Let my team be the 2nd all female team to win the race. Hahahaha! Girl POWER baby!
p/s: Amazing Race All Stars will premiere on Feb 19th AXN at 9pm. Also there’s Amazing Race Europe coming as well.
