The second episode of The Amazing Race Asia Season 5 premiered on Thurday, and it was indeed heart-breaking to watch one of the Malaysian teams, Alphaeus & Brandon (#TARABrandonAlph) be eliminated in the second leg even though they had a head start earlier.
“To bow out like this is such a great shame because we did expect a lot from ourselves,” Alphaeus & Brandon said.
On the upside, beauty queens, Chloe & Yvonne (#TARAChloeYvonne) were first to reach the pit stop in spite of being the last to start, while muscle brothers Alex & Will (#TARAAlexWill) managed to slip into the 7th place.
Coming up in the next episode, teams fly to Kuala Lumpur and are faced with a Road Block that reshuffles the pack order. The leg finishes in Penang where some teams get stumped learning a Chinese Opera routine at the Detour.
The Amazing Race Asia season 5 airs every Thursday on AXN at 9pm first and exclusively on AXN (Astro Ch701) and AXN HD (Astro B.yond Ch721).
