THE Amazing Race Asia, the world's most popular adventure reality series, is returning to AXN later this year and this time it's more adrenaline-fuelled than ever before.
For season 5, 10 teams of socially savvy, fearless warriors from all over Asia will embark on a once-in-a-lifetime experience, traversing the globe and proving their mettle on a quest to be crowned the all-out champion. The highly anticipated series will be hosted by Chinese-American actor and host Allan Wu (pix), who was the face of the race for AXN's first four seasons.
"The Amazing Race Asia takes viewers on the world's most thrilling adventure where drama, surprise and intensity all collide in a highly dramatic edge-of-your-seat experience," said Virginia Lim, Vice President and Head of Content and Marketing.
"We're seeking dynamic teams who embody the AXN attitude that is smart, tenacious, determined and strong. A passion for social media is also a key requirement as contestants will be engaging with AXN's viewers and sharing their heart-pumping experiences throughout the race," Lim added.
Travelling to multiple countries in the shortest amount of time, each team will arrive at a new destination where they must compete in a series of physical, mental - and often emotional -challenges. Only when the tasks are completed will the teams learn of their next exotic location. Teams who fall the farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning The Amazing Race Asia and the US$100,000 cash prize.
