The Richards of the Philippines - The Amazing race Asia 4 winners
They kept it to themselves for so long. Now, they can jump for joy in front of the Filipinos and shout “We WON!”
The Richards – Herrera and Hardin – raced to the max and checked in first at the finish line (right at the Observatory Deck of Marina Bay Sands). Host Allan Wu officially announced them as the winners of The Amazing Race Asia 4 and USD100,000.00 in cash. The final leg was in Singapore and it could have been a more nail-biting race had Hussein of Indonesia not quit the titghrope challenge atop Marina Bay Sands. Rich Herrera executed this part flawlessly and joined forces with Rich Hardin for the memory-based road block en route to the win.
The Singaporean team of Claire and Michelle clocked in second, and despite getting a much later flight from Seoul to Singapore, outlasted Hussein and Natasha of Indonesia who had to endure a 4-hour penalty for not completing a challenge.
For those who failed to watch the Final Leg last night on the AXN Channel, here are the videos (courtesy of AgusPrattamaTV):
Mabuhay kayo, Rich Herrera & Rich Hardin! 😉
Rich Herrera on the cover of the December 2010 issue of Men's Health (Philippines)
This is a spliced blog for Men’s Health Magazine and The Amazing Race Asia 4.
If you buy the December 2010 issue of Men’s Health (Philippines), you will see Rich Herrera (and his fine abs) on the cover. It only costs P140 (the magazine, not the abs). 😉
At the same time, Rich and his namesake & good buddy Rich (Hardin) are in the Top 3 of The Amazing Race Asia 4 which will have its’ Season Finale tonight at 9PM on the AXN Channel. Watch and see if the Philippine Team will win the USD100,000 top prize or end as a runners-up to a team from either Indonesia (Hussein & Natasha) or Singapore (Claire & Michelle).
Despite the rumors that the father-and-daughter team will become victors, I’m still rooting for the Philippine team. Rich & Rich – inspite of their navigational shortcomings from time to time – raced and played very well. I’m proud of them, especially Rich Herrera (my apologies!) who I initially tagged as just a typical society boy.
Buy Men’s Health Magazine and watch The Amazing Race Asia 4 tonight! 🙂
