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! 😉
