One of these three teams will win The Amazing Race 17 and USD1 Million. Who will it be?
Racing couple Jill & Thomas
Racing Doctors - Nat & Kat
Racing friends and Home Shopping Hosts - Brook & Claire
The winning team of The Amazing Race Season 17 will be known Sunday night (Monday morning in the Philippines) and you can catch the telecast on AXN Channel tonight at 7PM.
I’m rooting for either Nat & Kat and Brook & Claire to become the first-ever all-female winners of the original. The Amazing Race Asia (TARA) has already produced one (in the 1st season yet) and it’s high time that TAR comes up with its own.
The Amazing Race is hosted by Phil Keoghan.
Update (as of 11:10am Manila time; Dec. 13): The race is already finished. And the DOCTORS won!!! I’m so happy for Nat and Kat – the first-ever all-female winners of The Amazing Race US! 😉

The 17th season of The Amazing Race premiered last September 26 (September 27 in Asia) and it almost slipped my mind. Good thing I switched to the AXN Channel right after dinner and was able to watch just a couple of minutes late into the premiere episode. i was able to size up the 11 teams as they head to their first destination – London, England. It may be too early but the ones I really like among them are the Doctors (diabetic Nat Strand and Kat Chang) and the Gleeks (Ivy League Acapella Singers Connor Diemand-Yauman and Jonathan Schwartz) because they have the right attitude for the race coupled with a tempered sense of humor and are sincere in their dealings with the rest. I would love to see any of the two duos win this one.
The Gleeks (or Green Team if you will) - Connor & Jonathan
The Doctors (Nat Strand and Kat Chang)
I have read into one too many spoilers about the different pit stops and eventual results of the 17th season but I won’t spill the beans for you, my dear readers. I’m still watching the whole thing from start to finish despite knowing all the highlights.
For those in Southeast Asia, watch The Amazing Race 17 on the AXN Channel every Monday night (around 7pm – PHL/SIN/MAL). 😉
