I’ve been such a big fan of The Amazing Race Asia 2 ever since episode 1 aired! I’ve been very vocal on air about how exciting it is and how I actually like this Asian version much better than the American one. I was never a big fan of the 1st season of TARA, but I was hooked immediately when I caught the 1st episode of the 2nd season. So imagine my delight and how starstruck I was when Marc Nelson and Paula Taylor dropped by RX for a station visit! Everyone is aware of how good-looking Marc is, but what bowled over EVERYONE (ladies included) was just how pretty Paula Taylor is in person! I mean, we know she must be beautiful, since she manages to look great even when they’re harassed and dirty and sweaty. She looked like a princess! Plus, Marc revealed that she has a spread in the latest Maxim magazine with Natasha. And I don’t want to be a showbiz-type rumor monger, but we noticed (It wasn’t just me! Everyone noticed!) just how “sweet” the two were. Maybe they’re just good friends, but they’d really REALLY look good as a couple…if ever. I’ve met Marc before, when we joined the JVC badminton tournament (Don’t ask, I sucked! After 2 consecutive tourneys of constant sucking, they never invited me again!), and he’s one of the genuinely nicest guys I’ve ever met. So I’m really rooting for him and Rovilson, not just because they’re Filipinos, but because they’re really deserving and they’re the good guys. And which makes me extra ticked off at the other Filipino couple who yielded their kababayans during one episode. It just shamefully highlighted the notorious crab mentality we’re unfortunately known for. Even the other teams from other countries couldn’t figure out why they would do something like that to their own countrymen. Oh well, I’m jabbering like a fanboy geek again, so I’ll wrap this up. I’m really glad they dropped by the station and I’ll be rooting for them both! They’re not allowed to say who won (I tried to pry it out of them, but no dice!), but win or lose, I’m a fan!
