Monday, 9 April 2012  |  News + Promos

“Jaymie and Marc, you are team number one. You have won a trip for two to Greece where you will run the Athens Marathon. Congratulations.”

Wow. What an awesome dream. Not only do I have Marc as my partner (move over, Rovilson!) and I get a free ticket to Athens Marathon, but I actually make it to the Amazing Race!  I’m a huge fan!

Well, the good news is that dream can actually turn into reality not just for me but for everyone now!


The world’s most prestigious adventure race is now accepting applicants for its first Philippine edition. The twelve-time Emmy Award winner for “Outstanding Reality-Competition Program” arrives on local shores with an open call for contestants of The Amazing Race Philippines.

The show’s producers consider the Philippines as one of their favorite places to shoot, and now you can take part in this grand event too. There are three ways to audition: online, mail-in and on-ground.


For online auditions: visit for the link where you can fill up the online registration form and upload your audition video in AVI, MOV or MPG4 format. The audition video’s running time should be a minimum of 1 minute and maximum of 3 minutes.

As for me, wow, I would love to make this dream come true, but I wonder: how does one train for triathlon while you’re running all over the place?!
