Former It’s Showtime host Eric Tai and his wife Rowena, as well as beauty queens Parul Shah and Maggie Wilson, are taking part in the upcoming The Amazing Race Asia season.
According to Ang Hui Keng, senior vice president and general manager of Sony Pictures Television Networks Asia, the casting call for this season’s participants was filled with witty, creative, and surprising audition videos.
Eric and his wife took their excitement to their Instagram accounts.
According to the Tais, their decision to join the show was more than just to represent the Philippines in the famous competition.
“We want to show that we all have inner strength that is far more stronger than our physical appearance and capabilities,” they wrote.
Moreover, the two hope to inspire others to feel good about the bodies that they have.
“To encourage each and everyone to go for what your heart desires and not to give in to the negative voices that may continue to put you down on a daily basis,” they wrote.
Maggie and Parul, meanwhile, also posted about how they are feeling that they are representing the Philippines anew but in a different international competition.
The famed reality adventure competition has 11 chosen teams for its fifth season from seven countries across Asia. The competition is staled to premiere in October.
