Amazing Lunch with The Amazing Race Asia winner Richard Hardin from Team Philippines

Aren't we lucky we have good-looking representatives for Amazing Race Asia? Yeah Team Philippines!

But yesterday at our lunch at Dusit Hotel, the other Richard (Herrera) was absent.

Rich says as early as now, they're flooded with offers for TV commercials, shows, and hosting gigs.

I wish I asked Rich for aguinaldo. Their team won US$100,000.00

Did you know that Rich proposed to his girlfriend Rachel after the race? Here's the lucky girl called Andrea.

Amazing team Joyce and Az.

Here's our table vs. paparazzi. I hope they didn't overlook this nirvana of desserts at Dusit Hotel.

While munching on these, Rich shared with us that there is more to the Reality TV Show that's not aired. Like how they must do their own laundry during the race. They wouldn't want to spend their Leg Money on laundry.

Then there's how team mate, actor and model Richard (Hererra) is a self-confessed OC that they'd sometimes fight about how toiletries are messed up.

Joyce who's handling gazillion accounts as an International Publicist, had Rich raffle off minor prizes like trips to Misibis Bay, US, and another Asian country I failed to remember.

I went home with some L'oreal makeup and hair products which was the prize I really was wishing for haha.

Braving the streets of Manila in December is like an Amazing Race by itself. Especially the part when the taxi driver speaks gibrish. Yet I'm glad I didn't miss this one! Congratulations to the Richards for winning The Amazing Race Asia.
