Malaysian beauty queens enter Amazing Race finals
Former beauty queens of Malaysia have made it to the finals of “The Amazing Race Asia” Season 5, becoming the sole Malaysian team in the top three alongside two teams from the Philippines.
Chloe Chen and Yvonne Lee who were Miss World Malaysia 2011 and 2012 respectively, have proven the critics wrong by making it to the final round of the race, and they have also shown that they are more than just beauty queens with pretty faces.
“One of the teams came up to us and told us they were surprised we were even chosen to be on the show. They thought we seemed weak but it isn’t just about physical strength. It’s about having brains, patience and a bit of luck,” Lee, 28 said to The Star.
In the final episode of the “The Amazing Race Asia” Season 5, Lee and Chen will be competing against fellow beauty queens Parul and Maggie, and married couple Eric and Rona.
In the first season of “The Amazing Race Asia” in 2007, Zabrina Fernandez and Joe Jer Tee from Malaysia became the first all-female team to win the race.
Winner of the race will take home a grand prize of USD100,000 (RM441,445).
The final episode of “The Amazing Race Asia” airs tonight at 9pm on AXN (Astro Channel 701).
