The heart-pumping and adrenalin-rushing race is back! Take part in Asia's biggest adventure in The Amazing Race Asia Season 5. Choose your best teammate and start submitting your application form and audition video online. If you can't submit online, you may opt to send your entries via Drop Off wherein you'll have to bring a completely filled out application form and your recorded audition video. Or you can also head on to the available Video Booths to complete an application and record a three (3) minute video onsite. Chosen teams will be flown from your local airports to an unknown destination somewhere in the world and will be allowed to bring a limited number of items needed for the competition. Race hard, race safe and race fast for a chance to bag the Grand Prize worth US$100,000. Teams may also have the chance to win non-cash prizes over and above the grand prize. Aside from that, there will be prizes as well to teams who will win a certain challenge or those who will arrive first on selected pit stops.
