The Beauty Queens of the Amazing Race Asia

She conquered the universe. She conquered the earth. She conquered the Philippines. But only one of them emerged victoriously.

That was years ago. This time, they have the same mission and that is to conquer Asia through the Amazing Race. And one of them will emerge victorious once more. Who is she?

Three former beauty queens are taking part in a show called the Amazing Race Asia. From the the stage, they are taking their battlefields to the real world as they try to race around the world especially Asia to win - this time, not a pageant crown - a hundred thousand US dollars.

From pageant beauties, they are now Amazing beauties.

Former 2005 Miss Universe Natalie Glebova of Canada is representing Thailand on the third installment of the popular Amazing Race. She is racing with her friend, also a beauty queen, Pailin Rungratanasunthorn who represented Thailand at the Miss Earth 2006 in Manila, Philippines.

Glebova is married to a Thai popular tennis player, Paradorn. This marriage made her eligible to represent Thailand, the country where she won her title as Miss Universe.
On the other hand, Tisha Silang is representing the Philippines together with her boyfriend of 8-years younger, Geoff Rodriguez. Tisha won the right to represent Philippines to the 1998 Miss Universe pageant in Hawaii, USA. But she was forced to give up her title because of a citizenship issue. Tisha is also a Canadian citizen of Filipino parents. She's having dual citizenships.

Only Glebova won her respective pageant being the Miss Universe 2005. Pailin was unplaced at the Miss Earth 2006 while Tisha Silang did not go to the Miss Universe pageant.

Now, the question is who will become winner out of the three? Will Glebova repeat her success with Pailin or will Tisha take this oppurtunity to prove herself.

Watch the show at AXN-Asia starting 11 September 2008 at 9 pm HKT every Thurdays.

As per the spoilers posted at www.entermyworld.heavenforum.com and RFF, Tisha seems to be part of the final 4 while Natalie and Pailin were unnoticed. From EnterMyWorld, Tisha was seen in Singapore Airport booking a flight to Cochin, India. A blogger saw them and he was able to sneak a photo of them. You can check the pictures at the Spoilers Corner of the site.
