The Amazing Race PH 2 Update: AJ and Jody Saliba Bids the Competition in a Heartbreaking Goodbye

The Amazing Race PH 2 Update: AJ and Jody Saliba Bids the Competition in a Heartbreaking Goodbye

Team Mag-ama AJ and Jody Saliba wins hearts of netizens in an emotional episode of The Amazing Race Philippines. The last pit stop episode was very emotional due to the determination and toughness shown by 52-year-old AJ Saliba of Team Mag-Ama. AJ kept on pushing his limit for his son Jody, which eventually led to a painful accident. Everyone thought the race is done for these two, but Derek announced a twist that shocked everyone.

Despite leading in the fifth week’s virtual pit stop and eventually winning the sixth week’s super-Leg, Team Mag-ama dropped to the last spot as other teams conspired to work against them to catch up.

As the Race takes the teams from Cebu to Bohol, the father and son duo seemed to have lost their luck and struggled in finishing the challenges that came their way. And with four teams using the Yield card to further delay them, AJ and Jody’s chances to get closer to the pit stop became bleak. Still, they managed to catch up with team Nerds Vincent Yu and Ed Manguan, and team Mr. Pogi Kelvin Engles and JP Duray

Unfortunately, the final challenge, which required them to cross hammock trails between palm trees without failing, turned out to be the most difficult challenge of the week.

Team Chefs Eji Estillore and Roch Hernandez were first to finish the task after experiencing their share of painful falls. They eventually arrived first to the pit stop and won the PHP 200,000 pit stop cash prize from Rexona. Team Dating Couple Matthew Edwards and Phoebe Walker came in second, followed by team Magkapatid Jet and Yna Cruz who secured the third spot.

Kelvin was brought to tears after completing the painstaking task which earned team Mr. Pogi their right to the fourth spot, while the Nerds decided to give up the challenge and take a 90-minute penalty, hoping AJ’s old age would stop the 52-year-old father from completing the task.

After hours of agonizing and heartbreaking attempts, AJ still wasn’t able to finish the task. The Nerds finished their penalties and were able to get ahead of them, eventually securing the fifth and final safe spot for themselves. As if their series of unfortunate events was not enough, AJ suffered a sprain on his leg after an excruciating fall, which made Jody decide to plead for his father to stop and accept their loss.

With race master Derek waiting to announce team Mag-ama's undeniable fate, even the Kapatid actor had difficulty holding back his tears after witnessing the father and son's admirable determination and will to win. Netizens watching at home also expressed their high regard for AJ on social media, as they themselves were brought to tears by his resilience. To everyone’s surprise, Derek announced that it was a non-elimination leg and team Mag-ama still has a chance to redeem themselves.

With only two remaining weeks to go, teams are expected to now give everything they got as they face more challenges towards the final pit stop.


Powered by Rexona and sponsored by PLDT Home Telpad, Summit Natural Drinking Water, Kia, RCD Royal Homes, Shell, and Resorts World Manila, The Amazing Race Philippines airs at 9PM daily, exclusively on TV5.

Lea Salonga: "Ang magaling sa 'yo, marunong kang magkwento eh. Doing musicals taught you that, na hindi lang 'yung ganda ng boses, 'yung vocal skill mo naman naririnig namin eh. Kanina, after all of us turned, you were just, free for all ka na lang. You know how to tell a story. If you end up choosing me, then that's like the universe's way of saying, here's the opportunity for you to pay it forward."

Sarah Geronimo: "Nagsisisi ako na noong una pa lang beses na gusto kong pumindot, hindi ko nagawa, kaya nagkasabay kami ni Coach Lea. Pero ang ganda lang ng boses mo, kung paano ka magkwento sa kantang 'yun, na hindi mo na kinailangang tumaas nang sobra-sobra. You didn't have to hit that ceiling right there. Sana bigyan mo ako ng chance, Poppert, na kahit papaano, kung pagtitiwalaan mo ako na i-guide ka rin, kahit ang dami mo nang alam. Sana, bigyan mo ako ng chance na makatrabaho ka as your coach."

Bamboo: "Ako, to be honest, the reason why I turned for you, you can sing, you can truly sing. If you come to my team, it's a very diverse team, we would happily have you." "Napakasarap pakinggan ng damdamin ng boses mo. It just, I felt it in my bones, my soul, my heart. But if you want something fresh and new, something, you know, different, then you come to my team, 'cause I'll give you that."

Poppert eventually chose Geronimo whom he thought "alam kong matutulungan ako sa industriyang ito."

Okay naman 'yung performance mo, at I'm glad na umikot para sa'yo si Coach Lea at si Coach Apl." "Ang nagustuhan ko sa 'yo ay 'yung ini-incorporate mo 'yung audience, talagang nagpe-perform ka sa stage."

Lea Salonga: "Yung mga technical na usually hinahanap ko, nasa 'yo na. Ang hinahanap ko lang talaga, 'yung joy sa pagkanta. Doon sa medyo huli na, dun na lumabas, so I was like, 'yun, pwede na akong umikot."
