Young, energetic and passionate about their fitness regime, gym buddies, Collin and Adrian from Singapore are in such good shape that they could be the perfect poster boys for being fit and healthy. In fact, one can hardly tell that this team holds a secret which can prove to either be a setback or a huge advantage in The Amazing Race Asia! The jovial pair will proudly tell you, and expressively too, that Adrian has a hearing disability and relies on sign language to communicate with his teammate, Collin.
 
Having first met in a gym nine months ago, where Collin works as a part-time fitness and pilates instructor, these two fitness fanatics found similar interests in swimming, running and traveling and formed a quick friendship. So when they learned about the second season of their favorite race around the world, it was not hard to decide to sign up together.  
 
While some may see Adrian's hearing disability as a hindrance in the race, the guys feel that it may reinforce their friendship. As Collin explains, "This is a good opportunity to know each other better. I like the challenges. Even though we are both active in sports, I believe that this race requires more than just physical fitness, to work as a team."  
 
While Adrian may be younger, he will have you know that he is no pushover to be underestimated. Claiming to be the more adventurous of the duo, Adrian is always on a look out for challenges in his life to conquer.  
 
In fact, The Amazing Race Asia is not his first adventure around the globe. Last year, he took part in a prestigious Clipper Race, an annual round the world yacht race that saw him navigating the seas for three whole months. Not only was he the first deaf Asian person to enter the race, he actually had no sea faring experience to speak of!  
 
Just the same, this team is looking forward to having the race open up opportunities for them to get to know more of Asia. Describing their love of travel as a great passion, both Collin and Adrian profess a great hunger for knowledge about the world and people's culture and custom.  
 
For their game strategy, both are planning to rely on teamwork, and will not start to blame the other if something does not happen as planned. Collin also promises that his team will always be using ethical ways to win. And if that doesn't work, they can rely on their uncanny ability to figure things out together. As Adrian describes it, "We think alike in so many ways, usually in unanticipated situations. It's amazing."

So his name is now Adrian Yap (hearing impaired)?
 
Does he seriously want to be known as the hearing impaired guy for the rest of his life?  Undecided

I'm only rooting for them because they are fellow Singaporeans. Unless they proved to be the un-typical mactorish all-male teams, i think i shouldn't be rooting for them to win anytime..

Adrian can talk but still, it's not easy to understand. You can hear 1 word and 1 word and that's about it.

Once I noticed that they had on the screen what he was saying, I could understand him more when he talked.

Seems very likeable (and they are from Singapore.) Looks like we won't be seeing too many arguments for them. Of course, they could be devious enough to  Adrian's hearing impairment to their advanatge, like Charla.

I really wonder how Adrian's disability will play out. I want to see if this teams use their secret ninja sign language to gain an advantage on the other teams. Maybe if they have a task where they are next to a rocket launch by a waterfall...?
 
Oh, and my third favorite team!

Their performance this leg was good all the way until the sucky cab driver who took them to the airport and wasted 25mins. Sad
 
I don't usually root for all-male team but they are really okay. Not too cocky compared to Marc and Rovilson.
