Geoff and Tisha of the Philippines finished second in "The Amazing Race Asia 3"

Dating couple Geoff Rodriguez and Tisha Silang finished The Amazing Race Asia 3 in second place, behind winners Vince and Sam of Hong Kong.

The Philippine team of Geoff Rodriguez and Tisha Silang finished second in the third edition of The Amazing Race Asia (TARA).

After 11 legs that took them to seven countries, dating couple Geoff and Tisha came behind winners Hong Kong boys Vince and Sam, who stepped on the mat first. Friends Ida and Tania of Malaysia came in third place.

Best buddies Vince and Sam won the cash prize of 100,000 U.S. dollars.

At the start of the 11th and final leg in Muscat, Oman, Geoff and Tisha were in second place behind Ida and Tania. Although Vince and Sam began the race four hours behind the other two teams, they were able to catch up, thanks to some lucky breaks.

But if there is any consolation to Geoff and Tisha, they were able to beat the third-place finish of Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez at last season’s TARA.

The Amazing Race Asia 3 started with 10 teams—which also include pairs from India, South Korea, and Thailand—but only three teams made it into the finish line.

The race began in Bangkok, Thailand and it ended in Phuket, Thailand. In between, the teams were able to go to Vietnam, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, India, and Oman.

TARA is hosted by Allan Wu.
