The Amazing Race Asia 2[edit]

Nelson and his "best buddy", Rovilson Fernandez are most noted for competing in the second season of the AXN reality show, The Amazing Race Asia. They hold the record for the most consecutive leg placing, finishing 1st from leg 2 to leg 8 & leg 11.

They finished in 3rd Place in Singapore, after Rovilson faltered at the final task, which is a roadblock, despite being the first to commence the task. It involves arranging of flags of the countries they had visited.[4]
