Even The ‘Real Housewives of Sydney’ are headed to Australia’s Amazing Race

One woman is leading the way for an all-female team to win an Australian version of The Amazing Race.

Tatiana Calderon, 29, and her teammate are beating the likes of “Real Housewives of Sydney” star Lisa Oldfield and another newbie to the race.

Calderon is a GP and a motivational speaker with a loyal Instagram following. A part-time Melbourne radio host, she took to Twitter and Instagram shortly after winning to make her intentions known.

“It’s official. I will be racing @theawarnit and @saberalphbarry!” she tweeted to her 2,000-plus followers on March 20.

The hashtag #goTeamTatiana immediately began trending and an Instagram competition for a couple to join Calderon, 27-year-old Sabrina Barry, and Oldfield for the race was also running for several days.

Neither Calderon nor the other half of Team Tati only want to be known as #TheLatestTen.

Calderon said, according to The Courier Mail: “The race will be us four. It will not be just one team who will win. We are hoping to win it, but so many other teams have come up with amazing ideas and shared them to us. It will be a good one for fans who want to watch.”

She believes the “empowering” element of the competition could make it extra appealing.

“We need to acknowledge other women on the competition,” she added. “We will be supporting each other. It will be a good one to watch.”

The CBS game show, The Amazing Race, features teams of two that compete in “challenges” during which they have to get as far away from the start line as possible in as few kilometres as possible. Each of the teams race around Australia in a bid to complete the competitions within 30 hours and avoid elimination, which means one of the teams has to be eliminated each day.

And that’s where contestants come in. After being in the lead, the teams have to work as a team to stay in that position. After another challenge each day, the two teams that have managed to finish the most challenges will progress to the next task in progress. If they complete it, then the next challenge will be next on the list. And so on, and so on.

Each of the teams also have two Immunity challenges to take part in, which decide who gets the chance to go home if one of the teams fails to complete the other challenges.

The remaining contestants on the race are Magda Szubanski, Peter Helliar, Chris Gordon, Tony Jones, and Vikki Campion.
