Ten episodes of the show will feature a unique ‘Check-in and Win’ contest for viewers. A ‘pit stop’ in a designated Hilton property will be revealed at the end of each programme and the first five viewers to check-in using Foursquare between 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. during the following seven days will win a host of Hilton prizes including room nights and dining vouchers. These viewers’ pit-stops are located at Hilton properties across the region including Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam.
This is going to be huge! Also, they've basically just told us what countries the Amazing Racers will hit this season. Foursquare is huge in Japan, so we're assuming the craze has spread to these places as well...hopefully. We hope people get some of the Foursquare rush on camera, because this could easily get crazy/dangerous.
In order to discover these pit stops, you'll have to watch each episode of Amazing Race Asia, so start marking them on your calendars now. Fingers crossed that they bring this to the US next season!
