What has The Contender Asia done to us?!?!...Sheeeeeeeeesh!!! I can't believe I actually MISS a T.V Show!!! I mean....I wasn't even excited about...Survivor,Lost,Prison Break or Heroes???!!! (Maybe abit forDesperate Housewifes....? Eva Longoria!!!!) Maybe I liked The Contender Asia ...coz I WAS IN IT??! haha well for the first 7 Episodes at least?!? But Im pretty sure that when Season 2 is out Im gonna be finding myself infront of a TV watching the show intensively again!!
I think everyone is prolly going through the same Withdrawal Symptoms as me right now!! Seems like there are two types of Contender Asia addicts. One is the "Weds T.C.A Addict" and the other is the "Thurs T.C.A Addict"!!
So since last night was the first Weds night that there wasn't The Contender Asia?!?! I was home at 8pm....and I was just so BORED.....Didnt know what to do!!! See since Jan 16th when it first aired....The usual Weds night routine for me was that I'd finish my personal training client by about 8pm, jump in a taxi to my friends place where some of them would be setting up the dvd recorder and some others would be preparing dinner and snacks. Then I'd quickly go get a shower and then I'd plant myself onto the sofa where for the next hour we'd all have dinner and watch the show. (And occasionally we'd still be on the sofa for the repeat telecast at midnight!?!?...Sad huh?....) But for weeks we've been doing that, and yesterday for the first time.......I was at home after my client and I was just sitting on the computer absolutely bored out of my mind and looking for things to kill time!!....Ipretty sure quite a few people who live in Asia and have access to AXN would have suffered the same sorta symptoms last night?!?!? Or maybe it was just ME?????
Then there's the "Thursday T.C.A addict"which are those who dont live in asia and have no access to AXN. Well the "Thurs T.C.A addict" are people who spend HOURS on a Thursday on the internet (barely a day after it aired) searching the Martial Arts forums like K-1fans, Sherdog, Kakutogi, Axkickboing, Contenderasiafans and even on The Contender Asia Facebook Group, searching for the megaupload links or torrents to download the episodes!!!! Its pretty crazy,today alone I've already gotten so many msgs and emails saying..."Oh man....I dont know what to do now on Thursdays....I usually spend hours on the forums and torrent sites searching for links to get the latest episodes!!!! What do I do now???"....uhhhmmm I don't know???....Sadly even tho I have access to AXN and live in Asia I am also a "Thurs T.C.A addict"!!! Coz I download them and watch it on my computer as I do my blog about each episodes.
Basically we're all addicted to The Contender Asia!!! I hope Season 2 is gonna get started on soon!!! But as far as I know,the selection for fighters in Season 2 will be a Contender Super 8 Men Grand Prix,that will take place in a few different countries. The winner of each Grand Prix will have a chance to be part of Season 2 AND K-1Max Final 16 in Japan.
I will blog abit more about it in the next couple of days as some of us from Season 1 will be fighting in the Super 8s so it's gonna be awesome!!!! So check back again soon! In the meantime,lpease let me know what you guys are doing to rid yourself of boredom on Weds nights now!!!
