The Amazing Race Wiki

Marc Duñgo and Katherine "Kat" Tan are a team of Gym Buddies on The Amazing Race Philippines 1.

With their physical prowess, educational background, and efficiency in completing tasks, Marc & Kat emerged as the frontrunners in the Race, winning seven legs on their way to the final three. However, during the rare occasions when they struggled, Kat's controlling, domineering side and hotheadedness emerged, taking out her frustrations on Marc. Despite being the favorites to win, they fell to last early on in the final leg when Marc struggled with the first Roadblock, resulting in another temper tantrum from Kat. The resulting argument saw the gym buddies all but give up on winning, finishing in a distant 3rd place.

Notes:
1: Marc & Kat used their Salvage Pass to enter the Bantay Bell Tower 30-minutes before it opened.
2: Marc & Kat used the Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock in Leg 5. Before using the Express Pass, Marc elected to perform the Roadblock, and this is reflected in the total Roadblock count.
3: Marc & Kat received a 1-hour penalty for taking private vehicle instead of a jeepney from Holiday Inn Clark to the Mabalacat Bus Terminal as the clue had specified. They immediately served this penalty while transferring buses at the Araneta Center Bus Station.
4: Marc & Kat initially arrived 2nd but received a 40-minute penalty for improperly completing the Lulubog Detour. During their penalty, LJ & CJ checked-in dropping them to 3rd.
5: Leg 13 had two Roadblocks and no Detour. There was no restriction for team members to perform the second Roadblock.
