For Pamela & Vanessa from The Amazing Race Asia 2, see Pamela & Vanessa (AS2).


Pamela Spella and Vanessa Ishitani are a team of Alabang Housewives on The Amazing Race Philippines 1.

Despite their luxurious and comfortable lives, Pamela & Vanessa's sense of adventure brought them to the Race, where their lack of physical prowess regularly left them trailing the other teams. However, their ability to properly perform each task at their own pace, positive attitudes, and an inexplicable amount of luck allowed them to survive the first two legs. They came in last on a physical third leg, but were saved by a Non-Elimination Leg. This left them hours behind the other teams in the next leg, however, and were the only team to not get on the first bus to Baguio. Unable to make up the time difference, they were eliminated in 9th place.
