The Winner of the Bath Tub Race from Ringbearer.org, February 27, 2000

It seems the Hobbits had a day of rest today, Sunday Feb 27th, and spent their hard earned time at a Wellington water-front fun day. They were competing in the celebrity bath-race...yes, they were paddling bath-tubs on the water, racing against each other.

Orlando Bloom was the winner of the race, but it seems that they were all enjoying their day off, mingling with the crowds and getting wet. It was interesting to note that when asked by a TV One news reporter about how filming was coming along, Elijah Wood commented that they had seen about the first 20mins of the movie (spliced together) and that it was looking really good so far.

The three 'Hobbits' are about the same height, Orlando Bloom seemed to tower over them. Also of note was that Orlando Bloom (Legolas) was sporting a 'Mohawk' hairstyle...Really! I hope he is wearing a hair-piece for his part, it would look a little strange in the film!
