What excites you most about traveling? Doing things I have never done before, experiencing different cultures and seeing magnificent things with my own eyes. Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Patience, Joey loses his patience very quickly. When he loses his patience, he gets really short. I hope he will learn to listen to me and keep his cool. Pet peeve about your teammate: He is always watching sports.
TV is always on sports and he won't let me change the channel. What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Paris because I've never been and I would love to see the Eiffel tower. I think it's romantic. Also, Germany because it looks like a fun party country and Spain because there is so much culture and tradition. What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race other than winning one million bucks?
I hope Joey and I will realize if we are meant to be together. We are a great "dating" couple, but is it more than that? Should we get married?
I hope we can answer that question as we experience the race together. Follow on Twitter and Instagram: News anchor Describe what you do: Bringing headlines, breaking news and what's happening around town to the community. Funny, street-smart and quick. We don't always have to talk things out.
Half the other teams are yelling and stuff. That's why you see them a little bit more than us, but the fact that we got along, that's why we were so consistent. Tiffany Chantell and Krista Debono said they had a bad taste in their mouths for Justin and Diana while they were racing but they actually changed their minds watching the season back because "The Green Team" stayed pretty honest and loyal with everyone. Tiffany and Krista then pointed out you guys were actually the surprise because you were the sneaky, more cutthroat ones.
What's your reaction to that? Joey and I, we played it as a game and we were there to do as good as we possibly could. So, I think that was just something that -- on the Race, we got along with everyone. And when somebody says, you know, "Do you want to be a part of our alliance?
And the fact people wanted to be aligned with us and stuff, I think that's kind of where that comes into play. We're okay with playing the game. We don't have any qualms about U-Turning "Texas Boys. And you know, every year-old girl was mad at us for U-Turning "Team Texas," but that's okay. We'll get over it. Did you have a similar experience though as Tiffany and Krista in terms of watching the season back and seeing Justin and Diana in a different light than you saw them during the Race?
We got along with them! We never argued with them. Yeah, Justin and Diana, we got along with them. We were never the ones that were so irritated with them, so for us, [our opinion] never changed because we were friends with them and had become friendly with them the entire race. They were a team that we were loyal to and a team we wanted to compete with. They're good competitors and we had a good time playing with them.
So we actually got along with them the whole time. We weren't one of the teams that was irritated by them the entire time.
How did you feel about Chris and Logan though? A lot of the teams were saying the "Paparazzi" really rubbed them the wrong way.
Yeah, we stayed out of the fray a lot. We didn't get in those confrontations when there were three or four-team blowouts where everybody was hashing it out. Chris and Logan, that's just how they are. I mean, what you saw on TV was probably not even as bad as the way that they talked to each other. So, laughs to be around them at airports, that's just their personality. They both have very strong personalities.
That's how they constantly are. Yeah, I think Joey and I, we were just kind of racing our own race.
