I am hoping they are still racing. I guess they would be prohibited from tweeting or anything correct? Some stalker will find out if they are home...lol

That seemed like a hella fast paced final leg.....I am happy with the outcome. I liked Meghan & Cheyne although I would have loved for Erica & Brian to win. As long as the bitch brothers didn't win, I was cool.

Erica, that was mean about J&J already being eliminated.....lmao

Dan and Sam McMillen talk about 'The Amazing Race'


Daniel and Samuel McMillen think it almost would have been better had they arrived at The Amazing Race's final ifteenth-season task in last place rather than first.


Dan, a 21-year-old student from Liberty, MO, and his brother Sam, a 23-year-old student from Fort Worth, TX, were the second team to cross the finish line during The Amazing Race's fifteenth- On Monday, Dan and Sam talked to Reality TV World about how being the first team to arrive at the final task was a negative; which two teams they viewed as big rivals throughout the season; how they never let their brotherly bickering interfere with the competition; and whether they really stole another team's cab.

Reality TV World: First off, congratulations on finishing second.

Sam and Dan: Thank you! (in unison)

Reality TV World: What was going through your mind when you guys got to the Monte Carlo and discovered you seemed to have a pretty good jump on the other two teams -- were you starting to feel pretty confident in your chances of winning at that point?

Dan: All I knew is that we needed to take a risk, go really fast and just get it done because we knew that ["Dating Couple" Meghan Rickey and Cheyne Whitney] were close and ["Married Couple" Ericka Dunlap and Brian Kleinschmidt] were close.

I don't really know if we could have done anything different because we've never played poker, we don't really know how to count chips -- and Cheyne does. I mean, you look back and there's a million "what if's." But you can just sit around and say that all day, so I don't really know what we would have changed.

Reality TV World: Based on that answer and what viewers saw in last night's show, it almost looked like you guys ended up putting some extra pressure on yourselves once you found out you had the lead. Do you think the fact that you got there first ended up being a positive or a negative?

Sam: I think it ended up being negative because, personally, I'm a big risk taker. I would normally have been like, "Let's just throw it all out there, just try to even the stacks out and be done with it." But going in with such a big lead, my attitude was, "Let's be careful, let's be cautious, let's take our time since we have this lead to be sure we get it right the first time." If we had come in third place, we would have been doing everything we could to just fly through it and maybe would have done it a lot faster.

Reality TV World: Based on that, do you think Meghan and Cheyne arriving in third gave them an advantage?

Sam: Absolutely, 100%. They just flew and all they did was stack and even the stacks out...

Dan: Well I think they would have done the same thing if they were the first team, because he knew how to stack them. So...

Reality TV World: About how far ahead of Brian and Ericka and Meghan and Cheyne did you arrive at the Monte Carlo?

Sam: I think we were there about five to seven minutes before Brian and Ericka, and probably like 10 to 12 before Meghan and Cheyne. So not that much of a lead, but it was quite a bit I guess.

Reality TV World: Last night's episode made it look like you guys were actually the last team to finish your initial chip count -- just seconds behind the other two teams. Was that actually the case?

Dan: Yeah, I think it really was...

Sam: Yes, we all finished literally within 10 seconds of each other. Then Meghan and Cheyne were the only ones who got it right. So that's why they got such a big lead right after the chip count.

Reality TV World: What happened with your initial incorrect chip count -- do you remember about how many chips you were off?

Sam: What happened was Meghan and Cheyne submitted theirs and so we were like, "Oh crap! We have to also!" So we just kind of... We were down to about... We were $5,000 off so we were like, "Just put these in!" because we thought we had the right stacks and stuff. It turned out we were about $1,000 off -- and it's because we threw them all in at the last minute because we kind of got rushed because they had finished.

Reality TV World: And you got the correct count on your second attempt, is that right?

Dan: Correct. I figured this was going to be the last challenge since we had already done a couple of things, so...

Reality TV World: About how far behind Meghan and Cheyne did you leave the Monte Carlo?

Dan: Ten minutes.

Sam: I would say probably 10 minutes -- 10, 15 maybe, somewhere in between.

Reality TV World: Had you kind of resigned yourself to second place at that point or did you still think you had a chance of catching Meghan and Cheyne?

Dan: I think I was kind of negative with it. I was like, "It's over." I knew we had already done two challenges and this was our third challenge -- and most finales have about three challenges. So I was trying to have hope, but once I heard them get it right I was like, "It's over." (laughing)

Reality TV World: About how far behind Meghan and Cheyne did you cross the finish line?

Sam: Eight to 10 minutes probably.

Reality TV World: You guys finished second to Meghan and Cheyne for the final four legs of the race...

Sam and Dan: NO!!! (in unison)

Dan: They were all pretty close too.

Sam: We were pretty close to them every time.

Reality TV World: So I'm assuming you saw them as your biggest competition while you were out there, right?

Sam: Oh absolutely.

Dan: We always thought ["Harlem Globetrotter Teammates" Herbert "Flight Time" Lang and Nathaniel "The Big Easy" Lofton] were just because of the deal in cities, we thought a lot of Americans would want to help them more and whatnot. Little did we know that we didn't really see anybody in Vegas -- but it didn't really matter. But at the end we definitely thought Meghan and Cheyne were.

Reality TV World: You guys were certainly portrayed as the bickering brothers and Sam you even commented in your final words that you know you guys bicker a lot but still love each other. Going into the race did you think arguing with each other would be something that might hurt your chances of winning?

Sam: Honestly we never saw it as a problem because we knew that no matter how much we argued, no matter where we were that we argued, we still would have been working on the race. We never would have wasted time to argue. So it never really seemed like something that would set us off as being our problem area.

Reality TV World: Do you think your arguing played a role in your inability to correctly count the poker chips during the final task?

Dan: I don't know. I think it's just that we didn't know how to count chips.

Sam: Simply put: We didn't know what to do. We literally counted each individual chip. We had no idea what we were doing. I've never seen poker chips in my life before that, so I was like, "I don't know what to do."

Reality TV World: Last night's episode also showed you guys not knowing Wayne Newton's name when you met him. Was that your most embarrassing moment on the Race?

Sam: We actually called him [comedian] George Wallace. He's calling himself the new "Mr. Las Vegas" apparently.

Dan: We asked Wayne Newton if he was George Wallace, and that must have been such an insult to him.

Sam: We thought maybe George Wallace was his real name and Wayne Newton was his stage name. So we thought that's what it was. But yeah, we couldn't remember his name because we were so nervous and so excited. Obviously when you say, "Wayne Newton" and you recognize his face -- it's Wayne Newton. It just wouldn't come to us for some reason.

Reality TV World: One of the biggest moves you made on the race was Dan's decision against giving Big Easy the answer to the clue at the museum in Prague. At the time Dan did you really think that decision would play such a large role and did you feel guilty about it at all?

Dan: I thought, "Hey, I want to get a little bit of a lead on them. So if I give him the 'F' he'll figure it out in like 10 minutes." I don't want them to come out right with us. We wanted to have a little bit of a lead. So never in a million years did I expect to see Brian and Ericka in the finale. I thought the Globetrotters were going to be done so fast.

Reality TV World: And you never felt guilt about the decision?

Dan: A little bit [began] coming out and then Sam helped me confirm and say, "No, of course you shouldn't have given it to them."

Sam: It's kind of funny, the fact that people were upset that we didn't tell them the answer. I just think that is so ridiculous because it's like handing someone your chances at $1 million. Why on earth would you help one of the best teams on the race to get to the Final 3?

Dan: I think the issue is that people thought I went back on my word. We agreed to help each other, and that's exactly what I did -- I helped him. The first day I was kind of upset, I was like, "Oh crap I'll look like a villain." But now I just don't care. (laughing)

Reality TV World: It looked like you guys had a bit of a rivalry with the Globetrotters -- so was that just the editing making something out of nothing or was there actually something going on between you guys, specifically when you had that physical contact when you were racing to the Pit Stop in Estonia?

Dan: From Day 1 in casting, we wanted them out. Now we like them, but throughout the race they were so independent and kind of secretive -- and they were good. They really were good. So we were just like, "Let's do anything we can to get them out."

Reality TV World: You guys also took some heat from Brian and Ericka for stealing their cab during the tenth leg, but during last night's episode Dan we saw you telling them to blame it on the cab driver. What did you mean by that -- were you trying to convince them you didn't know it was their cab or just trying to pin the blame on their driver for agreeing to abandon them?

Sam: What happened was we talked to the cab driver and he called another cab driver who was supposed to be there in five minutes. Well, we were going to take that one -- but then we were like, "Well Brian and Ericka won't be done for another 20 minutes. So we'll take this one and they can take the next cab that shows up." It was the cab driver's buddy who was going to come get them. That cab never showed up.

Dan: So it was the cab driver's fault...

Sam: It was the cab driver's fault for never showing up. That's what was meant by that.

Reality TV World: You guys seemed to form an alliance with Maria Ho and Tiffany Michelle on the race. Where did that alliance originate and how helpful was it for you?

Dan: It originated at the Japanese game show [during the first leg].

Sam: We made a good connection with them. We kind of had a friendship spark at the beginning, and honestly I don't think we really sought them out because they had any qualities that we were interested in helping us along the race. We were just really compatible with them and we felt like we raced well whenever we were with them and whenever we were helping them.

Reality TV World: What was the most difficult task for you guys on the race? Was there anything that you thought you wouldn't be able to overcome?

Sam: Honestly, the Golem in Prague was probably the most ridiculous thing I've ever done.

Dan: That was physically demanding too...

Sam: Then of course the hay bails. The interesting thing about the hay bails is that as I was unrolling them -- and unrolling them one after another -- I honestly got to the point where I was like, "I'm never going to find this flag. It's never going to pop up." A few seconds later, all of a sudden this flag came up. I was like, "This has to be a mirage. I'm not really looking at a real flag." But it was, so it was good.

Reality TV World: What was your favorite experience on the race?

Dan: I would say traveling around the world because we had never been out of the United States before, so that was definitely what I was most excited about and why I didn't want to get eliminated -- I just wanted to keep traveling.

Reality TV World: Do you agree Sam?

Sam: Absolutely, 100%.

Reality TV World: Was there anything you expected to see that got edited out?

Dan: No, I think they put in all of our stuff. I always wondered what they were going to do, if they were going to take out anything -- if it was too bad. But they put everything that I said in there. So it was interesting. (laughing)

Reality TV World: How did friends and family react to seeing you guys on the show?

Sam: Oh my gosh, they were SO excited and they cannot stop talking about it. It's so funny because we're like, "Yeah, it happened." And our family's way more excited than we are.

Dan: We're so excited that we never have to be asked the question, "Did you win?" That was the most annoying question ever.

Reality TV World: How were you cast for The Amazing Race? Was it your first time applying for the show?

Sam: It was our first time. Dan turned 21 two days before the applications were due and you had to be 21 to apply. We sent in a video and they liked our story and we did all the phone interviews and everything and it just kind of went our way. We had great interviews and they liked us.

An Amazing Proposal in the Pages of BRIDES Magazine


Robert Benson/WireImage
When you're the winning couple of CBS's The Amazing Race, you better believe there will be an amazing proposal involved when it comes time to pop the question. Last season's winner, Cheyne Whitney, proposed to girlfriend and Amazing Race partner Meghan Rickey in a unique way—by showing her the April issue of BRIDES magazine. Working secretly for months with our marketing team, Cheyne put together a full-page ad that asked, "Meghan, will you marry me?" He then got down on one knee and gave her an ArtCarved platinum princess-cut engagement ring. The whole proposal was captured by a hidden TV crew from Entertainment Tonight. You can also enter to win this engagement ring from our promotional department. —Jackie Lebowitz, BRIDES Magazine

It's about time this team was eliminated. They were extremely boring. I was very glad to see the Cowboys take on a challenge I thought would be impossible and excel at it, and that they were able to do the speedbump and still wind up in first place. Although it was a very easy speedbump in my opinion but nonethleless it's nice to see them back at the top of the pack.

yeah I mean really, wtf was up with that speedbump?? Why not just ask them to tie their shoes? eyeroll
I would have much rather had the Lesbians or Dumb and dumber eliminated before the father and daughter.

What's amazing about last night episode was Father & Daughter came in 1st the previous leg and was eliminated last night and the Cowboys came in last the previous leg and came in first this leg. I really like their competitive, but not ugly racing.

Finally team Lesbians have been eliminated! Although, I do think it was a dumb move to give the Lesbians a U-turn when it really should have been given to a stronger team since the Lesbians have pretty much been in the back of the race the entire race. I thought the one Lesbian looked really ridiculous making fun of Caite who is half her age. It just makes the lesbian look worse, If she wasn't embarrassed by acting like that she should be.

The brothers have been growing on me if the Cowboys don't win I hope it's the Brothers... the other 2 teams I don't care for at all.

Is it just me or does Amazing Race seem to finally be getting good? haha now that the season is nearly over! Go figure!

glad to see the Lesbians go. I agree 100% that they made themselves look horrible by making fun of Caite. But hey, they have pretty much been horrible the whole race and Caite is right about one thing, they brought it on themselves. If they had even made one attempt to be civil to her and Brent they probably wouldnt have U-turned them. Love that Brent and Caite were the ultimate reason for their demise. That will be a tough pill to swallow...lol.

Bye bye Carpet Munchers!!! Caite being the last woman standing = cheerleader I really like the Cowboys now. The only reason I was hating on them was because they sent Jeff & Jordan to the wrong bus station. But I think Jet is so cute, and we all know I love a Cowboy (cough Colby and Steven cough).

1. Caite
2. Jet & Cord
3. Brent
4. Dan & Jordan
5. Michael & Louie

I am actually fine with whoever wins TAR now that the Lesbians are gone. Usually at this point in the season, there is a team I simply cannot stand and want them NOT to win. All the teams left are deserving.....yup, even Caite and Brent.

Completely agree that it's great that the lesbian's demise came at the hands of Brent & Caite!
They aren't necessarily my favorite, but that was awesome. I think I'd actually be kinda annoyed if the detectives won. For some reason, they rub me the wrong way.
I like the Brothers & Cowboys!

The Amazing Race
Amazing Race’s Carol and Brandy: We Aren’t ‘Mean Lesbians’

April 13, 2010


Carol Rosenfeld, 47, a consultant living in Los Angeles, and her Salt Lake City-based teammate, Brandy Snow, a 40-year-old actress, were the second team to have their run ended by the dreaded U-Turn on this season of The Amazing Race. The former girlfriends spoke with PEOPLE about being labeled “mean lesbians,” how they really feel about Caite Upton and how the competition cost them their relationship. –Carrie Bell
You said on the show that “dumb did us in.” Did anything else was contribute to your elimination other than the U-Turn?
Brandy: The U-Turn was the end of us. We were totally blindsided and did not consider ourselves the biggest threat.
Carol: It was funny and surprising to see how big of a threat [the cops] thought we were.
Brandy: It was a very physically competitive race and we did the best we could in every situation. We brought our best game. I don’t have regrets about how we played it and I don’t have any about how we treated any of the other teams. We were very focused on our performance and not on the other racers.
Caite had particularly nasty things to say about you in her explanation for why they u-turned you.
Brandy: We weren’t mean. uh sure you werent There are way more clips of her hating on us. To be labeled mean for an off-handed comment while Jordan is on national television doing a spot-on and hysterical imitation of her seems like a gross double-standard. We were vilified for a comment that was not meant in any way to be a judgment call.
Carol: If the meanness was so constant, why didn’t they air any of it? I made a joke on day one [about her] racing in her sash and tiara. I thought it was funny then and I still think it’s funny.
Brandy: When we were around them, I felt we were nothing but respectful and kind.
Your reaction and exit speeches were memorable to say the least.
Brandy: I was nervous for last night because I knew I had reacted poorly. When I’m attacked and sabotaged, I go to the fight instinct. The gloves came off. Perhaps the name-calling and impersonations were not the best sportsmanship, but as tired as we were and as emotionally invested as we were in the competition and to have it all taken away, I reacted honestly in the moment.
Are you able to forgive and forget?
Carol: Well, me being a mean lesbian and all, they don’t want to run into me in a dark alley.
Brandy: It‘s been an emotional roller coaster watching it and being labeled. This is my national coming out party. My friends and family knew I’d been in same-sex relationships, but in general people didn’t know. I partially did it because we were only the second lesbian couple on the race. I wanted to raise awareness and be positive.
Carol: I’m very hesitant to say Caite is homophobic because that’s a very harsh statement. But, man, to watch her saying the “mean lesbians this and that” in that derisive tone week after week, it’s hard not to let your mind go there. oh for the love of God, here we go with the homophobe labeling! You WERE mean and you ARE Lesbians...how the hell is that homophobic???
Your exit means yet another season without an all-female team in the finale.
Carol: We won’t see an all-female team win as long as we have to race in men’s boots … When the guys have to start running in high heels, it‘ll be a fair fight.
You had been dating less than a year when you started. How’d that affect your relationship?
Carol: Getting ready for the race hijacked the honeymoon part of our relationship … Our relationship was more disposable because of its newness. I cannot recommend this for new couples.
Brandy: It took a toll. We’re living in different cities and focusing on being friends right now.
Did you take away any good memories?
Brandy: I liked Malaysia the most because we worked together best on that leg and we did all the tasks. I loved the culture and the it was beautiful and our cab driver rocked.
Carol: Even though I stepped in llama s— and got kicked by a cow, South America far exceeded my expectations. Those volcanoes were stunning.

good riddance...you will not be missed on the show.

That was a good episode last night between the little guy who look rodentish to the last task on the field with the puzzle. I just wish someone would have gone home last night so that next Sunday would be the finale. I'm just ready for it to be over.

Still the only teams I would want to win are the cowboys or Dan and Jordan.

I'm pulling for the cowboys, but am really fine with all of the final 4 teams. Brent & Caite have really got on my nerves, but you know what?, they've made it this far, so I definitely think they deserve to be there.
It's so crazy to me that picking the wrong cab driver, or getting the wrong directions from a stranger on the street, can cost you 1 million dollars! I could NEVER go on TAR. :)

Trump: Amazing Race “doesn’t deserve” its Emmys

Apprentice star Donald Trump says that another Sunday night reality series, The Amazing Race, doesn’t deserve its seven Emmys for best reality competition series.
“It’s a shame that ‘Amazing Race’ keeps winning, because it doesn’t deserve to win it. It wins every year because they know how to politic the Emmys,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “They’ve lost credibility. Instead of shows that deserve to win, they pick ‘Amazing Race.’ It’s a very sad commentary.” He referenced his 2004 Emmy nomination for The Apprentice and said, “I was standing up to go down there and pick up the Emmy. Incredible. It’s a joke. If the Emmys want their ratings back, they have to pick shows that deserve it.”
Last fall, Survivor host Jeff Probst said something similar, insisting TAR should withdraw from the competition. Although Trump’s a blowhard, I agree with both of them. The Amazing Race absolutely deserves its early wins, but the CBS reality competition has now won seven consecutive Emmys. Seven! It remains an impressive production, but its quality has decreased while innovative, high-quality, deserving shows get ignored because Emmy voters don’t care about the category, or just keep voting for the same show, or don’t watch reality TV.
However, I doubt that Trump being Trump is going to do much to change their mind. In fact, it’ll probably have the opposite effect.



It's funny that Trump said TAR doesn't deserve another Emmy, which insinuates to me that his show is possibly being robbed. Not even in the same league in my opinion. Apprentice is good but not that good. However, I do feel like Survivor has been better than TAR the past few seasons if we're talking about a show deserving.

A few final thoughts on the finale of TAR. Within the first 5 minutes of the show I was totally rooting for the cowpies and rooting against the brothers for cutting into line. I think the niceness of the cowpies cost them this race. They were the team to beat and by not reclaiming their spot in line or pushing Jordan out of the way in the video game challenge surely cost them. Its a shame because they are good guys who raced a near perfect race. Dan and Jordan are deserving too but Jet and Cord, like they said, can keep their head held high.
I also thought the challenges for the final leg were weak at best. We saw that a simple thing like a cabbie getting lost or not knowing where he was going completely put Brent and Caite out of the race with little hope of getting back into it.
Finally, the lesbians acted like complete asshole bitter bitches and not only did they make themselves look horrible, they made Caite look great! Caite took the high road and now hopefully she can overcome the stigma put on her by the blunder in the pageant. I think overall, she handled herself pretty well. Certainly better than the bitchy lesbians. I am a little surprised that TAR chose to show that footage as it kind of put a damper on the finish line celebration which is usually pretty awesome.
I love TAR but they need to step it up a bit. I'll miss watching it on Sunday night though.

I was glad Dan and Jordan could win if it couldn't be the cowboys, although it was a shame since they ran such a good race and kept pretty level headed the entire race for the most part. Something a lot of the races fail to do and usually ends up costing them the game.

I disagree Lorraine with them allowing Jordan to get ahead of them at the airport costing them the game. I think Dan and Jordan would have still won since them moving up to 1st class is what gave them the edge over the other teams and Dan was able to figure out that scrolling message quicker than the cowboys.

And as for Caite looking great? Surely you jest... she acted like a total asshole practically the entire race with her whinning and crying. Wanting th punch her boyfriend in the face, yelling at cabbies and calling them dumbasses? really that looked great to you? lol
Just because the one lesbian opened up her big mouth and made an ass of herself doesn't absolve Caite of her poor behavior in my opinion. Nor do I think coming in 3rd place on TAR is somehow a gauge of her intelligence, she's still an idiot and a rude one at that.

I can't believe I actually forgot to watch the finale. Oh well, after Jeff & Jordan left I wasn't super interested. I liked the cowboys, but am fine with the "bros" winning. It always cracked me up how they were constantly calling each other "bro".
I don't know what the lesbians said, but whatever it was doesn't surprise me. They looked stupid throught, imo.
Now, when's Big Brother starting, again? LOL

ONCE AGAIN, you are putting your own spin on my words. I said that the LESBIANS MADE CAITE LOOK GREAT!!!! I'm surprised you don't like her. She is exactly the kind of person you usually root for. The red heads a few seasons back, Chima, filthy Natalie. Interesting.

All I was saying is that this is a very young girl, still in her teens who has been put through the ringer because of her pageant blunder. She acted much better in my opinion than the lesbians who are more than twice her age. Caite still has a lot of growing up to do, but to continue to crucify her for a mistake made when she was what, 17, is just ridiculous.
