They seem a lot like Herb & Nate. However, I think they will be more likable to me than Herb & Nate were. I can already tell that every confessional is going to be like doing sports commentating for them, which could either be a good thing or a bad thing.

I think they're another sports team and I don't really like those, but hopefully they make good tv.

I don't like them at all, since they seem too arrogant especially Chester!

Arrogance in the race usually is a major downfall, and flaw.

Not a fan of them. Better out soon.

Elimination Interview: Chester and Ephraim

Posted on Oct 14, 2013 03:50pm

Read what Chester and Ephraim said about their elimination from the Race and if they'd do anything differently!

Nancy J: It was hard to watch you be eliminated tonight due to cancelled flights. I admired how you maintained good humor throughout the day. Is there another team you will be rooting for now?
Ephraim
- I will be rooting for Danny and Tim. I'm team Oklahoma now.
Chester - If I have to pick a team to root for. I'm going to go with the ER Doctors.

Marisa H: What kept you guys from having a total meltdown? What was your favorite experience during the season? You guys kept it together during that disaster.
Ephraim
- I would not have a meltdown. Just keeping everything in perspective. Certain things you can't control. The only thing you can control is how to react to them.
Chester - If anger and frustration would have gotten us to Portugal faster we would have gotten angry and frustrated, but at the end of the day that behavior would not have gotten us there any sooner so it would not make any sense to behave like that.

Araina S: Do you feel that you should have been allowed to have a second chance back into the game, considering things were sort of out of your control with the planes and scheduling?
Ephraim
- No, the game is the game. I would have liked for it to be a non-elimination leg, but if you decide to do something than you have to be accountable for your actions.
Chester - The rules are the rules and they are in play. Would we have liked for it to happen, yes! But just because we got a raw deal, it is what it is.

Robin H: To NFL Players, if you could do it would have kept your original tickets? Three transfers is a lot for any trip.
Ephraim
- We would have preferred to take the flight that we tried to book first.
Chester - We would have preferred the flight that we deserved because we finished first in the last leg and should have been on the first flight. All those crazy stops happened because of the ticket agent's mistake.

Corey S: Exactly how many hours were you guys behind?
Chester
- 22 hours and 33 minutes
Ephraim - That's a pretty good assessment. We were about a day behind.

Felipe R: If you were invited back to the show, what would you guys do differently?
Ephraim
- Make sure the travel agent didn't make an error.
Chester - No matter what stay with the pack and lean on our abilities to get us through.

I've got to say they were a bit of a surprise for me. I was going into the season expecting to be reasonably neutral about them but I really think they did well in leaving an impression, They did well for the two legs they competed in and they maintained a positive attitude even during their flight problems. I do think they are a good solid pick for the next season, Had they not had the flight problems I'd say they would of made it far say Top 5. I wouldn't say no to them returning.
