They remind me of Joey "Fitness" and Danny somewhat. Unlike Joey "Fitness" and Danny, I don't care for them.  I bet all they'll do is brag about taking off their shirts or such. Ugh.  :eww

I'm not going to mention anything actually spoiler-ish, but on the starting day of filming when they were pretty quickly identifed, I did a google search in Jamyes, and he is regarded as one of the hardest working performers in Las Vegas, and he works on stage in other shows in addition to the Chippendales revue. He's got a motor that doesn't quit.

As in the preview clip from CBS that was posted for a while last week, this team was wearing shirts (see the cast photos), but those shirts do not take away from their attractiveness.

This is my way of saying I like this team, and I think they have a lot of Race-useful attributes, both physical and mental.

I really like this team, they have strong potential.

The dynamic of gay/not-gay same gender team is interesting. How many times have we had that?

I also think they'll probably be a little cocky. But for me, it's in a good way (sort of a charmingly-over-their-heads way like Paul and Steve (TARAus2) and not in a incredibly arrogant and annoying way (Art&JJ))

There are three. maybe four, teams that I like this season, and Jamyes/James is one of them. Given how infrequent strong M/M teams have won over the last ten seasons, and the potential that any team can make mistakes the way the Race is structured now and end up being eliminated, I don't think disliking such teams on the potential that they might win makes any sense any longer. Given that two of the last three Races were won by F/F teams, and the third a married M/F team, you'd be hard pressed to say that a M/M team has a built in advantage.
What this team does seem to have going for it, (having seen a video the Chippendales made on the making of their 2012 calendar) is that Jaymes is particularly approachable, and sociable, and as the MC for the troupe's Las Vegas show, is a leader in the group, leading to a social skill set and in that type of setting also meaning they can make a good first impression on others. (Something to consider as to dealing with locals in other cultures and places.)
We haven't had a good best friends M/M team win in many a season, and the fact that one is gay and the other is straight ought to be seen as making that seem normal, and not unusual. We've had brother teams with that dynamic, and a male-female team, and a couple of parent-child teams, but not a same-***, best friends, gay-straight team. It isn't that uncommon any more especially with the younger generation, and nothing wrong in having it on TAR, a show that's never been reluctant to cast gay Racers in the past.

Las Vegad Review-Journal article previewing TAR 21 and the Chippendales'  Jamyes and James.

Interesting tidbit -- producers recruited the troupe and Jamyes in particular, and he chose his best friend James as his teammate; apparently they went through the casting process, and once they were chosen, they prepped by watching every single episode of TAR (that would be 20 seasons' worth) in marathon sessions. (Which I've always felt was the best way to watch the show because you do pick up rhythms that aren't apparent episode by episode.)

‘Amazing Race’ Gets Taste Of The Strip

Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis made for an intimidating sight when they arrived at the starting line for “The Amazing Race” (8 p.m. Sunday, KLAS-TV, Channel 8).

Between their sculpted physiques and Vaughan’s dog tags - not to mention that they were, in Davis’ words, “a whole foot taller than everybody” - the other teams assumed the Las Vegans were in the military.

Their competition’s reaction that day in Pasadena, Calif.? “Oh, man,” Davis recalls. “We’re screwed.”

“And then as soon as we kind of did the big reveal,” he says, “and busted out the cuffs and collars and the Chippendales logo shirts, ‘Oh, these guys are just - they’re just strippers.’ ”

“Which was awesome, ’cause that’s what we wanted,” Vaughan adds. Originally from Chesterfield, Va., the 30-year-old emcee of the Chippendales show at the Rio wears the dog tags in tribute to his father, who’s battling cancer.

They hadn’t seen much of “The Amazing Race” when producers approached Vaughan about forming a team with another member of the troupe. He only had one dancer in mind: his best friend, Davis, 27, from Jefferson, Maine.

“Once we found out we were on the show, we got way into it,” Vaughan admits. “We literally had, like, cram sessions where we’d go over to each other’s house and watch, like, a whole season, back to back to back to back to back. By the time we went on the show, we had watched, like, every single damn episode of ‘Amazing Race.’ ”

They realized their best strategy for the globe-trotting reality competition would be letting the other teams underestimate them. After all, they’re used to overcoming expectations.

“I think they wanted us to be, like, douche-bag strippers or something,” Vaughan says of the casting process.

“We were happy to show them otherwise,” Davis adds.

Their Chippendales experience gave them other advantages beyond the dumb-stripper stereotype.

“We already knew what it was like to kind of be living out of a suitcase, to always be on the go and to be constantly in a different place with unfamiliar languages, different cultures and different people,” Davis says of their previous Chippendales-related travels through Europe and Asia. “So we did have kind of that leg up.”

Then there’s the iconic wardrobe - or at least what passes for a wardrobe.

“It’s an international symbol. It’s recognized all over the world, and it transcends language,” Davis says. “So if you’re struggling trying to communicate, at least you can flash those cuffs and collars and maybe get some help or draw some attention.”

The duo isn’t allowed to say which countries they visited during the competition, because it could reveal how long they lasted. But this season, the show’s 21st, had teams racing across three continents and nine countries - including Indonesia, Bangladesh and the Netherlands - covering more than 25,000 miles.

“It’s a bucket list thing. I mean, the stuff you get to do,” Vaughan says of their reason for competing. “When you watch ‘Amazing Race’ seasons past, you see people jumping out of planes, jumping off of buildings, rappelling down the side of stuff, going to all these exotic, crazy, amazing destinations.”

The show’s $1 million prize - which, for the first time, will be doubled if the winners of the first leg win the entire competition - didn’t hurt, either.

But even their marathon viewing sessions didn’t prepare them for the realities of that much travel.

“It’s a lot more grueling than the show lets on. When you’re actually going through it, it’s a lot harder,” Davis reveals. “I always say, from the comfort of your couch, it’s always easier to make these kind of decisions. But when you’re tired, hungry and in an unfamiliar place, simple tasks start becoming a little more complicated.”

Vaughan’s lesson was more practical: “I never realized you could go so long without peeing, just because you’re so daggone distracted by all this other stuff you’re doing.”

As thrilled as they are to expose the Chippendales brand to viewers who may be outside the troupe’s usual demographic, don’t expect them to capitalize on their newfound celebrity by working the series into the live show.

“I don’t think anybody would wanna see an ‘Amazing Race’ number at Chippendales,” Vaughan says, laughing. “Nobody wants to see us look that bad.”

There’s so much upkeep involved in being a Chippendale - watching what you eat, working out, tanning, fussing with your hair, even the simple task of shaving - they relished the time away from all that.

“It was so nice to go and do this race and literally not care what we looked like and just be a mess,” Vaughan says.

“We’re gonna look like hell, I can promise you that. But it was nice to go and do.”

Surprisingly, I don't really dislike them as much as I thought I would. They seemed to be just like any average team who is humble and wants to race well.

Still keeping my eyes open and hope that one day I'll grow to adore them. :)

Jaymes is on the cover of the October issue of the Instinct magazine which is one of the most popular gay community magazine. I personally subscribe to it and the article and pictures were beyond fantastic. I will check to see if it is posted online and will post it here. Anyhow,  Instinct threw a party last night at Krave in Vegas celebrating Jaymes' cover release.

Here is a picture of Jaymes and James with the poster of Jaymes' cover of the magazine...

Yes, Will thank you for sharing the article; it is probably the best article that I have read in a really long time and the pictures...ugh sooo HOT!!!!  It's an article that shows the softer side of Jaymes and the struggles that he had to face.  I'm so happy that he is finally able to live the life that he had yearned to live.  Bravo to him, as well to his family, friends and everyone else in his life for not turning their back on him! 
I've been of fan of this team from the get-go.  I admit that I am a bit biased because I've seen Jaymes is person at the Rio in Las Vegas many times.  Let me tell you, he is one fine dancer and singer. He gets all the girls, (me included) going ;)
Thanks again for the article!

'Amazing Race' contestant from Maine

BY RAY ROUTHIER

Maine Sunday Telegram


Being on the CBS globe-trotting reality show "The Amazing Race" was not the first time James Davis had been around the world. But it does mark one of the few international trips Davis has taken with his shirt on for substantial periods of time.

Davis, who grew up in the small central Maine town of Jefferson, performs with the world famous Chippendales male touring revue.

Even if you don't know the Chippendales name, you've no doubt seen pictures of their famous bare-chested male dancers wearing little more than dapper bow ties and collars.

Davis, 27, has been competing on "The Amazing Race" since the show's fall season began Sept. 30. He and his teammate on the show -- fellow Chippendale Jaymes Vaughan -- are still alive in the big-money competition going into Sunday's episode. The episode was filmed in Bangladesh, and a CBS promo says that some of the racers will be seen working as "rat collectors."

That definitely sounds like a job a person needs to shirt up for.

How well Davis will do in Bangladesh, or how long he'll last on the show, is hard to say. CBS publicists say contestants aren't allowed to talk about their time on "The Amazing Race" until they get eliminated.

For this season, the show's producers sent 11 competing teams, consisting of two people each, around the world for about a month. At each exotic locale, the teams face tasks and challenges -- and failing at any can mean elimination.

The prize is usually $1 million. But this year, for the first time, contestants can double their money. If the couple that won the first leg of the race also wins the final leg, they'll take home $2 million.

For this season's episodes, according to CBS publicists, the teams were asked to rappel down 10 stories in Los Angeles, fry an egg on their heads in Indonesia and catch rats in Bangladesh, among other things.

The teams are usually made up of two folks who have some interesting connection. Sometimes they're siblings trying to reconnect, sometimes they're engaged, sometimes they have the same job.

In the case of Davis and his teammate, both are Chippendales performers living in Las Vegas. They list themselves on the show's media website as "best friends."

Davis grew up in tiny Jefferson, which lies just to the north of the Midcoast town of Waldoboro and southeast of Augusta. He went to school in Jefferson and later moved to Las Vegas, where he finished high school.

In his profile on the Chippendales website, Davis wrote that in Las Vegas, he began pursuing a career as a fashion and fitness model. In 2007, he said, he was "scouted" for the Chippendales world tour.

"I admit I was a little nervous during the casting as I had never danced before," wrote Davis. But he added that he did get to show off his skills as a guitarist by playing "Harder to Breathe" by Maroon 5. He doesn't say whether that performance was shirtless or not.

Davis then went through a two-week dance "boot camp" and shortly found himself dancing for 1,500 "screaming women" in Riga, Latvia, he wrote. He also wrote in his bio of the time in Zurich, Switzerland, when a crowd of women found out which hotel the Chippendales were staying at and swarmed it.

While Davis still has relatives in Maine, he doesn't say much about his home state or town in his bio other than this: "I always joke that there is more livestock than people in the town I'm from." And, he noted, he never misses his Sunday phone calls with his grandmother.

The final episode of this season of "The Amazing Race," when one team wins at least $1 million, will probably air in December, though CBS has not announced a definite air date.

Jaymes Vaughan

Chippendales emcee goes racing


They’ve taken their bow ties and cuffs off onstage, now they’re taking them on the road around the world. Best friends Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis are the hunky duo currently featured in the 21st season of Amazing Race. Vaughan, host and singer in Chippendales at Rio, had the time of his life competing against 10 other teams. Kiko Miyasato caught up with him to learn more about the journey.

Q: Why did you sign up for Amazing Race?
A: I found out that my dad has cancer, and so it was one of those things that hit me hard and didn’t feel real. And James was like, “Dude, we should definitely do the show and give the winnings to your dad.” And at that point I was like, “Yes!” I thought, here’s an opportunity to compete against 10 other teams and at the end of it come back with a million dollars. And James was like, “I just want to get my mom a car.” Once we decided the money was for our families there was no hesitation.

Q: What were the biggest difficulties?
A: We’ve traveled with Chippendales before, and we knew what it was like to be in a country where you don’t speak the language or you don’t know your way around. But there’s a difference between finishing your show and finding somewhere to eat, and getting clear to the other side of the country to follow a clue. Another thing is James and I are both 6 foot 4 inches. I think we were scary to some people.

Q: Did you need to step outside of your comfort zone?
A: I think the Amazing Race is completely about stepping outside your comfort zone. It’s about putting you in situations you wouldn’t normally be in. … Things that you think are the simplest tasks are the hardest. … It tests you to see how you are in a stressful situation, how you would treat other people. It shows your true colors.

Q: Did you discover anything about James during the race and vice versa?
A: We knew James had a short temper; we knew I had a controlling personality. But we’ve known that about each other for so long that we were able to use it to our advantage. You angry? Run faster. You want to control a situation? Fine, have a solution. But ultimately there was nothing that surprised us about one another; we know each other that well.

Q: Back at Chippendales, what’s new?
A: Our 2013 calendar just got done shooting. Shooting a calendar used to be a task, sometimes torture, because you had to watch your weight, make sure you got the right picture, etc., but after doing Amazing Race it was so simple. Trying to balance on a raft while staring up at a camera, not falling off and attempting to somehow look remotely ***y, well, that wasn’t a challenge at all.

Team Chippendales Jaymes and James from Amazing Race Support Spirit Day

Jaymes and James "Team Chippendales" from the Rio (currently featured on The Amazing Race), showed their support for Spirit Day, in Las Vegas with custom-designed purple cuffs and collars (Photo credit: Arlene Richie).

Spirit Day is an annual day when millions of Americans wear purple to speak out against bullying and to show their support for lesbian, gay, bi***ual and transgender (LGBT) youth.

Jaymes and James are in LA all week doing press.

Yesterday they did the NOH8 photo shoot with Adam Bouska. The official pictures will be released later.

Today they made an appearance on Access Hollywood and it aired earlier this evening. It was hilarious. Waiting to see if it got you-tubed and will post it if so.

Later they went to the TMZ studio and did an online skype chat with fans.

Not sure what other press they are doing the rest of the week but they have been tweeting a lot every day so I'll update on any other press they do.

I actually was kinda sad when Jaymes and James did not get eliminated on Leg 1.

But come to think of it, I'm actually GLAD we got to see more of them now. What a nice team who just wanted to enjoy the experience of the entire race and so hilarious/funny at times.

I don't usually support alpha male teams but there is something different to this team. They don't really dominate (or their aim is to just keep thrashing all the other teams), but rather they're just really really enjoying this whole experience.

Nice team to watch (race perspective) and nice team to watch (for my girlfriend). :res: :lol3:

As a master of ceremonies for the Chippendales, Jaymes is paid to talk.

When recounting what happened during the leg in those pit stop interviews, he's really good at getting the nuances of everything that happened to their team, and Jaymes is a good storyteller. So I can understand why the editors are using Jamyes a lot.

Jaymes' dad is battling one of the rarest form of cancer and was told it's incurable. He and his entire family are determined that he will beat it. He is currently going through chemotherapy. Jaymes and James are very active in fighting against cancer. They created a website and check out the link and share or promote it if you can.

Jaymes and James have been in NYC since Monday doing press all week. They did several radio appearances, some local TV shows, did interviews with MTV and People. Last night they went to see a broadway show called The Performers that featured Henry Winkler and Alicia Silverstone. They were shocked that they were in demand for pictures from the paparazzi on the red carpet. Here is an excellent picture of them:

But viewers may not know what fan favorite Jaymes Vaughan (who partnered with his best friend and fellow Chippendales dancer James Davis on the show) plans to do with the money if he wins.

Shortly before his Amazing Race adventure began, "I found out my father was diagnosed with one of the rarest cancers that there is," Vaughan, 31, tells PEOPLE. "At this point it's an incurable cancer, and we're trying to do everything we can to help him turn it into a curable cancer."

"The best way to do that is to give him financial support," he continues, "to be able to say, 'Hey, here's a house that's paid for, here's your bills paid for, here's all your medical expenses paid for. You just get better.' There's no better way to do that than with a million dollars."

Adds Davis, 27, "We're fortunate enough that we are young, we can work, we can work doubles. We can send checks home, we can take care of the folks."

"We don't need a million dollars right now, but we have parents who do," says Vaughan, before pointing out with a laugh, "I had braces twice because my parents knew I wanted to be in the entertainment industry. They didn't have money for that. Accutane without insurance! I was a mess. Thank you, Mom and Dad."

The singer and male revue performer has also launched the website FORGETCANCERNOW.com, in an effort to raise money to aid in his father's recovery. (It also features a moving video in which the best friends share why they'd give the prize money to their families should they win).

"My Dad always told me I could do anything I wanted," Vaughan writes on the site. "He encouraged me and made me feel like the world was mine to conquer. Now he is battling one of the rarest forms of cancer in the world, and he needs help to conquer it."

I agree Kavie, they've definitely earned respect for how they have been racing so far. They might have gone a bit overboard even trying to call a taxi for the Texan couple when racing to be first this leg.  :lol3:

But I love how self-depricating and humorous they are, and how they've been treating people they meet everywhere including the other teams. :)

Really looking forward to next week's episode, in my own city.  :hoot:    :hearts:

Agreed. I like how they keep watching out for other teams despite being in competition with them. Respect! :tup:

I was laughing when Jaymes said something like "Guys, we can't help each other if you run off"! Still helping Trey & Lexi when they can get first!

Well I don't think it's a clever thing to do, as they were racing for 1st this time! There would be a free trip if they get first so I don't think they need to help Trey/Lexi at this point, luckily they still got first.

I agree it may not be clever, but that's what I find respectable. They are willing to help someone else even with a trip at stake.

I think this leg gives a very strong indication that they will eventually win. Hopefully.

Anyway they should have wasted their U-Turn and chose the Twinnies, and hope that Trey and Lexi would be the next team at the U-Turn board and choose Ryan and Abbie instead.

Genius,

That would have accomplished absolutely nothing in real terms except it allows Jaymes and James to feel good because they did not implement the U-Turn on Ryan and Abbie. It still had the practical effect of allowing Ryan and Abbie to be eliminated.

I have to agree with apskip on that one. To take it one additional step, it should have been the Twinnies, as they wanted it to happen so much, but they got off the hook by winning the Fast Forward.

Honestly, I do not think there is a team that I have loved more wire-to-wire than the Chips.  Usually some teams grow on me as the season goes on, and some teams I dislike by the end of the season, but not with these two.  Wire-to-Wire.

He says they look like nice, handsome men and that they should win the whole thing. I agree, lol. We're on vacation for the finale, so I sure am hoping I can get to a tv.

It was like common sense and I did not dare to voice my concerns for fear that their many many fans will flame me for being negative and saying that their favourite team will not win.

Jaymes and James have been up since the wee hours doing press all day and pushing the word out of the fundraising to help Jaymes' Dad and then are working tonight. They have to be so tired. Jaymes is overwhelmed with the outpouring support from people and money are coming in. In fact just a bit ago while Jaymes were on stage, someone from the audience walked up to him and handed him a check. Their finale viewing party and fundraising event last night was a huge SUCCESS!

I meant to mention in my previous tweet that Jaymes said that one of the many reasons he and James did the Amazing Race, obviously to win the million dollar prize for Jaymes' Dad is that one of his Dad's prescriptions cost $2,500! That is outrageous!

I had figured that out when CBS had them flying around during NEL weeks doing press in L.A., but TPTB were right that this team would prove to be among the most popular I've seen in 11 years on the show.

But to be fair, they still almost won the million; I'm curious to see if anyone found out how close the teams were in arriving at the finish mat.

Yea... I know, it was just that I thought CBS didn't actually think that people could question that the fact that they were actually still raising funds for cancer means they didn't win. Maybe it was the fact that I think too much.

Anyway, I know that they are doing their best to raise money for Jaymes's dad's cancer funds.. but I don't like the fact that they are milking their new found fame for help... but then, who wouldn't? So let's hope they raise even more money than a million dollars so that their fans can get over the fact they didn't win. :/

Amazing Race's Jaymes and James: We Had a Lot of Taxi Trouble

Dec 11, 2012 02:36 PM ET
by Joyce Eng

Don't tell Jaymes and James they lost The Amazing Race yet. "Somebody did actually tweet that we won, so I retweeted it! I was like, "'Yeah!'" Jaymes tells TVGuide.com. "Spreading false information! [We'll] hashtag 'sorry, Josh and Brent'! We're proud of what we got. We got a silver medal in The Amazing Race. That's freakin' awesome. What an accomplishment for two guys who couldn't even find the abacus lady in the first leg to make it to the final leg in the Race." Despite falling behind early on the final leg, the fan-favorite Chippendales made up time at the final Roadblock, but it wasn't enough to overtake the Beekmans. Find out how close they were.

What was going through your head when you saw that you were second? You looked so devastated afterward.
Jaymes: We had two goals. Goal No. 1 was to win this money for our families, to take care of James' mom and to take care of my dad. Goal No. 2 was to get through the entire Race and to have a great time doing it. We accomplished the selfish goal of completing the last leg and we had hope we could win until we saw them. We're OK with second, but when you go on the Race with a goal like we had, it sucks to let your family down. ... That was the first time on the whole Race I was actually speechless. James had my back there. I was devastated. The cameras shut off and I didn't know I could cry like that. I just had to go to the corner and have a second after it was over because I really thought we were going to win. We really felt like we had something extra to make it happen.
James: You're grateful for the experience, but you also want to bring something back to the people who helped you out. While it was exhilarating to make it to the final three and come in second place, it was disappointing to not be able to help our families the way we originally intended and set out to do.

How far behind were you?
James: It was mere minutes. I don't know how it looked on TV, but it was mere minutes. The last challenge was really tough. Everyone struggled with it.
Jaymes: We had a lot of taxi trouble that you didn't really see. ... Our biggest challenge then was finding Gotham Hall. We thought it was something Batman was at! [Laughs] Finally, a police department helped us. ... We got to that last challenge pretty far behind. Because everyone struggled, I don't think many people realized how fast James did that. We didn't know the "hellos" and "goodbyes," but we did learn "please" and "thank you" because that's what you should learn to be polite. We had a good knowledge of what the languages were.
James: I could kind of sound it out for certain countries where I knew the flag and I felt pretty confident. I felt like I was able to make up some ground as far as the time we lost from being behind after the boardwalk. Unfortunately, it wasn't quite fast enough to close the gap and pass Josh and Brent.

Do you think the time you wasted at the boardwalk did you in?
Jaymes: No. I think it was our taxi trouble, to be honest. We had amazing taxis the entire Race and it finally caught up to us. I would love to do a Race where there were no taxis. Whenever we had to drive, we were first or second. ... It's nothing against these taxi drivers. They can't possibly know every location in every city. No one's the Yellow Pages. It's just unfortunate our bad taxi luck kicked in trying to find Lombardi's, trying to find Gotham Hall. I don't even know when we got lost because we don't know our way around the city! We saw the sights, so that was nice! [Laughs] We circled Lombardi's about 16 times before we got there. Then our taxi driver just took off and left us in the dust.

How long did it take for you to see the sign at Coney Island?
James: We had tunnel vision at that stage. It was the last leg and we were absolutely certain it was going to be some crazy ride. We just completely missed it. But even at that point, we weren't that far behind. They discovered it a little quicker, but it wasn't fatal. But then our taxi left us! All those little setbacks add up until you have a bigger time deficit than you started with.

Do you have poor observational skills? You missed the abacus lady during the first leg and now this.
Jaymes: [Laughs] We even said that this was the doggone abacus lady in New York City. Here she is and we can't find her again. But on the first leg, it took us from the front to the back. We really were not that far behind after the New York abacus lady.

How strong was the alliance between you, Natalie and Nadiya, and Trey and Lexi?
Jaymes: The alliance may have looked intense, but it was just working with people that you've clicked with and spent time with. I think what people forget when they watch is that we Racers don't see everyone or everything. You do at home because the show is edited to show everything and everyone. We enjoyed Trey and Lexi's and the twins' company. We hadn't met the Beekmans really. We had been separated from them and when we spent time with them in Spain and France, we were like, "Oh, we like you guys too! Let's race around France together!" I think had we met Josh and Brent earlier, we would've had a great time with them and we probably would've had an alliance of four. And we're so happy they won. But it's weird how you could be running the Race and not get to know anyone for days. We didn't even get to talk to James and Abba until Russia.

Abbie and Ryan said you guys had an alliance early on and that's why they were so upset with you U-Turning them. Did you?
Jaymes: We didn't want to do that to anyone. We met a lot of amazing people on the Race.

How's your dad doing?
Jaymes: My dad's a fighter. You tell him that he has incurable cancer and he's going to say, "Hey, I'm going to show you that it actually is curable." He's in a huge treatment plan of chemo and radiation. We started a website to help with all the expenses that come with it, www.forgetcancernow.com. If every Amazing Race fan donated $1, we could take care of everything. People don't realize the value of $1. It's been amazing just seeing the support from people. My dad's prescriptions are $2,500 per prescription. I want to call my parents and say, "Hey, this is paid for." James and I believe that your parents take care of you when you're a kid and then you take care of them when you're an adult. We were given this platform for a reason. I firmly believe that we were put on a national television show at this time, even though we did not win, to still raise the money to take care of my dad.

Are the cars a nice consolation?
James: Do we actually get cars or do they just say that? [Laughs]
Jaymes: I can't wait to see James give his mom the car. That was his goal: I can't wait to get my mom a car with the $1 million. We were neck-and-neck with Trey and Lexi, and we just happened to get there before them and I think it was because James' mom was supposed to get this car. I'm giving my parents my car and they're gonna sell it to pay for my dad's medical expenses. The trips are nice, but the cars can help our parents. It was definitely the best leg for us to win besides the final leg.

The Amazing Race 21: Exclusive Interview with Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis

Posted on 12/11/2012
by Gina Scarpa

The Amazing Race, for Chippendales dancers Jaymes and James, was almost over before the first leg even ended. They barely escaped elimination in China, then went on to become both frontrunners and fan favorites. Competitive and charismatic, they proved that nice guys can finish... well, second. We caught up with the pair to talk about their Amazing Race finish on Sunday night's finale, and their experiences along the way.

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: How did it come to be that you were part of The Amazing Race this season?
A. Jaymes: The power of Facebook, seriously! They had the idea to have a Chippendales on the show and they found me on Facebook because I guess they had read some articles talking about me. They asked if I was interested and I thought they were joking. I made them call me from their CBS phone. I said if "I'm doing this, I only have one choice. I'm not doing this with anybody else." I wanted somebody who had the same philosophy as me, that could have a good time no matter what.
A. James: We weren't sure how we were going to be received. We were nervous about diving in.
A. Jaymes: We wanted to maintain that we're not the stereotype. So we weren't going to do it but then my dad was diagnosed with cancer and we didn't know what to do. How were they going to pay for everything? There was a chance for a million dollars right in front of us.

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: You almost went home during the first leg! How worried were you, in China, that your journey was going to be over before it really even began?
A. Jaymes: How worried were we?! Oh my gosh! We were looking for that woman with the abacus. We weren't thinking to look for a lady, with a child, with an abacus on her lap. Lo and behold, the first step towards becoming friends with Trey and Lexi was telling them where the pit stop was and they showed us where the woman with the abacus was. Thank god for them, we love them to death!

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: You were battling some injuries along the way, especially during that dancing challenge in Russia. How bad was it?
A. Jaymes: I wear a size 14 shoe, James wears a size 10 1/2. His foot was so swollen, I had to give him my shoe and it still didn't fit. He looked like he had a clown foot. It was ridiculous. I have no idea how we battled through that. I was so proud of him!

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: Why were you so interested in running the final leg with Trey and Lexi, and Natalie and Nadiya?
A. James: From day one, we wanted to race with fun people that were going to be competitive and not be negative. That's who we wanted to race for the million dollars with. For the most part, it worked out pretty well. Ultimately, it's still a race and you still have to get your team to the final leg and complete those challenges as fast as you can.
A. Jaymes: I know the twins don't come across well... that's just a small portion. A lot of what they said was in jest, and in response to someone else. They were hilarious. They're our Amazing Race family. Their energy was infectious. Trey and Lexi, just their goodwill, was infectious. We thought, "Why not have a good time with these people?"

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: Going into that last leg, you were in first, you had won the cars... how confident were you feeling?
A. Jaymes: James' first goal was to win a car for his mom and to achieve that, you feel like your'e at the top of the world. When you're in first place, going into the final leg...
A. James: You're riding an all-time high! All the momentum was in our favor. We were at the home stretch and we were like, "Let's take this million home."

Q. Gina, RealityWanted: You guys had one of the best attitudes of any team I've seen over the years and that's won you a lot of fans. What's that support and feedback been like for you?
A. Jaymes: Listen, the most amazing thing, I think, is that we get so many kids sending us fan mail, parents sending us Tweets thanking us for showing that you can be polite, and you never know who's watching. I have nieces and nephews who watch. You can still be successful by being nice. We played fair, we played honest, and that's a great feeling to leave with and a great example to set for the next generation of people.
A. James: I never imagined myself as a role model but it's cool to see these people looking up to us. It feels really good to have someone younger saying, "I watched the show because of you and I look up to you."

Jaymes Vaughan of Chippendales and Amazing Race on cover of Instinct Magazine



(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-25NN8F0A3P8/UFtPvijNNKI/AAAAAAAAE6A/zifUskHmB6w/s400/oct_12_cover.jpg)



The October Issue of Instinct has always been a "vacation/travel" issue, with great gay destinations near and far  to explore—and the 2012 edition is certainly no exception. This year, Instinct managed to find a cover guy who is not just easy on the eyes, but also knows a thing or two about frequent flying. That’s because this month, The Amazing Race contestant Jaymes Vaughan is opening up his baggage and telling all to Instinct! 

Frequent Las Vegas visitors may recognize Jaymes from his hosting gig of the Chippendales show, but Instinct gets all up close and personal with this Southern boy in this month’s cover story, “The Incredible Journey.” Jaymes shares that though he may have literally been around the world and back for a reality show, it’s his journey of self-discovery that he’s most proud of. From a sheltered, religious upbringing to eventually setting up roots in, of all places, Sin City, this charmer is proving true beauty is, in fact, more than skin deep.

Jaymes was floored by the kindness of total strangers yesterday. He was handed an Ipad for his Dad so that he can skype with him while he gets chemo treatments and round-trip airline tickets so that Jaymes can go visit his Dad and the family. Jaymes is going home next weekend to be with his family for Christmas. Not just that, Jaymes is overwhelmed that donations is coming from all over the world, namely Canada, Australia, Asia, England, New Zealand among others.

Here's the pic he tweeted of the Ipad and plane tickets

WOW!!!! Jaymes & James are ON FIRE!!!!!

I don't think they could actually got this famous by being in TAR

They were literally 15 seconds away from the 1st elimination  :cmas18

I honestly thought they wouldn't last that long. My prediction is that they will be out in like 7th or 6th place
But since they got this "too strong" of an edit in leg 4 or 5, I was like "They showed us like too much of them, seriously. They're definetely going far"

But I guess the teams that got strong edit rarely win.  :cmas4

But in the other hand, had they won, I don't think the fund raiser would be a huge success.   :cmas26
Dang, they could raise more than a million dollars in a blink.

Well I Guess God does always have a better way...  :cmas16

DEFINETELY, NO DOUBT, A THOUSAND PERCENT ALL STARS LOCK!!!!  :cmas32: :cmas32: :cmas32:

But I don't know. I doubt they'll accept the offer though. They don't really seem like a Reality show freaks, like Brendon&Rachel, or Rob&Amber, or Ryan  :cmas27
Besides, I just assume post the show, they'll have way more things and stuffs to do ..

Just saw the part 2 interview on realitytvworld, I'm a bit disappointed of them when the interviewer asked them several times on the u turn decision on Ryan/Abbie and the friendship with them before that leg, they just refused to answer the questions and said something irrelevant instead. To me this is not an appropriate response and it just makes me feel that they really back-stabbed others.

I like this team but sometimes I feel like they protect themselves too much which make them look like hypocrites.

CHIPPENDALES, ‘AMAZING RACE’ STAR JAYMES VAUGHAN IS HOT, FANS SAY

Posted January 2, 2013 • 7:41 p.m.
by: Robin Leach


Congratulations to Chippendales at The Rio star Jaymes Vaughan, who has another reason to celebrate as 2012 ends and 2013 begins.

Jaymes, who with best friend James Davis placed second on the most recent Season 21 of CBS’ “The Amazing Race,” has now won the readers poll for RealityNation.com’s Best of 2012 as the Hottest Male Reality TV Star.

With more than 35 percent of the vote placing Jaymes in the top spot, the handsome hunk was followed by Malcolm Freberg of “Survivor: Philippines” with 18 percent and Shane Meaney of “Big Brother” with 15.7 percent. All CBS series. Hmmm …

Viewers and readers voted on the award, so it’s a great accomplishment considering the number of reality TV shows and male stars nowadays.

Yesterday was my 48th birthday and today is James' 28th birthday. I tweeted him to wish him a happy birthday and told him that my birthday was yesterday. He tweeted me back.....Go Capricorns....Happy Bday to me. YAY! Stoked that James and I almost have the same birthdays, just a day apart but 20 years older than him. Jaymes will turn 31 on April 15th.

This has to be James' worst birthday ever as he received word that his 88 years old grandmother unexpectedly passed away this afternoon. My heart goes out to him and his family.

Ironically the same thing happened to me back in 1998 when my 95 years old grandmother passed away on my 33rd birthday.

James said he will always remember her on his birthdays.

A class of fourth graders and their teacher from Mississippi sent Jaymes and James a huge parcel which arrived at Vegas yesterday. Since James was in Phoenix, AZ, Jaymes had to wait for him to return to Vegas tonight so they could open the package together. Jaymes tweeted the picture of the parcel....

Once James returned to Vegas tonight, they opened the package. They got a whole bunch of Mardi Gras stuff and Ole Mississippi swag. Caps included. Jaymes tweeted the pic so the teacher can show it to his students on Monday morning... (the class and the teacher are huge fans of the boys from the  Amazing Race)

Jaymes, James and 3 other Chippendales flew in NYC last night. Apparently they are making an appearance on The View. Waiting on word if it airs today or if it is being pre-taped.

I just finished watching Jaymes and James on The Marie Osmond Show. It was fantastic. Jaymes choked once talking about his dad and James had to finish it for him but then he was able to speak again. It was so good and a must see. I hope it gets you-tubed. I will post it if there will be one.

Meanwhile, Jaymes and James are getting painted on at The View to tape their appearance to air tomorrow...

RFW 's post have been about Jaymes and James, and what they're up to post Race. That's no different than others posting about other media-savvy teams who have had a constant media presence from other seasons. Doesn't bother me at all. In addition, most of their activities have been publicity appearances on various TV and radio shows, and indirectly promotes TAR. :)

Amazing Race Star Jaymes Vaughan Releases Song to Help His Father

(http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc289/CuteboiWill/Will%20Is%20A%20Reality%20Freak/JaymesPeople.jpg)

Jaymes Vaughan wanted to win The Amazing Race to raise funds for his father, who has been battling a rare form of cancer.

The fan favorite, a Chippendales dancer in Las Vegas, came up just short by finishing second, but he hasn't stopped trying to help his dad, Ed Vaughan.

His latest effort: moving up the release date of his new single, "Tonight," when his father's health took a turn for the worse. Proceeds from the song will go toward Ed's care and Jaymes says he was determined to release it while his father is here to see it.

"The song is all about making the most of one night and I think that's actually pretty fitting right now," he says of the upbeat dance track, which is available on iTunes and Amazon.

"I'm happy I get to share this moment with him, I just wish it was on completely different terms," Jaymes adds to PEOPLE. "Honestly, it sucks. But my dad always told me to look at the bright side of things, so that's what I'm going to do. "

"I am very proud of all of his accomplishments," adds Ed of his son, "but I'm even prouder of the way he has stepped up to the plate to help me."

As for his father's fight and fans' efforts to help, Jaymes tells PEOPLE, "I'm honestly very moved and can not thank everyone enough. I can not believe how much people from all over the world have stepped up to help my dad, whether its through donations, prayers or positive thoughts."

"Miracles can always happen, and I haven't given up hope," he adds. "So please, keep praying."

The issue would be that they would have to pay federal and state income taxes on their winnings, including the Fords. Not to mention any title and registration fees in whatever state they would file as residents.

Thus, by selling the Fords. Jaymes and James have the cash to pay the taxes, and can use the remainder the ways that are mentioned (medical bills for Jaymes dad, and buying a vehicle for James' mom.

They had massive flight delays by like four hours so Jaymes introduced James to Bojangles Chicken which James never had it before and he's a changed person forever! He said it was the best taste ever!

Jaymes and James received a huge package from the 4th graders at Saucier Elementary school at Mississippi. It contained various t-shirts from places the students visited recently, various games, gag stuff and tons of candies. Jaymes and James were having way too much fun last night with their toys especially the whoopee cushions....

Jaymes and James' new song, Light Up The Skies has been released this morning on i-tunes. Here is a fantastic article about their new song....

For Those About To Rock: Jaymes & James Team Up Musically


Jaymes & James captivated America as the hunky, relentlessly optimistic duo who wound up coming in second place on The Amazing Race. The guys were representing Chippendales, but they were hoping the million-dollar prize would help with the bills associated with Jaymes's dad's cancer. Sadly, his father passed away in March ("I got the best guardian angel in the world now," Jaymes says), but this duo's deep friendship has kept their personal and professional collaboration alive.

Today, Jaymes & James (who were innocent bystanders when Lance Bass made his concerned comments about Amanda Bynes, which led to another round of "ugly" comments from the troubled ex-starlet) are releasing their first single, the melodic thumper "Light Up the Skies," produced by Tanzer, and available at iTunes.

I spoke with the guys to get the latest on their plans...

Boy Culture: Tell me how you decided to merge your very different musical styles?

Jaymes: We both have very different backgrounds. I have a country and pop background and James has a progressive metal background. But surprisingly, it kind of just came together very well. We give and take pretty easy with each other. We know when to push and when not to. And yes, we are still talking about music here!

James: Our first single, "Light Up the Skies," was just a no-brainer. It's about seizing a moment and giving it a shot.

Jaymes: To me, it's about losing my dad and making the most of every moment after to make him proud. I always wanted him to see me win a Grammy and now that he's in heaven and can see everything, I'm gonna make sure he does, dammit.

James: It's also about us taking the leap to start this journey together. And it's even got a few hints of the fear you face when starting a new relationship.

Jaymes: It's purposely got multiple meanings, but the underlying message is the same: "We've got tonight...that's our only guarantee, so...let's light up the skies."

BC: What approach did you take when you decided to team up musically?

James: It's all about having fun and making the most of the moment.

Jaymes: Our personal mantra.

BC: So you didn't fight at all over songs and creative choices?

James: We don't fight. Why would I want to be friends with someone I fight with? We are doing this to have fun on another adventure together. Just like we said on The Amazing Race, things like this are like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, don't waste it by fighting.

Jaymes: And our debut single we worked on with mega-producer Tanzer, so it was kind of like we had a referee of sorts in the room to help us blend our styles. I think we got it. I think it's like Kings of Leon meets Flo Rida.

BC: What do you each admire about the other as a musician?

Jaymes: James sticks to his guns. If he feels a certain way about a melody or a lyric, he won't back down, which artistically I admire so much. Where as I second-guess myself a lot. He always stands firm.

James: One thing I musically appreciate about Vaughan is his ability to breathe life into whatever lyrics he sings. He truly makes it unique in his own way.

BC: Tell me something about each other that no one knows.

Jaymes: Um, unfortunately, I think we accidentally put it all on the table for the world to see on The Race. I'm clumsy, I walk into doors, trip over things in plain sight, while unfortunately missing clues that are also in plain sight. Grace is not my strong suit. In the least. It's cool. We are representing for the clumsy kids of the world.

James: I think a lot of people don't reallize what major outcasts we were growing up. How much bullying we endured. That's something a lot of people don't know that we actually want them to know.

Jaymes: And I think it's important to put that out there not as a dark secret but as a message to realize we overcame that, and anyone else can to. It sounds cliché, but honestly, it really does get better. Kids need to know that. I was gay and from a mixed race family in the South. It was torture. Not the mention that I had an awkward phase that lasted about 14 years. But I made it. And you can, too.

BC: Give me some dish on the celebrity guys who've been rotating in and out of Chippendales!

James: Well, coming up this June we have Ian Ziering, and he's so excited that it's injecting all kinds of new energy into the show.

Jaymes: He's genuinely excited about the show, which is awesome. And I think he is gonna be really good. Not to mention our ticket sales are gonna go way up. They actually have gone up tremendously since The Race. We are sold out so much that they've actually added even more shows to our schedule. We are now seven nights a week with 10 shows total a week. And with Ian there, I think that number is only going to go up.

BC: Were you crushed when you came in second on The Amazing Race? Happy for the winners?

Jaymes: Of course we were crushed. I mean...who wouldn't be? But then, as soon as we got the chance to process it, we were like, "Holy cow! Look what we did! We made it to the end!"

James: That, in and of itself, is something to be so proud of. And of course we were happy for Josh and Brent.

Jaymes: They did so many things to help out charities and the less fortunate with their money, so how could you be mad at that? Josh and I still joke we are going back on the race together as a team instead. Only this time, he will be in drag as Aquadisiac. Basically, RuPaul's Drag Race meets The Amazing Race. I love it. Unfortunately, I doubt that'll ever happen.

BC: Will you sing about your Amazing Race experience?

James: Yeah—it's called "Confused, Disoriented, Hungry, Can't Count and Can't Find Stuff When It's Right in Front of Our Face."

Jaymes: Wait, that actually does sound like a pretty good country song...maybe I'll work on that for a side project.

James: I hope you're kidding.

Jaymes: I am. Sorta.

BC: You need a gay/straight version of "Ebony & Ivory!" Anything thematic like that coming up?

Jaymes: I'm sorry—I can't stop laughing long enough to answer that. James is now singing at the top of his lungs.

James: Yeah...nothing like that in the immediate works.

Jamyes and James are one of the more successfully visible teams that has been on TAR.
Rob and Amber had an afterlife, thanks to Survivor; so have the Globetrotters, and there have been individual Racers, such as Reichen, and Alex Boylan, who have remained visible for years after their seasons.
