#TheGreenTeam



Name: Justin Scheman
Age: 39
Hometown: Bronx, N.Y.
Connection to your teammate: Fiancé 
Current occupation: Morning radio personality
Describe what you do: I help people start their day with a smile. Also, I create and deliver four hours of content on the radio & online each morning and record and edit audio/video for web content.
3 words to describe you: Passionate, loyal and straight-forward.
Favorite hobbies: Photography/videography, video games, travel and learning new skills/talents.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Besides proposing to Diana with her own Amazing Race (the video went viral), I'm proud of all of the lives I have been able to change through my job. 
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Bruce Willis - a really down to earth guy who tells it like it is, a tough guy with a soft heart.\
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Eliza Dushku- can hang out with the guys, has an amazing heart and infectious smile.
What scares you most about traveling? The lack of a second language and knowledge of some customs.
What excites you most about traveling? The different cultures, seeing the beauty of mother nature, sense of accomplishment, growing as a person and seeing the world through Diana’s eyes.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Diana likes to finish my thoughts for me and then have a retort ready for points I was never trying to make. We both need to listen and hear what the other is actually trying to say.
Pet peeve about your teammate: She doesn’t answer direct questions with direct answers.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Bora Bora; it looks like paradise. Alaska; one of the last frontiers. The UK; to visit the castles and history.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Travel the world, experience different cultures with the most beautiful person in the world. I want to add an unbelievable chapter to our “book of life” which is one step closer to happily ever after. I want to show her how strong and smart she really is. I love watching her grow as a person.

Name:  Diana Bishop
Age:  30
Hometown: Sharon Hill, Pa. 
Connection to your teammate: Fiancée   
Current occupation: 6th grade teacher
Describe what you do: I create lessons that teach reading skills to 6th graders, and then use those lessons to teach students how to read and understand various types of writing.
3 words to describe you: Go-getter, sensitive and passionate.
Favorite hobbies: Arts and crafts, reading and exploring new places.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I am most proud of my teaching career. I have wanted to teach since I was 5 years old. Teaching for me is not just "what I do"...it’s part of who I am. Watching my students learn and develop throughout the school year is extremely rewarding!
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Zooey Deschanel. She isn't afraid to be herself, she's super goofy and can hang out with anyone.
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Vin Diesel.  He has a tough exterior, but a soft heart.
What scares you most about traveling? The unknown! Unfamiliar places, language barriers, different customs and laws can be very scary and intimidating.
What excites you most about traveling? The unknown! It's exciting to explore new sights, meet new people, experience new cultures and see the beauty of new places.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Sometimes the “New Yorker” in Justin comes out. I shut down and do not want to talk to him!
Pet peeve about your teammate: Justin always needs to be right.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would most like to visit Italy and the UK because my grandparents are from there. I am interested to see where my family roots started and where my grandparents grew up.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I would love to travel around the world and experience the different cultures that I read and learn about. I hope to come home with a deeper appreciation of the diversity in the world.

This was their video btw! It's been posted on here, but I think it's relevant since they're now actually on the show :lol:

Love that Diana gets to live her dream and Race, and great to know that Justin knows the achilles heel of several TAR teams and prepared (stick-shift, swimming, etc.), should be fun to see them go!

The "Amazing Race" Proposal, is one of the best proposals I've seen. It's definitely a great achievement. Very fun couple, this will be exciting to watch.

I wasn't too sure about them when I first seen them, but having heard more and more about them, and their story I'm gonna be rooting for them.  :hoot:

It's about time a team of Superfans actually do well on the race.  (Gary & Will, and Dennis & Isabelle, I'm looking at you)  So lets hope these guys break the curse.  :<3

There actually haven't been as many superfans on TAR as have been cast on Survivor. And I always like that - seeing people who really want to be there and are not just some indifferent recruits.
Waiting to see them :cheer:

I thought I was going to dislike them because they felt Brendon/Rachelish (BLAME THE GREEN THEME) when I first saw the cast photos.

BUT NO. THE INTRO VID + PROPOSAL VID = PLZ WIN ALREADY :funny:

This is the kind of team the Amazing Race needs more of: fans of the show that have been dreaming of running the race for real for years.  The first episode was great storytelling.  Justin (and likely Diana too, but it focused on Justin) is a fan and J/D got the lead early.  They decide to take a risk that didn't work out.  I felt for him.  The first goal was to get the Express Pass.  It failed, but when they lost time to get to the detour, they fell behind and his fear of elimination kicked in, and that when the story arc took off.  He felt hopeless, waiting for some ray of hope, and he got it when he spotted other teams still doing the puzzles.  He didn't want to be eliminated because his dream of running the race would be cut short and end after one leg.  It made me want to cheer for them.  This is now a team I want to see go far.

Find the most interesting version of yourself and highlight that part of who you are. Explain how things in your life have prepared you for the race. DONT BE FAKE they will see right through it. What would you really do to win that million? Speak from the heart at some point. Make the first 20 seconds COUNT!

I like them. They kind of have a Colin & Christie thing going on with them, both in racing skill and in me wondering "What kind of stuff is getting left out?" Such as when Diana makes a complaint about Justin and we're supposed to think "Ooooh she's had enough of him", but then for a split second before the camera cuts she has a huge grin on her face. I can tell there's more to them then what's being shown and I'd like to know the "real" them, not the "10 total minutes of screen time with very obviously not from that moment insults" them. I know your games, Amazing Race editors, you can't fool me with your soundbites that have a completely different tone and are coincidentally when the people are off screen or facing away from the camera.


Of course since I like them they won't win. They'll probably place second or something, just to get my hopes up. (I didn't just spoil you, I don't read those.)

Post by: Best Loser on November 21, 2015, 02:07:29 PM
I'd argue Jaime & Cara, the Twinnies, and Brendan & Rachel are bigger examples of polarizing. Maybe the Afghanimals.



I think it'd be great if Justin & Diana won. Not only because I like them but also because some people really dislike them for some reason and I enjoy schadenfreude.

When the race started, I liked them a lot.
Then started to dislike their (Justin's) behaviour, until I eventually started liking them (a bit) again.

This leg was just (:;)
So annoying, so stupid, so irritating :gaah: No words to describe.

ETA: this self called superfan doesn't even remember Davechel's record :groan:

Enough.
 
 
Quote


While it is perfectly fine to explain why you think a racer or a team
did not do well in a task, or behaved badly, or just isn't your favorite, it is
NOT okay to be rude or impolite in doing so. We don't allow personal attacks on
each other or on our racer friends. Comments on how they raced are fair,
personal attacks are not.

 
If you want to discuss their racing and what they did right/wrong...great! But enough on the annoying  blahblah
If you have a specific racing example where you were bothered, discuss and explain. But this forum is for discussion of the SHOW, what you saw, how they raced.  If  you can't say anything but they are annoying without out any discussion...then just don't post.

But it's our opinion if we want to say they're annoying or not.

Joey/Meghan had almost as many opinions like that. So did Natalie/Nadiya and some other teams. But they didn't get any intervention at all in regards to posting.

Just my two cents.

You are welcome to express your opinion on the race and the teams and their race activities here.

But it's our opinion if we want to say they're annoying or not.

Joey/Meghan had almost as many opinions like that. So did Natalie/Nadiya and some other teams. But they didn't get any intervention at all in regards to posting.

Just my two cents.

Very true.

I think there are some double standards due to the fact they are in this forum. Which still doesn't make such decisions right. :gnome

Justin, I would sincerely apologize to you if you see this. I think you and Diana are good person and personality outside of race, and I know that you really enjoy the experience of racing around the world with Diana, and I personally appreciate your enthusiasm on TAR.

I think the biggest problem on your team was your enthusiasm didn't translate well on TV and TAR fans, and it was rather annoying and irritating to enjoy. I have to say that it's not your fault at all for contributing the annoyance, so I'm 100% fully blame for producer and editor for not edit your team appropriately.

So once again I think you and Diana are good person outside of the race, but sadly I can't enjoy y'all as TV character because the producer and editor doing a very poor job to portrayed your team.

^ I agree with that so much.
And even though I FULLY UNDERSTAND it's not their fault and foremost, it's not THEM (aka annoying) in real life. But still, from a viewer's standpoint, this is what we all got. And I'm not liking my experience as a viewer towards such edit.

But really, Justin, I don't want you to feel like there are some personal attacks :( They are not, and I am sorry if I (or anyone else) made it seem that way. You're the one who knows best what your team was like on the race, and what it is portrayed like on TV.

I really like them as as a team and as people right from the start. They have that superfan tag that, honestly, we all want if we ever have the chance to get on this show. Them being great on the show also shows that us superfans also have a chance of being great on the show. Justin's a bit obnoxious, but seeing what they have done, winning at least 7 legs at this point, isn't that a bit justified? Them fighting is showing them as people, they are not perfect. Though I do tend to side with Diana on their fights, especially when Justin gets a bit self-righteous at some moments. This is an effect of being a know-it-all, which I can relate to as I know I can be like that at times.

Jessica from RHAP, did point out something that made me more at ease with this team than most people, though. They are being given the Rob & Amber edit, they aren't the team that would win, they are the team to beat. So judging from the edit, they probably wouldn't win, but I still prefer them winning over the other two teams (with Chris & Logan being a very close second, and Kelsey & Joey being a very close, yet somewhat ironic third). Nothing but love from me for these teams, and this season I guess  :hearts:

Exclusive: 'The Amazing Race's runner-up team Justin Scheman and Diana Bishop talk (Part 1)



               
 

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 12/14/2015


The Amazing Race's "Engaged Couple and Amazing Race Super Fans" Justin Scheman and Diana Bishop finished Season 27 as the runner-up team during Friday night's finale broadcast on CBS.



Justin and Diana were defeated by the $1 million winners Kelsey Gerckens and Joey Buttitta, who are "Dating Co-Workers and News Anchors" and conquered five continents, 10 countries and more than 34,000 miles. "Dating Paparazzi Business Partners" Logan Fazio and Chris Gordon finished in third place.

During an exclusive interview with Reality TV World on Monday, Justin and Diana talked about their The Amazing Race experience. Below is the first half. Check back with us soon for the concluding portion.

 

Reality TV World: Justin, you said at the end of the finale broadcast you might never be able to get over losing. How do you feel now? Has the sting subsided at all?

Justin Scheman: A little bit I guess! Yeah. I'm sure I'll get over it at some point, but I don't think I can watch the episode without being emotional.

Reality TV World: Kelsey and Joey told me they think you guys arrived at the finish line about 45 minutes behind them? Does that sound about right?

Justin Scheman: No. (Laughs)

Diana Bishop: I was thinking closer, like, 15 or 20 minutes maybe. I think 35 would be generous, but I think it's more on the side of 20 minutes.

Reality TV World: I want to talk about what you guys called your biggest mistake. Why not give your cab driver the money he asked for? Was it just a matter of being stubborn, like you thought his request was absurd and you didn't want to give in, or, were you worried you might need that money later on in the leg and so you didn't want to blow most of it? 

Justin Scheman: I think it was both. I think, for me, it was two-fold. I think 1, is that it was like, "Come on dude, you're just trying to mess us up because we're on the island now." And 2, we had run out of money at least twice before that in a leg, and this leg was in New York -- the most expensive cabs in the world. So, I was kind of nervous about running out of money when we would need it most.

 And when we first got in the cab, I tried to negotiate to keep him for the whole leg, and that was the negotiation the whole time. And he wouldn't commit to it, and then when we got there, that's when he gave us a price. And it just seemed like I got caught up in the moment, I guess.

Diana Bishop: I think, too, they didn't show it, but I mean, Justin and I had cab issues I think every leg of the Race. In Brazil, we had run out of money and we got three free cab rides. In Argentina, some of the other Racers were paying less for their cabs. In Africa, one of our cab drivers wouldn't let us go because he wanted more money than we were given.

 I think towards the end, we just felt like we were being taken advantage of, and we took -- I think the other half of it is, we were so focused on the finish line that we forgot... it wasn't just A-Z and that's what we were thinking of.

 It was A to B, B to C, C to D. And I think when you're at the end, you just lose focus that there's more than one step, and we weren't thinking of the long-term. We were thinking of the short-term.

Reality TV World: Justin, did you feel having lived in New York for years ultimately proved to be an advantage for you guys or did it not make that much of a difference? And did cockiness affect you at all? You seemed worried, Diana, that Justin was going to become too confident over that.

Diana Bishop: I will answer that!

Reality TV World: Okay. (Laughs)

Diana Bishop: I don't think it was an advantage. I mean, there was nothing there that helped because Justin had lived there. I think, if anything, maybe it was our downfall. I think we were, I mean, to be more specific, I think Justin and I were just a little overconfident of where we were going to the final leg.

 But there was really no advantage as far as being a New Yorker. I mean, really, if anything, Justin should have known that being in Long Island, it was not the place to leave a cab.

 But I take as much blame for it as he does, because I didn't fight for it as well. I let the cab go just as much. I mean, we had gone through the scenario I think every day since we've been home, and you know, we have a bunch of "should've, would've could'ves." 

 Could we have convinced the other cab driver that said he was going home, you know, could we have tried to offer him more? Could we have pushed him more? It was just, I don't know.

Justin Scheman: I think that being a New Yorker didn't help much. If we had to do tasks where we had to get on subways and go places and that type of thing, I think it would definitely have been, like, an amazing advantage.

 But because it was pretty much just like any other city, where you go to a cab driver and a cab driver takes you anywhere you need to go, and the Belmont Stakes clue, I mean, that's one of the biggest horse races in the world and we just had a Triple Crown winner, so if you don't know where Belmont Stakes is now, you're never going to know it.

 It's not like being a New Yorker had any real advantage in that leg, except for the hometown curse, (laughs) where nobody wins in their hometown.

Reality TV World: I want to go back to the incident when Chris and Logan warned you Tiffany Chantell and Krista Debono had U-Turned you. You confronted the "Cheerleaders" about it, they whole-heartedly denied it, and then you determined you didn't like or trust Chris and Logan. What was your reaction when you learned Tiffany and Krista were actually the ones being dishonest? And would you have still U-Turned Chris and Logan had you known the truth? 

Justin Scheman: Hmm. (Laughs) I think that was the first chance -- the airport right before we went to India was the first chance that Diana and I had a chance to hangout with Krista and Tiffany and "Team Alabama" ["Mother and Son" Denise Williams and James Earl Corley].

 The other teams went through another connecting terminal -- another connecting country. So it was just the three of us and we really had a chance to bond. We really talked and we got to know each other.

 So we kind of trusted the "Cheerleaders" and "Team Alabama" at that point, and what they were telling us was that Chris was going around literally asking every single person -- not every single team -- every person individually their U-Turn plans and trying to influence them on the decision that they should make.

 Literally, it was to the point where they followed James Earl into the bathroom and [Chris] was talking to him on his way into the bathroom. He was just obsessed. So when he started at the train station, my eyes just instantly rolled. I'm like, "Here we go! It's our turn." And so, I didn't believe a word he said. (Laughs)

Reality TV World: In the penultimate leg, you guys got a fair time penalty at the Pit Stop for taking a different ferry than the one you were instructed. But then something that surprised me was producers tacked on an additional 25 minutes since the ride you took was shorter. I don't recall the Race adding minutes onto a time penalty for time gained -- like how a team might take a taxi instead of walking. As students of the game, how do you view that whole thing? Was it fair?

Diana Bishop: I do recall one other time when I think a team took a cab instead of walking and I believe they were penalized the time they gained from taking the cab. So, I mean, we were surprised but we weren't. It's to be expected.

 If you take a ferry that's 25 minutes closer, a half-hour penalty isn't exactly fair. I mean, 30 minutes for breaking [the rules] and not following them and then 25 minutes for our time gained. As much as I didn't like it, I think it was fair in the end.

Justin Scheman: Yeah. I think it was definitely fair. They've done it in the past. Not with, like, the same type of transportation. But usually when you take a different form of transportation than what was on the card, yeah, I don't think it was unfair.

 And even if we went home that leg, I wouldn't have blamed it on an unfair penalty. I would've been more mad that the taxi driver originally, when we got to the cab after our cell phone task, if he didn't know where he was going, he didn't just say, "I don't know."

 And we would just get out. Don't say, "Yeah, yeah, yeah," and then 15 minutes later say, "I don't know." (Laughs) So THAT would've been the thing I would've blamed it on. But if [Tiffany and Krista's] cab driver didn't get lost, we would've been gone too.

Diana Bishop: But I also go back to that time when the cab driver took us -- after we got the cell phone -- I mean, we jumped in a cab. It's hard for me to blame the cab driver, when in the end, it's always up to us and it's our call.

 I mean, we should have asked people around after we got the cell phone, we should have researched a little more and asked a couple more people, but I think we got caught up in getting a cell phone, jumping in a cab, and just taking off and that was it.

 I mean, sometimes it's easy to blame a cab, but in the end, every decision you make, whether it's trusting a cab driver, whether it's getting information from somebody, it's ultimately up to you.

The Amazing Race's runner-up team Justin Scheman and Diana Bishop talk (Part 2)

 

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 12/15/2015


The Amazing Race's "Engaged Couple and Amazing Race Super Fans" Justin Scheman and Diana Bishop finished Season 27 as the runner-up team during Friday night's finale broadcast on CBS.


 
 
Justin and Diana were defeated by the $1 million winners Kelsey Gerckens and Joey Buttitta, who are "Dating Co-Workers and News Anchors" that conquered five continents, 10 countries and more than 34,000 miles. 

"Dating Paparazzi Business Partners" Logan Fazio and Chris Gordon finished in third place. 
 

During an exclusive interview with Reality TV World on Monday, Justin and Diana talked about their The Amazing Race experience. Below is the concluding portion. Click here to read the first half. 

Reality TV World: I know you basically watched every episode of the Race three times and set up your own race to practice. Were you just trying to memorize everyone's mistakes so you wouldn't make them? And did you do anything else to prepare?

Justin Scheman: Yeah, there's a lot we did! Go ahead, babe.

Diana Bishop: Well, I mean, I'll let you speak in terms of your preparation, but Justin did make -- we made up these 10 hard commandments and it was the result of why people win and why people go home. We referred to those commandments vigorously throughout the game.

 You know, Justin would be doing something and I would be yelling, "Remember No. 3! Remember No. 3!" It helped us focus when we were doing tasks. And I think that it definitely played a part in being successful.

Justin Scheman: Yeah, and I think knowing the Race and the way the clues are worded and things like that really, really helped. But we did a lot of preparation and a lot of those things directly reflected on the Race. Part of our fake race was analyzing French love poems and we ended up doing a French rap.

 Part of the race was a fireman task and I went and trained with the Phoenix fire departments to learn rappelling and firefighter challenges, you know, things of that nature.

 And so, things that we genuinely prepared for, like, me and Diana took a rock climbing and rappelling class so she'd be comfortable in a harness. She wound up getting in three, four harnesses, so she was much more comfortable doing it that first time.

 So I think all of these little things just take the edge off, or add a minute or two here and there. They just add up, and I mean, we only beat Kelsey and Joey a lot of times by five, 10 minutes. And I think it was a result of all these minutes gained here or there and being prepared.

Reality TV World: I think it was Tanner Kloven and Josh Ahern who told me they thought you mapped out every airport you traveled to so you could run out quickly. I want to confirm whether or not that's true because the guys weren't even sure. (Laughs)

Justin Scheman: (Laughs)

Diana Bishop: No, that's not really true. We heard some really, really funny comments that Tanner and Josh said. At one point, Tanner said that "The Green Team" needed to be tested for performance-enhancing drugs. The other teams were just getting so frustrated that they couldn't come close to us.

 We did not map out every airport. I mean, before we left for the starting line, we were watching the news to watch for maps and to see if we could find, you know, how to get to the airport if we needed to when we were in Los Angeles. But that turned out not to be helpful.

Justin Scheman: We just tried to gain any advantage we could and we were always -- and I think at the airports, the reason we got out of the airports faster was we were just more comfortable navigating, following signs and making decisions quickly.

 If you're used to subway systems and you see the subway points down, you go. If you're not used to subway systems, you look at it more and you're like, "Wait, is that where we need to go?" You just hesitate more, and that was such a big advantage for us.

Reality TV World: You guys work incredibly well together but at times, your bickering was pretty brutal. Were moments tough to watch back? I mean, even Phil Keoghan sort of scolded you once Justin to be nicer to Diana. Does that dynamic actually help push you both during the Race or hinder your efficiency? 

Diana Bishop: Justin and I have been together for eight years, so we really know the ins and outs of our relationship and how we communicate best with each other, and also how we start breaking apart when we're not communicating properly.

 So, I definitely think being together for so long and having such a close relationship really helped us get in and out of the tasks together. We can almost read each other. As far as the not-so-pleasant moments, I'll let Justin talk about those.

Justin Scheman: Yeah, obviously I hate watching every second of it. Who wants to see the worst side of themselves? And not only the worst side of themselves, but the worst side of themselves reacting to the person they care about the most. You're giving the person who you love the worst side of you in front of everybody. I mean, there's nothing that hurts more than watching something like that.

 I think it's something that eventually pushed us forward. It's something that I know I need to work on and something that's going to be great for our relationship, because we can see the problems that we have and need to work on. But it definitely gave us this inner-drive, like, even if it was just to prove each other wrong at that point, it was a drive forward. It gave us this energy.

Diana Bishop: And I always say, Justin and I, we love each other, and people that meet us think we have just met because we're still that in-your-face PDA, mushy-gushy couple. But you know, part of what I love most about him is I love his New York attitude.

 I love that I feel safe with him, that he can stand up for me if he needs to and he can protect me if he needs to. But also, I think that New York side of him is sometimes what, you know, frustrates me most, that he has this need to be right and he forgets who he's talking to.

Reality TV World: Do you have any marriage plans and how might you fit all of your prize winnings into that timeline? And you mentioned a babymoon at the end of the finale episode. Do you want kids right away?

Justin Scheman: I'm going to shoot for getting married by the end of next year, 2016. And I was thinking about it, if the opportunity arrives to do all-stars, it would probably be Season 30, which would probably be kicking off right now or even next year, so I wouldn't want to interfere with that. (Laughs) No, I'm just joking. I think the end of next year, regardless, we're getting married. There's nothing stopping us from getting married.

Diana Bishop: Even if we have to pick up and elope, we will be married by the end of next year.

Justin Scheman: Diana was like, "What are you talking about?! We're going to get married! I don't care!" (Laughs)

Reality TV World: I think it's safe to say you'd be shoo-ins for an all-stars season. What would you do differently if there was a next time or how might you prepare? I know you did so much to prepare for this past season, but...

Diana Bishop: Well, you know, going back to our 10 commandments, Justin and I would, I guess, revise some of those and keep the ones that worked. But I think we'd have to make 10 amendments to our commandments and one of those amendments would certainly be never letting go of a cab. For us, that's like Amazing Race 101 as well, like, don't let go of your cab.

Justin Scheman: And follow your gut. There were, like, three times on the Race when we truly didn't follow our gut. There was something that said, "Listen," and we didn't listen. And I think that's really important, like, your first instinct usually is the right one.

 Don't be in a rush, but follow your gut. And all-stars, yeah, I am going to stalk the producers and keep feeding them, have my fans feeding them, like, we want redemption! Season 30 Unfinished Business 2, please, let's do this!

#TheGreenTeam Reflect On Their Adventures During The Amazing Race

After traveling the globe, Justin and Diana (#TheGreenTeam) came up a few steps short on the season finale of The Amazing Race, and host Phil Keoghan had to give them the disappointing news that they came in second place.

While the engaged couple didn't take winning title, their bright outlook and love for the game couldn't be stopped.

Read what this couple had to say about their experience on The Amazing Race.


1. If invited back for All Stars would you return and have you learned anything about the Race and yourselves from watching the episode?​
Diana:
"Is this the invitation?! Of course, Justin and I would return for an All Stars Season, and now, we feel like we have even more to prove. I learned how strong I really am and how I shouldn't doubt myself or my abilities for anything. There were so many challenges that people would tell me they could never do, [like] dance the tango on a wall, bungee jump, [or] walk with lions.
I wouldn't have thought I could do them either, but you gain this inner strength in yourself and you realize that really can do anything! I also think that despite the disagreements Justin and I have, our love for each other is stronger than anything else. We fight with passion and we love with passion, and to us, that is the most important."
Justin: "Of course! I would run the Race once a year if they would let me! I learned a lot about myself and Diana. I know Diana is much stronger than she thinks she is. I know she is the perfect balance for me in life and I know she's going to be an amazing mother. What I learned about myself is that I need to be more aware of how others perceive me and take a deep breath before I react to things. Diana and I are teammates for life. We both want the same things, so arguing is pointless when we have the same goals. She's so smart. I know I need to listen more."

2. Was competing on the Race all you dreamed it would be?
Diana:
"Competing on Race was so much more than you dream about. You envision the famous landmarks and countries, but it's the people and cultures that stick with you when you're back home."
Justin: "It's so cliché to say it was everything and more, but it really was. Traveling is more than just seen landmarks and monuments—you should want to experience the culture and understand how other people live. It makes you really appreciate how lucky and fortunate we are to have been born in America."

3. What was your favorite moment from the Race?
Diana:
"My favorite moment was our first win in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We overcame so many obstacles that first leg in Brazil, so to go from ninth place to first was exhilarating! Running to that mat and seeing Phil standing, waiting for us there was so emotional! My expectation for the Race was to not get eliminated. Justin's expectation was to win every leg. Winning that first leg was an eye opener that anything is possible!"
Justin: "There are so many great moments for me. One of my favorites was watching Diana bungee jump in Africa. She was so scared but so determined, and when she finished you could see how excited and proud she was to have overcome her fears."

4. What challenge in the Race did you find to be the most difficult?
Diana:
"The biggest challenge for me was fitting in, socially. Going in, I did not want to seem threatening or [like] a 'know-it-all.' I wanted to make some friends, travel the world, and win $1 million. Justin wanted everyone to know how prepared we were and that began to separate us from the beginning. He didn't do it on purpose, but it ended up being a big reason we had such a target on our backs from the start. I think it's hard to be successful and still be social because you feel like you are taking something away from the other racers when you win. And then, when you keep winning, it just get worse."
Justin: "For me, it was the barbecue task in Argentina. Diana is so much better with the little detail tasks as I seem to paint with a much broader brush. I was so focused on getting the metal ties correct that I didn't see the simple things, like flipping the ribs around, and it still kills me that we lost that leg by 15 seconds!"

5. How does it feel to know now that the other teams were conspiring against you since the beginning of the Race?​
Diana:
"In the beginning, we knew #TeamTexas was after us, but we had no idea that all the teams were in it for the Express Pass! That was something we didn't learn until after the Race was already over. It was a good feeling to know that despite having such a large target on our backs, Justin and I were able to overcome all of that and still come out on top for so many of the legs.
Just being on the Race was a dream come true, but being on the Race and winning seven out of 12 legs is what we will remember most."
Justin: "It's pretty interesting. As a fan, it's fun to watch, but as a contestant, it's tough knowing that since day one it was everybody versus #TheGreenTeam. I think it also makes what we accomplished so much more meaningful because one mistake on any of the U-Turn legs and we could've been out of this race."

6. Is Justin just as emotional in his real life as he was on the Race?
Diana:
"Yes, he is! Justin is emotional and never hides how he is feeling. He always lets you know where you stand and makes no apologies about it. Justin wears his heart on his sleeve and professes his love for me every waking moment! (He is definitely more loving that I am!)"
Justin: "Yes and no. I am a very passionate person and have learned I need to release my emotions because I used to keep them bottled up. But there are only a few things that can trigger those emotions and the Race just happens to have most of them. Anyone who really knows me has definitely seen that side of me. It's just a part of who I am."

7. What was the most important thing you learned about yourself and your teammate?
Diana:
"The most important thing I learned about myself is how strong I really am. After everything I've done on the Race, I know I am capable of doing anything! From now on, I will believe in myself a lot more. The most important thing I learned about Justin is how dedicated he really is. He is dedicated to me, his goals, his dreams, and that he will go to the ends of the earth for them."
Justin: "I learned that if we work together, there really is nothing we can't achieve. Diana is the strongest woman I know and I need to learn to talk to her better."

8. What was the most physically and mentally challenging aspect(s) of the Race?
Diana:
"The most physically challenging aspect of the Race is staying in tip-top shape for every leg. After five or six legs, your body starts to weaken and ache everywhere! There is no stretching or massaging that could relieve some of the aches and pains that the Race causes your body to feel. After [the seventh leg] in Rotterdam, we got massages and I am not going to lie: it rejuvenated us and pushed us through to those final legs of the Race.
The most mentally challenging aspect of the Race is believing in yourself! It may seem easy, but there are things that I thought I could never do. I am terrified of heights, but I got to ride over Victoria Falls in a micro-light and bungee jump over the Zambezi River, two things that I would have never volunteered to do! I was able to overcome some of my fears and nothing is more empowering than that."
Justin: "For me it was dealing with the effects of your body [when it's] full of adrenaline most of the day, [then] tired, hungry, excited, [and] nervous all at the same time. It's not something you can really prepare for. Mentally, [it] would be trying to build relationships with people who just wanted you gone. Also, pinpointing the mistakes we made and second guessing [or] reliving them."

Because there is no poverty in the US and it never gets involved in wars?  Don't get me wrong, I'm one of the very few people here who actually likes the green team (I know, I know, very unpopular opinion), but as a non-American from a country visited this season, that comment didn't strike me the right way. Not because there are international editions of the race, obviously, but because in every country you'll find people with good lives and some people living some not so great lives, maybe in different scales, but just being born in the US doesn't automatically makes your life better than anyone else's.

But anyway, I was not super offended by that comment or anything, I frowned a bit when I read it, then I kept reading and by the time the interview was over I wasn't even thinking about it anymore, I'm just explaining why IMO it can be seen as disrespectful.

I know a lot of you are haters  :funny:.

But Justin & Diana are running a YouTube channel named Classic One, I'm sure many of you have seen it. They do Amazing Race Recaps they'll also cover TarCanada. They do so many co abs with racers tomorrow they're doing one with Brooke & Clair! He's with James Earl every week and Tiffany often pops up. So even if you didn't like them check it out because it's really good.  :conf:

Long bus to SL?
Rappell SLT without even mentioning TAR21?
CANADA Leg 1?
Cow Wrangling vs. Barrell Racing DT?
