3 words to describe you: Unpredictable, joyful and eccentric.
Favorite hobbies: Traveling, singing, cooking, public speaking and Instagram (duh).
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Being able to help build Clevver into one of the most viewed entertainment channels online! Being the first Lumbee Indian on The Amazing Race! And marrying THE MOST amazing man on the planet.
What scares you most about traveling? Getting an incurable disease and also falling in love with a place that I will never want to leave! I am looking at you Ireland.
What excites you most about traveling? Trying delicious new foods AND meeting our fans from all over the world who watch our shows!
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Our size. We're tough girls but we're worried about being able to beat guys who are taller and stronger!
Pet peeve about your teammate: There are very few peeves, but she does drool a lot and she is THE MOST OVERLY POSITIVE PERSON EVER. But I also love that about her too.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Africa. I want to visit an elephant rescue and hug and kiss elephants! And I would definitely cry... TEARS OF JOY... if that happened.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Making memories with Joslyn that we can tell our kids about. Also, I want to push myself out of my comfort zone. I was raised as a pioneering country girl, and I need to get back to my roots!
 
 
 
 
Name: Joslyn Davis
 Age: 33
 Twitter: @JoslynDavis
 Instagram: JoslynDavis
 YouTube: www.youtube.com/ClevverNews, www.youtube.com/ClevverStyle, www.youtube.com/ClevverTV and www.youtube.com/MissJoslynDavis
 Snapchat: joslyndavis www.joslyndavis.com
How many total followers do you have across all platforms? Clevver has nearly 8 million across all platforms, while I personally have approximately 100,000. This includes all YouTube and social media.
Hometown: Downey, Calif.
Connection to your teammate: BFFLs and co-workers
Current occupation: Executive Producer/Host/Influencer
Describe what you do: I executive produce and host (and oftentimes write) daily entertainment news and lifestyle/beauty content at Clevver, the number one entertainment news outlet on YouTube. We pull in approximately 150 million views every month!
3 words to describe you: Compassionate, optimistic and gregarious. (And weird - that's a bonus)
Favorite hobbies: Travel (duh), going to concerts and anything adventurous and outdoors.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Professionally, the accomplishment I'm most proud of is being at Clevver since day one, helping to build the company and the brand and taking our channels from zero to 3 plus billion views! Personally, I'm most proud of the fact that I'm responsible for naming a color for Crayola - it's called "Tickle Me Pink." I was 12. True story! HAHA! I think I need to accomplish something else...
What scares you most about traveling? This is not a cop-out but there's really nothing that scares me about traveling. Sometimes what seems like the biggest set-back on a trip becomes the best adventure!
What excites you most about traveling? In my career, I get paid to talk to and observe people, and that really what I'm passionate about. That said, it's not too surprising that when I'm traveling to a new place, I'm usually most excited by the local people - what they love, what they eat, how they interact, ALL of it!
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: There's NO challenge we're afraid of (we're not absolutely NOT timid), but if I had to pick I'd say the biggest challenges we'll probably face will be physical. Don't get me wrong, we're in tip-top shape, but we know we don't have the same strength as some of the guy-guy teams.
Pet peeve about your teammate: I love Erin, but the girl cries ALL THE TIME - when she's happy, when she's sad, when it's sunny, when something funny happens. I guess it's a pet peeve, but I also love that about her!
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would LOVE to go anywhere in South America or Africa. As far as specific countries and cities go, I'm very open! Is going everywhere an option?
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope to have the time of my life on the Race and enjoy every single second! I realize this is an experience of a lifetime and I'm so grateful to be on the Race. But this is a RACE, so I also hope to kick some serious a$$ and hold it down for all the girls out there watching!

I recognise them from almost every single time I watch a celeb news vid from Clevver on YouTube :lol:

I like them enough but their video has them a little bit fake? Hopefully that's just them being really excited to race and they do decently while being fun to watch!

When looking back at their accomplishments, what are Erin and Joslyn most proud of?

Erin’s most proud to represent her culture as the first Lumbee Indian to ever compete on The Amazing Race, while Joslyn is gratified to receive credit for naming a Crayola crayon color when she was only 12 years old. (Her proposed shade is "Tickle Me Pink," in case you'd like to check your coloring boxes.)

Amazing Race's Joslyn Davis and Erin Robinson Blog About 'Full-Blown Sprint to Mexico City' in Premiere



Social media influencers Joslyn Davis and Erin Robinson are competing in season 28 of The Amazing Race and blogging about all the action – and what happened when the cameras weren't rolling – exclusively for PEOPLE. Follow the Clevver hosts on Twitter at @JoslynDavis and @HeyErinRobinson!

Joslyn's Take:
HOLY OMG Erin and I are really on The Amazing Race. This is really happening. What is my life? Those were my initial thoughts after watching episode one of The Amazing Race season 28. I'll happily admit that I'm openly biased because I think this cast is exceptional in every way possible, but putting all of that aside, as someone who's also watched almost every single season of the race, I think this first episode is easily the most laugh-out-loud funny episode I've ever seen!

Right out of the gate, this season is breaking new ground because it's packed with so many "firsts" that hardcore fans of the show are going to be blown away by. The first time the entire cast started racing from their homes all throughout the country. The first time any portion of the show has been live. And, most importantly, the first time EVER in TV history, a show has featured a fully digital influencer cast – cast that is packed with people who also happen to be diehard fans of The Amazing Race!

From the moment we got the clue from Phil Keoghan at Erin's house, it was a full-blown sprint to Mexico City's Monumento a la Revolución. People were falling, bodies were flying, and I'm pretty sure that within the first five seconds I hit Erin in the face; pretty basic race stuff. It was total and complete mayhem at that first clue box as we chose our first Detour. Selecting the Mariachi option was pretty much a no-brainer because it sounded so cool. And guess what? It was. After running two miles through Mexico City, we arrived in Plaza Giribaldi to what was truly an out-of-body experience you could only have on the Amazing Race.

When else is a person engulfed in a circle formation of 300 playing mariachis? Never. Erin and I were so up in these beautiful people's personal space, I swear I think I made out with one of them! #NoRegrets

After quickly finding our mariachi we hopped in a cab to head out to the pyramids where we realized we were at the top of the pack in 3rd place! In that first leg you're really just trying to figure out what the heck is going on, how the race works, and asking yourself (if you're me) why you packed so much and quickly you can throw stuff away. After slumberpartyingitup outside on a patio with the all the racers, we got up at the crack of dawn for the infamous cave challenge! It was so wild to finally see what went down in those caves because I couldn't see Erin's road block. I was just up on flat land having a personal dance party with myself. I'm so proud of her and the fact that she never gave up! And also, I cannot believe we survived the most sketchy cab ride of all time trying to get the pit stop.That cab ride almost cost us the whole race. The driver literally pulled over the freeway. WHO DOES THAT? Regardless, running to that mat, seeing Phil and having him tell us we were still in it was the best moment ever and I can't wait to see the next episode!

Erin's Take:
Nothing in the world could have prepared us for leg one on season 28 of The Amazing Race. Trust me.

Joslyn and I jumped off of bridges in costumes, took tight rope walking classes, and learned how to shoot a bow and arrow better than Katniss in the HANGRY Games, and it still wasn't enough. As soon as we arrived in Mexico, our preparation went out the window and adrenaline took over!

Joslyn and I jumped into the first cab that we could find. "¡Rapido!" is the only word I know in Spanish, and I must have nailed it (along with Joslyn speaking fluent Spanish) because we went from zero to 90 MPH in matter of seconds. Our cab driver revealed to us that he too was in a race, competing with all of the other racers' cabs to get us to the Monumento a la Revolución first. By the end, our word of choice was "¡Cuidado!" We were third to the clue box, and all I could think about was how this was crazier than all of the 5 a.m. Black Friday sales I've ever been to, combined...and I got punched over a television once.

oslyn and I chose the Mariachi Madness Detour. Luckily, some helpful Clevver fans gave us directions along the way. Little did we know, we were signing up for a two-and-a-half mile sprint! After sitting on a plane for hours, my legs did not want to cooperate! Thankfully, though, this detour made every HEAVY step worth it. There was something truly magical about 300 mariachi men and women giving you the live performance of a lifetime at 1 a.m., but we should have rethought the 25-lbs. backpacks.

Day 2, 7:30 a.m.: After a freezing, FORTY FIVE minute "sleep" we're back to the race! I volunteered as tribute to "pick up the pieces" and, before I knew it, I was going underground into dark caves where we had to dig for puzzle pieces. I'm claustrophobic. I'm terrified. I'm sweating. And I may or may not have comforted myself with the idea that maybe I'd find Batman in there. Things took a turn for the worst. I was missing a puzzle piece to my white mask and other racers told me that the blue mask wouldn't get approved.

Lesson 1 learned: Don't listen to other racers. After searching for my missing white piece for entirely too long, Sheri [LaBrant] and I gave it one last shot, and I decided to try the blue set. And hallelujah it was freaking approved!

I'm convinced our cab driver to the pit stop was loco. At one point on the freeway he actually pulled over off the side of the road to let cars PASS him. Joslyn and I knew that this could put us behind other teams that we had passed, and it did. Sheri and Cole [LaBrant] actually beat us there! Thank God we didn't take that penalty!

Leg one is the hardest leg to get through. You really need it to emotionally and physically get your bearings in this strange "Amazing Race" bubble you exist in. Luckily for Joslyn and I, we experienced both highs and lows in episode one and I conquered one of my biggest fears, which means we're warmed up and more than ready to take on our next challenge! Batman would be proud!

How come there is no love for this team in here! I honestly can't recall the last time we had such a high energy team, slightly crazy team.

Someone better make some gifs of Erin bitching about the broken speedometer. Too funny :lol3:

I am deathly afraid of three things in life: tight spaces, bellybuttons and fish.

I don't remember seeing any belly button scene from Leg 2, but it seems like the race has triggered all 3 of these fears.

THE AMAZING RACECLOSE ENCOUNTERS | Here we go again with the caves! Except this time, the claustrophobia meltdown is on a whole new level. I’ve watched countless seasons of The Amazing Race, but I didn’t fully appreciate the producers’ love for caves until I found myself racing through them during our season. The meltdown began after Joslyn and I sprinted up the side of a giant castle on a hill and right into the dark catacomb cave. Our hearts were racing. We were drenched in sweat. And we could barely catch our breath in the fresh air, much less inside of a moldy, stuffy catacomb. Suddenly, just as my heart was about to jump out of my chest, the floor took a sharp slope downward, declining seemingly into the very depths of hell, and the walls around me rapidly began to shrink smaller and smaller. As the kids say these days, “All chill was lost” and that cave “R.I.P.’d me”! With the adrenaline pumping through my veins and claustrophobia sinking in, I just remember feeling like I was inching closer and closer to death with every step I took. I know it sounds ridiculous, but to someone who hasn’t experienced a personal terror like this, there’s no way you could understand how it feels to come up against such a fear and also have to keep racing despite it all.

THE AMAZING RACELIVING THAT BUS DRAMA DREAM LIFE | I was born and raised — and learned to drive — right outside of L.A. I literally spend four hours a day stuck in my car fighting that L.A. traffic grind, but honestly, who knew Cartagena’s traffic would be so out of control? Definitely not me. After deciding to do the Bus Detour, Erin and I and our bus driver headed out into the suburbs of Cartagena — dancing and yelling out to people to hop on our bus, collecting money really quickly, and generally having way too sweaty much fun. That is, until we realized we’d driven about 30 minutes out from the city center and would need to fight crazy traffic to get back to the bus stop. Thankfully, we were very carefully keeping track of how much money we were taking in throughout the detour because our nightmare scenario would have been having to go back out on the bus to try and collect more. Addition, subtraction, division… basically anything related to numbers is not my thing, but Erin and I ended up collecting more than enough money. Thank God. That said, we still lost so much time on this detour and our anxiety levels catapulted to an all-time high. But I’m still so glad we did it because we met so many awesome people and definitely got to see a completely different part of the city.

 

THE AMAZING RACEBUTT SWEAT AND TEARS | I woke up in Cartagena with dozens of zits all over my face. Maybe it was because I washed it with generic hotel soap? Or maybe it was because I literally hadn’t had the energy to take off my eye makeup for three days? (True story.) Well, I come to find out that they were not zits at all — they were mini heat rash soldiers fighting a civil war on my face! As much as I pretended to care at first, I didn’t really. I actually felt proud to sport my Amazing Race face rash with honor. However, that wasn’t the last time the humid heat reared its ugly head. During our Bus Detour, Joslyn and I were trying to make our bus passengers comfortable. After all, we were trying to raise enough money to get through that (very slow) challenge as quickly as possible. I kept finding wet spots on the bus seats, and before I would seat a passenger I would wipe off the moisture with my hands and arms. I kept thinking, “Maybe they just washed the bus before we jumped on?” Or, “Perhaps people keep spilling their water bottles?” I found out later that all the “water” I wiped off during the two-hour journey was actually the butt sweat of other passengers! I WAS COVERED IN SOMEONE’S BUTT SWEAT ALL DAY!

THE AMAZING RACEDEODO-RANT! | Cartagena is a Caribbean City, which means it’s a beach town with beautiful people, amazing food/culture and gorgeous beaches. But it also means it is next-level hot, humid, sweaty and sticky. Thank goodness people watching Amazing Race don’t have Smell-o-Vision, because there is no level of antiperspirant that could have saved us during this leg. We were straight-up disgusting. And, I kind of loved it — sweat equals street cred in my book. I don’t think I’ve ever sweat as much as we did in Cartagena. I looked like a swarthy NFL player (OK, slight exaggeration but whatever). Being in the back of some of those cabs was like being on a flying slip-n-slide, with our backpacks so drenched they were more or less stuck to our skin. It was also crazy to see how much the weather affects how teams race – running uphill at a full-blown sprint gets a lot harder in insane heat and humidity.


THE AMAZING RACEMOCHILA MANIA | This felt like one of the longest days we had on the Race so far, but I had no idea that it was just the beginning until I hesitantly decided to volunteer for the Road Block. This day was very physically demanding for us. While we were on the race, Joslyn and I played a dehydration game with our bodies. Generally, we would stop drinking water two hours before our start time so that we wouldn’t have to stop for bathroom breaks. This particular leg in Colombia was grueling because by the time we got to our Road Block, I hadn’t had water for probably six or seven hours, and my Road Block had me sprinting approximately nine miles in a very short amount of time. Another big challenge I faced was that I needed to get directions from locals who only spoke Spanish. This definitely should have been Joslyn’s Road Block, since she speaks Spanish fluently! Hindsight is definitely 20/20 on the Race. Thankfully, I found an English-speaking tourist who gave me her map, but after about Mile 5, that thing started disintegrating in my hand from my sweat. Also, coming into the Race I injured my hip while training, so I began to feel Amy DeJong’s pain from Season 25 as I tried to sprint on a hip that felt like it was going to snap right off.

FROM CBS.COM:
http://www.cbs.com/shows/amazing_race/photos/1006023/erin-and-joslyn-reflect-on-their-adventures-during-the-amazing-race/



Erin and Joslyn were the fourth team eliminated on Season 28 of The Amazing Race.

After traveling the world together, best friends and YouTube personalities Erin and Joslyn came up short during the latest episode of The Amazing Race, which meant host Phil Keoghan had to give them the disappointing news that their adventure was over.

While the Clevver hosts didn't proceed to the next leg of the journey, they each walked away from the mat grateful for all the experience had given them.

Read what Erin and Joslyn had to say following their exciting experience on The Amazing Race and their advice for viewers who have the travel bug in them, too.


1. Do you think if you hadn't spent so much time searching for "lunch," you would've avoided elimination?
Erin:
"The edit made it seem like we spent a lot of time looking for lunch, but, in actuality, it was only a couple of minutes. Honestly, the thing that affected our elimination most was my position the mountain. By the time Ashley, Sheri, and I were all lined up, the wind had significantly changed direction.
My position was not getting the right kind of wind gusts that we needed. In fact, we waited there for about 30 minutes with no wind until my pilot decided to move us down the mountain to Ashley's position and that's when we finally took off."
Joslyn: "The way our lunch search played out still has me cracking up for a few reasons. Yes, we were slightly confused about it, but it was not nearly that epic! Granted, we did search for about five minutes for the lunch, but a handful of other teams still were on the mountain also seemed confused by this.

2. Erin, how did you manage to get through your fears—like claustrophobia and fish—this season?
Erin:
"Honestly, it was having a partner who wouldn't let me dwell on them. Joslyn is such a 'mind over matter' kind of woman and it certainly helped to have her talk me through some of that. Also, I knew that so many of our fans would be watching and would be looking to see how I handle adversity.
We all have challenges we face in life, but I wanted to show them that if you make the decision to accomplish something despite your fear, you really can overcome it."
Moreover, let's get serious—a baguette does not constitute lunch! That is not a balanced meal. So, I partially think this was meant to add some comedy and confusion to our day."

3. What was your best memory from the Race?
Erin:
"There are two! Being a producer, I've always looked up to the [production] team that put The Amazing Race together. Seeing how the show's creators, Bertram [van Munster] and Elise [Doganieri], are so involved with making this show #amazing is one of the most inspirational experiences I had on the Race.
Especially Elise, who is such an example of female empowerment! They were so involved and there with us during every leg. They're the ultimate power couple. Then, of course, you have the leg in Chamonix, France, where we literally were traversing snow covered mountains. It doesn't get more exciting than that!"
Joslyn: "One of my favorite memories from the Race was when we were all on the mat together in Chamonix. We had all had the craziest, most stressful yet fun day, and it was such a treat to be on the mat with all the other teams, which we later learned has only happened one other time in The Amazing Race history—and that was during an all-star season.
What you didn't really see was that we all enjoyed a five-minute long dance party together as a group on the mat with some musical stylings from the local musicians at the Pit Stop. It was ridiculous and we were all delirious, but it was so fun."

4. What lessons did you learn from your experience?
Erin:
"I learned that I pack way too much stuff. I love to be prepared for anything while traveling, but if we were to do the Race again, we would literally pack 25-percent of what we brought this time. Running with 25 pounds strapped to your back is not conducive to winning a race."
Joslyn: "I learned so many lessons, both practical travel lessons and bigger-picture life lessons. I've basically perfected the ability to book an airline ticket and get the best seat possible, while also becoming best friends with the ticket agent. (They are always the best!)
More importantly, though, this experience just reinstated my belief in the idea that life is short and if there are adventures you want to have, people you want to meet, and things you want to do—even scary things—you just have to make them happen. And you really have to harness every awesome opportunity that comes your way."

5. What was your favorite challenge and favorite place you visited this season?
Erin:
"Chamonix, France. I've only been outside of the U.S. one time in my life and Chamonix is one of those places I've always heard about but only dreamt about going to. We were literally transported into the most unreal Christmas card I've ever seen.
The last time I went skiing, I took out an entire school of children who were on a field trip. But it was worth the risk of possibly injuring myself (or others) in some crazy snow challenge to be there and see that place in person."
Joslyn: "Without a doubt, Chamonix was my favorite leg of the Race overall. Beyond the incredible adrenaline challenges we got to take on, the scenery was absolutely crazy-amazing and since it was early in the ski season, our Race cast and crew were pretty much the only people in the whole town.
I fully expected Santa and Mrs. Claus to pop out at any given moment. It was that breathtaking and surreal. Beyond that, the Mariachi Detour in Mexico City and the Mud Volcano Roadblock were incredible, sort of outer-body experiences and definitely things you could only experience on The Amazing Race."

6. Would you ever be on The Amazing RAce again, if given the opportunity?
Erin:
"Yes, yes, and yes."
Joslyn: "Yes, yes, yes! May I leave now? My bag is packed. Seriously, I'm not kidding."
"When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains--however improbable--must be the truth." --Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Exclusive: 'The Amazing Race's Erin White Robinson and Joslyn Davis talk (Part 1)

The Amazing Race eliminated "Best Friends" Erin White Robinson and Joslyn Davis during Friday night's broadcast of the CBS reality competition's 28th season.

The YouTube hosts became the fourth team eliminated from the around-the-world competition after they arrived at the Race's fifth Pit Stop at the Dr. Paccard Statue in Chamonix, France, in last place.

Erin and Joslyn seemed to come across a little bit of bad luck while attempting to complete the paragliding Roadblock task.

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


Reality TV World: We didn't see about half of the teams' departure times at the start of this leg. What was your position taking off? You left in sixth place right?

Joslyn Davis: Yes, we did. We left in sixth place and sometimes we're so just right on top of each other -- I'm imagining that's probably why they didn't show it -- because we all arrived at the mat literally 20 seconds behind each other. So, Erin, wasn't it, I think, 45 seconds that we left behind the team in front of us?

Erin White Robinson: Yeah, it was something close to that.

Joslyn Davis: Mhmm.

Reality TV World: It seemed like a time you really struggled in the leg was when you were looking for the lunches to bring with you at the Detour before you realized the baguettes you had in your bags the whole time were what you needed. How long did you waste searching?

Erin White Robinson:
Actually, we wasted a lot of time because we made a couple of errors when we were about to board the gondola. We forgot our tour guide. I know it showed that [Sheri LaBrant] forgot her tour guide, well, we forgot our tour guide as well. S[ o ], we lost some time towards the front end of that challenge, but we really only spent a couple of minutes looking for lunch.

It looked like, you know, they played it up like it was a really big deal, and that we wasted a lot of time, but in actuality, we only spent a couple of minutes. So, the lunch really didn't play very much into what happened during this leg at all.

Reality TV World: After watching Friday night's episode, are you glad you did the "Dynamite" Detour or do you think you would've fared better with "Campsite?"

Joslyn Davis:
Oh my goodness! I am so glad that we did not do that "Campsite" Detour. What wasn't shown in the episode -- which will maybe be released in a later clip -- is that [Burnie Burns and Ashley Jenkins], they build and pop tents in their backyard all the time for their boys, so they felt really confident about it.

But what you didn't see was that it wasn't really snow; It was more like hard compact ice, and we were at such a high altitude, that the physicality of doing that would've been really challenging. And they lost a ton of time.

Plus, the "Dynamite" Detour was just so much cooler and more fun! It had more adrenaline. I mean, when else are you going to get to have an experience like that in your life?! It was awesome; I loved it.

Reality TV World: Erin, the show featured you finally paragliding on your third attempt. Was that accurate? And was the issue at first that you weren't running quickly enough or the winds weren't strong enough when it was your turn to go?

Erin White Robinson: Yeah, I fell twice, and then on the third attempt, I took off. In actuality, our position on that mountain -- as you can see in that one shot -- I'm kind of at one end and Ashley is at the other end. We just really couldn't get a strong wind. One of the times it was due to me falling. The second time was due to no wind. We couldn't pick up enough wind.

So what ended up happening, interestingly enough, is after the second time I fell, I was so frustrated with my pilot, I was like, "We have to do something. I have to get off this mountain." And he moved me down to Ashley's position, and that's when I was able to take off, when I moved down to her position on the mountain.

Reality TV World: That's kind of unfortunate. (Laughs)

Erin White Robinson:
It really was! And the other thing too that people didn't see is, I was asking my tour guide if I could carve out a path in the snow. Because the snow was so thick and the terrain underneath was really kind of -- like, the mountain is not a smooth surface.

So he was telling me that I couldn't carve out a path in the snow to run. And Ashley got her guide to let her go down several feet to try to carve out the path for her. So, it really depended on positioning, on wind, on if you could clear a path or not, and of course leg strength and stuff like that too, but as you could see, smaller people took off pretty easily.

Big people took off pretty easily. So, most of it just had to do with the elements and where you were and what you were given as far as the landscape of the mountain.

Reality TV World: I was a little confused because, Erin, it looked like you got to the Roadblock task before Sheri and Ashley, but Sheri got to try paragliding before your first stab at it. What exactly happened there?

Erin White Robinson:
That was because her guide felt the wind coming and decided they were going to go for it! And my guide was kind of a conservative pilot. He didn't want to be aggressive and take off in any wind.

There was a clip of me going, "Why is she taking off?" And he said, "Look, she had back wind," which is why she ended up falling. So he was very knowledgeable but very conservative, which I think is one of the reasons that hurt us.

Reality TV World: Do you think it's a little unfair they didn't make you attempt to take off for the first time in the order of when you arrived at the Roadblock spot?

Erin White Robinson:
Yeah. And I said that as I was climbing back up the mountain. It was after the first time I fell. I said, "Why is she going? This isn't fair!" But I think that's what the show wanted, you know?

Because honestly, the rest of this leg was pretty linear. There wasn't a lot of opportunity for teams to get in front of each other. And I think this challenge was the challenge that would keep audiences on the edge of their seat wondering what was going to happen.

So, I think for the drama of the show, I think it worked out really well. If I was a producer on The Amazing Race, I would be very happy with not doing it in order because it makes people question and wonder what's going to happen next.

As a Racer, it's not fair and it's very frustrating, but I was just like, "You know what? If I'm supposed to get off this mountain, if there's a purpose, then I will." And I just had to, like, leave it up to God to figure it out as much as I could to figure out the details.

Reality TV World: Joslyn, what was going through your mind when you saw Sheri and then Ashley land? Were you concerned about Erin's well-being at that point, or more so just frustration and maybe disappointment?

Oh my gosh, no! It was so interesting because since I was waiting at the bottom of the mountain with so many other teams -- pretty much all the teams, at least 50 percent of them were there at the same time -- I was able to ask the teams that were ahead of me, like [Zach King] as well as [Scott Fowler], you know, "What's going on?! How is this working?"

And they were telling me that the teams were coming in in different orders than they had arrived and they were just guessing that it was because they were taking off in a different order and having trouble.

So as people started to land and I was standing there, I sort of had an idea that if the wind wasn't blowing in your favor, you were not going to be able to take off. That said, we were, I think, in front of three teams when we got to the mountain.

So as people started landing -- who had gotten there way after us -- as they were coming down, I started getting really concerned. And when the final team came down, I think it was Burnie and Ashley who came down, and I knew that Erin was the only person up there, I actually got really worried.

It ended up being probably like 30 minutes before she could take off, so all of production had left. It was literally just me and one camera operator, that's it, standing at the bottom of the mountain. I had someone Walkie-Talkie up to the top just to find out, like, if she was hurt, if something had happened.

And they were able to confirm that it was literally just the wind. There was no wind blowing, and so, they weren't going to be able to take off until it picked up. So, I mean, I was just glad that she was okay. I could imagine how frustrating it must have been.

But when the elements are in your favor, there's absolutely nothing you can do to change that. And I also knew that some of them were athletic teams, like [Kurt Gibson and Brodie Smith]. You know, Brodie even had a lot of trouble getting off the mountain.

So, if he's having trouble physically, then I imagine a lot of people would. At the end of the day though, I think there's nothing we could have done differently. I'm just so proud of the way we ran the Race.

Check back with Reality TV World soon for the concluding portion of Erin and Joslyn's exclusive The Amazing Race interview.

Exclusive: 'The Amazing Race's Erin White Robinson and Joslyn Davis talk (Part 2)

The Amazing Race eliminated "Best Friends" Erin White Robinson and Joslyn Davis during the most recent broadcast of the CBS reality competition's 28th season.

The YouTube hosts became the fourth team eliminated from the around-the-world competition after they arrived at the Race's fifth Pit Stop at the Dr. Paccard Statue in Chamonix, France, in last place.

Erin and Joslyn seemed to come across a little bit of bad luck while attempting to complete the paragliding Roadblock task.

In a recent exclusive interview with Reality TV World, Erin and Joslyn talked about their The Amazing Race experience. Below is the concluding portion. Click here to read the first half.


Reality TV World: What was your favorite leg?

Joslyn Davis: I'm so glad we got to do the Chamonix leg, because in my opinion and a lot of people's opinions, I think it's one of the coolest legs you'll see this season.

Reality TV World: Did you girls find yourselves forming an alliance with any of the teams? Also, who did you view as the most threatening team, probably the one you'd most likely U-Turn down the road if given the chance?

Joslyn Davis: I wouldn't say we formed any formal alliances with anyone on the Race. I have known Blair Fowler for about five years now, so I already had a pre-existing friendship with her, so that kind of does play into it. We spent a lot of time with them as well based on where we were in the pack.

We spent a lot of time with [Cole LaBrant and Sheri LaBrant], again, just because of where we were racing. We worked a lot with [Zach King and Rachel King]. But as far as formalizing any alliances, we never did that. We just wanted to be friendly with everyone and help other teams as much as possible so hopefully they would do the same for us -- which was the case, honestly, a lot throughout the Race.

With that said, it is a race and we were prepared to U-Turn a team if we were in that second-to-last position and it meant us staying in the Race. But as far as a team that we found most intimidating, I don't know! I think it would probably be a team that had skills that we didn't, maybe a team like [Kurt Gibson and Brodie Smith]. I don't know. Erin, what would you say?

Erin White Robinson: [Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl] were incredibly strong also.

Joslyn Davis: Yeah, Tyler and Korey were probably a team that we would've wanted to U-Turn because they are so strong. They're really fast runners! Like, they can outrun every single person in this cast. They trained to run, so that was definitely a threat, and it was always going to be an asset for them throughout the Race.

So personally, I thought they were our biggest threat and I think they were a threat for a lot of other teams too. I think you're going to see some of that, too, play out later in the season.

Reality TV World: What expectations did you two set for yourselves going into the Race? Were you thinking, "Okay, we'll take this one leg at a time?" Maybe in that case you're glad about making it as far as you did. Or were you confident to the point you thought, "We can win this!" In that case, your elimination would've been a huge disappointment to you.

Erin White Robinson: I will say that what we saw in other seasons -- Joslyn and I are both fans of the show -- and what we've seen consistently are teams that kind of stay in the middle of the pack and who aren't deemed as a threat by other teams seem to last longer and can really win it.

So, our goal going in was to never really show how competitive we were. We wanted to have the best time possible, of course, because this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we wanted to have the best time that we could.

But we wanted other teams to see us having a lot of fun so that they would maybe think we're not taking it so seriously -- even though, in private, we were definitely competitively strategizing. So our strategy was to stay in the middle of the pack, never let anyone think that we were a threat, and just get through each leg of the Race and take it one leg at a time.

It's great to win a leg, it's great to win a trip by Travelocity, I mean, that would all be really awesome. But for us, we didn't want to be up too close, because we just didn't want anybody to know that we were a competitor.

Reality TV World: Did you feel underestimated then, especially since you were an all-female team?

Joslyn Davis: I don't think we felt underestimated. I think we're the type of people who try not to let other people's opinions of us sway us one way or another. So, we were just really focused on running our own race and focused on doing our own personal best. Did people not take us as seriously? I'm sure they didn't. I'm sure they didn't.

Historically, again, as fans of the show, you know it hasn't been very frequently that female-female teams have won. So, that in and of itself sort of plays a role in what people think of you. And like Erin said, we weren't really playing all of our cards and putting them out there, so for all we knew, people had no clue what we were capable of.

That said, we were prepared to go all the way to the end. We wanted to win the Race. We intended to win the Race. And we were sad to go, but we knew that there was nothing we could've done to change the outcome. We want a re-do!

Reality TV World: Thinking about a couple episodes back, how did you feel about everything that unfolded with Jessica Versteeg and Brittany Oldehoff when Jessica was trying to complete the flags Roadblock task at the UN building and none of the girls would help her at the end? Jessica cried and felt so excluded.

Joslyn Davis: You know, there was so much that was not shown on TV! It was really disappointing that unfortunately everything that happened in that task was not shown -- and I don't understand why it wasn't, because it makes it seem more dramatic -- but Jessica showed up to the Roadblock when we were literally pretty much done.

We were getting ready to start turning our cards in and get them checked at the UN, and I noticed on the show when I watched it that she was yelling at us, but to be honest, in that moment when we were turning our cards in, I did not even hear her, because I would've helped her.

So as we were leaving the Roadblock, and I was the final one of the three of us to leave, I actually stopped and helped her and gave her the flag that was most challenging for me -- Costa Rica.

And I told her that was the hardest one for me to find, etc. And I guess she got confused after that about what flag it was -- I don't know if it wasn't there -- and it ended up being something that was challenging for her.

So, some people thought maybe I had done that on purpose to try to throw her off, and I know I saw that Brittany said she wasn't sure if I had done that on purpose, but I absolutely did NOT do that on purpose. It was a bummer for women to be pitted against each other on television, and for me, that was personally upsetting.

But as long as the people involved know what the truth is and what our intentions were, that's all that matters to me. So, Jessica actually talked to me after the episode aired and she was fine. I explained I wouldn't have done that to her. So that's all that matters to me!

Reality TV World: Since you were fans of The Amazing Race, did you actually apply to compete on the show or did producers contact you because of the whole social media theme?

Erin White Robinson: CBS actually approached me while we were at Comic-Con. It was kind of a really fast and furious thing, and I think they were looking for a few more maybe female teams that were influencers. So they did approach us, but we did actually have to submit an audition tape.

So we still had to go through the whole process that every single applicant goes through. We had to officially apply, we had to go through all of the interviews. So as much as we were recruited, I guess you could say, we were treated just like any other contestant would be treated.

And the reason why Joslyn and I never applied before is because it's such a, you know, longshot that you even get to be on the show. So we kind of figured that we never would be able to do it anyway, (laughs) so we just never did. So, it's just funny how life works out that way.

Amazing Race Insider: Erin and Joslyn Detail Chamonix's Alps and Downs
By Joslyn Davis and Erin Robinson / March 11 2016, 6:00 PM PDT

The Amazing Race team of Erin Robinson and Joslyn Davis — hosts of the Clevver entertainment news hub — share with TVLine weekly behind-the-scenes secrets.

JOSLYN

BOY CRAZY IN FRANCE | By this leg in the race, we’d been running around like cray people for a while, and so the obvious fatigue, coupled with the high altitude, is what I’m going to say was to blame for my out-of-control flirtation and general boy-craziness. I don’t know what came over me (because I swear I’m generally civilized), but when Erin and I got to the top of the mountain climb detour in Chamonix, ready to give our “lunch” to the man at mountain’s peak, all I could think was, “Wow, he’s like really handsome,” and my first question was literally asking whether or not he was single. Literally, that’s all I wanted to know. I didn’t care about the detour at all, I just wanted to know what this man’s situation was. So embarrassing. Without missing a beat, he told me he was not available. So funny, so mortifying. So Erin and I moved on.

When got into our car, we proceeded to ask our driver if he was single and willing to mingle (with us). He too shut us down immediately. It was ridiculous and we totally deserved it. In hindsight, I’m realizing I looked and smelled like an aged gargoyle by this point in the leg. So, with zero hope for romance, we gave up and decided to sing an original song about “balls.” Clearly, we had zero self-respect or lady-like manners left at this point. The song was absolutely ridiculous, completely ear-melting (in a bad way) and again, I blame it all on the altitude. Because that makes sense, right?

ERIN

OUT TO “LUNCH?” | Maybe it was the freshly fallen snow on the ground that threw us off, but we were way too excited to be racing in the French Alps. Our excitement led both Joslyn and I to lose about 20 minutes because misread our clue three times before we ever got to the detour. Amateur moves. Once we picked our detour, we needed to make sure we read every detail of every single sentence. In our clue it asked us to deliver “lunch” and dynamite to a guy on the tip of the needle. Where was the freaking lunch? In our designated backpacks there were large baguettes, but this couldn’t possibly be lunch! (Joslyn and I are carnivores and this would never cut it as a meal for us.) We proceeded to scour the needle looking for marked lunch bags. It also didn’t help that Blair and Scott were doing the “lunch” detour and casually said to us in passing, “Don’t forget your lunch!” What did they mean? We finally decided that we were just going to risk it and traverse the mountain with only a baguette, and luckily for us the mountain man was really just into carbs. In case the snow was not a dead giveaway, we knew for sure that we were not in Los Angeles any more…

JOSLYN

SNOW SHOES | Most racers in our season will agree that Chamonix was easily the most beautiful place we visited, hands down. I 100-percent expected to see Santa Freakin’ Claus and his reindeer fly by at any moment. With that caveat in mind, came some craziness. For example, when Erin and I were climbing the mountain during the detour, homegirl could not keep her shoe on her foot. Sounds crazy, but it turns out that keeping your shoes on your feet whilst traversing a mounting is kind of important! And who knew having to stop and tie your shoes on the side of one of the tallest mountains in the French Alps would be such a challenge. Not only that, at one point during our climb a rock slid off the mountain and landed on my face. My adrenaline was pumping so hard I didn’t ever realize my nose had been cut and my face was bleeding. When someone later pointed it out to me, I felt like I had the most hardcore street-cred I’d ever had in my life. And thanks to a quick mid-race check up from the one-and-only Dr. Daddy himself, I knew it wasn’t broken. Yes, Dr. Daddy is that wonderful. The gem of a man really did stop to see if I’d broken my nose while our partners were paragliding.

ERIN

I CAN’T FEEL MY FACE WHEN FLIGHT PLANS FALL THROUGH | Paragliding off the side of that mountain was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. When mountains are covered in several feet of snow, it’s actually really hard to run down them while also being strapped into several contraptions with a large man attached to your back. This road block required wind, and a lot of it, in order to perfectly lift off the side of that mountain. Unfortunately, I had zero wind beneath my wings. Because of our placement on the mountain top, we were not catching any of the backwind that we needed to take off. I saw teams who arrived there after me take off right away because they caught the wind at just the perfect time. Not only was it frustrating to watch others cash in on the weather lottery, but it was even more frustrating that I ended up face-planting twice into several feet of snow before we ever caught a breeze strong enough to pick us up. Shout out to the one and only hiker out there who saw me struggling to climb up that snow-covered mountain and threw down one of his walking sticks to help me.

As difficult as it was to keep my spirits up, I never gave up. I know that so much of this experience is luck (this challenge especially), and as it sometimes happens on the race, the odds were not in our favor in Chamonix. However, the scene of a million fir trees covered in snow spread out beneath me as I flew through the sky was a divine experience I would not trade for anything, even a million dollars! In the end, I was more than grateful to God and of course Amazing Race for the opportunity to race around the world with some of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met.

JOSLYN

TINKERBELL | Never in my life have I felt like I was flying more than when I had to pull myself across that line to get our clue at the top of the mountain in Chamonix. We arrived at the mountain with Sheri and Cole, who we knew were not so excited about heights, but I was so pumped about doing this. Not gonna lie, there was a moment where I looked down at the ground and had a “come to Jesus moment,” but all in all, this was one of my favorite moments from the Race, because I felt like I was literally Tinkerbell from Peter Pan, except my Neverland had me flying across the French Alps. It was such a gorgeous, clear day, and all of the racers were on the mountain at pretty much the same time. It was a really beautiful, surreal, magical, yet totally insane and chaotic experience… which basically sums up the whole Race.

You Won't Believe These Fun Facts About The New Amazing Race Cast
http://www.cbs.com/shows/amazing_race/photos/1005631/you-won-t-believe-these-fun-facts-about-the-new-amazing-race-cast/101478/when-looking-back-at-their-accomplishments-what-are-erin-and-joslyn-most-proud-of-/

When looking back at their accomplishments, what are Erin and Joslyn most proud of?

Erin’s most proud to represent her culture as the first Lumbee Indian to ever compete on The Amazing Race, while Joslyn is gratified to receive credit for naming a Crayola crayon color when she was only 12 years old. (Her proposed shade is "Tickle Me Pink," in case you'd like to check your coloring boxes.)
