What three words would Cameron and Darius use to describe themsevles?

Vine star Cameron decided to answer with "hotter in person." On the other hand, his brother Darius, who has over 3 million followers on YouTube, responded with "intellectual, athletic, and multi-talented."

They were likable, too bad their mistakes ate up most of their race.

They were probably my favourite team, bar Blair & Scott, but even I can't defend Darius' serious balls up at the RB.  How did he not know who to give the bags too?  :groan:
There seems to be a new curse with African American teams, where almost every Season see's Leg 2 / 3 be their downfall.  :gaah:  :lol:

I had realised per spoilers that they would be outed this leg, so it was strange to see them have a big lead on some teams at the beginning of the RB. And then Darius also collected all the bags in 8th IIRC? ???
Damn, I wish they'd survived, but not at the cost of Zach & Rachel.. And I actually wanted them to go last week instead of Marty & Hagan, but there's just something about the trainwreck/underdog teams that makes you root for them. Plus their placements were always all over the place with huge dips and comebacks. :lol:

Hence the words "new curse" and "almost every season" :lol:
