What qualities do you hope your partner has? People skills.

Ashton has the best first impression for that in my opinion. :lol: Now I get some sort of an insight on his rather odd choice.

He and Ashton worked great in Leg 2! I had a feeling they would go from being an odd pair to working well together.

The quick transition from total malfunction to such smooth communication was very unexpected!

I get that his communication issues with Ashton make a big impact in his race, but I wanna see more stuff like 135 degrees to the right or 120% being mathematically impossible. :lol:

Just really bad day for them to fall for the U-Turn in one of the worst leg design ever. But that inspirational send-off tho. <3

I have to commend him for putting up with a nagging partner like Ashton. Calm cool collected and mathematically oriented.

He was cool. In some ways like a real-life Sheldon Cooper (he liked it when I made that reference on Twitter one time)
