I am curious how rob is managing to get through the race where Corey isn't with him, does his cameraman know sign language?

I wish TAR would show this on-screen. It would perhaps prompt other d/Deaf contestants to realize that it's also possible for them.

We saw one at the first Roadblock. Maybe that same person travelled with the crew throughout the race.

I get what you're saying but we had Luke on for THREE seasons. I think deaf people know they can compete on TAR.

There's one on Big Brother right now - Matt 😅

It's a good year for deaf contestants on CBS reality

Yes, but Big Brother has been in hot water for how they have made the season unfair for Matt to compete in. TAR did much better with Rob.

Rob and Corey Amazing Race Application Video

Check out the application video that we used, to ultimately be selected for The Amazing Race Season 35!

I don't post much on this website anymore. Still watch the show, but life has gotten in the way a little of me being as active of a member as I was in the past, but I must say that Rob and Corey were my favorite Amazing Race team in like the last 20 seasons.

I found their relationship compelling, and how competitive Rob was racing against the other teams while having a disability that makes it harder to race well was truly fascinating and inspiring to watch. How Corey helped him was terrific too.

Was hoping they would've won, but anything can happen on that final leg. Hopefully we see them back again at some point on another season, if they are interested.
