Amazing Race's Eliminated Goths Kent and Vyxsin Slam Globetrotters as Are you two dating or just friends? V: We've been dating for a while.

Just like football players before a big game when they get their shoulder pads and their helmet on. How long on average did it take to put on your game face? Never more than 30 minutes. But that would include getting dressed. And the stuff we do on the show is pretty streamlined — like "Kynt and Vyxsin Light.
Kynt & Vyxsin (dating goths)
Kynt, you said all the costumed villagers in Lithuania made you feel normal. Funny, since you guys go out of your way to be different.
He wasn't saying, "Oh, at last, I feel normal! We were surrounded by elves, dwarves, fairies and little critters. When we got there, it was like we were almost hypnotized by it. We started playing around with all the little creatures and dancing. One of them invited us into their home and we had a biscuit and some tea. That was our favorite moment. Then we looked at each other and we were like What are we doing? We've got to get back to racing!
Thankfully, we did not have any items explode or break, believe it or not. But packing was difficult, because we had so many things we wanted to bring: You did not bring a flatiron on The Amazing Race!
I've got a little bit of wave. And I like it to be kind of straight and pointy. I was the first person [on the series] to bring a flatiron. Phil did name us the most fashionable team in Amazing Race history. So we were happy to win something.
Amazing Race 12
Too bad it wasn't one of the legs of the race. We came in second three times. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride. This whole experience has just been such a blessing.The Amazing Race 18 - First Fight, Part 1
I wake up every morning and wonder if it really happened. It feels like a crazy, wonderful dream. But then you watch the tape. What's it been like to see the comments the other teams made about you?
It gives us a giggle. Looking how Kynt and I do, I can't say we haven't been called names before, and sometimes they've been quite a bit harsher and meaner than those. It's unfortunate when people resort to that What kind of reception but did you generally get? Our look is different, but it's not intimidating, you know? We give off a very friendly vibe. And I think people could pick up on that.
Also, I found that because we were something different, usually it was an advantage for us when dealing with people.
We weren't the strongest team, the most athletic or the smartest. But we were stubborn. We would never stop. Like Vyxsin said on the first episode, "We were like Gothic Energizer bunnies. Ah, your famous line. A couple of weeks ago, Azaria and Hendekea told me they felt like you two turned it on for the camera.
How do you react to that? I don't think that's accurate because they never saw us when cameras weren't around. We were followed by a camera crew 24 hours a day. And I would say that of the other teams, too.
We never saw any of them not being filmed. I don't feel like we really know the other teams very well outside of the context of The Amazing Race. Didn't you spend some time with them at the Elimination Station in Portugal? Because we were so close to the end, they took us to the ending destination. You got the shaft. You didn't win anything and you missed out on the resort part. But I wouldn't have traded India and Italy for anything.
Speaking of Italy, that's where you had a meltdown. Kynt even threatened to jump out of the car at one point. And I don't blame him.
Kent & Vyxsin
We got super lost. When we got to the [accident on the highway] we decided to go on this insane mountain road. So I drove all night long on these tiny, hairpin turns up and down these crazy, super narrow, dark mountain roads. I couldn't even blink.
We had no food, no water. And there was no way to get water. And no gas stations. I was pretty much delirious.
Honestly, I shouldn't have been driving. No one who's been awake for a few days should be driving. It's just not smart. It was our one bad moment in The Amazing Race, and it was quick.
True, and you didn't jump. Sat Oct 27, 1: Sat Sep 06, 8: Perth, Australia I agree that the gradual simplification of the make-up over time will be very funny to watch, corkystclair.
They're certainly my favourite of the dating couples by far. OK, there may be an element of freakshow in the presentation so far, but if the likes of Charla and Sarah demonstrated that different racers from the norm are just as valid competitors as anyone else, so can these guys. Sat Oct 27, Wed May 14, 1: Vancouver, Canada You really might want to avoid using the word "freakshow" in a sentence where you are drawing comparisons to previous racers with physical disabilities.
And there is a huge difference between a disability that affects every aspect of one's daily life, and a lifestyle that affects how much black eye-liner one needs to pack. Perth, Australia Bad choice of word there, Zron, you're right - what I was referring to was more the way the promotional material tends to make great mileage out of "difference", regardless of whether it's on a superficial level or something more significant. Mon Mar 12, NYC I already like them - her hair is my favorite color!
And they dress alike - which I always love in a team. Maybe they will be like the Guidos? I am also looking forward to the hair and make-up meltdown. When I was in art school, most all of the women and most of the men had elaborate hair styles that required attention. My friend Noreen and I quite stood out with our unremarkable coiffure. I can tell you, there is nothing like the sight of a magenta colored, facid mohawk at 9 AM to curdle one's coffee.
