How would you describe your overall experience on The Amazing Race?
One of the best things to ever happen to me. I wish I could live every day like that!
Although you and your teammate Jaree have been friends for several years, you seemed to argue a lot during the competition; was this unusual, and do you think this worked against you in the competition?
We don't argue in real life, it was the stress--we started out with a disadvantage that set the tone for the beginning. But we pulled through it, and I'm so proud of ourselves.
A lot of gay viewers believe you and Jaree must be a couple because you bicker so much. What’s your response, and are you two still in touch?
We are best friends and no, there's no physical/romantic attachment. But I do love her to death.
Before the show started, your bio on CBS mentioned you “liked girls” and then removed that reference to your sexuality a few weeks later. Why?
I never asked them to remove it, so I'm not sure--I'll have to hunt down that answer.
How do you define your sexuality? (lesbian, bi, etc.)
The way I feel about my sexuality is that I am open to finding my soul mate from whomever it may come from.
The show very much promoted Reichen and Chip’s sexuality but never mentioned the fact that you’re gay, too; was that your decision or theirs? Or did it just never come up during the race?
Well, there never really was a moment where it would have come into play.
What was the most challenging part of the race for you?
The bull pulling was very difficult. I didn't have the brute strength to hold on.
Which team did you like the most? Which one drove you nuts?
No one drove me nuts and I love the Supremes and Chip and Reichan. Everyone on the race is close and we chat all the time on our secret website.
Your interests include both modeling and acting; which do you prefer?
Acting by far, it is way more interesting and I just love both sides of the camera.
What are you doing now?
I'm doing a sci fi thriller [for the Sci Fi Channel] called Dark Queen where I play a nerdy scientist that finds a way to change her DNA into an evil supervillain (obviously not a hard stretch for me, ha ha
