Interview: Natalie & Nadiya talk The Amazing Race
HitFix: You guys did say on last night's episode "We've always been evil. We've never been nice." How much of that was serious and how much was all part of a joke or character?
Natalie: That whole conversation, Josh, Brent, Nadiya and I were just hysterically laughing and sitting around watching, because so much more was said that was so funny. For us it was just funny. But it true that even from the start, we never pretended that we were the "nice" team on the Race. We weren't Josh & Brent. Josh and Brent are so nice. Even on the final Leg, if Brent said something mean, Josh would be like, "That's not nice." Me and Nadiya are not like that. Just from the start, we were the bullies and the crazy people and we owned it. We never pretended to not be.
Natalie: Me and Nadiya, we found money. We didn't steal it, although a lot fans like it dub it as stealing so they can have something to b**** about, but me and Nadiya found the money fair and square and we OKed it with production, kept it and shared it because we found it with another team. We felt bad for Trey & Lexi because they were so much more sensitive than Nadiya and I when it comes to how people treat them and comment on stuff on Facebook. Me and Nadiya are much more thick-skinned. The only people that I care about know me as a person outside of the Race and we know that competing in "The Amazing Race" is different from real life. The people who find it difficult to separate the two are the people that have a huge problem with it and I really don't care what they think.
These two amused me
The average dog is a nicer person than the average person
OMG - I can hear their voices in my head saying these words....
For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.

I've always said you can call if "finding" or you can call it "stealing" or you can call it "tiddlywinks" but at the end of the day it is not something I would have done. If they felt comfortable with it, and production ok'd it, then fine. They can say it's ok, I am free to say it's not and frankly it chaps my hide that they try to make it seem like those who had a problem with it just "needed something to b&(&*( about"
You're not winning me over, girls.
They don't care what people think of them? Excellent. I won't have to feel guilty that I may be hurting their feelings because I think that they are all-round disgusting, then. And not just the thievery.
All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.
I hope they lose something & no one returns it, just so they can find out how it feels!
Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
More like, I hope they accidentally drop something, and the person next to them knows it's theirs, picks it up, pockets it, and laughs about it. THEN I hope they find out about it . . . at which point I assume they will "high five" the finder and say, "Good job - production said you didn't do anything wrong and you can keep it and that's GREAT!!!!"
