To begin reading our interview with Mona and Beth, click here. For the initial portion of Caroline and Jennifer's interview, click here. You guys raced side by side with Caroline and Jennifer for many of the season's legs. Could you talk about your reasoning for racing so closely with them?
Was it strategic because you didn't think they were a threatening team so it wouldn't hurt to take them to the end or was it simply because you guys had all become great friends and you truly wanted to help them out? Oh, we definitely became good friends. We still talk to this day. We helped each other out. They definitely helped us with the hardest part of our Race -- was getting airline tickets and stuff like that.

And they were right by our side trying to help us out, and we tried to help them as much as we could, you know, picking up their dog in Switzerland and whatever we could do to help them out. But they helped us out probably more. Yeah, they probably helped us out more than we helped them.
We tried, but I mean, we weren't that strong. Laughs We really weren't that strong. Could you guys talk a little more about your relationships with Caroline and Jennifer? I remember at one point in the season Caroline mentioned Jennifer had a crush on Bates. Bates, were you kind of reciprocating those feelings. And Anthony, how did you feel about the dynamic between your two teams? Bates was all over her. It's unbelievable, like they were making out -- no, I'm just kidding.
They would not stop talking. I just wanted to do the Race, and Bates, you know, I just wanted to switch partners. You were embarrassing yourself. No, that's not even true -- not even true at all.
Did either of you end up actually dating either of the girls after the Race? No, we are very good friends, but no. It ended right there as friends. Not only did you guys help out Caroline and Jennifer during the second half of the Race, but you were in an alliance with pretty much all the teams except for Mona and Beth and [ Joey Graceffa ] and [ Meghan Camarena ].
It seemed like the toughest competitors stuck together and targeted the teams who weren't really winning any legs.
Could you talk about the thought process there? Was it a "keep your enemies close" type of situation? Well actually, going into it, we tried to be friends with everybody.

I mean, we liked everybody. We were friends and all that stuff, but when it came down to the very end there with the U-Turn and all that stuff, we had to use the alliance and shut them down a little bit.
You had made it clear you thought Mona and Beth were going to be a tougher team to beat in the finale than Caroline and Jennifer, as you were both a little disappointed when you learned you'd be going up against Mona and Beth. Would you mind sharing why you had that perspective?
Well I mean, Mona and Beth probably were the toughest team. They obviously made it to the finals, and if it came down to it, we were going to beat them in a foot race. If the girls were going to give us a problem, you know, we're a tough team. We're good to go! Mona and Beth though, they were an extremely strong team, like overall, I think they were the strongest team in the Race.

I will absolutely say that in a second. I thought they were super strong. What were your general opinions of Joey and Meghan? It almost seemed like your alliance working against them was a personal issue rather than a strategic one. And when I talked to the pair last week, they believed they had become outcasts simply because a few of the other teams just didn't like them. What's your response to that? Oh absolutely it was all strategic! And looking back, Max was really good at directions. He always knew where he was going.
We would definitely follow him again. Do you think you followed too much? When you were by yourselves, you got lost most of the time. I think we probably followed as much as everybody else followed.
We went out by ourselves a lot. A couple times when we got lost, we were like, "Oh, my God! We're the only team that's lost. When you don't have a phone, no map, there's a language barrier, it's just really hard.
And sometimes when there's a pack of you, you don't necessarily want to go out on your own when you don't really know where you're going. What if you're wrong and they're all right and you get separated from the pack?
I think that's why it's so stressful. There are a million thoughts going through your head all the time and you have to pick the right thing to do and you never know what that is. Get the scoop on 39 must-watch finales Are you mad that Anthony helped Mona and Beth with the menu? He said it was an accident. But they could still be there right now if it weren't for him. We are so mad at Anthony!
Everyone was really nice.
No one was trying to backstab each other. We might have had alliances, but everybody still liked each other and it's human nature to want to help people. But then you're like, "Oh, my God! I'm in a race! There was a lot of flirting. Well, we're getting married. We're having a double wedding.
You can be the flower girl; we need one. TV Guide can come cover the whole thing! Just send a Save the Date. Have you written a song about them yet? Oh, my God, Caroline! Phil told me that he thought you two, not the guys, knew where to draw the line with the flirting and race. We helped them so much! They wouldn't have made it to Scotland if it wasn't for us.

It's so funny how everyone's like, "Oh, the girls just followed the guys. The thing about Jen and me is So when we meet people that we like, we can't help but hug them. It comes across as flirty, but we're not trying to be their girlfriends. We just love everybody. Did you offer Bates your thongs like you said you would? I offered him my thongs, but he didn't take it. He has a thing for them.
He says he likes them. Well, I mean, he's got a tight little hockey booty, so he's got to show it off. I did give him my deodorant, which probably saved him, or saved his brother at least. Did you ever consider U-Turning them if you had the chance? No, we didn't, but if we had to, we would've. At the end of the day, we were in it for ourselves.
But we didn't want to U-Turn anyone. And luckily we didn't have to.
