The Amazing Race Cast: Jill and Thomas
Honestly, it's hard to know, like from what we know and from what we saw, they found it pretty quickly. So, we did the memory challenge very quickly and they actually did too. They had a few hiccups but nothing wrong, so I just don't think like I was saying, there was just no chance to ever get ahead of somebody unless something happened with the cab drivers. I felt like it was ultimately who got in the first cab from the airport, because then when it went to the drop, it's like you have your [instructional] briefings and then you have to wait for them to get off, down to the raft and up, so if you're there first, you have such a big lead.
When you're arriving at the -- when we did that the bungee jumping type of task -- if you arrive there first, you leave there first. You can't get ahead of anybody there, so there's no challenge or competition involved there. It was really surprising when they were like, "Go to the Pit Stop.
There was no chance obviously. We were disappointed because we had such bad luck with the cab driver, but reflecting and looking back on that leg, there wasn't a lot of competition involved with it. Honestly, making sure you don't make mistakes -- Nat and Kat certainly did that and deservingly so finished first -- but you'd like to think that you'd have a chance to -- that there would be a little bit more of an element of competition involved in the final leg.
Did your driver really have no idea what the Internet was and the difference between a GPS and a computer? Yeah we kept saying, "Computer! I mean, maybe he knows and he just doesn't realize our language and doesn't understand what we're saying, but he was pretty clueless.
Jill, you seemed to get pretty scared during the bungee drop. Was that actually the case or was that just the editing? No, I mean I definitely have a little fear of heights. Even when I rappelled off that canyon, I was terrified.

She did it and she did it well. Yeah, I'm extremely uncomfortable with heights. Jill, I'm paraphrasing, but during the Race you were shown repeatedly mentioning how one of your goals during the Race was to basically try and prove you were Thomas' equal.
Can you talk a little bit about that, and then also about whether you think you accomplished that goal? I don't think she said anything about being an equal.
Yeah, not at all, and I felt like almost the way it was edited was just really far off. We've been dating for over four years and they don't show one of the hundreds of reasons why I say I love what I do.
So, and, all of those things. So, if anything, there were definitely some joking times that I was like, "Oh yeah, I'll show Thomas that you don't have to go to college to win The Amazing Race. Thomas, how about you?
Were you aware of anything like that at the time? Aware of anything like what? The issue Jill had talked about, about not needing to go to college and things like that. Well that's an element of the dynamic of our team.
That's one of the things that they talked about. They over-focused on it in the beginning and almost made it seem like a "too good for her" type of a situation, which is so far from the case, but I think they just really like the fact that he went to Notre Dame and I went to cosmetology school and it's not like there's anything wrong with that, but it was just something that I think that they thought it would kind of be fun to see maybe the ditsy blonde with the smart guy, but that was definitely not the case.
Yeah, I just think kind of my nature is a little bit -- I'm a little bit like more strong-minded -- and so when we're doing these type of competitions, it's like I'll jump to the task first. But the Race is two people. Two people have to complete it together, and certainly have to share Roadblock challenges, so it's something you gotta do together.
Yeah, Thomas, there seemed to be a few situations in the Race where Jill asked you if you'd done some unusual thing before and you always seemed to tell her you'd done it before Oh, how -- I mean that gondola thing, I grew up in Colorado and I ski a lot -- that's all it was, were referring directly to skiing. We were talking about skiing and then they were like, "Oh yeah, I take gondolas all over the place!
I should have specified.

I was meaning more like a scenic gondola, just saying that it was taking us to more of a remote location. And right after I said it, that's kind of how I explained it. Of course he's been on a gondola, he grew up in Colorado, and with the train, I was asking him if he ever slept on a train.

So, I didn't feel like that was a crazy question to ask, but they do try to make it look like he's just like, "Obviously I have.
Took it a little bit out of context, but we knew that going into it. You guys were the team that ended up with this season's new Express Pass twist and it looked like it played a pretty big role in your ability to survive one of the early legs. Do you think you would survived that leg and been able to get as far as your did if you hadn't had the Express Pass? I wish we almost would have just -- because we were done -- we did go to [The "Sleds" Detour task].
Yeah, basically what happened is we arrived in last place obviously, because of the Detour, and the first thing that we saw was [the "Beds" Detour task] challenge and nobody was there. And we wanted to make sure that all four teams in the back of the pack were still doing the challenge, so immediately we drove to the skiing challenge, and we saw four cars there.I Know You're Married (But I Love You Still)
We knew that -- we were explained that you had to finish the task in less than two minutes -- and it was also explained that you had to take a minute chair-lift ride up to the challenge. So, if we had attempted to do that, and all teams -- we didn't know how difficult it was -- if all teams would have gotten it their first try, then we would have been going up the chair-lift when everybody was going to the Pit Stop and not use our Express Pass.
So, honestly, that didn't end up being the case and people had a lot of trouble But you never know You never know, so you want to be safe and it'd be pretty embarrassing to lose with still having your Express Pass.
So we just thought it was a good time to jump out and do it. And it also gave us a decent jump on the next leg as well. So it was helpful. Oh, not at all! I think it's a good idea. You have to win to get it, so that's part of the competition. You have to do something to deserve the Express Pass. A lot of times there's elements of bad luck obviously, as we saw in this last leg, and if you have that Express Pass in your back pocket, and something bad happens to you, it could save you from elimination.
And so I think it's a pretty cool addition to the Race, and I don't think it takes away from anything whatsoever.
