Chip and Reichen broke up Sunday.

The relationship between married couple and The Amazing Race 4 winners Reichen Lehmkuhl and Chip Arndt has, as of last Sunday, “officially come to an end,” Reichen says. He tells Metro Weekly that because of CBS’ six-month delay in airing the show, they “only had each other for six months as a sounding board. And that put a lot of stress on the both of us because we had a lot of arguments. We kind of started falling apart.”

Still, he says “I think the problems that Chip and I have are out of the scope of the race.” He also talks to the paper about his work with the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, and about his time in the military.
