wrapped naked in a flag, Reichen says, “I don’t believe that I’m good looking.”
Naked and wrapped in an American flag, The Amazing Race 4 winners Chip Arndt and Reichen Lehmkuhl appear on the cover of The Advocate this week. Reichen talks about his childhood and says he’s now “very insecure. I don’t believe that I’m good looking.” They also talk about their experiences on their show and about their relationship, which recently ended. Chip says, “We were at a stage in our lives where working things through was more anxiety ridden and hurtful to each other than just saying let’s go our separate ways, who knows what happens in three or five or six years down the line.”
