Mirna says Colin “threatened me” and “told me he was going to break my legs.”
Mirna says that her mortal Amazing Race 5 enemy Colin “told me he was going to break my legs.” She tells TV Guide that “He threatened me and started acting on his threats. I don’t think he could stand being beaten by a couple of girls.” At one point, she says, “top-level security was on him when they saw him trying to make me fall at the ticket counter.” Sound unbelievable? Mirna admits that “some of the things I’ve said that have sounded outrageous, you will come to understand them in due time. Trust me on that.” Did they play the game aggressively? Charla says, “We had to be as aggressive as we could in order to play this game, because that’s what we were there for. And we used what we had.” Talking about their loss, Charla says that “we kind of feel like we let people down and ourselves down almost. We expected to get to the end and win. People are proud of us and we’re grateful, but we kind of expected more!”
+ also: should Charla “be tarred with the same brush as her wildly unpopular cousin”?
