Amazing Race 6’s Adam says he’s not gay; might auction off his hair horns.
The gayest straight man to ever run The Amazing Race says he’s not gay, really. Rebecca tells TV Guide that after meeting her race partner for the first time, she thought he was gay. Adam says “that’s gone on long before the show started. And you know, I do work at a predominantly gay gym and a lot of my clients are gay. I do wear tights, I’m an aerobics teacher, and I don’t mind being sensitive. Again, it doesn’t bother me at all– that’s just me.” But he preceded that comment with this one: “I wish the country could see me teach a spinning class, because a lot of people would quickly change their minds.” Oh, Adam. So how’s their “relationship” doing now? Adam says that, after they returned, “we took a little break and Rebecca actually told me one night, ‘I forbid you to call me.’ After that, we didn’t talk for two months. We actually watched the show apart and we missed each other, especially me watching the show without her.” Rebecca says they got back together only to do press, but says “it’s been really nice and we really enjoy each other. We really can’t put our relationship in a category because it is so multifaceted. We love each other, that’s the bottom line.” By the way, Adam fans might want to start trolling eBay: He says he’s “thinking of putting them up on eBay for an auction and donating the proceeds to a charity or something.” “Them” refers to his “hair horns,” which were cut off recently on The Early Show.
