Patrick says “we could hear on the walkie-talkies that” other teams were ahead.
Generally, the only rule on The Amazing Race is “never give up.” Many teams have insisted they were in last place, only to find that they were not. So watching Patrick essentially give up on this week’s episode of The Amazing Race 7 seemed like another example of premature quitting. But Patrick’s pessimism was backed by evidence we didn’t see, he tells TV Guide. While waiting for a new boat, he says “we could hear on the walkie-talkies that they had found their clues and were on their way to the pit stop.” He doesn’t specify whose walkie-talkies these were—productions or the boat crews’—but clearly they knew how everyone else was doing. Additionally, Patrick says they waited two hours for a cab and “were even thinking that we’d have to get a hostel and check into the pit stop in the morning.” Patrick also tells us why he hates Survivor’s Rob so much: He says when he saw them, “I was so annoyed because I love the show and I was like ‘Oh, my god, The Amazing Race is jumping the shark!’” He says it was great that, during the roadblock, Rob “got beat by two gay guys and a girl! [Yet] they’re giving him credit for playing the game like Survivor. It’s annoying, but there are a lot of people with their noses up Rob and Amber’s buttholes. But that’s cool—that’s what happens to media whores.”
