Colin on Race producers: “You’d think they’d have some kind of morals.”

Colin on Race producers: “You’d think they’d have some kind of morals.”
Colin Guinn and Christie Woods are continuing their post-Amazing Race 5 face-saving spin. The latest: Colin, a guy who refused to pay a cab driver the agreed-upon fare in Tanzania, says of the alleged distortion of his character via editing, “This kind of thing happened like three times every episode. You’d think they’d have some kind of morals.” The show’s executive producer and creator Bertram van Munster insists that Colin was portrayed accurately: “We’re not showing anything out of context. We’re showing everything chronologically. It’s true cinema verite.” He tells the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, “We cannot portray them. They can only portray themselves because this is a reality show. What you see is what you get. It is just the way it is.” Colin has a friend in Marshall Hudes, who says that, in public, “The most common thing I felt myself doing was defending Colin and Christie because they’re really not the way they were portrayed on the show. When you take things out of context, they can appear very different than when it really happened.”
+ plus: as Chip and Kim ran to the finish line, the car that van Munster and CBS exec exec Ghen Maynard had arrived in crashed into a river.
