Brent and Caite...Third Place

Recommended Posts

I am so over these two! I honestly can't believe I ever liked them...I guess I'm more shallow than I thought.

I'm not so sure Caite is stupid. I actually heard her use the subjunctive correctly in last night's episode so somewhere in her past she absorbed English grammar. And look how far the team has gotten. Not that I like either of them or want them to win but I think they're running a good race. Caite is young, vindictive and eager- she makes a good contestant. Her partner, on the other hand, is really the stupid one IMO.

I'm glad they're still there and the sore loser lesbians are gone. I wouldn't call someone who is responsible for my elimination stupid. Whether or not Brent & Caite win, they made sure the team that was mean to them will not win. That was obviously very important to them. And in that way, they accomplished their goal. Carol & Brandy can call them stupid all day long, but when all is said & done, Brent & Caite lasted longer in the race than they did.

I don't love Carol and Brandy, and she(Brandy I think?) sure pitched a fit, but I am pretty sure they meant that was a stupid move. There were two teams still racing that have come in first several times and they u-turned neither of them. That is a stupid move in TAR, where it is about coming in first, not about liking/disliking people.

Above and beyond that I only have to say, "Um, with the, um U.S. Americans, and like the Iraq...and when you look at the Afghanistan, and such..." lol, that youtube video is so awesome.

I don't love Brent and Caite and I agree that Carol and Brandy were referring to their "stupid move", but Carol and Brandy made an enemy. And whether or not they win, Brent and Caite eliminated their enemy. It was a "stupid move" for Carol and Brandy not to anticipate that might come back to bite them in the ass.

I think that they probably were a tad mean to Caite. She might not be Rhodes Scholar material but we all have feelings. Good for Caite. Actually, those two seem happy despite what people think. Ignorance is bliss, perhaps, but bliss is bliss.

I was hoping that Mike/Louie and Brent/Caite talking about u-turning the lesbians was foreshadowing! lol It made me regain a little of my lost love for them.

I hated these two at first, and frankly, her valley girl voice still annoys me, but they have kind of grown on me, if for nothing else than entertainment value. Their little spats and childish ways with each other just crack me up. Out of the ones left, I can deal with them being one of the final three.

Come on, admit it. We're all very surprised and a little impressed that Caite is the last woman standing.

I thought that they were tough in the challenges and many times came-through when I thought that they would not. Can't be easy making it to the final 3. Kudos to Caite for ridding the show of that absolutely awful, hard woman with the crew cut. Caite had the final say, imo; by showing some class and being prepared to forgive and forget but oh no, the bitter one stayed true to her mean self till the bitter end. I wish Caite well. She'll grow-up. I hope that she does not marry Brent. Better to be friends with that one and romance somebody else.

There's an interview with Dan and Jordan where Jordan unequivocally states that Caite is not homophobic (and he should know) and that he and Caite are friends. Caite had every reason not to like the two women. They made fun of her. She was in the race to prove she was not an idiot and they tried to make her out to be one. An idiot does not make the final 3, so I think Caite proved herself. Good for her.

When I heard that Brent and Caite were joining The Amazing Race, the first thing that came to my head was that thing Caite did during the Miss Teen USA pageant years back. I thought it'd be amusing to see her race. I thought Brent and Caite wouldn't last long, but I kept that opinion throughout the race--at least until the last two legs, when I realized that there's more to Brent and Caite than I thought.

I caught up with Brent and Caite early this week, and apart from the obvious discussion of the lesbian couple's comments against them, we talked about losing sleep during pit stops and why Caite will never go away.

Whose idea was it to join The Amazing Race?

Brent: It was my idea to do the race. I love competing and traveling and I thought it would be an amazing experience. It has been one of my favorite shows to watch.

Caite: We both are Amazing Race fans.

Brent: I also thought it would help me learn more about Caite and how she deals with situations.

What was the hardest part of the race to cope with?

Caite: Lack of sleep. Even though we were given rest periods, you are so anxious [about] what's to happen next that it's hard to let your body get the rest it needs.

Brent: Getting food poisoning and getting good taxis.

What, or who, was the biggest pain in the ass?

Caite: Brent was definitely the biggest pain. It's hard to be around someone 24/7 as they are bound to get on your nerves. He'd probably say the same thing about me.

Brent: Carol, Brandy and Caite.

Caite: But it would've been tough being around any teammate like that 24/7.

Did you both expect to go this far?

Brent: I certainly thought I could make it to the end of the race. I knew I could compete with anyone on any challenge.

Caite: It was obviously our goal and dream to achieve what we have achieved. We knew that we had a great opportunity to make it to the final three but it was all up to how we played the game as well as others, which are a big part in the final outcome of each leg.

This would sound like an obvious question, but what did you both think of Carol and Brandy? From where I am it did seem they were pretty harsh on you, but when I interviewed them they said they had "nothing but kindness and support" before the U-turn in Singapore.

Brent: I think they showed their true colors on the show and viewers got a taste of what it was like to put up with them the entire time.

Caite: I only once heard something nice come out of Carol and Brandy's mouths, which was when we were doing the incense task, as Brent and I were kicking their ass. They said to me, "good job, Caite." Other than that all they had to say were negative comments, not only about us but to other teams as well.

Brent: They are negative people and very judgmental. They knew nothing about me but threw me under the bus just because I was associated with Caite. Their lack of respect to everyone inevitably cost them the race.

Was the U-turn a personal move or a strategic one?

Caite: It was, for the most part, a personal move. Many times I heard mean comments out of their mouths when the cameras weren't on them. Constantly they complained about not wanting to be there so when we got to that U-turn. We made their wish come true for them.

Brent: Once I realized the type of people they were, I said I wasn't going to lose to them. Also I did feel like, once we got back to the States for a possible final leg, they could prove to be a strong team, obviously depending on what challenges were ahead.

Caite: I think they showed their true colors at the finale.

Brent, were you worried that Caite's reputation, so to speak, would affect you both on the race?

Brent: Yes, I was worried. I knew it could possibly put a target on our back. Plus, people don't really like her attitude and I thought she could cost us there.

Caite, looking back now, do you think you've overcome your flub at the Miss Teen USA pageant through your time on the race?

Caite: It has been three years since the pageant and I have continued to change people's views of me for the better. The race was the ultimate step and I feel like I have won as many people over as I'll be able to. I will always have haters, but that's life for you.

Which part of the race would you want to do again?

Brent: Definitely the final leg. It's the most important leg in the race because you are racing for a million dollars. Had Caite not left our money bag we, at least, could've had a shot for second.

Caite: I would love to travel the world and compete in the tasks again! I had an amazing time and I wish I could be given a second opportunity to compete again, although I know that's not possible.

What's next for both of you after the race?

Brent: Continue on with my career and see what opportunities present themselves.

Caite: I just did a photo shoot for Maxim and landed a couple of national commercials. I will continue to pursue my career in acting, hosting and modeling. My manager and I are working on a few things right now, including my own show which we will pitch soon, so I guarantee you'll see me again in the near future. I'm not going anywhere!
