5. Did you spend a lot of time creating bonds with the other teams between legs?
Ernest: "As much as a lot of people think the teams have a lot of time to bond, you actually don't because your mind is racing the whole time and you're usually thinking about the competition. But, when we have time to chill at the airport or maybe sit at a Roadblock or Detour, you do talk a little and get to know the teams. The teams that we bonded with and had great friendships with would be #TheCousins, #TheReporters, and #TheCheerleaders. Those are definitely my top three."
Jin: "It’s not like we [had] much time, because everyone is dead tired. So, most of the bonding happens in front of the cameras. After the Race, though, is where the real bonding happens. No pressure, no hidden agendas, just people kicking it, relaxing, and getting to know each other."
