Also in our chat, this 23-year-old accounting student from Toronto, Ontario reveals how he knew the underdog food scientists would win. Below, read the entire Q&A with our “Amazing Race” Season 25 contest champ.
How did you know Amy and Maya would win the season?
I felt like if they somehow were able to make it to the final leg that they had a really good chance at winning because of the memory challenge that always takes place in that final leg. They may not have been the strongest team on the race but I felt like they were the smartest team, so that final leg really played to their strength.
Who were you rooting for, if not them?
I didn’t really have much of a rooting interest when it came to any of the teams this season, actually.
What team were you happiest to see eliminated?
How long have you been a fan of the race?
About five years.
I love the “Amazing Race” All-Star seasons more than any others. I liked this season, but not as much as some years past.
What one element of the race would you change?
I really dislike the non-elimination legs. I feel as if when the episode is over with that nothing was really accomplished because no one was even eliminated. If the producers are worried about getting a certain amount of episodes into the season then they should just add more teams. It would make each episode a little bit more intense knowing that a team is definitely going home every leg.
What other events do you predict at Gold Derby?
I predict mostly everything except for some of the reality shows I do not watch.
