A 30-minute penalty for taking a cab to the Pit Stop instead of going by foot doomed Kent Kaliber and Vyxsin Fiala on The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business, but the real drama came at the Roadblock when the Globetrotters accused Vyxsin of stealing Flight Time's gnome mold. "I didn't take it," Vyxsin tells TVGuide.com. "It was pretty clear on the episode the way they showed it when I put mine on the bottom shelf. I talked to the chocolate teachers and everybody said, 'No, of course, you didn't take it.'" Of course, that wasn't enough to stop the Globetrotters from taunting the Goths — behavior Kent dubs "pretty disgusting." See what else they have to say about the Globetrotters and which team should not be underestimated.
Amazing Race's Jet and Cord: It would've been "really cool" if someone told us the answer
What happened at the Roadblock? We were never conclusively shown what happened.
Vysxin: All I know is I didn't take his [mold]. Either he forgot where he put his or somebody else took it. I don't know. Honestly, those guys — Flight Time, Big Easy, Jen, Kisha, Gary and Mallory — are kind of a trifecta. Obviously, you don't want to think your friends made a mistake. It's easier to think the weird girl with pink hair made a mistake. What happened happened, but I know I didn't do anything wrong. We don't play minds games. We don't actually try to hurt other people or mess with other people. We just do the task.
Flight Time seemed to get over it, but Big Easy made a bigger deal out of it.
Kent: They were very appalling. That showed me a lot about their true colors. They're the "kick you when you're down" kind of guys. To harp on her over and over again — let's face the facts here: This is the second race where the Globetrotters have only advanced by bullying a woman. In their own season, they bullied Mika at the slide challenge, bringing her to tears. Now, they're bullying Vyxsin relentlessly. You saw in the episode — she never shot back at them and they kept going. That's pretty disgusting for a couple guys running around in jerseys like they're all-American heroes.
Vyxsin: That task took almost three hours. It wasn't one comment. It was hours of just [deep voice] "Hey Vxysin, how's it going?" and hollering at me. By the end of it, I was so bombarded with negativity and hostility and I just didn't know what to do with it. It's like, that's high school — athletes are picking on me! Having said that, it's fair to psyche someone out. There's nothing in the rules of the Race that says you can't psyche someone out. Unfortunately for me and our team, I was psyche-out-able that day.
