Amazing Race nutjob Jonathan Baker is speaking out about last Wednesday's episode, in which he was seen verbally and physically attacking his wife Victoria as Phil Keoghan and Co. looked on. In a rambling (and grammatically imperfect) message posted on the couple's website, Jonathan blamed his chronic tantrums on a combination of stress and drugs. "I do not abuse Victoria," he maintained. "What you see is a heightened version of stress and obsession, mixed with medication for a sickness called Sarcoidosis. What started as a publicity stunt turned into an obsession to... be first at any cost. Victoria and I are working on our relationship to better our self and learn from our mistakes." Added Victoria (or at least we think it was Victoria): "Don't worry, I am fine. It's a TV show and not a true reflection of our relationship. We both overreacted." Is someone gonna help me stage this intervention, or am I gonna have to do it myself?!?
