Best friends Zev and Justin appeared on CBS’s The Talk to discuss their journey on The Amazing Race. They also were on hand to discuss Zev’s disability for Autism awareness week. How did they respond when asked who won this cycle? Keep reading to find out.
Zev and Justin arrived on The Talk set wearing their backpacks. While Justin took his off, Zev told host Julie Chen he preferred to leave his on, and sat on the couch wearing his backpack. Both Zev and Justin said that they loved being on the Amazing Race and Justin boasted that the second time was the best thing ever. When asked if they could tell who won the Unfinished Business cycle, Justin joked that he could tell, but would get into trouble. As for what they learned on the first race that gave them an edge on this one, Zev joked that they learned to hold onto their passports.
The Talk has been discussing Autism Awareness Month each day this month and Zev discussed his own Asperger’s. He admitted that the disability is a challenge at times when on the Amazing Race. He revealed that he simply tries to put it in the back of his head to have a shot at winning the million dollars. However, sometimes it is too much for him. Most recently, he freaked out in India because he had a difficult time with the surroundings of loud noises and massive crowds of people. Zev was originally going to do the road block in India, but Justin had to take it because the noise had gotten to Zev. Justin chimed in that the race has been great for Zev and he has seen a great change in how he handles and interacts with strangers.
The two have won two trips to Cancun and Costa Rica, but Justin said that they have not decided if they will go together or go separately and bring some lucky ladies with him.
Tune into The Amazing Race on Sundays at 8 pm to see if Zev and Justin survive another leg and continue to have a shot at the million dollar prize.
