The duos comeuppance occurred Sunday (Mar. 11) and Rob admits they wont do another race because its not competitive enough for them.
Says Mariano: I love competing, but theres a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff the audience doesnt see. Too much of the game relies on a luck element and thats frustrating.
Mariano says he prefers the competitive nature of his first reality show, Survivor, because its more grueling and you can manipulate and win people over to score the prize.
As he puts it, Going into Amazing Race the first time around I was like If theyre gonna beat me thats OK, but at least they cant vote me off like on Survivor.
Mariano also believes winning Survivor is a bigger accomplishment because not only do you have to endure sleep deprivation like on Race, but you are also dealing with intense hunger and bug bites.
