Mika Combs and Canaan Smith were booted from The Amazing Race this past Sunday (Oct. 25) after Combs refused to go down a six-story, shark-infested water slide in Dubai.
Combs suffers from an intense fear of both heights and water, so the slide was her worst nightmare.
It paralyzed her with panic, and though Smith was ticked off at the time, he empathizes with his girlfriends phobia.
Smith wouldve reacted similarly had they been challenged to any task involving snakes, since even the tiniest garden snake freaks him out.
Despite their Dubai debacle, the Nashville songwriters are singing a happy tune.
They say the show inspired several love songs about their relationship that could someday end up on an album.
They may also pen sillier ditties about the race and Combs hatred of water slides.
The Amazing Race airs Sundays on CBS.
