High School Students Are ‘Amazing Race’ Rejects Biggest Critics

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Having the American public scrutinize your every move on The Amazing Race is hard, but not as hard as facing the critics at work.

That’s according to third place finishers Lyn Turk and Karlyn Harris who say their biggest critics were the one’s they have to see on a daily basis.

Turk, a high school math teacher, and Harris, a programming analyst, both say their co-workers were supportive although critical at times of their decisions.

Says Turk: “I teach high schoolers and everyone has an opinion.”

Although the kids grilled her weekly on her adventures and even questioned her rapping skills in one episode, she says they were all proud and supportive of her.

Harris says she was also bombarded at work with questions and comments and people trying to figure out if they’d won the million dollars.

As Harris puts it, “One co-worker was like, ‘Should I bring champagne or tissues [after the finale]?’ and I was like ‘Bring both’ because I don’t know what I’ll be in the mood for.”
