Dad Looks Like A Wimp

Wednesday, February 17, 2010 17:21 GMT

ARLINGTON, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One dad may never live down the time he looked like a wimp on national TV.

Married couple Dana and Adrian Davis were the first team eliminated from The Amazing Race 16 this past Sunday (Feb. 14) after Adrian couldn’t scale a cable suspended in mid-air in Valparaiso, Chile.

The duo admit Dana should’ve done the challenge all along. Maybe then, Adrian wouldn’t have to hear constant teasing from their kids about how he screwed up on the show.

Adrian explains, “Our kids rode me like a horse! It’s the first time they’ve seen their dad get scared like that.”

When he’s not trembling from a fear of heights, Adrian says he’s usually the family hero who kills all the bugs in the house.

In their heads, their teenagers had “already spent the $1 million” dollar prize their parents were supposed to bring home, so the taunting was only natural.

Amazing Race airs Sundays on CBS.
