‘Amazing Race’ Losers Can’t Get Lucky

COLUMBIA, S.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One pair of reality rejects just couldn’t get lucky.

Boyfriend/girlfriend team Jennifer Hopka and Preston McCarmy got booted from The Amazing Race this past Monday (Feb. 16), and they blame their inability to get lucky on their early loss.

Hopka says, “We didn’t realize how much the race is based on luck. You can be taken out in a split second because of it. We had bad luck with taxis and the language barrier [in Europe].”

Adds McCarmy: “It was very frustrating. We just weren’t lucky.”

The team did get lucky in their relationship thanks to the show, however.

The couple, who were on the brink of breaking up, have decided to stick it out and even relocated to the same city to make it work.

Hopka explains, “The race is very hard and stressful on a relationship and can tear you apart. That’s why we wanted to do it, and it made us stronger.”

The Amazing Race airs Sundays on CBS.
