Bickering exes discuss how they succeeded while shouting
As Tim Sweeney hit the mat on Sunday night's "Amazing Race" finale, a spontaneous cheer broke out. "Tim! Tim! Tim!" the other Racers yelled.
Had Tim and partner Marie won "The Amazing Race"? No. Marie completed the Million Dollar Flour Drop Roadblock well behind eventual Race winner Amy of Jason & Amy, as she and Tim settled for second place and the split of two exotic trips won for topping different Legs.
The cheer that went up?
"I think that was in appreciation for what I had gone through in sorta managing Marie's outbursts and anxiety and yelling and screaming, being able to handle that stuff," Tim said in his "Amazing Race" exit interview.
Indeed, Tim won many fans throughout the season for his ability to handle Marie, though Marie was not without some fans, appreciators of her bluntness and competitiveness.
How long have Tim & Marie been like this?
How close did they come to imploding on the Race?
Is Marie still mad at Nicky & Kim for getting on a standby list ahead of her?
And what was the showmance that we somehow never spotted during the season?
