Who were you expecting to be your toughest competitor? Did that hold true?
Brian: I expected Troy and Courtney to be our toughest and that did not hold up to be true. John and Andrea were our toughest competition.
Mandie: Courtney and Troy, but it did not hold true.
What stunt was the most challenging for you and why?
Brian: The first swimming stunt was the hardest because Mandy is a terrible swimmer.
Mandie: The swimming stunt, because I never never ever swim. Everyone else said that they swim on a regular basis and I just felt like they would be more competitive than I was because of that.
Did you have any phobias going into the competition?
Mandie: Holding my breath for long periods of time and eating roaches.
Other than winning, what was the best part about your Fear Factor experience?
Brian: Getting to do things you never get to do again, hanging off buildings, eating disgusting stuff.
Mandie: The friendships that were made, we all still keep in touch. And just being able to do those stunts because it was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I will probably never be able to do again.
What will you do with the $50,000?
Brian: Mandy and I are both getting cars.
Did having a partner push you harder or frustrate you because you had to depend on someone else to win?
Brian: It made me more nervous because I thought Mandy was going to screw something up. But she came through in the clutch.
Mandie: It pushed me harder because I did not want to let him down.
