I was disappointed to read the comments of "Fabulous Beekman Boys" Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge when they were asked about why their romance was undercover on The Amazing Race. They said, in a Facebook posting:
"Of the five legs shown thus far, four have been in Muslim countries and homosexuality is illegal in every country we’d visited or passed through. Since we are guests in these countries, we chose to not embrace or kiss for practical and respectful reasons.
"We were literally relying on the kindness of strangers and cab drivers and challenging their beliefs would not have been strategically smart nor neighborly. To be completely fair, perhaps many of the great people we met along the way wouldn’t have had any issues with our relationship. But unfortunately, we didn’t have the time to get to know them better personally."
I totally understand the fact that they're in a competition to win money. In that regard, it is wise and cunning to conceal their homosexuality in countries or in any situations in which it might not benefit them.
