Dave, you had to drop out of Season 22 of "Amazing Race" after rupturing your Achilles tendon. How’s that feeling?

Dave • I’m doing good. I feel good.

Dave, you had prostate cancer. And, Connor, you had testicular cancer. How’s your health today?

Connor • Couldn’t be better. I go in every six months for check-ups and, so far, I’m clear and good to go. So I feel like I’m going to stay on that trajectory.

Dave • We feel really lucky and blessed.

What are you going to do with the prize money?

Dave • Spend it!

Connor • I plan on giving some to cancer research and saving and investing the rest. There’s really nothing I need right now.

Dave • Connor’s in college. What does a college kid need?

Dave • Well, (I) agreed to pay that.

Connor, has TV fame affected your social life?

Connor • I have a girlfriend. I’m off the market. I’ve had a few people ask me via Twitter, but that’s the answer.

Dave • I’m not sure how many 15- to 25-year-old women there are on his Twitter account, but I think it’s, like, 5,000.

If asked, would you run "The Amazing Race" again?

Connor • Yes, I would do it in a heartbeat.

Dave • Honestly, I’d have second thoughts. They asked us at the end (of the ‘Race’), and I told them, ‘No way.’ It was 3:30 in the morning, we were cold, tired, hungry. We just won, which was exhilarating, but I thought, ‘There’s no way I would ever do this again.’

But now, having watched it last night, I think, ‘Oh yeah, I can’t wait to go back and do it again!’
