'The Amazing Race' gay brothers team kinda from Fort Worth talk up God and competition

CBS posted this vid of brothers Sam and Dan McMillen yesterday. They talk about growing up gay and Christian and then get sassy about the rest of the players on this season of The Amazing Race. The bros also talked to the Star-Telegram last week about coming out on national TV.

We dug that they were “from Fort Worth” but the Texas connection is no more. Sam finished his studies at TCU this spring and has recently moved back to Missouri.

New season of 'Amazing Race' to feature gay brothers, including one from Fort Worth

The new season of CBS’ “Amazing Race” will feature a pair of gay brothers, one of whom is from Fort Worth. Dan, 21, and Sam McMillen, 23, are natives of Liberty, Mo., but CBS says Sam currently resides in Cowtown, and reports indicate that he may be studying medicine at Texas Christian University. Sam and I have one mutual friend on Facebook, campus LGBT leader Skye Newkirk (and he has a whopping total of 1,561). It will be interesting to see how his appearance on the show is received at conservative TCU. According to their bio on the Amazing Race Web site, “Sam and Dan will tell you that their relationship did not truly start until last summer when they both came out and told each other that they were gay.” Read the full bio after the jump. Below is a video interview with Dan and Sam.
