okay so, aside from the fact that I’m only watching this season of The Amazing Race because of these two (I might continue to watch now though, this show is fucking amazing), THIS is why I’m rooting for Burnie and Ashley.
he doesn’t get mad that she can’t keep going, doesn’t try to convince her to try again. he just looks at her, sees that it would be detrimental to her health to continue with this challenge, and immediately makes the decision to switch.

they’re endlessly supportive and encouraging and kind, and this is the kind of relationship I want
