TAR 21 Chippendales: Behind the Scenes Video

Are you a fan of Jaymes and James?

TAR 21 Chippendales: Behind the Scenes Video

At the beginning of the season I wasn’t sure I was going to like The Amazing Race 21‘s Jaymes and James, the Chippendale dancers with dashingly good looks, but as the season progresses I’m finding that I really like their enthusiasm and their personalities.

Typically male dancers tend to be douchy, arrogant and narcissistic, but not these two. They actually seem pretty grounded and approachable. I don’t sense an attitude of “we are so HOT right now” (Zoolander reference) as I had anticipated. Not only are these two eye candy, they’re friendly – and funny.

Jaymes is the one who does most of the talking on the show while James pretty much agrees with everything he says. These two have great chemistry on Amazing Race though, and I hope they go far.

In this behind the scenes look at Jaymes and James after arriving in Dhaka, Bangladesh, the Chippendales take in all the chaos while realizing how naked they feel without the conveniences of the internet while traveling.

Are you a fan of Chippendales Jaymes & James? Let us know in the comment section and you will be entered to WIN a Big Brother jury house painting of a clown by Brendon Villegas!

    The Chippendales are such a great team! They help the others, are athletic, smart and are stand up guys. Hope to see them go far in the Race!

    I was thinking the same thing as you at the beginning. I was almost certain they were going to be complete idiots but they grew on me. They seem really genuine and very positive about everything. Those bodies don’t hurt to look at either :)

    I do like them… they are funny and fun to watch in more ways than one, LOL!

  • Kellie

    When I first seen the dancing duo I immediately thought oh great these two will be cocky and arrogant. But they are just the opposite, so enthusiastic, smart and enjoying every minute they are there. I hope they go far.

    Yes! I love these guys!! Actually saw them perform a couple months ago w/ Chipendales for a bachelorette party in Vegas. They’re certainly attractive guys, and now thru the show I see what great personalities they have! :) I hope they go far.

    James and Jaymes, the Chippendales dancers, are awesome. I’m cheering for them (as well as the twins – can’t lie).

  • KimD

    Yep LOVE them…have from day one. I haven’t seen any sign of any arrogance or cockiness…nice and refreshing.

  • Tko

    I really do want the painting but guessing I probably won’t win because I don’t really care for Jaymes and James. They do seem a little bit arrogant to me. Sorry.

  • Flixnicole

    I think Jaymes and James are having fun on The Race which is refreshing….the eye candy doesn’t hurt either!

  • Cheshire69

    I like James and Jaymes, they seem like good guys.. Longer, Stronger, Harder!!

    Some may think that James and Jaymes are friggin “chiptastic” but there no “Dynamic Duo” like say #Brenchel – The only way I wouldn’t want or favor the art work by Brendon Villegas was if you were offering a Non-Brenchel Prize alternative – Say a pic of “June ala Mud” drawn by “HBBC & Glitzy”.maybe. Prefacing with that since you state “MIGHT” win in the tweet #HandsOffSpicy HA HA

    I am yes, I want a gay couple to win. I hate to marginalize them like so, but it’s true. I do like how they seem to be having fun doing the show. That said, their smooth, shiny, hairless Chipp-esque bodies irritate me. I suppose my type of gay man is more hairy, less shiny and more flesh-like. #xox #mwuah #yesiamhashtagging

    That would be so awesome to have the clown painting…my sister was Daisy Clown for 20 years in Sarasota and Angel Clown in heaven now….and what lady would not like watching a pair of Chippendales?

    I like the jaymes and james! I think they are a good team and will go far because 1. they don’t seem to bicker like the other couples 2. they are physically strong and 3. they have good chemistry and work well together, forming the winning combination!

  • Javaughn Gomes

    Yess they are actually my favorite so far, they do have really good chemistry and have what it takes to make it really far and even win, their is something about them that gives off a really good vibe, they’re always so positive, and have been really likable this far out! (: – Guy who freaked out when shane and dani were on super pass lol

        And it would really mean so much to me if i won this, i haven’t had a chance to get anything big brother related and i’m about a huge fan of everyone on BB, i truly look up to them sooo much and this would literally mean the world to me, i would definitely get this framed and then hang it up lol (:

  • Mstar

    The two James (Jaymes) are my absolute fav this season. Such friendly men and so kind to the people in the other countries. Cute too!

  • http://www.facebook.com/johnnie.betts Johnnie Betts

    These guys are AWESOME! They have the best attitudes and are really having fun and thus are fun to watch!!!

  • Liddlekiddle1

    I did until they showed their true colors tonight
    Wait until the three teams have to turn on each other

  • Paul

    Jaymes and James are gay or I’ll kiss your foot. They make a nice looking couple though.

  • SpecialEFX

    Something tells me Jaymes is a poofta and James is his bi-curious sidekick.

  • Paul

    I mean a closeted gay couple. I guess it has to be that way being that they entertain women when they are working..

  • Kelli

    I really like James & Jaymes. They’re my favorite & I do hope they win.

  • Nuttybuddying

    wanted the chippendales to win, but was sorta pleased with the ironic outcome of the race.

    Jaymes and James are also my favourite out of the 11 teams of The Amazing Race Season 21.
