BYUtv: What is your game strategy?
DeShae: Don't lose.
Chris: Don't lose, yeah. Our game strategy is to keep our secrets. We work really well together. I am the calm to her crazy. She's very task-oriented, focused, and I'm more go with the flow, so I think it will work out very well.
BYUtv: What is your biggest strength?
DeShae: The fact that we're opposites, so I may have a plan, but he'll help me execute it, so I think that will work. We complement each other really well.
BYUtv: What is your biggest weakness?
Chris: Our biggest weakness would be being in the car for very long hours together. She's not a fan of my driving, which doesn't really matter. She'll just close her eyes and we'll make it through.

DeShae: Ooo, Seattle, Chicago, Charleston?

DeShae: Yeah. Any of those.

DeShae: Our team motto is don't lose.
Chris: Don't lose.
BYUtv: What is one thing you could never live without?
DeShae: My sweet husband. No, I'm just kidding—it's my phone. It's my phone.
Chris: Yeah. Mine's coffee. And my wife, I guess.
BYUtv: If you win, how will you spend the $50,000 grand prize?
