Goat Farming Gay Couple Wins Amazing Race 21

yay for goat farming gay couples!!!

Will couple Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge give up goat farming now that they're millionaires? That's the big question now that the guys won the 21st season of CBS's The Amazing Race.

Purcell and Ridge previously starred in their own reality show for Discovery's Channel Green, called The Fabulous Beekman Boys. But after that show was canceled after two seasons, the couple snagged a role on the latest Amazing Race. Purcell, 43, and Ridge, 38, won the reality show's last challenge at the UN headquarters in New York, netting themselves a cool million (the episode aired Monday night). Purcell has also contributed to many publications, including The Advocate.

1. I know absolutely nothing

about any of those shows.

But the title of the post made me smile, so thanks for that!

3. This was so cool, because the Beekman boys

were such underdogs throughout the race.

I love it that they won.

I liked all three of the final teams, but it is always nice to see an underdog take it.

I don't think they will give up their farm. They were talking about getting their place debt free, and the one who works in the city being able to stay on the farm now. I love to see people who are not wealthy get rich, even if it is not me! Yay!

12. Now the only question left...will Lance Bass try and break up this couple also?

Remember that gay couple that won a few years back? One dumped the other for Lance.

7. I liked the Twinnies until last night, when

they kept going on about "the evil Gays" - it was a 'joke' that wasn't funny the first time they quipped it, let alone the four or five subsequent times they said it; sort of seemed like they were milking it for all the negative karmic mileage they could get from it, and I didn't appreciate that, so was glad to see them knocked out in 4th place.

I was delighted to see the Gays win, and wouldn't be surprised if they help the Chippendale with the sick father, in light of their surfeit of generosity.

8. Those 2 Chippendales are on a billboard here in Vegas...

I didn't realize they were real Chippendales...I assumed it was just the local Chippendales trying for some publicity.

16. they got good at the right time

They had the one bad leg but otherwise ran a pretty decent race and had back to back to back really good legs at just the right time.

18. Their place is just

down the road from me by about 15 minutes. In fact, when the previous owner was restoring the old mansion, a dear friend of mine was the caretaker and planted a huge perennial garden from plants at my then-greenhouse business. Have met the guys numerous times and they along with other gay transplants from The City have sparked a restoration of the village of Sharon Springs.

19. Okay, wow, now I get it. The older one

kept complaining about the commute back and forth from the city; looking at Google maps and knowing a bit about getting around the metro area, that commute would kill me, too.

That area is just gorgeous.

20. It's about a 3 and 1/2 hr drive to NYC.

It is gorgeous here. I grew up in NE Ohio and when my new love and I came to visit his parents in Richmondville, it was night and I thought we were just going uphill and uphill. The next morning I went outside and was just totally floored by the natural beauty an remarked that I could live the rest of my life here. That was back in 1979 and the following May Day (1980) we moved here from Rochester. My love died 6 years ago and we had already had our cemetery plot and now, the stone is there too. I will live the rest of my life here. This is home. The people are my family.

21. I watched a few episodes at a friends and thought they were terrific

I thought they portrayed to the public that lgbt couples are just the same as other couple.
