An Alabama couple made their television debut on Wednesday night by sliding through mud, doing the robot and traveling to Tokyo during the season premiere of "The Amazing Race."
C.J. Harris and Lebya Simpson, of Tuskegee, are one of 11 couples that will participate in season 26 of the CBS reality competition, which sends teams on a race all over the world in hopes of winning a million bucks.
Harris, 26, works in information technology while Simpson, 25, is a support assistant at the VA Medical Center. They've been dating for 10 years, and Simpson made it pretty clear she's hoping their participation on the show will open a discussion about marriage. Harris, on his part, seems a bit hesitant.
"Because we have been together for so long and know each other very well, I think it is time for us to get married," Simpson said in her bio. "We are at the stage in our relationship where that is the natural next step. He is already an important part of my family and vice versa.
I just do not know what is holding him back. I constantly ask him when he's gonna propose and the answer is always "when the Lord tells me to." My hope is that from participating in and winning "The Amazing Race," he finally sees that there is no better life partner than ME!!"
While the teams are typically a mix of family duos, couples and friends, this season's big twist is that six of the pairs are made up of dating couples looking to test their relationship and five of the teams are blind dates set up by "The Amazing Race" producers.
For Harris and Simpson, the first leg of the race proved to be a little tricky after things got off to a rough start. During the opening challenge, which was essentially a mud obstacle course, the Tuskegee natives didn't finish in the top four and were forced to take a later flight.
Once in Tokyo, the duo settled on doing a dance challenge that required learning a choreographed robot routine. While they arrived to the challenge late due to navigational issues and were one of the last couples to complete it, Harris and Simpson will live to see another leg of the race after landing the tenth, and final, spot in the competition.
"I feel like if we can make it through this race we can make it through anything," said Harris in his bio.
The next "The Amazing Race" episode will air on CBS at 7 p.m. on Friday.
