“Chippendales: The Show”

Hometown: New Britain, Conn.

Age: 28

Grew up in Jefferson, Maine. … Moved to Las Vegas during his sophomore year in high school. … Graduated from Valley High School and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (bachelor’s degree in business management). … Has been a Chippendale since 2007, debuting on the company’s European tour. … With friend and fellow Chippendale Jaymes Vaughan, finished in second place on “The Amazing Race.” … Also a musician and vocalist whose progressive metal band, My Name Engraved, has released two albums and two music videos.

■ On Team Chippendales becoming an “Amazing Race” audience favorite:

“It’s so awesome. Kids 7, 10, 12 years old are, like, ‘You guys did such a good job. You guys were so polite.’ Parents say, ‘My kids loved to watch you.’ We never expected to get that kind of response, especially from young kids.”

■ On using the magic words:

“That’s just who we are. When you’re in someone else’s country, you make an effort to learn to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’ They appreciate the effort. It doesn’t matter if you’re perfect or not.”
