The Amazing Race Australia – Chris and Anastasia Splitsville

In non-surprising news dating Amazing Race Australia couple Chris Pselletes and Anastasia Drimousis have split. The couple have been seen fighting on screen. Well actually Chris has been seen yelling at Anastasia in a rather sexist way.

The Daily Telegraph reports they split two weeks ago.

The articles says:

Yesterday Drimousis denied reports they had gone their separate ways before the Seven series started, insisting they had called it quits just two weeks ago. It had been claimed Seven had tried to keep the lid on their relationship status in a bid to boost ratings.

“We decided to not continue,” Drimousis said. “It has nothing to do with the show, we just decided to sort of not be together.”

She said the pair, both from Sydney, met at university three years ago and had always had a tumultuous relationship – which hit boiling point on the adventure reality series.

Drimousis said she felt sorry for her former man, who became the show’s villain for his aggressive outbursts. “In a way the show pulled us closer together as we had to go through all the public scrutiny.

“I felt like I needed to defend him and stick up for him.”

People were quick to chastise Pselletes for his comments toward his long-suffering girlfriend which included: “Daddy never spanked you when he should have”.

“We have all been laughing at that one because it is kind of true. Chris and Dad have a good relationship and my dad has never hit me, not even a smack on the bum,” Drimousis said.

The brunette said she was still on speaking terms with Pselletes and admitted she was as fiery as him.

“My mum told me not to embarrass her on TV so I never said anything back to him because I was afraid I was going to swear.

“The more silent I got the angrier Chris would be. All my friends were quite shocked I wasn’t fighting back as they know what I am like in normal life.”

Unfortunately she doesn’t reveal who dumped who. I wonder after his time on the show whether Chris will have trouble finding another girl. I suspect not, as girls love dickheads.
