David Hernandez On Amazing Race Season 34
David Hernandez and Aubrey Ares signed up for Amazing Race season 34 never knowing if they would actually be selected as the cast members. Producers reached out to them on Instagram, they went through the audition process, and they announced that they didn’t make it to the final cut. Instead, they were kept as alternates. Before the premiere of the show, David and Aubrey spoke to US Weekly, “We went through so much work. We went through so many auditions. It was very intense”.
Aubrey added, “And nerve-wracking because you’re literally sitting in front of all these CBS producers … but come to find out, we actually didn’t make the final cast, but they asked us if we would like to be alternates.”
David then shared that being held as an alternate, Aubrey had lost her interest to participate. She told David, “No, I don’t want anything to do with it anymore. We didn’t make it. It’s over.” But, fate took its hand and they got a call when they were on their way out of town while in traffic.
They hadn’t prepared as they were sure they won’t be racing so in just a matter of a few hours they had to travel to Munich, Germany so they make their stop at Target to pick up last-minute things. Aubrey explained, “We didn’t have a watch. We didn’t have certain things because I started sending things back since we weren’t going on the show.” Then phone calls started flooding in one after another.
Once they were in Munich, “that’s when we actually had like a moment to process everything that was going on because we were in the car, she was on a phone call after phone call after phone call,” David tells Us Weekly. “We just throw everything in our bags. We get in the car, we get to the hotel We still have to get checked by security. And then once all of that was finally done, we were like, ‘What just happened?’” Aubrey adds, “We sat on the bed. We were like, ‘Holy crap. We’re on The Amazing Race.’”
The couple believes alternate as an advantage “because we were automatically the underdogs.” Aubrey told the outlet, “We had to come in and kind of catch up throughout the entire process. So that was definitely one of our strategies through the show.”
Aubrey Ares And David Hernandez’s Relationship
David Hernandez and Aubrey Ares shared a passion for dance. It was the dance that brought David to the door of the dance studio that Aubrey ran as he had signed up for dance class at Aubrey’s studio. This happened six years ago and the rest is history. Fast forward to September 2022, David proposed Aubrey in Central Park in New York City.
David also had a cameraman on standby to capture that moment which they posted on their respective socials. He did it while Marry Me by Train was being covered by a singer. The pair jointly made their engagement “IG official”. They captioned the engagement post, “FOREVER & EVER. I love you, @david_vader6! Shocked was an understatement!!!!”
If you scroll through their social media pages, though they made relatively limited posts, most of them are about each other. Like in August 2020, David dedicated a post to his partner writing, “I’ll stop loving you when Tom catches Jerry.” On her birthday in 2021, David again posted, “Feliz Cumpleaños Hermosa! You make me the happiest man in the world. Cheers to many more birthdays together. I love you ❤️ Thank you, @michaelbuble for making this a memorable birthday for @fulloutaubs. #29 #felizcumpleaños #perfectgirl #perfectcouple #love #perfectdate #92521 #perfectnight”
Aubrey also doesn’t hold back from showing off her love for David. On Valentine’s Day 2022, Aubrey took to her Instagram and wrote, “We don’t need one day out of the year to tell each other how much we LOVE each other… We have daily (hourly) reminders ❤️ (lol if you know us, you understand the accuracy) I’m grateful for our journey together! It keeps getting better & better! Happy Valentine’s day, @david_vader6.”
Furthermore, Amazing Race, which is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has made their bond even stronger. Aubrey shared that they were tested to points that they had never been tested before. She explained: “We were under stress together. I have stress at my job. He has stress at his job, but we’ve never had to work through stressful times together. And us being three years into our relationship, we’re at that point in our relationship where it’s like, ‘OK, are we ready for the next step? Are we ready to get married and start a family together?’ … I think the race definitely grew us stronger. We came back to understand each other better. And I think more in love.”
