They may not have crossed the finish-line first on the Amazing Race, but gay couple Alex Ali and Lynn Warren could potentially be this season's big winners.

The boys from Hollywood, eliminated on last week's episode, quickly became fan favourites (therefore hot-properties for TV executives) on Race 7.

They are flamboyant, hilarious, compassionate and all-around good TV -- all traits that will likely lead to their own show or, at the very least, a turn on an all-star version of the world-wide race.

"There are whispers and chats about an all-star race for the 10th season. We would love to be a part of something like that," says Lynn.

Lynn and Alex, who are both TV producers, have pitched a show about gay couples living in different cultures to several networks including MTV's new gay network Logo.

"People from the TV industry have also approached us about other projects -- we would love to have our own talk show or reality show," says Alex, adding don't expect to see them soon because "CBS owns us for a year."

Fans can tune-in to see the duo on the May 10 finale.

Although they now know how it ends, Lynn and Alex say after leaving the show they had only one wish -- please don't let Boston Rob and "Amberexia" (Survivors Rob and Amber) win.

"They were literally hand-held to the mat the entire time," says Alex, adding he and Lynn were not invited to Rob and Amber's April 16 wedding which will air May 24 on CBS. "Rob is very manipulative -- he manipulated Amber into giving him half her $1 million. Can you say prenumpt, prenumpt, prenumpt?"

So who do they want to see cross the finish-line first? Meredith and Gretchen (because it would be a shock) or Uchenna and Joyce, they say.

"We wanted them to win so they could have a child. That is something we bonded with them over -- we both went on the race so we could win enough money to adopt a baby," says Lynn, who with Alex were eliminated after a cabbie drove them to the wrong pit-stop.

But, with the bad comes the good and the future is certainly looking good -- aside from their almost certain future in TV, the couple is looking at adopting and maybe taking a trip north.

"We want to come to Canada," says Lynn. "We are considering coming there to get married."

Now that's a wedding that should be on TV.
