The relationship between Chris and Heather is one of the more heated conflicts between a host and a contestant; some of it is a result of their clashing egos. On several occasions, Chris seems to show disapproval towards some of Heather's measures for victory and for taking control of the show, yet at the same time, he seems to help her out in slight ways in order to keep her in the competition, because of her strength as an antagonist. Likewise, Heather shows her hatred of Chris's bossy and controlling attitude on the show and particularly dislikes the fact that she is singled out by him.
