urged Jet and Dave to apply for THE
AMAZING RACE CANADA; they are the life of the party, no matter where they
go. They met in high school when Jet started dating one of Dave’s friends, and
when Jet and the girl parted, the two remained friends. Since then the
inseparable pair have travelled the world together and have been through thick
and thin as best buddies.
Physically they are a lethal combination; Jet is a two-time Men’s National Physique Champion, while Dave is a National Champion in Cheerleading. They also never miss an opportunity to joke around and know that they can be perceived as goofy – which they plan to use to their advantage. “In addition to our charm and good looks, we’re both actually quite intelligent,” says Jet. “We are as smart, if not smarter than the dolphin,” adds Dave.
Of The Race the two agree, “We are excited to get to explore our great country that most Canadians never get the chance to see.”
Motto: “We’re like icebergs...10% above water, 90% below!”
How will they plan to win the Race: “Be ourselves and win...in a strategic manner.”
Number one roadblock as team: “Getting along when things don’t go our way, we’re both control freaks.”
