The Amazing Race Australia 2: Teams

Troy twins

Seven have today announced the eleven new teams of two who will be competing on its upcoming second season of hit 2011 reality television debutante, The Amazing Race Australia.

These teams are:

ADAM & DANE,QLD/NSW: Cousins

These fun-loving cousins grew up together in Tweed Heads and are determined to make their mark as the first indigenous team in the Race.

 

JAMES & SARAH, VIC: Dating

The 9-year age difference between James, 23, and Sarah, 32, is something their friends and family sometimes find hard to overlook.

JOSEPH & GRACE, NSW: Brother & Sister

Sydney siblings Joseph and Grace still live together under the same roof, but these days they rarely spend much time together.

KYM & DONNA, QLD: Engaged

Describing themselves as a ‘couple of old knuckleheads in love’, recently engaged Kym and Donna have only been together for just over a year and are still finding it hard to keep their hands off each other.

LUCY & EMILIA, NSW: Sisters

Larger-than-life Sydney sisters with a strong Italian heritage, Lucy and Emilia do everything together.

MICHELLE & JO, NSW: Cheerleader twins

They may be bubbly, blonde cheerleaders, but these identical twins from Sydney are out to prove there’s more to them than meets the eye.

PAUL & STEVE, VIC: Workmates

These workmates from Victoria spend their days together and share a ruthless competitive edge, but that’s where the similarities end.

ROSS & TARRYN, VIC: Father & Daughter

This father and daughter duo from Melbourne have experienced their share of sporting triumph, but will their competitive instincts be enough to help them win The Amazing Race Australia?

SHANE & ANDREW, VIC: Cops

These policemen from Melbourne may have very serious jobs as crime scene officers, but they love nothing more than having a laugh.

STICKY & SAM, TAS: Flatmates

Geoff, or ‘Sticky’ to his mates, and Sam met at school in Launceston 12 years ago and have been best friends ever since.

SUE & TERESA, WA: Hairdressers

These hairdressers from Geraldton, Western Australia, think they may become the Earth mothers of the Race.

Seven also promised a ‘bigger’ race, with contestants travelling more than 65,000km over 4 continents. Two new twists will also enter the game- Must Vote U-Turns and the controversial Salvage Pass, which will shake up the first leg of the race.

The Amazing Race Australia will air on Seven soon.
