Nick & Starr
Brother and Sister
New York, NY
Former NFL Cheerleader
Fort Worth, TX
This brother/sister team will stop at nothing to win the Race. Both are extremely driven and competitive, especially with one another. They admit to being over-zealous when a prize is involved â€“ even if itâ€™s only bragging rights. Theyâ€™re excited to use this to their advantage on the Race.
Nick and Starr could practically be twins, and consider each other best friends, even though they rarely see each other due to distance. They hope to strengthen their relationship on this adventure, but do worry that since they havenâ€™t spent much time together in several years that they could get on one anotherâ€™s nerves. After all, in high-school they were bitter enemies.
Nick claims that the biggest difference between them is that Starr can be a bit reckless â€“ she leaps into a situation without thinking about the repercussions – while Nick thinks everything through before acting. Starr claims that she is simply more spontaneous and figures everything will work out in the end.
Nick and Starr have both accomplished their life-long dreams. Nick performs on the New York stage in an Off-Broadway musical called The Fantasticks, while Starr was a cheerleader for the Dallas Cowboys for the past three seasons.
Theyâ€™re anxious to bring a new approach to the game and are motivated to strengthen their relationship. They believe that their charisma, wit and relentless spirit will make for a dangerous combination.
