(1/14) > >>

Amanda Blackledge (23); Kris Klicka (24)
Hometown: San Diego, Calif.
Occupation: Amanda (Student); Kris (Sales Representative)
Relationship: Dating

This young couple who met more than three years ago hopes to spend the rest of their lives together, but before taking their relationship to the next level they are looking forward to sharing this experience together. Their favorite shared memory is falling in love with each other over bonfires at the beach accompanied by wine and s’mores. They plan on creating many more memories together on the Race and are hoping to fall in love all over again.

Amanda is a communications student at Cal State San Marcos, but is working at a tanning salon until she graduates. She describes herself as outgoing, talkative and generous. When asked what her biggest pet peeve about her teammate is Amanda says that Kris occasionally doesn’t seem interested when she is talking to him.

Kris, who was once almost attacked by a bear in Alaska, enjoys hunting, fishing and snow boarding. He currently works as a sales representative for a communications company. He has not had the opportunity to travel much outside of the United States and looks forward to the Race as a chance to explore other cultures and compete against the game's best. He hopes the other Teams are as hungry to win as he is.

Amanda and Kris both have a tendency to be stubborn when it comes to a disagreement, but they realize they must be more open to ideas and solutions from one another in order to propel their team into winning the one million dollars. They feel this is a perfect opportunity to work on their shortcomings and any other communication issues they have. Amanda and Kris have so much in common that they complete each others sentences. One shared characteristic is the ability to make friends wherever they go, which can come in handy when racing around the globe.

I thought, while an all-female team! Then i clicked their bio and was shocked that Kris was a guy. But nevermind! :funny:

Anyway, they had a really likable factor for me. I'm loving them already!! ;D

Yes, no, maybe. This feels like a team that is too busy working on their relationship to win the race. They look more than capable physically, and their professions suggest they wont be caught up by too many dumb mistakes. Kris is a definite outdoors type, and that can only work to the teams advantage. Iím putting these guys just shy of the final three.


Oh they are SO adorable! I love how he looks at her, they give me the BEST kind of couple vibe! I think they are right, their youth and energy will help them along. Definitely looking forward to more from them! :hearts:

I definitely get a MoJo and Jen/Nathan vibe  :hearts:
