TAR15: Ericka Dunlap & Brian Kleinschmidt - Married
« on: September 09, 2009, 07:53:31 AM »
Ericka and Brian
Biography
Ericka Dunlap (27); Brian Kleinschmidt (27)
Hometown: Nashville, Tenn.
Occupation: Ericka (Entertainer/Miss America 2004) / Brian (Marketing Tour Manager)
Relationship: Married

Ericka and Brian Kleinschmidt are excited to be the first married interracial team on The Amazing Race.  They have a singular game plan in mind — to win over the hearts and minds of The Amazing Race audience by proving that true love is color blind. They compare their relationship to the Yin-Yang symbol, which represents the philosophy of two total opposites coming together as one to accomplish a common goal.    

Ericka and Brian met at a leadership seminar at the University of Central Florida nine years ago, and it was love at first sight for Brian. Ericka, on the other hand, played hard to get for the next five years….but Brian's persistence finally paid off as the couple shared wedding vows over two years ago.

Ericka has lived a very structured, prim and proper life but plans to embrace her true self and expose a vulnerable side of her life beyond Miss America while racing around the world.  Her life's goal is to become a country music recording artist.

Brian is an all-American guy who contends that nice guys do not always have to finish last.  He has enjoyed life as a standout athlete, singer, actor, and loyal friend. The opportunity to extensively tour the U.S. with his job as a sports and entertainment marketing manager has further boosted Brian's confidence and travel expertise.

Though some may see Brian and Ericka as total opposites, they believe that their differences are actually their greatest strength and will propel them around the world all the way towards the finish line.

Their names are one thing, but it's what they stand for in this race; I have never seen a more perfect couple!  :hearts: :jumpy: :hearts:

I can't wait to see this team in action! They look sooooooooo sweet together and they certainly look like they have the smarts to propel them all the way to the finish line. I think they'll work really well together, they'll be an interesting team to watch.

Not at all surprised that CBS got their facts mixed up...in fact I'm pretty sure there have been more interracial teams previously that we are not remembering.

They look truly in love with each other, though; I can't wait to watch them go far in the race. :hearts:

I think only the "first female team to win a US edition" title is left. :funny: But I'll save that for another topic. :funny:

I like them after watching the vids, considering I had doubts about this at first. :wohoo:

Great time and I can't wait to see them in action. They seem to really feed off each other and I hope Erika's mom continues to be a relationship with Brian. He seems like a good guy.
