How many total followers do you have across all platforms? 424,000
Hometown: Brooklyn, N.Y. Connection to your teammate: Fianc้e
Current occupation: Professional dancer, choreographer and instructor.
Describe what you do: I perform as a professional commercial dancer in music videos, stage shows, TV and movies. I also teach weekly dance classes in Los Angeles and master classes all over the world.
3 words to describe you: Loyal, sarcastic and honest.
Favorite hobbies: Reading, writing, traveling and watching horror movies.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I am most proud of all the countries I have visited! When I was younger, travel didn't seem like a real possibility and I am really proud that I have made that part of my life.
What scares you most about traveling? Nothing really scares me about travel! I don't love the idea of becoming ill in a foreign country. I got sick in China once and that wasn’t my favorite experience.
What excites you most about traveling? I love everything about travel, seeing new places and meeting new people is so thrilling to me. It’s so cool to see these places I've obsessed over in the pages of travel magazines. There's nothing like being in a new place and experiencing a new culture- it’s one of the greatest things in life.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We are both so stubborn and always like to be in control. We will definitely find ourselves in a few power struggles.
Pet peeve about your teammate: He makes this awful gulping sound when he drinks water lol.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Tokyo, Japan is high on my list! I have always heard great things about the city and I know there are a lot of great dancers there!
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope that Matt and I can learn to work together better and really prove what an incredible team we can be together. I also have a major issue letting go of control, so I hope that being out of my comfort zone while racing will help me to get over that and be more comfortable to not be in control of every situation.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Decision making, we're both leaders.
Pet peeve about your teammate: She's quick to lose her temper.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Africa. I've never been.

These two are amazing choreographers, I've seen their videos from time to time and they're really good. They're also non vloggers, which should make them interesting, because I have no idea how they are as personalities, but I'm hoping for the best.

Rooting for them!

THEY ARE PERFECT
I just watched their announcement video and then quickly delved into their several other choreography videos. They're such amazing dancers :o I'm a dancer myself, just a completely different style and I'm amazed by how good they are.

I thought Ernest & Jin were amazing to have on the show. Well, these are about 5 times better and I really hope they make it to the end!! They're personalities will be awesome & fun, I'm pretty sure about that. :luvya:

This team showed so much potential on the 1st leg, and they don't have an edit similar to Misti & Jim's or Justin & Diana's when they arrived 1st.

Could they fall for the 9th place curse, or will we see these 2 race far? ???

Before the Season started I kinda forgot these 2 were even racing.  They seemed like the most invisible team pre-race, for me anyway, but I LOVE them now.  They remind me of Nick & Vicky slightly.  Dunno why though? ???
Wishlist for Next Returnee Season:
Kym & Alli - Misti & Jim - Mike & Rochelle - Hayley & Blair - Ernest & Jin - Cindy & Rick - Tiffany & Krista
 - Scott & Blair - Mike & Liz

in a way, they do. Nick & Vicki both had big characters and they were really cool & laid back (well, despite end-race for Nick :funny:). I see similar qualities in Matt & Dana, except they're more race-savvy. Both of these teams have got some cool, "hip hop" vibe to them. :tup:
