ABOUT STEPH AND KRISTEN

Steph and Kristen are former varsity softball athletes who have played at university and provincial levels, so it goes without saying that they’re tough, focused on winning, and work well as a team. This couple met years ago, but with Kristen on a scholarship in Pittsburgh and Steph in Detroit, it wasn’t until they reconnected after university that the sparks began to fly. At first, they were forced into a long distance relationship for over a year. It didn’t take long, however, for Kristen to persuade Steph to move to Toronto after she graduated from law school.

These two are competitive by nature and plan to use their athletic skills in the race. They can play as a team, but know it is just as imperative to sometimes step up to the plate alone and hit it out of the park.

Steph and Kristen hope to prove that two women can win "The Amazing Race Canada" and would use the prize money to invest in a property together. Steph would also pay off her law school debt and Kristen would use the financial freedom to discover her true passions and pursue them.

FUN FACTS

Motto: “She’s always right”
If you and your teammate were a pop duo, what would your name be? We’re Not Sisters
Walk on song: “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” – Starship
Team they most associate with from previous seasons: Natalie and Meaghan   
If you could be an animal what would you be?
Steph: Dog
Kristen: Dog

More questions from their profile:

Steph:
How did you train for the Race? -We kept up with our consistent workout schedule, re-watched Seasons 2 and 3 of ‘The Amazing Race Canada,’ tried running a few times with weighted backpacks and I learned how to drive stick!

What's the next big thing in your life you'd like to accomplish? - Win the ‘The Amazing Race Canada.’

Why did you choose this as your racing outfit? - We tried to pick clothes that are sporty, super comfortable, but also cute at the same time.

Kristen:
What’s one thing you wish you could bring on the Race? - A stylist to give me that 'I woke up like this' look every AM. I’m going to need all the help I can get.

What's the next big thing in your life you'd like to accomplish? - Win ‘The Amazing Race Canada.

How did you choose your team colour? - We don’t typically wear a ton of colour in our everyday lives, so we tried our best to pick up some colourful tops.

STEPH LECLAIR & KRISTEN MCKENZIE: “Dating” is an  Amazing Race Canada euphemism, but articling lawyer Steph and account executive Kristen have been living together in Toronto for a year and a half.

“We do say ‘dating,’ ‘going steady,’ ‘going out.’” Kristen says. I suggest dating implies showing up at the door with flowers.

“Well, I never got any flowers. What’s up with that?”

They knew each other as children in Toronto, but their relationship began when both were varsity softball athletes in Detroit and Pittsburgh respectively.

Weaknesses? “I’m nervous about a little bit about dancing,” Steph says. “And we’re nervous about directions.”

“I’m the navigator,” Kristen says.

“I think the map will be a challenge,” Steph adds. “Kristen gets motion sick, so she’ll be driving too.”

“We’ll see,” Kristen adds.

“Whatever happens, we’ll be bringing the enthusiasm.”

These two are too strong lol. I think its just a matter of time before they start winning legs. I like their strategy with the EP, but it could come back to bite them (especially if other teams see them using it).

Even then, what is stopping Frankie and Amy from telling the other teams?

They would have a target on their back until they played their Express Pass. If I were them I would keep quiet, unless it was late in the race.

Me too. They have some really cute moments, and I still do love them like I do this cast, but they're essentially the "John Vito & Jill in the F5 of TAR3" or "Brandon & Nicole in the F6 of TAR5" of an amazing cast on a season where everyone left is top-tier.

On the contrary I really dislike both of those other teams :lol: But I get what you mean!
