TEAM BIO

Instagram
Andrea: @andrea.croxen
Ebonie: @eb_finley

This energetic duo of best friends turned business partners met when they were 16 years old during a bridal fashion show. Both girls have BIG personalities – they are loud, strong-headed dreamers, and always live life to the fullest.

Growing tired of the industry pressures and standards of beauty, Andrea and Ebonie realized that modelling wasn’t for them and decided to embark on new opportunities. About a year ago, these entrepreneurial women decided to get together and start their own business – I Breathe Fitness. Looking for something that was more in tune with their values and principles, these friends decided to create their own opportunity that would add value to their lives and could also impact the lives of others. Andrea and Ebonie have always been very active and share a love for fitness and travel. Together, they decided to build a business around their passions that promoted healthy lifestyles and could help people along the way.

Approaching their 30th birthdays, the girls are determined to take a leap of faith and push themselves out of their comfort zone. Their drive and positive energy is what they think will help them edge out the competition on THE AMAZING RACE CANADA.

What a glam team, automatic faves.
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

ANDREA COXEN & EBONIE ROBERGE

The 29-year-old former models are best friends since age 15 – when they were in a shoot modeling bridal dresses together.

“The irony!” says Ebonie with a laugh.

“I remember us laughing a lot about it, but we were having fun,” says Andrea. “We’ve been sisters ever since that day.”

Modeling has a short half-life, though. And the proxy-sisters traded looks for fitness as a career. (They recently started a fitness retreat together outside Montreal).

“I would say from 16-22 is your primetime,” says Ebonie. “My values changed over the years, so modeling didn’t quite fit with who I was anymore. I’m more focused on my brain and being healthy rather than just appearance.”

Andrea and Ebonie

Andrea and Ebonie are co-founders and owners of I Breathe Fitness, Andrea is also a yoga teacher; Ebonie a marketing consultant.

This energetic duo of best friends turned business partners met when they were 16 years old during a bridal fashion show. Both girls have big personalities – they are loud, strong-headed dreamers, and always live life to the fullest.

Growing tired of the industry pressures and standards of beauty, Andrea and Ebonie realized that modelling wasn’t for them and decided to embark on new opportunities. About a year ago, these entrepreneurial women decided to get together and start – I Breathe Fitness - which offers a full week of travel to an exotic location in order to: train with a renowned professional coach, get to eat sumptuous meals, explore and relax. Every day is different and has exciting new challenges. The first trip will run in July when the show airs. “We will have to watch online a day after it airs,” says Ebonie.

The two ladies first met each other when they were 16 working at a bridal show. “We connected the first time we met,” said Andrea, “and we’ve been best friends ever since. In fact we are like sisters and since filming this show we have never been closer. Yes, doing something like The Amazing Race Canada can test a friendship. But there were no fights.”

Applying to be on the show was a no brainer, says Ebonie. “We started watching the American version 10 years ago and fell in love with it," she said. "The timing for us to apply and get accepted was just perfect as we are just starting our new business.”

Since they are both travellers, it was not difficult with either of the ladies to tell family and friends they’d be away for a while. “I told my mom that I felt like leaving to go on a trip and she asked no questions,” said Andrea.

As for their new business, the fact the ladies will be on national television serves as a terrific vehicle for anyone who wants to go on a fitness retreat to a beautiful location. “This is a relatively new concept in North America,” Ebonie  explained. “We hope our presence on the show inspires people to come with us on future trips.”

They turned me off quitting at the Start Line Task, seriously, never heard of alliances or Seeking help from a bystander or another team. Dumb move, I would expect them to quit again in the future.

They clearly said they wouldn't moving forward... so hopefully they stick to their word!

They haven't taken another penalty, nor has anyone else, but they're starting to remind me of Caroline & Jennifer in a way :(

A couple good legs, but kind of a "floater" team we can't get rid of. I expected to like them more than I am so far.

Honestly, Caroline and Jenn are way better than Andrea/Ebonie. Their first season was definitely more consistent in placement. Andrea and Ebonie are just up and down and no in between.
Second season, not so much though. :funny:

The Country Singers are the most overrated F/F team in TAR history, and certainly the one with the most annoying fanbase.

Conversely, Andrea/Ebonie have unseated Laura/Jackie as TARCAN's most underrated F/F team ever.

I expected them to do good but no. They're kinda much like Kelly & Kate, both teams own fitness-related businesses, took a penalty in the 1st leg and pretty much at the back of the pack with a few nice finishes. Kelly & Kate at least won a leg, Andrea & Ebonie had two 2nd place finishes.
