Of the 4 legs they raced, I found them very memorable overall. They had the potential to do well, but they made mistakes sometimes that cost them some time.

Even though basketball is popular from where I live, I never knew these 2 before the race. I wanna see them in a returning racers season in the future. :)

Cedric: No, no. And everybody who thought I threw up because of the fish, I was actually throwing up because of an octopus that they didnít show that was dissected when we turned the corner. I just wanted to clear that up. (Laughs.)

:funny: Glad he cleared that up.

Wait, nobody posted this? https://parade.com/640371/mikebloom/the-amazing-race-30-cedric-ceballos-and-shawn-marion-on-sinking-free-throws-and-french-dinghies/

From which city is Cedric from?
Just some weird Australian bloke, who likes reality TV shows...

In real life, I'm the king of sarcasm.

Maui, Hawaii :)

He was one of the rare non-contiguous US racers.
