Ivana and Korey are co-workers and best friends who met 10 years ago at the gym. They share a lot of traits with one another, which is something that makes their friendship so strong. While Korey and Ivana are fun, loving and positive, they are both passionate and determined, sharing a similar work ethic focus. Working as personal trainers at the gym together, where they are some of the most popular trainers, they feel that their physical ability could be one of their greatest strengths during THE AMAZING RACE CANADA.

Ivana is a livewire who wears her heart on her sleeve. Born in Bosnia, she escaped Sarajevo with her family at the age of six and has grown up to be a strong-willed and determined woman. She’s loud, extroverted, and prides herself in being a role model to her clients, family, and friends.

Korey is the calm to Ivana’s storm. Rarely aggressive and a teddy bear at heart, Korey is kind, thoughtful, and says that his strength lies in his ability to perform well under pressure. They’re an odd couple – but with Ivana’s energy and Korey’s charm they will surely be fun to watch.

From reading their Bio I get a Flo/Zach and Brooke/Scott vibe.

You think?  :funny:

I don't know, she seems pretty fierce, and she's a gym personal trainer, so I think she will be a bit more physical than Flo and Brooke!
But maybe in the attitude :P

Korey Sam, 31, and Ivana Krunic, 30, friends and co-workers from Toronto, both work as personal trainers. While they've dated friends they've never dated each other. "Which is good," says Ivana, who was born in Bosnia and lived in Germany as a child. "If Korey looks at another girl, I'm not going to be, 'Later.' I'll be, 'She's cute.' It's platonic but it's great. There's no tension."

I get Flo/Brooke/Marie vibes in Ivana, very dominant and very competitive. Korey is obviously the more chill and fun type, Zach/Scott/Tim vibes there.

KOREY SAM & IVANA KRUNIC

The pals and former co-workers, now running their own respective personal training companies in Toronto, know it puts a target on your back to tout your fitness.

Ivana recalls the “Body Break” couple, Hal and Joanne who competed on TARC in 2013. “They were always considered a threat, always got U-Turned, and in the end, I think Joanne was suffering from mental exhaustion,” the part-time kindergarten supply teacher Ivana says.

“At the end of the day, it’s a mental race. Physical is an advantage. The controllable factor. The uncontrollable is the challenges, the food, the traveling, the lack of sleep, the fact that other teams may look at us and say, ‘We want to U-Turn them.’ But I would rather look intimidating than for someone to say, ‘These guys? No competition.’”

Adds Korey: “As trainers, our whole job is to motivate and encourage people, and never make them feel like failures.

“I don’t think quitting is an option for us. In the rare event something happens, I can’t see myself being upset with her.”

Ivana is a Math teacher. I hated Math, but if my Math teachers looked as hot as Ivana, I would have been more interested  :funny:
