    Dennis & Erika

    Dennis & Erika met while they were in college at New York University. She was the Resident Assistant in charge of his floor, and it was completely against the rules for her to date the dorm residents. They found their way around this by booking a trip to Italy together, even though they barely knew each other. Their relationship progressed and they eventually got engaged, but Dennis broke off the engagement after Erika went skydiving naked. As Dennis describes it, "I thought I was dreaming, but no, here comes my future wife floating through the air with nothing on but socks and sneakers and a naked instructor strapped to her back."

    Dennis & Erika's relationship has been through a lot. Six months after they started dating, Dennis saved Erika's life by pulling her free from a vicious dog attack. After that, Erika knew that she was in love.

    In order to prepare for THE AMAZING RACE 5, Dennis & Erika worked out and trained by running in low-oxygen chambers. They say despite their broken engagement, they teamed up to do the Race "to see if we could handle the pressure of high-stress, intense situations." Erika says they are the perfect Team because "we know how to play a cutthroat game fairly and ethically."

    The likeable team...or at least, the likeable team that stays in the race. They'll make it through each leg with good editing, but lose the game at the very end.

    This team will make an early mistake i believe that will cost them. Maybe they feel like skydiving instead of racing but get attacked by a few dogs on the way? sounds like a really boring team...

    I like these guys. Kind of a funny reason to break their engagement.
    Who I'm rooting for: Survivor: Vanuatu - Scout Cloud Lee, Leann Slaby, Lea Masters, Eliza Orlins, Twila Tanner, and Lisa Keiffer.

    it's kind of an insane reason to break off an engagement
    Extreme is extreme - what's the big deal? cover her with your coat, tell her how it makes you feel and move on, break the engagement?? This guy is probably a control freak and she's well rid of him.

    That's the kind of statement that comes back to haunt a contestant.

    Skydiving naked? Wouldn't that be, well, really, really cold?

    It might get interesting with these two, since they were engaged, and now they're not, and obviously there's other issues (skydiving naked can't be the only reason he broke it off) so I hope they stick around awhile.
