    Amanda & Kris - TAR 14


    Amanda Blackledge (23)
    Kris Klicka (24)


    Hometown: San Diego, Calif.
    Occupation: Amanda (Student); Kris (Sales Representative)
    Relationship: Dating

    This young couple who met more than three years ago hopes to spend the rest of their lives together, but before taking their relationship to the next level they are looking forward to sharing this experience together. Their favorite shared memory is falling in love with each other over bonfires at the beach accompanied by wine and s’mores. They plan on creating many more memories together on the Race and are hoping to fall in love all over again.

    Amanda is a communications student at Cal State San Marcos, but is working at a tanning salon until she graduates. She describes herself as outgoing, talkative and generous. When asked what her biggest pet peeve about her teammate is Amanda says that Kris occasionally doesn’t seem interested when she is talking to him.

    Kris, who was once almost attacked by a bear in Alaska, enjoys hunting, fishing and snow boarding. He currently works as a sales representative for a communications company. He has not had the opportunity to travel much outside of the United States and looks forward to the Race as a chance to explore other cultures and compete against the game's best. He hopes the other Teams are as hungry to win as he is.

    Amanda and Kris both have a tendency to be stubborn when it comes to a disagreement, but they realize they must be more open to ideas and solutions from one another in order to propel their team into winning the one million dollars. They feel this is a perfect opportunity to work on their shortcomings and any other communication issues they have. Amanda and Kris have so much in common that they complete each others sentences. One shared characteristic is the ability to make friends wherever they go, which can come in handy when racing around the globe.

    These two for the win please. I'm a sucker for the sweet couples.

    Amanda is a dead ringer for Jill of JVJ fame, and Kris totally reminds me of somebody as well, but I can't place him as easy.

    I did a double take and read through the bio twice to see if she was some relation to her. Out of all the dating/married teams this one's my favorite.

    I hope Kris isn't disappointed that they all probably are.

    I find it funny that both of them have the same exact names as Amanda & Chris from S4 (although Kris & Chris spell their names differently).

    I think I'm going to like them somewhat. Will they be my favorites, I don't know. But although they don't bring the most entertaining television, I'm also a sucker for the lovable nice teams (Kris & Jon, TK & Rachel), and I know it's just pre-show, but these two exemplify the "lovavle nice team" already.

    Other than that, they seem likeable enough...

    Too sweet for me... nevermind that s'mores and wine together sounds like a recipe for disaster.

    There's an article about Amanda and Kris (and two other San Diegans on Survivor) on sandiego.com - Television: Four San Diegans are back from "Survivor" and "Amazing Race"

    “At certain times,” she remembered, “you haven’t slept, you haven’t eaten. It’s really draining, but really awesome. It moves so fast, you look back and think, ‘Oh my, we did all that in three days.’”

    “When you watch the show,” Kris agreed, “you’re thinking how could they be so stupid. But when you haven’t had sleep or anything to eat, it’s a whole different thing.”

    Kris' smile in that profile picture looks so forced. S'mores and wine, doesn't sound like it'll settle in a stomach well.

    they definitely give off the Kris and Jon vibe and also a John Vito and Jill essence. I really like this team, especially since they're reppin San Diego :]

    Oh, I miss Kris & Jon - I was rooting for them in Season 6. They were sweet. I definitely hope Amanda & Kris are in that same vein.

    BTW, how weird is it that "Kris" is the gal in "Kris & Jon," and the guy in "Amanda & Kris"?
