    Kent and Vyxsin - TAR 18




    Name (Age): Kent Kaliber (35)
    Hometown: Louisville, Ky., currently residing in Los Angeles, Calif.
    Connection to your Teammate: Boyfriend
    Current Occupation: Print and Runway Model
    Previous Season/Result: Season 12/5th place

    Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: My biggest mistake in our previous season was completely burning out the clutch of our car in Italy.

    Most memorable moment from your first Race: Arriving at the magical masquerade village in Vilnius, Lithuania. Everyone there was dressed head to toe in mystical costumes. The costumes, the creativity and the decadence reminded me of the Sci-Fi and Comic-Con conventions that Vyxsin and I love to attend every year.

    Favorite place you visited on your first season: India, I loved the frenetic energy and cascade of color in every direction. The kaleidoscopic fashion was surreal and the beautiful Indian belly dancers kept my spirits high.

    Why do you want to run the Race again? I lost my dad very suddenly and unexpectedly this year. I want to run the Race as a tribute to him. A victory in this race will give my family some much needed good news.

    How have you changed since the last time you competed? Vyxsin and I moved to L.A. and started modeling for our favorite designers.

    People would be surprised to learn: Believe it or not, I'm NOT much of an outdoorsman. Before our first season, I had never been camping. It is very difficult to apply eyeliner in a tent. I don't have much interest in "roughing it" so to speak.

    One location that you hope to go on this adventure: I hope to go to the most smoldering and humid Amazon Rainforest because Vyxsin in a pink and black bikini for an entire leg would be great motivation.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race again (other than winning one million dollars): I want to inspire our families. It's been a difficult year and this Race could be the much-needed healing that Vyxsin and I need.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: Housekeeping is not one of Vyxsin's talents. Her house is a disorganized melting pot of garters, glitter and glam rock. I shudder to think about what the inside of her backpack will look like. There is no way I am letting her anywhere near our race fanny pack and passports!

    What would you do if you won the million dollars? Go on a vacation!

    Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: We are prepared physically but we need to work on getting our head in the game. We are going to focus more mentally.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Name (Age): Vyxsin Fiala (32)
    Hometown: Louisville, Ky., but currently residing in Los Angeles, Calif.
    Connection to your Teammate: Girlfriend
    Current Occupation: Print and Runway Model
    Previous Season/Result: Season 12/5th place

    Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: I should have helped Kent get better prepared for stick-shift driving. He burnt the clutch in our vehicle in Italy, which turned out to be a one-way ticket to last place.

    Most memorable moment from your first Race: Watching Kent pole vault into a muddy irrigation ditch in Amsterdam. He does not enjoy getting dirty! He looked like a miserable wet kitten as he crawled out of that ditch in his ruined outfit.

    Favorite place you visited on your first season: Burkina Faso, Africa, the people were so kind and warm from the moment we stepped off the plane.

    Why do you want to run the Race again? We have suffered the loss of a loved one since our first race. We need an uplifting experience at this point in our lives.

    How have you changed since the last time you competed? Our experience on THE AMAZING RACE has opened so many doors for us! We have moved to Los Angeles to pursue our love of fashion, club life and new adventures.

    What are you passionate about? Dancing, my teammate and my family.

    People would be surprised to learn: I feel totally at home in the kitchen. I love to cook vegan food.

    One location that you hope to go on this adventure: Australia, Kent would look adorable up in a tree cuddling with the koala bears.

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Packing! We carry way too much with us. We need to pack lighter.

    What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race again (other than winning one million dollars): We hope to inspire our families and to reconnect with each other after an extremely difficult year.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: Kent is always "borrowing" (i.e. stealing) my eye-pencils and powders. I am constantly chasing him away from my make-up bag.

    What would you do if you won the million dollars? If I won the million dollars I would take both of our families on a long vacation.

    Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: We are going to try to form alliances with other teams instead of only focusing on ourselves. Working together with another team or two could propel us all to the final three.

    Yay! I enjoyed this team immensely during their season.

    This quite odd couple have an interesting dynamic. As strange looking and somewhat feminine acting as Kent is, I think he genuinely loves Vyxin and is quite obviously straight (although my husband finds that quite hard to believe). To put it nicely, she is NOT the sharpest knife in the drawer and she panics easily. He puts up with her meltdowns and lack of smarts without putting her down or criticizing her. In fact, he compliments her when she gets something right and keeps his mouth shut when she messes up. She is lucky to have him. They seem to be a matched pair and have a very sweet and loving relationship. I doubt that they will win and will probably be the next ones eliminated, but I wish them well.

    I have a feeling their time is soon, even if they manage to survive this current leg (which I will have a tremendous amount of respect for them if they do and have to face a penalty for not taking the required flight).

    I didn't get to see these two in their initial run, but I have to agree here - Kent is a very supportive person to Vyxsin's troubles. He doesn't overly criticize, and when they do something good they compliment each other.

    I will say though I do like the two with the lighter goth makeup - they still stand out in the way they want, but I think they look much more handsome/prettier. (Kinda like Gabby from "NCIS" way).

    I have changed my mind about this couple. She is irritating with her constant nagging and his whining gets on my nerves. It is time for them to go. (And, I think the relationship has probably run its course). Although, if he really has a sexual preference for women over men, it may be hard for him to replace her. I doubt many women would want to have a relationship with a guy who looks like a drag queen.

    I think I'd be more worried that he fits into a smaller pant size than I do...I couldn't even share clothes with him!!
