Here are all the teams competing on The Amazing Race Australia
Gen-Z Siblings: Alana (21) and Niko (19), SA
The brother and sister team after our own heart.
Gen-Z's Niko and Alana are by far the youngest of all the teams, but they defs have the ability to go all the way.
Alana' special skill-set? Packing.
"I like using packing cubes to keep everything organised, and only pack essentials pretty much. Cute essentials though."
As for their weakness, Niko admits he is a picky eater.
"I should be able to eat any type of meat, but if it's a weird delicacy or anything spicy count me out - especially if there is a time limit.
"I would give it a go, however I would be definitely taking my time and drinking lots of water between each bite."
The Influencers: Sid (26) and Ash (30), NSW
Sid and Ash are former elite swimmers-turned-influencers, whose major concern is ditching the luxe life that they're used to for The Amazing Race.
"We always have fun," Ash said, "we can sometimes get irritated with each other and are both very stubborn, so arguments can sometimes escalate."
When asked about his proudest achievement in life Sid said, "My bullet-proof self-esteem and freedom!
"I have an insane level of self-confidence in my ability to get through any situation, regardless of what life throws my way."
We think these two may be a handful.
Nurses: Nick (23) and Femi (23), NSW
Psychiatric nurses and besties Nick and Femi are confident in every challenge - unless it involves swimming.
At the thought of either of them having to go near the water, Femi very confidently says: "Please have a life vest available!"
Entering the Amazing Race, Femi and Nick want to "set an awesome example and inspire people like us - young, black and ambitious."
"Also the $250,000 cash prize obviously," Femi added...fair.
Footy Mates: Tom (23) and Tyler (23), VIC
Tom and Tyler (AKA our future husbands), have been friends for six years, and have played together at both semi and a professional level for AFL.
So if you were on the fence about watching The Amazing Race, this duo might just convince you.
"We have been born and raised to be competitive people throughout our football careers," Tom says.
The only downside to this team?
"Tom can be incredibly cheap," Tyler says. "Often he pulls out his wallet and there is dust flying off it because he hasn't opened it for days."
Sisters: Hayley (29) and Mikayla (24), QLD
The sisters might be ready to win, but they have one big hurdle to overcome.
"I'm a very bad flyer", Mikayla admitted, which will make the 'travelling' aspect of the game rather tricky.
Meanwhile, sister Hayley also said she has two MAJOR concerns: "I have a fear of escalators and snakes.
"If there are snakes on an escalator... that would be my worst nightmare."
Mighty Siblings: Viv (25) and Joey (28), VIC
Viv and Joey may be small (four foot five inches and five foot two inches to be exact) but they are not to be underestimated.
Viv and Joey grew up watching The Amazing Race, so they know EVERYTHING there is to know about the show.
As for their weaknesses?
"I'm super reliant on technology," Joey admitted.
"Like having Google Maps tell me where to go or using Google Translate to communicate... having no technology is going to be a massive challenge!"
The Nuns: Judy (53) and Therese (45), ACT
We don't know what it is that brings us so much joy when we think of nuns competing on The Amazing Race, but it really does.
They may not be the most athletic, but they have a major player on their side: "I can pray for endurance, perseverance and courage when I don't have any left."
God's one hell of a supporter, we'll give them that!
Mum and Daughter: Rowah (42) and Amani (18), NSW
Rowah and Armani have been training HARD for The Amazing Race, and considering Rowah owns three gyms we shouldn't be surprised if these ladies are fighting fit for the competition
"Nothing is more eye-opening than surrounding yourself with another culture that chooses to live their lives completely different to yours," Amani said, "Travel can give you the blank white sheet -- the chance to start fresh and explore another side of your personality.
"With travel comes challenges and the more challenges you take on, the more confident in yourself you become."
Newlyweds: Tim (29) and Rod (28), NSW
Tim and Rod got married in March this year and could think of no better way to spend their honeymoon than racing across the world.
Oh, and they're both certified personal trainers, so the literal 'racing' aspect shouldn't be a problem.
"I thrive on adrenaline," Tim said, "but would still be very scared if we needed to bungee jump or skydive." Regardless, it's the "gross eating challenges" Tim admitted he may struggle with the most.
Deadly Duo: Jasmin (30) and Jerome (30), WA
Jasmin and Jerome from Darwin want to set a good example for young indigenous Australians, admitting that their competitive streak will give them an 'edge' over the other teams.
"Jerome is the best navigator, which is definitely not my strong point," Jasmin admitted.
Meanwhile, Jerome says it will be the extreme challenges that he is most excited about.
"I love doing extreme things like skydiving and bungee jumping," he said, adding, "I think the eating challenges might be a weakness for me."
Farmer and Firie: Chris (58) and Adrienne (59), SA
Can Chris and Adrienne adopt us? Ok, thanks.
The couple have been together for 30 years (decent effort) and despite being on the older side of 30, they still play AFL and compete in events like Tough Mudder.
In case you still weren't convinced of their cuteness, here is what Adrienne had to say about travelling with Chris: "There isn't a worst part. We have been travelling life's highway for 30 years together, but I know she'll mention my snoring has no escape."
