Ashleigh Jende and Jarrod Jende are a team of Newlyweds on The Amazing Race Australia 3.
Ashleigh (27) and Jarrod (28) are a naive (yet cutthroat and insensitive) couple who recently who had their first year wedding anniversary. She is a hairdresser and he works as a PE teacher. With 'traditional' Anglo working class values, Ashleigh enjoys fulfilling her wifely duties such as cleaning and housework.
Their overseas travel is limited."We've only been to developed and English-speaking countries so we're expecting to encounter some culture shocks. I'm not good with the language barrier at the best of times," says Jarrod. Ashleigh adds: "I can stomach most things, but Jarrod will struggle. He likes his meat and three veg."
The high school couple describe themselves as competitive. They both go to the gym to keep fit and have entered triathlons but agree the Amazing Race will be their ultimate competition. "We do a lot of competitive things and always strive for the next biggest challenge, but there's not much bigger than this," sums up Jarrod. Jarrod admits: "We'd hate to lose to the New Zealanders!" Jarrod notes he would "push an Australian under a bus and do anything to win".
