Brooke Adams and Robert "Robbie" Strauss are a Dating Pro Wrestlers team on The Amazing Race 25.

They were not the brightest bulbs, constantly finding themselves in last place, but staying in the game mostly because of their performance at the physical portions of the game. Although they always insisted they were a threat to win, they were more prominent because of their antics, as Brooke complained whenever they would hit the smallest of problems, while Robbie often chewed the scenery.

They became much more cutthroat in the second half of the season, rallying the other teams to target Kym & Alli in Malta and lying to Amy & Maya in Singapore, almost causing the latter's elimination. Despite winning the penultimate leg, they got lost in Los Angeles and by the time they reached the site of the first Roadblock, Phil eliminated them in 4th place as part of a Midpoint Elimination.

Brooke

  • Name: Brooke Adams
  • Age: 29
  • Hometown: Houston, Texas
  • Connection to your teammate: Girlfriend
  • Current occupation: Professional Wrestler
  • Describe what you do: I perform live wrestling matches all over the world.
  • 3 words to describe you: Dramatic, hilarious and competitive.
  • Favorite hobbies: Wrestling, weight training and living a healthy, sporty lifestyle.
  • What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Winning the Knockouts Championship. For many reasons, I never thought I'd ever accomplish my ultimate goal in a sport that is so difficult and competitive. I had very little professional training prior to becoming a knockout and I go up against the best female wrestlers out there today. I'm truly blessed to have been a Knockouts Champion twice. I never gave up on my dreams and gave it my all.
  • What famous person reminds you of yourself? Rhona Mitra with Cameron Diaz's sense of humor.
  • What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Amaury Nolasco from "Prison Break."
  • What scares you most about traveling? Getting sick, hating the food and the language barriers. I get super frustrated when I can't understand someone.
  • What excites you most about traveling? Experiencing new environments, cultures and other ways of life that are unfamiliar. Also, seeing the beautiful landscape and architecture of different countries.
  • Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: I need to learn to talk things through and not blow up or go to psycho mode so easily. It causes our fights to be long and dragged out.
  • Pet peeve about your teammate: Mainly how he eats. He tends to smack very loudly and eats crazy fast like he's missed a few meals.
  • What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I'd love to go to Greece. It's absolutely beautiful. The water and the architecture are breathtaking.
  • What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? To trust and build more confidence in myself, to be more patient, and to trust Rob again. He has hurt me deeply in the past.
