Gina Diggins and Sylvia Pitts are a team of Soccer Moms on The Amazing Race 3.

Profile

Gina and Sylvia are two 30-something stay-at-home moms from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, who are constantly on the go. Whether it's changing diapers, helping with homework or cheering on a little one at a soccer game, the pair have been busily taking care of their families and haven't had much time to focus on themselves.

While both moms attended the University of South Carolina, they met and became friends at a baby shower. Instead of pursuing careers outside of their home, they both decided to become at-home moms, and they've been close ever since. As Gina and Sylvia experience the joys and frustrations of motherhood, their children, whose ages range from 16 months to 9 years, have already shared many memorable moments together.

THE AMAZING RACE gives "Team Soccer Mom" the chance to experience an adventure away from their families before they head back to the chaos of daily life. "Our lives revolve around kids, carpools, diapers, cleaning bathrooms, laundry, etc.," says Gina. "I personally have had very little opportunity to travel. Everything I do on a daily basis is about my family, I want to do this trip for me."

Sylvia agrees. "I want to do something for me. I love taking care of my children but it's a job that requires one to devote themselves totally to someone else." She adds, "I'm also doing it for my daughter. I want her to see me do something special. I don't want her to think that all I did was sit at home!"

While they're on the road, both Gina and Sylvia have photos of their families with them so they can keep them close to their hearts during the tough days that lie ahead. With their easy-going, Southern nature, they think they have the charm and sensibility to come out on top. Plus, to them, the challenge is nothing compared to being a mom with a hectic family schedule.

Sylvia has three children, Charlie, Allison and Henry. Her birth date is January 17. Gina is mother of two children, Hunter and Abigil. Her birth date is September 23.
