Ken Duphiney and Gerard Duphiney are a team of Brothers on The Amazing Race 3.


Ken, a freelance casting director in New York City, and Gerard, a financial consultant in New Jersey, are the odd couple brother Team. They describe themselves as "different in almost every aspect of their lives...married vs. single, conservative vs. liberal, straight vs. gay," but they share a similar sense of humor and love of laughter. Of eight siblings growing up, they provided the comic relief to their family…and still do.

Despite their dramatic differences, Ken and Gerard enjoy spending time together. Some of their favorite activities are eating, laughing, walking around New York City and talking politics. Now that they don't live in the same city anymore, they are looking forward to spending an extended period of time together.

After receiving his Masters degree at Columbia University, Gerard became a youth director on the Lower Eastside. During that period, he is extremely proud of having put together successful programs for over 1,500 immigrant youths. Gerard currently resides in New Jersey, and is an accomplished financial advisor with a major firm.

One of Ken's greatest accomplishments was going out on his own as a freelance casting director five years ago. He is also extremely proud of joining Gotham Volleyball, a gay volleyball league. This was one of the first times Ken felt that his homosexuality didn't interfere with him playing sports and being part of a team. Now 40, Ken wants to go on this adventure to fulfill some of his short-term goals, face his fears and live his life.

Ken's birth date is May 15. Gerard is happily married ten years to his wife Jennifer and is the father of twins. He celebrates his birthday on November 16.
