TeamEdit

KentEdit

  • Age 31 (Season 12); 35 (Unfinished Business)
  • Hometown: Louisville, Ky., currently residing in Los Angeles, California
  • Connection to your Teammate: Boyfriend
  • Current Occupation: Print and Runway Model
  • Previous Season/Result: Season 12/5th place
  • Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: My biggest mistake in our previous season was completely burning out the clutch of our car in Italy.
  • Most memorable moment from your first Race: Arriving at the magical masquerade village in Vilnius, Lithuania. Everyone there was dressed head to toe in mystical costumes. The costumes, the creativity and the decadence reminded me of the Sci-Fi and Comic-Con conventions that Vyxsin and I love to attend every year.
  • Favorite place you visited on your first season: India, I loved the frenetic energy and cascade of color in every direction. The kaleidoscopic fashion was surreal and the beautiful Indian belly dancers kept my spirits high.
  • Why do you want to run the Race again? I lost my dad very suddenly and unexpectedly this year. I want to run the Race as a tribute to him. A victory in this race will give my family some much needed good news.
  • How have you changed since the last time you competed? Vyxsin and I moved to L.A. and started modeling for our favorite designers.
  • People would be surprised to learn: Believe it or not, I'm NOT much of an outdoorsman. Before our first season, I had never been camping. It is very difficult to apply eyeliner in a tent. I don't have much interest in "roughing it" so to speak.
  • One location that you hope to go on this adventure: I hope to go to the most smoldering and humid Amazon Rainforest because Vyxsin in a pink and black bikini for an entire leg would be great motivation.
  • What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race again (other than winning one million dollars): I want to inspire our families. It's been a difficult year and this Race could be the much-needed healing that Vyxsin and I need.
  • Pet peeve about your teammate: Housekeeping is not one of Vyxsin's talents. Her house is a disorganized melting pot of garters, glitter and glam rock. I shudder to think about what the inside of her backpack will look like. There is no way I am letting her anywhere near our race fanny pack and passports!
  • What would you do if you won the million dollars? Go on a vacation!
  • Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: We are prepared physically but we need to work on getting our head in the game. We are going to focus more mentally.

VyxsinEdit

  • Age: 29 (Season 12); 32 (Unfinished Business)
  • Hometown: Louisville, Ky., but currently residing in Los Angeles, Calif.
  • Connection to your Teammate: Girlfriend
  • Current Occupation: Print and Runway Model
  • Previous Season/Result: Season 12/5th place
  • Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: I should have helped Kent get better prepared for stick-shift driving. H.party from my make-up bag.
  • What would you do if you won the million dollars? If I won the million dollars I would take both of our families on a long vacation.
  • Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: We are going to try to form alliances with other teams instead of only focusing on ourselves. Working together with another team or two could propel us all to the final three.

CBS BiographyEdit

These best friends have been dating on and off for over three years. These purveyors of Goth pride themselves on keeping Louisville "weird." In their own hometown Kent & Vyxsin are very active in their local scene, regularly hosting and acting as emcee at rock shows and club nights. The most difficult part of the Race will undoubtedly be keeping up their daily "make up" routine. Between the two of them Kynt & Vyxsin have collectively had their hair dyed 18 different colors. Fashion is a passion for these two.

Vyxsin claims that the biggest difference between the two is that she is very emotional while he is more reserved. She has been trying to get him to open up more and express his true feelings which she claims she's having success doing. Vyxsin describes herself as compassionate and theatrical and she works as a waiter at Ramsi's Cafe.

Kynt is a waiter at the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant. Kynt describes himself as abstract, atypical and avant-garde He claims that the biggest difference between the two is that Vyxsin is more emotional while Kynt is more sarcastic. Both have also worked as receptionists at Kaleidoscope hair salon for several years.

Together they enjoy shopping, dancing and doing each other's hair/makeup. Besides a mirror Kynt & Vyxsin's favorite thing to stare into is their computer monitor as both are admittedly MySpace-addicts. Additionally they both enjoy roadtripping to Sci-Fi conventions across the country where as Kynt puts it, "They feel right at home surrounded by Storm Troopers and Wookies." Both have a dream of someday attending the Wave-Gotik-Treffen in Leipzig, Germany, which is the largest Goth/industrial music festival in the world.

Representing the "Goth" community in Louisville has embedded a strong sense of "us against the world" mentality in these two Racers. Therefore, don't look for them to fall apart when the chips are down, a trait that will undoubtedly be tested on the Race.

In 2010, after the death of his father, Kent dropped the "y" from his name and returned to using an "e".[1]
