Kevin and Drew met in 1984, when they became fraternity brothers in New York. When they heard about THE AMAZING RACE, they knew that it was "an unbelievable opportunity for two guys who had never been anywhere where you need a passport." They make a strong Team because they're both very competitive, and both feel that "it would sure be nice to win a million dollars!"
The fraternity brothers from Season 1 are all grown up and married. Kevin & Drew met in a fraternity while attending St. Johns University and immediately hit it off. This high-spirited friendship paved the way for one of the most popular teams in the series' 10 seasons.
After falling short of the million dollars during Season 1, the fraternity brothers took their lovable banter to Discovery Channel's "Kevin and Drew Unleashed."
Kevin describes himself as loyal, analytical and outgoing, and has been performing stand-up comedy in New York City for the last three years. Drew describes himself as charismatic and honest. Both are admittedly hard-headed and stubborn which provides a constant stream of bickering between these two.Although Kevin and Drew are still close, they don't see each other as much as they would like to due to work and family responsibilities. Both are looking forward to traveling the world together again and bringing home the $1 million.
