These two former Division 1 College athletes look forward to becoming the first ever all female Team to win the Race. Besides athleticism, these sisters have little in common.
LaKisha works as a youth program coordinator and basketball coach. She hopes the same strengths that make her a good coach – patience and a strong competitive nature - will ultimately make her the best Racer the game has seen. Meanwhile, she claims her sister is very impatient and blunt when it comes to dealing with others or speaking her mind.
Jennifer works as a marketing assistant and newsletter coordinator for an assisted living company. She claims that she is the creative one while LaKisha is the analytical one…two traits that will undoubtedly be tested on the Race. Jennifer is infectiously energetic and confident, played college volleyball at the University of Louisville. LaKisha played basketball for the same school. Both have a competitive drive and are eager to put it to the test against this season’s crop of Racers.
Neither sister has traveled extensively outside of the states, but they are looking forward to embarking on this journey of a lifetime together in order to change that. They will run the Race with unstoppable speed and numerous arguments along the way.

- During the leg 9 in China, Jen raced against Luke for the cluebox. Luke got to the cluebox first and when Jen tried to sneak in, Luke reacted by throwing his elbow almost hitting Jen in the face. This caused Jen called Luke a "Bitch" because in her words, "it was a bitch move". Jen again raced against Luke for another cluebox. Jen beat Luke to the cluebox, before Luke plowed into her, pushing her into the cluebox which almost tumbled over. These events leads a confrontation among two teams at the pit stop. When Jen told Phil of the events, Luke stormed off signing at Jen, "Bitch!". When Luke signed to Phil that it's his turn to tell his side of the story, Kisha let out a nervous giggle that sent Margie into a rage accusing her of laughing at Luke.
- They would've been the first team ever to escape elimination after being U-Turned by Tammy & Victor (replacing the Yield; ever since the U-Turn made its appearance, the team who had been U-Turned wound up getting eliminated), but at the race to pit stop Jen went to the porta potty restroom because of drinking 3 bottles of water while having Chinese delicacies at the Roadblock. This caused Jaime & Cara barely arrive pit stop ahead of them and cause Kisha & Jen been eliminated.
