Matt and Ana met in 1995, while they were both in the Army. When they drove together from Washington State to New York, "it was a fun trip and [they] acted like rebels." Their combined strengths make them a good Team for THE AMAZING RACE: while Matt is very hyper and energetic, Ana remains calm and efficient.[1]
