Meredtih Tufaro and Maria Sampogna are a team of Best Friends on The Amazing Race 6.

Profile

Meredith & Maria are friends and roommates from Queens, New York. They met on the last day of classes freshman year at Boston University, when Meredith found Maria's ID on the floor of a bar. At first, Maria gave Meredith attitude about having her ID, but the two of them ended up living next door to each other the following year and became great friends.

They say they are both laid back, outgoing, smart and the two funniest girls on earth. However, Meredith says she can be extremely competitive, sensitive and passionate, while Maria can be very passive and non-emotional. Both enjoy hanging out with their friends and share great stories about their escapades around New York.

Their main motivation for doing THE AMAZING RACE is the money, but they say doing the show and traveling with each other will make the experience priceless.
