The Amazing Race 1

Legs Competed 9
Placement 5th

Nancy & Emily were a team in the The Amazing Race 1. They finished 5th.


Nancy and Emily are the only parent-and-child Team on THE AMAZING RACE. They've enjoyed traveling extensively together, but have had a few disagreements along the way. They're a strong Team for THE AMAZING RACE because while mother Nancy is good at planning and considerate of others, daughter Emily is impulsive and competitive. [2]
