Nathan Hagstrom and Jennifer Parker are a Dating team on the 12th season of The Amazing Race.
This athletic couple first met in college while living together with other friends. Both admit they couldn't stand each other at first, but soon grew closer and started dating. They've broken up several times in their two-year courtship, but remain true to each other. In one breath each will tell you that the other is their soul-mate and in the next, they'll tell you how much the other drives them crazy.
The biggest difference between the two is organization–he's organized and she is not. Both have dominant personalities and tend to be very stubborn.
Nathan teaches volleyball and also works as a waiter. Jennifer is currently enrolled at Cal State Long Beach and works as a gymnastics coach. She was also on the Los Angeles Clippers Spirit dance team. Jennifer describes herself as thrilling and loving while he describes himself simply as "one cool dude." Both are eager to put their relationship to the test on a race around the world.
