Retrieved from

Pat and Brenda met at work about eighteen years ago, when Pat introduced Brenda to her future husband. When they both became mothers in 1987, they took backpacking trips together as a break from home and work responsibilities. Their combined strengths make them a strong Team: whereas Pat is a creative thinker and is not afraid to ask for what she wants, Brenda is laid back and likes to be organized.[1]

The Amazing Race 1

In Leg 1 Pat and Brenda had been in the middle of the pack.

In Leg 2, they used their Fast Forward and checked-in the Pit Stop at first place.

In Leg 3, they went to the wrong pendulum in their Detour option, and this mistake along with several compounded other ones, caused them to fall into their elimination.
