One will be hard pressed to find two guys with a stronger competitive streak. Armed with the same first name, Richard Herrera and Richard Hardin like to call themselves 'The Riches'.

They hated each other's guts when they first made each other's acquaintance, while playing for opposing teams in an American Football League. It wasn't till two years ago that they finally hit it off and ever since then, they have never ceased trying to outdo each other from ball games to dance offs. With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Their friends compare them to a pro-wrestling tag team and Herrera sees joining The Amazing Race Asia as a way to prove themselves. "I'm a born winner and my partner Rich (Hardin) is a born second-placer. Thought it would be nice to take his sorry ass to the top at least once and give him that first taste of victory he's been longing for." There they go again, and spoken like a true WWE member.
