Rob Diaz and Kimberly Chabolla are a Dating team on the 10th season of The Amazing Race.

The "Fighting Couple" of the season. They were a fairly strong team despite their frequent tendency to argue and somewhat ugly American behavior especially in leg 5 and 8. However, their weak navigation skill, leaching information tendency and Rob's bad luck with car made them falter behind and underperform compare to Dustin & Kandice and Tyler & James. In the Final Three, they faltered behind Tyler & James when their cab didn't have an E-Z Pass system, dropping them behind the models and settled for 2nd place.

Retrieved from CBS.com

Rob & Kimberly met while bartending in Los Angeles, California. The young couple has been dating for two years and recently moved in together. Their primary reason for running the Race is to see if their relationship can withstand the intensity and pressure of traveling around the world at such a frantic pace.

Rob is currently enrolled in a real estate course in Los Angeles. He describes himself as goofy and compassionate and claims that the biggest difference between him and Kimberly is that she is more structured while he tends to be a "fly by the seat of your pants" type of guy.

Kimberly works in public relations in Los Angeles. She enjoys snowboarding, working out and wake boarding. A self-proclaimed goofball, Kimberly also sees herself as being a neat freak and a little clumsy. Clumsiness aside, she will undoubtedly be a physical threat to the other Teams and won't be afraid to do whatever it takes to win the one million dollar prize. Both Rob & Kimberly love to compete and are ready for the adventure of a lifetime.[1]

Notes:
1: Leg 7 featured an unaired Roadblock which Kimberly completed the Roadblock. At the Skydiving Roadblock in Leg 12, Rob was shown mentioning that he could've done this Roadblock. This, he (indirectly) implied that he had not completed the maximum of seven Roadblocks by that point.
2: Leg 9 was double-length, with two Detours and two Roadblocks, shown over two episodes. The placements listed in the first column reflect the order teams arrived at the leg's halfway point.

Post-Race Life

  • The couple broke-up sometime after the race.
    • Rob is now married to Leigh Lustig.
