Linda Weaver, Rebecca Weaver, Rachel Weaver, and Rolly Weaver are a team of Widow and Kids on The Amazing Race Family Edition.

Profile

The Weaver family hails from Ormond Beach, Florida. Linda, the mother of three, lost her husband and their father almost two years ago in an accident at Daytona International Speedway. Linda's children are Rebecca, 19, Rachel, 16, and the lone man of the team, Rolly, who's 14.

Since her husband's death, Linda, 46, has been forced to play the role of both breadwinner and nurturer. Linda is an elementary school teacher who is hoping her experiences on THE AMAZING RACE will alleviate some of the heartache from the past couple of years.

Rebecca enjoys surfing and horseback riding. Her proudest accomplishment is getting through the turmoil of losing her father without going crazy.

Rachel is a junior in high school who likes four-wheeling and riding horses.

Rolly, the youngest team member, enjoys football and basketball. He admits that he's running the Race for his father.

All three children and their mother have dealt with their loss in their own distinct ways and are looking forward to the experience of traveling and competing together as a family.
