Peter Harsch and Sarah Reinertsen are a Recently Dating team on The Amazing Race 10.

Sarah was the first amputee to complete the Iron Man Triathlon, but any goodwill the team had due to her disability was immediately destroyed by Peter's obnoxious behavior, as he constantly berated Sarah to tears. Though they were the favorites for the first half of the season, they got dreadfully lost while looking for the Detour in Kuwait, and finished 7th.

Peter & Sarah are both Ironman competitors who share a long history of teamwork. For the past seven years, these triathletes have worked together, trained together and even share unresolved romantic feelings for one another.

Sarah, a motivational speaker, has been an amputee since an early age and, as a woman with a physical disability, there are many obstacles she has yet to overcome. Her proudest accomplishment was being the first women with an artificial leg to finish the Hawaii Ironman Competition. An intense athlete, Sarah competes with passion and energy. She currently resides in Mission Viejo, California.

Her partner, Peter, is a clinical prosthetist who conducts clinical and technical seminars around the country for Ossur N.A. Right now, Peter works directly with Brooke Army Medical Center fitting U.S. soldiers who have lost limbs in Iraq or Afghanistan. Peter's expertise is fitting and aligning the newest prosthetic Bionic technology and running prosthesis. These skills allow each solider and patient to achieve their individual goals of returning to an active life. Peter lives in Laguna Beach, California and is extremely grateful for his family and friends.

Through their various competitions, Peter & Sarah have experienced each other's emotional highs and lows and are prepared for the challenges that lie ahead. Both are out to win the Race and show the world that this disability will not stop them from achieving their goals.

Notes:


1: During the leg, Peter & Sarah had fallen so far behind that all the other teams had already checked into the Pit Stop before Peter & Sarah even arrived at the Detour. When they finally found their next Route Marker at Souk Sulabiya, instead of performing the Detour, Peter & Sarah were instructed to go directly to the Pit Stop, where they were eliminated.

Post-Race

  • They have since broken up after the race.
  • Peter has two kids now.
  • Sarah is now married to an art director who is also coincidentally named Peter.[2]

Trivia

  • While Peter & Sarah were portrayed as a newly dating and bickering couple on the race (to the extent that Sarah "broke up" with Peter during their elimination in Kuwait), Sarah revealed that they were friends whose "dating" was non-existent and created to give them an interesting storyline.[3]
    • Peter also disputed the edit saying "it was too one-sided".[4]
  • Peter & Sarah are the first team to be eliminated in Kuwait.
