Aaron Goldschmidt and Arianne Udell are a team of Lifelong Friends on The Amazing Race 3.
Best friends and leaders of the "Twin Hunt", they made an alliance set on getting Derek & Drew out of the Race. They got the lion's share of the screen time for the first half of the season, due to their alliance and their somewhat bitter tendencies, and looked to be a sure bet to make it late into the season. Unfortunately, while on the way from Portugal to Spain, they were among half of the teams to put unleaded gasoline in their car instead of diesel, and after barely surviving from that mistake, they would never recover from it in the next leg, finishing in 7th place.

- “We're hoping to win this race with our wit, charm, and sex appeal: That's our motto in a nutshell”
Aaron and Arianne have been friends for over 15 years after meeting at the Florida Academy of Dramatic Arts. Aaron thought "she was stuck up, a show off and developed a huge crush on her that he want to crush her."
They are the worst of friends and have traveled through life together: "it's been like a steel coaster--scary." They have shared many wonderful memories together and hard times as well. The only problem with being more than just friends is that Aaron is gay and Arianne is straight. As Arianne says, her biggest disappointment with Aaron is that "they planned to be together some day they will not be naturally conceived."
They both look at this experience as an opportunity to travel the world with their best friend. Aaron describes himself as passionate, loyal and carefree, while Arianne describes herself as emotional, exotic and down to earth. They feel that they will win because of their physical abilities, agility, urban sensibility and, of course, their sense of humor.
The agree that the most important items in their backpacks are their iPod and wristbands, because as they say "music inspires us and our style inspires others." Aaron and Arianne are fluent in both body language and the international language of love.Aaron received his B.F.A. from New York University and is now a pre-school teacher in New York. His birth date is November 12. Arianne attended Northwestern University and received her B.S. in speech. Her birth date is February 3.
