They're young, adventurous and ready to take their relationship to the next level. Will the race make or break the future of this loved-up couple?

With a big Greek wedding on the cards for Sydney lovebirds Chris and Anastasia, they're using the race as a test of whether their relationship will last the distance.

"We don't see it as just running a race. Nothing will push our relationship like The Amazing Race Australia," says Anastasia.

After dating for nearly three years, Anastasia is ready for a proposal and Chris hasn't ruled out an engagement at the end of the race.

This couple admit they don't always see eye-to-eye and predict some stormy moments as they navigate their way towards the pit stops – and a diamond ring.

"We have a relationship that's like four seasons in one day. It's up and down very quickly," admits Chris, 23.

"We both have very strong opinions and at times those opinions clash," says Anastasia, 21. "I've told Chris I'd like to give my opinion but the final call will be his."

But differing opinions aside, they believe they have all the right ingredients to run a competitive race.

"I think we are quick decision makers and problem solvers. We might clash in decisions, but it's just going to be a case of who can scream louder," insists Chris. "We're both young and smart and strong enough. We don't have many weaknesses."

Anastasia believes her supportive nature brings out the best in them, even if that means she is trying constantly to keep her man happy.

"I find that she tries extra hard to impress me," says Chris. "I can see that. I love her and I'm proud of her so she doesn't need to impress me. But I won't hold her back on this race as that could be an advantage. If she wants to impress me then go ahead."

Anastasia put her studies in nutrition on hold to compete in the race, while Chris completed his Masters in Engineering Science last year.

With several overseas holidays together under their belt, they have packing down to an art form and Anastasia insists there won't be a lot of make-up in her backpack.

"Even though I'm a girly girl I don't need to spend hours doing my hair and make-up so I don't think I'll be too fussed about it," she says before Chris chips in with, "You won't be fussed at all about it. We have a race to win!"[1]
