Anthony Marotta and Stephanie Kacandes are a Dating team on The Amazing Race 13.

The couple spent most of their time on the race near the back of the pack, with Anthony's decision to try to push start their stalling cab at the airport putting them firmly in last at the beginning of the second leg. His subsequent difficulty at solving the Roadblock later on cemented their elimination in 10th place.

This competitive couple is hoping to be engaged by the end of the Race. Back together again after a year-long break-up, Anthony says he will propose to Stephanie if they make it through the Race.

Even though they've overcome many of their differences, their constant bickering would suggest otherwise.

Anthony, a mortgage broker, describes himself as adventurous and entertaining. He enjoys talking sports, hunting and poker. When asked what country he'd most like to visit – Anthony said Italy because he's 100 percent Italian and has yet to visit.

Stephanie is a financial saleswoman. She loves meeting new people and learning different cultures. She describes herself as outgoing, funny and athletic, and loves competition.

Both of them are eager to Race around the world and put their relationship to the test and ultimately prove to everyone – including themselves – that they do belong together.[1]
