Brent Sweeney and Sean Sweeney are a team of Brothers on The Amazing Race Canada 3.
They proved to be the plucky comic relief for this season of the race with Sean's tendency to vomit during intense moments of stress. While they were doubtful of their abilities as first, they proved to be very consistent racers as, despite being non-eliminated in Leg 9, they constantly finished at the top half of the standings with two leg wins under their belt. In the finale, Brent would continuously struggle at the Cycling Roadblock falling off the narrow beam. He would eventually complete the Roadblock after 20 attempts, but this pushed them so far behind that they ended up in 3rd place.

These East Coasters carry themselves with charm and quick wit, making them an unforgettable duo. The small town brothers decided to pursue their dreams and move to Toronto to study design and experience the city life. The laidback, down-to-earth siblings have big, endearing personalities, typical of those from this part of the country.
Brent and Sean try not to take life too seriously and maintain a great sense of humour in their everyday adventures. They may not be the most physically fit team in the race but they're not worried about that. As they both say, "Our regional appeal and charm will get us far on the race!" They feel their strong will and determination, combined with their fun loving personalities, will be advantageous. "Sometimes it's the people no one imagines anything of, that do the things no one can imagine," says Brent. The duo is motivated to complete the race now while they have fewer responsibilities and obstacles holding them back. Brent and Sean hope to win THE AMAZING RACE CANADA so they can pay off their student loans, help their parents, and do some travelling.
