Christopher Peever "Chris" DiLoreto and Aleisha Rose Groth are a team of Geek & Princess on The Amazing Race Australia 5.
Despite many difficulties, they consistently finished in good positions, being in contention to make the final against more physically imposing teams. They excelled in puzzle and stage challenges, but were much less effective at corporal endurance and eating challenges. They frequently placed second behind Ashleigh and Amanda, eventually leading to a rivalry between the two teams. However, they found themselves alienated from the four teams in the "Originals" alliance later on, resulting in them being sabotaged 3 times (though one of these was from a stowaway team they were on good terms with for persistently finishing well and being a "threat"). While they managed to overcome all three sabotages, the alliance factor became crucial in Tooraweenah, Broken Hill, and Silverton. On leg 21, they were pushed back to the last place by a U-Turn from Brendon and Jackson (where they struggled due to the challenge conflicting with their vegan diet on a non-elimination leg). On leg 22 they were caught up by a struggling Jaskirat & Anurag being given answers by Ashleigh & Amanda in the Wheels counting task, and later finishing last in the Shoey task. This resulted in their elimination in 4th place.

High school sweethearts and newlyweds Chris and Aleisha, are used to a fairy tale ending.
Having spent the last 12 years working as a princess in Disneyland, Aleisha is ready to trade her glass slippers for racing boots, with her self-proclaimed nerdy husband Chris by her side.
Although it may seem like it's all rainbows and woodland creatures for this team, they're prepared to do whatever it takes to win - even if it means using their sweetness to sneak past the competition.
Known for spontaneously bursting into song, this dynamic duo would use the prize money for helping others, as well as setting up their futures.

What are you looking forward to the least on The Amazing Race Australia?
Chris: I'm really concerned about getting lost. I get lost around my neighbourhood and around shopping centres. I am highly reliant on technology to help.
What would you do with the prize money?
Aleisha: Get a cottage for Chris and I so we can finally have our first baby - we really want to start our family. I also want to start an animal rescue farm and take in unwanted pets and farm animals
