Dave Gregg and Cherie Gregg are a team of Married Clowns on The Amazing Race 20.

Although mostly racing at the back of the pack during their short time in the race, Dave & Cherie regularly maintained positive attitudes as would be expected of clowns. Though they seemed to be set to survive the second leg when they got on the second of three buses to Buenos Aires, a fortuitous accident involving the bus suddenly left the four teams on it battling to avoid last place. Dave then struggled at the subsequent Roadblock, ensuring the married clowns' elimination in 10th place.

Dave

Age: 44
Hometown: New Port Richey, Fla.
Connection to your teammate: Married
Current occupation: Ambassador of Laughter
Describe what you do: My wife and I work for Ringling Bros. We visit cities and bring educational programs and laughter to schools, hospitals, libraries and kids who might not get a chance to see the show.
How will these skills help you win The Race? As ambassadors of laughter we understand the international language of comedy and how it can connect our world.
Three words to describe you: Lucky, friendly and easy going.
Favorite hobbies: Geocaching, playing games and sight seeing.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Tom Hanks
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Lucille Ball
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Having the courage to walk into a clown college audition for the second time. It changed my life forever.
What scares you most about traveling? Injuries or possibly even worse.
What excites you most about traveling? Seeing the places I've read about in National Geographic.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: She sometimes thinks she know everything. Nine out of 10 times she does, but I still like to argue for the 10%.
Pet peeve about your teammate: She can be painfully honest.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Japan, because the culture and history is very intriguing.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? This is a dream come true. I want to celebrate our 20 year anniversary running around the world and having the adventure of a lifetime!

Cherie

Age: 44
Hometown: New Port Richey, Fla.
Connection to your teammate: Married
Current occupation: Ambassador of Laughter
Describe what you do: As ambassadors of laughter, my husband and I get to bring free programs to schools, libraries, hospitals, etc. We bring a little circus to kids who might not be able to attend the big show while getting the word out on TV, radio and newspapers that Ringling Bros is coming to town.
How will these skills help you win The Race? Clowning is a universal language. Plus, we're used to working and traveling together. We have a "show must go on" attitude!
Three words to describe you: Spoiled, logical and friendly.
Favorite hobbies: Geocaching, Harry Potter books and sight seeing on days off while traveling for work.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Lucille Ball
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Forrest Gump
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Even though I never got into Ringling Bros. Clown College, I was able to not only perform in the show for five years, but become one of the two full-time "Ambassadors of Laughter" for the Greatest Show on Earth.
What scares you most about traveling? Being separated from Dave without knowing how to find him.
What excites you most about traveling? Finally getting to see and experience more of the world.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: I don't usually speak up unless I know I'm right. We would save a lot of time if Dave would just listen to me the first time. 98% of the time we do things my way so why bother arguing about it?
Pet peeve about your teammate: When he says he will do something and doesn't – or he forgets.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Australia. I've always wanted to go, but it is so far away and very expensive. I've been told it's really beautiful.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I think it will be a great way for us to celebrate 20 years of marriage and create memories of a lifetime.
