Upon their casting announcement, many fans expected them to be the "fighting couple" of the season. But with the exception of a couple of legs, they were shown spending far less time fighting and more time trying to work together on the race. This resulted in them finishing in the middle of the pack for the most part, with two leg wins under their belt. Ultimately, fatigue would do them in, starting with Leilani getting injured during the Waterski [[Roadblock]] in Penticton.

Dujean Williams and Leilani Ross are a team of Exes on The Amazing Race Canada 3.

Upon their casting announcement, many fans expected them to be the "fighting couple" of the season. But with the exception of a couple of legs, they were shown spending far less time fighting and more time trying to work together on the race. This resulted in them finishing in the middle of the pack for the most part, with two leg wins under their belt. Ultimately, fatigue would do them in, starting with Leilani getting injured during the Waterski Roadblock in Penticton. This would push them into last place, where they would spend the rest of the leg bickering with each other. They would never recover, and with Nick & Matt U-Turning them, Dujean & Leilani would be left out in 5th place.

LeilaniEdit

Age: 24 (July 19, 1990)
Occupation: Unemployed (Claims to be professional dancer on the race)
Current City: Toronto
Hometown: Halifax
Strengths: Determined, positive, and a quick learner.
Fears/ Phobias: Spiders

Pet Peeve about Teammate: "D is too laid back."

Friends and exes, Leilani and Dujean bring confidence, spunk, and big personalities to the race. These two professional dancers met while watching friends in a dance battle on television and immediately connected. They dated for a while but realized being friends works best for them.

These two are energetic and enthusiastic and they imagine their team walk-on song would be Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What" or "Pump It" by the Black Eyed Peas.

Leilani is a sharp-witted musical theatre performer and hip hop dancer while Dujean is one of the best krumpers in Canada. His stage name is Ruthless, and he says that's how he'll approach the race. Dujean's dance crew, "Buck N' Flavor," is renowned in the Toronto krump and hip hop dance scenes.

The pair is used to highly competitive environments given their dance background, which they believe will make them fierce competitors. They are quick at picking up choreography and often have to prove themselves on the spot. Leilani and Dujean feel that if the race involves a dance challenge, their fellow racers should be worried!

Leilani has lost both her parents, and Dujean lost his mother to cancer when he was 18. This strengthened their bond and encouraged these positive, charismatic friends to live life to the fullest. These traumatic and life changing events give them a level of determination and strength that cannot be surpassed. As they both put it, "We're in it to win it! We have total focus and eyes on the prize."

Hoping to dance their way to the finish line with "flavour," both Leilani and Dujean want to win "The Amazing Race Canada" so they can build a dance studio in order to give back to kids in their community.
