Dwesmond "Dwes" Wiggan-Dann and Katherine Dann are a team of Kimberley Cousins on The Amazing Race Australia 5.

Initially the first team eliminated but returned back due to Alex & Jack forfeiting the race in Leg 3. Their performances improved much including a 2nd-place finish. But in Coober Pedy, Dwes would make a huge mistake by painting the wrong letter in the Roadblock which allowed the trailing Holly & Dolor to catch up, as well their golf-ball being caught by the Power Couple. And while Holly & Dolor seemed to lost direction, they checked in after them and were again eliminated.

Cousins by blood, friends by choice. Although this deadly duo from The Kimberley's are known for butting heads, cousins Dwes and Katherine are living proof that opposites work well together. While Katherine is the brawns, Dwes' confidence and strategic skills will make this team an unstoppable force!

Mother of one and AFLW player Katherine is a quiet achiever, who encourages and supports young women in her community to reach for the stars. With an infectious smile, Dwes believes their biggest advantage will be other teams underestimating them.

Both Dwes and Katherine are Aboriginal and want to be positive role models for their community. They hope that by running the Race, they'll inspire their community and young Aboriginal Australians to dream big.
