Dylan Ellis and Kwame Osei[1] are a team of Friends & Coaches on The Amazing Race Canada: Heroes Edition.

A considerable physical threat and self-admittedly a not-so-intellectual threat, they tended to race in the middle of the pack, generally finishing anywhere from third to fifth. However, they maintained cool-headed and cooperative mentalities through the entire race, as well as a strong drive and determination to not let their mentorees down, which eventually helped them pick up a leg win in Mexico and, later on, a spot in the final three. However, they lost time early in the final leg when Kwame struggled with the first Roadblock and the two were never able to catch up with the rest of the pack, resulting in them finishing in 3rd place.

Dylan and Kwame are best friends who first met playing on rival football teams in university. They reunited in Fort McMurray in 2012 where their passion for sport helps them impact the lives of youth through their Northern Elite Football organization and mentorship program. This powerhouse team prides themselves on being the role models they never had growing up. Dylan's stepdad left when he was only seven, leaving him to help raise his two younger brothers and become a father figure at a young age which laid the foundation for what would later become a career of mentoring youth. Kwame used football to transform his future, playing in university and then professionally with the Toronto Argonauts.
