Eric Sanchez and Jeremy Ryan are a team of Friends on The Amazing Race 9.

Eric & Jeremy came into the race with laid-back attitudes, simply looking to flirt with female teams and win the million dollar prize. Though they flirted with Danielle & Dani until the latter team's elimination, they also emerged as a dominant force, finishing in either 1st or 2nd in all but one leg. They also developed a friendly rivalry with BJ & Tyler, whose academic background they feared. When both teams went head to head in the final Roadblock just before the Finish Line, Eric & Jeremy's fears of BJ & Tyler's intelligence materialized, as the final task was a mental one that allowed their rivals to surge ahead and win, consigning Eric & Jeremy to 2nd place.

Profile

Retrieved from CBS.com

Jeremy & Eric, best friends from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, met while running college track at Johnson County Community College. Both are admittedly cocky, very competitive and strong athletes. They are avid volleyball players who frequently compete in local tournaments.

Sarcastic and patient, Jeremy is well-traveled and ready for the adventure of a lifetime. He works as a valet and is hoping the Race will help him to make something of his life.

Eric, who works as a waiter and a bartender, has little experience traveling outside of the United States. A two-time NJCAA Track and Field All American in the pole vault, Eric describes himself as being athletic and outgoing. His biggest pet peeve about his teammate is that Jeremy won't take criticism.

The former collegiate athletes hope their physical abilities will help carry them past the competition to the $1 million prize.[1]
