During their time on the race, they frequently found themselves getting lost due to their poor navigation skills, placing them in the lower half more often than not. Despite this, they did excel in tasks which helped them stay in the race. This unfortunately wouldn't be enough in the tenth leg, where Nick struggled to complete the sandal Roadblock. And despite having the fewest incorrect answers on the quiz, they were not able to finish before the second-to-last team's penalty was up, earning them a 5th place finish.

Femi 23 & Nick, 23
Nurses, New South Wales
Working in a high-pressure, fast paced environment is second nature to psychiatric nurses Femi and Nick. The best mates turned co-workers know that they have the mental and physical stamina that it takes to conquer the race… and the means to getting an IV drip if they’re feeling a bit flat.
When they’re not in scrubs, they’re whipping clients into shape at their personal training business in Sydney. Both Femi and Nick come from large, happy Nigerian families and are passionate about personal development and helping others.
Cool, calm and collected, the boys believe they can take a logical approach to the race and charm their way through the rest!
