Michelle Godlewski, Sharon Godlewski, Christine Godlewski, and Tricia Godlewski are a team of Sisters on The Amazing Race: Family Edition.
They were the first all-female team to win multiple legs and back-to-back legs, two seasons before Dustin & Kandice did both. They also made up an hour deficit to win the first leg, and had the best finishing average for most of the season. They fell in 4th place when they couldn't stop bickering, mostly due to Christine's mood swings and inability to cooperate with her sisters, and struggled with the teepee building Detour.
The Godlewski family is a team of sisters from Des Plaines, Illinois. The four siblings, from oldest to youngest, are Michelle, Sharon, Christine and Tricia. Each sister has her own personality, which might cause some roadblocks of their own along the way. They were known as "The Desperate Housewives" by other teams.
Michelle, 42, is the most direct of the group. She describes herself as excitable and competitive.
Sharon, 39, works as an insurance claim consultant. She says she's alluring and personable and admits that she thrives on challenges.
Christine, 37, is a bit obsessive. A homemaker and the mother of four, Christine's biggest pet peeve about herself is not being able to defend herself when she gets into an argument with her siblings.
Tricia, the youngest at 26, is always forced to play the role of peacemaker. Tricia is hoping to show her big sisters that she has what it takes to endure THE AMAZING RACE.
All four sisters live within 30 minutes of one another. Although they have traveled extensively together, the Race will surely put their relationships to the test as they embark on a much different kind of family vacation.
