Inga Lederhaus and Tiharna McGregor are a team of Pageant Models on The Amazing Race: Australia v New Zealand.
Despite starting off the first leg in a poor position, getting stuck in the final group leaving the Cardboard Cathedral to start the second day, they were were safely positioned in the second group at the river rafting challenge until they made a fatal mistake. They drove off without their half-ring, the item that had been the goal of the rafting task, not realizing they were supposed to take it with them until they had completed the forty minute drive to Rata Peaks Station. Going back to retrieve the clue allowed the lost and trailing Sally & Tyson to pass them, eliminating them in 10th place.
These friends have conquered the catwalk with their beauty, do they have what it takes to be crowned winners in this competition?
Perth beauties, Inga (27) and Tiharna (26), met four years ago at a "Blondes v Brunettes" modeling competition and instantly became friends. The pageant models claim to be the full package. "We're the three B's: brainy, busty, brunettes," they say unanimously.
Inga is a CPA Accountant and is also tri-lingual while Tiharna works as a Personal Assistant to five stockbrokers. They're strategic, calculated and their only goal is to win. "We want to win; we're not in it for the experience," says Inga. Tiharna adds, "I don't do anything half-arsed in my life and I don't like being a loser."
The girls aren't worried about teams underestimating them. "I know exactly how they're going to perceive us, like we're just these dumb, weak idiots who don't know anything. Little do they know we've travelled, we're intellectual, we speak languages and we're street-smart." And on strategies they say: "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer."
