Jet Black and Dave Schram are a team of Best Friends on The Amazing Race Canada 1 and The Amazing Race Canada 7.[1]

In Season 1, despite being the obvious alpha male team coming in, this quickly became overshadowed by the fact that they were goofy. Their antics quickly became the most entertaining part of the season, while at the same time not hindering their racing ability at all, as they even won three legs in a row at one point. Despite being on the second shuttle into St. John's, they got a cab driver who was only on her fourth day on the job, which lost them their lead on the trailing teams, and then Dave struggled with the busker Roadblock, putting them out in 4th place.

Returning for Season 7, the duo was determined to be worthy of the honour of being chosen by the fans. They decided to approach the race with a more serious attitude and had a target on their backs for returning. Despite starting off as strong as the fans expected, they dropped from 2nd to last when they drove 80 kilometers in the wrong direction looking for the farm. They ultimately never made up the deficit, cutting their chance at redemption short.

"We have strengths that compliment each other's weaknesses," Dave says. "Where he often struggles, I frequently excel," adds Jet.

Friends urged Jet and Dave to apply for THE AMAZING RACE CANADA; they are the life of the party, no matter where they go. They met in high school when Jet started dating one of Dave's friends, and when Jet and the girl parted, the two remained friends. Since then the inseparable pair have traveled the world together and have been through thick and thin as best buddies.

Physically they are a lethal combination; Jet is a two-time Men's National Physique Champion, while Dave is a National Champion in Cheerleading. They also never miss an opportunity to joke around and know that they can be perceived as goofy – which they plan to use to their advantage. "In addition to our charm and good looks, we're both actually quite intelligent," says Jet. "We are as smart, if not smarter than the dolphin," adds Dave.

Of The Race the two agree, "We are excited to get to explore our great country that most Canadians never get the chance to see."

Motto: "We're like icebergs...10% above water, 90% below!"

How will they plan to win the Race: "Be ourselves and win...in a strategic manner."

Number one roadblock as team: "Getting along when things don't go our way, we're both control freaks."

These two best friends are no strangers to fans of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA. Known for their wild antics and dry humour, Jet and Dave appeared on the inaugural season of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, placing 4th overall. As viewer-favourites from Season 1, they were selected as Canada’s Choice team this season – as voted by fans across the country – to have a second chance at racing all over again. The inseparable pair have travelled the world together and have been through thick and thin. They will have the advantage of having done the Race before, but they will also rely on their physical abilities. As a firefighter, Jet needs to be strong at all times, and Dave is a national champion in cheerleading, which means he had to throw people in the air and have the muscles to catch them on the way down! Both are excited to have a second chance at making it to the finale mat and to challenge themselves once again on the Race of a lifetime.
