Jonathan Baker and Victoria Alynette Fuller are a team of Married Entrepreneurs on The Amazing Race 6.
The two had a rocky relationship throughout the Race, constantly engaging in arguments and berating each other, including in Germany when Jonathan infamously shoved Victoria after they lost a footrace to the Pit Stop for first place on fifth leg. Nevertheless, the two consistently finished near the top of the pack for much of their time in the Race. Their dysfunctional relationship would eventually lead to their downfall, however, as their bickering caused them to misread a clue in Ethiopia, dropping them behind the other teams and resulting in their elimination in 6th place.

Jonathan & Victoria were set up on a blind date seven years ago, and have been married for three years. They reside in Los Angeles, where Jonathan is an entrepreneur who owns a spa as well as other business ventures, and Victoria is a model/ pop artist painter. They decided to go on the Race in hopes of getting their relationship back on track after many grueling discussions about starting a family that have taken a toll on their marriage.
Jonathan describes himself as having a "type A" personality, while Victoria says she is resourceful. They hope this combination will help them be victorious on the Race. One of the challenges for them on the Race is going to be trusting each other's instincts and putting their bickering aside.
Victoria recalls that one of the worst moments in their relationship was when they had a fight on a trip to Miami and their entire argument was recorded after her cell phone accidentally dialed her mother's answering machine.Their primary reason for doing THE AMAZING RACE is to win. The $1 million prize comes in a close second. Although both agree that their biggest fear is not being able to speak the languages, they look forward to experiencing new cultures and people.
