Joseph Meadows and Monica Cayce are a Dating team on The Amazing Race 9.

They were the only team that could regularly keep up with BJ & Tyler and Eric & Jeremy. They tried to establish themselves as a strong adventurous couple similar to Kris & Jon early on, but thanks to a combination of their sour attitudes, constant bickering, and a contempt for the fan-favorite team and eventual winners, they were seen as anything but. Ultimately, Monica's meltdown during the pot-carrying Detour in Thailand cost them a spot in the Final 3, and left them in 4th.

Joseph & Monica have been dating for the past three years. This fun-loving couple met at a local bar in Fayetteville, Arkansas during college when Joseph claims he "just about broke his neck when Monica walked through the door." After a brief separation for a few months, they missed each other tremendously and decided to give their relationship a second try. They've been together ever since.

Joseph describes himself as confident and funny, while Monica is independent and tenacious. Born and raised in the South, the couple shares a love of country music, wakeboarding and traveling. Joseph's proudest accomplishment has been building and selling his first home.

Although Monica's primary motivation for taking part on THE AMAZING RACE is to pay off her student loans, both she and Joseph are eager to take part in an experience that will bond them for life.
