They were known for praying during both of the legs they raced. This unfortunately put them last when they stopped to pray at the Demilitarized Zone during the second leg. While the nuns were able to catch up Femi & Nick, they were unable to beat them in a footrace to the Pit Stop and and were eliminated second.

The Nuns, New South Wales
They’re ditching the habit and praying for a miracle!
Missionaries of God's Love Sisters, Judy and Therese have been friends for over 20 years and are ready to show Australia what nuns are made of. Don’t let these nuns fool you. Judy is incredibly fit, swimming 1.5km and running 17km a week, while Therese’s preferred mode of transport is a nonmotorised scooter!
While these ladies are committed to God above all else, they are experienced travellers, having ticked off Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and the Philippines together.
These nuns on the run are hardly intimidated by the other contestants, stating that their secret weapon will be having the Big Fella upstairs on their side.

What’s the best place you’ve ever visited and why? Any of the places I’ve gone on mission. Meeting the people is incredibly inspiring because they are so joyful and happy, even though they have nothing!
Do you have any travel horror stories? I once got chased by warriors in Papua New Guinea.
What’s the best part of travelling with your teammate? She’s fun, adventurous, at times a little crazy and we know each-other well.

What country or place do you hope not to visit on The Amazing Race Australia and why? Israel, because I would hate to go there in a rush, I’d want to stop and pray for days not run around.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Amazing Race Australia? To do The Amazing Race would be to achieve the challenge of a life-time. Where else do you get to do so many crazy impossible challenges all over the world in a short time?
What do you think will be your biggest advantage or strength in the race? I can pray for endurance, perseverance, and courage when I don’t have any left.
