The Amazing Race Wiki

Judy Bowe and Therese Mills[1] are a team of Nuns on The Amazing Race Australia 4.

They were known for praying during both of the legs they raced and for particularly enjoying the water flyboarding roadblock on the first leg. In the second leg they stopped to pray at the Demilitarized Zone for an extended period of time and struggled through the drone flight detour for 90 minutes. This unfortunately put them in last place (though they did finally complete the drone challenge after a short prayer). The nuns were able to catch up Femi & Nick and had better coordination rowing the boat through the rapids. They were unable to maintain their narrow lead in a footrace to the Pit Stop however and and were eliminated second, checking in just half a minute later.

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 1.5 km and running 17 km 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 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.

Get to know Judy, 53[]

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.

Get to know Therese, 45[]

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.
