Kenneth Edward "Ken" Greene[1] and Tina Hunter Stewart Greene[3] are a Separated team on The Amazing Race 13.

The two came into the race looking to reconcile their marriage after Ken had cheated on Tina. They formed a race-long alliance with Nick & Starr on the first leg, with the two teams agreeing to share information and work together, allowing the alliance win every leg of the race, except for one. However, Ken & Tina's relationship problems continued to haunt them throughout the race, with Ken being frustrated by Tina's constant nagging, and Tina being annoyed whenever Ken would not listen to her. Despite their problems, they made it to the final leg, where they frequently traded the lead with Nick & Starr, only for their former allies to build a small lead that Ken & Tina could not make up, resulting in them finishing in 2nd place. At the Finish Line, Ken asked Tina to give their marriage a second chance, presenting her their wedding rings, which she gladly accepted.
