Kevin Ng and Jennifer "Jenn" Lee are a team on The Amazing Race 29.
From the start, they seemed to have been one of the better matches as they never argued once despite their frequent struggles. As soon as they hit Panama City, they went in a downward spiral. They got lost twice, and by they time they reached the Detour, it was too dark to continue. Despite that, they made it to the mat in 10th, but they had to serve a 2 hour penalty for being unable to complete the Detour, allowing the only trailing team, Liz & Michael, to catch up and send them home.

Hometown: San Diego
Current occupation: Physio/Certified Athletic Trainer/O-PAC at the USA Rugby Olympic Training Center.
Describe what you do: Care, prevention and rehabilitation of elite athletes.
3 words to describe you: Long hair, happy and aerodynamic.
Favorite hobbies: Surfing, snorkeling, diving and anything water. Basically a mermaid but a man version, a merman. Sometimes I grow legs and enjoy camping, rock climbing and hanging with my dog.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?: Finishing my master's program allowing me to work with our Olympic Rugby Team.
What scares you most about traveling?: The middle seat on the airplane. It's a nonstop elbow war on both sides. Claim it early and spread those wings.
What excites you most about traveling?: Seeing everything and anything new. It's my first time traveling outside the U.S. and I want to see and eat everything. Rumor has it that the toilet flushes counter clockwise in some places. Need to verify that fact.
What qualities do you hope your partner has?: Easy going but competitive, composed and positive with good communication. And has an extra pair of socks. I didn't bring any.
What qualities will be hard for you to put up with in a partner?: Negativity and complaining. Use all that energy and focus on the next job at hand. Also, not being able to push their body to the limits and working outside their comfort zone.
What do you think will be the biggest challenge you and your teammate face?: Driving. I'm going to say it, but Asians and cars sometimes don't mix.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why?: Fiji, anywhere on the beach. The beaches are beautiful and I'll excel in the water if it's swimming or with a board.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)?: Meeting great people even though they'll be my frien-enimes on the Race. Opening my experiences further and seeing the world and having fun at the same time.
Hometown: Palos Verdes, Calif.
Current occupation: Professional Model
Describe what you do: Hang out in front of cameras :)
3 words to describe you: Spontaneous, confident and weird.
Favorite hobbies: Swimming in any sort of body of water, running down the beach, hiking with my boxer, Bronson, and anything outdoorsy or crazy, I'm in!
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?: Besides work stuff like being featured in Esquire and winning Miss Korea California, camping out in the Amazon Jungle for three days and building my own "tent" which consisted of a piece of plastic above my head and a piece of plastic on the ground...no walls. I was eaten alive, but, hey, I survived!
What scares you most about traveling?: Losing my passport. It's happened before...was a complete nightmare! Good thing I have both a U.S. and Australian passport!
What excites you most about traveling?: Getting to see what else is out there and really experiencing life.
What qualities do you hope your partner has?: I hope my partner is strong, smart and shares the same passion to run and conquer the Race. Also, I hope he's a dude. I tend to work better with males, especially in competitive situations like the Race, because our level of thinking is similar, to the point and less emotional.
What qualities will be hard for you to put up with in a partner?: If they don't share the same drive to win and to travel. Besides that, I'm easy to work with and always take into consideration the other person's perspective/opinions...unless they are dumb, then no. Just kidding!
What do you think will be the biggest challenge you and your teammate face?: Being on the same page. Also anything that may involve being trapped because I'm legit claustrophobic.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why?: South Africa because I've been DYING to go diving with great white sharks! It's an absolute dream of mine!!!!! They are my favorite animals and I swear I probably was a great white in my past life...
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)?: Make unforgettable memories! Just being given the chance to run the Race is a serious accomplishment in itself!
