Lisa Hinds and Joni Glaze are a team of Sisters on The Amazing Race 9.

The sisters constantly trailed behind the younger, more physically-fit teams, just barely surviving the first leg. In the second leg, after already ending up on the last charter bus to Brotas, they had difficulty driving the manual transmission on their vehicle, slowing them down enough to be eliminated in 10th place.

Lisa & Joni are sisters who have lived apart from one another for almost 20 years. After their father passed away, Joni opted to stay in Texas with their mom, while Lisa moved to Florida. The sisters hope their experience on THE AMAZING RACE will help them to reconnect with one another and make up for lost time.

Lisa, who lives in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, is a mother of two and has been married for seven years. Several years ago, Lisa accomplished her longtime goal of opening her own art gallery. She's an avid artist who enjoys anything creative and describes herself as smart, determined and competitive.

Joni, who resides in Katy, Texas, is also the mother of two and has been married for 10 years. She has never traveled outside of the United States and is quite eager to see what the world has to offer. Funny and headstrong, Joni claims to be a people person who is much more patient than her teammate.

This outgoing twosome are loud, rambunctious, and each stand over six feet tall. If they win the $1 million prize, both Lisa & Joni admit that they would like to get some plastic surgery.[1][2]
