Mark Munoz and Michael Munoz are a team of Brothers/Stuntmen on The Amazing Race 14.
Though they had a lot of confidence, their inability to stay on course caused them to fall to the back of the pack a lot. They have the dubious honor of being the most frequently penalized team in the show's history. Though their first set of penalties only cost them a leg win, their second set, a pair of 2-hour penalties for using personal possessions to settle cab fairs, put them so far behind that they never saw another team after that, and they finished 5th.

This Team of brothers has been competing – against everyone else and each other – their entire life. Standing at 4' 9" these married fathers are ready to prove they have what it takes to win one-million dollars.
Mark makes his living as a stuntman and occasionally works as a jockey. This father of two is looking forward to running the Race with his brother in order to continue building on their relationship. Mark believes that the biggest advantage he and his teammate have over their competition is their fitness level and ability to make split second decisions, a skill they have mastered after years of working in physically and mentally demanding fields. Mark enjoys skiing, biking and golfing and describes himself as short, athletic and creative.
Michael is looking forward to working on communication issues he and his brother have had with each other in the past. Michael, also a father of two, splits his time between Maui and Los Angeles. His favorite hobbies include playing music and surfing. He claims that the biggest difference between the two is that he is the surfer and Mark is the skier. Both have worked extensively in films and television including the feature films Van Helsing, Spider-Man, and Seabiscuit.
They chose similar paths in their lives and, after years of surfing big waves and racing horses around a track, they're eager to run the Race of a lifetime with one another for a shot at a million dollars.
