Mary Lenig and Maria "Peach" Krebs are a team of Sisters on The Amazing Race 2.
Mary and Peach hold the distinction as the only all-female team to win a leg without a Fast Forward for the first six seasons. Despite her and her sister's doubts coming into the race, Peach demonstrated herself a surprisingly adept racer, but a series of small mistakes in Hong Kong caused her to be hit hard by fatigue, and she forced Mary to stop racing, putting them out in 6th place.

- “We're the perfect Team because we're so opposite that we balance each other out.”
Sisters Mary and Peach have done quite a bit of traveling together in the past, usually when Mary forces Peach to go so that she can grow as a person. As a Team, they're a study in opposites. Whereas Peach prefers 5 Star hotels and Gucci, Mary likes backpacking and dirt. Mary insists that "Peach likes to shower, but I don't."
Peach is a bit concerned about the rigors ahead in THE AMAZING RACE. Before applying, she had never ever put on a backpack; the first time she did, she fell over backwards. In public, this Team tends to attract attention: "Whenever we are together, people stare at us and ask us what are we doing, because we are causing so much chaos. When we tell them we are sisters, they are in shock!"
