The Amazing Race Wiki

Megan Baker and Heidi Heidel are a team of Roommates on The Amazing Race 7.

Largely struggling near the back of the pack during their short time in the race, Megan & Heidi were relegated to the second flight to Chile during the second leg and immediately hit bad luck when they got a slow taxi driver. They found themselves racing to avoid elimination against their friends Brian & Greg, which the roommates narrowly lost, resulting in their elimination in 10th place.

Megan & Heidi are roommates from Oak Park, California. Megan works as a fashion designer and Heidi is a full-time mother. Both are extremely competitive and not afraid to take risks. These California beauties decided to sign up for the Race just for the challenge and competition.

Heidi grew up in Flint, Michigan, with several stops along the way before she landed in Los Angeles. She is a licensed makeup artist, but works as a full-time mother for her proudest accomplishment, her daughter. Heidi describes herself as athletic, playful and feisty and has specific plans for her prize money if they win the Race.

Megan grew up all around California before settling in Los Angeles. She works as a fashion designer and enjoys drawing, sewing and painting. Megan has never traveled outside the United States and has an extreme phobia of flying. Another motivation for Megan's participation in the Race is to face that fear and put it behind her.

Despite their limited traveling experience, Megan & Heidi are convinced they can rely on each other and on their competitive spirit to outperform the other racers.[1]
