Mickey Henry and Pete Schmalz are a team of Best Friends and the Official Winners of The Amazing Race Canada 2.

They rarely fought with each other, or with anyone else, and goofed off constantly. They spent a lot of time in the middle of the pack, never winning a leg, yet never struggling either. In the finale, their experience in with rafting paid off when they were able to overtake Natalie & Meaghan in the Ottawa River Rafting task, giving them a lead that they never gave up, allowing them their only leg win as well as the Race itself.

Pet Peeve about Teammate: "He sings songs he doesn't know the words to over and over again…like, learn the words or don't sing the song. Jeez!"

These best friends are most at home in their scenic locale of Muskoka, Ont., located a little more than 200 kilometres north of Toronto. "It's kind of hard to pin point [the exact location] because we live, like, in the middle of the woods," says Mickey. He and his best bud Pete have been best friends for so long they can't even remember how they first met. Their lifelong friendship and "calm under pressure" attitudes make them top competitors this season, according to them. Mickey and Pete believe life is an adventure that always works out. They live life by having fun and being carefree, "Kill 'em with kindness," said Pete. The friends share a love for extreme sports and have sustained many injuries while pursuing wakeboarding and other adventurous activities. One of their proudest accomplishments is the design and build of What Wake Park in Muskoka, a water-sport park run on a cable system that Mickey created and operates in the summer. The guys want to compete on 'The Amazing Race Canada' before entering a challenging work force in hopes that their winnings will bring them security in paying off massive school debts. They expect that people will judge them on their appearance and are fine with that, so long as no one knows that these small town boys have strength, speed, and outdoor skills that may outmatch their competition.

Motto: "Long hair, don't care."
