The Amazing Race Wiki

Richard "Rich" Kuo and Dominique "Dom" Jones are a team of Motivational Speakers on The Amazing Race 34.

Rich & Dom generally placed near the back of the pack due to Rich constantly having to both drive and navigate, as Dom admitted that she was not good at either. This finally caught up with them during the Megaleg in Italy where a day of difficulty navigating, combined with Dom struggling with the second Roadblock, led to their elimination in 10th place.

Rich Kuo and Dom Jones, motivational speakers from Huntington Beach, California.

Rich, 32, is a life coach. Dom, 35, is a gym owner. The two have been partners for three years and, true to their vocations, hope to serve as a motivational light to both the viewers and the world at large. The pair hopes Dom's social game will take them far, as her self-proclaimed "merfairy" vibe will hopefully make the win far from mythical.
