One can hardly doubt that these first cousins are as close as brothers, having grown up together and now, bunk as roomies who hang out all the time. Their strong bond extends to a shared taste for fashion and each other's clothes (they turned up in each other's clothes for their audition video). They even dated the same girl! Yet, they can appear as different as night and day, for Sahil is quiet by nature while Manas is an exuberant chatterbox.

Older cousin Sahil is an aspiring actor while the chatty Manas is no stranger to reality shows, having emerged first runner up in a 2009 reality series Rakhi Ka Swayamwar, India's answer to The Bachelorette.

Not having travelled much out of India, joining The Amazing Race Asia is their ticket to exploring the world beyond. Will they conquer, or be conquered?
