Shana Wall and Jennifer McCall are a team of Friends on The Amazing Race 12.

The two friends had contrasting approaches to the race, with Jennifer preferring a calm, conservative strategy, while Shana preferred a more cutthroat one, which included using the U-Turn on another team against Jennifer's wishes in the fourth leg. Their differences finally took a toll on their ability to communicate with each other in the following leg, as they spent most of it arguing with each other, which hindered their performance and dropped them to last place, finishing 7th.

Don't let their good looks fool you. This all-female Team is eager to do whatever it takes to bring home the $1 million prize. Shana and Jennifer met six years ago and have been friends ever since.

Shana currently makes a living as an actress and TV host of an online cooking show. She describes herself as loyal, passionate and spontaneous. Her proudest accomplishment came when she toured as a back-up dancer/singer for Luis Miguel. She has lived abroad, is well traveled and feels right at home on the road.

Jennifer works as a legal assistant and stock market researcher. When asked how she and her Teammate are most different, Jennifer claims that she is a bitch, while Shana is simply bitchy. When asked how they are similar, she responds "we care about what we look like and we're both intellectuals." She describes herself as competitive, intelligent and determined. Jennifer is also well traveled and is looking forward to hitting the road again.

These ladies are both very competitive and convinced they have what it takes to become the first all-female Team to win the Race.[1]
