ProfileEdit

Retrieved from CBS.com[1]

We share a close and powerful bond that most people lucky to experience in their life-time. We're more than brothers; we're best friends that share a bond that cannot be weakened by time, distance, or any other outside force.

Despite their incredibly close relationship, identical twins Shola and Doyin haven't really traveled together much, so neither knows exactly what to expect during THE AMAZING RACE.

They decided to team up for the Race partly to put their relationship to the test. Shola adds, "The idea of being able to travel all over the world, while competing on a worldwide stage for $1 million, and to do it all with my twin brother, is way too enticing for me to pass up." Going into the Race, both feel that the experience will strengthen their relationship.
