Sidney "Sid" Pierruci[1] and Ashley "Ash" Ruscoe[2] are a Dating Team on The Amazing Race Australia 4

A controversial team; they made several enemies out of the gate when they misled other teams after mistakenly going down Namsan instead going to the tower. Throughout the race, they were known for manipulating other teams. This led resulted them being U-Turned by Jasmin & Jerome and being stuck at the Intersection due to them. After a few inter-team conflicts during their final legs, they were eliminated due to a penalty when they sped above the speed limit to pass Femi & Nick and Viv & Joey

There’s no denying Bondi couple, Sid and Ash, enjoy the finer things in life. From luxurious holidays to fine dining, this fiery team love an upgrade and they don’t care who knows it. As former elite swimmers, they are no strangers to hard work or a 4am alarm, and let nothing and no one get in their way.

Having dated for three years, the couple believe their greatest strength is that they compensate for each other’s weaknesses. While Ash can make decisions quickly, based off her instincts, Sid is calmer and more strategic.

Both seasoned travellers, Sid and Ash have explored the USA, Italy, France, Spain, South Africa and Indonesia to name a few.
