The Amazing Race Wiki

Stan Turek and Wayne Marino are a team of Bodybuilders on The Amazing Race Australia 5.

The second stowaway team, joined from Leg 10. Their horrendous sense of direction haunted them throughout the race. Whilst things looked better, the second set of Queensland legs would put them behind starting from both struggling in the Brains task, and began their consecutive last place finishes. Despite the Salvage by the cowboys, they lost the footrace to the Pit stop in Brisbane and were eliminated.

Strong, confident and a lot smarter than they'd like people to think, everything is a contest for these buff mates. Both are fathers and want to win the Race to make their sons proud, and prove they have the brains to match their brawn.
