Geoff "Sticky" Stick and Sam Hay are a team of Flatmates on The Amazing Race Australia 2.

They would quickly become a force to be reckoned with, as they managed a large number of strong finishes within the first half of the season. However, their momentum would eventually die when they missed a flight out of France, and only the combination of Joseph & Grace's penalty and the leg being a double-leg would save them. However, they were eliminated on the next leg when they had navigation issues in Cuba, getting lost while looking for the crocodile farm, and wound up 7th.


Geoff, or "Sticky" to his mates, and Sam met at school in Launceston 12 years ago and have been best friends ever since.

These flatmates also compete together in the same cricket and football clubs – no mean feat given Sticky was born without a left forearm.

"Sticky's just an inspirational bloke. He's better than me at just about anything, including with the ladies!" says Sam.

And the boys are determined that nothing will hold them back on the race.

"I just want to prove to myself and anyone who's ever doubted me that my arm won't stop me from doing anything," explains Sticky.

"It's never held me back before and I don't see why it will now."

These sports-mad mates have both competed at an elite level. Sticky trained in javelin at the Australian Institute of Sport and is hoping to be selected in the Australian Paralympic team, while Sam has played grade cricket.

And look out ladies – both Sam and Sticky are single and on the lookout for love.

"It'd be great to find love on the show," says Sticky.

The boys believe their easygoing nature will also stand them in good stead on the race.

"I don't think we really have a weakness," says Sam. "Unless of course anything comes down to luck because we're unlucky as hell."
