Tamara Reichelt and Matías Franchini are a Married team and the Official Winners of The Amazing Race en Discovery Channel 1.

One of the strongest teams of their season they seemed powerful never getting out of the podium in every leg, with every time they won getting more and even more cockier, with Tamara insulting almost every team they passed. All their ego and pride they had, crashed down in the 9th leg where Tamara decided to switch detours and getting a bad taxi making Matías angry at her to the point of throwing their backpacks in frustration in public areas. However they were spared that leg after Anna & Rodrigo got U-Turned with Tamara telling them "You deserved it" while leaving the detour area. These fights continued throughout the next leg with Matías raging at Tamara for consonantly not listening to him. Despite all of this they reached the final leg where they decided to not fight and cooperate with each other giving them the ultimate win.
