Tramel Raggs and Talicia Raggs are a Brother/Sister team on The Amazing Race 3.

Known for their over-the-top reactions, Tramel and Talicia ended up being eliminated after Talicia struggled with their wave rider in the second leg Detour, putting them alone on the last ferry to Cozumel, coming in at 11th place.


Tramel and Talicia have a close relationship, but like any other siblings, they have disagreements. Originally from Gary, Indiana, Talicia, 29, now resides in Los Angeles and works as an assistant to a sports agent, while Tramel, 22, is a senior at Indiana University. Since they don't see each other everyday, they are excited to be able to spend more time together and compete for $1 million.

This competitive brother and sister Team describe themselves as "the male/female counterpart of the same person, we are so alike. We like the same things, eat the same food, share the same thoughts and make the same mistakes." They believe that with Tramel's intuition and Talicia's street smarts they will be able to win.

Since they're seven years apart in age, they have also lived very different lives. Talicia has fought and struggled through everything, while Tramel has coasted through life on his wits and charms. He scored a 1300 on his S.A.T. without any preparation, while she got 1100 and stayed up many long nights studying. Talicia feels that Tramel takes the easy way out of things and hopes that the Race will give her brother a taste of the real world.

Talicia's most valuable item in her backpack is her noise-reducing headsets, which "will drown out the nonsense of the world," while Tramel's is a picture of his family and, of course, his clothes.

Talicia's birth date is November 1 and Tramel's is December 3.
