Treena Ley and Tennille Dorrington are a team of Twin Sisters on The Amazing Race Canada 1.

In the first leg, they had navigation issues at Lake Okanagan, putting them behind the other teams. Even though they would recover enough to beat Jamie & Pierre in a footrace to the Pit Stop, they would be eliminated anyway after receiving a 30 minute penalty, as they made the most basic mistake a team can, failure to read the clue.

Identical twin sisters, Treena and Tennille describe themselves as "very competitive and very entertaining." Inseparable since birth, these sisters have done everything together through life. "Having a sister and best friend that share the same size, can read your mind, communicate without even talking, and that has been there for every significant moment of your life is amazing," explains Tennille.

It's not always easygoing with these high spirited twins, who clash like any sisters. They couldn't even make it through their audition video without disputing a few points. "When we are getting along, we can conquer the world," they agree, "but if we are fighting...look out and take cover!"

Although Treena describes her sister as a "control freak" and Tennille says her sister is "very impatient and a bit of a diva," the twins overcame these concerns to audition for THE AMAZING RACE CANADA. After a trip to Calgary in 2012, they vowed to visit every province in Canada together, a goal that might be closer than they ever imagined!

Motto: "You can't spell TWIN without WIN!"
How will they plan to win The Race: "We plan to maximize on our individual strengths, think, and listen to each other, observe, plan, fast! Don't come last!"
Number one roadblock as team: "We both have to be right and in control. Our stubbornness is usually the root of most of our problems."
