After arriving on the later flight to China, Vipul & Arti constantly found themselves languishing at the back of the pack. They then struggled with directing their motorcycle driver to the next Route Marker, causing them to fall to last place, from which they never recovered. They placed 11th.

Vipul & Arti are Race enthusiasts from Windermere, Florida, who also happen to be the first Indian-American Team to ever compete on THE AMAZING RACE. Happily married, the couple met in their teens when Arti would come over to Vipul's house to do Tae Bo with his sister.
Vipul was born in India before moving to Florida. He currently works in sales and claims that the biggest difference between him and his wife is that he is strong-willed while Arti is a pushover. Vipul describes himself as fun, witty and hyper. He admittedly can be overzealous at times.
Arti, a nutritional educator, prides herself on her ability to calm Vipul down when he gets too excited, a skill she will most likely need to call upon during the Race. She considers herself to be adventurous, dependable and fun-loving.
Vipul & Arti are well-traveled and speak several languages. Their primary motivation for competing on THE AMAZING RACE is to see the world with each other and meet new people.
