Kent and Vyxsin

Name (Age): Kent Kaliber (35)

Hometown: Louisville, Ky., currently residing in Los Angeles, Calif.

Connection to your Teammate: Boyfriend

Current Occupation: Print and Runway Model

Previous Season/Result: Season 12/5th place

Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: My biggest mistake in our previous season was completely burning out the clutch of our car in Italy.

Most memorable moment from your first Race: Arriving at the magical masquerade village in Vilnius, Lithuania. Everyone there was dressed head to toe in mystical costumes. The costumes, the creativity and the decadence reminded me of the Sci-Fi and Comic-Con conventions that Vyxsin and I love to attend every year.

Favorite place you visited on your first season: India, I loved the frenetic energy and cascade of color in every direction. The kaleidoscopic fashion was surreal and the beautiful Indian belly dancers kept my spirits high.

Why do you want to run the Race again? I lost my dad very suddenly and unexpectedly this year. I want to run the Race as a tribute to him. A victory in this race will give my family some much needed good news.

How have you changed since the last time you competed? Vyxsin and I moved to L.A. and started modeling for our favorite designers.

People would be surprised to learn: Believe it or not, I'm NOT much of an outdoorsman. Before our first season, I had never been camping. It is very difficult to apply eyeliner in a tent. I don't have much interest in roughing it so to speak.

One location that you hope to go on this adventure: I hope to go to the most smoldering and humid Amazon Rainforest because Vyxsin in a pink and black bikini for an entire leg would be great motivation.

What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race again (other than winning one million dollars): I want to inspire our families. It's been a difficult year and this Race could be the much-needed healing that Vyxsin and I need.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Housekeeping is not one of Vyxsin's talents. Her house is a disorganized melting pot of garters, glitter and glam rock. I shudder to think about what the inside of her backpack will look like. There is no way I am letting her anywhere near our race fanny pack and passports!

What would you do if you won the million dollars? Go on a vacation!

Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: We are prepared physically but we need to work on getting our head in the game. We are going to focus more mentally.

Name (Age): Vyxsin Fiala (32)

Hometown: Louisville, Ky., but currently residing in Los Angeles, Calif.

Connection to your Teammate: Girlfriend

Current Occupation: Print and Runway Model

Previous Season/Result: Season 12/5th place

Biggest mistake you made in your previous season: I should have helped Kent get better prepared for stick-shift driving. He burnt the clutch in our vehicle in Italy, which turned out to be a one-way ticket to last place.

Most memorable moment from your first Race: Watching Kent pole vault into a muddy irrigation ditch in Amsterdam. He does not enjoy getting dirty! He looked like a miserable wet kitten as he crawled out of that ditch in his ruined outfit.

Favorite place you visited on your first season: Burkina Faso, Africa, the people were so kind and warm from the moment we stepped off the plane.

Why do you want to run the Race again? We have suffered the loss of a loved one since our first race. We need an uplifting experience at this point in our lives.

How have you changed since the last time you competed? Our experience on THE AMAZING RACE has opened so many doors for us! We have moved to Los Angeles to pursue our love of fashion, club life and new adventures.

What are you passionate about? Dancing, my teammate and my family.

People would be surprised to learn: I feel totally at home in the kitchen. I love to cook vegan food.

One location that you hope to go on this adventure: Australia, Kent would look adorable up in a tree cuddling with the koala bears.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Packing! We carry way too much with us. We need to pack lighter.

What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race again (other than winning one million dollars): We hope to inspire our families and to reconnect with each other after an extremely difficult year.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Kent is always "borrowing" (i.e. stealing) my eye-pencils and powders. I am constantly chasing him away from my make-up bag.

What would you do if you won the million dollars? If I won the million dollars I would take both of our families on a long vacation.

Any strategic changes you will make heading into this Race: We are going to try to form alliances with other teams instead of only focusing on ourselves. Working together with another team or two could propel us all to the final three.

Did they maybe go just a little overboard with the "dance" in the spirit detour?

LOL, and kept dancing around it instead of on it, they lost about 10 minutes doing that

Although they are good for a laugh or two, I won't cry when they go home.

Love that the Amazing Race choose 2 of the more obscure from the chart.

I give Kent props for knowing the Bi and Hg were Bismuth and Mercury.

He seemed to be the only one to know flat out which elements were represented by those symbols.

I used to take pride knowing all the elements...but I fell flat 30 years later.

Are they really dating? Or are they just like best friends who thought it might be easier to get on the race if they said they were dating? He seems gay to me.

animated_rotfl.gif They probably get that a lot and for sure he gets that a lot.

I know a handful of people who would be considered "goth", and none of them are like Kent and Vyxsin.. none are close to their feminine side, and none have hot pink hair. haha

I can take 'em or leave 'em but at least they are different. I seriously don't think they have their heads in the game tho! Seriously, when you keep getting told your not correct you go back and study the challenge. I don't really expect them to make it too far this time.

I can never remember which is kent and which is vyxsin. They're both so awful, it doesn't really matter; I don't guess.

I don't think that hat he put on quite qualifies as a cowboy hat. More like something you get at the state fair for 20 bucks.

Last night reinforced that I really really don't like this guy at all. Vyxsin is okay, although I find her annoying, I don't dislike her intensely. But Kent, STRONG dislike. Typical last night promising the old guy he wouldn't screw him over, then bolting like a bunny as soon as they found the clue before the final holy man. BOOOOOOOOO - hope they implode so he is off my TV screen soon!

His playing dirty doesn't bother me so much.

(I figure he'll either get away with it, or it will come back to get him in the end.)

On their original season, they were one of my favourite teams. This time... not so much.

I don't know where the appeal has gone, but I'm just not feeling it.

Next week has them fighting again.

(Looks more like Vyxsin than Kent, but we'll see if that's just the editing in the preview, or if he deserves what she's giving him.)

I didn't like them the first go round either, but I like them even less now. I find him to be just mean and snarky sometimes the way he talks to her and the way he talks to other people.

Kudos to Kent for not throwing fuel on the fire. (Well, not TOO much! LOL)

Otherwise, I could just see a crowd of Austrians gathered around while Kent's pink-haired partner rained down a flurry of vicious blows upon her scrawny submissive male.

And they were correct during their final interview of the episode about having their best finish.

However, there are way less teams now than when the race started.

if this team were two vyxsins they would finish top 3 every time.

Nah, don't think so. She gets rattled easily with certain tasks - in particular the "needle in a haystack" kind of tasks. I do like her much better than Kent, but she is far from my fave contestant.

Finally they're gone, and because of a penalty too! Fitting I say. :fish:
