This couple has been dating for about a year. They are an odd couple of sorts. Sarah has an MBA from Wharton and works long hours on Wall Street. Terence sell real estate, but gets his kicks by coaching runners. Both are in very good shape, but are incredibly intense. Expect some yelling.
Marisa and Brooke Southern Belles
Blonde southern belles, that is. Marisa and Brooke are best friends, and want to prove that they aren't just dumb blondes (yeah, yeah....we've heard this before). Marisa is a Broadcast Journalism major at the University of South Carolina. Brooke is a graphic designer. They will either be charming or unbearable. There is no in-between.
Andrew and Dan Fraternity Brothers
Dubbed Team Superbad by the other teams, these two were frat brothers at Arizona State University together. Andrew is studying Urban Planning. Dan graduated last year with a degree in Tourism. Both enjoy having a good time. Obviously.
Aja and Ty Long Distance Couple
Having met at the University of Michigan, Aja and Ty fell for each other. But, for more than a year now, they've had to keep their relationship going despite living in separate states. Aja is an aspiring actress/make up artist living in Los Angeles. Ty works as a banker in Detroit.
Mark and Bill Comic Book Geeks
Mark and Bill met at a science fiction club 23 years ago and have been friends ever since. They remain proud geeks and have been bonding over comic books and video games since the moment they met. Mark is the more outgoing and adventurous one, Bill more introverted.

Toni raised Dallas as a single mother. The two remain best friends, even with Dallas currently enrolled in college. Both are outgoing, with entertaining personalities
Nick and Starr Brother and Sister
Nick is currently an off-Broadway performer. For the last three years, Starr has been a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader. Should be quite the theatrical team. The siblings rarely get to see each other because they live far away, but still consider themselves best friends.
Anita and Arthur Married Hippies
This is probably my favorite team. They've known each other 26 years, and have been married for 14. They make and sell their own honey. They recently purchased a blueberry farm. Both are unadulterated hippies.
Kelly and Christy Best Friends
This duo has been friends forever. They were there for each other through their marriages, their divorces. They've worked for the same company, and have each remodeled their homes. Kelly is a sales representative, Christy a business developer.
