Phil describes Mona and Beth as "working moms," as if there's another kind (though, admittedly, I don't watch any variety of Real Housewives). They're from Colorado and both mothers of three. Over shots of them walking and frolicking in the autumn leaves with their offspring, Beth says they're stereotypical soccer moms with "a little secret," which is when we cut to them jamming on the roller derby track. They seem confident in kicking all of the ass on the race as well. But I think their "little secret" is out.
Max and Katy are newlyweds from Buffalo, New York. How newlywed? They've been married three weeks and this is essentially their honeymoon. Max says it's not ideal, but I can't imagine planning a more interesting honeymoon for myself. They seem intent on claiming the spot as this season's "intense and competitive" team, although competition for that honor is almost always intense and competitive.
Dave and Connor are a father and son (respectively) team from Salt Lake City, Utah. They're also both cancer survivors; Dave prostate and Connor testicular. Their intro reel shows them both riding bicycles a lot, though, so we can assume they've both gotten better, even if Connor's hair hadn't grown back to a spectacular level of floppiness. They get pretty emotional, especially Dave, and Connor talks about how he's gotten back into professional bike racing and learned that every day is a gift. I suspect there are some in the past few years he wishes he'd kept the receipt for, though.
Meet Jessica and John. They're a dating couple from Southern California and look like it, with their intro reel showing them on the beach and surfing. John says they've been dating four years and Jessica says it's more like a hundred. Clearly someone is hoping for another proposal on the race. And not just Jessica, though she's clearly at the front of the line.
Idries and Jamil are OB/GYNs and identical twins, which isn't weird at all. We see them both conducting an ultrasound on some mother-to-be, which must seem a little surreal to her even if she never saw Dead Ringers. Apparently, they do everything together, up to and including surgery. Now I'm creeped out.
