The Amazing Race Australia's First Team Announced And They're Nuns On The Run

These nuns are on a mission to shrug off their bad habits and make it to the end of 'The Amazing Race Australia'.

Meet Judy and Therese, Missionaries of God's Love Sisters who have been friends for over 20 years. They'll be the literal flying nuns as they're set to conquer 'The Amazing Race Australia'.

And they've got a secret weapon: God.

While the other teams will be running across the globe, trying to scrape through as best as they can, Judy and Therese have a holier plan: pray, pray pray.

"I can pray for endurance, perseverance and courage when I don't have any left," Judy said when she was asked about her biggest advantage in the race.

"To do 'The Amazing Race' would be to achieve the challenge of a lifetime," she continued, "where else do you get to do so many crazy, impossible challenges all over the world in a short time."

Adding that she'd hope to not have to travel to Israel during the race -- "Because I would hate to go there in a rush, I'd want to stop and pray for days and not run around." -- Judy and Therese know that their strengths are not only in the hands of God but also their chosen field.

"Meeting people is incredibly inspiring," Therese said of her travels when she's gone on Mission, "they are so joyful and happy even though they have nothing."

Having nothing might just be a problem the nuns face if they're not able to be the first team to reach the pit stops in time. But this isn't the first time the pair will have faced unusual circumstances.

"I once got chased by warriors in Papua New Guinea," Therese said.

So, there's that.

'The Amazing Race Australia' will premiere Monday, October 28 at 7.30 on Network 10 and WIN Network.
