Duke and Lauren Biographies:
Duke Marcoccio owns and manages a business called, My Little Town, and the company's main products are miniature porcelain England icons. One of his greatest interests is a Harley Davidson motorcycle. He is the proud father of three children and resides in Narragansett, Rhode Island.
Openly gay speech and language pathologist Lauren Marcoccio spends her free time hiking, running and rock climbing. She is also highly competitive and presently holds residence in Warwick, Rhode Island.
With the hopes of mending their father-daughter relationship, Duke and Lauren entered the tenth season of The Amazing Race with much determination and enthusiasm. Duke and Lauren once shared a close and tight bond, but after she revealed the truth about her sexuality, they became estranged for a long period of time. Originally, Lauren auditioned for another reality series, Survivor, but after the producers of the show learned about her strained relationship with Duke, they offered her and her father a spot on The Amazing Race. Although they started out strong in the competition in second place in the 1st leg, third in the 2nd leg, but it was not enough to catch up to the other teams and consequently came in last place at the end of the 3rd leg which makes them the fourth team eliminated from the race.
