Vipul and Arti Biographies:
Born in India, Vipul Patel is the proud owner of phone card sales business. He and his family moved to the United States when he was only two years old. He is confident about his strong will power, and sees himself as a fun and highly active individual.
Arti Patel was born in South Africa, and came to the United States with her family when she was already a teenager. She is a nutritional director, and has a more passive personality than her husband, Vipul. She has great love for adventure and fun, and is known for her dependability.
Vipul and Arti, who both reside in Windermere, Florida, first met in Vipul's house, where Arti would come over to do Tae Bo with Vipul's sister. They got married in December of 2003, and since both of them come from a conservative Hindu background, their decision to join The Amazing Race 10 was initially met with concern, particularly from Arti's parents. Vipul had been thinking about participating in the competition for almost two years, and when he and Arti finally felt it was time to do so, they began to train themselves into shape. Despite their preparation, Married team Vipul and Arti were unable to make it far in the race, having been the second team to be eliminated at the end of the 1st leg from the race.
