Biography Brothers Marshall & Lance are originally from New York, but have since relocated to Dallas, Texas, where they own and operate a pizza shop. They describe themselves as extremely competitive and stubborn, with each always wanting to get his own way. Marshall explains that he has always tormented his younger brother. When Lance was six or seven years old, Marshall sold him a Sony Walkman for $60; the sale included a hand-written contract stating that Lance was buying the Walkman "as is," with no refund. Shortly after buying the Walkman, Lance determined that it was broken. Lance went crying to their father and told him he wanted his money back, but Marshall pulled out the contract and refused.
Marshall, the older brother, recently got engaged by surprising his fiancée while she was at a spa appointment. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University and says his biggest accomplishment has been starting an Internet security consulting company, growing it to 13 cities and 125 employees, then selling it off in 18 months.
The brothers decided to sign up for THE AMAZING RACE 5 because they are very different and knew they could make a strong team together. Lance says his personal motivation was to have a "once-in-a-lifetime experience with my brother and be on TV. Winning cash wouldn't be a bad outcome either." Marshall hopes to experience the adventurous challenges on the show, adding that he wants to see as much of the world as possible.
