Season 25 of The Amazing Race kicked off this weekend and surfer Bethany Hamilton and her husband, Adam Dirks, are two of the latest competitors.

Hamilton, of course, hit the news in 2003 when, at the young age of 13, she was attacked by a tiger shark and her left arm was severed just below the shoulder. Undeterred, however, she went back to surfing only weeks afterwards and, in recent years, has done so well she’s not only still surfing, she’s also carved out a career for herself as a motivational speaker.

Bethany Hamilton and Adam Dirks will compete with other Amazing Race 25 competitors for a prize of $1 million. Don’t be surprised if they win it either, as this lovely young woman seems to achieve every goal she sets herself.


No word yet on when The Amazing Race 25 will air, but it should be some time in the early fall.
