These people are from Daphne, AL.  Chuck is a retail manager at Walmart and is also a Taxidermist.  Wynona is a Cosmetologist/Hairstylist.  They are both avid reality TV show watchers.  And as Wynona puts it; “It’s definitely harder than it looks.”  Sure, they are both in their late 40’s.  But we have seen that older couples in past Amazing Race seasons can win!  Read more about Chuck and Wynona at: http://www.al.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2013/02/amazing_race_daphne_couple_hun
