Bethany Hamilton & Adam Dirks – ‘The Amazing Race’

Bethany Hamilton is a professional surfer who survived a 2003 shark attack, where her left arm was bitten off. A 14-foot tiger shark attacked her and she lost 60 percent of her blood, going into shock. Fortunately, she was only in the hospital for about a week. She eventually returned to a successful surfing career and has many brands under her name. She and her “soul surfing” husband are on this season’s The Amazing Race together. Dirks is a youth minister as well as surfing enthusiast. They became engaged in April 2013 and were married just four months later with 300 guests at a secluded 130-acre estate on Kauai’s north shore, where Hamilton is from.

When it comes to taking on The Amazing Race with her husband, Hamilton tells the Gospel Herald:

I hope Adam and I have a fun time adventuring in different countries and doing challenges. I hope we can have great teamwork and communication. I just want to have a blast!
