Brooke and Anthony Brown from Las Vegas, Nevada are the winners of the first season of BYUtv`s 'Relative Race'. They received the $25k grand prize. On Relative Race, four couples race across the US in 10 days armed with only paper maps, rental cars, flip phones and a $25 per diem receiving instructions to complete competitions that lead them to relatives that they never knew existed.

Anthony (54) is a retired dancer, kickboxer and Vegas police officer that now performs as a Scuba Diver in "Le Reve" at the Wynn Hotel and trains UFC fighters. Brooke (33) is a Las Vegas dancer/show girl. Because Brooke's mom is adopted, they are looking forward to meeting new family members that they never even knew existed, along the way. One of the interesting things that happens during their journey is that Anthony meets a long lost relative - actually a first cousin - who turns out to be retired MLB player and renowned pinch-hitter Marlon Anderson.
