A tennis master in the sixties, Gerry was Pete's fiercest competitor and the two have had an ongoing rivalry ever since. Pete's agent decided it would be a brilliant idea to pair them on The Ridonculous Race, regardless of the fact that time has made them a lot older and less fit. The two men commonly mock each other for fun. Pete and Gerry don't take themselves or anything too seriously and hope they might be able to pick up new sponsorship contracts from their appearance on the show.
Gerry and Pete had been tennis rivals for several years or even decades as Gerry once pointed out about an incident that Pete caused during the 70s. Their rivalry has attracted the attention of sports deals, sponsorship, and even being on several television shows. Despite their competitiveness toward each other, Gerry and Pete have become close friends over the years and often joke with each other.
As the last sponsorship ended many years ago, Gerry and Pete join the Race in hoping in renewing another one. As a running gag, they often compare themselves with the younger teams and and making jokes about their age or the past. In None Down, Eighteen to Go - Part 1, they suffer little difficulty in walking the skywalk though Pete broke his artificial knee once he is finish. While using the zipline, Gerry pushes Pete off the T-bar as payback for a past challenge but he too fell after grabbing the Travel Ticket. The Tennis Rivals continue to fare well in None Down, Eighteen to Go - Part 2, being the fourth team to arrive.
Pete's age catches up with him in French is an Eiffel Language, when they fall asleep in their taxi, forget to tell the driver where to go, and fall behind in the challenge. Because of this, they are among the last few teams to reach the first challenge. Seeing their disadvantage, the Tennis Rivals decide to follow the Vegans to find the cheese and succeed in doing so. Despite being more athletic than them, the Tennis Rivals are shocked that the Vegans have caught up with them. During the final moments of the Race, the Tennis Rivals decide to carry their cheese to the Chill Zone rather than roll it, costing them valuable time. Just as they reach the Chill Zone, the penalty for the Reality TV Pros ends and both teams leap onto the Chill Zone together. Gerry believes that both teams tied for last place until Don points out that Gerry's leg are not in the Chill Zone and thus, the Tennis Rivals are eliminated. Nevertheless, both of them accept their defeat and float away on their giant cheese raft, while making one final joke, which they both laugh at as the episode ends.
Gerry and Pete reappear in A Million Ways to Lose a Million Dollars with the other eliminated teams. As per their usual routine, they joke about about the Surfers and the Cadets and don't seem to be interested in either teams.
