Best U.S. Amazing Race Teams

The Top Ten
1 Jet and Cord

They were pretty much the best all-around team. They work together really well, they're super efficient, and they were super friendly too. The only time they ever really got unfriendly was when Jordan skipped them in line at the airport in Shanghai, and they still managed to keep their cool. When they got 2nd to Dan and Jordan, I'm pretty sure my heart broke for a little bit. Then when they came back for Unfinished Business, I thought they had it in the bag. Even when they came in last on the first leg, we all knew they'd be able to catch back up (we all saw them go from last to first with a Speed Bump in season 16). But when they got eliminated, I pretty much gave up on that season. I understand the Globetrotters U-Turning them because it's a crucial part of the game and the cowboys were an amazing team, but I wanted to punch Flight and Easy in the faces. Anyway, I hope Jet and Cord realize they are still the best team The Amazing Race has ever seen and maybe if Amazing Race decides ...more

My favorite team of all time. I
Personally think they are the strongest team of all time. They worked together A-Maze-Ingly. I was so sad that they didn't win season 16. Then they were back for season 18. Scared that they might be the first ones eliminated, but still had faith. I was mad that they got u turned. And finally they were back for season 24. They won 1st and got the express pass. But got u turned again. I hope, and I think everyone else hopes, that they come back to race another season.

Easily my favorite TAR team, and one of the strongest ever. I loved how they were always calm and collected, did their thing and stayed out of the fracas. I was so disappointed when they lost.

The person who wrote about the All Star Unfinished Business combination must be very happy right now, I know I am! Hopefully they win it this time.

2 Dustin and Kandice

I really liked these two, my favorite team from season 10, they weren't the stereotypical blondes who were dumb and weak and used their looks to get ahead, they were smart and strong and fun to watch, disappointed they didn't win.

These beauty queens may have been sneaky to some people but I really loved them because they performed great and they definitely proved that an all-female team can win TAR.

Great racers. Made smart decisions by not aligning themselves with anyone else (particularly on a season like TAR10 where an otherwise smart team raced like idiots by aligning themselves with two mediocre teams).

One of the strongest female teams ever on the show, almost won All Stars and always showed that they could beat the men if they wanted to.

3 Brook and Claire

I love them because they were so fun to watch with their kisses and strong performance throughout S17. Also, the watermelon hitting Claire's face is still one of the most memorable moments for me in TAR history.

So fun to watch these two! How they stay positive on all tasks, even water melon hit, after fight.. they are just good! And FUN Want to see them come back again!

The only team that made me laugh more was Keving and Drew from season one. I feel like they shouldl've won. They were the only team to ever get u-turned and not get eliminated.

This was one of my favorite teams! They were funny, and didn't argue, and had lots of charisma. I wished they came back.

4 Bopper and Mark

You know, if they make another unfinished buisness, they should put bopper and mark. After bopper's pancreas issue, the money for their sick daughter, and their upbeat additude that makes you want them to win. I swear if they don't come back, I will find you producers, and kill you

Funny, with a good reason to need the million, and got along well with most of the teams. I disliked the replacement of Bopper with Mallory in All-Stars, though

This team is what The Amazing Race is all about. They were a couple of ordinary guys but won our hearts over by their commitment.

All around amazing team. They were always positive and also did pretty well. I wish they came back for allstars though.

5 Nat and Kat

They were so awesome to watch because they never bickered with each other and it was amazing to see them make history as the first all-female team to win.

Classy yet competitive. Treated everyone with kindness and respect. Proof that strong women don't have to be mean to get ahead.

Super positive and supportive of each other. Best ambassadors for US travelers - very respectful, polite and a joy to watch!

First all female wining team, and winners of a bunch of legs while overcoming many obstacles (I.e. Diabetes, vegetarianism, fear of heights... )

6 Adam and Bethany

These two are by far my favorite team that has EVER competed on this race. Through her tragedy, they both still always thought positive and kept on pushing through. Even though they didn't win, I'm still happy they are doing great. Bethany's even pregnant now!

I think they are a match made in heaven. Bethany was the sweetheart of the season and she dominated most of the tasks. It was definitely a great team to watch and it was one of the saddest moments when they finished in 3rd I thought they deserved the win more than anybody there

Those two were AMAZING I definitely wish they would of won. One arm and Bethany could swim, run, and climb faster than anyone else! Also Adam was really nice and you could tell how much he loved Bethany.

I really loved their relationship and how they communicated with each other. and Bethany was amazing for what she was able to do

7 Margie and Luke

I have seen good communication in the first 13 seasons, but Margie and Luke had the best communication of any team out there. They are to me the second best parent/child team, behind Dave and Connor

They always seem to find a terrible challenge in every season

Season 14: Surfboard

Season 18: tea

Season 24: The alcohol mixer( although, they didn't get eliminated there, it was still hard for them, because they could only do that challage, because of Luke's deafness)

But still, I love this team, and almost cried when Luke told Margie," I'm sorry, this is all my fault" in season 18

By far my absolute favorite team! The love between these 2 is Amazing! Best communication. I cried every time they didn't win

Even when deaf, Luke still has better communication than most teams.

8 Gary and Mallory

Mallory just made the race so much more fun to watch!

Mal is so funny! Wish they had won 18

Mallory was the best

So fun and spunky!

9 Nick and Starr

They were the epitome of the perfect team. They were consistent, efficient, strong, clever, got along phenomenally, resilient, and they were the jack of all trades and master of all.

They worked great together! We're consistent almost the whole race and came out with what they deserved... They won! Winning 7/11 legs including the final leg.

The ideal winning team I like to see on TAR. They got along well, had several consistent finishes, and pushed through every obstacle.

Local Catholic school used them as an example of how siblings should get along.

10 Tim and Marie

I surprisingly really liked Tim & Marie, I didn't think I would, but as the race went on I found Marie becoming less mean, and the relationship between the two sort of funny. I also was really impressed with Marie's performance in the roadblock for the final leg before the finale, she came to the task in last and they won because of her. I can definitely understand why people don't like them, this is just my opinion.

Why are they on the list. I've seen season 23 and I'm sure they got into a fight between all 11 teams including themselves

For Tim, I liked him and he was a great guy but Marie was annoying, controlling, and pathetic

The Contenders
11 Becca and Floyd

This team is by far one of the most hardworking, dedicated and fun teams on the amazing race. Their optimism brought them all the way to 5th place on both S29 and S31. The reason that they were featured on S31 is that they were the most wonderful, amazing teams on the amazing race. I really, truly wanted Becca and Floyd to win S29 and S31, but small, though crucial mistakes can bring you down. Hopefully, they get featured on the amazing race one or more times in the near future. They were a FUNSTOPPABLE and unforgettable team. Their dedication, persistence, and perseverance made them one of the strongest teams on TARS31 and TARS29. Team Fun never threatened another team. For them to be u-turned by a team was a strategical yet horrible decision, because they were a great team. Becca's climbing and Floyd's drumming brought them far in every circumstance. Funstoppable!

Firstly, Becca and Floyd are my favority team on the Amazing Race. They never failed to make veiewers smile or laugh, and their optimism really brought them far in the race. The were elimated due to the smallest of things, but they came very, very far in both S29 and S31. They were an extremely strong team, delivering two leg wins each in S29 and S31. They truly were the funstoppable team. I really, reall,y wanted them to win the seasons 31 and 29. Theyh first met at the starting line on S29, and to get far in both seasons only used to being strangers (they were friends in S31) is a great feat to accomplish. Even though there demise in S31 was from a u-turn, they pushed through until the end. Even when they eliminated they were still the happiest team. #TeamFun!

They are the best most wonderful teams in the amazing race. They persevered, and managed to finish leg ten. They should have won both TAR 29 and TAR 31. All the other teams are so competitive and mean. But Becca and Floyd are the best team by far.

They were the best. How the hell are they 12th? Floyd pushed through his exhaustion, they won like 2 or 3 legs, and were basically always happy!

12 Jaime and Cara

Spicy, determined and entertaining! They aren't the strongest team but it didn't stop them from almost winning the race. The race needs more racers like them!

Jaime and Cara were the true underdogs for their time not coming in first yet placing second in Season 14!

13 Flight Time and Big Easy

These guys should be higher, they're good racers considering I believe they got second in Unfinished Business and they always bring entertainment.

Just big hulking good natured guys who didn't take themselves too seriously. Liked their second season best.

Why are they not higher? I found them so funny! One of my favorite teams definitely.

What?! 29 these guys deserve better.

14 Charla and Mirna

Definitely a very charismatic team who worked harder and smarter than a lot of teams. They are responsible for most of my most memorable moments on TAR

The most fun team! The sausage eating detour from all stars season still makes me laugh!

Most entertaining team ever!
"I think she's a prostitute."
"But the prostitute would know where the disco is."

They are the nicest and most positive team ever! I love their relationship
and bond.

15 B.J. and Tyler

Funny to watch and they had the most fun. They took life as it came and took the opportunity to enjoy the experience. You could tell Jeff enjoyed them too by the way he grinned every time they showed up

Best team ever, they were so nice and enjoyed everything. And then and the frat boys dominated the whole season.

They're hilarious and a lot of fun to watch! They're all fun-loving and want to have a good time.

They were truly the best team ever with a fun loving spirit and contagious energy.

16 Rob and Amber

They dominated on survivor and the amazing race. Not only the best TAR team, but the best reality T.V. contestants ever!

Can't stand Rob, and Amber was a bit of a wet blanket, but they're one of the ten best teams in TAR history.

I'm still waiting for the day they go on Big Brother...

The king and queen of reality T.V..

17 Joey and Meghan

Joey and Meghan are one of the most positive looking teams on the Amazing Race ever. Every time the do a task, they always look at the positive side of things and they always have faith and are one of the funniest teams ever on the race.

I love these two! Season 24 was horrible, and they should've lasted much longer. Oh well, at least they ran 13 legs. Definitely a fun loving, positive, and competitive team.

Always positive, and the first team I recognized before watching the show. Best of 22, 4th of 24.

So positive even when everyone was against them.

18 Andy and Tommy

Those snowboarders were super awesome to watch due to their strong performance throughout S19 and with their rock paper scissors before roadblocks in the early legs.

These guys ruled the race and they were fun to watch!

How are they not number 1? Best team ever!

Incredible team won 6 legs of the race.

19 Leo and Jamal

Obnoxious (at least in their first season), but they get points for wresting the "most legs run" title from Rachel, and they were strong in all three of their seasons.

The most entertaining and hilarious team so far. Definitely should have been in the top three.

Obnoxious at first but funny and competitive. They definitely looked better character wise on their second appearance

IT'S so nice to see the smiling. They are always enjoying guys.

20 Jason and Amy

Jason and Amy won second on six of their legs, and won first place twice, showing that they were a consistent team. Also, they were very nice to the other teams, especially their allies Nicole and Travis. They are very deserving TAR winners.

21 Meghan and Cheyne

These two are probably my favorite couple to ever compete on the amazing race. They were super sweet and funny and remained positive for the whole race. Plus they had great teamwork and rarely got mad at eachother. Not to mention being both athletic and smart.

22 Vanessa and Ralph
23 Jaymes and James

They were so fun to watch and the reason they competed for their families was incredibly emotional and inspirational. Also, I'm glad they won those awesome Ford Escape cars.

It broke my heart when they didn't win, I wanted them to win from leg 1, and to see them get better and better as the race went on gave me hope. They really deserved to win

They were so much fun and had great attitudes. even though they had a rocky start they deserved to win over the Beekman boys. I am glad that they won the cars though.

Should've won season 21. They got jipped out of the million dollars. Definitely should have been theirs.

24 Dave and Connor

I just have to say this, Dave and Connor won two legs on Season 22 with a crutch. So just imagine how they would have been without crutches, they would have dominated the race. But in Season 24, that thought became a reality as they did dominate All-Stars despite having the Cowboys and the Globetrotters in the race. Their withdrawal of the race is tied for the most devastating exit on the race with Zev and Justin.

Give them a little more credit. They're both cancer survivors, they won two legs with Dave on one leg, and continued to dominate their second season. One of the greatest winners.

The First Father and son team to win!
The oldest and youngest to win!
Two Cancer survivors!
Last the biggest Turn around in amazing race history!

Don't really like them, but 8 legs won in less than a season and a half speaks for itself.
