Worst U.S. Amazing Race Teams

The Top Ten
1 Jonathan and Victoria

Jonathan without question is the worst person to ever run this race. He pushed his own wife in Germany after they failed to get first place! Even Phil really disliked him. When Jonathan shook his hand after they checked, Phil looked at him like "why did this nuisance get cast on my show?" It would be so satisfying to see Jonathan get yelled by Gordon Ramsay. So glad they divorced after the race.

Jonathan is the most abusive person ever on this race. Not only was he rude to Victoria, pushing her, he was very rude to other teams.

Jonathan was A HORRIBLE PERSON. BUT in a later interview with him, he said that Jonathan had to support his film company, his day spa, and his (2)? I think daughters, while Victoria is a nanny to a child of a famous person. Does anyone remember when Jonathan gave Don and Mary Jean 20$ when they were bankrupt? Or when he gave candy to the kids in Africa? Also, in another interview, he said that he gave all his things, (Including his money- 1,000$) to the kids in Ethiopia. He could be LYING about the money and his daughters, and I'm not DEFENDING what he did eithet

I interviewed johnathan, and he was actually a down to earth guy! Trust me, I wanted to hate him, but he was so nice to the other people in Africa, that I just couldn't. But Kendra was terrible; no respect to all the Africans and she had a lot of racism with it! Anyways, back to johnathan, I just have one question, if johnathan is so mean, then how come he's the only guy taking care of his and Victoria's kid, while Victoria is a nanny on a T.V. show

2 Brendon and Rachel

These two are absolutely ridiculous. I don't know how anyone could be attracted to Rachel. That constant crying that she does and you never, ever see a tear come out of her eyes. I didn't like her on Big Brother and she was just as bad, if not worse, on the Amazing Race. Got to be one of the all time worst!

Rachel May be the most annoying person alive what a giant Crybaby and Brendon was nothing but a big Wuss that was basically just whipped by Rachel! What a horrible crappy team!

She was so whinny and he just went along with her. She cried all the time. I hated her so much, she could not stop crying or one minute. I mean my gosh get over other people's opinions. They were always screaming and falling apart.

They were awful. Constantly crying, screaming, and arguing. All time low was Final 5 (forget which leg) when she refuses to shave her head and weeps because "I just spent $500 on extensions"

3 Tara and Wil

So glad they lost against Chris and Alex. One of the most satisfying losses ever. Wil was so rude to not only Tara but Alex and Blake too!

They joined the race to try and see if their relationship was going to work out. It was immediately apparent that they were NOT going to get along. Both of them were constantly yelling at and blaming each other for everything, Wil was a total jerk to all the other teams, and Tara started shamelessly flirting with Chris and Alex. It might have been fine if these annoying competitors had gotten out earlier, but they made it to the finals and by then I was sick of that season.

I liked Tara even though she usually hung out with those guys (Alex and another one) most of the time, but Wil just blamed her for everything and kinda took it back some hours later after screaming at her

Wil is just petty, and Tara was flirting with another team, they were rarely on the same page...

4 Tim and Marie

So in the minority here BUT I LOVED MARIE

They've had a bickerment with every other team on TAR23 and when they had the express pass they acted all like everybody wants the express pass so whoever helps us most will get it. Basically, a bunch of control freaks

Marie is so annoying

I almost stopped watching TAR because Marie was the worst and so controlling over Tim! and in Leg 5 I think She stole Jason and Amy's cab. Like who does that!?

5 Colin and Christie

Colin has anger issues to say the least. However, not many are acknowledging Christie would constantly yell and nag at Colin to wind him up. This is no way excuses Colins actions, but the combination of the two are just a terrible pairing. The worst part is when Colin refused to pay a taxi cab driver in another country and the cops got involved. The two of them together almost got arrested in another country.

Colin's behavior towards that cab driver was beyond atrocious. Refused to pay because the cab driver didn't get them to the location first. The police had to be involved and when he paid he didn't hand the cab driver the money, he threw it at him like the cab driver was beneath him. If I was the cab driver I would've knocked him out right there in the police station. Christie is no better by any stretch.

They were a big part of TAR history. I was actually surprised that I saw them only once during the history of TAR.
I heard they were going to, but Christie got pregnant. Colin would seem like he would force Christie to do The Amazing Race again since they got so close to winning season five.

Colin was such a bad person to the taxi driver JUST GIVE HIM THE MONEY I also once saw him push Christie I really wanted them to go to jail I hated him. Christie was just so annoying all she was, was a follower of Colin This team was by far the worst

6 Eric and Danielle

Eric is a jerk, I think they after the race

Worst winners in amazing race history. Cannot stand these two

Why are these two All Stars?!

Dumb - GnerdRage

7 Sam and Dan

Their attitude at the farm in Sweden was inexcusable and Sam should've felt sorry about it.

I hate them with all my hate they are the biggest backstabbing asses to ever go on this show

8 Brooke and Scott

Brooke is SO ANNOYING! Her voice is just so unpleasant to listen to. When she struggles, she makes a big fit and makes her voice heard and cries and screams to the top of her lungs. Spoiler Alert: The fact that she is in the final four now makes me sick. If Brooke and Scott do win the Amazing Race, I hope all of the money goes to Scott for managing to do what is probably the hardest task ever on the race, which is having to deal with Brooke for the whole race. If you can do that Scott, you can accomplish anything.

I liked Scott but Brooke complained about everything if this team reminds me of another team it would be hailey and Blair from season 26

These two are half and half for me. They work well when they're on top, but under pressure, Brooke whines, and Scott overreacts after having to put up with it. They would've lost Leg 4 if Brooke didn't get help at the Roadblock.
EDIT: F***. Just, f***. They won. How could a team this irritating win. I swore to myself Becca and Floyd would win. They lost. Okay then, Matt and Redmond. Lost. Final 3, praying either Tara and Joey or the LoLo's win. At least they had good communication.

Brooke should not be allowed back into the United States. She is a piece of garbage who has floated on her own river of tears through this entire race. I hope she comes home and all her friends and family stop talking to her.

9 Kisha and Jen

I hate these 2 so much why did the come back and win that season at least they were nicer that season but still

She had not guilty of anything, Luke pushes Jen with the shoulder in the clue box, Luke is too spoiled by Margie, so he was too sensitive and sometimes very impulsive with other teams

Honestly, I think they were both at fault

I was feeling so sorry for margie and luke after

10 Nathan and Jennifer

This comment will show you how Nathan and Jennifer did not earn anything and yelled at teams to let them win. Some are not exactly true these are just examples. All are said by Jen.


Earn your damn victory!

They actually disgust me. In Ireland, Nathan started yelling at animals and I'm like "they can't understand English." In Lithuania and Croatia, all they did was fight like 9 year olds. In Taiwan, they eliminated themselves.

I don't know, but I think she was eliminated in her birthday

The Contenders
11 Flo and Zach

Flo is the worst. No appreciation. I don't understand how she wanted to quit the third or second last leg, only for Zach to do all the work and the next leg, she's so happy because now they had a chance of winning. Also, the first time she was negative and said she will quit, she clearly indicated she will never that again yet not so long after that, she did that numerous amounts of time when she didn't even do a thing yet complained and treated Zach badly like everything was his fault. Including him not wanting to cut line because of the person he is but she clearly did not understand that because she's an arrogant brat.

Flo and Zach should be lower! Flo is in the running for worst Amazing Race partner. However, Zach is not only one of the best partners, also a great guy. Flo is very easily stressed and the way she handles that stress is taking it out on her partner, mainly verbal abuse. In addition, she doesn't contribute much to her team, as Zach did most of the roadblocks and detours singlehandedly. I think Flo is a good person though, even if she was useless. Therefore, they should be lower!

In my opinion, Zach is the only person ever to win the race all by himself while carrying 100lbs of useless weight on his back. Yeah, as a team they may deserve to be on this list, but it's mostly just because of Flo. If anything, she made Zach's seemingly infinite reserve of patience and understanding seem downright saintly. They're quite possibly the only team in TAR history to contain both the villain and the hero of the season.

Flow always complaining and wanting to quit, and getting pissed at teams that are doing better. Also screwing other teams over. I don't know how they won Season 3... can we just consider that season a fail and pretend it never happened? I know I regret watching it... Flo hurts my ears with her whining and crying then turns around and insults others teams.

12 Nick and Vicki

Nick was a total bully and treated Vicki like crap

Vicki is nice. Nick had no good personality

They were so mean to each other

I liked Vicki I hated nick

13 Carol and Brandy

What a horrible couple. Unless you are absolutely perfect yourself, you never insult or degrade another individual for any reason. Their insensitive and rude comments about the other players were so childish and cruel. I was thrilled when they were eliminated.

Carol was not that bad but Brandy was awful. We all remember the finish line when Brent and Caite arrived. They were still mad at them for u-turning them and they treated that setback like this was the worst thing that ever happened to them. Their behavior at the finish line was unacceptable, classless, egotistical, and very unsportsmanlike

We are watching in the u.k and we love the amazing race! We just finished season 16 and these two were awful and their unsportsmanlike attitude was terrible. The real winners were the two cowboys who kept cool at the finish despite the unsportsmanlike behaviour of the two brothers that queue jumped.

These two were so annoying the whole time. Just major attitudes, even to each other.

14 Art and JJ

Very unlikable team they were mean to brenden and Rachel for no reason at all and then they confronted the one team I forget their name for not being teachers and then they were mean to Rachel and Dave for not u turning Brendon and Rachel I was mad when they came back in season 31 but at least they were out right away

Ever heard of Rachel and Dave winning 8

They were just gross and disgusting

I mean Art was OK, but JJ was a dick

15 Josh and Brent

These guys have fought their way through every obstacle (heat exhaustion, missed flight, penalties, and an ankle injury) to ultimately cause one of the greatest turnouts in Race history. Season 21 was already an awesome season but their victory made it even better. They definitely should not be on this list.

Argumentative unpleasant to each other and other teams

By the way, I think you have to click dislike in order for them to get out of being hated

Who doesn't love a good underdog story
I mean yeah they didn't deserve it after narrowly surviving 7 legs in a row but at least they're not the worst winners

16 Tammy and Victor

They were great. Do you remember when keisha and jen and margie and luke were arguing and they were just chill? yeah, they deserved to win!

How can you turn on Them?

Why are they here?

They were very distant from all the other teams.

17 Charla and Mirna

Were the rudest people on the show when things did not go that way, and then said how everyone else were monsters when things didn't go their way even when it was justified.

This is truly the rudest team I can remember. Every country they visited they talked down to the locals, as if to say you should worship the ground I walk on. They also would employ cheap tactics, and maybe that's how the game is played, but then they complained incessantly when they were used against them!

What is with Mirna always speaking English with these horrific, condescending accents to the people of every country she visits?! There are a million reasons both Charla and Mirna are terrible but the accents are the worst for me.

Mirna is a disgusting, horrid human being. All she did was make enemies and say terrible things. Charla loved talking about how she wanted to prove little people could do as much as a normal person, and then constantly used her size to beg to others(cabbies, people on the street, etc). A truly disgusting team, they should be at least #3 on this list.

18 Ari and Staella

How, with the one leg they were in overall, get so much hate from people including me

19 Cody and Jessica

When Cody and Jessica won, I was so thrilled--finally a deserving team! They DO NOT belong on this list. The nasty comments I read must be from haters from BB or even this race. Jessica was far far from useless-did she not finish the final challenge and win? She also did many roadblocks that were difficult such as the Iceland climb which no other female other than all female teams competed at.They never bickered or whined. I saw no entitlement or hypocrisy. They formed a bond even at the very end with team extreme and team Indy. I have just watched all 30 seasons over the past 6 months and hands down they were my favorites.The jealousy I see from other comments is so unfair and unjustified..Cody and Jessica were an excellent well-deserving team. What a wonderful couple!

Really bad team. They sucked at working together and never tried to communicate with other people. Cody would be off doing one thing while Jessica was off doing another, and they just came off as way too condescending which clearly got to everyone else. Especially Brittany.

Jessica joins the ranks of Flo and Danielle as the most useless winners in the history of this show

They shouldn't have won. Cody did everything and Jessica was the most annoying person ever.

20 Mika and Canaan

Why in the world would you go on the amazing race but are afraid of water and heights?! What do you think you are going to be doing? Staying on land and never going high! I feel bad for Canaan it was all Mika's fault that they were eliminated. Canaan should have another partner on a All - Star so that he can get somewhere in the race!

This should just be about Mika. In Vietnam, she was complaining the whole time in the water. In the UAE, she eliminated herself after she refused to go down the slide because she was just afraid. I mean, Brian and Ericka were afraid and they got over it. The Globetrotters would've been eliminated.

If you go on this show, you have to be willing to do it all.

Mika cost them the win because she couldn't go down a waterslide. How pathetic.

21 Brent and Caite

Brent and Caite went against everything this race was all about just like Freddy and Kendra except they did not win

Can't stand these immature brats

These two just plain suck

I actually liked them.

22 Leo and Jamal

But in all stars they became nicer and still funny. They really were helpful to everyone...

I agree that they were better on the All stars.

Oh my gosh! They drive me insane! And they are such liars!

They are helpful to other teams

23 Bates and Anthony
24 Michael and Kevin
25 Max and Katie

They had big stumbles in Bora Bora and Botswana. They must be very blessed to have made it to 2nd because in those two places they just as easily could have been eliminated

He was so racist.

They were so mean to Meghan and joey
