Double amputee and competitive snowboarder and her on and off boyfriend. They started off strong, finishing 2nd in the first leg, and coming out of the Roadblock in 2nd on the second leg, but then their cab driver got them dreadfully lost looking for Wijaya Motor, putting them out in 10th. Amy would later finish as the runner up on Season 18 of ''Series/DancingWithTheStars''.

The 21st Season of the Race, and the only one to offer a prize of $2 million to the team who won the first leg if they went on to win the Race[[note]]They didn't[[/note]]. While they continued [[Characters/TheAmazingRace20 Season 20's]] trend of a more physically tough and varied course, the producers improved on Season 20's main flaw (the generally unlikable cast) by finding one of the most fun and entertaining casts the show had ever seen. The season focused mainly on the personalities of the teams, allowing it to not only overcome, but thrive despite the biggest production snafu since [[Characters/TheAmazingRaceAllStars2007 All-Stars]], when missed flights and a lost passport pushed half of the teams over ten hours behind the front teams. The cast, the numerous dramatic and memorable moments, and one of the most shocking endings in the series all added up to a great season.

Life Partners and Goat Farmers, they were the stars of the reality show ''The Fabulous Beekman Boys'', and are quite possibly the most unlikely team to ever win the race. They barely avoided elimination for seven straight legs, slipping by as other teams hit some horrible luck and made game breaking mistakes. They would not finish above 4th place until only four teams remained, and not finish above 3rd until the final leg. In the end, Josh passed up Lexi on the [[JustForFun/{{Hello}} Hello]]/[[ThatsAllFolks Goodbye]] FinalExamFinale puzzle, becoming poster boys for the fact that anyone really can win the race.

* DarkHorseVictory: They are easily the weakest team to ever win the race (even acknowledging this in post-race interviews saying they'd rather be the worst winners than the best losers), having finished in the bottom-2 for seven straight legs, yet survived all seven legs. In comparison, only one other team had survived six bottom-2 finishes ([[Characters/TheAmazingRace5 Kami & Karli]]), and they held that record for ''eight years'' until Josh & Brent broke it[[note]]Though Terri & Henry also managed to survive six close shaves in [[Characters/TheAmazingRaceAsia2 Asia Season 2]][[/note]]. They also have the the least number of top-2 and top-3 finishes of any winner in race history, as well as the worst finishing average. They're also the second team to win after being 13 hours behind at one point ([[Characters/TheAmazingRaceAllStars2007 Eric & Danielle]]). In the final leg, Trey & Lexi twice said how they weren't worried about the Beekman Boys, as the Chippendales were their real competition.

* WhoIsThisGuyAgain: Possibly the hardest team to tell apart in race history, as not only are they twins with the same hairstyles, same style of clothing, and even both have nose piercings, but they refer to each other as "Twinnie". Though sometimes they will wear same style of clothing but different colors, and one will refer to the other by name early on, helping the audience to tell them apart.

* MusclesAreMeaningful: Why they picked the Ice detour on Leg 2



* AssumedWin: Because of their overconfident nature. At the first roadblock, Natalie assumed it would be a piece a cake because she played table tennis while in Sri Lanka and her opponent being a child.
* {{Badass}}: They called them the most Badass Sri Lankans you'll even meet.

* FromBadToWorse: Ryan said this on his last leg to describe his situation.



** And this was not even the first time a team missed consecutive connecting flights in Frankfurt, putting them way behind the pack and eliminating them in 5th place. The same thing happened to [[Characters/TheAmazingRaceAllStars Uchenna & Joyce]], right down to the flights being missed in the exact same legs.
