Brothers, they ran the Race well enough, even climbing to 2nd at one point, but they flipped their car in Botswana, injuring their cameraman and pushing themselves to the back of the pack. Even though they managed to survive the leg thanks to beating a disintegrating Ray & Deanna in a footrace to the Pit Stop, the next leg did not have an equalizer, and their ten minute deficit behind Gretchen & Meredith was apparently enough that they never saw another team after that, eliminating them in 6th place. Brian has since appeared on ''TheBigBangTheory'', and in several dozen commercials, some of which have aired during subsequent seasons of the Race.

* PetTheDog: When Meredith and Gretchen finished in last place on a non-elimination leg and lost all their possessions except literally the shirts on their backs, Uchenna provided them with some of his spare clothes. [[note]]So did Ron & Kelly, but this wasn't mentioned onscreen.[[/note]]

* HappilyMarried: Or Happily Engaged. There never appeared to be any onscreen argument between Rob & Amber (even Uchenna & Joyce and Meredith & Gretchen could yell at each other during stressful, frustrating roadblocks and detours).

* BornLucky: They might not seem like it with their injuries and nearly always finishing near the bottom, but there was usually at least one other team each leg that did worse than them and were eliminated. They even {{Lamphaded}} that most of their success was due to the mistakes of other teams. Even their best showing, finishing second in leg 9, was largely due to Rob & Amber getting HoistByTheirOwnPetard.

* MiracleRally: Their comeback in the finale, which they did despite not having any money to start the leg (and where the rules required by taxi, [[CaptainObvious which requires money]]), having to beg their way onto a closed flight, then beg for money to pay their cab at the Finish Line.
