Erwin Cho and Godwin Cho are a team of Brothers on The Amazing Race 10.

They started started off the season as fan favorites and frontrunners, especially due to their naturally selfless and kind natures. However, this changed in leg 7, as they made a number of stupid and impractical moves. They made numerous statements in the ensuing legs that made it clear they cared more about coming off as good people than they did winning the Race. Their popularity plummeted, and they went from fan favorites to a team that many remember as one of the most idiotic to ever run the Race. In the 9th leg, they fell behind when they refused to follow Lyn & Karlyn when they felt insulted by the moms, and fell behind. They were ultimately done in when they turned onto a street closed down for pedestrian traffic while looking for the Pit Stop, and they were detained by the police, eliminating them in 5th place.

Erwin & Godwin are super competitive brothers from San Francisco, California. Although they are both overachievers, Godwin feels that he grew up in the shadow of his "perfect" Harvard-educated older brother. He believes the Race will provide a great opportunity for him to showcase his talents and prove that he is as capable as Erwin.

Erwin, a manager for an insurance company, describes himself as being calm, confident and creative. He claims the most exciting moment of his life was his first plane ride "when the world just opened up," and he's been traveling ever since. Godwin, a financial analyst, is the more ambitious of the two and is not afraid to take risks.

The brothers enjoy working out together and discussing new business ideas. Both men are well-traveled and enjoy the excitement that comes with visiting new places. The siblings are thrilled to have the chance to travel the globe, compete for a million dollars and do some brotherly bonding along the way.
