Alexandra Lichtor and Sheridan Lichtor are a team of Siblings/Roommates on The Amazing Race 35.

Starting out the Race, Alexandra & Sheridan were outside of their comfort zone. Their slow and methodical approach to the Race quickly led to them falling to the back of the pack early on. After making it on the second of two flights to Bangkok, Thailand, they had to compete between the other six teams on their flight to avoid last place. Arriving at the Detour in 11th place, the team chose Sword Play since they did not believe they would be able to tolerate the pain of a massage that would have resulted from choosing the other task. This resulted in the team repeatedly struggling with coordination on their chosen task, allowing for the two teams behind them to pull ahead. This ultimately led to their elimination in 13th place.

What do you think is the most important skill required to win The Amazing Race?
Sheridan Lichtor: It's either communication or reading the clue. I think it's reading the clue. Or it could be navigation. Actually a couple of skills. [Laughs.]
Alexandra Lichtor: Reading the clue and just taking pause to formulate your strategy. Not just rushing to do things.

What previous Amazing Race team does your dynamic remind you of the most?
Alexandra: [Laughs.] I've thought of a few.
Sheridan: Natalie and Nadiya! [Laughs.] No, no, no.
Alexandra: [Pause.] I mean, Eswar and Aparna, on paper, are kind of similar. They're engineer siblings. I just don't know.
Sheridan: What about Hung and Chee?
Alexandra: We kind of think about Hung and Chee. They were a couple; we're siblings. Kind of similar way of thinking logical. I think their dynamic is sort of similar.
Sheridan: I like the Holderness family. I thought the two of them were good.
Alexandra: And they won. [Laughs.]
Sheridan: Also won! That wouldn't be bad, too. They were just sort of smart about everything.
Alexandra: Not cocky, held their cool.
Sheridan: They kept calm. They sort of kept a level head.
Alexandra: We used their packing list. [Laughs.]
Sheridan: [Laughs.] They had some tips.

What is one trait your partner possesses that you don't?
Alexandra: Well, I think Sheridan is probably a lot better at staying more calm in a kind of frantic situation, which is important for the race. And I will try to use some of that energy.
Sheridan: I think Alexandra has a higher tolerance for things. Higher tolerance for low sleep, for running more and pushing herself more. So probably that, to be honest.
Alexandra: That's fair.
