Andrew Lappitt and Daniel "Dan" Honig are a team of Frat Boys on The Amazing Race 13.

The two friends constantly struggled throughout their time on the race as they frequently performed poorly in tasks and struggled with navigation. They also conflicted personality-wise with Andrew being more laidback and methodical, while Dan was more competitive and easily frustrated. This often resulted in them languishing at the back of the pack and constantly being at risk of elimination. However, to their own surprise, they were always able to survive due to other teams tending to make more fatal mistakes. Their persistence and good luck eventually brought them to the final 3 where they vowed not to be "chicken feed" for their competitors. However, any chance of a surprise victory went out the window after the duo got a taxi driver who was unfamiliar with the area, dooming them to a distant 3rd place.

Life couldn't be any better for these fraternity brothers. Andrew and Dan met while attending Arizona State University and the last four years have been filled with good times. Some of the Teams refer to Andrew and Dan as "Team Superbad."

Now they are ready for a life-altering experience. Andrew, a senior, is studying urban planning. He is hoping to make the most of their last year in college before they part ways. His laid-back appearance can be deceiving so count on him to be assertive, hands-on, and ready to take on anything that comes his way.

Dan graduated last December with a degree in Tourism Management. He enjoys bar hopping, sports and all things funny. Dan also loves to travel and hopes to use his extensive global travel knowledge and expertise to get a leg up on the competition.

These two say they can talk their way in or out of anything by cracking jokes and keeping the mood light, and they promise to bring more to the Race than any other Team. Look for them to always keep things entertaining in their own special way.[1]

Notes:
1: Andrew & Dan initially arrived 4th, but took a taxi to the Pit Stop instead of going on foot as stated in the clue. They were required by host Phil Keoghan to go back to the end of the Detour and walk back to the Pit Stop. This did not affect their placement.
