Brendon Crawley and Jackson Dening are a team of Cowboys and the Official Winners on The Amazing Race Australia 5.

They often finished in strong positions and legs wins couple of times, but found themselves fumbling in tasks that dropped them to the bottom of the pack, especially with eating tasks that showed mediocre finishes throughout the race, only non-elimination legs and an alliance saving (with Salvages) from their last-place finishes. They started to pick up strong form as they reached New South Wales as the first team to make the final. While Jackson physically struggled in the final, they built a lead through a turn-based Roadblock and doing exceptional in the puzzle task that covered their fatal mistake in Canberra, and despite being looked to being taken over by Ashleigh & Amanda to the finish line, the lead was just safe to insured their victory.

These true-blue cowboys and young dads are saddling up for the adventure of a lifetime!

Brendon and Jackson met through rodeoing over 10 years ago and have been friends ever since.

While third-generation cowboy Brendon is ranked number two in Australia for bareback riding, Jackson has four rodeo championship titles under his belt.

Family's always front and centre for these adrenaline lovers, so it’s no surprise they’d use the $250,000 prize money on their kids… and a new set of teeth for Brendon.
