Brian Thomas Smith and Greg Smith are a team of Brothers on The Amazing Race 7.

After flipping their car over while driving through Botswana in the sixth leg, Brian & Greg seemed destined for elimination, but miraculously caught up and narrowly defeated Ray & Deana in a footrace to the Pit Stop to survive. However, in addition to misreading their clue by going to the wrong watertower, the deficit to the other teams proved to be large enough that they were not able to catch up in the following leg, finishing in 6th place.
