Brittany Oldehoff and Jessica VerSteeg are a team of Instagram Models on The Amazing Race 28.
Brittany & Jessica formed a working relationship with Sheri & Cole early in the race, with Jessica and Cole even working together at the Roadblock in the third leg. In the following leg, however, the models dropped to the back of the pack after not being able to find their chosen Detour option, following Sheri & Cole to the other Detour instead. They were then left out of the rampant answer-sharing at both the Detour and the Roadblock after the other teams saw an opportunity to ensure their own safety. This caused Brittany & Jessica to barely miss the train that all the other teams were able to catch, resulting in their elimination in 9th place.
