Caitlin King and Brittany Fletcher are a team of Best Friends on The Amazing Race 21.
After a strong showing in the first leg, Caitlin & Brittany struggled enough to fall to the back of the pack in the second leg. Unfortunately, this deficit carried over into the next leg, with the two friends being left on the later train with three other teams, battling to avoid elimination. They then struggled with communicating with their becak driver, getting lost from destination to destination. Despite being offered a lifeline when Gary & Will were U-Turned, Caitlin & Brittany still found themselves racing to avoid last with the substitute teachers. In a becak race to the Pit Stop, the two teams' drivers went in opposite directions in a fork in the road. Caitlin & Brittany's driver was wrong again, leading to their elimination in 9th place.
