The Amazing Race Wiki


Carol Rosenfeld and Brandy Snow are a Dating team on The Amazing Race 16.

Characterized as "mean" by several of their competitors and constantly the targets of derogatory comments regarding their sexuality, Carol & Brandy notably developed a heated rivalry with Brent & Caite that lasted throughout their time in the race. Carol & Brandy tended to look down on their rivals' intelligence in confessionals, while Louie & Michael alleged that they had made comments about Caite's past as a beauty pageant contestant during the first leg, though the comment itself was never shown on-screen. Nevertheless, Carol & Brandy proved to be a strong team in their own right, making it to the final five despite having a tendency to bicker amongst themselves. Once in Singapore, the animosity between the two teams came to a head when Brent & Caite used the U-Turn on Carol & Brandy, sealing their fate and eliminating them in 5th place, but not without one last confrontation at the Finish Line.
