Christopher "Chris" Hammons and Bret LaBelle are a team of Friends on The Amazing Race 31.

In the beginning, they struggled a lot in the challenges, specifically Bret, who frequently got exhausted. This caused them to fall near the bottom of the pack and place last in leg 3. However, after being given a second chance thanks to leg 3 being a non-elimination leg, they picked up the pace and placing in the top 4 in four of the next 5 legs. They even came close to winning in leg 8. In leg 9, despite getting on an early flight, which allowed them to take the lead, they struggled in the Detour, causing them to switch Detours twice. Despite seemingly having a chance due to Colin & Christie forgetting their gnome, they were unable to catch up and ultimately eliminated in 6th place.
