Elliot Weber and Andrew Weber are a team of Twins on The Amazing Race 20.

Though young and physically fit, the Elliot & Andrew tended to waste time completing tasks, frequently dropping them to the back of the pack. In the third leg, they struggled at the Detour, taking hours to complete the task, putting them in a race with Vanessa & Ralph to avoid elimination. Elliot was then beaten by Ralph at the subsequent Roadblock by minutes, leaving the twins to narrowly be defeated in a race to the Pit Stop and eliminated in 9th place.

Connection to Teammate: Twin Brother
Current Occupation: Musician
Describe what you do: I'm a singer/songwriter based out of Phoenix, Arizona.
How will these skills help you win The Race? Music is a universal language and it's very competitive. I will take my aspirations for music and life, and use them to race for first.

Favorite hobbies: Music, soccer and working out.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Tommy Lee
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Sean Connery
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Finishing my last record. It was a grueling process, but a great product. Be on the look out for it in spring 2012.
What scares you most about traveling? Nothing much, but I guess not having a parachute.
What excites you most about traveling? The unexpected in terms of culture and people…I love to people watch.
Pet peeve about your teammate: He doesn't stick up for himself enough.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would love to go to Australia.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope my brother and I will grow even closer and begin many new chapters in our lives personally and together.

Andrew

Age: 28
Hometown: Menlo Park, California
Connection to Teammate: Twin Brother
Current Occupation: MLS player
Describe what you do: I am a professional goal keeper in Major League Soccer. Day in and day out I train and compete to keep my skills up so that I am ready for the season beginning to end.
How will these skills help you win The Race? Being an athlete I am always pushing myself and my teammates to be the best. Having this mindset and attitude allows me to put my team in a position to be successful.
Three words to describe you: Confident, humble and level.
Favorite hobbies: I enjoy playing with my dog, Harley, going to concerts and outdoor activities such as hiking, body boarding, etc.
What famous person reminds you of yourself? Professional soccer player Iker Casillas
What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Brandon Boyd (from the rock group "Incubus")
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Becoming a professional athlete.
What scares you most about traveling? Nothing really scares me about traveling. Long trips can get irritable but I manage. It's part of my job. I guess at times it can get uncomfortable/frustrating if you are in a country where you don't speak the language or are not able to communicate with the locals.
What excites you most about traveling? Seeing the world and experiencing all the different cultures across the globe.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: I feel that we communicate very well. But I hope we can get past the times when we are dishonest with each other. With both of us being super competitive there are times where we want to do things "my" way instead of doing it together or "our" way.
Pet peeve about your teammate: He has a short fuse at times and like me, he can be impulsive without thinking thing through. There are circumstances where he doesn't put himself first. He doesn't practice what he preaches. He needs to stop making the same mistakes.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would love to venture to the beaches of Thailand because they are amazing. I love the water and the photos look exotic.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope it can bring us together and make our bond that much stronger. Hopefully we can work through some of the things that we need to sort out in our relationship i.e. work more for each other and not as individuals. Win or lose he is my best friend and we'll always have each other's back.[1]
