For the Eric & Danielle raced in The Amazing Race: All-Stars (2007), see Eric & Danielle.

Eric Guiffreda and Daniel Guiffreda are a team of Twin Brothers on The Amazing Race 30.

Eric & Daniel struggled early on with navigation and vehicular problems, seeing them regularly place near the bottom of the pack. However, their tendency to stay away from inter-team drama and sense of humor allowed them to form a working relationship with Henry & Evan, which would help carry them to the final six. Though seemingly in a good position to survive the eighth leg ahead of two teams who were U-Turned, Eric & Daniel's lack of rhythm led them to struggle the most with a performance challenge, dropping them to last and resulting in their elimination in 6th place.

What scares you most about traveling? Nothing about travel scares me. I enjoy everything about it.
What excites you most about traveling? The unknown, the newness of each place, meeting different kinds of people, being away from the normal routine of life, and the feeling of freedom to see and try new things. And, no cell phones.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would love to visit Switzerland and see the Swiss Alps! They look awesome from pictures and to be able to ski and stay in a remote place on top of mountains.
What do you hope to accomplish by running the race (other than winning $1 million)? Awesome once-in-a-lifetime memories we will have forever and be able to share with our children as well as growing ever closer as we overcome new types of challenges and situations.
