Erwin Cho and Godwin Cho are a team of Brothers on The Amazing Race 10.
Erwin & Godwin tended to move slowly due to their indecisiveness, causing them to fall to the back of the pack often. This resulted in them joining the aptly named "Back Pack" alliance with David & Mary, Kellie & Jamie, Lyn & Karlyn, and Tom & Terry, with the teams often helping each other along the way. Erwin & Godwin's physical fitness resulted in them finishing physical tasks ahead of their allies, though they would often wait for them, reasoning that this was simply part of their nature, often to the derision of other teams. After making it to the final five, the brothers flight to Ukraine was delayed, resulting in a three-way battle to avoid last place with Lyn & Karlyn and Rob & Kimberly. Although they had every intention of working with their allies to eliminate Rob & Kimberly, their indecisiveness and poor navigation skills caused Lyn & Karlyn to abandon them and surge ahead on their own. The brothers' demise was cemented when they were pulled over by police on the way to the Pit Stop, resulting in their elimination in 5th place.

Erwin & Godwin are super competitive brothers from San Francisco, California. Although they are both overachievers, Godwin feels that he grew up in the shadow of his "perfect" Harvard-educated older brother. He believes the Race will provide a great opportunity for him to showcase his talents and prove that he is as capable as Erwin.
Erwin, a manager for an insurance company, describes himself as being calm, confident and creative. He claims the most exciting moment of his life was his first plane ride "when the world just opened up," and he's been traveling ever since. Godwin, a financial analyst, is the more ambitious of the two and is not afraid to take risks.
The brothers enjoy working out together and discussing new business ideas. Both men are well-traveled and enjoy the excitement that comes with visiting new places. The siblings are thrilled to have the chance to travel the globe, compete for a million dollars and do some brotherly bonding along the way.
