Frances "Fran" Lazarus and Bernard "Barry" Lazarus are a Married 40 Years team on The Amazing Race 9.

They frequently missed things in plain sight, but after a slow start, they managed to make it two-thirds of the way through the season, mostly because they were the only team with any ability to navigate. They are the oldest team in the series to win a leg without a Fast Forward, and Phil was noticeably shocked when they arrived first in the 7th leg. However, their luck ran out in the following leg when the cab they called ahead for didn't show up at the Fremantle Ferry, and they fell behind the other teams, finishing 5th.
