Henry Zhang and Evan Lynyak are a team of Dating Debaters on The Amazing Race 30

Both performed well placing in the top five in 10 legs. Despite being in danger of elimination in legs 2 and 10 they survived thanks to Henry learning from his mistakes in the former and a non-elimination leg occurring in the latter. While they seemed to be in a position to officially win as Henry had the puzzle done correctly first in the last part of the final leg, Henry second-guessed himself and switched his answers, allowing Cody & Jessica to finish the puzzle and win the race. Henry and Evan managed to finish their puzzle and arrive at the finish line second.
