Hung Nguyen and Chee Lee are a Married Parents team on The Amazing Race 32.

Hung and Chee started the race very strong, finishing first in the first two legs and establishing themselves in a good position as a part of the Mine Five alliance. They proved to be a force to be reckoned with by placing in the back half of the pack in only two legs, and finishing in the bottom two in only the final two legs. After the entire Mine Five alliance reached the final 5, they joined a final 3 alliance with fellow allies Will & James and Riley & Maddison, who all made it to the final leg together. In the final leg, they were close behind Will & James until the first roadblock, where Chee missed the baby on his first time looking through the King Cakes, pushing them further behind the frontrunners. Unfortunately, this ultimately put Hung & Chee far enough behind that they were unable to catch up to Will & James and finished in 2nd Place.
