Janelle Marie Pierzina DeSanto and Britney Elizabeth Haynes Godwin are a team of Friends on The Amazing Race 31.

Their bad luck and occasional struggle with directions caused them to finish in the bottom 4 in four of the first 5 legs. In leg 6, after getting stuck in traffic on their way to the National Mosque, they fell to last place. Janelle then misinterpreted the clue during the roadblock, pushing them further behind. Despite having a chance to redeem themselves in the Head to Head, they ultimately lost to Rachel & Elissa, resulting in their elimination in 8th place.
