Jerry Lee Eaves and Frank Emmanuel Eaves are a Father/Son team on The Amazing Race 32.

After barely escaping elimination in the second leg, Jerry & Frank immediately found themselves in trouble at the start of the third leg when they could not find their first clue in Brazil. They then made the fatal mistake of not reading their clue properly, leaving the items they had purchased, only to later realize that they had to go back and retrieve them, wasting time and dropping them firmly in last place. Any hope they had of catching up was dashed when Kaylynn & Haley used the U-Turn on them to save their allies, Leo & Alana, ensuring the father-son duo's elimination in 9th place.
