Kellie Wells-Brinkley and LaVonne Idlette are a team of Former Olympic Hurdlers on The Amazing Race 32.
In Trinidad and Tobago Kellie & LaVonne had a good position throughout the first half of the leg, but everything fell apart at the Steel Drum Detour. Kellie started to get frustrated at herself when she couldn't quite master the drum, causing DeAngelo & Gary to pass them. In the end, they managed to reach the Pit Stop in time, but only being ahead of eleventh place Nathan & Cody. In the next leg, the hurdlers had taxi troubles, which mixed with the language barrier and a late leaving time, everything culminated into a last-place finish.
