Kym Perfetto and Alli Forsythe are a team of Urban Bike Racers on The Amazing Race 25.

Kym & Alli brought their free-spirited and fun-loving natures to the race, while also proving to be competent racers. Their physicality and competitiveness allowed them to consistently race near the front of the pack, forming a rivalry with fellow frontrunners Misti & Jim. However, they also displayed a sense of individualism, not wanting to socialize with their competitors, causing them be targeted as threats. Ultimately, it was their gamble to attempt a surfing Fast Forward, which they lost out to professional surfers Adam & Bethany, that sealed Kym & Alli's fate, as they could not recover the time lost, leading to their elimination in 5th place.
