Lucas Bocanegra and Brittany Austin are a team of Dating Lifeguards, and later Engaged Lifeguards, on The Amazing Race 30.

They were a middling team for the first few legs, barely escaping elimination in the third and fourth legs. However, they pulled ahead on the fifth leg and claimed first place, after which Lucas proposed to Brittany. From then on, they seemed to be a more put together team, though they weren't necessarily perceived as a threat, due to their occasional flaws with directions. After back-to-back first places on the seventh and eighth legs, Lucas lost his passport during a connecting flight. Through their tenacity, they were able to get a temporary passport and fly to Bahrain, but they were unfortunately too far behind at this point to survive and were eliminated overall in 5th.

Notes:


1: On Leg 7, teams switched partners. The rows on Leg 7 are in order of team name (i.e. Lucas is the first row, Brittany is the second). The finishes on Leg 7 are not averaged in with the other legs teams raced due to the twist. Lucas raced with Conor on the leg, while Brittany raced with Alex.
2: By the time Lucas & Brittany arrived at the Bahrain Financial Harbour in Manama, all teams had already checked in at the Pit Stop. Phil came out to their location in order to inform them of their elimination.

Post-Race

  • Brittany was featured in an Allure Work It video about her daily life as a lifeguard. Lucas also made an appearance.[2]
