Steven "Steve" Smith and Allison "Allie" Lyn Smith are a Father/Daughter team on The Amazing Race 16.
The father and daughter duo emerged as one of the strongest and most consistent teams in the race, regularly finishing in the top half of the pack. They notably chose to abandon their backpacks in the seventh leg after forgetting them on the race course, resolving to run the rest of the race with only the clothes on their back in order to maintain their lead and score a first place finish. In the following leg, however, they wasted time searching for their chosen Detour option before switching to the other one, then switching back to their original choice after struggling with the second option. This put them far enough behind their competitors that they were eliminated in 6th place.
