Tiffany Chantell Torres and Krista DeBono are a team of Former Cheerleaders on The Amazing Race 27.

Tiffany & Krista started out as underdogs whom their competitors did not take seriously as threats, especially given their low placements early in the race. The cheerleaders eventually found their groove, however, and began racing near the front of the pack. This, along with their strong bonds with the other teams, allowed them to make it to the final four. They found themselves in the lead during the penultimate leg in Hong Kong, but were bunched with the other teams on the ferry to Macau. Krista then struggled at the Roadblock, losing them the lead and allowing Justin & Diana to catch up and pass them. Although Justin & Diana would receive a penalty at the Pit Stop that allowed the cheerleaders to catch up, Krista's multiple attempts at the Roadblock, along with getting into a taxi that got them lost, resulted in Tiffany & Krista checking in just after Justin & Diana's penalty expired, resulting in their elimination in 4th place.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: We are both very stubborn and will need to learn how to communicate better if there is a situation when we both think we are right, when in fact one of us is wrong.
Pet peeve about your teammate: When things don't go her way, she tends to talk under her breath instead of talking aloud and resolving the issue.
