Trevor Wadleigh and Christopher "Chris" Marchant are a team of Dating Violinists on The Amazing Race 30.

They showed a lot of promise in the first 4 legs, placing at the upper half of the standings. Once in France, they got horrendously lost. but they were saved by Joey & Tim's critical mistake at the Detour. As the last team in the running to depart, they were in dire straits the entire time in Leg 6. This left them on the 2nd flight to the Czech Republic. Cody & Jessica then U-Turned them, and while they did fine on both sides, it put them behind long enough that they were eliminated.
