Nadiya was the first castmate voted out, but Natalie made it through the merge. They are still best friends with the ”Dream Team” of Trey and Lexi and Jaymes.
Rob and Brennan
Season 1 winners
The original winners—and winners of the first leg ever—are still friends and huge fans of the show. Rob is still an attorney, but now he splits his time doing that and also writing for film and television. Brennan is also still an attorney, but has continued his travel; he has visited more than 20 new countries since the Race, and he used his time on TAR as a way to raise money for charities.

Brent and Josh
Season 21 winners
Goat farmers from New York seemed like unlikely winners—but they did just that in season 21. Their biggest news post-Race? They got married on their farm in 2013. They used their winner’s loot to pay off their farm as well as help other small farmers. They created the Mortgage Lifter line of pasta sauces using farm-grown heirloom tomatoes and give 25 percent of the profits back to other American small farms. Says Josh, ”We hope to be able to give back many thousands more this year and change other farmers’ lives just as The Amazing Race changed ours.”
Brook and Claire
Season 17 runners-up
The TV hosts came in second place in their season, but let’s be honest: They’re most memorable for that watermelon incident. Brook is now a host for FOX Sports San Diego, where she busts out the video with pro athletes to give her ”street cred.” Both women are married, and Claire has two children, who call Brook ”Auntie Bam.” Claire says she’s most often recognized in the produce section of the supermarket: ”I can’t tell you how many watermelons I’ve signed.”
Jeff and Jordan
Season 16 (7th place)
CBS aficionados will recognize Jeff and Jordan from Big Brother 11, where they met and fell in love. From there they went on to Amazing Race 16 and Big Brother 13. Jeff currently freelances for CBS.com, and Jordan finished cosmetology school. In September 2014, they returned to the Big Brother house, and Jeff proposed to Jordan on national TV. They have plans to marry in the fall of 2015.
Connor and Dave
Season 22 (8th place); Season 24: All-Stars winners
Since their victory, not too much has changed for the father and son, who are still traveling. They recently went sailing in the Virgin Islands and are planning their Travelocity trip win from season 22 for 2015.

The friends continue to team up: Zev stars in Justin’s comedy Welcome to the Jungle, which counts Jean-Claude Van Damme, Adam Brody, Kristen Schaal, and Megan Boone as producers. They also do weekly hour-long shows with friends The Rev Kev and Victoria Brown on TradioV.com called ”Let’s Get Digital!” where the one and only Phil Keoghan has been known to pop in. They continue to watch the Race religiously while waiting by the phone. Laughs Justin, ”Third time’s a charm, right?”

Caroline and Jennifer
Season 22 (4th place); Season 24: All-Stars runners-up
Caroline and Jennifer entered season 22 as the blonde country singers, but a fourth place finish proved them to be tough competitors.

Since finishing the Race, they have been in the studio with the legendary Tony Brown making new music, and Jen has a single out with country artist Eric Paslay called ”She Don’t Love You.”
