What scares you most about traveling?: Getting very lost.
What excites you most about traveling?: New perspectives, new sights, new people and new experiences.
What qualities do you hope your partner has?: Freestyling and/or beatboxing skills, a positive attitude, excels at puzzles and navigation, never gives up and likes to have fun!
What qualities will be hard for you to put up with in a partner?: Negativity, drama, arrogance, too serious and anti-fun.
What do you think will be the biggest challenge you and your teammate face?: Getting caught up in small moments and losing sight of the big picture.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why?: New Zealand - Phil’s homeland and a place of great, mountainous beauty!
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)?: Connect with a group of unique and fascinating individuals, push my limits and intimately experience new cultures.
Hometown: Highland Ranch, Colo.
Current occupation: College Student
Describe what you do: I study applied math and economics at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I also served as a drum major of CU's marching band for the past three years.
3 words to describe you: Optimistic, driven and juicy.
Favorite hobbies: Anything musical, hiking, baseball, watching The Walking Dead or The Amazing Race, attending college sporting events and everything related to The Lion King.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?: Either winning a full-ride scholarship to college or being a cast member on The Amazing Race.
What scares you most about traveling?: I don't have a great sense of direction, so I’m most worried about getting completely lost in a foreign land.
What excites you most about traveling?: Getting to see the world! I’ve never been outside of the country, so experiencing different cultures will be awesome. I’m also excited to put myself in situations that the average human would never find themselves in.
What qualities do you hope your partner has?:I'm looking for someone who can stay positive in any situation. I want someone who understands that the race will not be a smooth ride, and they must be able to keep calm in the most stressful times.
What qualities will be hard for you to put up with in a partner?: Someone who gives up easily.
What do you think will be the biggest challenge you and your teammate face?: I feel like my partner may underestimate me because I’m one of the youngest racers, so it’s possible that I’ll have to prove myself to them early on.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why?: Definitely Italy. It has a rich arts and music culture and pasta is my favorite food.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)?: Being on this show is my biggest dream, so I just hope to push myself harder than I ever have before and enjoy the ride!

1: Becca & Floyd initially checked in 5th, however, Floyd soon discovered he lost his passport, and were told they couldn't check in without it. They were able to find Floyd's passport, and the second time they checked in, they dropped to 8th.
2: Becca & Floyd U-Turned Liz & Michael, who had already passed the U-Turn point and were therefore unaffected by it.
3: Becca & Floyd received a 10 minute penalty for speeding. They served it on the racecourse, thus didn't affect their placement, and was left unaired.
4: On the way to Đền Thái Vi, Floyd became dizzy due to fatigue from the Roadblock, and medics were called out to their location. Long after all the other teams checked in, Phil came out to his & Becca's location and eliminated them.
- First team to not use an Express Pass without being eliminated.
