Joey Graceffa and Meghan Camarena are a team of YouTube Hosts on the 22nd season of The Amazing Race, and the second all-star season of The Amazing Race.

They brought their upbeat attitudes, friendliness, humor and manic energy with them onto the Race, resulting in them becoming fan favorites. The other teams were not so loving, as they were generally annoyed by the YouTube Hosts, especially Max & Katie, and they resented Joey & Meghan for forming an alliance with Jessica & John and Mona & Beth. Though the alliance was intended to target Bates & Anthony, it ended up doing the opposite and the other teams U-Turned Joey & Meghan twice in their season. After Jessica & John's elimination, they kept close to only Mona & Beth, making it much harder for them when they found themselves racing against their only friends, fighting to avoid elimination. While both teams had been U-Turned, Mona & Beth beat them and they found themselves out in 5th Place.

The YouTube Hosts were asked back for the second All-Stars, but as expected of a team who only finished above 4th once in their original season, they struggled, and never finished above 9th Place. After getting stuck on the later flight to Malaysia, three hours behind the lead teams, their elimination in 9th Place was guaranteed when they made the fatal mistake of letting their cab go in a rural area.
