Keith Tollefson and Whitney Duncan are an Engaged team on the 25th season of The Amazing Race.

They met on Survivor: South Pacific, and spent the majority of their five legs bickering with each other, even having Phil call them out for it. They rallied Michael & Scott and Lisa & Michelle to quit the Roadblock with them, although that did not seem to hinder their performance as they breezed through the physical tasks and generally finished near the top of the pack. Despite leaving the first two tasks in 1st Place in Leg 5, they struggled with the Detour and by the time they decided to switch sides, they were already in last place. With Shelley & Nici having U-Turned them in retaliation for a confrontation at the Roadblock, they were guaranteed an 8th Place finish.
