Nancy and Emily Hoyt were a team in the The Amazing Race 1.
Nancy and Emily are the only parent-and-child Team on THE AMAZING RACE. They've enjoyed traveling extensively together, but have had a few disagreements along the way. They're a strong Team for THE AMAZING RACE because while mother Nancy is good at planning and considerate of others, daughter Emily is impulsive and competitive.

1: There was an unaired Roadblock where one teammate had to cook a whole ostrich egg for the whole team to eat. On the DVD release, it was shown that Emily completed the task.
2: Nancy & Emily attempted the Public option of the Detour but skipped it and took a cab (to the next route marker) after growing frustrated of not finding a bus for many hours. They initially arrived 4th at the Pit Stop, but their decision to deliberately forfeit the Detour incurred them a 24-hour time penalty, landing them at last place.
