Shelley Porter and Nici Porter are a Mother/Daughter team on the 25th season of The Amazing Race.

Long-time fans of The Amazing Race, it was their dream to be on the show. However their relationship dynamic was particularly volatile: having heated arguments in Denmark, only to reconcile and be caring towards each other the next leg in Morocco. Nici's frequent meltdowns, coupled with Shelley's aggressive gameplay, turned them into one of the most divisive teams of the season. Though they were eliminated in 7th Place due to getting lost driving around in Morocco, Phil noted that they still managed to resolve some of their relationship issues.
