Tim Tsao and Te Jay McGrath are a College Sweethearts team on the 25th season of The Amazing Race.

Nicknamed "T&T" by the other teams, they were a temperamental pair, bickering and complaining one moment and encouraging each other and being enthusiastic the next. They persevered through the Race, and proved to be adept at the mental and building challenges of the season, even claiming a 2nd Place on the first leg.

However, they were the only team to fully commit to the nearly impossible Flag task instead of the tedious Shine side, even after seeing all the other teams quit and go to the other Detour. By the time Tim was able to convince Te Jay that he couldn't grab the flag, they finally decided to switch Detours but were so far behind that their elimination was all but guaranteed.
