|Teammates|| Tyler Denk|
Tyler Denk and James Branaman are a team of Models on the 10th season of The Amazing Race.
- Age: 29
- Hometown: Los Angeles, California
- Age: 27
- Hometown: Los Angeles, California
Tyler & James are best friends who have each had their share of hard knocks. Several years ago, both men found themselves in rehab for addiction problems and were forced to get to sober. Tyler & James have since embraced their sobriety and have a new lease on life, working as models in Los Angeles, California.
Tyler is admittedly the more intense of the two and has a shorter fuse than James. Since he has traveled the world as a model, Tyler is right at home in any foreign location. He considers himself to be athletic and intelligent and enjoys surfing and golfing.
James has also trekked around the globe as a model. He claims that he can handle stressful situations better than Tyler, a skill that will surely be tested from the moment Phil says the word "go." He describes himself as artistic and reliable and enjoys painting and photography.
Although their traveling experience certainly gives these charming guys a leg up on the competition, will their fun-loving personalities and big smiles be enough to carry them across the finish line first?
