BJ & TYLER
Best Friends
Bio:
BJ & Tyler are bohemian best buds who first met four years ago during the Semester at Sea program, where they shared the experience of sailing around the world. One of their most memorable moments was starting a dance party in the streets of downtown Guilin, China, which turned into a mass gathering of hundreds of Chinese men. They have been friends ever since, whether bouncing on trampolines at Burning Man or spontaneously swimming in the San Francisco Bay.

Records:

-Getting 3 wins in a row on the final 3 Legs.
-Highest average placing of all winning teams (2.33) for 5 seasons, record taken away by Tammy & Victor of Season 14 (2.27), then taken by Meghan & Cheyne of Season 15 (2.00)
