It would take before any team on any version of the Race survived more bottom-2 finishes than them (Brent & Josh survived seven straight bottom-2 finishes before winning Season 21).They would finally be eliminated in New Zealand, when a combination of bad navigation early in the leg, followed by choosing the longer Detour choice (searching the mud pit instead of water sledging) left them in 5th.Nonetheless, their unique dynamic earned them a spot in All-Stars and the separate Brothers who own a pizza parlor together.As the only male team on the season, they were much closer in physique to Kevin & Drew than the Alpha Male teams that had dominated the first four seasons.Though not the strongest team, they were fan favorites who persisted to reach the penultimate leg, where they were done in when Colin zoomed by Karen on the ascender Roadblock, finishing 4th (the highest finishing all-female team until Season 10).This was the last season before the rule limiting the number of Roadblocks each team member could do was implemented, and as such, the moms were the only team in the top 4 to share a roughly equal number of Roadblocks between them (the three women who made the Final 3 completed only one Roadblock a piece).Many believe that if the rule had been in place during this season, the Moms would have easily been in the Final 3 (and call it "The Bowling Moms Rule" as a result).

As the show's first Inspirationally Disadvantaged team, Charla aimed to break stereotypes about little people, but instead they became known primarily for their (mostly Mirna's)...
In leg 7, their rivalry with Colin & Christie reached an explosive high, with the two teams scrambling to get them and their allies the better flight into Kenya.
Though the cousins initially seemed to win, their flight was delayed, putting them and the Bowling Moms on the last charter flight into Tanzania, and as the leg relied so much on traveling by foot, Charla's lack of foot speed proved to be their undoing, as they fell behind and finished 6th.
