'Amazing Race' sibling duo with NC ties eliminated

Posted November 7, 2011

— A sibling duo with ties to the Triangle was eliminated Sunday on "The Amazing Race." 

Justin and Jennifer Young are the nephew and niece of North Carolina Crime Control and Public Safety Secretary Reuben Young. 

The siblings were the last team to reach the pit stop in Malawi. They fell behind when Jennifer Young forgot to bring along a clue containing instructions for a challenge. The time proved too much to make up. 

Justin Young earned his medical degree after serving as student-body president at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Jennifer Young has a master's degree in special education.

They reside in Georgia.

    I was really pulling for them last night. I'm pulling for the older couple now.
