William "Bopper" Minton and Mark Jackson are best friends who competed on The Amazing Race 20. They are from the very small town of Manchester, Kentucky. They quickly became fan favorites, and were even given $10 000 by the hosts of The Talk. They became the first team to complete two Speed Bumps on the American version of the show, and were eliminated in 5th, even after taking the Fast Forward in India. Bopper & Mark were originally going to compete on The Amazing Race 24: All-Stars. However, only a day before the race, Bopper was diagnosed with pancreatitis and deemed unfit to race. Mark was able to continue racing with a new partner, Mallory of Gary & Mallory.
