Denise Williams and James Earl Corley are a mother and son who competed on The Amazing Race 27 as #TeamAlabama. They are both from Prattville, Alabama. The two came on the race with the hope of reconciling their relationship after James Earl revealed to his mother that he was gay. They were a fairly strong team, but suffered too much of a deficit on the tenth leg to survive. They were eliminated in 5th in Agra, India.
