Erin and Joslyn were the fourth team eliminated on Season 28 of The Amazing Race.

After traveling the world together, best friends and YouTube personalities Erin and Joslyn came up short during the latest episode of The Amazing Race, which meant host Phil Keoghan had to give them the disappointing news that their adventure was over.

While the Clevver hosts didn't proceed to the next leg of the journey, they each walked away from the mat grateful for all the experience had given them

Read what Erin and Joslyn had to say following their exciting experience on The Amazing Race and their advice for viewers who have the travel bug in them, too. 
1. Do you think if you hadn't spent so much time searching for

1. Do you think if you hadn't spent so much time searching for "lunch," you would've avoided elimination?

Erin: "The edit made it seem like we spent a lot of time looking for lunch, but, in actuality, it was only a couple of minutes. Honestly, the thing that affected our elimination most was my position the mountain. By the time Ashley, Sheri, and I were all lined up, the wind had significantly changed direction.

My position was not getting the right kind of wind gusts that we needed. In fact, we waited there for about 30 minutes with no wind until my pilot decided to move us down the mountain to Ashley's position and that's when we finally took off."

Joslyn: "The way our lunch search played out still has me cracking up for a few reasons. Yes, we were slightly confused about it, but it was not nearly that epic! Granted, we did search for about five minutes for the lunch, but a handful of other teams still were on the mountain also seemed confused by this.

Moreover, let's get serious—a baguette does not constitute lunch! That is not a balanced meal. So, I partially think this was meant to add some comedy and confusion to our day."
2. Erin, how did you manage to get through your fears—like claustrophobia and fish—this season?

2. Erin, how did you manage to get through your fears—like claustrophobia and fish—this season?

Erin: "Honestly, it was having a partner who wouldn't let me dwell on them. Joslyn is such a 'mind over matter' kind of woman and it certainly helped to have her talk me through some of that. Also, I knew that so many of our fans would be watching and would be looking to see how I handle adversity.

We all have challenges we face in life, but I wanted to show them that if you make the decision to accomplish something despite your fear, you really can overcome it."
3. What was your best memory from the Race?

3. What was your best memory from the Race?

Erin: "There are two! Being a producer, I've always looked up to the [production] team that put The Amazing Race together. Seeing how the show's creators, Bertram [van Munster] and Elise [Doganieri], are so involved with making this show #amazing is one of the most inspirational experiences I had on the Race.

Especially Elise, who is such an example of female empowerment! They were so involved and there with us during every leg. They're the ultimate power couple. Then, of course, you have the leg in Chamonix, France, where we literally were traversing snow covered mountains. It doesn't get more exciting than that!"

Joslyn: "One of my favorite memories from the Race was when we were all on the mat together in Chamonix. We had all had the craziest, most stressful yet fun day, and it was such a treat to be on the mat with all the other teams, which we later learned has only happened one other time in The Amazing Race history—and that was during an all-star season.

What you didn't really see was that we all enjoyed a five-minute long dance party together as a group on the mat with some musical stylings from the local musicians at the Pit Stop. It was ridiculous and we were all delirious, but it was so fun."
4. What lessons did you learn from your experience?

4. What lessons did you learn from your experience?

Erin: "I learned that I pack way too much stuff. I love to be prepared for anything while traveling, but if we were to do the Race again, we would literally pack 25-percent of what we brought this time. Running with 25 pounds strapped to your back is not conducive to winning a race."

Joslyn: "I learned so many lessons, both practical travel lessons and bigger-picture life lessons. I've basically perfected the ability to book an airline ticket and get the best seat possible, while also becoming best friends with the ticket agent. (They are always the best!)

More importantly, though, this experience just reinstated my belief in the idea that life is short and if there are adventures you want to have, people you want to meet, and things you want to do—even scary things—you just have to make them happen. And you really have to harness every awesome opportunity that comes your way."
5. What was your favorite challenge and favorite place you visited this season?

5. What was your favorite challenge and favorite place you visited this season?

Erin: "Chamonix, France. I've only been outside of the U.S. one time in my life and Chamonix is one of those places I've always heard about but only dreamt about going to. We were literally transported into the most unreal Christmas card I've ever seen.

The last time I went skiing, I took out an entire school of children who were on a field trip. But it was worth the risk of possibly injuring myself (or others) in some crazy snow challenge to be there and see that place in person."

Joslyn: "Without a doubt, Chamonix was my favorite leg of the Race overall. Beyond the incredible adrenaline challenges we got to take on, the scenery was absolutely crazy-amazing and since it was early in the ski season, our Race cast and crew were pretty much the only people in the whole town.

I fully expected Santa and Mrs. Claus to pop out at any given moment. It was that breathtaking and surreal. Beyond that, the Mariachi Detour in Mexico City and the Mud Volcano Roadblock were incredible, sort of outer-body experiences and definitely things you could only experience on The Amazing Race."
6. Would you ever be on The Amazing RAce again, if given the opportunity?

6. Would you ever be on The Amazing RAce again, if given the opportunity?

Erin: "Yes, yes, and yes."

Joslyn: "Yes, yes, yes! May I leave now? My bag is packed. Seriously, I'm not kidding."
