Absolutely: Spermatozoa can survive for several hours at room temperature; however, pregnancy cannot be induced without direct introduction of the semen into the vaginal tract.

Hmmm: A situation in which this would be a possibility would be full of imagination, with mind boggling scenarios which you would make for an amazing hollywood movie. Having said that... Nope
Dr. Harold Fields

Sperm: It would be unusual for sperm to live outside the human body however if this Kleenex is in direct contact with your vagina IMMEDIATELLY after ejaculation it would be conceivable that you could get pregnant You should be using contraception

See below: Technically, you only need 1 sperm to penetrate an egg. So, the short answer is 1. However, in each ejaculate, there are probably millions trying to be the first to fertilize a released egg.

Can sperm travel through two pairs of underwear and get me pregnant?

Not likely: While nothing is impossible, not only would the sperm have to get through 2 pairs of underwear, it would then have to get inside your vagina, through the cervix and through the fallopian tubes to meet with your egg. So - while not impossible i suppose, incredibly unlikely. Start using reliable birth control and good luck!
