And the 20th season (yes, really!) of The Amazing Race comes to its exciting conclusion!
The CBS reality show broadcast its season finale tonight, and one of the three remaining teams won the million-dollar prize (and bragging rights, too!).
So which team won it all?
The final three teams, Dave and Rachel Brown, Art Velez and J.J. Carrell and Brendon Villegas and Rachel Reilly, found themselves in Honolulu, Hawaii for the last leg of the competition. Their first task, rappelling to the top of Waterfront Towers before rappelling down again, caused Reilly to have a bit of a meltdown.
After the next Road Block, which involved one team member shaving ice with a samurai sword, Dave and Rachel were in the lead, followed closely by Art and J.J. Here, Brendon and Rachel basically lost the race as they didn't properly read their clue and headed off to their next destination in a cab rather than the helicopter. Cue another meltdown from Rachel.
The final Road Block involved one team member riding down a hill on a wooden sled and then roll a rock into a target. Rachel and Dave crossed the finish line first and were starting to celebrate when they received bad news. They missed the last Road Block and had to go back. Even with that setback, Rachel and Dave were able to redo the task and still come in first.
Not only did Dave and Rachel take home the million-dollar prize, they also won the record for winningest team in Amazing Race history. Not too shabby, huh?!
Finishing in second were Art and J.J., while Rachel Reilly and Brendon came in third.
