Going to Mexico! In Colombia teams got dirty Blair, your hair looks great! You should do a video tutorial about it.
and mistakes were made.
Hagan and Marty are running.
That mistake just cost us the race.
The game took a turn in Switzerland It's not that I think no-one will work with me, it's that I know no-one will work with me.
and reached new heights in the French Alps.

Scott and Blair, Zach and Rachel Brodie and Kurt, Burnie and Ashley, I'm sorry to tell you that you have been eliminated from the race.
And after 11 legs only three teams remain.
Leg one was love-fest.
Leg two - get rid of someone.
For the first half of the race, Tyler and Korey were in cruise control You are team number two.
- Yeah! - A pretty good way to start.
- You are team number one.
- BOTH: Yeah! .
and having a blast.
- (BANG!) - Ah! (LAUGHS) But after a dramatic mid-race stumble I messed up.
the best friends took out their main rivals They're the biggest threat, we've got to do it.
Phil, we're coming! .
and returned to form winning three consecutive legs on their way to the final three.
You are team number one! Yeah! (LAUGHS) Go! Out of the gate, Dancers, Dana and Matt, made all the right moves.
You are team number one.
BOTH: Yeah! But while they continued to excel - This way? - I don't know! .
their relationship had some bumps in the road.
Sometimes you just need to know when to tap out.
No! Through it all, the engaged couple kept their eye on the prize Two more trips and we're done.
and earned a spot in the final three.
You are one of the teams racing to the finish line.
I feel like I've messed up.
Sheri and Cole got off to a shaky start I hate that I'm letting Cole down.
but with their positive attitudes Yeah, Momma! Go, Momma! I believe in you.
the ultimate underdogs conquered their fears Whoo-hoo! He did it! .
teetered on the brink of elimination You're still racing.
This is a non-elimination.
No! .
and persevered into the final three.
Coming up tonight, one of these three teams will win $1 million That's money, baby.
and The Amazing Race.
Ready to kick some butt.
I want to tell you where you will be racing to in the final leg - Los Angeles, California.
- Whoo! - (LAUGHTER) We're going home, baby.
And I have some more good news for you.
For the first time ever on The Amazing Race, you're all getting an upgrade on the flight home.
You will be pampered in premium class.
(CHEERING AND LAUGHTER) There's $1 million at stake.
It's waiting for one of you, who's it going to be? - Us.
- Over here.
(LAUGHTER) I have a feeling it's going to be a competitive one.
I want to wish you all the very best and I will see you at the finish line.
Our final three teams are leaving the Chinese city of Shenzhen and will fly more than 7,000 miles to Los Angeles, California.
Once there, they must make their way to Angelus Plaza in downtown Los Angeles and search for their next clue.
Korey, ritzy! TYLER: It's a very surreal to be leaving in the final three.
I know that the other two teams are bringing their A-game but we are going to win this entire thing.
My God.
We need to win now because we're spoilt.
MATT: It's going to take a lot to beat these teams but we've been talking a lot about our communication and we feel like we've been getting stronger as the legs progress.
These are nice.
I have a family of eight, I've got two boys in college, I'm about to have a third kid in college - we could use the money.
COLE: We're giving it everything that we've got to win this.
Yeah, just because we're super nice and fun Here, do it, do it.
- Pow.
- Pow.
We're ready to get to Los Angeles and kill it! Let's get some rest and win $1 million in LA.
Give me a kiss.
Models living the high life.
(LAUGHS) Alright, let's go, let's go.
Taxi line, come on.
Where are the drivers? Angelus Plaza.
It's Angelus Plaza.
Thank you.
We're in a very important race for $1 million.
Korey and Tyler, they're in this cab right here so we're actually, like, neck and neck in first place.
Today is going to be the day we get our first first.
- Yeah, this will be our first first.
- The only first that matters.
Are we getting close? - Very close.
- Oh, good.
We're going to get you another million, you know.
Oh, yes, please.
This is Angelus Plaza.
Thank you so much.
Right there.
Angelus Plaza.
It's right there.
Ty, do you think it's at top of the stairs? Do you think it's up here? I mean, we'd better just check.
There it is.
"Who's ready to take a leap of faith?" Phil: America's second largest city has dozens of skyscrapers and with $1 million on the line, teams will have to take a flying leap off one of them and grab their clue which is tantalisingly dangling 170 feet above the ground.
Let's hope they get it right the first time otherwise they'll have to repel to the ground, returned to the roof and keep on trying till they have a clue.
- I guess you do it.
- Alright, I'll do it.
- (SIGHS) - What do you want? - I don't know.
- You say.
What if the next Roadblock is physical or something? It's your choice.
- OK, you do it.
- Alright.
I'm going to do it.
- You've got this, babe.
Good luck.
- Thanks, babe.
Is this the Plaza? It's pretty dead.
You keep eyes open.
Do you think we've got to go up to the top of the building? I don't know.
Oh, my God.
"Who's ready to take a leap of faith?" I am.
My momma is.
COLE: I have a major fear of heights.
I told him all along that if it comes to jumping, even though I am afraid of heights, that I would I would just do it.
- Mom, you've got this.
This is all you.
- OK, I got it.
You've got it, Mom.
I didn't realise we were that far ahead of Tyler and Korey.
Dude, I think it is down there.
Ah, dammit.
We have to go back down there.
Oh, my God.
What was the street? South Hill Street.
Ty, it's right here.
- I'm doing it.
- Ty, alright.
Choose a rigger.
You? Let's go.
We were, like, why did the other teams not pick this guy? Because he was tall and handsome and his smile .
he was everything.
Yeah, I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty nervous.
Oh, man.
Only on The Race.
As long as I can still dance after this.
Don't try this one at home.
I'm going to try not to look down.
It's going to be really scary.
First try, babe.
First try.
Whoo! Damn, it's high.
I'm already really nervous to see her come out on that point.
And my mom is scared of heights.
SHERI: It was really hard to psych myself up to jump.
Like, every bit of your being is saying, "Don't do it, "don't do it, don't do it.
" You got it, Mom! I said a prayer for you.
Don't look down.
That is a long jump.
You've got this.
You can do it, baby! I love you.
Stay focused, baby.
You can do this.
It's so windy.
Go! Whoo! Yeah! (LAUGHS) He got it first try.
Whoo! Babe, you're like Mission Impossible.
Alright, "Take a helicopter ride "up the coastline to Santa Barbara.
" Dana and Matt now have the lead and will fly 90 miles north to the city of Santa Barbara.
Once there, they will find their next clue hidden somewhere in this maze of colourful boats on board the Theresa Ann, in the hands of this fisherman.
Matt's favourite place is Santa Barbara.
Oh, my gosh.
This leg keeps getting better and better.
Oh, my God.
I know he's nervous about his jumping ability and his depth perception.
It looks kind of far.
He's feeling good though 'cause he got a really cute jump instructor.
His future husband is going to help him jump off the building.
Oh, man.
- Whoo! - Alright.
This is cool.
Are you taking us to Santa Barbara? You've got it, Sheri.
Let's go, Sheri.
(SOBS) We'll see if Sheri gets it on her first jump.
(WHIMPERS) Oh, my God.
I'm so scared.
I don't know if I can look.
I don't know if I can look.
That's so far.
Oh, my God.
Oh, God.
Oh, my God, I'm so scared.
(CRIES) Oh, my God.
Oh, my God! I don't know if I can do this.
(CRIES) Oh, my God.
That's so far.
Oh, God.
Oh, my God.
I'm so scared.
(CRIES) Oh, my God.
Oh, my God! I don't know if I can do this.
You've got it, Mom! Don't worry, you're going to be fine.
(CRIES) I can't even look.
I'm just so nervous.
Oh! Mom, good try.
Good try.
(CRIES) Yeah, Sheri missed it on her first go.
She just didn't really jump that much.
It's, honestly, it's a lot of a head game.
(SOBS) It's just so scary.
I know.
Mom, you just leapt off a building.
You OK? Yeah.
I'll do it.
I'll do it.
Tyler can definitely get this on his first try.
Throughout the race we've been a two-try kind of team.
Today would be a good day for us to be a one-try kind of team.
Oh, my God.
You've got it, Ty! One, two, three.
Ah! Oh.
Holy crap.
I told you we're a two-try kind of team.
(LAUGHS) - Brandon, right? - That's right.
Have you met Brandon? Yeah, he told me he was going to catch you if you fell.
Oh, that is so Brandon of Brandon.
Good job, baby.
Take off, baby.
Whoo! Oh, my gosh.
This is so freaking cool.
This is crazy.
We have a little lead on Tyler and Korey and on Sheri and Cole but we've seen so many times in this race that a five-minute lead, a 10-minute lead, even sometimes a 30-minute lead can just disappear so we're going to keep pushing as if we're in last.
That's just so scary.
With each failed attempt, the clue was moved a little bit closer so that meant that I didn't have to jump as far.
I didn't realise how scared she was.
I just hope that it's closer this time so that she can get it so she doesn't have to keep doing it fear-wise, you know.
Deep breath, Mom.
You're OK.
She'll get it this time.
There's a lot of race left, I'm sure.
A lot of this leg left and we'll catch up.
(SCREAMS) Yeah! Yeah, Mom! Whoo! Whoo! I'll get the bags.
Good job, Momma.
It was so scary jumping off.
Tyler and Korey haven't even left yet though.
Oh, they haven't? No.
He'll get it this time.
He doesn't want disappoint Brandon.
His new boyfriend Brandon.
Come on.
(LAUGHS) The wind is blowing.
That is not what I want.
You have that wind.
What are you doing? Oh, the wind.
Stay still.
Ah! Fudge.
That's frustrating.
OK, so maybe we're a three-try kind of team.
Oh, wow.
(LAUGHS) This is so cool! We're close so we've got to give it our all.
Who knows how much more of the race there is.
Lots of time for mistakes to be made.
We just do our race to the best that we can and you never know what could happen, right? Totally doable.
I got it.
I've got this.
- Yes! - Yeah! - Got it! - You got it.
Yay! I'm sorry, Korey.
Don't apologise.
I think you were just missing the clue so you could hang out with Brandon.
- Bye, Brandon! - Bye, guys.
Alright, hop up in there.
Oh, my gosh.
I'm embarrassed that it took me that many tries.
Put it behind you.
That's half the fun.
That's what you say when you think we're going to lose.
Dude, you know how many times I said "Let's have fun" and we got first? - True.
- Five.
Then let's have fun.
Looks like we're coming up on the ocean.
I think we must be getting close.
Wow, this is so cool.
Let's go.
Whoo! Over this way.
Santa Barbara Harbor as fast as you can, please.
Do you think we could borrow your Google? Yes, you can.
Have you ever heard of the Theresa Ann? No idea.
It's a 1926 Monterey fishing boat, it sits in the water.
But how are we going to find that on a freaking dinghy? We have not seen any other teams yet, but we know that they're close behind us, we just know.
I can just feel that it's going to be a tight leg.
- That's one of the teams there.
- Yeah, for sure.
I still feel like we're getting first.
I've got a good feeling.
There's so much race left.
We'll catch up.
No doubt.
We're catching up.
What do you think Theresa Ann is? It sounds like a Real Housewife.
I think that is a Housewife name.
We saw the Maritime Museum, which was in a few photos that we saw of the Theresa Ann, so, we think the boat is docked somewhere near the museum.
There are hundreds - Thousands of boats.
- of boats out there.
There it is.
In front of you on the left.
Alright, marked dinghy.
Whoo-hoo! Alright.
We're looking for the Theresa Ann and we're going to try to pull out and not run into the dock.
- We're still attached.
- Yeah, we're attached.
Do you want to undo that or should I? - Yeah.
- We don't boat.
Alright, let's go.
Theresa Ann, here we go.
That way.
I feel like you're supposed to go that way.
Listen to me, look.
This way? Turn right and then take it all the way down.
- Over there? - Ah.
Let's go! Let's go, Mom! - To the harbour.
- Come on, Theresa Ann.
- Where you at, girl? - There's the Maritime Museum.
- There! Whoo! - Theresa Ann.
Let's go.
What do we do? What do we do? Stop.
- I need you to move a little bit.
- What do you want me to do? - Hello.
- Alright.
How are you? - Do you have the clue? Whoo! - Thank you so much, thank you.
Whoo-hoo-hoo! "Make your way up to Gibraltar Rock and search for your next clue.
" Whoo! That's how you find a boat! Let's get out of here.
Do you have a phone that we could use, sir? - A cell phone? - Oh, wonderful.
Theresa Ann, Santa Barbara.
- It's a museum.
- Are you sure? Yeah, looks like it's a Maritime Museum.
But we've got to take a dinghy, - I guess, to the Theresa Ann museum.
- Right.
Find a taxi.
I heard ya.
- I see one.
- You do? Way down there, he's turning, though.
Go, go, get him.
Ah, he turned.
We should've had our guy wait.
We need a taxi.
It's not going to be easy to find one here.
Come this way towards the front of the harbour.
Hello, is there any way we could get a taxi? Oh, we don't have a taxi area around here.
Let's go.
- Come on.
-This was a mistake.
SEA Landing.
That's it.
The marked dinghies.
Those look like dinghies over there.
- Yeah, this is it, this is it.
- OK.
- Hello! Dinghy, dinghy.
- There we go.
Now we've got to look for the Theresa Ann, which we know is a museum.
Yeah, that's the harbour.
So, it's going to be one of them boats in that harbour.
That looks like one of the team's already out there.
What are you thinking, left or right? It doesn't look like there's anything on the ground.
Could it be that right there? Do you want to go look? Hey! Do y'all know where the Theresa Ann museum is? No, OK.
Let's go to the row we were on, I guess.
- Over there? - I don't know, I can't see.
I can't hear what you're saying.
You're saying things, I can't hear you.
OK, I'm sorry.
Go where you think it is.
Hi, do you guys know where we might be able to get a taxi? Oh You're gonna to have to call one.
Call one.
You want a number? I have it here.
That would be great, could you call us a taxi? We let our taxi go, we shouldn't have done that, we've got a nice man that's calling us a taxi and we're hoping we'll get out of here as fast as possible.
Alright, 10 minutes.
10 minutes, that's a 20-minute mistake right there, kids.
Those green and white vans.
Do you know Sea Landing at the Santa Barbara Harbor? - Yes.
- OK.
Let's pass one team on the dinghies and then we'll catch the next team at the next thing.
I just don't know if I can stand here for 10 minutes.
Well, this is the most likely intersection.
What if it doesn't come? Every minute is precious on the final leg, so it's frustrating to make any kind of mistake.
- Why did we let the taxi go? - I don't know.
Oh, my God, this is killing me.
This is our lead.
I think this is the taxi.
Hi, can you please take us to Gibraltar Rock? Thank you so much.
- Where you going? - BOTH: Gibraltar Rock.
I've been looking, I didn't see an opening.
I don't think it's a museum.
OK, think it's a boat? It's got to be, Mom.
OK, let's start looking for boats.
I would love to see some teams.
- There's SEA Landing.
- Right there.
- Will you wait for us? - Thank you.
OK, marked dinghy.
Marked dinghy.
- No.
Theresa Ann? - I don't see one.
- Summer Spirit.
- Catherine.
- Fuego.
- Lady J.
None of these say Theresa Ann on them.
None of them say Theresa Ann.
Theresa Ann.
- Oh, careful.
- Oh, my God.
- Oh, my God.
- Yeah.
- It's fine.
- OK.
- You want to go straight? - Yeah.
- Cole! Right there, right there! - Theresa Ann.
- Damn, and we passed it twice.
- I know.
Hi, we need a clue.
- Thank you very much.
- Thank you, thank you.
OK, go back to where we were.
Do you see the other teams? I'm going to keep an eye out.
There's a team.
Sheri and Cole.
Ahh, there's Tyler and Korey.
Mom, make it obvious that you have the clue, make it obvious that you have the clue.
What do you mean? 'Cause then they'll think it's down here.
We want them to think it's down here.
I know, so make it obvious you have the clue, 'cause then they'll think we got it from down here and it's not from down here.
They're turning the other way, so let's get out of here.
Well, we know they didn't get the clue.
Well, part of me thinks they tried to turn down that way, - thinking that was how you exit.
- Oh.
Should we just get a taxi, is that what it all said? Yeah, we'll have to.
Here's a taxi.
Can we take you? Gibraltar Rock? Try and go that way.
You know where it's at? - No.
- Oh, you don't know? - OK, she doesn't know where it's at.
- OK.
- Are you going to run down this way? - Well, there's a road where.
Do you think Matt and Dana have found it already? We don't We've just got to look.
Theresa Ann.
We were so quick.
- Oh, my God, I'm so bad at this.
- It's OK, it's OK, it's OK.
Slow and steady.
- Watch out, watch out, watch out.
- Just push off, push off.
- Sorry.
- Sorry.
Do you have a clue for us? - Thank you, so much.
- Thank you, so much.
- (CIRCUS MUSIC PLAYS) - Ty, put it in your jacket.
I can put it in my jacket if you want me to.
- Stop pushing.
- I'm trying to make it - Thank you, thank you, thank you.
- Now go.
What do you want to do? Go back to her and have her get us a taxi that We could be running around forever.
Tyler and Korey just got in that one.
Oh, my God, we're so screwed.
Yeah, but she don't know where Gibraltar Rock is.
Can we look on your phone? Thank you.
So, we're searching for Gibraltar Rock to see how to get there.
That's got to be it, dude.
Here you go.
Thank you.
That's Gibraltar Rock.
Wait, Mom, Mom, taxi! Taxi! Taxi! Taxi! Taxi, taxi! Do you know how to get to Gibraltar Rock? I can Google it.
OK, thank you.
I would assume that we're ahead of Tyler and Korey if their lady had no idea where it was.
- Will she be able to follow this? - Hopefully.
She's going to have to.
Here are our directions.
Just step by step.
There's not much more I can do for her.
Hopefully, we're still in first, but we know that they can really be closing the gap.
- Oh, yeah.
- It's a tight race at this point.
What is this? What is this? What is this? Clue Box.
Route info.
"Are you ready for some synchronised mountaineering?" This is Gibraltar Rock, rising a 1,000ft above Rattlesnake Canyon.
While one team member attempts a 300ft Tyrolean traverse to retrieve half their clue, they will simultaneously lower their partner down Gibraltar's vertical rock face for the other half.
Once both team members return to their starting point, they can reunite and then piece together the next clue.
- Alright, let's do it.
- See you there.
If I can't move, you can't move.
Good lesson.
This is crazy, we're really, really high up coming out over this cliff.
Honestly, I have very few fears and not much fear of heights or anything, but rockclimbing, like rocks, freak me out a little bit.
I'm going out, there's a half a clue hanging out there and Dana is rappelling down the mountain to her half of the clue and then we have to work together to get back to our sides.
I feel like a less cool version of Lara Croft.
Like a scared version of Lara Croft.
It seems like we're the first ones here.
I don't see anybody else right now, but I'm sure they're right behind us.
Whoo! Come on, babe! Slow and steady.
Oh, my God, that's far down.
Maybe I shouldn't have looked.
MATT: Going out, I was basically controlling how fast she went down the mountain, so I just took it out slowly to make sure she could get down.
DANA: You took it out slowly?! - Yeah, you know.
- I flew down the side of that thing.
Well, I mean, we're in a race.
- Good job, babe! - Stop! Stop! Stop! STOP! Babe, listen! Hold on, I have to get mine first.
I need you to start to go back.
- Can you hear me? - Yeah.
I have to still get my clue! We're really in a hurry.
Mas rapido.
What are you doing? - Think positively.
- She's got it, she's got it.
You know? We're in a hurry, we have to go.
- Can you follow on the mapas? - Yeah.
See here, these are all of the directions.
This is step-by-step directions.
So, go across, we need to get back the other way.
- Did you get it? - Start to go back and then stop! Alright, I'm going to help you, ready? Be really careful.
Get it.
Oh Careful.
Go! Let's go.
Use your legs! MATT: Going back, I was basically pulling myself in and simultaneously pulling her up the mountain.
DANA: It's hard to climb up like that when you're hanging.
- (PANTS) - Whoa-whoa-whoa.
It's so hard to pull up.
Come on.
Almost there, baby, let's go.
- (HEAVES) - (HEAVES) Oh, crap, holy crap, this is hard.
- Come on, babe! - I've got it.
- Almost there! - Just give me a sec, OK? OK.
Go! Come on, almost there.
So close, come on.
Come on.
Oh, man, this sucks.
So close.
Don't stop, don't stop.
Wow, that was so hard.
That's so difficult.
Oh, my God.
It's definitely going to be something with heights.
I'm so done with it.
I'm so done with heights.
That's Cole and Sheri.
You got it, Mom.
Come on.
It's a wine bottle.
Grassini Family Vineyards.
PHIL: Teams must now make their way to Grassini Family Vineyards where they'll find their next clue.
We did good.
Cole is not going to like that one.
I'm so scared of heights, this is going to be awesome.
Very nervous, but I want to just do it.
I can't believe I'm doing this.
This looks pretty terrifying.
I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty terrified.
This is crazy, I just jumped off a building.
If you're afraid of heights, people, don't make it to the finale of The Amazing Race.
(LAUGHS) MAN: Three, two, one.
I went off course, I'm good.
Come on, Cole! Ahh! Cole, you're doing a good job, baby.
COLE: I did not enjoy a single second of being out in that gorge.
That was one of the most terrifying things in my life.
Stop! I need you to stop! Are you OK? Stop! OK.
I'm ready to go up.
Mom, you've got to go down.
No, I've got to go up.
Do you have your clue? Not yet.
Go down.
We're very close.
All the teams are pretty close.
Everyone's really tight.
We just keep racing like we have no lead.
- There they are.
- That's them.
Here comes Tyler and Korey now.
They're on their way up.
TYLER: We didn't even think about it.
We knew we were in third at that moment and we had to go.
There was no discussion.
It was just, "Run.
" We know the red team is terrified to do this.
(LAUGHS) Come on, Cole! I need you to pull me up! (GROANS) Cole, I need you to help me, please! I'm coming! Pull! (GROANS) I need you to pull.
I am! You're almost there, Mom.
Sheri! - You're killing it.
- Thank you.
- How did you do? - Honey, we did it.
You did it.
Have you seen the dancers? Yes, they finished right before we did.
They already finished.
Ready, Ty? Pull! Pull! Slower! OK, you're good.
Keep going.
Holy crap.
Good job, Kor! Make up some time! Oh! I could use some line.
- Not too far behind.
- No, I know.
Oh, my God.
So Korey is (LAUGHS) Slow, slow, slow! Hold! Stop! You got your clue? Yeah! OK.
I'm going.
How does it feel? Good! Keep going, Ty! Good job! (GROANS) Almost there! (BREATHES HEAVILY) Oh, my God.
I feel like we just made up time.
I feel like we just did that in five minutes.
Got the clue? Yeah.
Are you ready? Let's go.
You see it? This is it.
This is it.
- Do you see anything? - I don't know.
Keep going.
Yeah, to the left, to the left.
Yeah, you can go all the way down.
Yeah, that's right.
Keep going.
- Perfect.
- Perfect.
- Keep going all the way round.
- Yeah, keep going round.
- Alright.
- Alright, let us out.
Where's the Clue Box? Focus your eyes.
Don't walk past it.
- Let's go around this way.
- Where are you going? Maybe over here.
I don't see anything.
It's not here.
Are you kidding me? We're missing a Clue Box or something.
Yeah, no crap.
- Oh, man.
This is so frustrating.
- Oh, my God, babe.
Oh, my God, babe.
We're missing a Clue Box or something.
Yeah, no crap.
I don't see it anywhere.
I think the Clue Box was back somewhere else.
- What do you think? - Maybe over here.
Oh, there.
Go, go! Rip it! California produces 90% of America's wines.
Almost 12 million barrels like this every year.
Starting with a hashtag, they must use these barrel lids stamped with letters .
to spell nine cities they've visited on the race and all hashtagged in their clues.
You've got it, babe! I swear I was born for this.
I know this.
When we got the first clue in leg 1 that had a hashtag in it.
I said to Matt right away, "This is the final challenge.
" I just knew the hashtags were involved.
Oh, here are the hashtags.
Museo Soumaya.
That's Mexico City.
That's one.
DANA: So the first hashtag was Museo Soumaya and that was from our leg 1 in Mexico City.
That was actually our Pit Stop where we won the first leg.
Dang, being short! The tall ones are hard for me.
Get it, babe, get it! It's really going to come down to who can do this Roadblock the fastest and get out of here.
We could be pretty close to the Pit Stop at this point.
And I have a lot of faith in Dana.
She's really good at stuff like this.
Walled City, that's Cartagena, leg 2.
(SIGHS) I really hope that we can make some ground.
I mean, we're all pretty close.
I feel like we may have closed a little bit of a gap.
- It's anyone's game.
- It's anyone's game.
We definitely made up on time, I think.
We for sure did it faster than Sheri and Cole.
Come on.
Next up was Switzerland.
Come on.
Let's go to Geneva.
Good job, Babe! I'm nervous to have the last Roadblock fall on me and to have the whole race, basically, on my shoulders.
If I slip up or if I mess that up, I could lose it for us, even if we're winning.
After Geneva, we went to Chamonix.
I felt that pressure.
I was nervous about that.
After Chamonix, we went to Yerevan, that's the 12th Capital of Armenia.
We're ready to do whatever's next.
We're ready.
I just climbed across a gorge.
I want to pass this person.
Can you go past her? Go.
We're in a hurry, so will you get out of the way? Smile and wave, Kor.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
Oh, my gosh.
That's all you have to do is yell politely.
(CHUCKLES) I've got three hashtags left.
Three slots left.
I'm doing this right.
Spelling the cities could be tricky.
Some of the cities like Yerevan and Cartagena were a little bit difficult to spell.
After Dubai we went to Bali.
We went to Bali.
Let's go, baby.
I just want to get this done so bad.
Come on, Dana! Go, go, go! H.
DANA: The final one was Parametric Design, which was our leg in Shenzhen.
Can I get a check? (BREATHES HEAVILY) Thank you so much.
Matt! Baby, I've got it! Whoo! Come on! MATT: When I saw her coming around the corner with the clue, I was just praying that it said, "Finish line - go see Phil.
" Anything that meant that we were close to the end of the race.
"Cross the finish line.
Run to the lake.
" Along the way, these eight teams were eliminated, and now the final three are racing here to the finish line.
In the end, only one team will win $1 million and .
The Amazing Race.
Do you see the lake? Did you see it on the way in? No.
I feel like we would have seen Phil or something, though.
We're about to go and kick some butt doing whatever we're about to do.
This may be it.
Go to your left.
This is good.
This is it.
"Who wants to roll up the barrels?" OK.
I'm rolling up the barrels.
Bye, Mom! I'm going to win us $1 million.
I feel like we would have seen it if it was obvious on the way in.
But it could be, like, off to the right.
I've got to spell out the cities in the order that we arrive to them.
I know them all.
Oh! Hashtags.
"Who wants to roll out the barrels?" Me.
This is a big deal.
We've got to figure this out fast.
- Use your gut.
- I don't Use everything that brought us to this point, don't say you don't know.
So first city was Mexico City.
So this is all the hashtags? These are all the hashtags.
Did you study them? - Yeah, we know them by heart.
- OK.
That's good.
So two was Cartagena.
Oh, my gosh! This has got to be it.
- There! Lake! It's on that sign.
- That way? It looks like here.
Right here, right here.
Come, on.
(CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) - I see them! Come on.
- No, you don't.
(PLAY THE AMAZING RACE THEME MUSIC) (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) Oh, my God! Come on, baby! Whoo! Come on! (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) 18 cities, 10 countries and more than 27,000 miles, Dana and Matt, you are the winners of The Amazing Race - and you have won $1 million.
- Whoo! (SOBS) DANA: It's surreal.
I'm stunned.
To see all the other teams that we competed so hard against, having them applaud for us and to hear Phil say that we've won the race is something that we'll never forget.
There was a point through the race, where I thought that you guys might just implode.
Because, I don't know, from the outside it was, like, "Wow, this is either, like, some really fiery relationship "or they're about to selfdestruct.
" - Yeah, it's fiery.
I mean - (LAUGHS) - Is it fiery, everybody? - OTHERS: Yeah! We've been like that since day one.
I mean, we have ups and downs, but we always said that we would rather be passionate than boring.
Well, you're passionate and you're not boring.
At the end of the day, we have nothing but love and respect for each other.
I think he is the most amazing person, competitor.
I just feel blessed to have him in my life at all.
And he knows that deep down.
So if we yell a little bit in the process, as long as it gets us to the finish line.
Well, it did get you here.
Oh, yeah! DANA: Through the race we had ups and downs for sure.
And we just, we really hung together, we always came back to each other and we worked hard to keep our relationship strong.
MATT: I think that some of our weaknesses were really tested on this race.
And we fought through a lot on the race.
I think it's definitely brought us closer.
I think it's brought us 1,000 times closer.
(CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) The last one is .
Is it correct? Yes? Oh, OK.
- Mom! - Oh.
- Good job, guys.
- Good job, baby.
Good job, Cole.
You've got this, Kor.
What's the city in France? Chamonix.
- Man! - You did it, baby.
(CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) Sheri and Cole, it's huge what you guys have done.
Really incredible effort today.
You've finished.
You've run all 12 legs of The Amazing Race.
- Thank you.
- Second's not bad.
It's not the best, but it's not bad.
I tell you what, I think your family right now, Sheri, is so proud of you guys.
We've really grown.
It's just an amazing journey to see the world.
And getting to do this with my son, for a mom, it's just really touching.
I think they'll be proud of us 'cause we did the whole race and I think we did it with a good spirit and had a great time doing it.
Started off rough.
You know, we were just happy to be a part of it all.
And now here we are, you know, it's been a real buzz being able to make it this far.
And this is our best finish, so Hey, we finally got a second.
(CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) - You guys should be so proud.
- BOTH: We are.
You guys have not stopped smiling this entire race.
You had a good time? - Absolutely.
Best time of my life.
- Time of my life.
And you're still friends! I mean, I don't know how.
TYLER: I am so glad that Korey and I did the race together.
There's no-one else I would want to run it with.
Korey knows how to bring out the best in me and we had so much fun.
I feel like I won, 'cause I had the trip of a lifetime with my best friend.
Korey, what about your partner? Why did you enjoy running this race with him? Tyler and I met in college and even though he's four years younger than me, I look up to him so much .
which is a different dynamic for our relationship.
I mean, he's one of the most confident people I know.
Spending every day with him, working together, he makes me more confident in myself and makes me comfortable in my own skin.
And he's just, I look up to him so much.
I have been given so many opportunities that I never would have thought to even try my own and I got to do it with my best friend.
It's like my expectations were exceeded a million-fold.
It was the opportunity of a lifetime.
Thank you! The Amazing Race is nonetheless amazing.
We travelled the world and I'm very proud of my mom, she did a great job.
We came here and accomplished so much.
To win is just I can't even really put it into words.
It was just such an incredible experience.
Love you.
Love you too.
