Amazing Race's Brooke and Robbie: "This Season Would've Been Super Boring Without Us"

Brooke, Robbie

Brooke and Robbie's dominance on The Amazing Race was brief and their downfall, steep. After winning the penultimate leg, only to learn that they had to continue straight into the first four-team finale, the wrestlers were eliminated in fourth place midway through the final leg. Adding insult to injury: They were cut right before doing a Roadblock, and their frenemies Amy and Maya won. "It was pretty hard to watch. We didn't expect it to play out that way," Brooke tells TVGuide.com. "We made it way farther than we could've ever imagined. We're very proud of ourselves. I think we played the game the way we wanted to." Yes, that means reneging on U-Turn deals. See why they did that and if they really had it out for Amy and Maya.

Amazing Race's Adam and Bethany: "We Knew Things Weren't Going Our Way"

Adam, Bethany

If there was one mistake Adam and Bethany made on The Amazing Race finale, it might have been not strategizing about the Roadblocks. "When we got to the last challenge, it said whoever didn't do the first [Roadblock] had to do the second one and I read what it was, my heart dropped," Bethany tells TVGuide.com. "Adam is so much better at the memory stuff than I am." The surfers ended up in third place, but completing the race they did was a victory in and of itself — and not just because Bethany has one arm. Find out why below.

Amazing Race's Misti and Jim: We Succumbed to Pressure

Jim, Misti

Misti and Jim fell short of not only winning The Amazing Race, but their goal of setting the mark for most leg victories in a single season. Though they won a season-leading five legs, the dentists also made some pretty big blunders along the way, which they attribute to pressure. "It was a relief to have it over with because we felt a lot of pressure," Misti tells TVGuide.com. "There was such an expectation, at least with our close friends and families, for us to win. The prior episodes were a lot more fun, obviously, because we were winning most of those!" Check out what else they have to say about the final leg, the two biggest things that surprised them and more.

Amazing Race's Amy and Maya: We're a "Great Underdog Story"

Phil Keoghan, Amy, Maya

Friday's Amazing Race finale was pretty sweet. Food scientists and PhD students Amy and Maya, who specialize in candy and ice cream, came from behind, thanks to the four-team finale twist, to become the third all-female team to win the $1 million — and the fourth team to do so without having won a leg prior to the finale. "It's pretty surreal," Amy tells TVGuide.com. "You never know what's going to happen. I think just because we're not physically intimidating and because of what we do, other teams definitely underestimated us." See what else they have to say about their victory, what they'll do with the money and if they really have a beef with Brooke and Robbie.

8 amazing secrets from The Amazing Race start line

"We're not a show that's ever had to go to a place of jump the shark and do something that's so off base from what people expect that it affects the show," Keoghan tells TVGuide.com. "This particular twist seemed to work well without affecting the format and I think it makes the last leg more ...

Amazing Race's Michael and Scott: We Let Ourselves Down

Michael, Scott

A nasty ankle sprain didn't stop Michael and Scott on The Amazing Race, but bad directions did. The Boston firefighters were on the verge of safety when locals directed them the opposite way to the pit stop at Scotland's St. Ninian's Isle.

The Amazing Race's Dennis and Isabelle: We Didn't Over-Prepare

Dennis and Isabelle

Dennis and Isabelle went as far as to design their own Amazing Race course in preparation for the show. But there was one thing they didn't train for: punting a boat. "I had never heard of punting until this!" Isabelle tells TVGuide.com. The couple was moving along Leg 2 swimmingly until they got swept up in a current and lodged in a corner in the river.

8 Amazing Secrets From The Amazing Race Start Line

Phil Keoghan

The Amazing Race is going back to the start.

To celebrate the 10-time Emmy-winning show's 25th season (premieres Friday, 8/7c, CBS), Race returned to New York City, where Season 1 began and ended, for the kickoff — and the start line in Times Square was open to the public for the first time ever.

Meet The Amazing Race 25 teams

"I've always been an advocate of not keeping where we go a secret," host Phil Keoghan told TVGuide.com before production began. "What we do — keep that a secret — but as far as locations, when we're talking about where we're going, the better it is for the show. I think the viewer is more excited knowing where we're going, and they can't wait to see what happens in that place than they would be if they didn't know. It's kind of a great teaser. If we're going to Spain, you start thinking of all the things we could do in Spain. So I'm very excited to see our fans in Times Square. It's the perfect place to do it."

That's where I found myself at 3 a.m. Saturday, May 31, waiting for Phil to tell me that the world is waiting for me — or you know, the 11 teams. I've watched ...
