I hate to get all My Name Is Earl on you guys, but if ever I've seen a glowing endorsement for karma, this week's Amazing Race episode is it. I was a little dismayed that only two teams Tom and Terry and the Cho brothers took a moment to stop and appreciate the magnitude of former prisoner of war and current U.S. Senator John McCain's flight suit on display at the Hanoi Hilton. I understand it's a race, but sometimes you've simply got to stop and show some respect. As it turns out, both teams were rewarded for their displays of human decency: Erwin and Godwin finished the leg in first place, while Tom and Terry narrowly escaped Philimination after incurring a 30-minute breaking-the-rules time penalty. (No motorcycles, boys!) Which is not to say our departing team deserved what they got I'm disappointed to see Duke and Lauren go home this early in the race. As parent/child relationships go, I thought Duke was making an admirable effort to understand his daughter ...
Dating actors Hayden Kristianson and Aaron Crumbaugh made Amazing Race history on the season finale, when Aaron popped the question right after being Philiminated. It was a great "awww" moment, but considering their often combative relationship on the show, more than a few viewers probably thought "Huh?" Here, the duo set the record straight about their relationship and reveal some behind-the-scenes secrets, including what really happened on the top of Mount Hua.
TV Guide Online: The race had really taken its toll on you by the Xi'an leg. You both looked exhausted.Aaron Crumbaugh: The thing is, when we got off the train in Xi'an, we were feeling pretty good because we had gotten some sleep during the 17-hour ride. Then we ran to the Drum Tower and it wasn't open yet — story of our lives on this race. And from there, we just had a terrible day. The taxi driver just ki
As super-fit personal trainers, you'd think Adam Malis and Rebecca Cardon would've been the team to beat on The Amazing Race. But the duo's frequent arguments seemed to hold them back throughout the contest and, despite a last-minute surge, they wound up capturing the bronze. Here, the quirky twosome tells TV Guide Online about their teamwork (or lack thereof) and why they didn't speak to each other for two months after the race. Also, Adam finally reveals what's up with those Hellboy hair horns and his sexually ambiguous appearance.
TV Guide Online: You were stuck in last place for much of the final leg. Did you ever think you'd catch up?Adam Malis: When we were in Japan, we tried to get on the flight Freddy and Kendra were on. We had tickets for a later flight, but we were trying to switch to the earlier plane. The woman at the counter would not let us on!
With a whopping 92 percent popularity rating on CBS.com, Jon Buehler and Kris Perkins easily qualify as this season's most beloved Amazing Racers. Honestly, how could you dislike these sweet long-distance daters? In a season filled with screaming matches and shoving incidents, the hot couple charmed viewers with their positive attitudes and genuine affection for each other. Believe it or not, they are just as nice in real life. Here, Jon and Kris discuss their relationship and why they're really OK with finishing second.
TV Guide Online: It's safe to say that, like last time, this race was determined by a single plane ride.Jon Buehler: Yeah, that was definitely the deciding factor. We did ask the American Airlines guy several times, "Are you sure this is the first plane to land in Chicago?" And he kept saying that he was absolutely positive. So we just took his word for it, got the tickets and ran over to the Internet cafe to find i
Once again, The Amazing Race all came down to a single plane ride. Although the people's favorite, Jon Buehler and Kris Perkins, were assured that they were on the earliest possible flight to Chicago, dark horses Freddy Holliday and Kendra Bentley found a flight that landed in the Windy City half an hour earlier. While Jon and Kris made up time in the air, Freddy and Kendra were the first team on the ground, leading the pack all the way to the finish line. Here the soon-to-be married models (whose wedding is set for spring) tell TV Guide Online about their surprise victory and their relationship on the show. Also, Kendra faces up to certain charming comments she made while in Africa... you know what we mean.
TV Guide Online: Did you realize you had the race sewn up when you boarded the United flight and didn't see Kris and Jon anywhere?Freddy Holliday: It was not sewn up, becau
