Caroline and Jennifer got, uh, bogged down on The Amazing Race finale when Jen needed three attempts to swim across a freezing, muddy bog in Belfast, Northern Ireland. "That was such a stressful day for us," she tells TVGuide.com. "If I had gotten it right the first time, I would've been OK. But getting in the second time, I just felt claustrophobic." Worse, the country singers got lost afterward and in the end, it wasn't a close finish for the final finale spot at all. Find out how much time they lost, what song they've written for Bates and Anthony and if a flying squirrel really died in Caroline's bra.
Newlyweds Max and Katie had won the past three legs on The Amazing Race 22 and looked like they might make it a fourth straight victory on the final leg. But then came the spy Switchback Roadblock. Despite getting there first, Max had trouble locating his spy and completed the task third, but the two were able to recover for a second-place finish. "It was hard to watch. We loved watching the first half [of the two-hour finale]," he tells TVGuide.com. "I wish we had a week to enjoy that victory instead of just slamming the door on it. But it was fun. We'd been dreading watching D.C. since we did it." Find out how much time they lost at the challenge, if they think of themselves as villains and more.
[SPOILER ALERT: The following story reveals the winners of The Amazing Race 22. Read at your own risk.]
After doubling up on prize money last season (for one team at least), The Amazing Race is doubling up on something else for Season 22 (premieres Sunday, 8/7c, CBS): the Express Pass. In a new twist, the winners of the first leg will not only get an Express Pass for themselves, but a second Express Pass to give to another team by the fourth leg. "We really don't like to deviate too much from what works," host Phil Keoghan tells TVGuide.com. "This time, you can give one Express Pass away. All of the sudden, the first place team has that power and you create a situation where the other teams want to suck up to that team. 'Can you be my BFF and by the way, can I have that Express Pass?' It's little tweaks like that that I think keep it interesting for the audience and the Racers."Winter TV: Get the scoop on must-see new showsSo what else can you expect this season?
