Our top moments of the week: 14. Best (Worst) Performance: After Jess rebuffs Sam's attempt to win her back on New Girl, she changes her mind and decides to take him back. But to tell him so, she must sneak into the children's hospital where he works. When she and the gang run into a security guard, they follow Jess' lead and pretend to be carol singers. Although Jess is the only one of the bunch who can carry a tune and no one seems to know the words to "Come All Ye Faithful," she still belts an impressive "I don't know the words" to the tune of the classic Christmas carol. Sam magically appears, even more smitten with her than he was before. Dear Sam, we have a great idea for what to get Jess for Christmas: a....
Don't tell Jaymes and James they lost The Amazing Race yet. "Somebody did actually tweet that we won, so I retweeted it! I was like, "'Yeah!'" Jaymes tells TVGuide.com. "Spreading false information! [We'll] hashtag 'sorry, Josh and Brent'! We're proud of what we got. We got a silver medal in The Amazing Race. That's freakin' awesome. What an accomplishment for two guys who couldn't even find the abacus lady in the first leg to make it to the final leg in the Race." Despite falling behind early on the final leg, the fan-favorite Chippendales made up time at the final Roadblock, but it wasn't enough to overtake the Beekmans. Find out how close they were.
Need proof that the only leg that matters is the final leg on The Amazing Race? The Fabulous Beekman Boys' Josh and Brent — who had finished second to last six times during season and never in the top two before the finale — defied the odds and a three-team alliance to win the $1 million. They are the third team to win the Race without winning a previous leg. "We were the underdogs, but we didn't give up no matter how bad things got," Josh tells TVGuide.com. "I think we earned the win." Nevertheless, given their low placements throughout the Race and the fact that they seemed ready to throw in the towel to save Abbie and Ryan in Amsterdam, some fans believe they're unworthy winners. Find out why they don't mind that label, what they're doing with the money and more.

Sunday's Amazing Race finale won't have any drama like last season, but Phil Keoghan promises a legitimate tight finish. "It's what we always want, but can never guarantee," he tells TVGuide.com. The two-hour closer will find the final four teams — Chippendales Jaymes and James, twins Natalie and Nadiya, couple Trey and Lexi, and The Fabulous Beekman Boys' Josh and Brent — racing through France, where one team will be eliminated. The final three will then head to New York City, where they'll take on a memory task that numerous fans predicted would be the final challenge.Get the scoop on what else to expect Sunday — and next season — from Keoghan below.
Abbie and Ryan probably won't be traveling through Frankfurt any time soon — or its airport at least. Two weeks after missing a connecting flight there on The Amazing Race, double bad luck struck again when a ticket agent refused to allow the two to board their connecting flight and their backup connection had mechanical trouble. To top it off, the Chippendales, Jaymes and James, U-Turned them as part of a pact with Natalie and Nadiya, and Trey and Lexi. "We were dead men walking," Ryan tells TVGuide.com. "There was no way we were going to be safe unless it was a non-elimination." See what else the couple, who were the first team ever racing for $2 million, has to say about their "rough" couple of legs, working with Josh and Brent, and if they're really mad at the Chippendales.
The Amazing Race picked up its ninth trophy (in 10 nominations) for reality-competition series at last Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards, but the evening was special for Phil Keoghan for another reason. "My daughter was 6 the first time we won and I told her that I would take her to the Emmys when she's 16 if we're lucky enough to be nominated then, let alone still be on the air," Keoghan tells TVGuide.com. "So a decade has gone by — I don't know how it's gone that quickly — we're still here and we got nominated, so I took her and it was great to be there with her." It wasn't smooth sailing the whole night: His daughter Elle fainted before the show from the oppressive heat (she's OK) and Keoghan had trouble getting into the theater after seeking help for her. "The entrance was blocked, so we had to go all the way around and luckily made it back in time before the category was announced," he says. "It was our own Roadblock!"Fall Preview: Get scoop on your favorite returning showsNine Emmys later, Race is heading into its 21st season (Sunday, 8/7c, CBS) and raising the stakes even higher. For the first time, the show is doubling the prize money to $2 million — but there's a catch: A team must win the first and last legs to win the $2 million purse. So why up the grand prize now? What else can we expect from Season 21? Keoghan gives us the scoop.
The new season of CBS' The Amazing Race is about to get a lot more fabulous. Goat farmers Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge, also known as Planet Green's Fabulous Beekman Boys, are one of 11 new teams racing around the world when the 21st season of the reality competition series begins Sunday, Sept. 30 at 8/7c. Joining the reality stars are heavy metal rocker and former member of White Lion and Megadeth James LoMenzo, double-amputee professional snowboarder Amy Purdy and Las Vegas Chippendales dancers Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis.
City mice—turned—country cutup couple Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Dr. Brent Ridge return for Season 2 of The Fabulous Beekman Boys (Tuesday, 10/9c, Planet Green), the laugh-out-loud look at their lives on an organic farm in upstate New York. Fabulous, indeed!
Ok, if you don't know who the Fabulous Beekman Boys are, a) that's a damn shame and b) fix that. Imagine the spawn of Charles Nelson Reilly and Tim Gunn as raised by Martha Stewart, and you have Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge, partners in life and an upstate New York organic farm who left the big city for the Green Acres life. In the first season of their eponymous reality show (round two begins in the new year), these two not only won us over with their copious amounts of charm, cheek and fish-out-of-water wackiness, they also made uppity llamas and homemade goat cheese must-see TV.And last night, the sassy ones popped back up to make festive fabulous with a holiday special that was equal parts outtake clipfest and viewer-mail quipfest, with a few how-to hoots — their "obligatory holiday craft segments" — featuring fruitcake tutorials and wreath-making tips thrown in for good measure...
