Amazing Race's Brendon and Rachel: Vanessa Is Mean Just to Be Mean

For a bit, The Amazing Race finale seemed like a two-team race between eventual winners Rachel and Dave , and Brendon and Rachel . But then the Big Brother duo took a cab instead of going on foot to a helicopter. "That was awful," Rachel tells TVGuide.com. "It was the $1 million mistake that you don't want to make. If it was any other leg, it wouldn't have been that bad because those are about survival; the goal is to win on the final leg." The pair finished in third, but not before having another one of their notorious meltdown fights. Where there more meltdowns that we didn't see? Find out below.

Amazing Race's Rachel and Dave: It Was a Relief to Win After Our Mistake

Dave and Rachel Brown made history on The Amazing Race 20 , claiming the $1 million for a franchise record eighth victory on Sunday's finale — but not before making some other dubious history. The married Army couple accidentally skipped a second Roadblock and arrived at the finish line, where they became the first team ever to be turned back by Phil Keoghan for not completing the final course. They managed to recover and officially win the Race . "Can we say we won it twice? I said on the show last night, we had eight and a half wins since we went there once," Dave tells TVGuide.com. "It was such a great feeling when we got back the second time knowing we did it correctly and realizing that we were still first." See what else they have to say about their win, what they're gonna do with the money, and their U-Turn drama with Art and JJ .  http://www.tvguide.com/News/Amazing-Race-Winners-Rachel-Dave-1047025.aspx?rss=breakingnews

'The Amazing Race': First Place Means Nothing If You Don't Complete The Tasks

It would be impossible to fathom the emotional roller coaster that Rachel and Dave went on toward the end of " The Amazing Race " (Sun., 8 p.m. ET on CBS). They were looking to set a new record for legs won by taking their eight leg, and the million dollars. And they hit the finish line to the cheering of the eliminated contestants. However... What a terrible time to find out that they'd missed a Roadblock! Even more shocking was when they went back to do it, Rachel quickly flew past Art on a Hawaiian sled and then just as quickly finished up the task. No one had ever been sent back from the Finish Line, but to get sent back and then come back and win it all anyway is nothing short of astonishing. Art and JJ finally got it together after Brendan and Rachel arrived. They scored a second place finish, with "Big Brother" coming in third. Ralph & Vanessa were eliminated during the penultimate leg when an ankle injury slowed Vanessa down too much during a fun and wacky Japanese game show task.

Amazing Race's Phil Keoghan Previews Finale Shocker: I Couldn't Believe It Happened

The Amazing Race kicked off Season 20 with what Phil Keoghan called the " most bizarre Pit Stop ." On Sunday (8/7c, CBS), the season will close with the series' "biggest shocker ever." For the first time, the team who arrives first at the finish line will be turned around for not completing a task correctly. "We were shocked as the viewers are gonna be," Keoghan tells TVGuide.com. "We were like, 'What just happened?' ... I couldn't believe it happened. Never have we had to tell the team that comes in first that they didn't win the $1 million. But it's good to know we can still have firsts 20 seasons in!" Of course, that team still has a chance to win if they can rectify their mistake at the Roadblock before the next team arrives.

Close Shave For Mark And Bopper On 'The Amazing Race'

The latest leg of " The Amazing Race " (sun., 8 p.m. ET on CBS) saw the return of fan favorite challenge, the head shave. Best friends Bopper and Mark were in last place in India so opted to chase the Fast Forward pass as their only real way of staying in the race. The price of the Fast Forward was to have their heads shaved. Longtime "TAR" viewers will, of course, remember Season 7 racers -- and eventual champs -- Joyce and Uchenna having their heads shaved in India for the Fast Forward all the way back in 2005. As the barbers went to work, Mark joked to Bopper that "you don't look as good as me, but you look good, bro." So, did the close shave pay off for the Kentuckians? In a word, no. After narrowly dodging elimination for several legs they were again the last to arrive on the mat. "You are the last team to arrive," said Phil Keoghan , "and I'm very sorry to tell you that you've been eliminated from the race." They took it pretty well and Bopper said that being on the race had opened his eyes. "I had no idea what I was missing out on," he told Phil.
