After winning the $1 million prize on 'The Amazing Race,' Ernie Halvorsen and Cindy Chiang dropped in on 'Live!' (weekdays, syndicated on on ABC) to tell Kelly and guest-host Taye Diggs about what it was like to compete in, and ultimately win the competition that took them on a global adventure.
Kelly asked the engaged couple whose idea it was to go on the show. "It was her idea," Ernie said, and Cindy elaborated. "When we first started dating he was like, 'Oh, let's go out to dinner,' and I was like 'No, we have to watch the show.'" Ernie talked about the regimen that Cindy, a self-professed type-A personality, created for the couple to prepare for the competition.
