'Amazing Race': Winning team is...

For the 18th season of  Amazing Race , eleven teams returned seeking redemption after losing their first time around. Of course, only one team could  actually attain the sought-after redemption — going into last night’s two-hour season finale, seven teams had lost again, usually for the same reasons why they lost on their first go-round. (Message to Team Goth: Consider taking an orienteering course if you ever come back for a third  Race .) In the end, though, one team successfully took home the $1 million prize. Find out this season’s  Amazing Race  grand champion team  after the jump… After a remarkably consistent season spent near the front of the pack, the sporty sisters  Jen and Kisha  finally got a first-place finish when it counted, beating the always-competitive Globetrotters and the Gary/Mallory All-American Combo for ultimate victory. Considering their infamous exit in their first  Race  — stopping for a bathroom break at an incredibly critical moment — it must have felt especially validating for the pair. I was sad to see Zev and Justin — who were my ridiculously early pick to win it all — go out in the first half of the season finale. (Zev was undone by the Samba, like so many great men before him.) I was also sad to see Gary and Mallory, long a dark horse pick thanks to her hyper-caffeinated energy and his ability to be incredibly talented at almost everything, fall victim to the nefarious scourge of the Lost Cab Driver. It seemed for a moment like the Globetrotters might triumph, but the winds of Florida did them in. But let’s salute Jen and Kisha for putting on a great show. Their  Race  business, at least, is finished. Read More... http://popwatch.ew.com/2011/05/08/amazing-race-season-finale-winner/

Amazing Race's Phil Keoghan: Get Ready for a "Really Tight Finish"

Phil Keoghan promises the promo hyping a "photo finish" on The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business is not an exaggeration. "It's a really tight finish. We really didn't know right up until the last minute exactly who was going to come around the corner," he tells TVGuide.com. "But that's what makes it so exciting. The last couple of seasons, we've had a few wins that were not as close, so this was a real treat." Read More... http://www.tvguide.com/News/Amazing-Race-Finale-Keoghan-1032777.aspx?rss=breakingnews

Who Will Win 'The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business'? Host Phil Keoghan Weighs In

The stakes are even higher than normal for the final four teams on this season of 'The Amazing Race.' Considering each pair has competed on the Race once before -- and failed -- they've all had a lot to prove. "Who's more motivated to come back and redeem themselves for stupid mistakes, for really bad luck, for penalties at the wrong time, for getting lost, for taking the most untimely pee break in the history of 'The Amazing Race,'" asked host Phil Keoghan when AOL TV chatted with him earlier this week. "Who's been living with that unfinished business, and who would make for an interesting comeback?" On Sunday night (8PM ET on CBS), a pair of Harlem Globetrotters, two sisters, a father and a daughter and two best friends will cross the finish line of 'The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' in Miami. AOL TV asked Phil to help handicap the strengths and weaknesses of the remaining teams. After the jump, find out which team Phil says is the one to beat. http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/05/06/the-amazing-race-unfinished-business-finale-phil-keoghan/

Interview: Kent and Vyxsin of 'The Amazing Race' Say The Globetrotters Are 'Big Babies'

Kent and Vyxsin had one of the most dramatic and amusing returns to The Amazing Race we've ever seen. When they weren't bickering (usually about forgetting something), they were making us laugh with their commentary, or fighting with the Globetrotters. I had the opportunity to ask "The Goths" some questions and find out more about the Globetrotters, what happened in Varanasi, and how they feel about their race. You won't want to miss this one.

'The Amazing Race': What's the Matterhorn?

The teams are in Switzerland, and taking helicopters! Zev and Justin are feeling first and fortunate. Kisha and Jen, departing second, are having more fun this time around. And they're going to have extra fun with that whole dollar for the leg of the race. Kent and Vyxsin put on extra glitter for this leg of the race (to match the snow), and are convinced they're getting along better. Kent and Vyxsin have trouble getting a cab, and Gary and Mallory don't. This pisses Kent off to the point of well, more complaining. The Globetrotters catch up and everyone waits for their helicopters, departing five minutes apart. They have a lot of safety gear on, which worries some of the teams, while other team members are worried about the helicopter ride. Has their been a major heights Road Block yet?

Amazing Race's Kent and Vyxsin: The Globetrotters Were "Very Appalling"

A 30-minute penalty for taking a cab to the Pit Stop instead of going by foot doomed Kent Kaliber and Vyxsin Fiala on The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business , but the real drama came at the Roadblock when the Globetrotters accused Vyxsin of stealing Flight Time's gnome mold. "I didn't take it," Vyxsin tells TVGuide.com. "It was pretty clear on the episode the way they showed it when I put mine on the bottom shelf. I talked to the chocolate teachers and everybody said, 'No, of course, you didn't take it.'" Of course, that wasn't enough to stop the Globetrotters from taunting the Goths — behavior Kent dubs "pretty disgusting." See what else they have to say about the Globetrotters and which team should not be underestimated. http://www.tvguide.com/News/Amazing-Race-Kent-Vyxsin-1032603.aspx?rss=breakingnews
