Huntington Beach couple wins 'The Amazing Race'

January 22, 2008|From the Associated Press

Rachel Rosales and TK Erwin finished first in the Last Frontier to win CBS' "The Amazing Race" and the reality TV show's $1-million prize.

During the race's final leg in Anchorage, Alaska, the Huntington Beach couple searched through tanks filled with live crabs, scaled the side of a glacier, soared through the air in a helicopter and solved a puzzle before crossing the finish line.

"Nice guys can definitely finish first," the dreadlocked Erwin said after their win.

Erwin, 22, and Rosales, 23, outraced father-and-daughter team Ronald and Christina Hsu and grandfather-and-grandson team Donald Jerousek and Nicolas Fulks in Alaska to win.

In the show's twelfth edition, racers trekked from the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles through Ireland, the Netherlands, Burkina Faso, Lithuania, Croatia, Italy, India, Japan and Taiwan to their final destination in Alaska.
