The Amazing Race Winners: Crowned!

at . Comments

The Amazing Race has crowned its 21st pair of winners.

Following a two-hour season finale that features a trio of teams - Lexi and Try, James and Jaymes, Josh and Brent - venturing from Europe to New York, the finalists ended up at the United Nations.

Once there, the tandems paired up the words for "hello" and "goodbye" from the nine nations they visited throughout their travels.

And who came out on top of this memory challenge? Josh and Brent!

“We never, ever thought we would hear you say those words to us,” Brent admitted just after Phil Keoghan announced them as champions. We have a feeling many viewers felt the same way, as Josh concluded:

“We were underdogs, and what I hope this proves to people - whether they’re a minority or they’re out of work or they’re losing their house or whatever - if they just keep going and keep working as hard as they can, people will help, and at some point you will win.”

Nice guys really can finish first apparently.
