Amazing Race 9 Winner!


While watching the teams running to the finish line yesterday, arggghhhhhhhhhhhh I almost strangle Chester out of happiness.

The Amazing Race 9 Winner is deng deng deng non other than TTOWBJ & TYLER!!! Great job guys! Oh shall I say great job hippies! Well done! Omedeto Gozaimasu! You’re the first team that I support from first epi till the end and won. Wohooooo… Pssstt usually my favourite team didn’t win the 1 million.

Truthfully, I was writing you guys off from Japan up until the last roadblock at Colorado, USA. Well, that’s because Eric & Jeremy keep coming back in front.

The last road block –> This roadblock requires a team member to run into the field of 285 flags, find one flag for each of the nine foreign countries they visited on the Race and place them in the order in which they visited them. Once the Teams completed the task, they would have to run the flagged path to the finish line where the first Team would win one million dollars.

Hehe like this:

Eric was so near to completing the roadblock but he made several mistakes and more mistakes. To cut the long story short…BJ started placing his flags in proper order as Eric had two incorrect. With Eric still trying to fix his mistake, BJ placed the final flag in order. (words courtesy from AR9 site)

TTOWBJ & TYLER then runs to the snowy finish line…

…and you hear the familiar words coming out from Phil’s mouth “After 5 continents, nine countries, 59,000 miles… BJ & TYLER, you are the official Amazing Race 9 winner”.

Kudos to Eric & Jeremy for finishing second and Ray & Yolanda for finishing third.

Best quotes from AR 9:
Co-winner BJ noted, “I think that on this Race being cerebral doesn’t help as much as being in the moment. It’s just great to stay positive and really enjoy each other’s company. Our friendship is what got us through it.”

Tyler added, “BJ and I approached each country with wide eyes and enthusiasm and a huge spirit of adventure. There’s so much in this world. We might as well take advantage of as much as we can and give back as much as we can and that’s important. That’s how it all works.”

Funniest quote from AR9:
Eric & Jeremy saying this at the finish line: “We didn’t know the last part would involve brain”.

p/s: BJ is a graduate from Harvard university while Tyler is a graduated from UC Santa Cruz.
