After five continents, 34,000 miles and a dozen legs, Season 27 of “The Amazing Race” came to a close Friday night with episode 12, “We Got a Chance Baby.” But who won: powerhouse duo Justin and Diana, news team Kelsey and Joey or paparazzi pair Logan and Chris? And did YOU predict the results?
As you can see, 52% of our users did. They pegged Kelsey and Joey, who have never been first to the mat in the previous 11 legs, to finally break that losing streak when it really mattered.
With Justin and Diana having dominated this season, winning seven legs, it is not surprising that almost one-third of those entrants in our contest predicted them to prevail one last time.
Logan and Chris had never finished first until the penultimate leg. However, the advantage of starting the final sprint to the finish line in the pole position was quickly eliminated as there was an equalizer with all three teams on the same flight from Hong Kong to New York City.
In our “Amazing Race predictions center, we’ve been asking users like YOU to predict the ultimate winners all season long.
