Daniel & Ryan win The Amazing Race: Aus v NZ
Nice guys finish first with $250,000 as their prize.
Daniel, 29, and Ryan, 33, raced from Argentina to Los Angeles to the final Pit Stop on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road, defeating Sally Yamamoto and Tyson Smith from Perth who came second and Ashleigh and Jarrod Jende from Melbourne who placed third. Both runner-up teams were awarded one million Velocity Frequent Flyer Points from Virgin Australia.
While filming wrapped some time ago, now the boys get to share their good news.
“It’s absolutely exhilarating! It’s such a great feeling and also a huge relief to have made it not only this far but also to take out the top spot,” said Daniel and Ryan.
“We have told no one so this is going to be a massive surprise and party for all of our family and friends. Especially our lovely ladies who have no idea that we won! It will be great to finally share the whole experience with them.”
“We want to help our family and friends who have supported us throughout our lives and journey, and definitely do some more travelling.”
This was the third season of the locally-produced show, but the first produced internally by Seven.
