'The Amazing Race' - 'Finale'The final three teams took off from Panama headed back to the United States for the final leg of this edition of 'The Amazing Race' (Sun., 8PM ET On CBS). When the final destination city was revealed to be Atlanta, all three remaining teams immediately knew this would give an edge to Marcus and Amani because that's their hometown. Was it enough for the married couple to win?


Unlike some past seasons, it looked like one pivotal moment dropped one team behind, eliminating any chance of a close finish. At the flight simulator, it was Marcus and Amani who struggled to land the plane and essentially cost themselves a shot at winning.

Down to two teams, it was the interpretation of the next clue that pushed Ernie and Cindy into a lead they would not let up. When looking for "The Dump," Jeremy and Sandy wasted too much time at a furniture store, while Ernie and Cindy learned that it was the home of 'Gone With the Wind' author Margaret Mitchell.

Some slick editing made things look closer than they likely were as these two teams raced to the finish. With a flawless final leg, Ernie and Cindy more than deserved their hard-earned victory. Jeremy and Sandy came in second, while Marcus and Amani were still proud to have never given up with their third place finish.
