The “Early Show’s” Chris Wragge talks to sisters Jen and LaKisha Hoffman, winners of “The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business,” and presents them with their check for $1 million.
Sisters Kisha and Jen Hoffman are the second all-female team to win the American edition of the Race. Kisha is the first openly lesbian Racer to win.
“The Amazing Race” is a reality television game show in which teams of two people, who have some form of a preexisting personal relationship, race around the world in competition with other teams. Contestants strive to arrive first at “pit stops” at the end of each leg of the race to win prizes and to avoid coming in last, which carries the possibility of elimination or a significant disadvantage in the following leg (segment). Contestants travel to and within multiple countries in a variety of transportation modes, including planes, balloons, helicopters, trucks, bicycles, taxicabs, rental cars, Jeepneys, trains, buses, boats, and by foot. The clues (cryptic hints) provided in each leg lead the teams to the next destination or direct them to perform a task, either together or by a single member. These challenges are related in some manner to the country wherein they are located or its culture. Teams are progressively eliminated until three are left; at that point, the team that arrives first in the final leg is awarded a grand prize.
