'The Amazing Race' Finale: Fans React to Surprise Proposal at the Finish Line!
By Zach Seemayer
Congratulations are in order for more reasons than one. After a strong game all season, Will Jardell and James Wallington emerged victorious during the season finale of The Amazing Race, and topped their big win with an engagement!
Wednesday night's finale saw the three remaining pairs -- including Will and James, brothers Riley and Maddison McKibbin, and married couple Hung Nguyen and Chee Lee -- return to the US for a race across New Orleans that came to an end at the Superdome.
Will and James took an early lead and then just kept going strong until crossing the finish line, where they were declared the winners.
In a moment of pure joy -- and excellent reality TV -- Will dropped down onto one knee and popped the question. Unsurprisingly, James immediately said yes, and the pair officially took the next step in their sweet romance -- and cemented their place in the pantheon of great Amazing Race duos.
Fans could not get enough, and they took to Twitter to share their excitement, their tears of joy and their happiness for the newly engaged champions.
