Beekman Boys Crowned Winners of 'The Amazing Race' Season 21

Last night Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge brought home a cool $1 million dollars as the winners of The Amazing Race.

The pair, better known as the stars of The Fabulous Beekman Boys, pulled ahead of runners-up Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis, and Trey Wier and Lexi Beerman during the season's final leg in New York City which brought them from Coney Island to Gotham Hall with stops at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and the United Nations in between. Fourth runners up, Natalie and Nadiya Anderson, were eliminated in Loire Valley, France.

The Beekmans were only the third team to win the prize without winning one leg prior to the finale.

"We were the underdogs," Josh said after their big win. "And what I hope this proves to people whether they're a minority, out of work or they're losing their house or whatever, that if they just keep going and just keep working as hard as they can, people will help and at some time, you will win."

The couple is looking forward to using the money to spend more time together on their farm in upstate New York. “This race has really brought us back together again,” Brent said. “I had to work in the city, and he’s on the farm. So winning this race actually will bring us physically together again…for the next 50 years.”

No Spoiler Warning?!?!

No spoiler warning guys? Thanks for ruining the finale! Not all of us are watching it as it airs. You could have at least put the result after the fold.
