Zach and Flo win Amazing Race 3.
After threatening to quit the race repeatedly and shrieking more than a banshee with its leg stuck in a trap, Flo Pesenti crossed the finish line with her partner Zach Behr first, where Phil told them they won The Amazing Race 3. Married parents Teri and Ian came in second, with brothers Ken and Gerard close behind in third. All three teams were on nearly all the same flights and neck-and-neck for much of the two-hour finale, which took them from Vietnam to Hawaii and finally to Seattle. The Amazing Race 4, by the way, premieres February 26.
