Chip, Reichen win Amazing Race 4.

The summer of gay TV continued as Reichen and Chip won The Amazing Race 4, becoming the first gay couple to do so. The married pair came in ahead of Kelly and Jon, who missed a connecting flight in Tokyo and fell 70 minutes behind.

The race concluded at Papago Park in Phoenix, Arizona. Despite their first-place start on the final leg, David and Jeff fell behind by getting on a bad flight to Hawaii, and were notified the race was over once they arrived on the island.
