The Amazing Race 6 concludes tonight.
The Amazing Race 6 ends its 13-week run after “4 Continents, 24 Cities, 40,000 Miles,” which also happens to be the name of tonight’s two-hour finale episode. Starting at 9 p.m. ET, four teams will race for the finish line in the United States, starting from the pit stop in Shanghai. The remaining teams: closet-case Adam Malis and his “girlfriend” Rebecca Cardon; model/actors, but not Star Wars actor, Hayden Kristianson and Aaron Crumbaugh; model Freddy Holliday and his culturally ignorant model-girlfriend Kendra Bentley; and Kris Perkins and Jon Buehler, who have barely been noticeable throughout the whole race. One team will win $1 million; the others won’t.
