The Amazing Race 7 concludes tonight.
After 10 episodes, The Amazing Race 7 concludes tonight with a two-hour finale starting at 9 p.m. ET. With the teams now in London, this may mark the first time the race has not circled the earth (unless they take the long way back to the US). This season, the course has followed a path through South America, Africa, India, the Middle East, and now Europe. Will Rob and Amber skid across the finish line in first place, just in time for their May 24 wedding special, airing on CBS in the same time slot as TAR? Or will Joyce and Uchenna or Ron and Kelly be able to stop the reality TV whores in their tracks? We’ll know soon.
