Katherine Chang and Natalie Strand won The Amazing Race Season 17, taking home the $1 million prize. Both anesthesiologists, Chang and Strand made history when they crossed the finish line during Leg 12. The duo became the first team comprised solely of women to win the reality competition. It proved an exciting moment, and they weren’t the only pair to make an impression during the last round.

The second-place team was also made up of two women, and they came close to securing the win. It was difficult to know who to cheer for during season 17’s finale, even as the gap between the winners and runner-ups widened.

Fortunately, even The Amazing Race‘s runner-ups take home cash for their achievements.

Katherine Chang and Natalie Strand may have won The Amazing Race Season 17, but they weren’t the only team to make it to the final Leg. The Amazing Race‘s runner-ups put on an impressive show as well, even if they couldn’t keep up with the doctor duo.

Home Shopping hosts Brook Roberts and Claire Champlin won second place that year, while Jill Haney and Thomas Wolfhard came in third. The final obstacles stumped both pairs, but watching them scramble toward the finish line still proved entertaining.

All in all, season 17 proved a suspenseful outing up until the very end. Its contestants made history in its final episode, and the runner-ups came close to achieving victory. Needless to say, this outing is well worth a rewatch. And fans will have time to dive in after The Amazing Race Season 34 concludes.

The Amazing Race Season 17 is coming to Netflix on Dec. 4, 2022.
