Brothers Dan and Jordan won the Amazing Race Season 16 on May 9.
Cowboys Jet and Cord came in second place while dating models Brent and Caite got third.
The last episode of Season 16 of the Amazing Race began with dating models Brent and Caite getting their clue first. They caught a cab and headed to the airport, where a plane took them from Shanghai to San Francisco.
The ticket counter for the airline didn't open until 10:45 a.m. that morning, and all teams arrived hours before the plane took off. Jordan cut in front of the cowboys, creating animosity between the two teams. All teams got on the same plane, though while in flight Dan and Jordan moved themselves to first class.When the plane landed, Dan and Jordan bolted from the plane, getting a massive head start. The other two teams got into cabs and also headed toward the Presidio - a park near the Golden Gate bridge. At the park, they received a clue sending them to Coit Tower. Dan and Jordan got a bicyclist to solve it for them while the cowboys had bought a book with the answer.
Never miss a local story.
Meanwhile, Brent and Caite were lost with a bad cab driver.
Upon reaching the tower, they learned that one team member had to complete a vertical climb to its top to get their next clue. Still in first place, Dan and Jordan got the clue at the top and discovered they had to go to the Yoda Foundation, where they received their next clue. One of them became a "searcher" while the other became the "director." They were led by Star Wars stormtroopers to their next task.
The director had to lead the searcher, who wore a special suit, through a virtual world that only the director could see. The teams communicated via walkie-talkie as the director saw the virtual maze on a computer screen.
Once the cowboys showed up, Cord gave Dan and Jordan payback by shouting out different commands. Dan and Jordan still completed the task first, which caused a series of words to spin across the director's screen. When the searcher turned his head, the words slowed down and the director could see what they spelled.
Dan finished deciphering the message, learning that they needed to go to The Tonga Room. Dan and Jordan got a cab while the cowboys kept working on the message. Inside, they had to find a trunk and take it to their next location - the Great American Music Hall.
Meanwhile, Brent and Caite had caught up to the cowboys in the virtual reality world and both teams headed off toward the Tonga. The cowboys got there before the models, who had forgotten their money. This put the cowboys within striking distance of Dan and Jordan, though the latter made it to the music hall first.
The next clue opened their trunks with posters of the eliminated teams and with posters for non-elimination rounds. Dan and Jordan had kept a list of the elimination order and got their clue, which they figured out led them to Candlestick Park.
Meanwhile, the cowboys worked on putting their posters in order. Dan and Jordan had difficulty getting a cab, giving the cowboys a chance to catch up. Both sets of brothers headed to Candlestick Park, though Dan and Jordan made it to the stadium first.
