Amazing Race's Laura and Tyler: We Had No Idea We Were in First Place | TV Guide
Another team was crowned as champions of The Amazing Race on Feb. Season Laura Pierson and Tyler Adams She ended up not dating Tyler, an entrepreneur who recently launched PainScale, a mobile app for. @laura_pierson I've just finished watching Amazing Race S26! A bit behind the times, but still. so happy that you and Tyler won! You guys were so lovely and. Ignorance was bliss for Laura and Tyler on The Amazing Race finale. The top three were all blind date couples and you guys won, so what.
My experience was pretty similar: What was your first reaction to not only being paired with a stranger, but that it was under a romantic premise? And how did that reaction hold up once you were on the show? I was excited, but still, to think about doing something like this with a complete stranger scared me because the thing that I love about the show is the relationships. We became very good friends and it was fun for us.
I was definitely open-minded and willing to see how it worked, but I think immediately, you realize, this is just impossible. This is a serious race. We introduced ourselves and then 30 seconds later, we were crawling through the mud, clawing our way across this obstacle course. Then they ask you questions about how your first date is going!
Despite the romantic failure, I think fans were surprised by how well the stranger premise worked and shocked that there were three Blind Date couples in the Finals.
Was there a moment in the race where you felt like you were really clicking as a team? I feel like one of the most pivotal points for us was in Germany when we lost our passports.

That could have been the point when we went after each other, but we chose to stay positive and keep going. What happened, which is so weird, is that we just knew everything was going to be okay. If I yelled at him, what was that going to accomplish? It would make our team crumble, it would make us lose all respect for each other.
I was like, we are not going home—we are going to find these freaking fanny packs and we are going to keep racing. We were on The Amazing Race!
Every day was our birthday! Well, you definitely seemed very confident the whole time, like you knew you were going to be at the end because you were going to work hard enough to get there. What do you think gave you a leg up on the competition? I think in tough scenarios, we made smart decisions. Whether it was what cab driver you pick or staying up on the computer for hours in the airport.
I think we did have a little bit of an advantage because we did take so many pictures. Jenny and Jelani said it was tough for them because a lot of their pictures were them wearing the same thing in one airport or the next, and it was hard to tell which was which.
We had pictures where we stopped and took a picture with the guy building the hut and the guy from our dance in Tokyo. We had some identifiers that helped make it easier. We took time to take pictures during the race, which other people chose not to do, which is probably the smarter way to race! It was also nice to take a second to really look at these amazing memories that we made, that's just something that money can't buy. Did you have an informal alliance with Jenny and Jelani, or did you decide to work together at the tower because you thought you were in second and third?
I feel like the four of us had worked together on different Detours and driving. It was only natural. Plus, going down, Jenny and I were a little scared, but being together, it was like girl power time. I actually saw the flags first. And since we thought we were way behind Blair and Hayley, we were working together so we could catch up.
It was interesting that when we got down that they went the opposite direction than us. She actually didn't even see the flags. I kept saying the flags were by the railroad tracks.

She thought they were in a different location. There was a brick building and that's where she thought the flags were, so that's why they made the left [turn].
She actually just the wrong direction thinking it was the right way. You guys had some hilarious moments, like when you lost the fanny pack and just waited it out. That was actually the second time that happened for Team SoCal! The first time we lost it, we were on our way to Tokyo. That fanny pack moment was a very pivotal time for us. I don't know what else we could've done if we didn't wait. We couldn't check in with Phil if we didn't have our passports.
Yeah, when Bergen and Kurt showed up, it was awesome that they were there, but they said they had a blue car. We knew they were pretty much screwed, we hadn't been given much money for that day, so we knew we'd spend much of it driving. But then we started thinking, "What if it's in their car? It's sitting somewhere in Germany. We know we didn't drop it. We left it in the vehicle, so it would eventually come to us.
We just said a few prayers and hung tight and hoped for the best! What are Magdalena and Hayes up to?

We should go back. I wanna go on that yacht. I was very jealous that I had to run around in horrible shoes in a long dress with hair and makeup on while Tyler was hanging out at a yacht. That is not fair! I thought it was great! What are you gonna do with the money?

I want to spoil my family. I want to take my family on an amazing trip somewhere. It's hard to even say. I'm a saver, so I don't see myself doing something too crazy. I'm gonna want to invest. I'm also working on a blog called Hollywood and Hipster with my best friend.
She moved up to San Francisco a few weeks ago, so it's our way of staying connected with each other. In the startup life that I'm currently living, it'll be nice to have a little for myself and to keep working on some of the projects I have going on and invest in those companies.
My startup is called Two Truths. I'm definitely gonna go back on a big trip. Maybe a victory lap around the world next year. I'm also about to drive cross country. It's gonna be three weeks of epic adventures. I bought a drone. That was my first purchase. We're gonna film this incredibly journey. The top three were all blind date couples and you guys won, so what do you think of the twist?
