Here's a brief recap on what happened this week on The Amazing Race season 34 grand finale

The first task of the final leg began in Lynchburg, Tennessee, inside a Jack Daniel’s Distillery. The teams had to correctly label and pack thirty bottles of Tennessee Whiskey. Once they completed the task, the three teams received their clue to the next task.

Emily and Molly completed the task first, followed by Derek and Claire. The next clue led them to the Korean Veterans Memorial Bridge. Derek and Claire reached the clue box ahead of the other two teams and received the clue for their Roadblock.

A member from each team had to rapple and climb a bridge in order to receive a clue from a guitar pick. Derek completed the climb first and the couple then headed over for their next clue. They arrived at the Gibson Garage where former Amazing Race teammates Caroline and Jennifer handed the clue over to them.

The teams had to deliver guitars in order to get their next clue. They had to deliver it to three musicians performing in different locations in downtown Broadway. Sisters Molly and Emily got lost. However, Derek and Claire completed their deliveries and headed over for their last task.


For their final task, the teams had to play a giant floor piano with their feet. The teams had to play the right notes in under 11 seconds. While all three teams tried their best to complete it first, Derek and Claire once again succeeded and had to make their way to the finish line, which was The Rhyman.

Ultimately, Derek and Claire reached the pit stop first and bagged the trophy and grand cash prize. They revealed that money is the first step towards their future together and shared that they plan on moving-in together.

The Amazing Race airs only on CBS. No information about season 35 has been revealed as of yet. Stay tuned for more information.
