Amazing Race: Episode 2

Here’s an update on Margie and Luke Adams. Luke’s deaf and his mom has joined him on the CBS show The Amazing Race. They are in the running for one million dollars.

After the first episode, they were in first place! Luke told the audience he just wanted to show people what a deaf person can do.

Another team (siblings Tammy and Victor) say Luke is "very observant". All of the teams say Margie and Luke are a force to be reckoned with.

During the second episode, Luke gives Jaime (an former NFL cheerleader) which says "kick ass and don't get eliminated." Luke admits to the audience that he likes the redheads.

At point in the show, Margie and Luke decide to throw pies at each other over Luke’s objection. He says, "What can I do? She's my mom."

At the end of the second show, they find out they now in 4th place. A very respectable start.

Luke has been deaf since the age of two and communicates by sign language. The 22-year-old is the first deaf contestant on the CBS show. His mother, Marge, is 51-years-old and works as a clinical research associate.
