Amazing Race Finalie

The first deaf contestant on CBS’s Amazing Race was leading the competition going into the final leg of the race but he lost to a brother-sister team. Luke Adams had just graduated as valedictorian of the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind. He partnered in the race with his mom (Marge). On the finalie, teams were required to prepare pigs for luaus in Hawaii and then race on personal watercrafts to find clues floating on the water. Luke started fast but couldn't get the last one right. After it was obvious they could not win, Luke told Marge during the cab ride to the finish line, "I'm very lucky to have you as my mom.”
