After winning the popular reality show "The Amazing Race" on December 7, sister and brother team, Starr and Nick Spangler, shared their excitement to be the champion of the CBS' show season thirteen. On December 8, Starr and Nick spoke to Reality TV World about winning the race as well as their experience during the around-the-world competition.
As stated by Nick, he was surprised to have won the race because at that time he thought that their rival, Ken and Tina, probably had a chance to beat them on the last challenge. "It was unbelievable. I can't really put it into words except. Honestly, I never stopped doubting that maybe Ken and Tina had somehow beat us," said Nick.
Contrary to her brother, Starr believed that her team would be the winner because she knew that her team was ahead of their rival. She said, "See, I knew in the cab as we were going to the mansion that we were ahead of them, and as long as we didn't stop and we got to the mansion in a reasonable amount of time I knew we were going to be first."
Through the interview, Nick also shared about how he regretted being rude to one of the contestants, Sarah, though the woman had started to hate him first. Nick stated, "I guess the one moment I regret would be [when I was] rude to [Sarah Leshner] at that first Roadblock in Brazil when we were at the wall and I said 'Oh screw this,' and I didn't work with her."
Nick, a 22-year-old actor from New York, and Starr, a 21-year-old former NFL cheerleader from Fort Worth, TX, were the first team to reach the race's finish line in Portland, OR. They have suceeded on securing the $1 million grand prize against their close rivals, Ken and Tina Greene, and Andrew Lappitt and Dan Honig.
Meanwhile, "Separated Couple" team, Ken and Tina Greene, finished the race as the first runner-up followed by "Fraternity Brothers", Andrew Lappitt and Dan Honig, as the second runner-up.
