After 40,000 miles, nine countries, five continents and two aggressive product placements for Travelocity and Snapple, a pair of former losers won The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business.

So which second-chance team earned the million-dollar prize--and redemption--in tonight's feel-good finale?

Sisters LaKisha and Jennifer Hoffman crossed the finish mat in Miami first, the second (and consecutive) win for an all-women team in The Amazing Race.

And no team had more to prove than Kisha and Jen, whose infamous pit stop (Jen was drinking a lot of water) at Beijing's Olympic stadium knocked them out of the finals in their fourteenth season.

The sisters movingly dedicated their Mother's Day win to their mom, promising, "Now it's time to give back to her." Aw!

Riding to second-place were Harlem Globetrotters teammates Herb "Flight Time" Lang and Nate "Big Easy" Lofton, who pedaled mightily on giant tricycles across the Florida Keys' old Seven-Mile Bridge (shorter than their previous ride down Lichtenstein but vastly more strenuous), but simply could not catch up to the women.

Bubbly beauty queen Mallory Ervin celebrated her third-place finish with dad Gary with her typical jubilance, even after their chances at victory were destroyed by an incompetent cab driver named Sterling (who certainly did not live up to his name). Even more poignant than their genuine goodwill was Gary's gratitude that his daughter still enjoys spending time with her old dad. Can we get another aw?

Best friends Justin Kanew and Zev Glassenberg (the first person with Asperger's syndrome to compete on The Amazing Race) finished this season in fourth place--a much better showing than their initial outing in season 15, when they lost Zev's passport. Zev was handicapped in a Brazilian dancing competition by his self-proclaimed "white-boy rhythm," and the hirsute team had to receive more attention at the Copacabana body waxing studio. (Let's just say Steve Carell's 40-Year-Old Virgin chest wax was a cakewalk in comparison.) But after four first-place finishes this season, the fan faves had reason to be proud. Concluded Zev: "[Justin] was the race--I was the amazing."

Unlike the other leg winners, Jen and Kisha "never finished first--till it mattered" at the final victory mat in Miami. Before they got there, Jen had to first conquer one of her greatest fears: water. Since their pool fiasco in season 14, however, Jen revealed she took swim lessons, and fought off mermaids without panicking in a bizarre underwater challenge.

Another kind of water proved no problem for the winning team. "I will pee my pants" rather than stop during the final leg, Jen declared beforehand.

But while both sisters turned on the waterworks while paying tribute to their mother's lifetime of sacrifice, Jen's pants stayed dry.
