Shane Haw and Andrew Thoday have won The Amazing Race Australia 2012! The Melbourne police officers won $250,000 prize money, beating “alpha males” Paul Montgomery and Steve Scale, and cheerleading twins Michelle and Jo Troy, to the finish line on Fraser Island along the coast of Queensland. The three teams had travelled more than 65,000km across four continents. Andrew said of their victory, “The adrenaline rush running into the final pit stop with that chest in our grasp and the other contestants cheering for us was exhilarating. To win is absolutely mind blowing. I am very proud of Shane and myself.” Congrats to Shane and Andrew!
