Lyn and Karlyn are the first all-female team to make it to the final leg and the first all-female team to cross The Amazing Race finish line.
Tyler and James not only won The Amazing Race but they also won the first leg of the race. The only other team that accomplished this was Rob and Brennan in the program's premiere season.
This is the first season where the top three had never placed last in a non-elimination leg.
Departure Times: The teams departed from the Pit Stop and began this leg of the race at the following times:
Rob and Kimberly: 11:09 P.M.
Lyn and Karlyn: 11:44 P.M.
James and Tyler: 11:53 P.M.
This was the first season finale since the fourth season that was only an hour long.
Lyn and Karlyn are the only team in the final seven to never have been 1st in any leg.
Excedrin Power Through and Go Moment: There was no specific "Power Through and Go Moment" in this episode. Instead, Excedrin congratulated the final three teams. They also offered viewers a chance to log onto the CBS website and vote for their favorite Excedrin Power Through and Go Moment of the season.
Detour: In this finale, teams were given a Detour choice of Art or Fashion, "two cornerstones of Parisian culture." In Art, teams were required to pick up a painting and then take it to a local artist. In Fashion, teams traveled to the Anatomy Fashion Shop and then created a jacket using provided tools. All teams chose to complete Fashion, with was somewhat challenging, as the fashion designer overseeing the task was somewhat precise and demanding.
Roadblock: "Who ready to brave the skies over Normandy?" was the clue teams were given to help them decide who would do this leg's Roadblock. In the Roadblock for this episode, teams were asked to choose which member of the team was "ready to storm the beach." The member who chose to complete the Roadblock had to complete a 13,000 foot skydive over Normandy Beach in tandem with an instructor. Meanwhile, their partner would do a nosedive in the plane. Tyler, Karlyn and Kimberly chose to do the skydive.
Balance Sheet: Tyler and James rose from last to first and won The Amazing Race. Rob and Kimberly dropped from first to second. Lyn and Karlyn skydived from second to last. They missed a critical flight, placing them out of the running, but were still shown crossing the finish line.
Before the closing credits, CBS aired a promo for The Amazing Race 11: All Stars. The promo stated that the teams for this edition, which premieres in February 2007, are still a secret at this time. However, it promised new surprises and new relationships.
For the first time ever, the winning team was allowed to contact family by cell-phone upon winning and tell them that they had won the race. Tyler talked with his mother and James talked with his father.
The teams crossed the finish line and finished The Amazing Race in the following order:
#1. Tyler and James
#2. Rob and Kimberly
#3. Lyn and Karlyn
Tyler and James are the official winners of the tenth season of The Amazing Race.
Tyler: This is the time for heat to be applied to the other teams. No more friends.

Tyler: Listen, James and I just won The Amazing Race.
Mrs. Denk: (on cell-phone) What?! You won?! Oh my God.
Phil: Lyn and Karlyn, you're the third team to arrive. (The previously eliminated teams cheer for them.)
Lyn: This is just a dream come true. To finish the race and then be the first female team to cross the finish line, that means a lot.
Phil: Rob and Kimberly, it's been a long race. Congratulations. You're the second team to arrive.
Phil: Four continents, thirteen countries and 40,000 miles --- Tyler and James, you are the official winners of The Amazing Race. Congratulations! You guys have won the million dollars. Congratulations!
Rob: (to taxi driver, on the way to final destination) Can you go as fast as you can? It's worth a million dollars.
Kimberly: (after Rob repeatedly complains about not being the one to complete the skydiving Roadblock) I thought we were doing this to win a million dollars, not to skydive.
Lyn: (regarding the fashionista judge at the Fashion Detour) The lady judging was the Fashion Gestapo. All she wanted to say was "no."
Tyler: (regarding the skydiving) All right. That was unbelievable. That was awesome.
Kimberly: I've skydived before and I'm real bummed because I wanted Rob to do it.
Rob: (regarding the skydiving) I'm so bummed right now. The one thing I wanted to do.

Kimberly: Listen to meeee!
Phil: and repeatedly broke down.
Rob: (experiencing car troubles) It's not going into any gear. Oh my God, this car is blown up.

This finale was featured in both TV Guide magazine and as a Zap2It pick.
