Flo is the first female contestant on The Amazing Race to be a member of the winning team. In addition, Flo and Zach were the first co-ed to win the race.
The teams finished in the following order in the first leg of this episode:
#1. Teri and Ian. (Prize: 7 Night Alaskan Vacation)
#2. Ken and Gerard.
#3. Flo and Zach.
The teams finished in the following order in the second leg of this episode:
#1. Flo and Zach.
#2. Teri and Ian.
#3. Ken and Gerard.
Teri and Ian are the only team this season who never arrived at a Pit Stop or the finish line last, with the exception of Heather and Eve, who, when they were eliminated, arrived in first, but were eliminated due to a time penalty.
Balance Sheet 2: Flo and Zach move up from third to first. Teri and Ian move down from first to second. Ken and Gerard move down from second to last.
Balance Sheet 1: Teri and Ian remain in first. Ken and Gerard move up from third to second. Flo and Zach move down from second to last but are not eliminated.
Zach and Flo were the youngest team to ever win The Amazing Race. Alex, Megan and Tommy Linz would later beat them in Season 8. However, this was the Family Edition, where the age limit was lower than normal. Zach and Flo still remain the youngest team to win the normal race as of the program's eleventh season.
Teri and Ian and Ken and Gerard were the only teams in the third season of The Amazing Race to not check in at a Pit Stop in last place. However, Ken and Gerard did reach the Finish Line in last place.
There were no Fast Forwards on both legs of this finale. All three teams have already used their one and only Fast Forward.
(Leg 12: Vietnam)
Flo/Zach chose "Basket Boats," where they had to paddle a basket boat across a river to their next clue. They also became the first team ever to quit both Detour tasks, returning to, and eventually completing, their initial choice. Ken/Gerard and Teri/Ian chose "Basket Bikes," where they had to ride bikes carrying a large number of woven baskets one mile to their next clue.
(Leg 13: Hawaii)
All teams chose "Quick Drop," where they rode in a harness 160' down to the water below to retrieve their next clue from near a waterfall. The other option was "Slow Walk," where teams would have walked along a rugged trail to the clue box.
(Leg 12: Vietnam)
In the first leg, one team member had to use a fishing platform to raise a fishing net out of the water with the clue dangling underneath. Ian, Zach and Gerard completed this Roadblock.
(Leg 13: Seattle, Washington)
The Roadblock in the second leg was that one team member had to spin animal faces on a totem pole to show the chronological order they appeared in the race. The animals are donkey, dolphin, horse, goat and manatee. When the animals were in the correct order, the mouth at the bottom of the totem pole would spit out their next clue. Zach, Ian and Gerard completed this final Roadblock.
Flo: I knew a woman had to win this race. I just didn't think it would be me!
Phil: Four continents, 13 countries, 41,000 miles. Flo and Zach, you are the official winners of The Amazing Race and you've won the one million dollar prize!
Zach: (when running to the finish line) Do you see Ken & G?
Zach: They're hiding!
Flo: (to taxi driver) Sir, I've never been so happy to see you!
Teri: (to taxi driver) We gotta get to Lincoln Park.
Ian: We're talking urgent! We're talking race!
Zach: We're young, we're fast, we're healthy. We're gonna destroy these other teams and leave them in the dust!
Flo: (at the Quick Drop Detour) No eyes open but whatever you do, don't let go!
Flo: I don't wan to listen to Ian talk anymore!
Ian: So the playing field is level again.
Gerard: I can't tell you the joy and excitement I feel about having a level playing field!
Flo: I'm so hungry!
Ken: You gotta stop whining, it's too early!
Gerard: (after working with Teri and Ian to book tickets) Do we have an alliance with Teri and Ian?
Ken: Oh my gosh, I think we have an alliance with Teri and Ian!
Flo: All this honking around me, I feel like I'm in the twilight zone! The only thing keeping me sane is this Diet Coke, which gives me memories of real life!
Ken: (regarding the flat tire incident) We worked in tandem.
Gerard: I worked in tandem. You supervised!
Ken: I did not supervise! I was working also.
Teri & Ian's Taxi Driver: (when passing Ken and Gerard) Number one!
Zach: (regarding the basket bikes) This is a little heavier than my mountain bike at home!
Ian: (seeing Teri on the basket bike) She's got the whole town helping her! God bless her!
Zach: Ian tries to convince everyone to believe that he's the village idiot.
Flo: Maybe the village idiot is the part that needs to be played to win this game, but Ian gets me rattled up and makes me want to beat his sorry behind!
Ken: Gerard, your Vietnamese is awesome! Just perfect!
Zach: You want water?
Flo: I don't want to drink water cause I have to pee so badly!
Zach: When we were getting off the train in Hue, we decided we would just take it easy, because Flo's not that into it!
Flo: (hearing the same disco music in the train) This music, I knew it! I predicted this music!
Flo: My foot is asleep!
Zach: That's good. The more sleep the better, at this stage!
Gerard: (imitating taxi driver) Look out! Look out! (pretends to honk a horn and driver through the traffic)
Zach: Home stretch for us!
Flo: Beginning of the end for me!
Zach: Don't think this is the end, yet!
Ken: (to taxi driver) I don't want you to break the law, but if you see a red light, go through it.
Zach: Half the time I was saying, "we can do it," on the inside I'm thinking, "we're done."
Flo: Let's push it, Zach. It's not like Driving Miss Daisy here.
Ian: They're slithering to the finish line like the rest of us.
Flo: I'm sorry I've been a total pain in the ass this whole trip. (when Zach doesn't respond) You're supposed to say, "You haven't been!"
Zach: You haven't been. You have been a total pain in the ass!
Like the previous leg, to avoid confusion with the multitude of pre-existing banners in red and yellow, Vietnam's national colors, flags for the race were yellow-only until the teams departed Vietnam.
Flo and Zach are the winners of the third run of The Amazing Race.
This special finale episode of the third season of The Amazing Race was two hours long.
