    Linz Kids Win "The Amazing Race" (12/13)

    Don't know who watches, but I do... these guys were terrific all the way. They did Cincinnati proud with their Who Dey shirts and Bengals gear. It was exciting all the way.

    Congrats!

    Linz kids take $1 mil prize
    By John Kiesewetter / Enquirer staff writer

    The amazing Linz kids from Anderson Township won the $1-million prize on “The Amazing Race: Family Edition” Tuesday.

    Nick, 24, Alex, 23, Megan, 21 and Tommy (aka “Bone”), 19, won final leg of the race from Montana to Montreal to Niagra Falls, then gave national TV viewers a “Who Dey” chant.

    They had started the final episode Tuesday in second place, and stayed there most of the first hour Tuesday. They moved into the lead for good in Toronto the final hour, and won by being first to complete a 71-piece map puzzle of North and Central America.

    “A million dollars is at stake, and it’s all about geography,” mused Megan, a Miami University junior, while brother Nick pieced the puzzle together.

    The Linzes will be presented their $1 million check shortly after 8 a.m. today on CBS’ “Early Show” (Channel 12).

    The victory by the Linzes – who wore orange “Who Dey” shirts on the show – was not a complete surprise.

    An Internet site, www.sportsbook.com, suspended wagering before the Sept. 27 premiere because of the large number of bets from Ohio placed on the Linzes to win. Betting had been suspended in the spring edition on a Houston couple, who won the “Race” two months later.

    More than 150 Linz family members and friends gathered Tuesday at McFadden’s in downtown Cincinnati to cheer for the kids, as they’ve done every week.

    All 10 members of the Linz family – parents Tom and Terri, their seven children and daughter-in-law – were in New York at a CBS party for the finale with the nine other teams.

    Mrs. Linz insisted that all 10 attend because they were together in a Cancun airport, on Christmas vacation last year, when a casting director asked if they would consider auditioning for a reality TV show.

    During the 11-week series, the Linz team became a fan favorite. Viewers have enjoyed their humor and support for each other, while other families fought and argued with each other.

    “The Linz children have done such a great job on the show. They’ve been very respectful, polite and have had fun – and represented the city of Cincinnati very well,” says Pattie Fisher of Batavia, an “Amazing Race” fan from Batavia who attended the weekly viewing party.

    The Linz siblings will do their first interviews today since taping the show in July.

    Walter Branson and his daughters from from Park Ridge, Il., placed second. Widow Linda Weaver and her children from Ormond Beach, Fla., were third.

    Host Phil Keoghan, during a September visit to Cincinnati, said he admired how they adapted to situations during seen during the 11-week series.

    “I love the Linzes. They’re naïve in a good way, meaning they’re receptive to change,” Keoghan said.

    You've got to be kidding me!

    They were the ONLY team (except for the Black family) that didn't argue or ***** and moan every week. Most of the teams should be really ashamed of how they treated their family team members... and I hope they are after seeing it all aired on national TV.

    Linz kids take $1 million prize

    By John Kiesewetter
    Enquirer staff writer

    The amazing Linz kids from Anderson Township won the $1-million prize on “The Amazing Race: Family Edition” Tuesday.

    And their story continued to be amazing this morning, when the Linzes – Nick, 24, Alex, 23, Megan, 21 and Tommy (aka “Bone”), 19 – said on CBS “The Early Show” they would give half the money to their parents, Tom and Terri Linz, and split the remaining $500,000 seven ways, one share for each of the seven Linz children.

    “This is the Family Edition of the race. We’re just a small little core of our family,” said Alex, an emergency room technician at Anderson Mercy Hospital. “We did this for them (our parents). We wish they could have gone on the race with us. So it’s straight to them.”

    “They deserve it,” said Megan. She said the decision to share the money with her other brothers – Matt, 27, Travis (“TJ”) 25, and Tim, 16, a St. Xavier High School junior – was made long ago. “Going in, this is what we decided we wanted to do with the money,” she said.

    Host Phil Keoghan, who presented the check, again praised the Linzes for their enthusiasm and high spirits throughout the 25-day trek through 50 cities last summer.

    “These guys kept a sense of humor through the whole thing, and having met their parents, you could see it comes from their parents,” Keoghan said on “The Early Show.”

    All 10 members of the Linz family – parents Tom and Terri, their seven children and daughter-in-law Liz – attended the Tuesday night two-hour finale in New York with the nine other teams at CBS. Mrs. Linz insisted that all 10 attend because they were together in a Cancun airport, on Christmas vacation last year, when a casting director asked if they would consider auditioning for a reality TV show.

    On the Tuesday finale, the Linzes won the final leg of the race from Montana to Montreal to Niagra Falls, then gave national TV viewers a “Who Dey” chant.

    They had started the final episode in second place, and stayed there most of the first hour. They moved into the lead for good in Toronto the final hour, and won by being first to complete a 71-piece map puzzle of North and Central America.

    “A million dollars is at stake, and it’s all about geography,” mused Megan, a Miami University junior, while brother Nick pieced the puzzle together on the show.

    “The Linz children have done such a great job on the show. They’ve been very respectful, polite and have had fun – and represented the city of Cincinnati very well,” says Pattie Fisher of Batavia, an “Amazing Race” fan from Batavia who attended the weekly viewing party.

    Walter Bransen and his daughters from from Park Ridge, Il., placed second. Widow Linda Weaver and her children from Ormond Beach, Fla., were third.

    The race started Sept. 27 with 10 families. More than 10.6 million people have watched “The Amazing Race,” ranked No. 32 this fall. Cincinnati has been CBS’ No. 1 city for the show.

    It was funny when I was coming home from work last night they were talking about them on WLW. They wondered if Marty was going to yell at them too.

    I watched the second half or so of the season. I really liked it, and I thought the Linzes were great competitors who seemed to be having a lot of fun together. No other team can come close to saying that.

    Who Dey!

    I watched the whole season. I always watch the Amazing Race. I love it.

    The two families I was most impressed with were the Linezes and the family that had the two little kids. They were both real class families.

    Congrats to the Linz family. Job well done.


    Also, RBA, I don't know where your comments about them being punks came from

    They were one of the few teams that showed respect to their family members throughout.

    It seem the boys couldn't keep their hormones in check.

    And I didn't like the way they treated their sister. You could tell she was not feeling good during some of the segments, but they kept making snide comments to her.

    And they did make disparaging remarks about the other teams, especially the Weavers.

    I did read your post back then, thanks for that.

    I know it was my choice to open the thread to read it, but I really wished I wouldn't have read it. More fun in recent seasons when I didn't know who won. Curiousity killed the cat.

    Their hormones in check? Where the heck did that come from? And I thought they treated their sister very well, as she did them.... especially considering how most guys treat their sisters! I don't remember any snide comments, even when she wasn't feeling well... if anything, I felt they were empathizing. IMHO, they were a great loving and fun family that pretty much took everything in stride and got along great, especially when compared to the others.

    Granted they picked on each other, the way all siblings do. But it was always done in a joking manner, never mean or hateul... like a couple of those familes... and they were talking to their PARENTS!

    And yes, they did make snide remarks about the Weavers (as did all the teams) AFTER the Weavers were brazen enough to tell them how they felt about THEM (and a few other teams in the process).

    The Weavers made enemies of every team in the race. They were simpering competitors who felt the race should have been handed to them because they are Christians and blatently stated that none of the other teams were. They were happy as clams when they were leading, but bitter complainers when they were not... constantly complaining about how "unfair" it was and "nobody likes us". Boo hoo.

    I honestly can't understand how two people can have such different feelings after watching the same program. Wow!
