NEW YORK -- At one point during the sixth season of CBS's ''The Amazing Race," Freddy Holliday screamed to the remaining teams, ''One of you I will break in half!" Well, he didn't break anybody in half, but Holliday and fiancee Kendra Bentley did outrace the competition, winning the reality TV show's $1 million prize.
''It's the best feeling in the world. It's unbelievable," Bentley said following Tuesday night's episode.
Holliday, 34, and Bentley, 25, both from Miami, were surrounded by friends, family, host Phil Keoghan, and ''Amazing Race" peers for the show's finale. One of the engaged-model team's driving forces in winning the race was its ''model alliance" with dating-actor team Hayden Kristianson, 25, and Aaron Crumbaugh, 25, who finished in fourth place.
One of the most stressful moments for Holliday occurred when a pivoting gate at the Heritage Rail Museum in Budapest, Hungary, knocked him in the face. Holliday accused the other teams of pulling the metal gate down on him. That's when he issued his threat.
Long-distance dating couple -- who are no longer long distance -- Kris Perkins, 30, and Jon Buehler, 29, placed second, while third place went to formerly dating couple Adam Malis, 27, and Rebecca Cardon, 29, from Los Angeles.
ABC plans movie about Trump
ABC is bringing the story of Donald Trump to the small screen. The network has given the go-ahead to an unauthorized movie about the real estate mogul, who is enjoying something of a career and popularity resurgence in his role as host of NBC's hit series ''The Apprentice."
''Donald Trump is the American version of royalty," said Quinn Taylor, senior vice president of movies and miniseries at ABC. ''He's probably one of the most fascinating and intriguing men certainly of my generation who has continually kept himself at the top of his game. That he was able to do it is worth exploring."
Trump will not be involved in the as-yet-untitled project, which is based on Gwenda Blair's business-oriented book ''The Trumps: Three Generations That Built an Empire."
Taylor added that the movie will cover the past 25 years or so in Trump's life, but will not include details on ''Apprentice," which airs on a competing network.
