No More Fun For ‘Amazing Race’ Team From Colorado

DENVER (CBS4) – Two Coloradans who were in the running for the $1 million grand prize on the CBS reality show “The Amazing Race” ran into a hurdle that was too hard to overcome in a new episode that aired Thursday night.

Floyd Pierce and Becca Droz of Team Fun were eliminated from the competition during a bicycle challenge in Vietnam after Pierce suffered from heat exhaustion. Medical staff helped him out after he complained of dizziness and the team wound up being unable to complete the task.

The team was known on the show for their relentlessly upbeat attitudes, and they retained that jovial spirit to the end. Their performance is one that made Colorado proud.

“Positivity makes you stronger,” said Droz in an appearance on CBS4 News at Noon on Thursday with Pierce to talk about the show.

“The whole cast was really close, actually,” Pierce said. “We all have this secret (of who won) we’ve had to keep together for a year so it kind of makes you close.”

Matt Ladley, another Colorado competitor on the team named “The Boys,” is still in the running to win the grand prize. Don’t miss the next episode of “Amazing Race 29” Thursday at 9 p.m. on CBS4.

The season finale airs June 1.

  1. We are very proud of you both you really were amazing kind and true to yourself. I would hope you remain friends always and maybe given the chance to try again.

    I loved watching you both and am majorly bummed that you couldn’t complete the leg. Sometimes things happen that you have no control over. I hope the Race invites you back and that you both can do it. We all want to see more of you!!!
