Will and James were the first to cross the finish line and were declared winners.
All about ‘The Amazing Race’ Season 32
The adventure reality game show series first premiered in 2000 and has been loved across the globe. ‘The Amazing Race’ Season 32 featured teams who represented the qualities of leadership and unity despite being a scripted reality series. Their ability to embrace any challenges that came their way and the travel leg has been regarded as the reason behind the show’s success!
A myriad of physical challenges awaited each team that participated in the game show! The series premiered in October 2020, and the first leg was filmed on the island of Tobago and continued in countries such as France, Germany, Cambodia among several others.
The season’s winners, Will and James, celebrated their engagement at the end, becoming the fifth team in the show’s history to do so. They were, however, the second winning couple to do so on the finishing mat, since Ken and Tina from season 13. Not many people know that Will Jardell was actually the runner-up on cycle 21 of ‘America’s Next Top Model’!

The season ended on a high note, with television’s favourite new reality couple, Will and James, winning $1 million and a surprise engagement! After the season premiered, the winners shared their victory with “Parade.com”, in a special interview.
Sharing the reason behind his decision to propose at the end, Will Jardell shared: “We had talked about getting engaged before the race even started.” He added,
“So going into the race I thought, ‘This would be cool’. I had two other instances where I would have proposed. It would be either when we were eliminated, or if we were in a country we had been to before.”
The reality television star concluded,
“That happened with the Philippines, but that leg was not great at all. So knowing we were going to the finish line, I was like, ‘Regardless of what place we get, I’m going to propose’. This is James’ dream, and it would be a great moment to start the next chapter of our lives”
When can viewers expect season 33 to release?
‘The Amazing Race’ Season 32 concluded in December 2020 and was immediately renewed for the 33rd season. The new series had already begun filming, but production was forced to halt due to restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The reality series largely depends on travelling to multiple countries, with contestants following a trail of clues and activities there. As for when the show might be able to resume production, online sources report that the dates fluctuate depending on the shape of the curve.
Luckily for CBS, even though season 33 has been forced to halt shooting after a few episodes, season 32 saved the day! The series was filmed in late 2018 and was unable to air due to the unavailability of an open premiere slot. Eventually, it aired two full years after being filmed, but fans didn’t complain as they had some of the best contestants to keep them entertained!
