Huntington Beach couple win Amazing Race
If you have't heard, Huntington Beach locals Rachel Rosales and TK Erwin won CBS’ The Amazing Race 12 on January 20. The young couple is now one million dollars richer. After winning the race, a shocked Rosales sputtered out, “I can't even believe it ... I'm really speechless." Her boyfriend and winning partner, TK Erwin, told host Phil Keoghan, "None of this even seems real. It's kind of freaking me out." In her real life, Rachel, 23 years old, is a business owner and florist here in town. TK, 22, works as a substitute teacher. The two had been dating for less than a year before entering The Amazing Race 12. After crossing the finish line in Anchorage, AK and claiming the prize money, Erwin said, “This whole things was such a crazy roller coaster with so many ups and downs. To do it with Rachel, I think our relationship has only grown through this whole thing. And for that, that's more important than any of this for me." Congratulations of our locals!
