So where will Cody and Jess go from here? Will they star on yet another CBS reality show or will they settle down out of the spotlight? We'll see if they'll follow the examples of the Amazing Race's past victors. Check out some of those teams' post-Race trajectories below.
Season 1: Rob Frisbee and Brennan Swain
As of 2014, the show's original winners were still friends and big fans of the show. Rob has maintained his law career while writing for film and TV on the side. And Brennan is an attorney who spends his free time traveling the world, having toured more than 20 new countries since his time on the show.
Season 7: Uchenna Agu and Joyce Agu
This duo divorced after The Amazing Race, but in 2014 they told Entertainment Weekly they were "still great friends." In addition to their charitable work, Joyce has been writing a memoir, and Uchenna has been working in TV and digital advertising.
Season 15: Meghan Rickey and Cheyne Whitney
This couple has married and settled down in San Diego, with Cheyne coaching youth baseball and Meghan serving as creative director of a photography company. They made a goal to visit 50 countries by the time they turned 30, which another season of The Amazing Race definitely would have helped fulfill. "Of course, we are patiently waiting for CBS to call us about an all-winners season," Meghan told EW.
Season 19: Ernie Halvorsen and Cindy Chiang
After their time on the race, these lovebirds made good on their engagement and got married. But they've also started a family, welcoming son Maverick Zhang Halvorsen in 2014. As for their professions, they've invested in a charitable fabric company called Thread International, which was founded by Survivor alum Ian Rosenberger.
Season 21: Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge
After their big win, these "Fabulous Beekman Boys" used their winnings to pay off the mortgage on their farm, reinvent their Beekman 1802 company, and get married at home in June 2013. Lately, the hubbies have been working with SUNY Cobleskill — with Brent joining the faculty as an adjunct marketing professor — and donating to other small farms. "We hope to be able to give back many thousands more this year and change other farmers' lives just as The Amazing Race changed ours," they told EW in 2014.
Season 26: Laura Pierson and Tyler Adams
Laura told Wonderwall she took three days off after the race to chill out and reconnect with friends and family and then "went right back to the hustle and bustle of live TV" as a senior producer of the Hallmark Channel morning show Home and Family. She ended up not dating Tyler, an entrepreneur who recently launched PainScale, a mobile app for chronic pain patients. But hey, at least they'll always appreciate each other for their Amazing teamwork.
