List RulesVote up the most impressive Amazing Race teams to come in first.

It takes a team of multitalented players to secure a win on The Amazing Race as the reality show requires more than just sheer physical skill to win. The best Amazing Race winners must also decipher clues, interact with locals in new locations, and navigate unfamiliar terrain to complete each leg of the journey to victory. Part of the reason the long running series has received so much critical acclaim and gained a large fan following is that the contestants are genuinely inspiring. While all contenders deserve a round of applause, which teams truly stand out? Here, you can help decide. 

Across all Amazing Race seasons, there have been some unforgettable and inspiring teams. In Season 24, the father and son team Dave and Connor O'Leary secured the win. They made for a particularly inspiring team, given both were cancer survivors. Best friends B.J. Averell and Tyler MacNiven, Season 9 winners, delighted audiences with their positive attitude. In Season 17, Nat Strand and Kat Chang became the first female team to win the competition. 

Out of all the past Amazing Race winners, which teams were the most impressive? Vote up the best teams below.
