NEW YORK - It's been an "Amazing Race" indeed for Nick and Starr Spangler.

The brother-and-sister team took first place and the reality show's $1 million prize in the finale aired Sunday on CBS.

The duo charged through the last leg of the global race in Portland, Ore. They balanced on a beam high in the air, descended a zip line from 2,000 feet and solved a complex puzzle.

They then searched throughout the city for clues to where the finish line was before frantically hailing a taxi to it.

After crossing it, the siblings hugged. Starr Spangler told her brother: "You're my best friend. I love you."

Nick Spangler, 22, said he was proud of his sister, who is a year younger.

"She's been unbelievable on this race," he said. "More than $1 million, more than being the winners of 'The Amazing Race,' I love the experience that I've gone through with my sister, and I've loved seeing her succeed so greatly."

A married but separated couple, Ken and Tina Greene, finished a close second. They cried as they put their wedding rings back on.

"Let's start this thing over again, and we'll do it right this time," said Ken Greene, a former pro football player.

In the 13th season of "The Amazing Race," contestants logged nearly 40,000 miles on a trip that took them through Brazil, Bolivia, New Zealand, Cambodia, India, Kazakhstan and Russia.
