[SPOILER ALERT: The following story reveals the winners of The Amazing Race 21. Read at your own risk.]

After clocking in more than 25,000 miles in eight countries, couple Trey and Lexi, Chippendales Jaymes and James, twins Natalie and Nadiya, and The Fabulous Beekman Boys' Josh and Brent - face off in the final two legs for the $1 million on The Amazing Race 21.

Fall TV Report Card: How's the new class doing?

The final four travel from Mallorca, Spain, to Loire Valley, France, where they pick up eight empty crates and drive to Chateau de Villandry. The clue there tells them to find Leonardo Da Vinci's final resting place, Chateau d'Amboise, but the twins have to stay behind to do their Speed Bump (lace up a corset), so they beg the Chippendales and Trey and Lexi to lose the Beekmans. They do the task quickly and make up some ground on the road.

The Detour follows: make a meal for dogs or use a horse and plow to till a field. Trey and Lexi initially choose dog food, and the Chippendales do the plow, while the Beekmans and the twins do the dog food. Trey and Lexi finish first and head to the Roadblock at La Cave des Roches, where teams have to use the crates they picked up earlier to collect mushrooms in a cave. Lexi completes it before Jaymes, but the Chippendales beat her and Trey to the Pit Stop. Natalie finishes the Roadblock before Brent, but the twins go the wrong way and the Beekmans nab the last spot in the final three.

The final three fly off to New York City, where they must go to Coney Island. The clue there is on the Amazing Houdini boardwalk sign, which directs them to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Trey and Lexi see it first, followed by the Beekmans and the Chippendales. The clue at the yard is a Roadblock: escape from a straitjacket Houdini-style while suspended 15 stories high. Trey completes it, and he and Lexi go to the first pizzeria in the U.S., Lombardi's, where they have to deliver three orders. Brent finishes the Roadblock next, followed by Jaymes.

Trey and Lexi finish the pizza delivery first and head to the United Nations headquarters as the Chippendales arrive to Lombardi's. The Beekmans mess up two orders and redo them before the Chippendales finish. At the U.N., it's another Roadblock: match the words for "hello" and "goodbye" with the countries they visited on the Race. No one picked up on the greetings all Race and everyone struggles, but Josh eventually finishes first, followed by James, while Lexi has a breakdown.

The finish line is at Gotham Hall, and the Beekmans get there first and win the $1 million. The Chippendales are second, and Trey and Lexi are third.

"We hope [our win] proves to all the underdogs out there that it doesn't matter how bad things are going - you just can't quit," Josh says. "Nice guys do finish first sometimes."

Amazing Race's Abbie and Ryan: Flight connection drama was "bizarre"

The Beekmans join Season 11's Eric and Danielle, and Season 18's Kisha and Jen as the only teams who've won the whole Race without winning a leg all season. They also have the lowest average placement for a winning team - their highest finish before the finale was third.

What do you think of the finale? Are Josh and Brent deserving winners?
