Darren McMullen makes generous gesture in Amazing Race finale

This may be a world first.

Last night in The Amazing Race Australia: Celebrity, Darren McMullen and nephew Tristan reached the finish mat first -but chose to wait for the remaining two teams to all hit the mat together and share the $100,000 prize.

It was a generous gesture from McMullen to ensure three charities would take home cash winnings.

After a gruelling final leg of the Race in Kuala Lumpur, Darren and Tristan reached the mat first, but before jumping on the mat, Darren told host Beau Ryan that they had decided to wait for the other two teams so all three charities could have a share of the prize. Aww.

That meant waiting for Singer Alli Simpson and mum Angie, former Wiggle Emma Watson and sister Hayley. Linked arm in arm, all three teams hit the mat at the same time, which saw all three teams win, and the flood gate of tears open.

Ultimately, a nice way to end what is often a fierce competition.

This season has performed well for 10 and has been given a renewal for 2024.
