Amazing Race 34 kicked off on CBS on 21 September 2022 with 12 couples in Munich, Germany, making history that over the past 33 seasons this is the first time the show has started outside the United States. Among the contestants is the couple Luis Colon and Michelle Burgos, looking to start the next chapter of their married life by dancing their way across the globe with The Amazing Race.
Luis Colon On Amazing Race 34
Luis Colon could finally talk about going to Amazing Race in August 2022. Before this, they had been holding it a secret for a few months. Some of their followers already had noticed their absence on social media, but no one knew that they were busy racing around the world.
So far in The Amazing Race 34, we saw Episode 1 titled “Many Firsts But Don’t Be Last” eliminate Aastha Lal and Nina Duong only, a newly engaged couple from Marina Del Ray, California. So, Luis Colon and his wife stayed behind to compete for the $1 million grand prize with the others.
On the season’s premiere, the teams were challenged with tasks such as rolling a keg of beer through a series of obstacles, sawing through a log in order to get a clue, and smashing through a huge block of ice with a chisel. The last team to complete their tasks and meet Phil at Munich’s Friedensengal monument was the first team to go home.
Their goal is to “enjoy” the experience rather than “attacking” it, but how far will that get them in the competition?
Michelle Burgos And Luis Colon’s Relationship
Luis Colon believes that his wife is amazing and among other things, he finds himself lucky also because his wife knows how to take pics and edit them.
They got married on January 3rd, 2016 in what they now call an “amazing wedding”. They exchanged later about how it went by. It had started raining 5 min before the ceremony was supposed to start and it was an outside venue. But even that did not get them down at all. Instead, they were thankful to have all their friends and family in one place together. Also, it helped when the weather cleared about 45 min after.
Before this, the couple had gotten engaged as much flawlessly in Viscaya Miami.
As for when it all started, they met each other 13 years ago in 2009. Known among their friends and family as “the crazy couple” they found love between wanting to have a good time, enjoy dancing, and traveling together.
