Justin, Zev finish CBS’ Amazing Race

Zev and Justin

It’s no longer “Unfinished Business” for one of the most engaging race teams in the history of the show. Undone by the samba and bikinis, Zev Glassenberg made TV history as the first contestant with Asperger Syndrome to take on the always grueling yet fantastically adventurous race around the world. The team challenge is replete with trials, chores, roadblocks and puzzles that test the mettle of the mightiest and bring some of the smartest to tears. Yet friends Justin Kanew and Zev cheerfully stuck out each leg of the race determined to make good on a second chance to win a million dollars — and avoid the mistakes of last season that torpedoed their earlier efforts. Zev deserves special recognition for shining a positive light on Asperger’s and helping the world grow in its understanding of it..

  1. Zev and fellow traveler Justin were awesome. As amazing as Zev’s performance was Justin’s patience, love and encouragement of his autistic friend. We should all have such great friendships. Zev, thank you. You’ve raised the Expectation Bar for Asperger folks around the world–AMAZING!
