Quixote Studios - Spanning 4 continents, 10 countries, and over 32,000 miles, three teams raced to the finish line on the 17th season finale of 'The Amazing Race' Sunday night.

Doctors and friends Nat Strand and Kat Chang came from behind at the beginning of the final leg to win The Amazing Race. They beat out dating couple Jill Haney/Thomas Wolfard and home shopping hosts Brook Roberts/Claire Champlin to claim the million dollar prize. Strand and Chang are the first all-female team to win the Race.

The final leg began in Seoul, South Korea. Teams departed for Los Angeles on the same flight. Nat had to confront her fear of heights as each team had to complete a bungee swing from a crane at the port in Long Beach. The teams then took a helicopter ride to a mystery destination, which turned out to be the Rose Bowl stadium. There, the Road Block required one team member to complete three sections of a Rose Bowl Parade float. Nat, Thomas, and Brook took on the task. Nat finished first and received a clue with three trivia questions where the answers would inform the teams of their next destination.

The doctors were the first to figure out that they needed to go to Studio 7 at Quixote Studios. In the final challenge, the teams had to correctly identify the 11 greeters from each leg in the correct order from a flashing game show board where Bob Eubanks served as host. Brook and Claire headed straight to a hotel with internet and were able to figure out the clues quickly. Jill and Thomas struggled to find anyone who could understand what they meant when they asked for "internet."

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
