The finale episode of the Amazing Race season 17 aired last night and for the first time in the show’s history, an all female team won the competition.

Those history making ladies are Doctors Nat Strand, 31, and Kat Chang, 35. Nat and Kat beat out Brook Roberts and Claire Champlin and dating couple Thomas Wolfard and Jill Haney to win the $1 million prize.

During the one hour finale, the three teams had to bungee jump off a giant crane at the Port of Long Beach, decorate a float for the Tournament of Roses parade, and play a trivia contest with veteran game-show host Bob Eubanks.

And also for the first time in the show’s history, the race ended in Los Angeles. “It’s hard to believe, but this is the first time in our series history that we’ve ended the race in Los Angeles. Nothing like maneuvering your way to the finish line through L.A. traffic,” host Phil Keoghan told PEOPLE. “We have one challenge where teams literally have to face their fears and phobias in order to avoid choking with $1 million on the line.”

For this season, the finalists covered four continents, 30 cities and 32,000 miles. “This experience has totally bonded us, and no one will ever understand what we went through except these people,” said Kat to Nat. “You really are my sister, and this is something we’ll share for the rest of our lives,” she added.

The biggest surprise of the night however came in the form of Phil announcing the next season of TAR will be an all-star season! Even better, runners-up Brook and Claire, will be competing in the all-star edition. Other “fan-favorite” teams will include Cowboys Jet and Cord and goth faves Kynt and Vixsin.

The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business” will premiere Sunday, Feb. 20, 2011 on CBS.
