It is with great sadness to report that Margaretta Groark from season 1 of The Amazing Race has passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer.
Margaretta raced with her husband Dave and were the oldest couple in the Race. They were they 4th team eliminated when they arrived last at the Pit Stop in Tunisia.
One of the most memorable moments came in the very first leg of The Amazing Race when Dave & Margaretta went head to head against Rob & Brennan for the Fast Forward through the steep slopes along the Zambezi River at Victoria Falls in Zambia. They lost the Fast Forward and had to backtrack, but still eventually arrived 7th at the Pit Stop.
It was their fighting spirit and warm personalities that have made them one of the most well-loved teams in Amazing Race history.
Our thoughts and prayers are with their family and may she rest in peace.
Here is the video of their final Road Block before being eliminated:
