Where in the world are Karlyn Harris and Lyn Turk? The pair competed against 11 teams in a 40,000-mile, 13-country quest for $1 million on “The Amazing Race.” In its 10th edition, the CBS show had its first Alabama team — both are from the Birmingham area.

The duo made show history as the first all-female team to complete the entire race.

Wade on Birmingham provided full coverage of the reality competition, which aired in fall 2006.
