Expect to see two shiny new Ford Escapes on area streets soon. That’s because Drew and Derek Konzelman won NBC’s and Ford Motor Company’s “Escape Routes” Saturday night, earning them $100,000 and their own Ford Escapes.
“I just won a hundred thousand dollars and a new car!!,” Drew tweeted.
Derek, 24, manages Puyallup’s Anthem Coffee and Tea. Drew, 27, lives in Kirkland and works as a musician.
“Escape Routes” was an hour-long, point-based reality competition series which had teams visiting six cities over 42 days in 2013 Ford Escapes.
“Escape Routes” was highly interactive. The show heavily incorporated social media. The teams worked with online fans on some challenges and tasks in order to win prizes for themselves and their followers.
A challenge during their Miami stay involved catching and transporting alligators and snakes in the Everglades.
The brothers totaled 790 points, just 15 more than the second- and third-place finishers, and had 4,281 fans.
The show visited six cities: Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Miami, San Francisco, and in Saturday's final show, Las Vegas. The teams used the Escapes to travel from wherever they were staying to the challenge sites.
Drew and Derek are two of five brothers who, along with their parents, make up the Konzelman Family Band. The musicians have toured the nation.
