Luke, who received a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from RIT/NTID in 2008, became the first deaf contestant on the show when he and his mother raced around the world in season 14, which aired in 2009. He and his mother made the finals that season and came in third place.

The race was taped in November and December and contestants have been sworn to secrecy about the outcome. Read more about Luke, who was named Deaf Person of the Year in 2009 by Deaf Life magazine.
