Sadly, only three winners in the history of the series have been minorities. Korean investment manager, Jun Song, claimed the crown in Season 4, Latino and Cuban salesman, Josh Martinez, walked away with the prize money in Season 19, and Filipina pro football player, Kaycee Clark, came out on top in Season 20.

Though Season 1 winner Eddie McGee is white, he is remembered as the only amputee to ever play the game (the New York native lost his left leg to cancer when he was 11).
