"Geeks" Mark and Bill Eliminated from "Amazing Race 13"
Tonight on a new episode of "The Amazing Race 13" geeks and best friends Mark and Bill became the third team eliminated from the race. The show began with the nine remaining teams leaving Fortaleza, Brazil and heading to La Paz, Bolivia. In Bolivia the slower teams caught up to the faster teams when they all had to spend the night by a statue of Simon Bolivar awaiting newspapers to be delivered the next morning. When the papers were dropped off the teams searched through the classifieds for their next clue, which instructed them to go to a hat shop. Waiting there was a Detour, which was a choice of leading a marching band through the city or riding a wooden bike down a cobblestone road. Mark and Bill chose the bikes but took a taxi there, when the clue specifically said to travel on foot. When the task was completed each team had the choice of using a U-Turn on another team, but no one took advantage of it. Next up was the Roadblock which had one member of each team learning six wrestling moves they had to use against a female wrestler. Ken and Tina finished first and arrived at the pit stop before anyone else earning them a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Mark and Bill arrived in eighth place but were given a thirty minute penalty for breaking the rules. During those thirty minutes Kelly and Christy arrived thinking they were in last place. Mark and Bill were then checked in and told that they were eliminated. Only eight teams remain, who will be eliminated next?
