"Long Distance Couple" Aja and Ty Eliminated from "Amazing Race 13"
Aja and Ty became the fifth couple eliminated from "The Amazing Race 13" on Sunday's episode. The show started with the seven remaining teams leaving Auckland, New Zealand and flying 5,600 miles to Siem Reap, Cambodia. Once there the teams had to use a hand pump to fill a truck with 25 liters of fuel. When the task was completed they were instructed to ride on the back of the trucks to Siem Reap Harbor. Located there was Kho Andeth, a floating restaurant and the site of the Detour. The choice was between picking up three items in a floating village or searching through waist deep water for two traps of fish and transferring them to baskets. The next instructions were to Angkor Wat, an ancient temple where the Roadblock was located. The task was to search the grounds for the "Chamber of Echoes" room and thump their chest to receive their final clue. Nick and Starr finished first and arrived at Bayon Temple, the Pit Stop, awarding them a trip to St. John in the Virgin Islands. Arriving in last place was Aja and Ty and Phil informed them they were eliminated. He also said that Terrence and Sarah will have a 30 minute time penalty at the start of the next leg for a speeding ticket they got earlier. We'll see if that affects the race next week, when "The Amazing Race" continues.
