"Dating Couple" Preston and Jennifer Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 14"
Last night Preston McCamy and Jennifer Hopka became the first couple eliminated from "The Amazing Race 14". The new season began with all eleven teams starting the race at Joint Forces Training Base in Los Alamitos, California. On Phil's signal the race started and the teams read their first clue. They were given the choice of two flights: one to Zurich and one to Milan. Once they arrived they had to travel by train to Locarno, Switzerland where they would receive their next clue at the Church of San Antonio. Flight Attendants Christie and Jodi were the first to arrive and were given the earliest of three departure times the next morning. After a night of rest at a campsite the teams were told to take a taxi to the Verzasca Dam where the first Roadblock awaited them. One member of each team had to do a 70 story bungee jump from the dam. After completing the task the teams were instructed to Kleine Rugen Wiese in the city of Interlaken. Father and Son Mike and Mel arrived first and received a clue saying each team had to transport 200 pounds of cheese down a slippery hill using antique cheese racks. Mother and Son Margie and Luke completed the task first and were also the first team to arrive in Stechelberg, the Pit Stop for this leg of the race, earning them a trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Preston and Jennifer were not so lucky as they came in last, eliminating them from the race. Now ten teams remain, who will be eliminated next?
