"Dating Couple" Amanda and Kris Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 14"

On Sunday's new "Amazing Race 14" dating couple Amanda Blackledge and Kris Klicka became the fourth team eliminated. The show started with the eight remaining teams leaving Transylvania and flying through Moscow to Siberia. Only three teams caught the early flight from Moscow to Siberia giving them an advantage. When they landed they were instructed to a hydroelectric dam where a Detour awaited them. The choice was between stacking wood to form a big wall or assembling shutters and finding the house to install them on. Many teams had trouble stacking the wood and switched to building the shutters. When the task was done the teams were faced with a Blind U-Turn where they could force a team to complete both tasks while remaining anonymous. Mother/Son Duo Margie and Luke used the U-Turn on Amanda and Kris, making them fall way behind. Next up was the Roadblock at Bobrovy Log Park where one team member had to ride a bobsled course while looking for letters that, when unscrambled, spelled the name of a Russian playwright. Friends Christie and Jodi completed the task first and also arrived first at the Pit Stop, the Theater of Musical Comedy, where they were each awarded a motorcycle. Amanda and Kris couldn't overcome having to do both tasks and they arrived last, eliminating them from the race. Only seven teams remain, who will leave next?
