"Sisters" LaKisha and Jennifer Hoffman Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 14"
On yesterday's "Amazing Race 14" sisters LaKisha and Jennifer Hoffman became the eighth team eliminated from the show. The episode began where last week left off - with Phil giving all four teams a new clue which instructed them to a street mall where they had to search for a Travelocity roaming gnome. Once they found a gnome, they were told to board motorized bicycles and ride across Tianimann Square to the Dongdan subway station where a Detour awaited them. The choice was between painting each others faces like Chinese characters or taking the orders of a table of Mandarin speaking diners. Victor and Tammy, who speak Mandarin, were the only team to choose the waiter task. When they completed it, they were confronted by the second and final U-Turn of the season. Victor and Tammy decided to use the U-Turn on LaKisha and Jennifer which forced the sisters to complete both Detour tasks. Next up the teams traveled to a street market where they found a Roadblock. One team member had to eat a full plate of Chinese delicacies - grasshoppers, beetle larvae, scorpion and starfish. Victor and Tammy finished first and made their way to the Pit Stop, the "Eagle's Nest" Olympic stadium. When they arrived they were awarded with a trip for two to the Galapagos Islands. LaKisha & Jennifer and Cara & Jaime were neck and neck at the Roadblock, but a stop to pee by Jennifer caused the cheerleaders to take the lead. Thus, LaKisha and Jen arrived last and were eliminated. Next week the final three teams race for the Finish Line on the season finale! Which pair will take home the $1 million? Tune in Sunday at 8pm to find out!
