Harlem Globetrotters Flight Time & Big Easy Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 15"

On yesterday's penultimate "Amazing Race 15" Harlem Globetrotters Flight Time and Big Easy became the tenth team to be eliminated. The four pairs continued to race in Prague, this time in the middle of the night. Big Easy got stuck on the first task when he couldn't come up with the mystery word to complete the Roadblock. They ended up taking a four hour penalty, which allowed the other teams to overpass them. It even let Brian and Ericka catch up after doing their Speed Bump task. Even though some teams had problems with the Detour, like Sam and Dan who bickered constantly, everyone was able to check in at the Pit Stop before the Globetrotters finished their penalty. As dawn rose by the Charles Bridge Phil told the duo that they were eliminated. Now the final three teams will race to the Finish Line in Las Vegas on next week's season finale. Who will win the million dollars - Megan & Cheyne, Sam & Dan or Brian & Ericka? Tune in Sunday to find out!

"Married Couple" Brian and Ericka Avoid Elimination on "The Amazing Race 15"

On yesterday's "Amazing Race 15" married couple Brian and Ericka avoided elimination despite arriving last at this leg's Pit Stop.

During the Detour they had bad luck again when brothers Sam and Dan stole their waiting taxi. They were the last to find a mini musical instrument in an opera house at the Roadblock which finally made them check in last at the Pit Stop. However, because it was a non-elimination leg all they got was a Speed Bump task for next week. Will they overcome it or will they fall short of the final three? Tune in Sunday to find out!

Laura Morett Voted Off "Survivor: Samoa"

On yesterday's "Survivor: Samoa" Laura Morett was voted out and became the third member of the jury. Because Russell played his idol last week, the castaways started searching for the new idol and sure enough Russell found it without any clues. At the immunity challenge Mick won immunity, which finally put Laura in harm's way. At tribal council Shambo voted with the Galu members making it a 5-5 tie between Laura and Natalie. During the re-vote John decided not to put himself on the chopping block and also switched sides voting out Laura. With Shambo, John and Russell's hidden idol all on Galu's side, is there any hope for the three remaining Foa Foa members? We'll have to wait two weeks to find out, because Thanksgiving's episode is a recap show.

"Father and Son" Matt and Gary Avoid Elimination on "Amazing Race 15"

On yesterday's "Amazing Race 15" father and son Matt & Gary Tomljenovich avoided elimination despite arriving last at this leg's Pit Stop. The teams flew from The Netherlands to Stockholm, Sweden where they rode on amusement park rides and blew stuff up with dynamite. But that was nothing compared to this leg's Roadblock which was a recreation of the classic "needle in the haystack" task from season six. Once again teams broke down as they pushed massive bales of hay around a farm for hours on end. Matt & Gary were the last team to complete the challenge, but were not sent home as this was the second non-elimination leg. Will next week's Speed Bump task hinder their progress?

"Pro Poker Players" Maria and Tiffany Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 15"

On yesterday's "Amazing Race 15" professional poker players Maria Ho and Tiffany Michelle were eliminated from the race. The teams finally left Dubai and flew to The Netherlands where Brian and Ericka quickly fell behind. The gap widened even more when Ericka had trouble counting bells in the Roadblock. However, Maria and Tiffany also encountered problems when they couldn't complete either of the two Detour tasks. They kept switching back and forth allowing Brian and Ericka to catch up. Even though Brian and Ericka were given a 30 minute penalty for breaking a rule they still were able to check in at the Pit Stop, something the poker players couldn't do. Thus, Phil informed them that they were eliminated. Next week the remaining five teams travel to Stockholm, Sweden and are faced with one of the toughest tasks in "Amazing Race" history: the needle in the haystack. Tune in next Sunday for all the action.
