"Detectives" Louie Stravato & Michael Naylor Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 16"

On tonight's penultimate leg of "The Amazing Race 16" detectives Louie and Michael became the eighth team eliminated from the show. The episode began with the final four teams continuing to race in Shanghai. The first task awaiting the teams was the Roadblock, where one teammate had to count all the golden statutes in Longhua Temple. Louie and Michael, however, first had to complete their Speed Bump, which was tossing a coin into an incense burner. When the Roadblock was completed the teams took a motorcycle to Yuyuan Garden, where they faced a Detour. The choice was between searching amongst hundreds of stone stamps for two marked with their names or delivering ten orders of soup dumplings across a market. Brent and Caite were the first team to finish all the tasks and checked into the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to Spain. Louie and Michael arrived last, causing them to fall one leg short of the final. That means Brent and Caite, Jet and Cord and Dan and Jordan are the three teams racing for the million dollar prize, which confirms my spoiler boot list posted three months ago.

Here's the final Elimination Station...

Why oh why did they not think about why the brothers were still there after 2 hours until they started their leg?? The brothers were clueless and made Louie and Mike figure it all out!! DUH!They really should have ditched those brothers!!

Glad the keystone cops are gone. They always got lost, had the most difficult time solving puzzles and had tunnel vision.
