"Best Friends" Ron & Tony the First Team Eliminated on "The Amazing Race 17"

On tonight's season premiere of "The Amazing Race 17" best friends Ron Kellum and Tony Stovall became the first team eliminated from the race. The season began with the eleven new teams arriving in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Before the teams received their first clue Phil informed them of a new twist in the game. The team that arrived first on this leg would be awarded the "Express Pass" which will allow them to skip any one task of their choice up to leg eight. With that, Phil started the race and the teams learned their first destination was London, England. The first three teams to get to the airport got an earlier flight and a half hour advantage. When they landed in England the teams were instructed to make their way to Stonehenge. Once there, they had to decipher a clue that led them to Eastnor Castle. At the castle the teams had to climb a ladder while peasants poured dirty water on them. They then had to cross the moat on a small boat without capsizing. Their final challenge was a Roadblock, where one team member had to use a slingshot to launch a watermelon and knock over a suit of armor. Brook and Claire were one of the first teams to arrive at the Roadblock, but suffered a setback when one of the watermelons flung back and smashed Claire in the face. Jill and Thomas were the first team to complete all the tasks and arrived at the Pit Stop first, earning them the "Express Pass". Ron and Tony weren't so lucky as they arrived last and were eliminated from the race.
