"A Cappella Singers" Connor and Jonathan Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 17"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 17" Ivy League A Cappella singers Connor Yauman and Jonathan Schwartz became the third team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the remaining nine teams flying from Ghana to Sweden with a layover in Germany. Because of the long trip, all teams were given tickets on the same flight but were not required to use them. Michael & Kevin, Gary & Mallory, Nat & Kat and Brook & Claire found an earlier connecting flight from Germany to Sweden and arrived two hours ahead of the five other teams. When they landed they traveled to the Icehotel where Michael & Kevin's Speed Bump awaited them. The guys had to sit on chairs made of ice for ten minutes before they could continue on the race. The team's next clue instructed them to Fjellborg's Lodge where they faced a Roadblock. One team member had to ride a dog sled through a course, collecting five flags along the way. When they completed the task the teams made their way to a nearby train station where they found a Detour. The choice of tasks was between riding down a mountain on a snowmobile in under a minute and fifty eight seconds or building a traditional Swedish tent called a goahti and furnishing the inside with furs and a fire pit. Nat & Kat were the first team to complete all the tasks and made it to the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to Belize. Jill and Thomas decided to use their Express Pass, skipping the Detour and landing in fifth place. Connor and Jonathan, however, landed at the bottom and were eliminated from the race.
