"Dating Couple" Nick and Vicki Avoid Elimination on "The Amazing Race 17"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 17" dating couple Nick DeCarlo and Vicki Casciola avoided elimination despite arriving last on this leg's Pit Stop. The episode began with the seven remaining teams flying from Narvik, Norway to Saint Petersburg, Russia where a Detour awaited. The choice of tasks was between identifying three unique music compositions in a hall full of pianists playing various songs or searching through hundreds of filmstrips for the one that matched the movie playing on the screen. Many teams switched from the music task to the film task after having no luck identifying the correct songs. When the teams completed the Detour they headed to Palace Square, where their next clue instructed them to a neighborhood store and a Roadblock. One team member had to dress up as a babushka, find a wheelbarrow and then plant 50 potatoes using dirt and cow manure. Jill and Thomas were the first team to complete the task and made it to the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to Sao Paolo, Brazil. Nick & Vicki fell way behind and arrived at the Pit Stop last, but were only given a Speed Bump since it was a non-elimination leg.

Here's this week's Elimination Station...
