"Father/Son" Michael and Kevin Wu Avoid Elimination on "The Amazing Race 17"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 17" father/son duo Michael and Kevin Wu avoided elimination despite arriving last on this leg's Pit Stop. The episode began with the nine remaining teams continuing to race in Ghana. Their first task was the Roadblock, where one team member had to perform a boxing workout routine. After that, the teams were instructed to transport two wheelbarrows full of building supplies to a local school. Once there the teams had to join a classroom and attempt to locate Ghana on a map of Africa. Their final task was a Detour, which was a choice between rolling a bicycle wheel across a field using only a stick or decoding a proverb and locating it on a large wall of symbols. Many teams switched from the proverb task to the wheel task because they couldn't find the key to decode the proverb. A Capella singers Connor and Johnathan arrived at the Pit Stop first and were awarded $5,000 each. During the wheel task Michael started to suffer from heat exhaustion, causing him and Kevin to plummet to last place. Thankfully, when they checked into the Pit Stop Phil informed them it was a non-elimination leg and they were still in the race.

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