"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 final four teams flying from Dhaka, Bangladesh to Hong Kong, China. When they arrived they were instructed to take a ferry to Cheung Chau island where their next clue awaited. Nick and Vicki missed the first ferry and fell 30 minutes behind the other teams. The next clue instructed the teams to Majesty Chinese restaurant where a Roadblock awaited. One teammate had to search among several plates of food for one of five pieces of fake food. If the team member picked a piece of real food they had to eat that item. When the task was completed teams made their way to the Avenue of Stars and had to find a Bruce Lee statue. When they found it they also found a Detour. The choice of tasks was between riding a tram and looking for three signs that revealed the location of the Pit Stop or delivering two parakeets in a birdcage to a boat whose registration number matched the number on the birdcage. Nat and Kat were the first team to complete all the tasks and made it to the Pit Stop first, awarding them a trip for two to Brazil. Nick and Vicki had trouble with all the tasks and finally gave up during the Detour, which earned them a six hour penalty. However, they were spared elimination since this was the last non-elimination leg of the season.
