"Father & Daughter" Gary and Mallory Ervin Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 17"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 17" father/daughter duo Gary and Mallory Ervin became the sixth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with all the teams departing the Pit Stop in Russia, except for Chad and Stephanie who overslept and left a full two hours after their scheduled departure. However, they were able to catch up when they booked a flight to Oman that contained many of the other teams. When the teams landed they made their way to the Portuguese Watchtower where they had to wait til morning when it opened. During the wait Chad decided to propose to Stephanie and she accepted. When the tower opened the teams found a Roadblock, which required one teammate to rappel 500 feet down the side of a mountain and then search for a ring amongst hundreds of oil lamps. To complete the Roadblock the teams first had to drive to the mountain, during which Nat and Kat & Gary and Mallory got lost causing them to fall way behind. After the Roadblock teams made their way to a sculpture of a stack of books where a Detour awaited them. The choice of tasks was between pumping water into a truck and delivering the water to a designated house or purchasing 25 chickens and other foods at a local market and serving a traditional wedding soup. All six teams chose the water task with Jill and Thomas & Chad and Stephanie duking it out for first. After the Detour the teams were instructed to a market where they had to locate Ali Baba and give him some frankincense. Jill and Thomas were the first team to complete all the tasks and made it to the Pit Stop first, however they were given a 30 minute penalty for having a cab driver lead them to a destination. That allowed Chad and Stephanie to check in first and Phil awarded them with a trip for two to Belize. Gary and Mallory's bad luck continued all the way to the Pit Stop as they came in last and were eliminated from the race.
