"Dating Couple" Nick DeCarlo & Vicki Casciola Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 17"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 17" dating couple Nick DeCarlo and Vicki Casciola became the eighth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the teams flying from Hong Kong, China to Seoul, South Korea. Nick and Vicki's six hour penalty caused them to miss the first departing flight that contained the other three teams. They then had to wait nine more hours before another flight departed for Seoul. When the teams landed they made their way to Seung-il Bridge where they were instructed to whitewater raft down a river and then take a Humvee to a military base. At the base they found a Roadblock, which required one team member to search amongst 200 soldiers for one that was wearing a headband that matched the one they were given. When the task was completed the teams traveled to the Seoul World Cup Stadium where a Detour awaited them. The choice of tasks was between skating 25 laps around a rink or transporting six glass bottles of ginseng tonic to a store and then drinking a glass of the tonic. All the teams chose the skating task and completed it with little trouble. The teams were then instructed to find an airplane in a park before they made their way to the Pit Stop. Brook and Claire were the first team to get to the Pit Stop but were given a 30 minute penalty for taking a cab to the ice rink when they were explicitly told to take the subway. That allowed Jill and Thomas to check in first and they were awarded with a trip for two to Argentina. Nick and Vicki were never able to overcome their huge time gap and were unsurprisingly eliminated from the race.

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