"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.

Jill Behm Voted Off "Survivor 21: Nicaragua"

On tonight's "Survivor: Nicaragua" 43 year old ER doctor Jill Behm became the eighth castaway voted off the show. The episode began with the tribes meeting up for the Reward Challenge, which consisted of leaping off a platform into a pool of water while trying to throw a ball into the opposing team's net. Espada narrowly edged out La Flor for the win, earning them a trip to a Nicaraguan farm and a breakfast of local foods. After their reward the tribes met up again for the Immunity Challenge, which had the castaways aiming a large chute toward various targets and rolling balls down the chute to hit the targets. Espada again defeated La Flor, winning them immunity and sending La Flor to tribal council. Back at camp, Sash approached Marty with a deal to keep Marty in the game. Sash offered Marty safety in exchange for Marty's hidden immunity idol. He even promised to give Marty his idol back after tribal council. Reluctantly, Marty accepted the deal and gave Sash his idol. At tribal council Sash and his gang kept their word and voted off Jill instead.

Kelly Bruno and Yve Rojas Both Voted Off "Survivor: Nicaragua" in Double Elimination


On tonight's "Survivor: Nicaragua" 26 year old medical student Kelly Bruno and 41 year old homemaker Yve Rojas became the sixth and seventh castaways voted off the show. The episode began with the tribes meeting up for the combined Reward/ Immunity Challenge, where Jeff surprised them with the news that both tribes were going to tribal council and two castaways would be voted out. Tribe mates would compete against each other for individual immunity, with the two winners from each tribe battling it out for reward. The first part of the challenge consisted of digging in the dirt with paddles searching for rope rings and then flipping them into a bag on your back. Holly emerged the winner on Espada, while Jill took the win on La Flor. Holly and Jill then faced off in a ring toss challenge for reward, with Jill ultimately winning a feast for La Flor. At Espada's tribal council the vote was split between Marty and Kelly B in the hopes Marty would use his hidden immunity idol. He didn't, forcing a tiebreaker vote where Marty and Kelly B couldn't vote. Everyone but Jane decided to vote out Kelly B, keeping Marty and his idol in the game. Espada was then given their feast and watched La Flor's tribal council, where Yve was unanimously voted out.

When they landed they traveled to the Icehotel where Michael & Kevin's Speed Bump awaited them. The guys had to sit on chairs made of ice for ten minutes before they could continue on the race. The team's next clue instructed them to Fjellborg's Lodge where they faced a Roadblock. One team member had to ride a dog sled through a course, collecting five flags along the way. When they completed the task the teams made their way to a nearby train station where they found a Detour. The choice of tasks was between riding down a mountain on a snowmobile in under a minute and fifty eight seconds or building a traditional Swedish tent called a goahti and furnishing the inside with furs and a fire pit. Nat & Kat were the first team to complete all the tasks and made it to the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to Belize.

Tyrone Davis Voted Off "Survivor: Nicaragua"

On tonight's "Survivor: Nicaragua" 42 year old fire captain Tyrone Davis became the fifth castaway voted off the show. The episode began with the tribes meeting up for the Reward Challenge, where Jeff surprised them by announcing a tribe mix-up. The castaways drew rocks to see who would become new tribe captains, and Brenda and Holly were the lucky two. Brenda chose Jane, Jill and Marty to be on the new La Flor and Holly chose Alina, Benry, Chase and NaOnka to join the new Espada. With that, the Reward Challenge commenced and Espada took the win in a Plinko-like game. For their reward they were given two chickens and a rooster. Back at camp Tyrone informed the new young tribe members how the Espada camp was run, which didn't sit well with many of the castaways. Over on La Flor, Marty tried to make a good first impression by telling his new tribe mates that he has a hidden immunity idol. Later that night a huge rain storm pummeled the camps, driving NaOnka to have a breakdown and consider quitting. The next day the tribes met up for the Immunity Challenge, which consisted of spinning three tribe members around on a wheel, dunking them in water. While underwater they would fill their mouths with water and then spit it into a tube. When the tube was full a ball would be released that the other tribe mates would use to break five tiles. Espada took an early lead, but La Flor staged a come from behind victory to win them immunity. At tribal council the majority of Espada decided that Tyrone was too controlling and voted him out 6-2.

"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.

Jimmy Tarantino Voted Off Survivor Nicaragua

On tonight's "Survivor: Nicaragua" 48 year old commercial fisherman Jimmy Tarantino became the fourth castaway voted off the show. The episode began with Brenda and NaOnka finding the hidden immunity idol at the La Flor camp. Alina and Kelly B also went searching for the idol, not knowing that NaOnka had already found it. The next day the tribes met up for yet another combined Reward/Immunity Challenge. One person from each team guided three blindfolded pairs of tribe mates around a field using only their voice. The blindfolded pairs had to retrieve ten scattered items and bring them to their mat. They then had to retrieve a set of keys to open a treasure chest. La Flor decided to use their Medallion of Power, which automatically gave them two items on their mat. They didn't need the advantage though, as they easily beat Espada and won immunity. They were also allowed to keep three of the ten items and they chose fishing gear, cooking supplies and a tarp. Back at camp, Chase found a clue to the hidden immunity idol in the tackle box and shared it with Brenda. Brenda informed Chase that NaOnka had already found the idol, but told him not to tell anyone. Over on Espada, Jimmy T and Dan were both on the chopping block but at tribal council Jimmy T dug his own grave and was subsequently voted out 5-3.
