"Engaged Couple" Amanda and Kris Eliminated from "Amazing Race 18: Unfinished Business"

On tonight's "Amazing Race: Unfinished Business" engaged couple Amanda Blackledge and Kris Klicka became the first team eliminated from the race. The episode began with Phil giving every team a clue that instructed them to find "To Sail To Stop" which referred to a statue near Town Hall. When they found the statue the teams signed up for one of two flights to Broken Hill, the second of which left thirty minutes after the first. When they landed the teams found their first Detour, which was a choice between making a traditional stone mosaic and then dancing atop it or making traditional paintings by spraying clay out of their mouths onto a piece of slate with four silhouettes on it. All of the teams chose the stone mosaic task except for Amanda & Kris, who had to perform both tasks because they were given a U-Turn earlier in the leg. When the task was completed teams were told to find the "home of the magpies" which led them to Central Football Club stadium. There they dressed up as kangaroos and were given only a periodic table of elements with two symbols highlighted. The teams had to figure out that those symbols corresponded to the names of two streets at an intersection. Their final clue instructed them to the Pit Stop: Junction Mine. Zev & Justin arrived there first and were awarded a trip for two to Cancun. Amanda & Kris couldn't overcome their U-Turn and arrived last, eliminating them from the race.

The next two teams eliminated have already leaked. To find out if your favorite team goes home early read my secret post here!
