"Father/Daughter" Ron and Christina Hsu Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 18"
On tonight's "Amazing Race: Unfinished Business" father/ daughter duo Ron & Christina Hsu became the fifth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the seven remaining teams flying from Kolkata to Varanasi, India. Jet & Cord overlooked the earliest flight departing Kolkata and instead booked one that arrived in Varanasi an hour after the other teams. When the teams landed they made their way to a Tonga stand, where a Roadblock awaited. One team member had to search the streets for six sadhus, or holy men, that matched the photos they were given. Each sadhu would give them a piece of paper with a word on it, that when put together made up a phrase. When the task was completed, teams made their way to Tulsi Ghat where they found a Detour. The choice of tasks was between making fifty patties out of manure, sticking them to a wall and using dried patties to start a fire or transporting two hay bales from an island in the Ganges to an address written on the bales. Jet & Cord were able to catch up to the other teams and completed the tasks quickly. The Globetrotters were the first team to arrive at this leg's Pit Stop, earning them a trip for two to Hawaii. Ron & Christina weren't so lucky, as they arrived last & were eliminated from the race.
