"Dating Goths" Kent and Vyxsin Eliminated from "Amazing Race 18: Unfinished Business"

On tonight's "Amazing Race: Unfinished Business" dating goths Kent Kaliber and Vyxsin Fiala became the seventh team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the teams continuing to race in Zermatt, Switzerland. They were instructed to make their way to a helicopter port where they would sign up for flights departing every five minutes to the top of the Matterhorn. When they landed the teams faced a Detour. The choice of tasks was between using avalanche beacons to locate and dig up a dummy buried in the snow or using a pulley device to lower one teammate into a crevasse in a glacier and then lifting that teammate and another person back to the surface. When the task was completed, teams took a train to Le Petit Cervin where a Roadblock awaited. One team member had to make a Travelocity gnome out of Swiss chocolate. After the gnome was put in the snow for thirty minutes to harden, teams were given a real gnome and made their way to the Pit Stop. The Globetrotters were the first team to arrive at the Pit Stop, earning them a trip for two to the Cook Islands. Kent and Vyxsin arrived at the Pit Stop third, but were given a 30 minute penalty for taking a taxi when the clue explicitly said to travel on foot. That allowed all the other teams to check in and eliminated them from the race.
