"Former Vegas Showgirls" Kaylani and Lisa Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 19"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 19" former Vegas showgirls Kaylani and Lisa became the third team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the nine remaining teams continuing to race in Indonesia. They were first instructed to join a group of reenacters of the Dutch colonial era Bicycle Guard and ride their bikes through the streets of Yogyakarta to Fort Vredeburg in order to receive their next clue. During the ride, Ernie's bike pedal fell off, causing him and Cindy to fall behind the other teams. When they reached the fort, teams were instructed to travel to Salakmalang Village, where a Detour awaited them. The choice of tasks was between carrying lunch to rice paddy workers and then helping the workers plant 300 rice seedlings or filling two bags with grass, transporting two sheep to a shed and then retrieving six buckets of water from a well to fill a trough. It was explicitly stated in the clue that teams could only use two buckets at a time to fill the trough, however Laurence and Zac didn't spot that and broke the rules. When the task was completed, teams made their way to Borobudur temple, where they found a Roadblock. One team member had to walk around the temple and count how many Buddha statues were in one of four different poses. Many teams worked together on the task since it was very difficult. Laurence and Zac arrived at the Pit Stop first, but were given a 15 minute penalty for breaking the rules earlier. That allowed Andy and Tommy to be the first team to check in and they were awarded with a trip for two to Dubai. In a close finish, Kaylani and Lisa arrived at the Pit Stop last and were eliminated from the race.
