"Father/Son" Laurence and Zac Sunderland Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 19"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 19" father/son adventurers Laurence and Zac Sunderland became the sixth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the six remaining teams flying from Malawi, Africa to Copenhagen, Denmark. The teams were given a spot on a flight that landed in Copenhagen the next morning at 8:20am, however all the teams except Amani and Marcus got flights that arrived that evening. It didn't really matter though, since the first destination - Vor Frelsers Kirke tower - didn't open til 7:30 in the morning. When it did open, teams climbed to the top of the tower and searched for two clues that when combined revealed the name of their next destination - Frederiksborg Slot. Jeremy and Sandy read the wrong clue, causing them to fall behind the other teams and giving Marcus and Amani a chance to catch up. When teams arrived, they found a Roadblock, which required one team member to dress in a period costume and learn a complex three-part dance from an instructor. When the task was completed, teams were instructed to Frilandsmuseet where a Detour awaited. The choice of tasks was between laying out a proper rabbit show jumping course and then having a rabbit run through the course twice or making six sticks of butter using a traditional butter churn and then stamping out the sticks using a special mold. After that, the teams traveled to Karlstrup Windmill where they found another Double U-Turn. Ernie and Cindy were the first team to reach the Double U-Turn and decided to use it on Bill and Cathi, forcing them to go back and complete the other Detour task. When Bill and Cathi arrived and saw they were U-Turned, they decided to also penalize a team and they picked Laurence and Zac. Unsurprisingly, Ernie and Cindy arrived at the Pit Stop first and won a trip for two to Fiji. Bill and Cathi not only completed both Detour tasks, but ended up coming in second as well. Laurence and Zac, however, couldn't overcome their U-Turn and arrived at the Pit Stop last, eliminating them from the race. Who will be the next to go?
