"Siblings" Justin and Jennifer Young the Fifth Team Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 19"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 19" siblings Justin and Jennifer Young became the fifth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with all seven remaining teams traveling via bus from Lilongwe to Salima, Malawi. When they arrived they immediately found a Roadblock, which required one team member to use a bicycle taxi known as a kibaza to take a customer holding fish to one of three different destinations in the village of Salima. Before Amani and Marcus could start the Roadblock, they had to complete their Speed Bump task which consisted of solving a slide puzzle that depicted the Malawian flag. Jennifer mistakenly left the clue with her brother when she went to do the Roadblock, causing her to have a hard time figuring out how to complete the task. By the time she traveled back to retrieve the clue, all the other teams had moved on. Next up, the teams made their way to Lake Malawi where a Detour awaited them. The choice of tasks was between paddling out to a series of drummers on the lake and then paddling back to the finish line or unloading a ferry on the lake by carrying two boxes of cabbage, two bundles of sugar cane, two brooms, one chair, one fan, and eight passengers to the shore. Every team except for Amani and Marcus chose the paddling task. Ernie and Cindy had a difficult time paddling and decided to use their Express Pass, allowing them to skip the task altogether. When the task was completed, teams traveled to the Jamaica Shop and found a Double U-Turn, which let two teams make two other teams go back and complete the other Detour task. Laurence and Zac where the only team to use the U-Turn, and they mistakenly used it on a team that was ahead of them - Amani and Marcus. In a race to the Pit Stop, Andy and Tommy narrowly edged out Ernie and Cindy for first place, earning them $7,500 each. Justin and Jennifer couldn't overcome their earlier mistake and arrived at the Pit Stop last, eliminating them from the race. Six teams remain, who will be eliminated next?
