"Friends/Snowboarders" Andy and Tommy Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 19"
Czeschin became the eighth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the four remaining teams dressing up as two characters from The Adventures of Tintin comic books & being instructed to find a man dressed as Tintin and telling him their character's names. When they gave Tintin the correct names, they were given a clue that instructed them to book a flight to their next destination: Panama City, Panama. All four teams got tickets on the same flight to Panama and arrived together the next day. When they landed they made their way to Parara Puru and signed up for one of four times to receive a tattoo the next morning. Said tattoo instructed them to their next location: the San Francisco Bay Towers. When they found the Towers, they also found a Roadblock, which required one team member to walk 65 feet between the Towers on a tightrope 35 stories tall. When the task was completed, teams were given a clue instructing them to find a man under a rooster which they had to figure out meant the Ferdinand de Lesseps statue. Once there, teams were faced with a Detour. The choice of tasks was between traveling to a nearby fish market and delivering fish to different marked stalls or traveling to a sandals stall and crafting a pair of sandals using one piece of leather each. Marcus and Amani were the only team to choose the fish task. When the task was completed, teams made their way to the Plaza de la Catedral and had to find the name of the Pit Stop in the dresses and necklaces of a group of tamborito dancers. Andy and Tommy found the wrong name on the dancers and instructed their taxi driver to a location nowhere near the Pit Stop. That allowed the other three teams the time to figure out the right location: Panama Viejo. Jeremy and Sandy were the first team to reach the Pit Stop and were awarded with a trip for two to Turks and Caicos. Andy and Tommy couldn't overcome their big mistake and arrived at the Pit Stop last, eliminating them from the race. Next week, the final 3 couples race to the Finish Line & one pair will win the $1 million prize!
