"Married Couple" Amani and Marcus Avoid Elimination on "The Amazing Race 19"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 19" married couple Amani and Marcus Pollard avoided elimination despite arriving last on this leg's Pit Stop. The episode began with the seven remaining teams flying from Bangkok, Thailand to Malawi, Africa. When they landed, teams traveled to the Limbe Tobacco Warehouse where a Roadblock awaited them. One team member had to transport ten 200-pound bales of tobacco leaves through the warehouse to a drop-off zone using only a hand-cart that carried one bag at a time. Amani and Marcus got a bad taxi driver, which caused them to fall behind the other teams. When the task was completed, teams were instructed to make their way to Memorial Tower, where they found a Detour. The choice of tasks was between using a manual sewing machine to finish making a customer's suit or building two toy trucks using everyday materials for the schoolchildren at a nearby school. Lastly, teams traveled to the R-K Furniture Shop where they had to transport two handcrafted wooden beds to Kumbali Village and then carry the beds to the Pit Stop. Justin and Jennifer were the first team to reach the Pit Stop, but couldn't check in because they hadn't paid their driver. That allowed Andy and Tommy to come in first and they were awarded with a trip for two to the British Virgin Islands. Bill and Cathi also forgot to pay their driver, causing them to fall from third to sixth place. Amani and Marcus couldn't overcome their earlier bad luck and arrived at the Pit Stop last. However, it was a non elimination leg & all they got was a Speed Bump for next week.

Ozzy Voted Off "Survivor 23: South Pacific"

On tonight's "Survivor: South Pacific" veteran player Ozzy Lusth volunteered to be sent to Redemption Island and his tribe granted his wish and voted him out. The episode began with the duel between Christine and Mikayla. The challenge consisted of disassembling a box, using the pieces as planks to build a bridge and then using some of the planks to solve a puzzle. Once again, Christine emerged the winner and Mikayla was sent home for good. Back at the Savaii camp, Ozzy approached Cochran with the idea of volunteering to be sent to Redemption Island if they lost the Immunity challenge so that Ozzy could beat Christine and re-enter the game. That would mean the tribes would be even with six castaways each going into the merge. Over on Upolu, Coach decided to up the morale on the tribe and pretended he and Sophie had just found the hidden immunity idol, when in reality they had found it days before. The next day, the tribes met up for the Reward/Immunity challenge, which consisted of castaways pairing up and navigating an obstacle course blindfolded in the water. Once they collected four bags of masks, they made their way back to the beach and had to match up the masks using only their sense of touch. The tribes were pretty even the entire challenge, until a mistake by Cochran made Savaii fall behind and allowed Upolu to take the win. Besides immunity, Upolu were also awarded with an advance screening of the new movie Jack & Jill. Back at Savaii's camp, the tribe started thinking that sending Cochran to Redemption Island was a better plan than sending Ozzy. However, the next morning Ozzy was adamant that they send him instead, as he felt he stood a better chance of beating Christine. At tribal council, Ozzy handed over his immunity idol to Cochran and made him promise to give it back to him when he returned. The tribe then unanimously voted Ozzy out and sent him to Redemption Island. Next week, he'll duel five time champion Christine and the winner will most likely re-enter the game!

"Twin Sisters" Liz and Marie Canavan Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 19"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 19" twin sisters Liz and Marie Canavan became the fourth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the eight remaining teams continuing to race in Phuket, Thailand. The teams were first instructed to travel to the Ton Pariwat Wildlife Conservation Area, where they rode elephants up the river to reach a Roadblock. One team member had to search for a man playing a traditional Thai flute. They then had to search the water around him for a bag that contained their next clue. Before the twins could start the Roadblock, they had to complete their Speed Bump task which consisted of washing and cleaning up after one of the elephants. Next up, the teams traveled to a nearby store where they had to disassemble a traditional spirit house and deliver it to a local temple. When they got there they were faced with another Roadblock, which required the other teammate to reassemble the house exactly as it was. A few teams thought that would be the task and had payed close attention to what the original house looked like. When the house was rebuilt, teams were given a clue that told them to travel by bus 550 miles to Bangkok. Laurence and Zac were one of the first teams to get to the bus terminal, but thought they made a mistake when they boarded a first class bus so they switched to a different bus even though they didn't have to. When teams arrived in Bangkok, they made their way to the Bangkok Noi Canal, where they had to feed the fish at the river before heading to the Pit Stop. Amani and Marcus were the first team to reach the Pit Stop and were awarded with a trip for two to Bali. Liz and Marie could never catch up to the other teams and arrived at the Pit Stop last, eliminating them from the race. Now only seven teams remain!

Mikayla Voted Off "Survivor 23: South Pacific"

On tonight's "Survivor: South Pacific" 22 year old lingerie football player Mikayla Wingle became the sixth castaway voted out and was sent to Redemption Island. The episode began with an angry Ozzy telling his tribe that he was playing the game alone now and revealing that he had found the hidden immunity idol. The next day, four castaways traveled to Redemption Island to watch the duel between Christine and Elyse. Once again, Christine emerged the winner, this time beating Elyse in a shuffleboard game. Back at Upolu's camp, Brandon stumbled upon a clue to the hidden immunity idol and shared it with Albert and Coach. What Brandon didn't know though, was that Coach had already found the idol and hadn't told him. The next day, the tribes met up for the Reward/ Immunity challenge, which consisted of assembling a wheelbarrow, going through an obstacle course while picking up two loads of coconuts and then emptying them into a trough. Then, three other tribe members had to disassemble the wheelbarrow and use the same pieces to construct a slingshot which would be used to fire the coconuts at five targets. Upolu got off to an early lead, but Savaii was able to catch up late in the challenge and ended up winning. Besides immunity, they were also awarded with a picnic at a local resort.  Back at the Upolu camp, Albert, Sophie and Mikayla wanted to get rid of Edna while Coach, Brandon and Edna wanted Mikayla out. The deciding vote came down to Rick. At tribal council, Rick sided with Coach and Brandon & voted out Mikayla. Next week, she'll duel four time winner Christine for the right to stay in the game.

"Twin Sisters" Liz and Marie Canavan Avoid Elimination on "The Amazing Race 19"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 19" twin sisters Liz and Marie Canavan avoided elimination despite arriving last on this leg's Pit Stop. The episode began with the eight remaining teams flying from Yogyakarta, Indonesia to Phuket, Thailand. Andy & Tommy and Laurence & Zac, who were an hour ahead of the other six teams, decided to fly to Jakarta and wait to book a connecting flight to Phuket until they landed. The other teams didn't take any chances and booked their entire flights right away. When Andy & Tommy and Laurence & Zac landed in Jakarta, they discovered that the only direct flight to Phuket was fully booked. They were forced to take a flight with a stop in Bangkok that arrived 50 minutes after the other teams. However, they were able to catch up since all the teams had to spend the night at the Nonthasak Marine because it didn't open until 8am. The next morning, the teams rode speedboats to a nearby beach where a Detour awaited them. The choice of tasks was between building a coral nursery, transporting it via kayak to the ocean floor and placing coral pieces into the nursery or setting up 20 beach chairs and 10 umbrellas so that they exactly matched ones already on the beach. A few teams had trouble with the coral task and decided to switch to the beach task. Next up, the teams were given a compass and a medallion and were instructed to travel north for 13 minutes until they reached the island shown on their medallion: Soap Island. There they found a Roadblock, which made one team member climb the island's sheer rock wall until they reached a bird's nest. For the third week in a row, Andy & Tommy were the first team to complete all the tasks and make it to the Pit Stop first, earning them $5,000 each. Liz & Marie arrived last, but were spared from elimination and given a Speed Bump task for the next leg.

Elyse Voted Off "Survivor 23: South Pacific"

On tonight's "Survivor: South Pacific" 27 year old dance instructor Elyse Umemoto became the fifth castaway voted out and was sent to Redemption Island. The episode began with four castaways traveling to Redemption Island to watch the duel between Christine and Stacey. Before the duel began, Stacey decided to spill the beans on her old tribe and told Savaii that Coach was in charge over on Upolu. When the challenge commenced, the women faced off in a game of coordination where they had to catch balls that were spiraling down a metal track. Stacey was first to drop one of her balls, giving Christine the win and sending herself home for good. When the Upolu members returned to camp, they told their tribemates what Stacey had said and Coach wasn't too happy about it. Later, Albert found a clue to the whereabouts of the hidden immunity idol and decided to share it with Coach and Sophie. After some searching, Coach found the hidden idol in a tree and shared his discovery with his alliance. The next day, the tribes met up for the Reward/ Immunity challenge, which consisted of ripping pieces of meat off a big pork roast using only their mouths and transporting it to their team basket. After ten minutes, the meat was weighed and Upolu emerged the winner by a tiny two ounces. Besides immunity, they were also awarded vegetables, spices, bread and all the meat they had collected. Back at the Savaii camp, Jim approached Whitney and Keith with his plan to blindside Elyse. They liked the idea, but didn't know if they wanted to turn their backs on Ozzy. At tribal council, Whitney and Keith decided to throw their votes to Dawn. That allowed the alliance of Jim, Cochran and Dawn to have just enough votes to boot Elyse. Next week, she'll duel three time winner Christine for the right to stay in the game.

"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.

Huge Spoiler: "Survivor 24: One World" will be Men Vs. Women all living on the same beach

The upcoming winter season of "Survivor" will have some major twists to the game. It has been revealed by a reliable spoiler that "Survivor 24: One World" will feature tribes of men vs. women who are separate but live on the same beach. It's also been confirmed that there will be no returning cast members and no Redemption Island. The upcoming season has already finished filming in Samoa, which is the same place the current season was shot in. This will be the first time in "Survivor" history that two tribes will live together on the same beach from day one. The decision to make the tribes split by gender was probably to make it easy for the viewers to know who was on which tribe. The new season premieres in February. What do you think of these changes? Are you liking the idea of two tribes living together? What about no returnees or Redemption Island? Leave a comment & share your thoughts

Over on Upolu, Brandon once again apologized to Mikalya and then informed Edna that she was at the bottom of the pecking order in their alliance. Later, two members of each tribe traveled to Redemption Island to watch the duel between Christine and Papa Bear, which consisted of tossing sandbags onto crates. Papa Bear made a come from behind surge, but Christine squeaked out the win at the end, sending Papa Bear home for good. Back at camp, Edna knew she was on the outs with her tribe so she decided to up her social game, annoying some of her tribemates in the process. The next day, the tribes met up for the Reward/ Immunity challenge, which consisted of three players from each tribe holding as much weight as they could on a pole that rested across their shoulders. The challenge came down to Dawn vs. Stacey and in the end Dawn pulled out the win for Savaii. Besides immunity, they were also awarded a rooster and two hens. Later at Upolu, Stacey tried to create friction on her tribe by telling Brandon about a secret alliance he wasn't part of. When Brandon told this to Coach, Coach got upset and told him not to believe things from people on the chopping block. At tribal council, the real alliance stayed strong and booted Stacey. Next week, she'll duel Christine for the right to stay in the game.

"Dating Couple" Ethan & Jenna and "Partners" Ron & Bill Eliminated from "Amazing Race 19"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 19" dating couple Ethan Zohn & Jenna Morasca and domestic partners Ron Zeitz & Bill Smith were both eliminated from the race in the first ever Double Elimination. The episode began with the eleven teams flying from Taipei, Taiwan to Jakarta, Indonesia. When they landed, they had to take an overnight train to Yogyakarta and then travel via taxi to Goa Jomblang cave, where a Roadblock awaited them. One team member had to descend down into the cave and then search for a traditional Javanese mask and a dagger known as a kris, before returning to the surface and exchanging them for their next clue. Grandparents Bill & Cathi were the first team to reach the Roadblock, but they had to complete their Speed Bump task before continuing on. The task consisted of untangling a pile of rope until they had enough length to reach a karabiner across the field. The next challenge was the Detour, which was a choice between dressing up in costumes and dancing in the streets until they made 30,000 rupiah ($3.40) or convincing fifteen motorbike riders to let them park their bike at a local mall. Upon completion of both Detour tasks, teams were instructed to travel to the Aisyiyah orphanage and donate their money to receive their next clue. A small sign at the orphanage informed the teams that they had to donate all of the money in their possession, not just the money they earned during the Detour. Many teams didn't spot the sign and had to go back to the orphanage and give the rest of their money. Once teams donated the money, they received a coat of arms from the children and had to figure out that it belonged to the sultan and that his palace was this leg's Pit Stop. Ernie & Cindy arrived at the Pit Stop first, but couldn't check in since they hadn't donated all their money. Andy & Tommy did read the sign and therefore checked in first, earning them a trip for two to Ireland. Ethan & Jenna and Ron & Bill were the tenth and eleventh teams, respectively, to check in and since it was a Double Elimination, they were both sent home.
