"Married Clowns" Dave and Cherie Gregg Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 20"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 20" married clowns Dave and Cherie Gregg became the second team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the ten remaining teams traveling to the Cafayate Town Square where the season's first Detour awaited. The choice of tasks was between picking up equipment to build a solar kitchen, assembling the contraption correctly and putting a kettle full of water on it until it came to a boil or traveling to a nearby river, gathering firewood and clay, loading it onto a donkey and delivering their goods to a local pottery shop. All the teams except Art and J.J. chose the kettle task. After the Detour, teams were instructed to take an 18 hour bus ride to Buenos Aires. The ten teams got on three different buses with Kerri & Stacy and Nary & Jamie on the last departing bus. However, a window on the second bus shattered, dropping the four teams on that bus to last place. When the teams arrived in Buenos Aires, they traveled to the Mercado de Hacienda de Liniers cattle auction where they found a Roadblock. One team member had to listen to the auctioneer give the total weight of the cattle in the pen, calculate the average weight of one cow and give the number to a gaucho. If the auctioneer moved onto another pen before they figured out the answer, they would have to start over with the next pen. Rachel and Dave were once again the first team to complete the task and arrived at the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to Grenada. The four teams in the bus that broke down battled it out in the end and it was the clowns who came in last, eliminating them from the race.
