"Jersey Friends" Joey Fitness and Danny Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 20"
On tonight's "Amazing Race 20" New Jersey friends Joey "Fitness" Lasalla and Danny Horal
became the fifth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with
the seven remaining teams flying from Bavaria, Germany to Baku, Azerbaijan. When they landed, the teams were instructed to drive to the Temple Ateshgah where a Fast Forward awaited them. Rachel & Dave and Joey & Danny were the first two teams to grab a clue and they both decided to attempt the Fast Forward. That task required them to travel to a nearby market where they would have to unload 150 bales of hay and then stack them ten long, three wide and five high. The two teams were neck and neck until the very end, when Rachel & Dave took the lead and ended up winning the Fast Forward. That allowed them to skip all the other tasks & head straight to the Pit Stop. Unsurprisingly, they checked in first and were both awarded a brand new 2013 Ford Taurus SHO. The other teams faced the Roadblock, which required one team member to participate in a helicopter crash training exercise. They had to
enter a helicopter simulator that would submerge in a pool and flip over. They would then have to knock out a window and swim to a nearby lifeboat. When the task was completed, teams traveled to the Toghrul Karabakh Carpet Shop where a Detour awaited. The choice of tasks was between traveling to a fruit market and searching
through an old car filled with a ton of apples for one apple
marked with a race flag or traveling to a health spa and cleaning crude oil off of a client using a shoehorn. The oil task proved to be much easier than the apple one, as the teams who chose that task arrived at the Pit Stop first. Joey and Danny couldn't make up the time they lost attempting the Fast Forward and arrived at the Pit Stop last, eliminating them from the race. The show returns in 2 weeks with the six remaining teams continuing the race in Tanzania.
