"Best Friends" Bopper and Mark Avoid Elimination Again on "The Amazing Race 20"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 20" best friends William "Bopper" Minton and Mark Jackson avoided elimination again despite arriving last on this leg's Pit Stop. The episode began with the five remaining teams flying from Kilimanjaro, Tanzania to Cochin, India. When they landed the teams boarded a bus to Sacred Heart College, where a Roadblock awaited. One team member had to learn and perform a complicated Bollywood dance routine. Mark had trouble learning the dance, causing him and Bopper to plummet to last place. When the teams completed the task, they were instructed to make their way to the Indian Coffee Shop, where they faced a Detour. The choice of tasks was between participating in a game of cricket and hitting two balls past a boundary or properly driving a rickshaw around a training course without hitting any obstacles. Dave and Rachel flew through all the tasks and arrived at the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to St. Lucia. Mark and Bopper, on the other hand, contemplated giving up during the dancing task, but ultimately decided to stick with it and finish the task. Unsurprisingly, the friends checked into the Pit Stop last, but were once again spared since it was another non-elimination leg. Can the Kentucky boys make another comeback and earn a place in the final four! Tune in next week and find out!
