"Twin Doctors" Idries and Jamil the Second Team Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 22"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 22" twin brothers/doctors Idries and Jamil Abdur-Rahman became the second team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the ten remaining teams continuing to race in Bora Bora, French Polynesia. The first task that faced the teams was the Detour, which was a choice between diving for oyster shells that contained a red pearl or setting up an underwater picnic using items found inside a treasure chest. Idries and Jamil had a lot of trouble with the oyster task, causing them to fall far behind the other teams. The next task was the Roadblock, which required one team member to walk on stilts and kick a coconut across the beach. The two teams who took the four hour penalty last week were able to catch up and even overtake a few teams. Brothers Anthony and Bates were the first team to complete all the tasks and make it to the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to London. On the run to the Pit Stop Dave hurt his foot and thinks he may have ruptured his Achilles tendon. Idries and Jamil finally decided to switch to the other Detour task, but it was too little, too late as they arrived at the Pit Stop last. Phil then told them that they were eliminated from the race.
