On tonight's "Amazing Race 22" best friends Pamela Chien and Winnie Sung became the fifth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the seven remaining teams continuing to race in Botswana. Bates and Anthony were the first team to depart and also the first team to reach the Fast Forward. The task consisted of water skiing a full mile down a crocodile infested river. The brothers successfully completed the task on their first try and were able to proceed directly to the Pit Stop. Not surprisingly, they arrived there first and were awarded $7,500 each. The other six teams faced a Roadblock, which required one team member to paddle a canoe down the river while the other teammate carried two goats with them on the canoe. On the way to the Roadblock, both Jen & Caroline and Max & Katie got pulled over by police for speeding and had to travel to the police station to pay a fine. To add insult to injury, Max even backed into a pole on his way out of the police station. When the Roadblock was completed, teams made their way to the Royal Tree Lodge Game Preserve where they found a Detour. The choice of tasks was between going on a horseback safari and memorizing a series of animal cutouts they saw or loading wood onto a sleigh and getting a team of donkeys to transport it to a nearby campsite. Pamela and Winnie had trouble with the donkeys and decided to switch to the other task, but returned to the donkeys after failing at the cutout task as well. Before they could start the Detour, Max and Katie had to complete their Speed Bump task, which consisted of performing a ceremonial dance with the locals. Pamela and Winnie couldn't recover from their bad performance at the Detour and arrived at the Pit Stop last, eliminating them from the race.
