"Father/Son" David and Connor O'Leary Arrive First on Continuing Leg of "Amazing Race 22"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 22" father and son David and Connor O'Leary arrived first on a continuing leg of the race. The episode began with the nine remaining teams flying from Bora Bora to Christchurch, New Zealand. At the Pit Start a doctor looked at David's ankle and confirmed his worst fear that he had indeed torn his Achilles tendon. The doctor allowed him to continue on the race, but made him wear a cumbersome boot and use crutches. Their only consolation was that Jessica and John finally gave them the second Express Pass. When the teams landed in New Zealand they had to wait until the following morning to start the next task, allowing all the teams lagging behind to catch up. The first task was the Detour, which was a choice between driving a car around an obstacle course in under 83 seconds or catching two fish that were at least 12 inches long. Most teams chose the driving task, fearing that the fish wouldn't bite. David and Connor decided to use their Express Pass and skip the Detour altogether. Next up was the Roadblock, where one team member was required to run a muddy obstacle course called a "Shemozzle" while collecting 12 eggs along the way. Connor was able to complete the task and he and his dad made it to the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to Bangkok. However, Phil told them that the leg wasn't over and gave them their next clue. Will the father/son duo continue the race?
