On tonight's "Amazing Race 22" newlyweds Max and Katie Bichler avoided elimination despite arriving last on this leg's Pit Stop. The episode began with the seven remaining teams flying from Hanoi, Vietnam to Maun, Botswana. When the teams landed, they had to board one of three planes departing 15 minutes apart and fly to the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. There they met some local bushmen and received the next clue: the Roadblock. One team member had to travel with three bushmen to a scorpion hole and dig out a scorpion using only a stick and their hands. Once they found a scorpion and put it in a jar the teams traveled by van with the bushmen to their next task. That task was the Detour, which was a choice between starting a fire using zebra manure and a stick or correctly assembling a guinea fowl trap and testing it to make sure it worked. Many teams tried the fire task, but switched to other one when they couldn't start a fire. Bates and Anthony were the first team to complete all the tasks and make it to the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to Phuket, Thailand. Max and Katie had trouble with both Detour tasks, causing them to check into the Pit Stop last. Fortunately for them, it was a non-elimination leg and they were still in the race. Can they overcome their Speed Bump & stay in the game?
