"Married Couple" Chuck & Wynona McCall the Sixth Team Eliminated from "Amazing Race 22"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 22" married couple Chuck and Wynona McCall became the sixth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the six remaining teams flying from Maun, Botswana to Zurich, Switzerland. When the teams landed a conductor gave them a clue instructing them to take the train to Grindelwald. When they arrived there an Alpine shepherd gave them another clue telling them to travel to the Hotel Bellevue, pick up a Saint Bernard dog and take him to Europe's highest railway station. Once they transported the dogs, the teams traveled back to Grindelwald where a Roadblock awaited. One team member had to traverse the north face of the Eiger mountain and pick up a Travelocity gnome along the way. Once they reached the other side the teams traveled to Grindelwald Grund where they followed the sound of an alphorn to find their next clue. That clue ended up being the Switchback, which was a redo of the classic cheese wheel task from season fourteen. This time around, teams used a traditional Swiss sled to transport four 50 pound wheels of cheese downhill to a barn. Once again, 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 Bora Bora. Chuck & Wynona and Meghan & Joey had fallen behind the other teams and were battling it out to not check in last. In the end, Chuck and Wynona arrived at the Pit Stop first, but were given a thirty minute penalty for rolling the cheese down the hill instead of using the sleds. That allowed Meghan and Joey to catch up and check in while Chuck and Wynona were waiting out their penalty. Phil then told the married couple that they were in last place and eliminated them from the race.
