"Roller Derby Moms" Mona and Beth Avoid Elimination on "The Amazing Race 22"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 22" roller derby moms Mona Egender and Beth Bandimere avoided elimination despite arriving last on this leg's Pit Stop. The episode began with the final five teams flying from Zurich, Switzerland to Dresden, Germany. When the teams landed they traveled to the Ministry of Finance and picked up a 2013 Ford Fusion. Before they were told where to drive to, the teams had to answer three multiple choice questions about Germany using the MyFord Touch system. After they correctly answered the questions, they were instructed to drive over 100 miles to the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. When they arrived at the gate, the teams were told to drive to the nearby Park Inn and head up to the roof for their next clue. That clue informed the teams that they both had to BASE jump 37 stories off the top of the hotel. When both teammates completed the jump, they were given their next clue: the Detour. The choice of tasks was between assembling a toy train track and getting the train to make one full lap around the track or transporting two large neon letters by foot to a nearby museum. All the teams except Joey and Meghan initially chose the letter task. Bates and Anthony broke one of their letters on the walk to the museum and decided to switch to the train task. When the Detour was completed teams traveled to the Salon zur Wilden Renate where a Roadblock awaited. One team member had to travel through a crazy labyrinth located within the club to a hidden room that contained their next clue. Max and Katie were the first team to complete all the tasks and make it to the Pit Stop first, earning them both a brand new Ford Fusion. Bates & Anthony and Mona & Beth were battling it out for last place, culminating in a footrace to the Pit Stop. Unsurprisingly, the brothers arrived first, causing the roller derby moms to check in last. Fortunately for them, it was a non-elimination leg and they were still in the race. Can they overcome their Speed Bump and stay in the game? Tune in next week to find out!
