Amazing Race 26 eliminated Steve Langton & Aly Dudek in April 17th show tonight. Tonight’s 2 hour show, started off with the teams learning they had to catch a flight to Namibia to get their first clue for this leg of the race. Once they got there, they jumped on bush planes. Then drove themselves to the Bushman Village, and had to get some salt lick on the way.
From there, they hit a Roadblock challenge where they had to help a bushmen build a hut. After finishing that up, they ran into their detours: “Track” or “Pack.” In the “Track” detour: they had to find an elephant using some special technology equipment to get their next clue. In the “Pack” detour, they had to put together a meal for the desert dogs to get their next clue.
Once they completed their detours, they were given the pit stop for this leg of the race. Aly and Steve were sitting pretty in first place until they hit something and got a flat. That caused them to drift right into dead last place.
Mat & Ashley showed up in first place and won $5,000 each. Laura & Tyler came in 2nd place, Hayley & Blair took 3rd place, Jenny & Jelani arrived in 4th place, Mike & Rochelle came in 5th place, and Aly & Steve showed up dead last. However, host Phil Keoghan, told them it was a non elimination leg, so they got to stick around for the next leg, but endure an exclusive Speed Bump challenge in the 2nd hour.
To start off the 2nd hour, the teams had to go back into town and eventually hit up a skydiving Road Block challenge. In it, they had to locate a case that was dropped from a plane out in the middle of nowhere. Once they completed that, they had to drive somewhere else to get their next clue.
Aly & Steve’s exclusive “Speed Bump” challenge, required them to make some toys to get back into the main race. Meanwhile, the rest of the teams hit up their detours: “Work” or “Play.” In the “Work” detour, they had to drag five tires for five miles with their trucks to smooth out road in order to get their next clue. In the “Play” detour, they had to sled down a couple of sand dunes to acquire their next clue.Read More..>>
