A week after "southern belles" Marisa and Brooke were eliminated, couple Aja and Ty found themselves trying to battle back from last place.
The dating couple started off the most recent leg of the race in last place and couldn't rebound from the deficit. Aja and Ty surprisingly remained pretty positive even though they were eliminated. Both said their relationship had gotten stronger during the competition. (Save that stuff for Dr. Phil.)
Meanwhile, the other teams didn't struggle too much with a series of challenges that involved going on a scavenger hunt in Singapore; catching fish in large wooden traps; navigating their way through an ancient temple to find a "chamber of echoes"; and racing to another temple for the end of the leg.
Christy and Kelly brought the much needed drama factor back to the show.
This week, the two divorced best friends were extremely nasty to Dallas, They referred to him as "teen wolf" for a majority of the show. (I suspect that they are jealous because he has shown interest in Starr, whom the two women hate with a passion.)
Siblings Nick and Starr won this portion of the race. As a result, they won a trip to St. John's.
Sarah and Terrence continue to make foolish mistakes. Last week, they didn't follow the rules and illegally used a taxi cab. This week, they got caught speeding. As a result, they will be penalized with a 30-minute delay at the start of the next episode. (That might prove costly with fewer teams left.)
Anyway, getting back to Dallas and Starr. Next week's preview hints that the two might be taking their flirting to a new level. (I wonder how that will affect their competitive spirit? I'm sure their partners want to win the competition, not register for wedding gifts at Macy's.)
