The second leg of The Amazing Race 17 kicks off at last week's Pit Stop, Eastnor Castle in England, and Jill & Thomas are the first team to depart, Express Pass in hand. Will they use it on this leg of the race?
The teams go to Heathrow Airport where they will catch flights to Accra, Ghana—whoops! Make that will catch a flight (singular) because there is only one per day. So everyone starts out even this week.
The Nerds from Princeton (Connor & Jonathan), the TV Shopping Hosts (Brook & Clair) and the Volleyball Players (Katie & Rachel) decide to work as a team. Michael (Kevin's dad) is complaining that his leg hurts as they depart the Pit Stop.
The trip to the airport—indeed, to Africa—is uneventful, except for when Brook exchanges a kiss for directions to the airport, and then makes a big deal out of that "strategy."
