After taking so long to solve a puzzle in The Amazing Race 27 Episode 1 Kelly & Shevonne were the first team eliminated.
Teams depart in the order in which they arrived.
First: Tanner & Josh – 9:40AM
Second: Jazmine & Danielle – 9:44AM
Third: Cindy & Rick – 9:48AM
Fourth: Denise & James – 9:56AM
Fifth: Logan & Chris
Sixth: Alex & Adam
Seventh: Ernest & Jin
Eighth: Kelsey & Joey
Ninth: Justin & Diana
Tenth: Tiffany & Krista
Teams will now head south to Buenos Aires, Argentina. All teams are on the same flight much later that night. This leaves them plenty of time at the airport for Justin to rub people the wrong way.
The detour is a choice between cartoneros or fletero. In cartoneros, they will pick up 100kg of cardboard from recycling bins. In fletero, teams must transport statues.
Cartoneros: Justin & Diana, Tanner & Josh, Logan & Chris, Tiffany & Krista, Ernest & Jin, Cindy & Rick, Alex & Adam, Denise & James Earl, Jazmine & Danielle
Fletero: Kelsey & Joey
Only 1 team chooses to do the statue detour, forcing Jazmine & Danielle to run around until there is an available cart, though they did have the option of switching detours, which probably still would keep them in last place anyway.
The road block requires teams to learn a tilted tango, which involves dancing on a wall for some reason.
Road block (in order of arrival): Diana, Tanner, Logan, Cindy, Kelsey, James Earl, Krista, Jin, Alex, Jazmine
The pit stop for this leg of the race is the cathedral of polo.
First: Justin & Diana (win a trip to Morocco)
Second: Tanner & Josh
Third: Denise & James Earl
Fourth: Logan & Chris
Fifth: Cindy & Rick
Sixth: Tiffany & Krista
Seventh: Kelsey & Joey
Eighth: Jazmine & Danielle
Ninth: Ernest & Jin
Eliminated: Alex & Adam
Tanner wins a footrace to the mat, which will give him a 1 minute advantage in the next leg, but pushes himself so hard that he pulls a hamstring in the process. This may be competing hard, but it’s not competing smart.
Though Alex struggled with the dancing, I thought Jazmine & Danielle were goners when they were still in last place at the end of the road block, but this time the editors weren’t playing tricks. Alex & Adam have been eliminated following the cab ride to see Phil.
