Having struggled the most at the road block, Erin & Joslyn really had no chance to catch up in The Amazing Race 28 Episode 5 and were eliminated.
Teams depart in the order in which they arrived.
First: Tyler & Korey – 5:28AM
Second: Brodie & Kurt – 5:35AM
Third: Dana & Matt – 5:48AM
Fourth: Scott & Blair – 6:08AM
Fifth: Zach & Rachel – 6:18AM
Sixth: Burnie & Ashley – 6:37AM
Seventh: Sheri & Cole – 6:38AM
Teams must now fly to Yerevan, Armenia. All teams are on the same flight with tasks not starting until the 8AM hours of operation.
Their first task is to search a theater for clues, which it turns out aren’t so much hidden as being held by the guy vacuuming, who at first glance probably just seems like another distraction. Only Dana & Matt are smart enough to quietly take their clue and move on, but still, some teams are left searching despite everybody being so obvious about it.
The detour is a choice between thread or bread. In thread, teams must complete a row of stitches on a carpet. In bread, teams must bake lavash.
Bread: Brodie & Kurt, Burnie & Ashley
Thread: Sheri & Cole, Dana & Matt, Zach & Rachel, Tyler & Korey, Scott & Blair
It doesn’t seem as if either detour serves much of an advantage.
The road block requires teams to perform an oil change at a “garage” on the side of the road.
Road block (in order of arrival): Kurt, Sheri, Burnie, Zach, Matt, Scott, Tyler
Only two people are allowed on the ramp at once, removing or at least reducing the ability for teams that are behind to catch up. But there is hope for the trailing teams. Sheri is tying up one of the ramps by herself, so they can just keep leapfrogging her as the other one is free. Tyler goes so far as to help the teams in front of him just go get a space.
The pit stop for this leg of the race is the Temple of Garni.
First: Brodie & Kurt (win express pass)
Second: Burnie & Ashley
Third: Zach & Rachel
Fourth: Dana & Matt
Fifth: Scott & Blair
Sixth: Tyler & Korey
Seventh: Sheri & Cole
The next leg starts right away, so Sheri & Cole survive.
