As the only team to have a female do the first very physical road block, Zach & Rachel were eliminated in The Amazing Race 28 Episode 9.
Teams depart in the order in which they arrived.
First: Tyler & Korey – 7:45AM
Second: Burnie & Ashley – 7:52AM
Third: Sheri & Cole – 7:53AM
Fourth: Dana & Matt – 7:54AM
Fifth: Brodie & Kurt – 7:58AM
Teams must now head to Nusa Lembongan, still in Indonesia. All teams, including the team that was eliminated, finished within 15 minutes of each other.
The detour is a choice between harvest or haul. In harvest, teams must harvest seaweed. In haul, teams must deliver 50 coconuts and 4 chickens.
Haul: Tyler & Korey, Burnie & Ashley, Sheri & Cole, Brodie & Kurt, Dana & Matt
Every team chooses the same detour. This would seem to favor the stronger males. But then there’s Dana, the only person who can only carry a single chicken because she needs to save the rest of her energy to yell at her partner. After doing her share of about 15% of the work, she’s still exhausted.
Tyler & Korey are the first to arrive at the U-turn board, and they U-turn Brodie & Kurt, who they see as the biggest threat, though Brodie must now do all the road blocks and has proven to not be very good at them. Korey isn’t sure they made a smart move because everybody did the same task, and they can just turn around and U-turn the team behind them. Burnie & Ashley have a better plan. They U-Turn Tyler & Korey, wasting the U-turn so that Brodie & Kurt can’t use it on anybody.
The road block requires teams to jump four stories off a cliff.
Road block (in order of arrival): Tyler, Ashley, Cole, Matt, Brodie
A rather simple task that won’t last long enough for anyone who just had to do two detours to catch up.
The Bajra Sandhi monument is the pit stop for this leg of the race.
First: Tyler & Korey (win an Alaskan cruise)
Second: Burnie & Ashley
Third: Dana & Matt
Fourth: Sheri & Cole
Eliminated: Brodie & Kurt
After the other teams colluded to get rid of them, Brodie & Kurt have been eliminated.
