The Amazing Race – A Stolen Passport Sees A Team Out
Abba and James, the rock lawyers, were running a great race until their passports was stolen in Russia. They had left their bags in the back of a cab whilst going off to get a clue ant the driver took off with them.
Fans of the series will know once a contestant has lost a passport it means they are gone from the competition as they cannot continue to race.
James and Abba had more chances then most to get it back as it was a non elimination leg, and the race was not leaving the city of Moscow, however they were in Russia the bureaucratic capital of the world.
They discuss their ordeal in an interview with Hollywood Reporter where they say James’ passport is normally tied to him but was in his bag due to his clothes being wet from the synchronised swimming challenge. The former rockers also admit they had no idea the Sri Lankan sisters had their money.
In the end last night the goat farmers, Josh and Brent, were extremely lucky as they received a four hour time penalty because they did not complete the synchronised swimming challenge. They would have been eliminated if the passport incident had not occurred.
The bumbling Chippendale’s are finally looking like contenders at the pointy end of the race. They came first in this leg closely followed by Lexi and Trey. The Sri Lankan girls came third and they unnecessarily used their challenge pass to skip the Russian time zone road block.
