Maria and Tiffany Quit 'Amazing Race'


Maria and Tiffany Quit 'Amazing Race'


The only all-female team in the race's 15th edition has given up their chance to win a million dollar when they couldn't finish a challenge.

From being in the second place in the last leg of "The Amazing Race", poker players Maria Ho and Tiffany Michelle plunged deep into the last position. They quit after being unable to complete tough detour challenges in Netherlands where they had to choose between Farmer's Game and Farmer's Dance.

At the beginning of the race, Tiffany said, "Second place is awesome, but we've learned from poker that it's really, really easy to get comfortable and get involved in pots that you shouldn't." Then came the challenges that forced them to give up. They first chose the dance that required them to learn a traditional Dutch dance, perform it and eat a salted herring. After several failed attempts, they switched to the Game.

In the Game challenge, teams must strip to their underwear and swim across the creek to a golf course. Once there, teams must complete eight holes or under. Maria and Tiffany found it hard to do the strokes because of the weather. "We were back at the golf course weaker than we were before and more freezing than we were before," Tiffany said after the umpteenth time. They gave up on the spot and were approached by host Phil Keoghan.

Maria and Tiffany actually had a shot to catch up because Brian and Ericka got the 30 minutes penalty for not riding bikes as instructed in the clue. Meanwhile, Sam and Dean arrived first at the Pit Stop, taking sand buggy as a prize.

Next week, the remaining five teams go to Sweden where they perform one of the unforgettable challenges from an "Amazing Race" past.
