Kent and Vyxsin have become the latest team sent home on "The Amazing Race". In the May 1 episode, all contestants faced one of the toughest legs as they went on an adventure amid the freezing weather in Switzerland. First, the teams headed to the air rescue helicopter port in Zermatt where they boarded on helicopter that departed in five minute intervals.
From Zermatt, they went to a mountain next to the Matterhorn where they had to choose between Search or Rescue for detour. In Search, teams had to locate a training dummy that was buried somewhere on the mountain. Meanwhile in Rescue, teams were required to use a device and rescued a mountaineer by repelling down a crevice.
Kisha and Jen, Flight Time and Big Easy, and Kent and Vyxsin picked Rescue, while Zev and Justin as well as Gary and Mallory opted for Search. Kisha and Jen learned that the task of Rescue required good communication between them, but Kent and Vyxsin apparently had problem with that during the completion of this task.
After completing the detour, the teams took their helicopter to a resort and board a train to Le Petit Cervin Hotel to face a Road Block. They had to create a Travelocity Roaming Gnome completely out of chocolate. Zev and Justin, who were the last to collect the dummy in detour, arrived while the other teams were still working on the Gnome.
Vyxsin finished with the Gnome first and got their next clue. They were told to go to a 300-year-old Swiss cabin, which was the pit stop, on foot. However, they did not read the clue thoroughly and jumped on taxi. Flight Time and Big Easy almost made the same mistake like Kent and Vyxsin, but soon realized that they must walk.
Flight Time and Big Easy arrived at the pit stop first and won a trip for two to the Cook Islands. Next to arrive were Jen and Kisha, followed by Kent and Vyxsin. Host Phil Keoghan told the couple that they incurred a 30-minute penalty for arriving on taxi, and Kent started blaming his girlfriend for everything.
As they were waiting out their penalty, Gary and Mallory arrived and were awarded team number three. Zev and Justin got lost, but finally found their way and arrived while Kent and Vyxsin were arguing over negative energy. Zev and Justin were awarded team number four, which means Kent and Vyxsin were eliminated from the show.
"The Amazing Race" will return next week with its two-hour finale where the four remaining teams will race through Brazil. It is said to be a thrilling finish in the Florida Keyes.
