'The Amazing Race 20' Premiere Recap: First Eliminated Team Gets Trouble in Finding the Host


Although there's another team who arrives at the pit stop later than them, Misa and Maiya are sent home because they can't find Phil Keoghan who actually stands close to them.

"The Amazing Race" season 20 was officially kicked off with the airing of the first episode on Sunday, February 19. Eleven teams started their journey from Santa Barbara, California, where they must find the first clue among 100 balloons in the air. Misa and Maiya were the last team who got the clue.

The clue led the teams to LAX airport. The first six teams to arrive at the airport would get tickets of the fastest flight to Santa Barbara, Argentina. Upon arriving in the South American country, they faced Roadblock which involved skydiving.

One team member must jump 10,000 feet from a plane, while the other member would drive to a designated location and then look for their teammate's landing site. After reuniting with their teammates, they moved on to the next challenge which was making 120 empandas, the national dish of Argentina, with two very different pinching techniques.

Married couple, Rachel and Dave, was the first team who finished making the empandas and arrived at the pit stop, Patios de Cafayate Winery. They won the Express Pass, which would allow them to skip one of the tasks until 8th leg.

The next teams arriving in respective orders were Brendon & Rachel R., Art & J.J., Nary & Jamie, Vanessa & Ralph, Elliott & Andrew, Kerri & Stacy, Dave & Cherie and Mark & Bopper. Misa & Maiya actually arrived before Joel & Danny, but the sisters could not find host Phil Keoghan who stood right next to them and got eliminated in the first leg.
