After scoring an earlier flight to Tokyo on The Amazing Race 23, Leo and Jamal overcame a Speed Bump, but were undone by an alliance... and buttons on a robot. "Those damn buttons! I did not see them at all," Leo tells TVGuide.com. "It sucked because we were feeling so good. We got the earlier flight.

"I do think we have four very strong and determined teams left," he tells TVGuide.com. "This will be a very exciting final leg!" On Sunday's two-hour finale (8/7c, CBS), the final four teams — ER doctors Travis and Nicole, exes Tim and Marie, dating couple Jason and Amy, and cousins/Afghanimals Leo and Jamal — race through ...
