After two close-call finishes, Gary and Will's Amazing Race luck ran out Sunday when they were eliminated after initially taking the wrong way to the Pit Stop. "We weren't close at all, but we knew we had to keep trying until Phil [Keoghan] told us we were eliminated," Will tells TVGuide.com. The self-professed super-fans of the Race are disappointed they didn't put up a better showing for fellow die-hards, but the substitute teachers say they are proud of one thing.
The Amazing Race 21 premiere had an actual footrace to the Pit Stop, and Rob and Sheila came out on the losing end — by 10 seconds. "If that," Rob tells TVGuide.com. "It was really close. It wasn't the outcome we wanted, but someone had to go and we were the one." The engaged lumberjacks were overtaken by the Chippendales (Jaymes and James) after each team labored to find a woman with an abacus on The Bund, a Shanghai waterfront. The couple probably would've been safe had Trey and Lexi not told the Chippendales where the clue was or if Gary and Will not lied to them about the clue. As it turns out, the three teams had an alliance, only for Gary and Will to renege on it. Would Rob and Sheila had done the same? Find out below.
