Laurence and Zac Sunderland
The Amazing Race's Laurence and Zac Sunderland survived Zac's two left feet at the Roadblock and a U-Turn, and were seemingly on their way to the Pit Stop when they got hopelessly lost for two hours. "They had some weird signs in Copenhagen and we ended up getting lost," Zac, who at 17 was the youngest person to sail solo around the world in 2009, tells TVGuide.com. "We took some wrong turns, got some bad advice and it kind of did us in in the end." Find out why traffic was so bad, why they had no luck with the locals and the scoop on Laurence's old rock band.

The No. 1 rule of The Amazing Race is to always read your clue — except Jennifer Young didn't have it on her. But instead of biking back to the start of the fish-delivering Roadblock, she chose to wait it out in the Malawian village, sealing her and brother Justin's fate. "I thought I had seen other teams in the same village, so I thought that we're all delivering to the same place and I'll wait for somebody. Yeah, no!" she tells TVGuide.com. "I found out later they were delivering to different places and there was another entrance to this village, so my plan did not work. ... After a while, I figured out that they must've already delivered or they went somewhere else to deliver, so I gotta get out of here." Find out how long she stood in the village — and how Justin and his fellow Racers did in the New York City Marathon.

Our top moments of the week:
14. Worst Homage: Susan struggles in her "super-edgy" community college art class on Desperate Housewives when the instructor asks the students to paint a nude model. When Susan's teacher points out her discomfort, Susan goes
a little a lot overboard to compensate for her nerves — and comes to class naked when she misinterprets something her teacher says. The scene would be funnier if it wasn't almost an exact retread of her accidental nude streak in Season 1.

Liz And Marie
Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs aren't the only 2 Broke Girls on CBS. Liz and Marie Canavan didn't have a penny to their name when they arrived in Bangkok on The Amazing Race after giving all their cash to a cabbie.

"We could've taken cabs and you saw how unpredictable that got." The twins did get two free cab rides — albeit too late — but they don't regret not asking for them earlier. Find out why — and why they love elephants.
