Amazing Race's Kaylani and Lisa: We're Shocked Marcus Forgot the Answer

For once, having a cab caused a downfall on The Amazing Race . Vegas showgirls Kaylani Paliotta and Lisa Tilley lost valuable time when they had to settle their cab fare before checking into the Pit Stop at Indonesia's Borobudur Temple, ultimately in last place. "When we were driving up there, we kept telling each other, 'We're going to pay our cab,'" Tilley tells "But for whatever reason, once we actually got there, we were in such a rush to get started that we just had him wait and got out." Still, while their race ended early, they're happy to have raced at all after Paliotta lost her passport en route to LAX in the first leg — only to have Twitter come to the rescue .

Amazing Race's Ethan and Jenna: We Prefer Survivor

Former Survivor champs Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca came up very short on The Amazing Race 19 , becoming one of the first two teams to get the boot in the show's first double elimination.
