The U-Turn is always a point of controversy on The Amazing Race . Kris and Amanda were eliminated last night because they were U-Turned by Margie and Luke, and there has been much debate about what Margie and Luke did. Was it ethical? Kris and Amanda weren't a threat to Margie and Luke on last night's leg, but then again, Amanda and Kris were shaping up as a team to be reckoned with - I thought they were the most likely to win it all. The U-Turn, despite its brutal ramifications, is a part of The Amazing Race, and should therefore be utilized, right? It may have been cowardly, but I figure if you're playing for a million dollars, you take every advantage available to you. You only race once. Amanda and Kris, on a show that consistently features dysfunctional and often appalling young couples, were a breath of fresh air. The couple got along incredibly well in stressful circumstances, remaining likable even as the reality of their impending elimination became clear. We had the chance to speak with Amanda and Kris earlier today about their time on The Amazing Race. For The Full Interview Click here .

It was gypsies, vamps and a really bad flight on Sunday's Amazing Race 14 that saw married couple Brad and Victoria Hunt eliminated.

One more team falls down in the 14th edition of " The Amazing Race ". Married couple Linda and Steve end up as the last one to check in, in the second leg of the race and therefore, eliminated. They join Preston and Jennifer who have already been cast away in the elimination station, a utility provided for the eliminated teams to hinder spoilers. In the Roadblock task, Linda made a grave mistake when she was supposed to walk down the mountain. While the others made it through, she got lost and asked someone to take her back up the mountain.

Tammy and Victor hit the pit stop first and earned hybrid go-karts, followed by, in respective order, Mel and Mike, Amanda and Kris, Margie and Luke, Brad and Victoria, Jaime and Cara, Kisha and Jen, Mark and Michael, and Christie and Jodi.
