Recap: Mika and Canaan Exit 'Amazing Race' Due to Fear (Season 15, Episode 5)


Another couple was heading home after a few weeks of "The Amazing Race". Mika and Canaan, the newly dating couple who had been finishing seventh place in the last three weeks, finally met the dead line because they were unable to catch up with the rest especially after Mika freaked out in one of the challenges.


The race was kicked off in Dubai with Meghan and Cheyne who were the first to arrive last week embarking for Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club. Teams were given a locked briefcase which combination key can be retrieved in a watch. One member of the teams must row a raft to a yacht. Cheyne got so far ahead that he completed the task before everyone else started.


From there teams get to choose between Gold and Glass. In the former, they have to weigh a certain amount of gold quickly because the price of gold changes every now and then. In the latter, teams should go to a market, open a box and assemble 12 hookahs. The challenge proved to be difficult that Brian and Ericka switched from gold to glass.


Next was the task that got Mika and Canaan stuck. Teams had to slide down a very steep water slide in order to reach the pit stop. Meghan and Cheyne had no trouble with this and became the first team to arrive again, winning two water crafts. Mika, however, was having a little tantrum over the fact that she should overcome her fear of heights. Cheyne was frustrated with her to the point that he forced her to sit on the slide.


Flight Time and Big Easy who were actually behind them, took over and finished sixth. Canaan slid down alone in hope that Mika would follow him, but she never got the gut to take the leap of faith. Canaan said he forgave his girlfriend although she cost him the race.


Next week, the remaining teams will travel to Netherlands where Ericka breaks down and the Globetrotters have the best dance of their life.

i really can't blame Mika for backing out on the task coz im pretty afraid of heights as well.. i might have done the same thing..lol!But i love the way Canaan dealt with the situation. He tried to push Mika to do the task but when she really can't, he understood and accepted Mika's weakness.. that's really sweet of him.. :)

Any chance we can not have the names of those eliminated in the title? I know this appears at the bottom of the page but if you scroll down there looking for new links like I did it's totally unavoiadble - I hadn't seen the episode yet :(
I have no issue with the recaps of the episodes, it'd just be good if the actual titles didn't include spoilers :(:(
