Canaan Smith, 26, and Mika Combs, 22, saw their Amazing Race dreams slide away when Mika, paralyzed by her fear of water and heights, couldn't take the plunge down the Leap of Faith waterslide in Dubai, allowing Harlem Globetrotters Flight Time and Big Easy to pass them. "I knew I had to go," Mika tells us. "I knew in my heart I would be OK, that I wouldn't die or anything, but it's six stories high and I just couldn't do it."

Self-professed "directionally challenged" couple Lance Layne, 41, and Kerri Morrione, 33, not only got lost in the desert, but all over Dubai, too, causing them to be the fifth team to get the boot on The Amazing Race . "In this day and age, you normally rely on a GPS," Lance tells TVGuide.com. "But Dubai was tricky. They definitely had a lot of highways intersected and there weren't a lot of clear signs. We knew it wasn't going to happen for us." What did happen was a kick to a snowman's head. Get the full story on the beheading, why the duo wouldn't have helped out other teams and more.

Since the TV ratings for Friday nights generally don't fluctuate all that much (CBS dramas always win...), the only statistic that I really about is how well (or, more accurately, poorly) Dollhouse performed. So, for some slightly encouraging news, in its 3rd week, Dollhouse was actually slightly - wait for it - UP in the ratings! This week's episode had 2.2 million viewers (up from 2 million last Friday). Eliza Dushku thanks you via Twitter. Another piece of good news: DVR ratings for the first week of the show finally came in and the Dollhouse numbers increased by 50% upon adding on DVR viewers from the 7 days following its live airing. You can check out the rest of Friday night's ratings over at Zap2it . On Sunday, sports dominated the night with NBC's Sunday Night Football winning both the 9 and 10PM timeslots. However, CBS won the night overall with a strong performance from NFL coverage and 60 Minutes at 7, as well as their usual Sunday night lineup, including 13.1 million viewers tuning in for The Amazing Race . The ABC dramas and Fox's animated comedy lineup were both down slightly for the night. Check out all of Sunday's ratings over at Zap2it .
Dating couple Marcy Maloy, 60, and Ron Shalita, 59, wanted to represent "older couples" on The Amazing Race, but their time was cut short Sunday after falling behind on a far-flung Detour. There was little disappointment, however, since the pair was eliminated in Vietnam, the same place Marcy's father was shot down and later rescued while serving in the Air Force during the Vietnam War. "It was so wonderful to be there," she tells TVGuide.com. "Obviously the war divided the north and the south, and we met people from the north and the south, and they were the most beautiful, smiling people." See what else the two had to say about their emotional exit, why they did not misunderstand the Detour clue and more. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed The Last Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Married yoga teachers Eric, 41, and Lisa Paskel, 43, have the dubious distinction of being the first team ever to get eliminated on The Amazing Race before it even began, coming up short on a needle-in-the-haystack, license-plate-finding task. "It just felt so strange because that's not what we signed on for, but it worked out for the best," Lisa tells TVGuide.com. How so? The pair subsequently went on their own "amazing adventure" and may soon be back on our TV screens with a new reality show. See what else they have to say about their short-lived stint on the series.
