Money Brings Out the Best and Worst of Contestants on 'The Amazing Race' (VIDEO)

Money is rarely a deciding factor on 'The Amazing Race' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS), but it played a huge factor in this week's installment. One particular cab ride proved incredibly expensive for many teams, costing them virtually all of their money. Ernie and Cindy, who didn't convert their money from US dollars, didn't even seem to try to figure out how much money the driver needed. They simply threw $100 at him and assumed it was good. Unfortunately, the fare was closer to $150 US. Rather than pay it in good grace, they both behaved rather horribly, telling him he was a terrible drive and acting like the victims in the whole thing. //www.aoltv.com/2011/10/24/money-brings-best-worst-contestants-amazing-race-video/

'The Amazing Race' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS) made its way to Thailand this week, where teams got a chance to give back to the region -- kind of -- after the 2004 tsunami ravaged the region. Particularly, the coral was devastated. So teams had an option to help rebuild the by building a coral nursery. Of course, the other option was helping set up chairs and umbrellas on the beach which helps ... the toursim industry? Both tasks proved more challenging than most teams expected, with twins Liz and Marie perhaps struggling the most with their umbrellas. Wind and umbrellas does not make a good combination. //www.aoltv.com/2011/10/17/amazing-race-task-gives-back-to-thailand-after-tsunami-video/

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 TVGuide.com. "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 . //www.tvguide.com/News/Amazing-Race-Kaylani-Lisa-1038581.aspx?rss=breakingnews
