I am amazed that Dallas and his Mom kept going...if it had been me...I would have totally stopped and focused on getting my passport back thats just how I roll...I would have been obsessed....I wonder if the camera guy or production said off camera...just keep going, we will get your passports?

So sad that Toni and Dallas are off, they were doing so well until they lost their stuff.
I have to say I was really taken with the kindness of strangers who went into their pockets to help them out. That was wonderful to see.

I think I would've tried to find another taxi and someone who speaks english, and perhaps get on the radio about a missing bag for an American. Could've worked.

Sad to see them go. I suspect Nick and Starr will win this now, unless dumb luck ensues and the frat idiots win.

Too bad about Toni and Dallas, would have liked to see them win.

Nick and Starr certainly should win, based on race performance so far.

The older couple is pretty good, but makes more mistakes than Nick and Starr.

The frat idiots are a complete disaster. But they've got a 1 in 3 shot.

Is there a race lined up for the spring TV season? Sure hope so!

Wikipedia has an entry about The Amazing Race 14 -- filming was expected to begin last month. Cool.

I was thinking the exact same thing

I was thinking the same thing. But when Dallas and his mom started asking people for money they sure lucked out (unless they just showed the nice friendly people).

A real shame, the way things turned out. Those frat boys have not earned the right to be in the finals.

Toni and Dallas continued to run a good race even after the loss of the passports and I think they might have still placed if they hadn't had to go back to the apartment because they took the wrong form of transportation. That's what killed them, not the lack of money and passports. At least that's the way it was edited. I guess they might have been further behind then that since Phil went and found them rather than just delivering the bad news at the mat.

Anybody remember the first season where the third place finishers were informed that the race was over in some frozen arctic location? They were SO far behind!

I read an interview with them where Dallas talks more about what happened. He said it took him like 2 hours to get to his mom - not sure if anyone else had that much trouble as well. The article is here: Exclusive Interview: Toni and Dallas, from 'The Amazing Race 13'

Yes, I remember that first season! They were like a day behind everyone, I think! They got a note or something while they were still in Alaska, since Phil was obviously at the mat with the winners.

That has happened twice - team Guido (Joe and Bill) were a full day behind on Race 1 - they were still in Alaska when Rob and Brennan and Frank and Marguirite had crossed the finish line in Flushings, NY.

Also Race 4 when Chip and Reichen and John and Kelly had finished the race in Phoenix, David and Jeff were back in Hawaii about to move onto the detour. They were estimated to be 18 or so hours behind.

Both times as they arrived at the next route marker the third place teams were notified via a note in a standard TAR envelope that the race was over and whom had crossed the finish line first.

What a bummer it would be if on the show to receive word like that in a note, eh?

And no Toni and Dallas at the finish line...looks like they're trapped in Russia forever.

So glad to see Nick & Starr win! Definitely was too bad that Toni & Dallas couldn't be there at the end. I'm sure it probably took more than a day to figure out the whole passport situation.

I was wondering if there was going to be any kind of time penalty at the very end, because Starr kept holding onto one of the photos while they were doing that last challenge, and the clue said (I think) that you had to open them one at a time and put them back. The editors also made it look like Ken & Tina screwed up too, but ah well. It obviously didn't matter too much.

Ken & Tina putting their rings back on at the very end was so sweet.

I heard that the next season is currently filming, and will air starting on February 15th! Can't wait!
