I don't know why, but I was kind of surprised that almost none of the teams knew that the woman from the picture for the Royal Hotel was Jackie Kennedy. Felt bad to see Zev and Justin go...I guess the Harlem Globetrotters will be my new favorite team. The poker players have got to go.

My friend who was watching it with me thinks that the passport was lost for sure precisely because the camera didn't catch it. Usually when they lose a clue or anything else, the camera will clue the audience in. When they lost it, nobody noticed including the camera crew.

It will be a bit of a pain, but they'll probably be able to work things out at the U.S. embassy. I usually like to travel with a photocopy of my passport that I keep seperately from the passport in case I lose my passport. Having the photocopy helps expedite things at the embassy from what I've heard.

You may be right there.

My friends who live in Australia & who visited this summer kept a photocopy of their passport papers as well.

I'm sure CBS has contingencies for this kind of thing -- CBS probably works with the embassy on the player's behalf. They're not gonna leave him stranded there.

What a sad way to be eliminated.

And lets thank CBS for ruining that during the preview from the previous week. It would have come as a shock to us all, but no, they had to spill it during the preview.

There's been one couple it seems each series who have misplaced or lost their passports. WTF? I never let mine out of my sight when I travel outside the states. I practically sleep with it clutched in my hands.

I also noted the leak in the previews. Damn networks need to be more careful with the editing of their previews and trailers for those of us who prefer to wait and be surprised! Sometimes I'll change channels or turn away at the point at the end of shows when they show up coming clips for that reason....I'd rather be surprised!

Turns out that when they were doing the 'monkey impersonation' challenge upon arrival; they went into another temple. That temple was pitch black and as such Justin puilled out his head lamp. Sev's passport was in that bag and fell out. After elimination they went to the US embassy and the passport was handed in. It is shown as part of the online series 'Elimination Station' that follows the teams booted off the race -

I was glad to see the obnoxious fighting engaged couple get eliminated tonite. I enjoyed seeing parts of Dubai. I'd love to visit there.

Thanks for sharing that Video. I feel so bad for the guys for having lost the passport. Looks like a nice place they get to kick back in while the show plays out tho. Nice vacation!

If you are directionally illiterate, the chances of you having success on the Amazing Race...not so good.

All I could think was, please don't let this be a non-elimination leg.

Me too. I had a feeling they'd be out fairly quickly, and I'm glad to have them off my TV. I hate people who bicker and whine and are generally obnoxious, like those two were.
