Kelly & Shevonne struggled with both Detour options in the first leg, rapidly plummeting down the order as other teams passed them. By the time they finally completed the Detour, it had been hours since the last team checked in at the Pit Stop, leaving host Phil Keoghan to meet them on the course and confirming that they were the first team to be eliminated.
