Okay, we have a winner for the leg -- and we have a unanimous vote for the last team Philiminated, so here is the next part:
Nat & Kat, together with their kayak partners, manage to get the kayaks upright quickly. As they do so, we hear confessionals.
Nat: That was a somewhat scary moment for us!
Kat: At least we were wearing our life vests.
The doctors are on their way again, as we cut back to the other three teams. Kisha & Jen are way out in front, thanks to their athleticism. Tammy & Victor are second but Victor is trying desperately to catch up to Kisha & Jen.
Tammy: You can't catch up, Victor!
Victor: Maybe we'll get real lucky.
Unfortunately, he tries so hard to catch up that he winds up tipping his kayak over!
Tammy: VICTOR! You okay?
After a bit, Victor and his fellow kayaker come up.
Victor: I'm okay now, sis.
As he & his fellow kayaker try to right their kayak, Uchenna & Joyce (along with their kayakers) pass Tammy & Victor. Once the kayak is righted, the siblings are on their way again. Further down the river, Nat & Kat are nearing the end of the route. The water is a bit calmer now. Finally, they reach the end. They help the other kayakers pull the kayaks up before rushing up towards the clue box.
Nat: "Make your way to the next PIT STOP!"
Phil: Teams must now head on over to Lake Rotorua, which gave its name to the city of Rotorua. Once there, teams must take a boat to the center of the lake and reach Mokoia Island. This island is the Pit Stop for this leg of the Race. The last team to check in here will be eliminated.
Kat: We'd better find out how to get there.
They ask their kayakers for the best location on Lake Rotorua to get a boat to the center of Mokoia Island. As they do so, we see Kisha & Jen arrive and find the clue box.
Jen: "Make your way to the next Pit Stop."
Kisha: "Mokoia Island on Lake Rotorua."
Jen: I see Nat & Kat leaving.
Kisha: Well, let's follow them.
And so the sisters follow the doctors up to their cars and then away from the falls. We cut back to the remaining two teams.
Joyce: Wow! This is awesome!
Uchenna: I'm loving the ride.
Meanwhile, Tammy & Victor are trying to catch up, but Victor wipes out once again!
Tammy: Victor! You're trying too hard!
Victor (sheepishly): Maybe you're right.
This causes them to waste more time and ensures that Uchenna & Joyce reach the clue box first.
Joyce: "Make your way to the next Pit Stop."
Uchenna: "Mokoia Island on Lake Rotorua."
The married couple is soon on their way. Finally, a waterlogged Victor and Tammy reach the clue box.
Tammy: "Make your way to the next Pit Stop: Mokoia Island on Lake Rotorua."
Victor: "Warning: the last team to check in WILL BE ELIMINATED!" Let's go!
The siblings scramble off. We cut back to the first two cars.
Nat: Kisha & Jen are behind us.
Kat: They must've been fast!
Jen: We're near the lake.
Kisha: And I'm so excited!
The cars pull up near the lake and the two all-female teams rush to two of four boats on the shore. Kisha & Jen get to a boat first, followed by Nat & Kat. It's a race to Mokoia Island in the center, but one team gets there and on the mat first:
Native Greeter: Welcome to Rotorua, New Zealand.
Jen: Thank you.
Phil: Kisha & Jen, you are team number one! (Kisha & Jen stare in shock, then they hug as we see Nat & Kat right behind them.) And I have some good news for you. As the winners of this leg of the Race, you have won a trip for two from Travelocity and you will be going to Bora Bora. (Kisha & Jen are stunned while Nat & Kat look slightly envious.) You will be spending seven days and six nights in Sunset Hill, a budget hotel nestled in a Zen garden with a little waterfall. Your bungalow will have a double bedroom in the mezannine and the lounge table can be turned into an auxillary bed. It also includes a kitchen and a bathroom. And you can rent bikes, scooters and motorboats, hike, go scuba diving, and take a tour of the island. And you can enjoy all this after the race.
Phil: Nat & Kat, come on up here. (The doctors run and join the sisters on the mat.) Nat & Kat, you are team number two.
Nat: We're thrilled with that.
Phil: And, you are two of the final three teams who will be competing for an extra one million dollars as well as to find out which team is the best of the best!
Kat: We're even more thrilled!
Both teams hug in delight. We then cut back to Uchenna & Joyce and Tammy & Victor.
Uchenna: We're getting there.
Victor: We can't be last! Not now!
Joyce: We're so close! Wow!
Tammy: Calm down, Victor! Be calm!
Then we see a team park their car and follow them all the way across the lake to the island, and then onto the mat.
Phil: Uchennna & Joyce, you are team number three!
Joyce: Team number three?
Phil: That's right. And you will be one of the final three teams that will be competing for another million dollars.
Uchenna: We're in the finals!
The married couple hug and kiss just before we see Tammy & Victor arrive at the lake. They see three cars there.
Victor: We're last! NOOO!!!!
Tammy: Let's just finish now.
They go across the lake, with Victor whining.
Victor: How can we be finished now?
Tammy (sighing): Just calm yourself.
When they reach the mat, Victor is muttering under his breath.
Native Greeter: Welcome to Rotorua, New Zealand.
Tammy (wearily): Thank you.
Phil: Tammy & Victor, you are the last team to arrive.
Victor (angrily): We know.
Phil: I'm sorry to tell you that you have been eliminated from the Race.
Victor: I'm even sorrier to hear that.
Tammy: But we had a great time anyway.
Victor: We fought hard. We never gave up.
Tammy: But some team has to come in fourth.
Victor: I just wish it was some other team!
Tammy: So do I. But we're still siblings.
We then see them do confessionals.
Victor: I guess I'll feel better eventually.
Tammy: He will. It'll just take some time.
Victor: But for now, I'm just disappointed.
Tammy: So am I. But we still have each other.
They hug as they walk off. We then see the Final 3 doing their confessionals as well.
Jen: We never thought we'd get this far.
Kat: I'm so happy we got to the finals.
Joyce: We're so lucky to be here.
Kisha: But here we are -- in the finals!
Nat: We could be two-time winners now!
Uchenna: I thought we'd be goners.
Jen: We could win back-to-back races!
Kat: We're going to use our brains to win.
Joyce: What we need is luck.
Kisha: We'll win the Race, trust us.
Nat: We're ready to reach the finish line!
Uchenna: So, bring it on now!
Okay, the penultimate Elimination Station will be up tomorrow.
