PREVIOUSLY ON .. THE AMAZING RACE:
Phil: Twelve teams left Seattle on a race around the world for one million dollars. Teams objected to Sarah, artificial leg, pre-boarding. Once in Beijing, teams raced to Forbidden City, where a surprise elimination caught Bilal/Saeed. The next day, an arduous climb of the Great Wall left some hanging. Tyler/James arrived first. Married couple David/Mary were certain they were being eliminated, but Vipul/Arti came in last and were eliminated.
Ten teams still in the race. Who will be eliminated next?
