Rachel, 34, and Elissa, 32 -- who raced as sisters from Van Nuys, CA, and Las Vegas, NV, respectively -- were ousted from the Race to win $1 million after arriving at the eighth Pit Stop at the gardens of the Grand Hotel in Giessbach, Switzerland in last place.
Former Big Brother houseguests Nicole Franzel and Victor Arroyo began the leg in last place, as they had departed the Zurich Pit Stop at 6:05AM.
Nicole hoped for an "equalizer," and she got just that since the gates at their next location in Ballenberg didn't open until 7AM the next morning. All the teams were therefore on a level playing field.
During their time to rest, Rachel and Elissa attempted to repair their relationship with Leo and Jamal. The girls told the guys that they had warned Nicole and Victor they might be U-Turned but never threw Leo and Jamal's names under the bus.
Rachel explained they wanted to help Nicole and Victor out because of their "Big Brother pact," but that pact no longer existed.
Rachel and Elissa wanted to prove they were trustworthy, and Leo and Jamal acknowledged it was okay and people make mistakes. However, Leo was still prepared to U-Turn Rachel and Elissa at the next opportunity.
Phil explained that since Switzerland believes they have the oldest democracy in the world, it seemed only fitting the teams should begin the leg with "a U-Turn vote."
The teams were therefore instructed to choose one team to U-Turn one at a time -- out loud and in front of each other.
Each of the seven teams got to vote once -- in an order determined by random draw -- until two teams were picked to complete both sides of the upcoming Detour. Phil also announced there were no more non-elimination legs left in the Race.
Rachel and Elissa chose Colin and Christie for strategic purposes, and then Nicole asked Victor to choose after whispering in his ear, and he picked Leo and Jamal. Nicole was upset over Victor's choice, as she alleged she had wanted a different team to do it.
Colin and Christie picked Rachel and Elissa, and then Leo and Jamal selected Colin and Christie.
Becca and Floyd chose to U-Turn Colin and Christie with "no hard feelings," after which Tyler and Colin picked Nicole and Victor since they had finished the last leg in last place.
And finally, Chris and Bret chose Rachel and Elissa because they weren't close to the girls.
Rachel wasn't happy the teams were making them go up against Colin and Christie. She thought it was "a personal move" rather than a game move, and Rachel reminded everyone a million dollars was on the line.
Leo and Jamal regretted not U-Turning Nicole and Victor since they already had an extra Speed Bump task to complete. And Nicole later revealed she had wanted to U-Turn Rachel and Elissa.
Regardless, Colin and Christie and Rachel and Elissa were chosen for the U-Turn as a result.
The Detour presented the teams were two possible options: "Make Hay" or "Cow Festival."
Using an old scythe, "Make Hay" required one team member to cut a layer of grass, while the other raked up behind them. When the grass was properly stacked, they'd be rewarded their next clue.
"Cow Festival" required the teams to dress up a cow and then lead them to a party where they would be judged.
Having arrived last in the previous leg, Nicole and Victor had to complete their Speed Bump task at this location of taking down and folding 26 flags representing the 26 states of Switzerland.
The teams who chose to cut grass and rake hay were Leo and Jamal, Bret and Chris, Tyler and Korey, and Becca and Floyd.
Rachel and Elissa attempted the cow task first, and so did Colin and Christie.
After finishing their Speed Bump, Nicole and Victor opted to take on the cow task.
It turned out the cows weren't cooperating and so the hay task appeared to be easier, although the teams really had to work and sweat for their next clue.
Becca and Floyd completed the Detour in first place and were instructed to drive themselves to Oberschwanden to find their next clue.
Bret and Chris finished the task in second place, and they were then followed by Tyler and Korey and Leo and Jamal.
Rachel and Elissa completed their first side of the Detour next but realized they had lost their clue. (The girls had left it on the table at the cow task).
Colin and Christie finished Part 1 of the Detour next, and then Nicole and Victor finished the Detour and were able to officially move on in fifth place.
Rachel and Elissa asked Colin and Christie if they could see their clue, but the life partners refused and didn't feel bad about it. Rachel and Elissa therefore just tried to copy Colin and Christie's actions.
