The dating couple came in last Sunday night on "The Amazing Race." But since it was a non-elimination leg of the race, they are still in the game, although they will have to perform an extra task next week to keep their chances alive.

The race through St. Petersburg gave contestants a taste of Russian life and culture with challenges that involved identifying classical Russian piano composition or scenes from a Russian movie classic and planting potatoes while dressed as a Babushka.

Dating couple Jill and Thomas were first across the finish line and won a trip for two to Sao Paulo, Brazil.
