NEW YORK (CBS) A bountiful buffet in Hong Kong proved to be too much for Claire and Vicki in Sunday night's non-elimination leg of "The Amazing Race"

In this roadblock, one member of each team had to search through a restaurant buffet table to find fake food. The catch was they had to eat whatever they picked up. While some teams completed it easily, these two women got violently ill before finally completing the task.

Nick even stood outside the bathroom door asking a retching Vicki whether she wanted to give up.

She didn't and gamely returned to the buffet table to find the fake food. Later, Nick did give up in the marine search for sampan with a specific registration number and opted to take a six-hour penalty rather than complete the task.

Since no one was eliminated this leg, the two will continue, but next week they leave the pit stop six hours after the others and have an extra task to perform.

Nat and Kat were the first across the finish line on this leg and won a trip to Rio de Janiero. Jill and Thomas were next and Brooke and Claire came in before Nick and Vicki.
