CBS’ Amazing Race 8 web site shows elimination for unaired episode nine

Although CBS did not air a new episode of The Amazing Race 8 last night, the show’s web site was briefly updated this morning. According to a screenshot sent by an alert reader, the site once again showed an X next to a currently noneliminated team’s name.

While the site indicated that it had been updated for episode nine, that episode has yet to air. And although an X was next to a team that is still racing, it also showed a number next to the Paolos, indicating that they were still racing, even though they were eliminated during episode eight. The information also contracts the previous elimination possible spoiler, indicating that a different team is set to go next. Thus, this seems to just be a screw-up, rather than a spoiler.
