When the contestants are challenged to launch watermelons in a giant slingshot to hit a target. Everything seems to be going fine for Claire and Brooke, who are both hosts on The Home Shopping Network.
Then, something goes terribly wrong. The watermelon doesn’t release in the slingshot, and returns to smack Claire right in the face. It literally looks like her head should have come right off.
Surprisingly, Claire is fine, but has a terrible headache. Of course, her partner says she has to finish the task. This is The Amazing Race people!
