Bells and belles: Amazing Race episode 7

Bells proved frustrating for belle Erika. She had difficulty counting the number of carillion bells, struggling with the task long after the other teams had completed it. Then she and husband Brian missed a vital part of the next clue which resulted in a long walk in uncomfortable wooden shoes.

Luck ran out for the Poker Girls this episode. While they were handed the answer to the first challenge of the leg by one of the brothers, they couldn't overcome their lack of strength to complete either of the Detour task options.

What do you think? Was it an unfair choice of tasks for an all girl team? I'm inclined to think that the tasks get harder further along the race and weaker teams get weeded out as a result. The girls had experienced many lucky breaks along the way which kept them in the race longer than I would have expected.
