& # 39; We were too polite! & # 39; Amazing Race nuns regret not fighting harder against rivals after nurses gave them the last hurdle in South Korea
The nuns at the Amazing Race were sent home in Tuesday's episode after being overtaken by their rivals just seconds before the South Korea pit stop.
Judy and Therese graciously accepted the defeat at the time, but now say they are sorry they didn't have to fight harder for their chance to win the $ 250,000 prize.
The nuns told it news.com.au they didn't know the pit stop was that close and were probably too polite to let nurses Femi and Nick pass by to meet host Beau Ryan just 10 seconds before them.

We're out of here: Judy (left) and Therese (right) know that the nuns were eliminated on Tuesday after being overtaken by nurses Femi and Nick who left them in last place
& # 39; We were just so polite! We were like "come on, come on," said Judy.
Judy said afterwards that she could have blocked them on the stairs in a somewhat unusual move for the couple.
& # 39; I hope everyone notices that we have just been defeated by 10 seconds by two huge, muscular overbuild beautiful boys, who were much younger than us, & # 39; Therese added.
The duo was loved by the Australians because of their refreshingly cheerful and tight character, which sometimes turned out to be their downfall.
A controversial moment was during a dumpling competition in Korea, where Bondi influenced Sid and Ash from the unsuspecting nuns.
Despite the lagging behavior, Therese said the situation was hilarious.

& # 39; Many of our friends and people in Australia are furious that (Sid and Ash) have stolen our dumpling, but it was just very funny. It's just part of the fun of the game, & Therese said.
Judy and Therese were seen on a video posted on Instagram as they unfolded cheating but still endorsed the #weforgiveyou clip.
The nuns said they always had God on their side during the race, and Judy noticed she prayed that the two would not fight.
The Amazing Race Australia will continue on Channel 10 next Monday at 7.30
