The Amazing Race - 10/05 Show

Jackie's TV Blog, Amazing Race, TAR

Argh, it's no surprise, but the show is delayed here in the NYC area due to football. Once it starts, this entry will be updated with major events and perhaps a random thought or two as it airs. Meanwhile, enjoy Zoetawny's new TAR graphic and cheer on your team in the comments!

Finally it started here, 8:30 PM ET.

Okay, I deem both Terence and Tina utterly annoying.

I feel bad for Sarah, but don't mind that Terence didn't follow the signs to the taxi. Kelly and Christy digging for a container on the Beach It is a hoot!

Pit Stop Order
1. Ken and Tina - Each won an off-road vehicle
2. Mark and Bill
3. Terence and Sarah
4. Aja and Ty
5. Toni and Dallas
6. Nick and Starr
7. Kelly and Christy
8. Andrew and Dan
9. Marisa and Brooke
10. Anthony and Stephanie - Philiminated

Onto AR! I'm hoping that Stephanie and Anthony won't spend all their time bickering!! Laurie, maybe if we both thing good thoughts they'll filter thru to them. Oh wait! That won't work. The show has already been filmed and is in the can!

PDX Granny said...

Wow!! I'm first!! I'll be checking back later tho, since the show doesn't start for 3 hours here.

Right now I need to go feed the grandkid!

RBennie said...

1. Becky, Monty924 & DLA (Mark & Bill)
2. Rbennie, Sydney & Orkmommy (Terence & Sarah)
3. Delee & Petals (Toni & Dallas)
4. Margo & Sue (Kelly & Christy)
5. Karen in MD/DC & Jennasmom (Ken & Tina)

9. Laurie & PDX Granny (Anthony & Stephanie)
10. Clementine & Caroline (Marisa & Brooke)

Now if the show would just start, LOL

Laurie said...

Do you think we can just call them Tony and Steph? I mean, they are our team so we should be able to call them what we want, right? Can't wait to see who they are. I have no memory of them from last week at all!

Laurie said...

Good evening, rbennie! Let's get this race started!

sue said...

One game ended and CBS brought in the end of another game. Now 60 minutes is on. That is Central Time Zone 7:21. Which means, I was going to actually be able to watch TAR tonight, but will not with the delay. Usual Sunday programing time, I know, but still. : )

RBennie said...

Hi Laurie and Granny. I hope my teammates Sydney & Orkmommy will be joining us also. Go Terence & Sarah!

Petals said...

Hey guys! Can I just say (before the race starts) that I am SOOOO HAPPY that O.J. is finally going to jail!

Laurie said...

Oh yeah, Petals. I feel the same way. 13 years too late, but off to jail and I hope he stays there forever!

RBennie said...

Okay Andy Rooney is on, so 60 mins. should be ending in a couple of minutes.

Petals said...

K, so I'm not super excited about my assigned team, mom & son, but I will root for them. So... GO MOM & SON (Toni/Dallas, I think?) And I love the gamer boys, too. They seem smart...

Sydney said...

Wow Zoe -- you just continue to outdo yourself!

Delee said...

Its a go here...finally!

RAHRAH for Toni and Dallas/Petals and me

RBennie said...

Yay its on

Petals said...

Being bi- or even tri-lingual seems to give a team a guge advantage. A coupla teams have that going for them.

Delee said...

Grrrrrr, we wait all this time and a mini backflash and more ADS...

Becky said...

RBennie said...
Hi guys! I'm live blogging tonight, Yay! Here is the list of the teams.

1. Becky, Monty924 & DLA (Mark & Bill)

Thanks for doing this. Okay Monty924, let's kick some booty.

Petals said...

Yes, I said "guge" - HAHAHAHAHA.

RBennie said...

My guy Terence is weird! What is his problem

Petals said...

whhhaahhh... what a baby~!

RBennie said...

Ken & Tina picked a strange form of marriage counseling.

Petals said...

How many times can the divorcees remind us that they are ,.. uhm.. DIVORCED!? Get over it, girls!

becky said...

Sorry, DLA -- didn't notice your name. That's what happens when you get old and blind.

Come kick some booty with us.

Clementine said...

Petals dear, perhaps this will inspire you to root for your boy...

Dallas (naked but censored)

Sydney said...

woah, how did I miss that fight with tears that my team Terrance and Sarah had last week.

Oh RBennie and ORkmommy, I am not happy with that whole blow on my not bleeding head. I resisted saying I have something else you can blow with that attitude baby Terrance.

DRAMA!

RBennie said...

Well aren't they pleasant

Petals said...

Un-married couple are mean-spirited. No wonder he cheated - she's a shrew!

Sydney said...

too bad Sue! Darn

Sydney said...

Petals said:

How many times can the divorcees remind us that they are ,.. uhm.. DIVORCED!? Get over it, girls!

Agreed!

RBennie said...

Okay I officially hate Tina

Laurie said...

"I resisted saying I have something else you can blow with that attitude baby Terrance."

Bwahahahahaha!! Good one Sydney!

Sydney said...

gross, she said would you like AMAERICAN candy... this is not a refugee camp filled with children SOuthern Belles!

Sydney said...

ooh goody, can someone put Terrance in his place? I am rooting against my own guy, sorry Rbennie/ORk

I don't think Ork is with us due to no internet at home.

Petals said...

Oh... jeeminy Clementine! Thank you... whew. Yes.. He has assets. Wow. Hm.. geesh.. WOW.

Clementine said...

Go Southern Belles! (err, I guess)

Yes, if you have any troubles, cute smiles and candy will get you far in life... @@@@

Caroline, I think I'm gonna start referring to our team as "Cute Smiles and Candy". It's the perfect name for them.

Petals said...

So Tina the shrew has an attitude that matches her outside - cold & hard & pinched. She's a hen pecker. Shrew. Sorry to whomever has to root for them.

joy n said...

Terence, grow up! Sarah, move far away!

Clem, that's some shot of Dallas! DOL's all here and accounted for?

Sydney said...

Clem, that pic of Dallas... your detective skills rock.

OK, Terrance apologized? And then he's saying I smile a lot.. sounded so immature even when he was being nice.

Petals said...

What's DOL?

Sydney said...

Wow, look at those palm trees, how they are placed on the beach. It's beautiful.

They are now appreciating how good we all have it, no matter how bad we have it. THAT"S WHY TRAVEL IS GOOD PEOPLE!

Anonymous said...

As much as I love TAR, even more than Big Brother, I HATE that CBS chooses to air it before January aka "Football Season". 9 times out of 10, at least, the game is going to go past 7 PM Eastern thus delaying TAR. @@ It is not so much that it causes me any trouble at that point, BUT, it does screw up the rest of my night.

Laurie said...

San Diego's designated DOL present and accounted for!

I want to see the show NOW, not 2 hours from now. *stomping feet*

Petals said...

Yea tan? I saw his butt? How old are the blondes?

Sydney said...

We're gonna get tan -- say the SB's --

Do you think they only cut in the things they say that sound stereotypical?

Laurie said...

Petals:

DOL = dirty old lady

Sydney said...

muscle and mental acuity? Is that my team?

joy n said...

Zoetawny, love your new TAR graphic.

Terence is up. He's down. He's up. he's.........

Sydney said...

oh my god, those containers, I want to cry now. It would be horrible to do that. WHo do we think will choose that?

Petals said...

Ooohh.. great challenge...

RBennie said...

I don't know how you guys can watch and blog at the same time, this is tough.

Sydney said...

Oh, the comic geeks do Dock it, and in fact, that might be just perfect for them.

Sydney said...

SB's are doing dock it too. Entertainment ahead folks!

Petals said...

Oh, thanks Laurie! I definitely fit that description, haha

Sydney said...

Oh, that's great, the belles went to Beach it by mistake and probably saved their own asses!

joy n said...

It pays to be a nerd at times.

Petals said...

SHUT UP DIVORCEES!!!!! You sound like Desperate ex-Housewives of Souregrape County!

Sydney said...

Rbennie, I can;t watch and blog. I don;t get to read anyone's comments til the commercials.

Petals said...

No doubt the divorcees will blame their loss on their ex-husbands...

RBennie said...

thanks Sydney - thats a good method. Our peeps are gonna lose their lead right here.

Clementine said...

Okay, so far Sydney and I are embarrassed by our teams behavior (SBs and newly dating). Anybody else?

I like Nick/Starr better this week than last. Divorcees are annoying. Comic book geeks will go far because they don't get flustered. Mom/son work well together. Ken and Tina are on the fast track to divorce.

Sydney said...

ROTFLMAO about the ice cream retort by Sarah

RBennie said...

Oh man what morons!

Petals said...

I hope Toni can keep up with Dallas for the long haul...

joy n said...

Ice cream? Oh, Terence, you're making it so easy to pick on you.

RBennie said...

Can we get Sarah a new partner please!

joy n said...

So far, there's not much going on with Aja and Ty.

RBennie said...

Nick & Starr seem like the team to beat at this point.

Petals said...

Joy - At least Aja & Ty aren't acting like fools or stepping on anyone elses toes...

Petals said...

Hey - dats my team! YEAH!

joy n said...

That's true, Petals. At least, so far.

Petals said...

I rreeeallllyyy like Sarah. I hate that she lost her lead.

Sydney said...

Storm's kicking up. Terrance does not handle stress well.

The comic book geeks look like those Mythbusters guys don't they?

Sydney said...

funny petalz

Sydney said...

They just read of one after the other of those destinations to the guy until he gave them a clue???????

RBennie said...

That was smart of Mark & Bill. Too bad Tina saw what he was doing.

Delee said...

Southern girls are used to doing mission work with their churches, hence, handing out candy! LOL

Sydney said...

SOrry -- it wasn't the SOuthern Belle;'s that messed up on the beach it, docket, it was the divorcees! Apologies --er, for that one comment at least

RBennie said...

The divorcees are a special kind of stupid aren't they? LOL

Petals said...

Wow - Who has the divorcees in the pool? Ouch - they make the Belles look like rocket scientists.

joy n said...

Didn't those girls just say they have learned to read the clues?

Sydney said...

Rbennie said
The divorcees are a special kind of stupid aren't they? LOL

OK, I'm fully DYING over that one RB

Sydney said...

they need to make a deal with one of the teams to split the taxi's they have waiting if they were smart.

Clementine said...

Mr. Sensitivo! LOL

Ooowww, the divorcees are not the sharpest knives in the drawer, eh?

joy n said...

Are most of these people NOT reading their clues?

Becky said...

I love being a nerd! They are smart and they are very funny! To bad the shrew and her husband passed them. He isn't bad. I can see why he cheated on her.

Petals said...

How'd the divorcees jump to a 3rd place? Since they dumped the taxi they may have to take more familiar transportation: the short bus.

Delee said...

There sure have been many blunders this week...in the long run makes for a better show.

RBennie said...

These guys are forgetting the most important clue - don't overthink it.

monty924 said...

YAY! Mark and Bill second and could have been 1st? I hope I saw that right. Just got here so I have some catching up to do.

RBennie said...

Whew, Sarah and whimpy made up some of the time they lost.

RBennie said...

Thanks Sydney, I was rather proud of that one myself, LOL

joy n said...

Whimpy? Love that!

Sydney said...

OK how bad am I? Having joyfully invited myself into the porn gutter with Clem's little jems when she finds them, I took what you said Petals (short bus) to be the film by my boy John Cameron Mitchelll........

Delee said...

OH NO new tribes in Survivor this week

joy n said...

Whoa! Picking new tribes on Survivor already!

Petals said...

GO TONI & DALLAS!!!!

Delee said...

OK Petals our team is 5 YEA

Petals said...

^5 everyone!

Sydney said...

Oh I'd like to see Terrance catch up to Sarah as a "class act"

Petals said...

He didn't go back...wow. jerk

Sydney said...

When the cam brother hell boy told the frat boy he'd be back when he go the clue, My husband said "yeah right, check's in the mail bud."

RBennie said...

Did the divorcees ever get a taxi?

Sydney said...

that would be spelled GEMS not jems

joy n said...

Aja and Ty came in 4th. We're still in there, Jackie!

Clementine said...

I like Aja and her favorite phrase "Aw, hell."

Nick is quite the ass to his sister.

Go Cute Smiles and Candy!

joy n said...

Aja and Ty came in 4th. We're still in there, Jackie!

Petals said...

Syd - nope. My short bus reference wasn't nearly that cool. Just "little...yellow..diff'rent".

Sydney said...

wow, frat boys beat the belles

Delee said...

So sorry Laurie and PDX Granny

Petals said...

Awww - I liked them, sorta.

RBennie said...

Bye Bye Anthony & Stephanie. Sorry Laurie & PDX Granny!

Sydney said...

he has his looks.

Sydney said...

oh, um, and Stephanie.

He's a charmer.

Sydney said...

clementine said...
I like Aja and her favorite phrase "Aw, hell."

ME TOO

becky said...

YAY! Mark and Bill second and could have been 1st? I hope I saw that right. Just got here so I have some catching up to do.

Yes, you saw that correctly. They were even gracious when they had first yanked out from under them. They are likable.

Oh, I need to apologize for the "I can see why he cheated" comment. There is no excuse for being unfaithful in a marriage. I should never have said what I did.

joy n said...

The best looking couple this season are gone. Sorry PDX Granny and Laurie.

RBennie said...

They just never seemed to have that drive and determination you need for this game. You can't be laid back and expect to win. Sydney & Orkmommy we need to work on manning up our boy Terence. I love Sarah though.

Petals said...

Becky - I said the same thing about the cheating. Don't feel bad. We know it's all for blog, and not meant for mean in general.

Clementine said...

Well, Caroline, we made it across the finish line anyway. Next week let's shoot for "not last" again! LOL

Laurie said...

What? They are out before I even know who they really are? Sad, sad, sad!

Mark and Bill, my San Diego Geeks, are in so I'll join Becky, Monty and DLA ... I have my own pompoms and everything!

rbennie, "special kind of stupid" is the best!

Sydney said...

Sorry PDX and Laurie

I like Sarah too RBennie

Sydney said...

I think it's eerie that PDX has the first post talking about her team. Watch out next week who is in that position!!!!! :-)

Laurie said...

Well, PDX, we need to drown our sorrows in something tasty! *cheers*
May our friendship last much longer than our team!!

becky said...

Mark and Bill, my San Diego Geeks, are in so I'll join Becky, Monty and DLA ... I have my own pompoms and everything!

Laurie, come on in. With the four of us, we will be hard to beat.

Hummm, have room on your Survivor team for someone who didn't sign up?

monty924 said...

Becky and Dla, our boys rocked it! Now I have to wait and watch the episode on CBS sometime tomorrow... I forgot to set the DVR, grrr.

The comic book boys are here to stay, I'm tellin ya! Laurie, welcome aboard and hop right on the Mark and Bill train. The more the merrier. :)

RBennie said...

Well I survived my first live blogging. It was very hectic, but fun. I've never hit the refresh button so much!

Laurie said...

Hey, Becky, you are welcome to join our Survivor team ... but you might want to join Nana or one of the others who don't have a partner.

Matty Whitmore - RJM in SC
Michelle Chase - lynn1
Paloma Soto-Castillo - Tessa
Suzie Smith - Nana in the NW

Your choice!

Laurie said...

oops! I included people who are already off the show!

I think these are the 3 teams left who only have one person on his/her team.

Matty Whitmore - RJM in SC
Randy Bailey - tbc
Suzie Smith - Nana in the NW

hahahahaha ... my wv was owwlap ... sounds like something from Survivor!

PDX Granny said...

Laurie, it's time to cheer on our team!! I've read some of the comments, but I don't want to know the outcome ahead of time, so I stopped.

Now if they'd just stop with the intro's and commercials and get on with the show!!

PDX Granny said...

Terrance is a real jerk!! I'm so glad he's Sarah's problem and not mine.

Becky said...

Laurie said...
Hey, Becky, you are welcome to join our Survivor team ... but you might want to join Nana or one of the others who don't have a partner.

Okay, who wants the old lady from Texas on their team?

Laurie said...

Terence is a jerk, isn't he? Sarah needs to heed what the divorcee said, that he reminds her of her controlling EX!

The blondes mixing up their assignments and digging in the sand was funny!

I love how cool the SD geeks are. They are smart and logical.

Laurie said...

LOL at the lack of direction reading.

Hello? Lesson number one: Read the directions ... seems to be a difficult concept for some folks!

Laurie said...

Sorry, Elaine, we are outta the race. However, we had a loser team ... they had to be losers to be the weakest link on that chain!

Anonymous said...

Hey, Karen in MD/DC! We were in first!
Although I can't say that I really like Ken & Tina.

Jennasmom

meb said...

lynn1...we're still in the running. I too thought that Nick was a little condesending to his sister, but... they're still our team.

I can't watch and blog too. My computer is in another room...no laptop. And, I'm in to the other shows, thus the reason for the late post now. The tivo was hectic ecause I had to keep going forward and recording other shows to make sure I got all of mine because of the late start.

I was LOL at the divorcees, especially since they just said they were going to "read" the clues extra carefully forward. Of course they are...

Great graphic Zoetawny...

PDX Granny said...

Laurie, cheers to you too!! I have no doubt our friendship will last much longer that our team!

I looked them up before the show started tonight and was wondering just how much I'd like them. I liked that they had their eyes opened about just how well off they are compared to so many. I'm hoping that including his looks in all he has was a joke!

All in all, I think it was a pretty good show. I think I like the SD boys best at this point.

dla said...

becky and monty924, we have a rockin' team!!! I LIKE our guys!!

Laurie, come on in. The more the merrier!! :)

Good show! And may I add that the Divorcees gave a whole new meaning tonight? lol

rbennie, I actually snorted out loud when I read your "special kind of stupid" commnent... I am still giggling!

GO MARK AND BILL!!! GEEKS ROCK!

Donna in AL said...

I am with Rhennie or whomever said it is hard to blog and watch. It was hard for me last night just to watch with little ones in front of the TV!

Nana our guys came in 8th but at least that was not last! I can only remember Andrew because that is my youngest son's name or I would not know which ones to pull for! (grr ended in a preposition) BTW, how is your mom?

Ok that Wimpy guy lost his chance to be gay...he is so dramatic!!

Anonymous said...

Yeah Jennasmom! I missed the show last night - couldn't get my husband to leave his aunt and uncles house on time so I could watch TV! and I forgot to set the DVR. lol Sounds like it was a close finish so I will try to catch it online! Go team!

Karen in MD/DC

RBennie said...

Good morning all.

Great show last night. I know Terence is my guy and I have to root for him, but I have never seen a man that dramatic who wasn't gay! I couldn't believe he was so upset that Sarah was talking to other people instead of him. My husband's greatest wish is that there is always somebody else around for me to talk to so I don't bug him to death, LOL. Tina is a real "piece of work". What was up with her going around telling everybody that she got them a bigger plane (which was the strangest thing I've ever heard of an airline doing) and don't let me get started on those divorcees, the exes must have won the brains in the settlements. How did they finally get a cab anyway, I missed that part.

meb said...

rbennie... "the exes must have won the brains in the settlement". ROFLMBO!!! Too Funny!

OFF TOPIC! Just gotta tell everyone. My hysteroscopy results are in and they are BENIGN!
PRAISE GOD!

Today is my second round of Chemo (remember this is precautionary because of my colon thingy... My body is cancer free!!!) God is Good!

I am flying high right now... so sorry if I went on and on!

RBennie said...

Great news MEB! I'm thrilled for you. Its really nice to hear good news for a change. Hang in there with the chemo. I recall that you tolerated the first round very well.

meb said...

YEP, YEP, YEP... It's gonna be a breeze... I insist on it!!! Smile.

Margo said...

Great news Meb- I wish you guys would stop picking on my divorcees. They are just doing that stuff for entertainment purposes. No one could be that stupid - so many times in a row- could they? I was very worried when they were looking for the container. The native people were seeing "stupid American" right in front of their eyes. I was soo embarassed for my team. At least they were not last!

Margo

Donna in AL said...

That is great news MEB! I think your attitude is the best thing you have going for you when it comes to chemo. Keep it up!!

meb said...

rbennie.. missed your question... the divorcees'cab was sitting on the lot the whole time, they just didn't walk around anywhere to find it. When they did see it, the driver appeared to be just hanging out waiting to see how long it would take them to figure it out.

Sorry Margo, but they really are not too bright!

Laurie said...

Yeah, meb, so glad to hear you are cancer free. You are such a positive person and your attitude is fantastic.

Margo, I'm afraid those divorcees really are that clueless. So sad!

rbennie, you were on a roll last night!

RBennie said...

What can I say Laurie, sometimes my wit sparkles and sometimes it fizzles, LOL. Last night was a good night. There was so much raw material to work with.

joy n said...

Meb, congratulations on the great results. What good news for us to hear. You are an inspiration!

dla said...

meb, that is just terrific news!!

Best of luck with your chemo today... You will be in my thoughts.

XOXOXO

meb said...

You guys are so nice. Thanks for the cheers!

Caroline said...

Clementine said...
"Caroline, I think I'm gonna start referring to our team as "Cute Smiles and Candy". It's the perfect name for them."

Sounds like a good name to me. I'm getting a kick that they keep coming in almost last but not getting eliminated. They may not be smart, but at least they seem kind...so I'm certainly gonna root for them to have fun on the race.

I liked that Mark & Bill picked the shipping containers...I would have done the same thing. Tedious, but easy and much quieter knowing everyone else would go to the boats.

Loving Ty & Aja. The comment Ty made about the SB's and their faces getting red with exertion and then Aja "We don't turn red". Hysterical. Plus they also seem smart and kind.

Best quote of the ep was Anthony when he said that if anyone in the country could fix a car they could make a fortune.

Also, don't count Terence out of being a gay man yet. He seemed thrilled when Ken kissed him and got all flustered and blushed. If I was Sarah, I'd be very concerned after that.
