The Amazing Race - "Rooting Around in People's Mouths Could Be Unpleasant"

Jackie's TV Blog, Amazing Race, TAR


Argh. Due to golf, the show is way delayed once again. 60 Minutes began at 7:39 PM ET here in the NYC area. So I don't expect TAR to begin until around 8:40 PM ET (or so). Once it starts, this post will be updated with the major events and my full review of the show will be posted over on TV Squad. Everyone is welcome to join in with comments!

8:38 PM ET -- we're starting!

Pit Stop
1. Margie and Luke - won a trip to Puerto Rico
2. Jaime and Cara
3. SORT OF Kisha and Jen, but they can't be checked in without their travel documents which they left at the Roadblock. They must go get them and have no money.
3. Tammy and Victor
4. Mark and Michael -- But they have a four hour penalty (two two hour penalties) for using their personal possessions to pay for cabs.
4. Kisha and Jen
5. Mark and Michael - 3:10 penalty time, got checked in. It's a non-elimination leg, so they're still in the race. The time remaining on their penalty and the speed bump await them in the next leg.

Anonymous said...

When my daughter was in college, they began accepting American Sign Language as a "foreign language".

Oh, those rude, rude girls. I think I am beginning to finally find someone to dislike this season.

mammaroos said...

Are you signing your name under the Name/URL?

Karen said...

nope but I just changed it lol i wasnt paying attention

Jackie said...

It looks like Cara and Jaime are the only ones taking their bags. I don't think Margie and Luke did and the others definitely didn't.

Karen said...

do you all think tonight will be another non elemination round i think its time again

Jackie said...

Ah, now Tammy and Victor have their bags

becky said...

Good the brother and sister went back to get their stuff. That may make up time for them.

Did Mom and Luke get their belongings?

Karen said...

Where did they leave there bags at I am not watching this yet

also isnt there a website I can watch this now instead of waiting till 8 my time

monty924 said...

I'm late to the party. I'll take a margarita on the rocks, with salt please. I'm completely egged out, but I have some left over easter candy. :)

becky said...

Wouldn't you know the Rudies would be one of the teams who got their bags! Darn!!

Jackie said...

I see Margie and Luke have their bags, so it's Mark/Michael and the sisters without them

Sydney said...

Becky -- I am egged out... unless we have Reeces Peanut butter or Cadbury Eggs... which I BROUGHT for everyone!

The lost packs are making me nervous!

Karen said...

Welcome to the Party Monty Becky has teh margaritas I have some ham and creamcheese rollups and some devil eggs lmao

Karen said...

OH OH Sydney I have Resess eggs in the freezer (___) here ya go

monty924 said...

What's with the teeth? they did that or something similar last season. I see Jamie and Cara are still being snots this week. Argh!

becky said...

YUK!!! Them trying to find the right teeth for the correct person reminds me of the time my grandmother, who had begun to have dementia, got mad at the nursing home. That night she took her pillow case and went from room to room collecting dentures soaking in glasses. The nursing staff were not happy campers the next day.

Karen said...

Jackie is there a website that we ppl on the west coast can watch TAR befor it comes on out here on the west coast??

monty924 said...

Reeses, of course I have some. Their my all time favorite and two of my little neices are alergic to peanut butter... so the more for me. I'm so bad.

becky said...

Good. I am glad that Margie and Luke have their bags.

Here are drinks for everyone. Thanks for not taking my chair.

Karen said...

Oh My Heck Becky I work at a residential home where the residents have alzheimer/dementia I can almost imagine one of my residents doing that lmao

Jackie said...

Karen - I know there used to be one, but I'm not sure if it's still around this season. Maybe one of the other party-goers here might know?

Anonymous said...

Thank goodness they gave them rubber gloves to handle those dentures.

monty924 said...

Okay, now I'm swapping back and forth between my two recordings and both were on commercial. Grrr.

Karen said...

TY Jackie I wasn't sure if there was one anymore

Becky thanks for the drink I needed it :)

monty924 said...

Justtvnuts or something like that is were most of the westies watch BB in summer. ??? I'm not sure what the url is though.

Sydney said...

I'm surprised the sisters have so little humor about the transvestites!

And that the redheads are actually having fun and being light for once...

And mom and son are #1 AGAIN!

monty924 said...

Yay, Margie and Luke. They are rocking out these wins this season.

becky said...

How many teams forgot their bags? Oh, boy! Margie and Luke are number one.

monty924 said...

Wow, my girls are team 2.

Sydney said...

phil gave a snarky look as the redheads celebrated their arrival on the mat... loved that.

KAren said...

Monty I found it ty ty ty I can watch Apprentice befor hand too ty again for the website watching tar right now :)

Sydney said...

oooh little sistah is pisssed!

monty924 said...

Oh no. Their goes their chances. Mark and Mike, is it (?), got their bags back so they should be good for tonight. I missed so much that I'm completely confused. I'll have to watch this back from the beginning.

Sydney said...

Karen and Monty -- apparently we all have EGGSELLENT taste in candy!

Sydney said...

I wonder who runs justTV nuts and how they can run the shows early? NO commercials either right?

monty924 said...

Why yes we do, Sydney. I'm on such a sugar high tonight I can't keep my their, there, they're s straight, LOL!

Sydney said...

why did anyone leave their fanny packs to begin with? DId they have to? Were they told to leave their bags in their cabs?

Sydney said...

AGAIN they broke a race rule! two hour penalty EACH??? that's brutal. They just lost.

Karen said...

yes there is commercials I just sat through a bunch of them mark and micheal just went to the pit stop Oh nop 4 hr pentalty

monty924 said...

What???? Mark and Mike just got the boot. 4 hour penalty for crying out loud. Now I'm really confused, lol.

Karen said...

I was right non emlimination round i was thinking it was the week for it

Sydney said...

Dayum,, Mark and Mike are who I got in the pool. They are like cats-- nine lives. PHil looks like he's not buying what they have to say.

karen said...

are you all going over to the apprentice blog

monty924 said...

Geesh, they have the penalty time and a speed bump next week. I'm hoping they pull it off somehow. What rotten luck!!!

Anonymous said...

What a great ending this week!

becky said...

Sydney -- that was baaaaddd. Darn! That isn't fair that the boys got a penalty. Didn't one of finalist one year (the black couple a few years ago) swap possessions when they had no money? This was the final leg of the race. The boys will have to be lucky to overcome their obstacles next week. Well, I am off to watch Apprentice.

Jackie said...

Sydney - They run the shows by violating copyright laws. I'm shocked they're still in business. Although I know west coast folks here use them, it does bug me when they run the BB live feeds I pay for each year totally against the terms for the live feeds.

The east coast show feeds don't bother me like the live feeds for BB do. I'd just as soon the readers here can watch the shows in our time.

Anonymous said...

Happy to see Phil give the "midgets" a snarky look when they tried to explain their moronic actions. How/why could you-would you keep making the same mistake(s) over and over again? Oy!

monty924 said...

Next week looks GOOD! Some of the racers who have already left the race say Luke and Margie are playing a much more sneaky and aggressive game compared to what they are showing us on TV. I guess we will see some of it next week. Heading off to my CA tape joined in progress, lol.

Sydney said...

lol Becky -- for a minute I was thinking baaad, LAMB, an Easter Joke. Then I realized it's not a Lamb doesn't have much to do with Easter and then I laughed again at myself...

Sydney said...

THanks Jackie --- I am amazed...

monty924 said...

Thanks for me too, Jackie. I didn't know about free live feeds. I've only read several folks on here for BB, Survivor and others say that they watch that site. I live in the east and watch all the shows live as they run and I pay for the live feeds during BB as well, so that does not make me a happy camper. :(

Anonymous said...

I hope Mike and Mark take the three hours and 10 minutes left on their penalty to RE-READ the rules!
The sisters had no money to go back for their fannypack, but used a winning smile to get back to it. M & M need to waste less time arguing and more time reading instuctions.
Marge & Luke took their bags with them from the get go, all the others had to go back either while still at the dock or unfortunately later...much later.

meb said...

Late again... sorry... doing taxes and had to watch from a tape. Anyway, I have the boys along with Sydney and Jennasmom in the pool. I cannot believe they keep doing stupid stuff. I cannot see them getting past the 3+ hour penalty and still be able to do a speed bump and survive. Unless they have to take a plane and it's a long wait and they manage to get on with everyone else.

We'll see!

Anonymous said...

A nail biter, ain't it!

RBennie said...

Good show last night. Those boys sure do have 9 lives. I thought they were gone for sure. I just hope that the 3 hour penalty will be meaningful and not be used up waiting for planes or something. I could have never done that denture task! Gross!

Margo said...

********TAR POOL UPDATE**********

So we have several dumb teams this week, but we had 2 REALLY dumb teams. The sisters and the brothers both left there stuff with their poor taxi drivers at the dock. Margie and Luke were the ONLY team to take their belongs with them when they went to the challenge on the dock. The others either turned their boat around so they could run get their stuff or they made the boat wait while the ran off. How dumb can you be?

Well the boys with their 4 hour penalty came in last but this was a nonPhilimination round so they will have 3 hours and 10 min added to there start time and they have to do a speed bump. I bet we have a fast forward next week so who knows maybe they have a chance?
