The Amazing Race - 10/11/09 Episode Blog Party



Sigh. I don't like football. I don't watch football. But football has delayed the show here in the NYC area. 60 Minutes started at 7:45 PM ET instead of 7 PM. So, we're running forty-five minutes late.

Once it starts, as it airs here on the East Coast, I'll update any major happenings in this entry. However, the real fun (and most of the information) will be in the comments. Everyone is welcome to join in. My actual show review will be posted over on TV Squad sometime late tonight.

Who wants to bet pre-show that since they're showing Zev and Justin with lost passport problems, they'll find the documents?

8:43 PM ET and we're starting.

Pit Stop Order

1. Zev and Justin -- however, they lost their passports (or maybe just Zev's) and were told they must find them or leave the race.
2. Sam and Dan
3. Flight Time and Big Easy
ARGH
1. Sam and Dan
2. Flight Time and Big Easy
3. Brian and Ericka
4. Gary and Matt
5. Megan and Chyne
6. Lance and Keri
7. Mika and Canaan
8. Tiffany and Maria

SIGH ... Zev and Justin couldn't find Zev's passport. They were eliminated. Rats -- I really enjoyed them.

I won't take that bet because I know you're probably right. Editors, sheesh!

Those sports "events" not only screw up TAR, but everything you planned to watch on other chaneels for the rest of the night.

If anyone's going home tonight, hope it's Lance and Keri. At least that would be something.

sizzie said...

Thanks Jackie for getting the post up and for saying how long over football went. It helps to know, after reading what you said, I went in and changed the DVR to record longer.

Laurie said...

It was a good football game!

See you all in a few minutes when TAR starts. Joyn, Lance and Keri going home would be such a nice gift for us!

joy n said...

Yes, Laurie, aren't they irritating?

Sydney said...

Hi Everybody!

Well, I finally heard them clearly say they are in a race. I havenever known if it was against the rules when they were stressing yelling at cab drivers to get going if they could actually just explain that it was a race and that they were in it for a million dollars. I think last season I heard one of the contestants say something like a lot of money was at stake...

joy n said...

"You're now in last place." Lance is such a jerk! A little Karma bit him in the butt there. Hope Justin and Zev make the last flight on standby and L&K don't! HA!

Sydney said...

My husband loves footballs so while he loves TAR he's never upset about the delays. His Texans almost won tonight then lost at the last minute.

Joy N, I want those two to go tonight too...

Margo said...

Hey Sydney-

I don't like these late starts.

Margo

joy n said...

Did you notice that ticket agent didn't tell Lance HE was "very nice"?

joy n said...

Can't believe these people don't recognize Jackie Kennedy.

Sydney said...

OH MY GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!

THEY DON'T KNOW WHO JACKIE IS????????

I DON'T CARE HOW YOUNG YOU ARE!

Sydney said...

Me neither Margo. Good to have you with us tonight. Say hi to Mom for us willya?

Sydney said...

apparently every cab driver and pedal taxi and rickshaw guy knows who Jackie Kennedy is...

I rest my case.

joy n said...

Zev and Justin are in first place right now. Take that, Lance!

Sydney said...

$$ must go far there as that one team has the cash apparently to have the driver help them look for the lady in the market with their matching scarf and drive ahead of them while they ran behind.

Sydney said...

Siz, I love your team!

Sydney said...

Oh! Fabulous task! I'd totally love to do that!

Sydney said...

Zev and his buddy really seem to have a great relationship based on lots of good humored razzing. It's nice to see.

Sydney said...

All the medical masks!

Sydney said...

Am I the only one who things the two really cute young Christian blondes look like brother and sister? AK, what are their names? I think Meghan & Cheyne?

Globetrotters were Sweat-ing!

And uh oh, Zev might be.... what? Dehydrated?

joy n said...

Hope Justin can calm him down a bit.

Sydney said...

Belated Hello to Mammaroos. Hope you can peek back in before the show is over. What are you studying if you don't mind sharing? If not, no worries...

Sydney said...

why do I just not really like the poker gals? Anyone else? I know Joy, it's just you and I talking, lol, so anyone means you! :-)

Sydney said...

Wow the Cambodian woman welcoming them with Phil is beautiful!

Sydney said...

wow -- new rule! No passports so your mat order doesn't count?

joy n said...

Z & J have to find those passports or they're out of the race!

Jackie said...

I don't like the poker girls so much

joy n said...

Phil said they can't travel without them. They're still first but will have to go home if they can't find them quickly.

What's up with them not getting a prize for 1st place, too?

joy n said...

I'm not too thrilled with the poker girls, either.

joy n said...

Sorry, Syd, only commenting during the commercials.

joy n said...

If they don't find Zev's pp before the last team shows up, they're out of the race!

meb said...

Really hectic comps this time... I've had to tape the news and whatever comes on after that just to make sure I have the 9 and 10 shows too. Late show starts are aggravating!

Sydney said...

oh well, for everyone wishing they are out, lance and what's her name are 6th. Boo

Sydney said...

How nice are those two guys to not get angry at each other. They are deserving of the win.

monty924 said...

Late, late, late... but I have fresh candy corn.

Poor Zev and Justin.

joy n said...

OH NO! Zev and Justin did lose their place and came in last. They've been eliminated! That really sucks!

Sharon S said...

well that just stinks :(

docsharon said...

What a shame.

joy n said...

I feel so sad for those guys. I really thought they were pulling our legs (editors) and the guys would find them in time.

Sydney said...

I gotta say, and I don't think I'm alone in this seeing how many people voted for Jeff on BB. I don't need asshole contestants like Evil Dick or Russell or Jonny Fairplay on Survivor or the many bickering teams we've seen on TAR to create interest and drama.

Margo said...

I have to root for the poker gals but I don't have to like them.

Mom says Holla - not really she just says Hi.

Margo

Sydney said...

HI all, and bye all. Monty, thanks for the candy corn!

Sydney said...

Dexter nexter

joy n said...

I don't have SHO anymore so I'm missing Dexter but my hubby bought me season 3 with my TV crush, Jimmy Smits, which thrilled me. My hubby puts up with the crush, sweet man. I'll watch 4 when it's out on DVD next fall.

Margo said...

I'm sad I liked Zev & Justin. G'nite see ya in the AM.

Margo

Do we know where the passport was????\

joy n said...

No, they still hadn't found it. What a shame.

I just looked at all your pictures and you did a good job girl. I would love to eat at the place that has southern food. Nothing like it. We love our fried foods. Your little cat is so precious. My daughter has 4 black cats in her house and around 8-10 cats outside in the woods. She feeds them all. What I really want to know is do you hear anything about the winners of BB11? I would love to know what is happening to them. Better go talk to much. Sorry folks! Jackie from North Carolina

ML said...

I kinda knew they weren't going to find the passport because if a cameraman had caught them drop it they would show it, like when the poker girls lost 2 of their group of locals in that busy intersection in the first episode. TAR kept flashing back to the 2 stranded ladies while the poker girls frantically searched for them. Sorry to see Zev and Justin go. They are good people.

I was shocked and embarassed that almost none of the teams recognized Jackie Kennedy. Not all of them are that young. The bickering lawyers (well educated lawyers!) didn't even know. And my pool pick, Mika and Canaan, going on about (Jackie Kennedy's) Cambodian facial features and the others saying she was a Cambodian queen? I seriously don't know what to say.

ChicMc said...

Somebody must have seen Zev lose the passport since Phil knew it was gone at the pit stop.
I missed the program, even with the late start, so was it ever shown where he lost it?
Not my pool pick, but I liked this team.

Margo said...

joy n said...

Phil told Z&J they'd come in as the first team but never mentioned a prize for doing so. A moment or two later he asked them what was wrong. But I guess he must have known already since he never offered a prize. That, or the prize was rescinded because the passport was never found during the taping. Either way, I think they should have been given something besides a ticket home. Zev and Justin were really decent guys and I feel so bad for them.

joy n said...

I don't think Sam and Dave received a prize either when they were named the first team.

monty924 said...

If you watch the Elimination Station for this week, it was Justin who lost the passport. He felt horrible when they figured it out. When they went to the embassy, the passport was already there waiting for them to pick it up.

Sad ending to a fun team. I'll miss them.

joy n said...

Thanks, Monty, I'd forgotten to check Elim. Sta. out this week. One little mistake did them in. I'll miss them too.
