The Amazing Race - 11/08 Episode Blog Party Post



Surprise, surprise ... the show has been delayed by football here in the NYC viewing area. I believe 60 Minutes started about 20 minutes late, so we can expect TAR at about 8:30-ish PM ET.

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.

8:20 PM and it's a go.

Pit Stop
1. Flight Time and Big Easy - won a trip and it's FT's birthday!
2. Megan and Cheyne
3. Brian and Erick
4. Sam and Dan
5. Gary and Matt -- Non-elimination leg, so they're still in it!

And the Giants lost again. Hubby not happy and my fave reality show is late again so I'm a 'little bit' grumpy too. Can't they play just one hour earlier? Don't they get that we're all waiting here? LOL!

mammaroos said...

Hiya Joy
Sorry about the Giants.. I am a Seahawk fan and was really glad to see them come back and win against the Lions....Hope Tar starts soon. Seeing how I read on here and watch later lol thats the down fall on being on the West Coast.

Sydney said...

Hey Joy and Mammaroos!

Laurie said...

Joyn, tell your husband it wasn't a Giants loss but instead it was a Charger WIN! Yeah, baby!

I have a nice fire going in the virtual fireplace and plenty of hot chocolate for all. We have big and mini marshmallows along with a bottle of Bailey's for those who are so inclined. It does help keep the warmth in!

Now, a front row seat for the hay bale event! Let's get going!!

Laurie said...

Hey Mammaroo and Sydney! Get comfy and enjoy the race!

Sydney said...

the planes can always be delayed don't they know that from watching the show???

Tessa said...

I've been missing out on commenting for awhile but am here tonight.

joy n said...

Looks like Brian and Erika will easily play catchup.

Maybe not. First flight is full. Only three teams made it.

Sydney said...

Hey Laurie!

monty924 said...

Howdie folks! Laurie, your Chargers made the wait exciting. Congrats.

I want the Globetrotters to come in first tonight. :)

joy n said...

Laurie, if I told him that, I wouldn't hear a word of TAR tonight!

Tessa said...

Wow, 2 hours behind is not good.

monty924 said...

Oooo, I want to ride that!

Sydney said...

Sh*t, I know my husband wants to do that drop pole thing. Can you imagine? It's not something I'd seek out at an amusement park but I could do it if needed.

joy n said...

Happy for you Charger fans but... don't tell my other half I said that.

Hey, everyone!

Tessa said...

It's the gnome.

Sydney said...

globetrotter not screaming but baring his teeth and shaking his head. That's a new one, lol.

Sydney said...

come on father and son team.. Make it make it make it!!!

Oooooooooooooo noooooooooo Mr. Bill.

So I guess people aren't helping each other out anymore?

mammaroos said...

Hey Everyone :) I too like the Globetrotters they are my favorite :) I just wish I could watch earlier but will wait till 8 my time lol

joy n said...

Uh, oh! That could cost Gary and Matt, missing that train.

Donna in AL said...

That ride fits in with what I watched most of the afternoon - Extreme thrill rides!

Hi everyone!

Sydney said...

COMMERCIAL for SUrvivor -- so they are advertising Russell as having a target on his back, which he does. But do you think they are doing that because he doesn't go next week? I mean if he did go next week, would they advertise that way?

joy n said...

30, even 20 years ago, I might have tried that ride, but my aging brittle bones would scream NO at me now.

Sydney said...

15 minutes is not bad to have to wait for the next train....

Sydney said...

Do they have a gnome under almost every one of those red hats?

Sydney said...

I love the dad and son team!

mammaroos said...

Sydney, I hope Russell leaves this week I can not stand him he is Arogant A** in my opinion I want LAura to win seeing how shes from the same town I am in :o)

Donna in AL said...

Ultimate challenge for guys ... BLOWING SOMETHING UP!!

Sydney said...

blonde long haired driver thrilled to be on TV.

Donna in AL said...

My sons would kill each other in a challenge where they had to work together! They are so opposite!

Sydney said...

lol Donna. I think my husband and I would too, as we go about tasks very differently.

joy n said...

Not looking good for Matt and Gary right now.

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. I'll take that cup of hot chocolate, please.

I think Pappa and Junior Bear are in trouble.

At least the GT caught up. I really like those guys.

Laurie said...

Hey Tessa! Good to see you again.

Mammaroos, I watch it in the west coast, too.

Joyn, don't tell your husband what I said, please. No need to cause drama. Just know I am one happy lady tonight with the Charger win.

Sydney said...

mamaroos -- really? I didn't know that. She made it by last week, right? She was the one they were targeting that won immunity? If so, you must have been leaping off the couch!

Sydney said...

the little guy on UP looks like Spenver Tracy.

mammaroos said...

Sydney yes that is her... she's from Oregon so was ben but he is gone :( Just like Big brother Natalie the one who works at the bikini barista she lives here too and still works at the coffee place. I would love to see Laura make it to the end. we will see shes just gotta get Russell outta there lol

joy n said...

Believe me, Laurie, I'm staying mum. I'm smarter than that. LOL!!

Sydney said...

Late shout out to Tessa!

Laurie, that fireplace is a nice touch!
QUESTION: did the two brothers ever tell the poker girls that they weren't straight before the girls left?

Donna in AL said...

Do they not know how to layer the sand bags? I would think you would do them like brick, instead of stacking them directly on top of each other.

mammaroos said...

Sydney they told the whole group last week they arent straight

monty924 said...

Wow, this is even harder than the original. Only 7 flags in over 180 bales.

Sydney said...

I never saw that ep. And they needed to make them go through 100 bales before telling them that they then were eliminated? OY. That seems like unnecessary torture!

I had no idea that hay bales unrolled.

Sydney said...

oh this is going to kill some of these couples.

Sydney said...

Wouldn't Shane's upper body strength have been better for undoing this.

joy n said...

Cheyne should have been a gentleman and done the hay himself.

Sydney said...

wussy Shane. I am mad at him right now.

The globetrotters will have a huge advantage because they are so big... if they pick the right bales.


YES SHUT UP Brother.

Becky said...

I can't believe that the jerk made the girl do it. How nice to give her some gloves to wear! Dip Stick!

Sydney said...

Even though I have the brothers I'm kinda rooting for the father and son. Actually I like all the teams this year. That's a nice change!

Tessa said...

That hay bale task is brutal.

Becky said...

Shut up, BABY!

The brother is on my last nerve.

Sydney said...

Oh SHUT UP brother! SHUT THE F*CK UP!!! I know he's stressed, but how can he think that will help anything but his own demise when his brother melts down.

Tessa said...

"No stress baby" Give me a break Cheyne, you should have been out there.

Sydney said...

My husband says (I can't take credit for his good comments) that the later you get there, the less you have to search through. Good point! May even it out a bit for Gary and Matt.

Sydney said...

Oh wow... he got a clue!!!

Becky said...

Good for the GT. They have fun no matter what they do. WTG, fellas

Tessa said...

I knew the globetrotters were going to be first.

monty924 said...

Yahoooo!!! Go trotters

joy n said...

The brotherly love seems to be fading fast.

How nice that Cheyne is proud of Megan.

Tessa said...

Wow, what a trip.

Sydney said...

oops, I see I've been spelling Cheyne's namke wrong. I have a stepson named Shane.

Becky said...

Loved the "we didn't have no hay bales in the projects".

Tessa said...

C'mon Megan, you can do it.

Sydney said...

Send the man, how stupid are you? Upper Body strength , hello!

Tessa said...

Now it's a race.

Tessa said...

2 hours. UGH!!!

mammaroos said...

I just found my link to Just tv and I can watch I just saw the trotters get first place :)

Sydney said...

God, I can imagine crying my eyes out -- running all over for weeks now, probably little sleep and jet lag and then unrolling those things for 2 hours?

JoyN, you are cracking me up!

Jackie said...

Where did the Globetrotters win the trip to?

Sydney said...

yay mamaroos!

Laurie, I guess you don't want to do that to watch with us...it's just 6 PM there and you are probably just making dinner.

mammaroos said...

Jackies to the Turks Phil said

Sydney said...

mamaroos -- just reading comments during commercials. Have you ever gone in to the coffeeshop when natalie was working?

Sydney said...

JAkcie -- TUrks

joy n said...

I didn't catch the trip place name either.

mammaroos said...

Yes I have and she is just like in person as she was on tv really chatty but seemeddown to earth and when I told her i watched her on BB she said thanks and then kinda didn't want to talk about it lol

joy n said...

Cheyne is a jerk1

Sydney said...

oh pffft, now he gets it that he should have shut up.

Donna in AL said...

The son sees it the same as your DH Sydney! Better odds!

Becky said...

I would walk over and whop my brother up against the side of the head.

Sydney said...

I can't believe she can even run to get to that mat. Can you say 23?

OH shut up Cheyne. So happy she's going to do all the tough stuff for you for life?

(gee, where did THAT come from? lol)

joy n said...

A little late to sweeten her up now, Cheyne. Darn right, she did it all.

Becky said...

Come on Dad!

joy n said...

Maybe a non-elim?

Tessa said...

At least Dan knows he was a complete jerk.

joy n said...

Really glad the brothers made up.

monty924 said...

I hope its a non elimination leg. I love Gary and Matt.

Tessa said...

Dad is the MAN!

Sydney said...

SHooting through his earring!

Boy, they stayed in good spirits the whole way through. PLEASE -- NON ELIM ROUND??????

Sydney said...

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

monty924 said...

YES!!!

Becky said...

I have decided I don't like the brother or Cheyne. I hate that the Dad and Son are out.

GREAT! They are still in it. I hope they come in first. They could use the money more than the GT.

joy n said...

YES!!! A non-elim!!! Dad and son are still in!!!

Tessa said...

I am glad it was a non-elimination round. If they had had him finish that just to tell him they were gone....well, that would have just been wrong.

Laurie said...

I don't watch the show for another couple of hours but I enjoy being part of the fun here when the rest of my buddies watch it. Sometimes I don't see it until Monday night. It's okay that I know who goes and who stays. It's all fun for me!

joy n said...

God show! Loved the ending!!

Sydney said...

NEXT ---- DEXTER!!!

monty924 said...

Good show. The Globetrotters finish first and Gary and Matt are still in it.

Nite folks!

meb said...

Meghan deserved to get this and Cheyne needs his a$$ kicked for letting her do it, especially since he knew the results of the first time it was done and a girl was out there for 8-10 hours. He didn't endear himself to me this episode.

I'm so glad the father/son are still in it. Hope they can make up the speed bump next week.

joy n said...

Jackie, I replayed my tape and Phil said, "The Turks and Caicos". Wiki says The Turks and Caicos (Islands) are a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean. Sounds like a fantastic trip!

meb said...

Yes Syd...Dexter next...

joyn...try the picture again... I added a different one in addition to the avatar... let me know if you can see them please.

Lisanne said...

So glad G&M are still in it. Hopefully they will get an easy speedbump like the girls did.

joy n said...

Meb, just checked them out and I CAN SEE! Thank you for going the extra steps. It looks like you guys had a blast! Everyone has such big smiles.

Sizzie said...

Jackie, I think the trip is to the Turks and caicos Islands.

I am so glad it was a non-elim. I saw the very end and was so dissappointed when it looked like the son and dad would have to leave.

Laurie said...

Cheyne really is a wuss and so is the brother who keeps giving advice. They should give this a shot when they get home and see how hard it really is. Watching it is making me itch all over!

ChicMc said...

I know you are hating on Cheyne for "letting" Megan tackle the hay bale task, but in his defense, she was being mighty unpleasant and commanding.
I think it was a case of "want to be bossy leader? Okay, go for it".

He probably felt stupid about it ten minutes into the task.

Does anybody remember the season where it was actually announced that each team member had to do a certain about of the tasks?
It might have been the season with Charla and her cousin.

Is that something that still applies, but just isn't shared with the viewing public?

ChicMc said...

PS
Love that father and son are still in.

Margo said...

There is no change to the pool as this was a non elimination round. Yea I like the Father/son team.

Margo

joy n said...

At Elimination Station, Canaan has broken off his relationship with Mika. I think it's a good idea for them to go their separate ways.
