The Amazing Race - Blog Party Post - 2/28/10 Episode



They're spoiling us so far this season -- the show has started on time each week and we're into the third episode! As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with major events including the Pit Stop order and Philimination (if any). My actual show review will be posted late tonight over on TV Squad. But the real fun (and most information) will be right here in the comments area. Everyone is invited to join in with your thoughts!

Pit Stop -
1. Jet and Cord - won a trip to Patagonia
2. Steve and Allie
3. Carol and Brandy
4. Joe and Heidi
5. Jeff and Jordan
6. Dan and Jordan
7. Brent and Caite
8. Louie and Michael
9. Monique and Shawne -- Philiminated

Yay! Time to root for Caitlin and Brent, my pool people. Have to admit, I'm kind of surprised that they're still in it.

I wondered if the earthquake would be mentioned and it was.

Still rooting for Jordan and Jeff too, tho.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie! Thanks for opening your home again. How is the weather?

joy n said...

Maybe I spoke too soon. They really look sick. Food poisoning is NOT fun. 3 hour delay for them.

joy n said...

And the gnomes make their appearance.

Sally said...

I'm liking the cowboys--glad I have them in the pool. Of course I'm rooting for Jeff and Jordan too.

joy n said...

Cowboys are unlucky at cards.

Delee said...

We will see how much of a cowboy the cowboys are with the roping!

Sally said...

If the cowboys have any rodeo experience, they could have a real advantage!

joy n said...

Roping steers on the roadblock. Right up the cowboys alley.

Sydney said...

Hi Y'all. I brought chewy, rich chocolate brownies that I just made. You can have cool whip or ice cream on top... and yes, all are Fat free!

Sydney said...

Amazed more people don't get sick on TAR.

Becky said...

Talk about a tailor made comp for the cowboys!

monty924 said...

Hi folks!

That RoadBlock was tailor made for the cowboys.

Becky said...

That couple was really sick. I like the Cowboys and J&J. I have Steve and Alli in the pool.

Becky said...

Hey, Monty, great minds!

meb said...

Like the cowboy said, he doesn't speak Spanish and didn't complain because the girls do... just happened to be a challenge they could win.

Liking this challenge.

monty924 said...

Jeff is so adorable!

I don't think the cowboys are expecting wooden horses.

Delee said...

Pit stop is sure fast this time. Something must happen!

joy n said...

Cowboys are funny. Like their sense of humor.

Sydney said...

Gee, did they do this challenge so the cowboys would have the advantage? I would of course say no but then was it last season they had three different eps in a country where Chinese was spoken and one couple was/spoke Chinese too?

Sydney said...

Not loving Carol and Brandy.

joy n said...

Carol and Brandy, shut up for a minute!

Sydney said...

I like Monique and Shawne. I would like to see more of them.

Delee said...

Why O Why after all these seasons of AR does anyone go on the race without knowing how to drive a manuel transmission?

joy n said...

Jeff and Jordan, read your clues!

Becky said...

What are J&J doing wrong?

Sydney said...

Awww. I was just saying I'd be pissed off if Brent lassoed it on the first try.And he did. Or his second I guess he said.

mammaroos said...

Evening all from Sunny Oregon :o) I lost track of time was getting dinner started... hows the show so far going to read comments

Sally said...

Looks like Brent and Caite made up for the time they spent at the hospital. Good for them. It would be a shame if they lost because of a flu bug or something beyond their control.

Laurie said...

*sliding in a little late*
Happy end of the weekend, everyone!
I'm still rooting for my lawyer ladies. I think this is the longest I've lasted in the pool and I'm enjoying every minute of it. Thanks for the brownies, Syndey. Love 'em!

joy n said...

Monique and Shawne may be in trouble here.

meb said...

Those are my pool gals! They gotta get that thing lassoed! Feel so bad for them... she's got to be really tired.

Jackie said...

Becky - Jeff and Jordan are bringing the loot to the gunslinger, not the lead bandit.

mammaroos said...

I have home made chicken alfredo if anyone hasn't had dinner yet :)

meb said...

mammaroos... I'm in... sounds licious!

Sally said...

Prayer works!

Becky said...

Cowboys are first!

mammaroos said...

(___) heres a bowl of it Meb hope you enjoy it

Sally said...

Oh my gravy...the cowboys did it again!

monty924 said...

OH J&J. These people never read the entire clue. Argh!

Becky said...

Food is great! Thanks. Hey, my team is number two. FINALLY Jeff reads the clue! I do not like the two girls who are nasty to each other.

joy n said...

Jeff - "We shouldn't reproduce." Funny!

Becky said...

Jordan is funny.

joy n said...

Finally, J&J!

Becky said...

Thanks, Jackie. Trying to play a game while watching. Not a smart move.

Sally said...

Who was on the wooden horse that tipped over forward?

Becky said...

Jordan is as cute as she is funny.

monty924 said...

Yay, Jeff and Jordan still in it.

joy n said...

Jeff and Jordan are safe!

Caitlin and Brent too!

Sydney said...

Darn they showed Monique and Shawne so much this ep because they are leaving... darn.

Sydney said...

Gawd, they're gorgeous ladies.

joy n said...

Aw, Monique and Shawne are elim'd.

Becky said...

I have to give the two women a standing O for not giving up. They set a wonderful example for their children. They never were ugly to each other and they hung in there.

meb said...

Awwwww...poor babies... I really did want them to stay in longer. They were so sweet. Oh well. Now I can really root for Jeff and Jordon.. I hope whoever has them won't mind, but I'm jumping in the water with you guys!

Sally said...

I was hoping for a non-elimination round. Too bad. But Shawne and Monique, you did yourselves proud!

Laurie said...

Oh darn, I think I jinxed my team! I really thought they would go further than this. Buh-bye ... does this mean I have to get out of the pool?

joy n said...

Sydney, brownies and ice cream were delish! Thanks.

monty924 said...

Looks like a good show next week. Back to the olympics. Last night and all! :)

meb said...

Our pool monitor must be visiting her mama... missed you during this one Margo

Becky said...

Laurie, just jump on someone elses float.

Sydney said...

Now to watch the closing ceremonies of the Olympics. Been glued to them for the last 2 + weeks! Anyone else?

Sydney said...

Gee, I should read the comments before I leave mine. The Cowboy comment and the Olympic ones were dupes of someone else's. :-/

Laurie said...

Yes, we've been watching the Olympics every night. Good stuff!

I think I'll be a pool floater for awhile and serve drinks and food.

Margo said...

Hey y'all - I'm here. I saw a bit of the show the challenges looked like the cowboys would have done them handily. I did not see them doing anything other than running to the mat in first place again. Are we going to do bull riding next week? We have had cow milking - roping. Maybe it will be barrel running.

Margo

hi all
the cowboys are a lot smarter then they looked.

I am still pulling for J & J

Sydney said...

BACHELOR FINALE TONIGHT!!!

see y'all over at the Bachelor meet up discussion that Jackie set up for us.

Anonymous said...

YAY! J&J are still in it! The comment about not reproducing was hilarious! The kids would be beautiful tho! Loving the cowboys too!!

Caela

Suzy C said...

Jackie, I just wanted to let you know that the main reason TAR is delayed is because of football and football is OVER! That's why it's been on time this season.

Laurie said...

I thought it was a good show with some funny moments. At one point Tim said "Only one of those brothers is gay?" I said "Well, that's what they said when they introduced themselves." He laughed and said "Well, one is in denial then". Cracked me up.

I felt bad that my team (and Meb's and Donna in FL) lost but they sure put up a good fight, didn't they? I'm proud of them!

The two women who are five months into their relationship may end it before this is over. They remind me of so many other couples who bicker and fight and play passive-aggressive games with each other. Nothing is really settled or figured out, they just continue to pick at each other. I hate that!

I'm kind of loving the cowboys, though. They are funny and way smarter than they appear to be. I loved that they didn't give any info to the women when they grilled them.

Sydney said...

Ah a pretty satisfying bachelor viewing night. If anyone is interested jog on over to the discussion meet up that Jackie put up for us. Ditto Project Runway if anyone hasn't been commenting there....

Margo said...

**DWTS POOL**
Does anyone wanna play for DWTS? We have 11 contestants this year so I need 10 more people to play in the pool with me. Jackie does not watch this show but she is kind enough to set up a discussion post for us.
Thanks Jackie =)

Let me know if you want in.

*********

I do, I do! :)

Donna in FL said...

Im in for the DWTS pool Margo!

Out in Amazing race but I'm rooting for Jeff and Jordon now. Am ready for Carol/Brandy team to leave...don't want to listen to them anymore.

and for survivor I have JT again....he won for me last time.

joy n said...

Count me in on the DWTS pool, Margo.

joy n said...

OT

Left some comments over on Bachelor post in re to my B-day.

joy n said...

OT- DWTS

Jonathan Roberts and Lacey Schwimmer won't be on this season. Karina Smirnoff will only choreograph routines backstage this season. There is one new pro - Damian Whitewood. He's an Australian who won National ballroom and Latin American style championships.

Ashley Costa will be a pro. Apparently, she was on the first three seasons.

The pair-ups are as follows -

Jake Pavelka and Chelsie Hightower

Shannen Doherty and Mark Ballas

Pamela Anderson and Damian Whitewood

Buzz Aldrin and Ashley Costa

Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani

Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya

Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough

Aiden Turner and Edyta Sliwinska

Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke

Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkowskiy

Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel

Only 11 couples this time around which I think is a good thing.

Evan is the Olympic gold medalist. Nicole is the Pussycat Doll. Aiden is from All My Children. Chad is the football player. Erin is an ESPN sports reporter. Niecy, I only know from Clean House.

ML said...

Margo- yes yes yes I want to be in on the pool for DWTS!!!!

I can't wait- excited to see Jake- he got a good partner in Chelsea. Edyta is with another ABC soap star again- never heard of him but I always hope she has a chance to win, or at least stick around past the first show. Last season was a bummer for her going out first with Ashley Hamilton. I don't know the figure skater but Anna T. is not my favorite, and I think Evan would have a good chance being a figure skater and gold medal Olympian.

I hope that Pussy Cat doll is good because my favorite thing to watch on DWTS is Derek dancing. So I want him to stick around!

So count me in Margo! Thanks!
ML

Margo said...

Cool I'm excited that you all are excited about DWTS.

I'm glad Ashley is finally back - I think she is the one that got stuck w/Master P. She has since had a baby. The last name is different but I also assume she got married - or took her husbands name after the baby.

Margo

Bettieclaire said...

Maybe I spoke too soon. They really look sick. Food poisoning is NOT fun. 3 hour delay for them.

Sydney said...

Margo, count me in for DWTS.

I will be rooting for #1 Evan

#2 Jake, but I have a feeling he won't be a great dancer. But I gather he's committed to excellence so let's see if his work ethic will make him improve.

#3 Buzz Aldrin.

#4 I know not many are with me on this, but I'll enjoy seeing Pam Anderson.

ML --The only reason I will tolerate the Pussy Cat Doll is that she is dancing with Derek, lol. Thanks for that little tidbit!

Now for a way to stomach Kate G.
