The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business 4/17 Episode Blog Party


Wow, it's actually starting on time this week here in the East! Once it starts, everyone is welcome to join in with comments as it airs -- that's where the real fun is! I'll be updating this post with any big news as I watch it here on the East Coast. Stop on by and jump in the pool!

It's off to Vienna, Austria! All on the same flight except the cowboys. They took one with fewer connections, but a half-hour later arrival. This leg is a Ford Focus focus -- winners of the leg each win one. Lots of product placement. Gary and Mallory off to a rough start with the car clue and now the cowboys have arrived.

Zev and Justin have a short lead ... things could change. Onto the library!

Detour - Long Hard Walk (Freud, transport analyst's couch) or Quick and Easy Meal - meals on a Ferris Wheel, eat all in one rotation of wheel.

Jen and Kisha didn't finish their food and are heading to the couch. Same with Zev and Justin. Cowboys are just getting to the detour. Gary and Mallory failed on the meal, too.

Since everybody is switching detours, the cowboys (who went with the couch) are now back in the pack. The Globes have taken over the lead. Gary and Mallory are now in last place and Kent keeps whining. Kent and Vyxsin are having a bickerfest leg. Grr.

Roadblock - chimney sweeping! Globes in the lead heading to the pit stop. They missed the turn allowing Zev and Justin to beat them!

Pit Stop -
1. Zev and Justin! Won the cars.
2. Globetrotters
3. Kent and Vyxsin
4. Jen and Kisha
5. Jet and Cord
6. Gary and Mallory -- NON-PHILIMINATION LEG! They're still in it!

Jackie said...

About time it starts on time!

meb said...

I'm here! I'll try to post... it's not easy running from room to room, but then I can use the exercise. : )

monty924 said...

Here in time to root for the Globetrotters. Howdy everyone.

Delee said...

I was worried about the PGA but guess that ended on time! YEA

Hey all!

joy n said...

Whyn do the cowboys keep taking those later flights?

Jackie said...

Hey, folks! I hope the cowboys catch up!

Delee said...

Glad they are leaving India. Always wanted to go to Austria!

joy n said...

Gary not comprehending concept of reverse so well either.

joy n said...

Giddyup, Cowboys!

Delee said...

At least it is Ford not Govt Motors being given to them and us paying for them!

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. I hate to be late, but had to put leftovers away.

Becky said...

Come on cowboys!

joy n said...

All that fried food would kill me.

Jackie said...

Austria is stunning! But I've definitely had enough winter for the time being.

monty924 said...

Why are the goth's carrying the couch when there's a dolly with wheels sitting on top of it?

joy n said...

Cowboys look to be still in it!

joy n said...

The goths do seem to skip details at times, don't they?

meb said...

I was thinking the food would be easier, but obviously not! It appears the Cowboys will get in front of some of them considering they went directly to the couch comp.

monty924 said...

The trotters are being smart though. Using the trolley when they can and carrying it when its better to do that.

monty924 said...

Oh, that had to hurt!!

monty924 said...

I love Flight Time!

Becky said...

Those girls are TOUGH!!! A lot tougher than the male whiner Goth dude!

Joe in NY said...

hi folks! How is everyone?

Becky said...

Hey, Joe. It's been hot down here in TX.

joy n said...

That Goth bickering is really getting old this season.

monty924 said...

Hey Joe!

I'm snickering at K&V tonight. Such whiners... both of them!

Joe in NY said...

Hi Becky,

We just had snowflakes in NY!!!

Becky said...

Monty, if I was her I would have stabbed him with a dull knife by now. He not only a whimp, he is a whiney one.

Jackie said...

Gorgeous spring day here today ... for a change. Yesterday was horrible with rain and flooding.

monty924 said...

Did I miss something this season? Why does Big EZ always have a band-aide on his head?

Becky said...

How close are you to NYC? NYC is my favorite vacation spot.

We have been in the 80's for over a week. At least it is in the low 80's today and will be for the rest of the week.

I like the GT. They are funny.

Caela said...

i love the Globetrotters! I saw a boy who was like 12 maybe, with a Flighttime jersey on at the movies. I told him it was awesome and his mom looked at me like i was weird =)

monty924 said...

Yay, go Trotters!

monty924 said...

Awww, I love the Pit Stop!

Becky said...

DON'T LET KENT DO IT! Yes, I know I was shouting. But he would start crying and stop.

monty924 said...

Oh well, I love Zev and Justin so its cool that they passed the trotters. Sweet prize!!

Joe in NY said...

Hi Becky,

I'm about 5-1/2 hours from NY...closer to Canada! :)

Becky said...

I am rather glad that the GT didn't win the cars. They can afford to buy one.

Wonder if this is a non elimination round?

Delee said...

I think this may be a non-elim????

Delee said...

WOW I guessed right!

Becky said...

My team came in last, so I am glad it is a non-elim round.

Se most of you on Thurs.

Jackie said...

I'm close to NYC, Becky. But you know that.

monty924 said...

Mallory is always so full of cheer. How does she do it?

meb said...

I figured it was a non-elim round, and glad that Mallory and her dad are still in it, but I have to say, she can really get on your nerves. : )

See you next TAR.

Joe in NY said...

this must be a record for non-elimination legs

joy n said...

I'm fairly close to Joe and we had the snowflakes too. Yesterday was wind gusts up to fifty. Crazy upstate weather.

Happy to see zev and Justin win the cars and the Cowboys are safe again.

monty924 said...

I could never do these food challenges. Yuck!

Well folks, I'm out of here to finish the dishes and laundry. See you all Wednesday.

Oh, Jackie I read your Sunday post a saw where you are having your other knee replacement. Praying all goes well this time and you are walking lightly on your vacation to the Outer Banks. Hugs!

Brent McKee said...

Did anyone notice that that didn't sound like Phil announcing the preview for next week? Or was it just my defective hearing?

Hi All

I wasn't sure if I was watching
the amazing race or a commercial
for Ford.

K&V must go, they give me a headache.
