The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business 4/24 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!

Liechtenstein ahead, as well as a double U-turn! The Roadblock has them riding a motorized bike measuring the country. Gary and Mallory's Speed Bump has them coming up with the right mix of gas for the motorized bike.

Cowboy and Globetrotter both made errors, Jen (or is it Kisha?) lost her map.

Justin through first, then Jen (Kisha?). Jet's answer is wrong.

It's off to Switzerland next! Justin told Flight Time the right answer for the Roadblock and he told Gary. Uh-oh -- looks like the other teams are blocking out Jet and Cord.

Detour - Cheese or Wheeze. Eat fondue or deliver luggage.

Whoa! Despite issues with the eating, Zev and Justin are first to the next clue. Jen and Kisha next.

Zev and Justin chose not to U-Turn anyone. Nor do Jen and Kisha.

First to Pit Stop - Zev and Justin! They won a trip!
2. Kisha and Jen

Uh-oh, Kent and Vyxsin moving on and the Globetrotters lost two tickets. Kent and Vyxsin didn't use the U-Turn.

3. Kent and Vyxsin
4. Gary and Mallory

Globes and Cowboys racing for last, the Globes U-Turned the cowboys.

5. Flight Time and Big Easy

The Cowboys are enjoying a brew.

6. Jet and Cord - Philiminated.

Gee, they didn't throw themselves to the ground crying like Luke did!

Hey everyone! Hope everyone had a nice Easter (if you celebrate!). Ready for TAR!!!!

monty924 said...

Very nice afternoon and the rain stayed away for Easter, so far. Ready to watch my Trotters.

Jackie said...

Heavy thunderstorms passing through here ... in case I disappear.

Joanie said...

Sorry for being a cynic but did Zev and Justin each win 2012 Ford Focus for winning the last leg of the race?

Caela said...

Look at the sisters flirting!!! Id flirt with Flight Time too! He's so cute!

monty924 said...

Probably the storms that passed through here all day yesterday. Hope yours aren't as bad, Jackie.

monty924 said...

Speed Bumps are not generally that hard to accomplish. Unless of course you argue over it...

i'm away from my tv - can anyone tell me a website to watch live?

monty924 said...

I don't know any sites for TAR... sorry, wish I could help.

Becky said...

Hey, everyone! Hope you had a "Hoppy" Easter and that you found the golden egg.

Jackie said...

Joannie - Yes, they did.

Anon - I haven't a clue!

Becky said...

Sorry, I don't know any sites either.

Anonymous said...

Then as always i thank God for Jackie!!! Jackie, Jackie your the best! Keep the updates coming...(pretty please)

Caela said...

Wow! Im not sure all the sharing is a good idea!

Joanie said...

Jackie,

I was being a pain, the show made a big deal of the car last week, then again in the re-cap tonight. Also the first commercial after the re-cap was for the Ford, and then when they came back from the commercials they mentioned the cars again.

I know Jeff Probst said the product placement is the future of TV but...well you get the idea.

monty924 said...

Okay, she just said what I was thinking about all that cheese.

Caela said...

im only half watching, is it just cheese or is there something else in it?

monty924 said...

K&V whining again...

Becky said...

Kent is a BIG Whiner!

monty924 said...

Just cheese Caela.

Caela said...

ok thx Monty! I dont think eating cheese would be that hard. must be a weird kind!

monty924 said...

Now that Zev and Justin are this far into it, I wouldn't quit. I'd eat and puke until I finished it. I know, easier said than done.

Jackie said...

Now, if it were CHOCOLATE fondue, I would go for that! Poor Zev and Justin. They should know better than to do a food detour!

monty924 said...

Its a big pot of cheese and a lot of bread. I'm sure it isn't easy. Zev said it didn't taste good.

monty924 said...

Product placement is always all over Survivor. From the Palm phones to all the goodies at Ponderosa and some of the rewards (the Charmin outhouse comes to mind).

monty924 said...

Yay, good for Zev and Justin!

Becky said...

Kent is crying again!

Joe in NY said...

hi folks!

monty924 said...

Hello Joe!

Becky said...

I wish someone could U-Turn K&V!

Joe in NY said...

I LOVE the way Chuck does the Subway product placement! Makes me laugh every time.

monty924 said...

I love Zev... he looks adorable with that pot on his head. :)

Becky said...

Hey, Joe!

Joe in NY said...

Hi Becky

Becky said...

What a namby-pampy!

monty924 said...

OMG, that has to be a first for TAR! She's pulling HIM! I'd be ashamed of myself if I were him.

Becky said...

GO, COWBOYS!!!

Chi Omega said...

hope the globetrotters dont get u turned!

Anonymous said...

oh no! globetrotters are doomed!

Anonymous said...

I'm sure they'll find the 2...making it good of tv

monty924 said...

They better. I don't want the Globetrotters out. :(

Caela said...

i cant watch!

monty924 said...

Oh no... they were ahead of them. Why did they U-Turn them? I guess it will be another non-elim.

Caela said...

they made a good decision using the uturn! they could have easily gotten lost and blown the little lead that had

monty924 said...

Oh, sad! Still wish my team hadn't U-Turned them. :(

Joe in NY said...

I'll miss the Cowboys...

monty924 said...

Me too, Joe. I guess the other teams won't hold it against them. They all feared the Cowboys.

Becky said...

I WILL NOT root for the Globetrotters again! What a couple of jerks!

I am very disappointed to see the Cowboys go. They are the real winners in my book.

They did the race on their own. How many of the teams tonight had someone tell the the correct miles. The Cowboys did it on their own.

See you guys on Thurs.

Caela said...

how r they jerks? They u turned a strong team that was right behind them!

monty924 said...

Off to watch The Donald. See you all on Wednesday. Happy Easter All!!

monty924 said...

Caela, you're right about it being smart and it is a race for a million. Its just a lot of us here love the cowboys. My Trotters are still there and I'll still root, root. :)

Caela said...

i like the cowboys too! really wish K&V went home instead!

Jackie said...

It's possible that the outcome would have been the same had the Globes not U-turned the Cowboys. But, in their shoes, I don't think I would have taken the chance either.

The Cowboys were a strong team, but it also appears that the other teams didn't take to them all that well. That hurt them.

The Globetrotters are my blog pool team, but I think I'd love a Zev/Justin win!

Anonymous said...

It is amazing alright! They all cheated (except the Cowboys) by giving the mileage calculations to each other.

The only teams that got it on their own were Justin/Jev and Jet/Cord.

It would be hard to eliminate all of the others but Kisha OBVIOUSLY overheard the answer and changed her submission. Then she gave it to Flight Time who passed it to Gary (the Daddy) who gave it to Vyxsin.

What is the point of having a show where people cheat, we can watch them and there is no repercussion. How about some "penalty time" for those who cheated. no one know how many of them would have gotten the wrong answer and had to start again.

Lifeguard Laurie said...

Still in the pool ...
Gary & Mallory- Karen in CA. Becky, Caela (1 win)
Flight Time & Big Easy - Terry in PA, Jackie, Monty934 (1 win)
Kent & Vyxsin - Rbennie, Laurie
LaKisha & Jennifer - PDX Granny, Donna in FL
Zev & Justin - Zoetawny, Brent (4 wins)

Wow ... I'm surprised at who is still in and who is out.

Jennasmom said...

The cowboys didn't throw themselves on the ground sobbing, but I might......

But that's the game. They were a strong team, so the others tried to stop them. They succeeded.

Hope we see the cowboys again on something. Two really likable guys!
