The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business 5/01 Episode Blog Party


Wow, it's actually starting on time an 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!

The teams will be taking helicopter trips to "the unknown" in five-minute intervals. Zev and Justin, of course, are first. Jen and Kisha caught up, snowing heavily. Heh -- Gary and Mallory got a cab before Kent and Vyxsin. Now the Globes are in a cab while Kent is still fussing.

Detour - Search or Rescue. Search for a training dummy on glacier, dig him up. Rescue - rappel into a crevice to rescue a victim.

Gary and Mallory accidentally ripped the legs off their dummy while saving him. Jen and Kisha have taken over the lead. Zev and Justin are having problems. Gah. The Goths caught up. The Globes did, too.

Uh-oh, Zev and Justin are having REAL problems and missed the train everyone else took. Now they have its legs.

Roadblock - Who wants to make a new friend? They have to make a Roaming Gnome out of chocolate.

Finally Zev and Justin are waiting for the train to the next clue. All the others have started the Roadblock. There may be hope for them yet as other teams quibble.

Argh ... Kent and Vyxsin are out of the Roadblock first. Zev and Justin still last. Wait! K&V are taking a cab while the rules are to go on foot! YES!

Pit Stop -
1. Globetrotters - won a trip to the Cook Islands
2. Kisha and Jen
3. Kent and Vyxsin - 30 minute penalty
3. Gary and Mallory
4. Zev and Justin!!! Yes!
5. Kent and Vyxsin PHILIMINATED!

Good evening all...Jackie!

Caela said...

Hey everyone! This must be a record for on-time starts this season!

Delee said...

Not sure who I am rooting for now Cowboys gone!

meb said...

I made it Jackie... hi all. Sad the cowboys are gone, but surely there's someone still there to root for.

monty924 said...

Hello everyone... still cleaning up from dinner so I'll be observing for awhile. :)

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks.

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. I hope everyone had a nice week.

Petals said...

Hello all!

Petals said...

No sports to delay 60 Minutes, good! And then Celebrity Apprentice!

Petals said...

I am shocked that the goth kids are still in the race.

monty924 said...

Kent the drama queen... I'd have to punch him if he and I were partners!

Joe in NY said...

Hi Petals,

How are you doing?

Becky said...

Monty, I wonder if Vuxsin is trying to drop the drama queen into oblivion? I would!

meb said...

When I saw in the previews that Kynt was screaming 'stop' I thought he was just being a whimp. This is funny! Is she deaf!

Jackie said...

Petals - I hope they leave tonight! But I'm thinking it might be time for another non-elim.

Petals said...

Joe, I've been worried about you! I am great.

Caela said...

K&V are soooo annoying! i hope they are gone after tonite

Petals said...

How do the goth couple have time to do their freak makeup? Drama queen is right!

Petals said...

Globetrotters are sweet.

Caela said...

go globetrotters!!!!

Delee said...

Bunch up time?

Becky said...

Since the Cowboys are gone I am rooting for Mallory and dad or the sisters.

Delee said...

What's with the tiny shovels! LOL

Caela said...

oh no! zev and justin! switch tasks!!!

monty924 said...

I feel bad for Zev and Justin! :( I think they should have switched when they saw Gary and Mallory leave, but we don't know what kind of real time its been.

Becky said...

The GT are nice and funny too. I am over my disappointment in them last week. I hope they come in third.

Delee said...

Chocolate Roaming Gnome Yum

Petals said...

FUN task! They are in my fave's country (Roger Federer), wish I was there.

Petals said...

Watch the goth kids put eyeliner on the gnome.

Delee said...

HAHA Petals, you and your tennis players!

Caela said...

there was alot of hating on the GTs onother sites last week! I know eveyrone loves the cowboys but it was a good move, imo! Im hoping the sisters or Z&J or the GTs win!

Petals said...

Delee - yup. I'm a tennis groupie.: )

Petals said...

freaks. grrrr

Delee said...

Yes, Kent let's harden chocolate in the oven! Oh My Shut Up!

Becky said...

I don't think Kent is working with a full load. Oven/chocolate -- LOLOLOL

Petals said...

Like, do they make a deal with producers to delay filming them until they are "gothed-up"? And are they carrying all the hair implements & products with them? And if so, how does all that junk not slow them down?

Petals said...

Go GT! Tell 'em!

Delee said...

Maybe it is permanent eyeliner!

Petals said...

He could snap that little girly-man over his leg.

monty924 said...

They're ready to throw down this week. :)

Caela said...

id be blaming her! she would be giving my bottom back!

monty924 said...

Hahaha Petals (8:38). It would be a TAR first, but I'd likey!

Petals said...

Delee - seriously? Even if it is permanent liner, there is the hair. Looking that freaky is a process. Everyone else looks bedraggled, which is to be expected in this game. But the freaks? They ALWAYS look lik they are on their way to a Lady Gaga concert.

Becky said...

Okay, I have to say this.... the GT did not complaine when the girls gave them the mileage last week. If they hadn't gotten it then they would have finished last... and be gone. Karma. Did V really take it. Who said they were putting their's on the bottom?

Jackie said...

Caela - With the teams left, the Goths are about the only ones who totally annoy me. I'd like Zev and Justin, then the Globes, then Gary and Mallory, then Jen and Kisha ... even they have grown on me more this season.

But both Kent and Vyxsin are annoying me, him more than her. But she has her moments for sure.

Petals said...

agree Ms Jackie.

Caela said...

Anyone but K&V for the win! I really like all the other teams! I dont know how the other teams dont like smack Kent! sooo annoying!

Joe in NY said...

I missed it...did she really steal it?

Becky said...

K&V annoy me too, Jackie.

Petals said...

dunno if she took it, but I like having another reason to root against them.

Joe in NY said...

Globetrotters are kind of being asses...did she actually steal it?

Caela said...

they are just talking trash. Part of their basketball background. K&V need to stop being such girls!

Delee said...

Jackie you may get your wish!

monty924 said...

LOL, I love it... Taxi = Big Penalty!

Petals said...

Go EVERYONE but Goth!

Becky said...

Looks like the PIAs did a no-no.

monty924 said...

Yay Baby!!!

Petals said...

WOOHOOOOOO!!!! Go GT!

Caela said...

WOOOHOOO!! GO GLOBETROTTERS!!!!!

Caela said...

way to blame ur gf, Kent!

Petals said...

nenner nenner nenner

monty924 said...

YES!!! Bye whiners!

Petals said...

Oh wow. What a stroke of luck. This music reminds me of Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula.
HAHAHAH Buh BYE!

Caela said...

happiest day ever! GT in first and goths going home!!!!

Delee said...

OH Barf, she is taking the best teammate with her!

Petals said...

What a pita for them to fly with all that metal in thier faces.

Joe in NY said...

Really don't care about any of these teams...then again maybe it's just my attitude! :)

Won't see you on Wednesdays, sad to say, puppy class starts this week.

Have a good week, folks!

Delee said...

Everyone stay safe this week and praying for "spring" weather for all!

Thanks Jackie!

Becky said...

Her bad attitude? She has bad taste, yes. (She looks like Raggedy Ann in that get up.) But I am so glad to color them gone.

Petals said...

LOL, Delee. hahaha

monty924 said...

Flight Time's gnome was on the bottom shelf. I don't know if V took it, but his wasn't there when he went back for it.

Jackie said...

Happy dance time! I actually liked them the first season, but he's become Mr. FussyPants this season and she's not all that much better.

monty924 said...

Have a great week, Joe. See all of you fine folks on Wednesday!

Delee said...

2 hour finale next week!

Becky said...

Everyone have a great week. Catch you later.

Delee said...

Oooh was in the Keys at Christmas time! Let me race that!

meb said...

So glad they are gone! Now I now some of you may like Mallory and her Dad, and they are ok... but she is so annoying with that scream of her's..every single time, over and over.. oh..excuse me.. I guess I was getting carried waay.

Anyway, I really don't have a favorite... don't care at this point who wins... just not the GT... they got rid of the cowboys... they are on my list!

Petals said...

See you guys Wednesday (or Sunday)! What a great ending to this ep.

dla said...

So looking forward to the episode tonight, but interrupted due to the amazing announcement about Bin Laden... TEAM USA!

Thank you for the update. Will try to catch it online this week.

Donna in AL said...

I am pulling for Zev and Justin or Mallory and Gary. Guess I consider them all the underdogs.

Jennasmom said...

SO glad Kent & Vyxsin are "DUN"! Couldn't take any more of his whining.

I went to a princess party with a bunch little girls and none of them were as prissy as Kent! BARF!
