The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business Season Finale Blog Party


Wow, it's actually starting on time again this week for the big season finale! That might be more amazing than the race itself.

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!

Who's going to win? My personal hope is that Justin and Zev get the million. But I'm pretty much okay with any of the remaining teams winning since Kent and Vyxsin got the boot last week. I SO didn't want them to win! My blog pool team is the Globetrotters.

They're off to Brazil. Due to bad cabbie luck, the Globetrotters are a half-hour behind the other teams. The Roadblock has them dancing the samba. Gary and Mallory have taken over the lead. Zev is having dancing troubles.

Yipes, hair waxing ahead!

Detour - On the Rocks or On the Beach -- making local drink, sell bikini tops.

YES! Zev finally got the dance down! Gary and Mallory in the lead, then Kisha and Jen, Zev and Justin, the Globetrotters. Uh-oh, Zev and Justin lost, Globes pass them. Zev and Justin are the only team choosing to sell bikinis. Justin speaks Portuguese (or at least Spanish).

It looks dismal for Zev and Justin.

Pit Stop
1. Gary and Mallory - won a Mediterranean Cruise
2. Kisha and Jen
3. Globetrotters

Rats, my favorite team is last to the Pit Stop. They're eliminated.

Now the remaining three teams are heading to Miami, Florida.

Roadblock - dry-docking a boat. Gary and Mallory have a bad cabbie and aren't to the Roadblock yet.

Roadblock - searching for a treasure chest in a submersible.

After finding yet another clue, they have to set up a trailer site. Jen and Kisha currently in the lead, Globes at their heels. Gary and Mallory behind and using the same bad cabbie they had before.

Kisha and Jen in the lead, Globes right behind them riding tricycles over the 7 Mile Bridge.

Jen and Kisha WIN The Amazing Race!

Hi Jackie, I hope Vincent made you something special for today! :)

Caela said...

woo hoo!!!! on time for the finale!! lets go Globetrotters! my pool team is Mal and her dad! But id rather the sisters win if its not the trotters!

monty924 said...

I'm kind of happy with any of them winning. FIrst time I could say that watching the Amazing Race, lol!

Becky said...

I hope the brothers or the sisters win. I have Mal and Dad too, but like the other two teams better.

Caela said...

first time in the history of the pool that my team has made it to the end. I usually get the Big Brother player that goes first or second or TAR team that goes early. Im celebrating!!!

Caela said...

oh no!!!!! thats a big difference in flight times!!!

monty924 said...

Dangit... Big Easy, you dope!

monty924 said...

Caela, its a first for me as well. Go Trotters...

Joe in NY said...

hi folks

monty924 said...

TAR meets DWTS, lol!

monty924 said...

H'lo Joe!

Joe in NY said...

doesn't seem like a very fair road block. I don't know that I'd ever get through it.

Becky said...

I've been asked to dance by males who dance like the brother!

Waxing? OUCH!!! Boy wouldn't Ralph (on Survivor) be in trouble?

monty924 said...

Feel bad for Zev, and I can't wait to see Flight Time or Big Easy do this!

Jackie said...

I hope Zev gets passable on the dance. Maybe they can give him some alcohol! :-)

monty924 said...

OMG, Becky - Ralph would scream like a girl. That would have to hurt a guy... even one not so, um hairy. Reminds me of the '40 year old virgin'.

Caela said...

GT are still in it!!! Cmon guys!!

monty924 said...

On the ROCKS!!! Sounds like our kind of task, lol

Caela said...

as big as he is, Big Easy looks comfortable dancing. LOL at his outfit!

monty924 said...

They were hilarious dancing on their other season. Was it Dutch? I can't remember...

monty924 said...

This will be bad for Zev as well. I'm not sure how he'll handle the waxing.

Becky said...

Am I the only one who thinks the challenges are harder this year. I am surprised that the GT did not get the dance approval the first time. He looked pretty good to me.

Caela said...

whoa they are hairy!!!

Caela said...

"whats the penalty for knocking her out cold" LOL!!!!

Becky said...

I don't think I ever told everyone hello. Hope you Moms had a wonderful day.

Hey, everyone!

monty924 said...

It was a bittersweet Mothers Day for me, Becky. Took roses (red) to the grave. The first year I haven't spent it in the 'flesh' with her, but the flip side is she is in heaven spending another wonderful Mothers Day with my Grandmother, and her first one with my brother who died as a newborn. :)

monty924 said...

Congrats to Gary and Mallory! Had them last time as my pool pick, but I'm still rooting for the GT's this time. ;)

monty924 said...

I hope CBS is just messing with us to make it interesting. Grrr

monty924 said...

YAY!!! Feel bad for Zev and Justin...

Becky said...

Monty, I am so sorry. I am fortunate to still have my Momma with me. She will be 93 in July.

Caela said...

:( im sad! i really thought they would win it all!!!

monty924 said...

Thanks Becky. Hold your momma tight! <3 That's an amazing age. My grandmother (I mentioned) lived to 93. She was an amazing women also and my Momma took after her. Mom was 85, so I have longevity in my family. :)

I"m actually excited for the end city and run for the million. Three great teams in it this year. Go Trotters!

Becky said...

I hope the sisters win now.

meb said...

Too bad... I'm still not sure who to root for!

monty924 said...

Whoa... will that be a penalty?

Caela said...

r they going to get in trouble for not having their backpacks?

Becky said...

It's going to be bitter sweet for the sisters if the GT win because the girls told them the milage during that one leg.

Becky said...

Where are Mallory and her dad. Oh, no!

Caela said...

get out of the cab!!! omg! i cant believe how many racers have been lost bc of a bad cab driver!

Becky said...

Caela, looks like our team is out.

Caela said...

I know Becky! So close! i will never get bragging rights! I better get a good BB houseguest this year!

monty924 said...

I just thought of it... they don't have their backpacks and any notes they've taken during the race. That could hurt them on the final task???

Caela said...

i wasnt thinking about notes. I just thought u had to have your belongings when u got to the finish line?

meb said...

Why didn't they just make him stop and ask someone! He was texting... CALL... how dumb! I feel so bad for them!

monty924 said...

That could be also, but I know teams have dropped their packs in the final run to the mat, so it will be interesting to see what that shot of the bags going onto the checked luggage track means. ??

Donna in AL said...

I wanted Zev and Justin to win and if not father and daughter. Now looks like they might not make it either!!

monty924 said...

This could be a needle in a haystack!

Caela said...

that looks like a fun task!!i hope the sisters can do it! water is not their friend!

monty924 said...

I'm on the edge of my chair.... drama tonight!

Jackie said...

I want one of those personal sub doohickies!

meb said...

Taxi left the GT... They'll probably grab the guy that Mallory and her dad have and then he'll get lost... bad move if it happens...

monty924 said...

I would have ditched that cab after the first screw up...

Caela said...

i read an interview with Phil and he said it was a close finish! im on the edge of my seat!!!

PS- Did anyone see that Megan and Cheynne (sp) from season 15 (i think) got married? Had 3 TAR teams in the wedding party. Article also said that Miss America Ericka and her hubby got divorced. That ends the gossip update for the day =)

Delee said...

Sorry late to the party...was looking at bridal stuff online and i-chatting with Amanda, but watching the show!

monty924 said...

That women is right out of the 1970's. Can anyone say "bad hair" decade?

Becky said...

Those girls are strong.... and tough!

Delee said...

Really gray sky behind them!

Becky said...

Monty, I thought of Mullet Woman from Survivor. Can't remember her name.

Joe in NY said...

Becky - Shambo!

monty924 said...

Haha, yes Shambo had the bad hair too! I was talking about that 'rats nest' tease job! :)

monty924 said...

Joe you are quick, LOL!

Becky said...

Thanks for the name. Hey, Joe, how is the puppy?

Joe in NY said...

Hi Becky,

Puppy is over 50 pounds and still growing. MOSTLY house-broken but keeping me up every night.

monty924 said...

The mullet, I had one (lol) was more of an 80's do! :)

Becky said...

If I had known I would be on TV I would have had my roots done?

Meb, I am rooting for the sisters. They were raised by a single mother. They want to make life easier for her.

monty924 said...

Come on Trotters, lets go!!!

Becky said...

Joe, is the drag on the house breaking #1 or #2?

Joe in NY said...

pro atheletes against the girls against the old guy...no contest

Joe in NY said...

Becky - #1

Joe in NY said...

occasionally...usually when she's tired

monty924 said...

LOL, my honey just said it looked like Miss Rose had a bird's nest in it!

Becky said...

If it is #2, take her outside as soon as she eats and walk her around.

Joe in NY said...

they must not have been as close as they made it seem

monty924 said...

Go GIRL Power... nice!

Caela said...

im so happy for them!!!!

Joe in NY said...

Becky, the other day she was very tired. I took her out, left her there for 10 minutes she started barking to come in, I let her in. 30 seconds later she's peeing in the kitchen.

monty924 said...

Great Mother's Day Gift!

Delee said...

Glad they won, but anyone except Kent and Vxysin(?)

Becky said...

Good, I am pleased. I think they could use the money more.

Becky said...

Guess the bag being left didn't matter.

Caela said...

Zev in his jammies!!! Love that!!!!

Delee said...

Liked they did not have to drag their backpacks through this last leg, like other seasons

Caela said...

Alright guys! It was a fun season! See everyone in a couple of months for Big Brother!!!! =)

monty924 said...

Another great TAR season and my best finish in the POOL. See you all Wednesday and then next Sunday for the Finale of Survivor!

Becky said...

Joe, the next time she has an accident, wipe it up with a paper towel and seal it in a zip-lock bag. The next time you take her out, place the paper on the ground and let her sniff it. See if that works.

Becky said...

Night all. See you Wednesday.

Jackie said...

Thanks everyone! It's been a great season!

meb said...

Yes Jackie... a great season... at least I was able to get over here on occasion.

got caught up in Celebrity Apprentice and didn't get here to say goodnight to everyone.

Now... on to BB!

Jennasmom said...

Was a fun season! Thanks, Jackie!
