The Amazing Race 19 Blog Party - 10/30/2011


The show is delayed AGAIN here in the NYC area. 60 Minutes is starting at 7:29 PM ET, so we're talking a half-hour. Grr. Once it starts here, I'll update this post with the major happenings. But the real fun is in the comments; please pipe in with your thoughts! See you there!

The teams are flying off to Africa! They're all on the same flight, so it will be an even playing field once again. Roadblock -- they have to deliver tobacco bales to a warehouse.

Detour - Building toy trucks or sewing. Uh-oh! My blog pool pick team has fallen into last place (Amani and Marcus). Eep. They're still in the warehouse with Bill and Cathi ahead of them. I expected Marcus to do much better with the bales than he did. The last task they have is taking two beds to the Pit Stop.

Pit Stop order:
1. Justin and Jennifer - did not pay their truck driver. Oops. Penalty -- must go back.
2. 1. Andy and Tommy - won a trip to the Virgin Islands
2. Justin and Jennifer
3. Bill and Cathi (didn't pay, must go back) - Sandy and  Jeremy
4. Laurence and Zac
5. Ernie and Cindy
6. Bill and Cathi
7. Amani and Marcus - NON-PHILIMINATION LEG! YAY! They're still in it!

meb said...

Waiting too. Hey Joe, Silk and Jackie... Let's go snowboarders!

Jackie said...

Recap ... theme music ...

Becky said...

Hey Jackie and all the watchers and lurkers.

Joe in NY said...

hi folks. Petals? Where are you?

Jackie said...

She's playing around on FB, Joe. I told her that you're looking for her.

Jackie said...

The workers at the tobacco warehouse really got into the fun during the Roadblock!

meb said...

You have to feel bad for the ones who got caught in that traffic, but I guess it's all part of the game. My boarders are there and doing well. Yay!

Late but made it before the show ended for once.

Jackie said...

Hey Monty!

How are you feeling MEB?

Joe in NY said...

MEB! I heard you were under the weather. Glad to see you in computer shape, at the very least. How are you?

monty924 said...

This is the year for the first places teams to move to last in one task... or it seems so to me.

Come on Bill and Cathi

Jackie, glad you got your electric back on. Sometimes it goes out here when the wind blows. So aggravating!

Joe in NY said...

If the previews are to be believed, Cochran is going to make a move on Survivor. Makes Ozzy's move look even dumber, whether he survives RI or not...

Jackie said...

The more I see Laurence (Zac's Dad), the more he irks me. Must every woman be able to sew?

Joe in NY said...

I don't ever remember so many last to first and first to last in previous seasons. They usually bunch them up into two (or three) groups at transport points making it hard to go last to first or first to last. I wonder if they've intentionally changed the transports to make the order more fluid.

monty924 said...

Oh, I hope it isn't difficult. If anyone can do it, she can. Fingers crossed here.

monty924 said...

Yeah, I'm not liking the Dad so much tonight. I can sew, but I've been doing it since I was 8 years old in 4-H. Not all women sew and he's a little sexist to say so.

Laurie said...

meb, you have the snowboarders? Maybe I'll slide on to your floaty. I'm adrift over here since my LV gals got the boot. I was surprised they didn't lose the first night!
Hi everyone!

Becky said...

Whew, I got off and had a heck of a time getting back to the blog.

Becky said...

I like the snowboarders, but I wanted someone else to place first for a change.

Becky said...

My team just went kapoot! I don't like the dating couple much. Who else didn't pay. Boy the older couple impress me.

Becky said...

Darn!

Becky said...

Good, I am glad they weren't sent home.

Becky said...

See you guys Wed night. Guess I better look for a new Snoopy.

meb said...

I love it when they are all still in the race! Happy Halloween all!

Jackie said...

Phew! My bog pool team got saved!

meb said...

Sorry Jackie, Joe I wasn't reading as I went. I'm well... not as drastic as it sounded... if they had found what was wrong the frist week, I wouldn't have ended up in there the second week. It's all good. I have a bleeding ulcer that is easily taken care of by being good and taking the meds.

Thanks for asking.

meb said...

Laurie, jump on board... room for all. (You guys didn't know I had a boat in this pool did you?)

monty924 said...

Happy for Bill and Cathi and Amani and Marcus.

So many non-elimination legs this season. I can't remember so many before but haven't watched every season.

Happy Halloween to all and will see you on Wednesday.

Glad they didn't get eliminated.
