The Amazing Race 19 Blog Party - 11/13/2011


The show is starting on time here on the East Coast in a few minutes. Once it starts, 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 heading to Copenhagen! Double U-Turn ahead. Uh-oh ... Marcus and Amani are still at the airport while the other teams are already in Copenhagen!

The Roadblock has a team member dancing an historical dance in traditional costume.

Marcus and Amani have caught up to Jeremy and Sandy.


Detour - All hopped up has them racing rabbits in a course. All churned out has them making butter.


Ack! Ernie and Cindi team U-Turned Bill and Cathi! Bill and Cathi U-Turned Laurence and Zac.


Pit Stop --
1. Ernie and Cindy, won a trip to Fiji.
2. Bill and Cathi
3. Andy and Tommy
4. Amani and Marcus
5. Jeremy and Sandy
6. Laurence and Zac - Philiminated

They cut 60 Minutes short, think I will Faint! I think I know why too!

meb said...

Why delee?

Delee said...

There was something about how Congress can use insider knowledge to buy stocks and Pelosi was to be interviewed! So someone did some quick talking to can the story! Read about it I think in the Washington Post or NYTimes this morning.

meb said...

Copenhagen... Wow! Ford Focus... that's what I drive. :)

Delee said...

Wonder if they will go to Legoland in Denmark?

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. I hope we have more people here tonight.

Delee, the story was covered on our station. The story started on time here.

Delee said...

60 Minutes started here at 730p E but then AR started at 8p E. Never has happened before!

Delee said...

How did they fall behind, I missed it!

Jackie said...

Marcus and Amani went with the original flight scheduled by TAR instead of looking for quicker options like all the other teams.

meb said...

If you saw other contestants trying to get better tickets, wouldn't you at least try instead of assuming you'd all be on the same flight.

Oh well... let's see how far behind they are.

BTW... thanks Delee... I'll bet you're right about 60 minutes.;

Petals said...

hi guys

Petals said...

i didnt watch 60 min. what do they do at the end of the hour now?

Delee said...

Phil loves to have a dancing part each year!

Delee said...

No idea Petals as I usually do not watch it...they cut the part I wanted to see!

Becky said...

Okay, let's name things that you would do if you knew -- or planned to apply to be on Amazing Race...
1. If you don't know how to drive a stick shift, learn.
2. Practice eating strange foods -- and being able to keep them down.
3. Practoce, practice, practice reading clues all the way through and being aware of signs at stop offs (leaving all your money if told to).
4. Figure out how you can pack your bag so you can utilize your clothes in more than one way. Toss what you can after you have worn it, especially toward the end of the race.
5. Buy a fanny pack and wear it! Do NOT take it off unless you are in the water. Better yet, buy one that is water proof.

Any more suggestions?

Bunnies YEA!

Becky said...

Cute task with the rabbits!

Delee said...

Good list, think I might need dance lessons beforehand! Train for all the running!

meb said...

Armani and Marcus can't seem to do anything right today. Feel bad for them.

Becky said...

Two good suggestions, Delee. Especially training -- not only to run, but to climb, but to rapell. On, and being able to hold your breath under water.

Becky said...

Petals, where is your sweetie, Joe?

Delee said...

Come on, someone do the BUNNIES!

Petals said...

Joe was home earlier...then he was going shopping. Hmm...he is prolly lurking in the loft here. LOL

Becky said...

I like Zack, but his father is a PIA.

Becky said...

Whoops, I no longer care for my team! They u-turned my favorites.

Delee said...

How cute is that? Great jumping Mr Bunny!

Becky said...

I love the rabbit agility race.

Delee said...

Anyone ever really churned butter...oh my achy arms! Hard to do.

My team 1st again, but I am worried about karma, next week!

Petals said...

hope no one hurts the bunnies...

Petals said...

I want one of those bunnies. My neice has several floppy-eareds, and they are box trained and everything.

Petals said...

omg, that is adorable!!!!!!

Delee said...

Wish I had known about bunny agility. I could have trained Wobbles! Haha!

Jackie said...

Those rabbits are SO cute!

meb said...

I just don't think I'd leave anywhere until I had asked someone how to get to the next place.

Petals said...

is Zack the cute shaggy kid?

Jackie said...

I'm cheering on my blog pool Marcus and Amani -- they just might make it!

But I'm loving that my personal favorites -- Bill and Cathi -- continue to do so well. Fantastic!

Delee said...

I agree Meb, unless you are an expert at reading maps, that would be a thing to do!

Joe in NY said...

hi folks,

Sorry. Got home late.

Petals said...

those bunnies are like little Mogwai!

Petals said...

Did you get my stuff??

Delee said...

I have not had a team this year that I rooted for to go. Less drama with heated disagreement! Just minor spats!

Joe in NY said...

LOL, Petals.

Have you been naughty or nice?

Petals said...

hon, LOOK!!!

Petals said...

i cant get over the cuteness

Petals said...

the bunnycam, adorable, those little furry butts

Petals said...

I've been super nice & you know it. Did you at least smell it?

Delee said...

That is surprising, thought they would be last, not the Zac and Lawerence!

It's nice when my least favorite team gets the boot! I liked Zac okay, but Laurence is one overbearing dude.

Petals said...

g'nite. gotta go walk with the dead!

monty924 said...

Great!! My two favorite teams are still in there. Marcus and Amani and Bill and Cathi. Haven't watched it yet, but just had to peek at the elimination spoiler. Bill and Cathi are surely surprising me and I LOVE it!

See everyone on Wednesday night. :)
