The Amazing Race 19 Blog Party - 11/20/2011


Due to football, 60 Minutes didn't start until 7:23 PM ET here in the NYC viewing area. So I'm assuming that The Amazing Race should start about 23 minutes late. 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!

It's almost immediately into a Roadblock -- memorizing a Hans Christian Andersen poem, going on a trip, then repeating the poem from memory. After Roadblock success, they're off to Legoland! Yikes! They have to put together a Lego puzzle while spinning on a ride.

The teams are then off to Hamburg, Germany.

Eek, my emotional favorite team, Bill and Cathi, are lost trying to find LegoLand.

From Hamburg, teams are off to Brussels, Belgium -- the third country in the day. Uh-oh, Cindy and Ernie lost their train tickets and can't afford to buy more. They lucked out, no conductors checked for tickets.

Body-building routine is next. Heehee.

Pit Stop --

1. Amani and Marcus - won a trip to Panama
And it's immediately to the next leg without the rest of the finish order. I'm assuming it might be non-elim.

Hey, Jackie. How is the weather up there. I loved the pictures today. Unfortunately the tree leaves down here go from green to d-e-a-d.

Jackie said...

The weather today was cloudy and temps in the low 60s. Can't complain about that in late November in the Northeast!

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks.

I agree about the weather, Jackie. It's been a nearly perfect November

Delee said...

I called it last week...Legoland!

Good evening all!

Petals said...

Hey Becky, Hey Jackie, Hey Delee, Hey Pumpkin.

Petals said...

"wintery mix" here. Ugh

Petals said...

You DID call it, Delee

Becky said...

Hey, Joe and Delee. I was beginning to think Jackie would be stuck with just me tonight.

Becky said...

Hey, Petals.

Petals said...

I like the snowboarders. I'm not swimming this TAR.

Delee said...

When in Travel and Tourism school, my intl report was on Denmark. Had to do a one week travel plan.

Petals said...

of topic: we had a total sitcom moment at dinner. Max, the boxer, stood at the buffet and ate an entire chocolate pie while we were eating dinner in the other room. The plate wass clean, not a crumb left.

Becky said...

Good, I was afraid for the older company. I just caught a glimpse, who loses their tickets?

Jackie said...

Heh, Petals.

Delee said...

Must have been a delicious pie, but now you will never know. Dogs will sneak anything they can get there teeth on!

Jackie said...

It would be so cool if Bill and Cathi (the older couple) won it all even if they're not my blog pool team. They're doing the best of any older couple surrounded by younger racers so far. And they have a great relationship, too.

Petals said...

there were other pies & desserts. he had a whipped cream moustache. it was too funny.

Delee said...

I am sorry that guy is creepy!

Becky said...

Petals, I am LOL. Max sounds like a Beagle, not a Boxer! One of my buddies told about the time her dog got on the table celebrating her nephews high school graduation party for her nephew and drank most of the punch. They didn't have enough punch to throw it out so they just added what they had left. They figured that high school kids wouldn't know -- and they didn't.

Petals said...

LOL Becky - punch? Was it spiked?

Petals said...

i would get so motion sick

Becky said...

I hope the older couple wins too, Jackie.

I would be tossing my cookies if I was on that ride.

Becky said...

No, it was for high school kids.

Anonymous said...

Hi all. Late.

I couldn't ride in that ride. I'd lose my cookies.

Penny

Becky said...

What is on the ground? Is it the ticket?

Petals said...

hey Penny

At least they didnt have some big food task before the spinning ride.

Anonymous said...

I love the snowboarders.

I have a beagle and she's just great. Such loving dogs. I really love to watch her dance for her dinner. She's old, but so sweet.

Penny

Becky said...

Ahhh, one of the legos!

Delee said...

One of their puzzle pieces flew out of the car, so they will not be able to finish w/o it!

Jackie said...

What guy is creepy?

Delee said...

The theatre dude!

Delee said...

OK now will they go to Mannequin Piss in Brussels or have to eat brussel sprouts! HAHA

Our Beagle, Sarah, ate a chocolate pie 4 years ago at Thanksgiving. I didn't see her and asked my husband where she was. He said he didn't know. He found her in the dining room. She came in with a guilty look. My husband said the pies looked okay. However she had whipped creme on her whiskers, she ate almost the whole pie. LOL

When we had our first mini-dachshund, he did something similar. My FIL would buy these expensive, real chocolate covered cherries. We blocked the tree so Scrappy wouldn't knock it down. We got home and it was down. So were all the chocolate covered cherries. He licked off the chocolate and left the cherries. LOL It must have taken him forever! Heehee.

Penny

Petals said...

Penny - now that is funny to imagine. But cute, too.

Joe in NY said...

CHOCOLATE IS TOXIC TO DOGS. If there is real chocolate in that pie vomiting should be induced immediately.

Joe in NY said...

Hi Petals

Delee said...

There he is>>>>>>>>

Petals said...

Joe - this pie was chocolate flavored pie filling, we checked. Not a toxic amount.

Becky said...

My team is the one who lost their ticket! Oh, well, then I can cheer for Bill and Cathi. I hope they find it. See why I listed fanny pack as something you need if you do the race?

Petals said...

omg, it's name is Mannequin Piss? LOL

Anonymous said...

LOL. The Marquis De Pissere! I think that's how you say it. LOL

Penny

Jackie said...

Chocolate is even more toxic to cats. But, luckily, their taste bud receptors have no interest in it ... unlike dogs.

Becky said...

Penny, those are funny stories.

Delee said...

The X brought me a small statue of it! My team too Becky...grrrr!

But if you do not put your stuff in the fanny pack...then...oops!

Petals said...

is that where the word "piss" came from? from that kid peeing?

Anonymous said...

Some dogs can tolerate it better than others. When my two dogs ate the chocolate, it didn't make them sick. Scrappy was a puppy and it came up anyway. LOL, much to my FIL's dislike. Heehee.

Delee said...

Not sure I want to see this! My "EYES"

Anonymous said...

Oh gosh! It IS Manneken Pis. How absolutely funny!

I loved Brussels, it's a very pretty city. The modern Glass building was awesome.

Penny

Delee said...

Screenshots Jackie PLZ!

Anonymous said...

LOL. Those are some SMALL outfits!

Anonymous said...

Ooooh, but the Snowboarders look rather NICE. LOL

Oooh, so does the ex-NFLer!!!


LOL

Penny

Joe in NY said...

That may be the most humiliating challenge in TAR history. OMG!

Becky said...

Lordy, what a horrible leg for the contestants!

Petals said...

man, roger's long tennis shorts are so much sexier...IMO

Delee said...

Where did Cindy get those horrible bruises?

Petals said...

yikes...especially the women, because i dont even wax unless i am in a relationship. I guess maybe the producers warn them to groom?

Becky said...

I agree, Joe. Just looking at what they had to wear was enough to make me cringe.

Petals said...

funny, ernie's exit skittle

Becky said...

Everyones two favorite teams might be in trouble.

Anonymous said...

Dang it. That has to be very frustrating.

Penny

Delee said...

Marcus and Amani to the pitstop, glad they got a first finish!

Delee said...

A continue leg...yikes!

Becky said...

I'm glad Amani and Marcus won this leg.

Frankly, after what everyone went through, no one should be eliminated.... extended race or not.

Becky said...

I am off. See you next week. I am just hoping I can talk the family let me watch Survivor on Thursday.

Anonymous said...

Well. to be continued...

I won't be here Wednesday night, going up North for Thanksgiving.

Hope it wonderful for everyone.

Will miss Survivor...:-(

Penny

Petals said...

My friend was having a thanksgiving dinner and prepared a
12 pound turkey.

We were all in the living room having drinks and her golden retriever managed to open the refrigerator and eat most of the
turkey.

She just started screaming and
laughing at the same time
