The Amazing Race 19 Blog Party - 12/04/2011


Oh my goodness, I don't know what to do with myself. Why do I say that? Well, The Amazing Race is actually starting on time here in the NYC viewing area! I might just have to faint.

As the action happens, I'll be updating this post with the major happenings. But the real fun is in the comments; please pipe in with your thoughts! See you there!

Coming out of the Pit Stop, they have to dress up in costume as two "famous comic strip characters." Then they have to find out WHO they are! That's different! They're detectives Johnson and Johnson from TinTin. 

Then it's off to Panama City! After receiving tattoos which lead them to San Francisco Bay Tower, a Roadblock has them walking a tightrope over the city.

Next up is a Detour with a choice of Filet or Sole. The first is delivering fish, the second is making sandals.

No team is having luck with finding the clue to the Pit Stop on the dancers. However, Tommy and Andy took off thinking it's something to do with Balboa. That just might cost them the race. The other three teams are still at the dancers trying to find the clue. Uh-oh. Amani and Marcus seem to be going to the same place as Andy and Tommy. Ack!

Tommy and Andy went back and found the Panama Viejo clue.

Pit Stop --

1. Jeremy and Sandy - won a trip
2. Ernie and Cindy
3. Marcus and Amani!!! (My blog pool team!)

Andy and Tommy won six legs and now they're gone.

Hey Jackie and everyone.

~~~ Splash~~~ (although it may be a bit too cold for swimming)

Sue on the left coast

Nickelpeed said...

Dang, the guys will get it wrong. :-(

Jackie said...

That boat ride looks scary!

Becky said...

Is everyone cozy and warm? Ready for Christmas? Psssfftt! Like sure. Everything is wrapped, the house is decorated and I am not telling the truth.

Jackie, is Santa Paws coming to see Vincent? Calvin has been sleeping under our tree since I put it up.

Becky said...

I keep singing that he's getting nuttin' for Christmas, cause he's been nuttin' but bad. He doesn't believe me either.

The boys seem to really enjoy their trip.

Nickelpeed said...

Getting there Becky.

I know a lot of people would really rather someone else aside from Tommy and Andy; but these guys are good. I like them. They are so appreciative of everything. I think that's great.

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Amani and Marcus!!! GO!

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, I would NOT be able to do this challenge. o.O

Nickelpeed said...

Aren't these guys afraid of anything?

Becky said...

This is a big adventure for the guys.

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, I love your kitty picture!

Becky said...

The wire would be very slippery by the time I got back! And the people on the ground would think it was raining!

Nickelpeed said...

I guess you have to look at it that way. It's a big adventure. It really is. If you stress about it, you'll get no where.

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Amani. You've got to do this and hurry up!!!

Jackie said...

Becky - Santa will surely give Vincent something this year!

Nickelpeed said...

OMG, they should have stayed. I hope they do not fall behind. Yikes. I do not want them eliminated. :-(

Becky said...

They smell fishy, but they made good time.

Becky said...

My team is in third place now.

Nickelpeed said...

They made great time. I'm happy about that.

Isn't that clue on their dress?

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, that's where it is. Yikes. I think the guys are in trouble. :-( All the face time made me wonder if it was for a reason, and it just might be that they did not make it. Dang it. Come on guys.

Jackie said...

Not looking good for the boys!

~~Silk said...

Even knowing the clue is on the dress, I can't read it! That's hard.

Laurie said...

Hi everyone! I hope you all are doing well this Sunday evening. Just wanted to let you know I'm still alive. Now to read the comments.

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, so only one couple got it right. The guys have a chance...maybe.

Nickelpeed said...

Nope, oh shoot, shoot, shoot.

Nickelpeed said...

Waaaaaaaaaa

Becky said...

I think they are just jerking us around. They are all going to the wrong place. Since the boys went to the wrong place first, they got back to the girls and are now going to the right place.

Nickelpeed said...

sigh

Becky said...

Looks like I was wrong. Surprise, surprise.

Nickelpeed said...

That's it for the boys. Oh well. They played well.

Becky said...

WOW! The boys are out. One can't call the guys losers.... they won six legs and have some wonderful prizes.

Anonymous said...

I hope Amani and Marcus win.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, if it hadn't been for the taxi drivers, none of the other teams would have gotten there. Only one team had it right.

Nickelpeed said...

Good luck Amani and Marcus.

Becky said...

My team is still in the race, but I hope Amani and Marcus win too.

How *weird* is that the 3 remaining teams consist of :

a dating couple

an engaged couple

a married couple
