The Amazing Race 20 Blog Party - 03/11/12


Wow. We must be going for a record with the show starting on time once again here on the East Coast! Once it starts, I'll update this entry with the major events. However, the real fun is in the comments area. Please jump on in and share your thoughts on the teams, locations and challenges!

I do have a request, though. I received comments from some folks offended by some of the language and crudeness of comments on the recent Survivor episode. I have to say that I agree with them. I've always tried to keep this blog PG-rated and some of the name-calling of castaways (or a particular castaway) have gone far beyond that. Please stop. I'd rather this place remain fun for all and there's no need to be really, really crude. Merci!

The teams are heading to Italy!

The Border dudes were first to the Fast Forward clue. The Roadblock has a team member rappelling down a scary distance for a clue. Ford Focus product placement.

The Border agents made their second first place showing, winning $5,000 each.

Rachel and Brendon are fighting. Why am I not surprised?

The Detour is Clean Statue or Name That Salami. The latter has them naming 14 salamis, the first definitely sounds easier!

2. Rachel and Dave
3. Joey Fitness and Danny
4. Vanessa and Ralph
5. Nary and Jamie
6. Brendon and Rachel
7. Kerry and Staci
8. Kentucky ... Bopper and Mark ...  the Border Agents are splitting their winnings with them! And it's non-elimination! They're still in it! I'd rather watch these two than Brenchel.

What? I'm first. Hey, Jackie

Petals said...

Hey Jax & Bex!

Jackie said...

Hey, Becky. How is everything?

Petals said...

Yikes, sorry Jackie. I apologize for going over the line Thursday.

Jackie said...

I'm thinking we're due for a non-elimination leg.

Becky said...

Jackie, okay. It could be worse. My son was in a wreck and broke his leg. But he is alive! The idiot child bought a motorcycle.

Becky said...

Hey Petals.

Jackie said...

Thanks, Petals.

Becky said...

I think so too.... about the non-elim leg. Petals, I have no idea what you are talking about and I was here ... well, I was here Wed. I probably went over the line then too. But Co Co drove me to it.

Petals said...

Glad he is on the mend Becky! Boys love motorcycles, but motorcycles don't return the sentiment.

Becky said...

I apologize for some of my remarks if they upset anyone.

Petals said...

Yeah Becky - that person did drive all of us to it. He is ridiculously offensive.
I think I can't use the M word for him anymore. It just seemed to fit him, LOL.

My team is still in there! C'Mon guys!

Petals said...

Joe???

Jackie said...

Becky - I don't think it was your comments. So sorry to hear about your son's motorcycle accident. Bikes can be fun, but they can mess you up too!

Becky said...

I am usually not as ugly in my remarks, but he brought out my very unpleasant side.

SueGee said...

Good evening ladies & gents. Can't stick around - dinner is about to come out of the oven...Sunday chicken and stuffing!

SueGee on the Left Coast

Becky said...

Most men when they hit midlife buy a sports car! I preached against motorcycles all my life, but I can't control what my kids do now.

Becky said...

Hey, SueG

SueGee said...

The drinking word has to be a Rachael thing tonight from the previews

SG

SueGee said...

"I can't Do It" ??? or

Braaaannnnnddddoooonnnn

Petals said...

Sue!! MMmmmmm dinner sounds great! And the drinking word/phrase is perfect.

Jackie said...

Hey, SueGee!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi everyone!

Had the wonderful task of clipping two of my doggie's nails. Wow. LOL

SueGee said...

Hey Jackie!! I'm so in and out of these chats lately...but glad to read what you all have to say!

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

Did she just say, "You know how much that nose cost?"

Petals said...

Hey PennY!

Petals said...

It is so funny, the twangy music they play when they show the KY team, LOL

Petals said...

Leave it to Rachel and Brendan to think that the problem can be solved by "putting something in a hole", LMAO!!

Nickelpeed said...

I guess that's why they call them educated fools, Brendon?

Nickelpeed said...

Uh oh, so many of these couples are mad at each other. Hey, Brendon - Just because you think you are smart, doesn't make you really smart!!!

Becky said...

Penny, you are lucky they let you do it. We have to have our vet do it. They have to restrain Maggie.

Oh, boy, Brenchal are fighting again.

Becky said...

Penny, you are lucky they let you do it. We have to have our vet do it. They have to restrain Maggie.

Oh, boy, Brenchal are fighting again.

Petals said...

LOL. It seems so staged, the Benchel spats. To quote Jackie: @@

Nickelpeed said...

Becky, my husband is a big guy. He just about has to sit on Sarah for me to clip her nails. She almost bit him today. Trey is small, he didn't have much of a choice. LOL

Becky said...

Brenchel fussing is a given. But I hate to see the pilot and his wife get into it.

Janice said...

At least Brenchel is consistent on the way they act; they behave EXACTLY the same way they did on Big Brother!!
Shoot, this is really them, I was hoping they were "acting" before.......LOL yeah right!!

Janice/GA

meb said...

I'm surprised that Brenchel are so dense they can't figure out that the picture on the coin is a place they need to go!

Nickelpeed said...

Waaaaaaa, waaaaaaa. She never, never stops!!!

Becky said...

Oh, boy, it's tear times. Brendon will apologize to her, wait and see.

~~Silk said...

If Brendan thinks this is a strain on their relationship, they'd better not have a baby!

Becky said...

Oh, Silk, so correct.

Becky said...

Okay, I had to go finish supper. How did the other team get there so fast.

Nickelpeed said...

Go Rachel and Dave

I would NOT want to do the salami.

I would have indigestion all day!

Becky said...

Oh, Rachael, hush up! Stop whining.

Petals said...

The tearless cry.... egads! WHHAHHHHHHH

Nickelpeed said...

Oh Rachel - SHUT UP!!

Becky said...

We couldn't be so lucky as for her to actually step in front of a car!

Jackie said...

Becky - The border agents had the fast forward.

Jackie said...

Maybe Brenchel will quit!!!

Brent McKee said...

Rachel in full meltdown mode. How many times did she meltdown on two season of Big Brother?

Becky said...

Thanks, Jackie. I know a lot of people don't like them, but I give them some slack because of the hard job that border patrol has to do.

Becky said...

I am pulling for them and the military guy/wife.

SueGee said...

Janice? Where have you been LOL


SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

Who's going home???


Boy the girl's statue looked nice.

Petals said...

"Dysfunction Junction, what's your function?"

meb said...

I have decided they are doing this just to garner more camera time. No one is this stupid... even if they can't get it, you don't just stop... you keep trying...

Nickelpeed said...

I bet it's a non elimination.

SueGee said...

How many drinks do I need to catch up tonight??

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Nickelpeed said...

Dang, are Kentucky the last ones???

Yes! Hope it's a non elimination

Janice said...

Sue,
I usually have to record TAR and watch it later because Mark doesn't want to watch Brenchel (he refuses) BUT he went to bed early tonight so I got to watch it and follow the blog!!
YEAH!!

Janice/GA

SueGee said...

Name that salami sounds more like a BB game LOL

SG

Petals said...

Meb, you are too generous. I think being THAT stupid is absolutely possible, LOL!
That's my team!!

OMG, I am crying! I love those guys!

Petals said...

I'm pulling a Rachel, with real tears!

SueGee said...

Janice & I know each other

Nickelpeed said...

OMG! That is so nice. Wow.

YAYAYAYAYAY!!!

Petals said...

how OPPOSITE is this from the last Survivor ep? Wow.

Becky said...

Wonderful! I am so glad they aren't finished. Told you the Border Patrol were good guys!

Nickelpeed said...

Way opposite! Geesh, these guys are so nice.

SueGee said...

And I never get to watch TAR or BB or Survivor until 2 hours after these chats are over LOL

Sue

Janice said...

Oh I'm so glad the country boys (KY boys) aren't eliminated from the race!! I just love them and that was so nice of the Border Patrol to give them that money!! Amazing gesture of kindness!!

Janice/GA

meb said...

AWESOME!

Jackie said...

Well, the Border Patrol dudes showed their true colors, didn't they?

Big ol' softies! Good for them!

Becky said...

What a finish! Good show. And Petals, it is SO unlike Wed night.

Petals said...

Oh Sue, you are in for a great show. Very touching.

Now on to Celebrity Apprentice, then Walking Dead

Becky said...

Gotta go. My dirty little secret is I have followed Desperate Housewifes from thye beginning. I watched GCB lastg week, but won't watch it again.

Nickelpeed said...

See every one Wednesday!!! Hopefully I don't have to work.

Nickelpeed said...

Me, too Becky!!!

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by, everyone!
