The Amazing Race 20 Blog Party - 03/18/12


Sigh. We were getting spoiled with the show starting on time. March Madness basketball is now the sporting issue. To be honest, I have no clue when 60 Minutes started as I wasn't watching the game before it. Oh. Wait. That started at 7:44pm here on the East Coast. We can expect The Amazing Race at about 8:44pm. Argh.

Once it starts, I'll be updating this post with the major events. But the most action can be found in the comments section. I hope to see you there!

Teams are on their way to Bavaria via Austria.

The Detour deals with fairy tales and champion male (styling a man's beard). Bopper and Mark's Speed Bump has them yodeling. Most of the teams are going for the beard Detour.

The Border Patrol is first to the Roadblock -- sliding their roaming gnomes across ice to a bullseye. Meanwhile, most of the teams have gone to the wrong castle to find the Roadblock clue.

#1 AGAIN -- Art and JJ (Border Patrol) won a trip to Thailand.
2. Joey "Fitness" and Danny
3. Vanessa and Ralph
4. Rachel and Dave
5. Brendon and Rachel
6. Bopper and Mark!!!
7. Nary and Jamie
8. Kerri and Stacy -- Philiminated

stupid, squeaky, buzzy ball is on my CBS station. But here I am...

Hey guys! Did everyone survive St. Patrick's day?

Jackie said...

The show is finally about to start. People will probably come along now, Petals!

SueGee said...

Hi Jackie!! Howdy everyone - time for TAR to start? I'll be back in a few with some cold ones!!

hi ladies...

Joe in NY said...

I kind of hate when they bunch them all up again. Kind of undermines the advantage of doing really well in an earlier leg. I'd love for someone to do a "legless" race. LOL. Send 10 teams out there with no pit stops and whoever completes all the challenges and gets to the finish line first wins...even if they are a week ahead of the 2nd place team.

Petals said...

yay!

SueGee said...

Hey Joe, jackie & Petals

Nickelpeed said...

Hi, all!!! Wow, what a mustache and beard!!!

I've been to Oberammergau! Murals are beautiful. Nice little town.

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh, it is hard backing up a car in these little towns. The roads between the houses are VERY narrow.

Petals said...

Hey Jackie, Joe, Sue, Penny!

Jackie said...

Hey, all! I get a kick out of the waiting bearded guys filling themselves with beers. At least the task is different!

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, they are SO lucky. I LOVE Neuschwanstein! It is GORGEOUS. It was never finished inside, though.

Margo said...

hi everyone

SueGee said...

Hi Margo! Anyone going to tell us what is happening?

SueGee

SueGee said...

Do we need a drinking word tonight or is Rachael talking enough?

Jackie said...

SueGee - I have info in the main post. Right now Brenchel and Kentucky are making gingerbread houses for the fairy tale, the others have completed the beards. The Border Agents are still in first after finding the next clue at the castle which was the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty. Other teams are just arriving to the castle now.

Petals said...

Sue - LOL! Rachel is always enough reason for me to drink!

Jackie said...

And I'm not liking my blog pool team Ralph and Vanessa the more I see them. She's nasty and they bicker. Kentucky, on the other hand, are a hoot!

Petals said...

aww, I sure like the Kentucky team.

TeamBrenchel said...

Ralph has been married/divorced THREE times and Vanessa is dating him......why? @@

Nickelpeed said...

I like Bopper and Mark. LOL

SueGee said...

Thanks Jackie. There seems to be a huge lag in what I can see comments wise and on the main page

Nickelpeed said...

NO!!! This sucks! The WRONG castle!
:-(

Joe in NY said...

Why is she mad at him?

Joe in NY said...

That castle mix-up has to kill one of those two teams. They were on two different mountains. Has to take some time to undo that mistake.

Nickelpeed said...

These guys work so well together.

Nickelpeed said...

I like Bopper and Mark. I don't want them to be eliminated. :-(

Nickelpeed said...

Yipeeeeeeee!!! LOL

Nickelpeed said...

LMAO LOLOLOLOL

Joe in NY said...

That was too effing funny. Brendon jumps on the pit stop mat and lands on his backside!

Nickelpeed said...

yeah, Joe. Hope he got a pants full of cow manure! LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Petals, I saw that you asked if we all had a good St. Patrick's Day.

My husband and I went to his friend's pub. They had a grandmother and grandson team. He played the violin, while she played keyboards. This kid is 18 and he also plays the bagpipes. Wow. He was good. He was as thin as can be and I do not know how he could play the bagpipes! A lot of fun.

It can be called: Survivor New York.

Nickelpeed said...

Does anyone know who the person is hurt on Survivor? Or is it a recap show?

Jackie said...

Commercials -- apply to be on Big Brother and a shocking ending no one saw coming on Survivor.

Hmm ... maybe they kill Colton? Nah, not surprising enough!

Petals said...

Penny - I am unaware of a Survivor injury, but I can tell you: I sure know who I would LOVE to see hurt!

Nickelpeed said...

I'd like to see it be Colton, but I know it isn't. :-(

I've been trying to find out who it is, but I've found nothing! I'm wondering if it's a recap show? Or is it too early?

SueGee said...

Maybe someone trips on their big ego?

Nickelpeed said...

This is sad. :-(

SueGee said...

Will have to check out Survivorsucks to see if there are any spoilers.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, the other team was right, they'd get lost. Still sad to see them go.

Jackie said...

I doubt it's a recap show. But it does seem hush-hush on who gets hurt.

Nickelpeed said...

I looked at survivor sucks and didn't see anything. People are being tight lipped this season. I just do not want to wait. LOL
I'm a nosy person and want to know before hand! Heehee

Nickelpeed said...

The water thing looks fun.

Nickelpeed said...

See everyone Wednesday!!!

Jackie said...

I guess we'll find out Wednesday night, eh?

Thanks everyone for stopping by!

**Pool Update**

I thought that perhaps the Border Agents might get a penalty for riding in the horse carriage up the hill, but no. Wonder why no one else decided to ride. Alas I am out of the pool. :( BUT YEA HILLBILLIES!
I really think that Bopper & Mark are a fun team to watch.
