The Amazing Race 20 Blog Party - 04/08/12


Happy Easter all! Amazingly enough, the show is going to start late. Yes, that's sarcasm.  Tonight, it will be nearly an hour late. Sigh. 60 Minutes started at about 7:52pm EDT.

Since it's a holiday, I'm not expecting a huge crowd in comments tonight. However, the show looks like it's going to be pretty interesting -- Rachel gets accused of looking much older than she actually is. (Well, she does look older!) Perhaps tonight will be the end of Brenchel. I can only hope.

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll be updating this entry with the major events. Everyone is free to hang out in comments and share your thoughts!

8:51 PM and it's FINALLY starting. I'm so sick of these delays. CBS/TAR needs to get its act together and schedule the show for a different night or time.

The teams are heading to Africa.

Detour - Masai way of life -- Marksmenship or Courtship. Break a target with a native weapon or a jumping ritual.

No Roadblock. The teams have to set up their camp to specifications, then head to the Pit Stop.

Pit Stop --
1. Rachel and Dave - won trip to Costa Rica
2. Bopper and Mark, with accompanying bluegrass music
3. Art and JJ
4. Brendon and Rachel
5. Vanessa and Ralph
6. Nary and Jamie -- non-Philimination leg! They're still in it and even stopped to watch elephants because they knew they were last.

Hi, Jackie. I'll be lurking, as usual.

Joe in NY said...

hi Silk...and other lurkers

Nickelpeed said...

I'll be lurking, too. The Masters put us an hour behind. :-(

SueGee said...

Ah ha - time to eat dinner and then chat with all of you!! See you in a few!

SueGee

Becky said...

Hey Jackie, Silk,Joe, Penny, SueGee and whoever else is here.

Becky said...

So much for starting on time.

SueGee said...

Howdy Becky, Jackie and everyone!

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, she's mean!

Jackie said...

Oh gee. No one on the race seems to like Brenchel. Too bad, so sad.

SueGee said...

I would imagine they saw enough of her on BB x 2

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

I don't like Vanessa or Ralph, either.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, Rachel, please, just stop it!

Nickelpeed said...

Geesh, these guys are getting mean, too. Must be a full moon?

meb said...

Hi everybody... Rachel is ridiculous... if she really continues to cry I think I'll start... or drink... whichever comes first.

Nickelpeed said...

Oooooh, I want to go on an African Safari!!! I really do.

Nickelpeed said...

LOL - Tigers? In Africa? LOLOLOLOL

Becky said...

I guess enough time has gone by and we will begin to see the "real" people.

I think they make Rachael cry just because it gets to her so much.

Jackie said...

Herd of tigers - Kentucky! I believe they were wildebeests or something of that ilk.

Nickelpeed said...

She's so irritating, though. It's all drama with her. It has to be her all the time.

Nickelpeed said...

I would like to know the story behind the vibrant colors. Is it to do with status? Or tribe? There are some beautiful colors.

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh, this is so interesting and cool. I want to be there so badly!

Becky said...

Rachael is irritating. I would pick the jumping too.

Nickelpeed said...

Ancient? I had a bike like that when I was a kid!

Becky said...

My sign says Kiss the Easter Beagle.

Nickelpeed said...

Why would they pick the thowing? I would think the jumping would be easier for one minute.

SueGee said...

Thanks Becky - I was trying to figure that one out LOL

SueGee

Becky said...

Those boys from Kentucky are probably used to chunking (throwing)rocks.

Nickelpeed said...

I love your sign, Becky. I gave my Sarah a kiss today! LOL

Becky said...

Nasty personalities coming forth.

Joe in NY said...

Honestly, I'm sympathetic to Rachel. That woman is suuuuuch a byotch. How can her boyfriend stand it? She yells at him all the time. She must be double-jointed or something.

meb said...

The couple arguing with Brenchel aren't all that nice either. Ugly personalities come out in this race.

meb said...

Becky... great minds here.

Becky said...

Jackie and Joe, you are both quiet tonight.

Jackie, did the Easter bunny come to visit Vincent today?

meb said...

I'm agreeing with you Joe... Rachel is a pain in the arse, but the other girl is worse... she's just plain mean!

SueGee said...

Speaking of people that have gone way over their 10 minutes of fame - Been seeing ads for a series about house flipping staring Russell of Survivor Fame. TG we don't get that channel LOL!!

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

Ugh, takes me back to my military days in a combat communications unit. We had to do that. I hated it.

Becky said...

Dave should be good at the tent pitching.

Nickelpeed said...

Boy, they are even gracious, are they? Oh, come on Vanessa, it's not THAT hard!!!

Becky said...

It should be fun watching Rachael and Brendon.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, no. Please don't tell me Russell is doing that show? Yuk.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, Dave probably hasn't set up a tent like this since Survival training. He's probably clueless right now.

Becky said...

Guess Dave isn't as good as I thought he would be. And Rachael is much better.

Nickelpeed said...

Boy, this is anyone's game right now. They need to quit arguing. Not going good right now.

Becky said...

Nickle, I think you are right about Dave.

Jackie said...

Becky - I've been updating the main post, but feel a bit quiet. Maybe because the show is on so late, I don't know. No bunny visit, but a nice peaceful day. I hope you had a nice Easter!

Nickelpeed said...

Well, I hope they weren't eliminated. All that arguing.

Joe in NY said...

Sorry, I'm swamped with work. Been grading exams all weekend.

Nickelpeed said...

First ones done. Wow. Would have never thought.

SueGee said...

They only ones that never seem to bicker are the Kentucky Boys. Great example to their kids & families. I would be embarrassed to know or even be related to most of these bozos.

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

You know, they get a lot of air time, but I bet they do not win this game. Just a feeling.

Nickelpeed said...

I love these guys, Bopper and Mark

Becky said...

I love the music when Kentucky two are approaching Phil.

Nickelpeed said...

I feel bad about the girls. Would rather see Ralph and Vanessa go.

Becky said...

I like the girl's attitude. Good, they are still in the race.

Nickelpeed said...

:-)
Lucky

Nickelpeed said...

Well, I have to work Wednesday night, so will not be here.

Becky said...

See you guys next Thursday.

Becky said...

I meant Wednesday.

Becky said...

Thanks for hosting, Jackie. I really loved the pictures today.

Jackie said...

At least Survivor should start on time! I'll see you then ... thanks for coming by tonight!

meb said...

Glad it was a non-elimination...

Later...
