The Amazing Race 20 Blog Party - 04/15/12


Hopefully (I wasn't watching CBS), the show is about to start here on the East Coast. As it airs, I'll update this post with major events -- tonight has a double U-Turn and more! But the real fun is in the comments area! Everyone is free to jump in with your comments on the happenings!

Detour -- Water supply or air supply. The first has them going to a well, then delivering water. Air supply has them patching leaks on bike tires.

Bopper and Mark are in the lead and didn't U-Turn anyone, nor did Dave and Rachel.

The Border Patrol U-Turned Rachel and Brendon. They thought they were first to the U-Turn as Dave and Rachel had promised to U-Turn Brenchel. But they weren't.

Brenchel U-Turned Vanessa and Ralph. No surprise there!

The Roadblock has them collecting honey in protective bee suits. Fun, fun, fun!

Border Patrol has cut their ties with Rachel and Dave over the U-Turn promise. Bopper and Mark are having trouble with Mark's knee heading to the Pit Stop. But they make it FIRST ... yes! Rachel and Dave are second. Bopper and Mark won a trip to Hawaii.

3. Art and JJ
4. Brendon and Rachel
5. Vanessa and Ralph
6. Nary and Jamie just couldn't catch up. They were Philiminated.

Hey Jackie & everyone.
I'm going to quietly paddle around on my leopard floatie, sipping my Silver Bullet.

Hi Petals & Jackie!!

SueGee sipping

Petals said...

So both Rachel's are jerks??

Petals said...

I like the Border guys & Kentucky.

SueGee said...

I'll drink to that!!

SueGee said...

It is really hard for 2-girl teams to win this game.

Delee said...

How many decades will it take for Brendan to get his PhD, has been years so far!

Petals said...

I would love seeing all those animals...

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, SueG and Petals. Jackie, thank you for hosting us again.

Becky said...

Rachel has a mean mouth. And mean eyes.

Petals said...

Hey Becky & SueG!

Petals said...

Just seeing how arid it is there, and knowing how much water I waste daily - I feel kinda guilty. We really have it good over here.

Delee said...

I had to repair my bike tires on the farm. Not hard to do!

SueGee said...

Hi Delee & Becky

Didn't they used to say something about Rachael being a scientist too? Now they just call her a hostess LOL

SueGee

Becky said...

Hey, DeLee.

Becky said...

I Like Kentucky's and the Border Patrol.

Becky said...

I am supporting Dave and Rachael because he is in the service.

Jackie said...

I'm liking Mark and Bopper more each show. They're very likable. Usually the "country bumpkin" teams on the show are very inept. These two seem to naturally take to stuff. They're fun to watch!

Nickelpeed said...

Splash!!!!!

SueGee said...

Love those guys!!

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

I like Mark and Bopper, too. I also like Rachel and Dave, only because he's Air Force.

Becky said...

Hey Nickel.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky, how are your girls?

Dang it, I think it's terrible to U-Turn people, especially that far ahead. :-(

Penny

~~Silk said...

Lurking....

Petals said...

Hey Penny.

(I think Joe is lofting...If you are, hey Muffin!)

Janice Sawicki said...

I want to see Rachael and Brendon LOSE!!!

Becky said...

Silk, come out and join the party.

Petals said...

Hey Silk.


My ex bought a beesuit like that, so he could re-locate a nest from under our deck. I wouldnt let him use Raid or whatever. And it worked - he moved the whole big nest to a tree in the woods.

Nickelpeed said...

I wish these two would shut up. I do not like them...the boarder patrol guys.

Becky said...

Oh, it's going to be tear time.

Nickelpeed said...

Miss Drama Queen.

Delee said...

Those suits protect you some, but what if you are highly allergic to bee stings. Matthew worked with bees in college as his job. He is allergic but would still get biten thru his suit!

Petals said...

Penny, you dont like Border guys?

Becky said...

Petals, I know what you mean by seeing the water line making you feel guilty. I think of how many times I turn on the water and let it run.

Joe in NY said...

Most Ph.D. programs in the sciences take 5 years full-time. Given his occasional breaks it will definitely take him longr.

Petals said...

Whohoooo, KY in 1st place!

Petals said...

(I knew I smelled warm, sweet Muffin)

Becky, right? I totally take my water for granted.

Becky said...

Dave gets on my last nerve. So the Border Patrol. It makes it hard to pull for them to win.

Petals said...

YAY!!! Bad knee & all! WTG KY!

Joe in NY said...

lol. Hi, Petals. Just got home and got the dogs situated

Delee said...

I do not like Art or JJ, they rub me the wrong way! KY boys are my pool peeps!

Nickelpeed said...

I am so glad they won 1st.

Becky said...

Hey, Joe.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't like Art of JJ either. The two women were so far behind, why in the world detour them? They are jerks

Petals said...

wow!!

~~Silk said...

When the first place team wins a "trip for two", what if each member of the team has a spouse? I wonder how that works.

Petals said...

I dont care for the description, "Dating Divorcees". Not sure why, it just tweaks a nerve. Like, when I date, do people say, "Hey, she's a dating divorcee"?

Becky said...

Okay, Dave, Rachel, and Border Patrol are off my favorite list and down to the fecal roster.

D & R because they made a promise they did not keep and the BP because they are jerks with their attitude.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh geeze. Yikes. Well, I do not like those two, anyway. LOL

Jackie said...

Silk - If memory serves, they EACH win a trip for two. I'm so happy they got their first place finish.

Nickelpeed said...

Yeah, but I agree with D & R because the girls are so far behind, they wouldn't pass either team. I do not dislike them for that. I do not like the thought of using the Detour anyway. The Boarder Control guys are nasty, nasty people.

Jackie said...

Welcome aboard the blog party, Janice! Folks ... Janice and I grew up together in a small town in upstate NY!

Anonymous said...

Wow, congrats Art & J J, you two are assholes!

Nickelpeed said...

Welcome Janice!

I grew up in the Adirondacks of New York in a small town just North of Lake George. I miss home a lot.

Petals said...

Hey Janice!

I guess I need to pay closer attention, because I dont see the BP being so bad.

Delee said...

St Louis under tornado watch until 12 cdt! Be safe out there!

Jackie said...

Penny - Our small town was in Saratoga County, Round Lake. I lived there from 5th grade through high school graduation. Janice and I rode the bus together!

Petals said...

OMGosh Delee - I had to listen to sirens all night. Never lost power tho, whew. I'm in KCMO area.

Delee said...

Margo is in St Louis!

Nickelpeed said...

See you all Wednesday!!!!

Jackie said...

Thank you all for coming by!

Petals said...

Yeah, Margo is in STL. Yeeks...

Petals said...

Yeah, Margo is in STL. Yeeks...

Nickelpeed said...

I know where Round Lake is! I grew up in Warrensburg. So many people do not realize how many small towns there are in NY

Jackie said...

Around here they think upstate NY is Yonkers!

I hope Margo is safe from the storms in St. Louis!

monty924 said...

I was so happy to see Mark and Bopper come in first last night. I find them extremely likable too!

My Sunday night obligations ended last night... yay! I'll be able to watch now with all you fine folks from here on out. :)

See everyone on Wednesday for the other, more boring, CBS reality show. ;)
