The Amazing Race 20 Blog Party - April 22


It's truly AMAZING! What is? Well, The Amazing Race is actually going to start on time here on the East Coast! I don't know if my heart can take it. While my blog pool random pick team is Ralph and Vanessa, I don't like them all that much. I don't care for Rachel, yet if I were on the race with her I wouldn't get all personally insulting to her. I'd just avoid her a lot or have little to say to her. Vanessa definitely has a mean streak in her and I don't like people who bully others even if the others are Brenchel.

The team I'd like best to win and enjoy watching the most is Kentucky -- Mark and Bopper. While they're surely backwoods, they're fun to watch. They get along well together and are doing much better stats-wise than I thought they would. I guess they don't really have much of a chance of winning with such alpha teams all around them. But it would be cool.

As the show airs here, I'll update this entry with major events. But the real fun is in the comments area. Come party with us as you watch the show!

The teams are heading to India. They encounter a Roadblock which has them learning a Bollywood dance routine.

Rachel and Dave are first to the Detour -- Cricket (the game) or Clutch It (rickshaw driving).

Pit Stop --
1. Rachel and Dave -- won a trip to St. Lucia.
2. Brendon and Rachel 

Sigh. Mark and Bopper seem to be goners. Mark tried and tried the Bollywood routine and finally gave up when Mark was almost at the point of collapsing.

3. Art and JJ
4. Vanessa and Ralph

All the teams have made it to the Pit Stop and Mark is giving the dance one more time so he won't be a quitter (for his children). He makes it through. They finally make it to the Pit Stop -- NON-PHILIMINATION!!! Woohoo! They're still in the race!

Hi Jackie and blog pals.
I finally get to actually post during TAR!
I am going to be in and out but I wanted to drop off some snacks for tonight pool party.
I have fresh hot boiled Crawfish, spicy boiled new patatoes and corn on the cob.
I have a case of corona and a case of diet coke to wash it down.

monty924 said...

lynn, the boiled crab is delish. Thanks!

Becky said...

It's looking bad for the good old boys.

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Kentucky get there. I didn't see, why are they behind?

Penny

Jackie said...

Penny - They had trouble finding the bus and missed the first two.

lynn1 said...

It is looking bad fo the KY guys. Hope something happens to give them a break.

monty924 said...

Leave it to family... my first night to watch the show at home and company shows up. Will try to catch up with all soon.

Nickelpeed said...

Take care, Monty.

I hope Kentucky doesn't fall too far behind. :-(

Penny

Becky said...

Rachel thought she would ace the dance. He,he,he!

Becky said...

Oh, rats, Monty. Hope to see you again soon.

Petals said...

noooo....please let Kentucky not lose.

Petals said...

countdown to tears

monty924 said...

I'm back... now what did I miss?

monty924 said...

Rachel's crying and I'm DRINKING!!

Petals said...

that didnt take long..the non cry.

monty924 said...

Vanessa and Ralph are my team but don't like them!

Petals said...

is this a Philimation round?

SueGee said...

Splash better late than never. I've been BBQing chicken help yourselves

Looks like our boys are in trouble go Kentucky!!

SueGee

monty924 said...

Wouldn't it be funny if Kentucky beat Art and JJ to the mat? Oh, I would love it... don't think it will happen but would LOVE it. :)

Petals said...

I have scalloped potatoes and some spinach...

Jackie said...

With all the promos saying how Kentucky was in trouble, I can only hope they were misleading us. I don't want to see them leave even if the odds are against them!

Petals said...

they (KY) have such good spirit. Please dont let them get eliminated.

Becky said...

I hope this is a non-elim round.

monty924 said...

I hope for a non-philimination, but has there ever been two for one team? Not looking good for my KY boys. :(

Becky said...

Vanessa talking about all the things she hit was hysterical. I sure wouldn't want to ride with her driving.

Nickelpeed said...

Shoot, I thought that was close enough. Poor Mark.

Penny

Nickelpeed said...

Even though these two have won many first places, I don't think they'll win the game.

Penny

monty924 said...

I feel so bad for Mark and Bopper. I love the way they support each other.

And loved the way the other Rachel just put it out there.... if not we'll just beat'em. Of all the teams left, I'll be happy if anyone but Art and JJ wins.

Nickelpeed said...

This is sad. I hope Mark is okay.
:-(

Joe in NY said...

not for nothing, but I've seen "judges" pass dancers for much worse performances

monty924 said...

Yahooo, yippy and all that!!!

lynn1 said...

Rachel beat Art ! ha ha ha ha

Nickelpeed said...

Makes me so sad. I feel so horrible for them.

Makes me really, really sad. Such good friends. God Bless them.

Penny

monty924 said...

Listen to him... nothing to be ashamed of.

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it. :-(

monty924 said...

Wasn't that great lynn1? I loved it :)

Becky said...

What a shame. I really liked them a lot.

lynn1 said...

I really feel badly for the KY team. I agree with Joe I have seen worse dancers in other seasons who got a pass.

monty924 said...

It is a shame and I'll miss them. I can't remember a team that I enjoyed rooting for more. Sad!

Becky said...

At least they have a wonderful friendship. They are both winners in my book.

I wish they had an American Favorite vote this year.

Nickelpeed said...

I just think he did well enough to pass. Disappointed they didn't let them get the clue. Others have done worse.

Nickelpeed said...

See, he wasn't perfect then, either, They could have given it to them earlier.

monty924 said...

So happy to see them cross the mat. They never gave up!!!

Becky said...

YAHOO!!@!!

Nickelpeed said...

OMG!!! Damn CBS

Woohooo LOL

lynn1 said...

Yes !!!!

monty924 said...

Holy shit!!!! oops, sorry Jackie

Joe in NY said...

hmmmm...makes you wonder about manipulation, doesn't it?

Subjective judging makes them last but they get a save. Hmmmm... ;)

lynn1 said...

I feel like I have just finished a race!

Becky said...

I agree that it did just as good as the Art.

See you guys Thurs. I promised DH the computer at 8. Thanks again, Jackie.

monty924 said...

Wow, wow, wow. Do you think CBS knew what kind of gold they had in these two? I'm just happy they're still in it. Off to watch Celebrity Apprentice and see what kind of meltdown Lisa will have this week.

See all of you fine folks on Wednesday. :)

Nickelpeed said...

See you all Wednesday.

Jackie said...

Thanks everybody for coming by!
