The Amazing Race 20 Blog Party - April 29


Oh, wow. The show is going to start on time again here on the East Coast. Amazing! From the promos, it looks like this week will be full of Brenchel drama and Mark's health is failing him. I really don't want to see the latter. 

I'm one who always claims that folks who need the money "that bad" shouldn't bother with being on television competition shows. But I really enjoy watching Mark and Bopper! Their relationship is fantastic, they don't argue, and they really work at staying in. I only hope they can.

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major events. However, the real fun is in comments ... come join us!

There is a Fast Forward -- Brenchel is the first to try to go for it as Dave and Rachel can't. Ralph and Vanessa are also trying for it. It's the shaven head FF we saw a few years back. Cue Rachel drama.

The Roadblock has other teams making 40 feet of rope from husks. Rachel of Brenchel infamy, did NOT shave her head. She "needs hair to be pretty." @@

Detour - Pachy-derm or Pack-a-box. Decorate a live elephant or pack ginger for shipping.

Bopper and Mark JUST left the Pit Stop as others are approaching the Detour. Hopefully they will go for the not-yet-taken Fast Forward. They're at a Speed Bump, painting a tiger on the belly of a dancer.

YES! Kentucky is going to check out the Fast Forward!

1. Rachel and Dave - won ten grand each!
2. Brenchel
3. Vanessa and Ralph

Vanessa thinks that Brenchel cheated on the wheel barrow counts of elephant dung, now we have MEOW.

4. Sigh. Art and JJ.
5. Bopper and Mark ... Philiminated. Wah!

Nickelpeed said...

I'm heeeeerrrrreeee. Hi Jackie, Hi Becky.

*~*splash*~*

Hey Becky, Penny, Jackie & everyone!

GO KENTUCKY!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Too much face time, I do not think Rachel and Dave will win. And, I certainly would not want Brachel to win.

Nickelpeed said...

I agree, GO KENTUCKY!!!


Did he say it's affecting his sharpness - the boarder patrols think they are sharp? LOLOLOLOL

Petals said...

I think I must have missed what the border guys did to upset everyone. I thought they were cool when they shared a prize with Kentucky, then a coupla weeks later, they had become jerks.
Fill me in, someone...

Petals said...

(sorry, not a Ghandi fan)

Petals said...

well, we know that neither Rachel will do it.

Petals said...

the famous tearless cry

Nickelpeed said...

Wonder if she will do it. He'll talk her in to it. LOL

Jackie said...

I think the overall alpha male attitude has grown thin on me with the Border Patrol guys.

Petals said...

oh heck no, Penny! no way, no how. I dont think ANY female on this season will do the shave.

Becky said...

Wow! I leave for a minute and two show up. Hey Penny and Petals.
Jackie, I copied my post on your picture link.

"Waving back to Vincent.... I laughed at the misspelled sign. It reminded me of a time I went into a restaurant and looked at the board advertising the special for the day. Along with the meal you got a glass of tee. I pointed out that the word was misspelled. The girl looked at me like I had lost it. "Really, I never noticed" was her comment."

Becky said...

I would shave MY head for a million dollars.

Petals said...

Jackie, so is it just that? An ego thing? I thought maybe they had done something evil, but they are just being jerks? OK...I can see that.

Petals said...

But they could shave their heads and still not win.

Petals said...

I'd definitely do it, too - for a guaranteed prize. Heck, I'd do it for $100k

Becky said...

They know they would be in the final three.

Nickelpeed said...

I hope Kentucky takes the fast forward! This could be a great thing!!

Petals said...

Ditto Penny! You know they will!

Nickelpeed said...

I know I would shave my head for a million. I did not think Rachel would do it on her own, but I thought he would talk her in to it.

Nickelpeed said...

He can be such jerk sometimes. All she was doing was encouraging him.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh ouch! That hurt!

Jackie said...

I'd shave my head for $50,000. Heck, it would grow back!

Becky said...

I would shave my head for $10,000!

Petals said...

omg, I have a screw in one of my ankles, and am always afraid it will snap.

Petals said...

Hey - Joe would shave his head for $5! :)

Petals said...

hurryhurryhurryhurryhurry

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Mark and Bopper. I hope they can do it.

Petals said...

I would love the elephant task, even the manure part.

Nickelpeed said...

Have Mark and Bopper gotten to the fast forward, yet or do they have to do their detour first?

Becky said...

I hope Kentucky does the fast forward.

Petals said...

comeon!!!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Yeah, they got it!!!! And, you KNOW they WILL do this!


Whoohoo

Becky said...

Rachael is a Drama Queen, but Brendon is a PIA. IMHO

Nickelpeed said...

Oh my gosh! They will be the most hated people now.

Petals said...

this is grrrrring!

Joe in NY said...

hi folks

SueGee said...

Splash!! Better late than never! I knew I could not wait to find out if Rachael shaved her head ROFL

SueGee (hubby's birthday and I have been cooking up a storm)

Becky said...

Didn't they just break the rules by bribing the ferry dude?

Where is Joe tonight?

Becky said...

There you are!

Jackie said...

The FF Kentucky will probably take might not give them first as the others are so far ahead. But it may allow them to beat the last team -- Border Patrol.

Nickelpeed said...

Happy Birthday to your husband, Sue!

SueGee said...

They did their speed bump before the FF?

Nickelpeed said...

I hope this pays off for Kentucky.

SueGee said...

Thanks Penny - mine is next Sunday!! I bring something special to the party.

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

That is terrible. I think it's mean.

Joe in NY said...

they are not at all likeable, are they?

Nickelpeed said...

I think the speed bump is something they have to do. They can not avoid it, so picking up the fast forward wouldn't help them at that point.

Joe in NY said...

Frankly, Border Patrol could go home and I wouldn't miss them

Becky said...

Guess that answered my question about bribing being against the rules.

Wow! The Border patrol is getting nasty to each other.

Joe in NY said...

and that Vanessa...eek!

Petals said...

hey muffin!
I said you'd shave your head for 5 bucks, wouldnt you?

Becky said...

I hope Kentucky beats the Border Patrol.

Becky said...

Oh, crap!

Nickelpeed said...

Shoot!!!!!

Petals said...

oh no!

Petals said...

oh NO!!!!Does this mean KY is gone?

Nickelpeed said...

Man that just sucks.

Petals said...

Heartbreaking! I hope they go on Big Brother!

Becky said...

I just wish they had an America's Favorite team.

Nickelpeed said...

They have been two of the most likable guys ever. Just all around good guys. :-(

Petals said...

ciao guys. Saddened by KY being gone, I now must go watch more trash: Celebrity Apprentice, LOL

SueGee said...

When is the final episode? I know Survivor is in two weeks on 5/13

SueGee

Jackie said...

Wah!

Nickelpeed said...

I will not be here Wednesday. I have to work, so will miss the Survivor talk. Dang.

Joe in NY said...

Petals, I shave my head every day. LOL

Jackie said...

I think the finale is next week.

Nickelpeed said...

Now I need to figure out who should win this game. The last four are not great teams. None give me a good choice. It's the best of 4 evils. I'll root for Rachel and Dave, I guess.

Petals said...

Happy birthday, Mr Gee!

Petals said...

duh Joe, I know you do! *wink*

Nickelpeed said...

Holy cow. Yikes. That is going to be good!!!!!

Becky said...

Be back Thursday.

ClassicJo said...

Go Brenchel. Rachel can be a cry baby but if you watched live feeds of big brother you can see she is a better person then what they made her on tv. Vanessa has no reason to hate her and started the whole drama thing by being mean to her so of course ur going to be hurt and say things back. If they don't win I want the other rachel team to win the other two other teams are just too mean! oh and I guess brenchel didn't count wrong or there would of been the penalty this leg and would of had the kentucky team still be in it? Because they would of had a time penalty? I wanted Kentucky to win more then anyone which of course they are out of it
