The Amazing Race 20 Season Finale Blog Party


Welp, this is it. It's the season finale. And, much to my dismay, Brendon and Rachel are still in it. Sigh. Tonight is a two-hour show ... I wouldn't mind it if the last hour didn't include them! I know. I'm a cruel person. But I'm SO tired of seeing their drama! If I had to cheer on a remaining team, I think I'd go for the Other Rachel and Dave.

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major events. However, the real fun is in the comments area. Come join us! (And bring snacks!)

The teams are headed off to Japan. The teams will bunch up on the same flight. Brenchel missed the bus which the rest of the teams caught. Too bad, so sad. Sigh. They caught up. Now it's Dave and Rachel behind by missing the ferry.

Heh. The Roadblock is a Japanese TV game show!

The Detour has sushi and sumo premises. Sushi bingo, then eat. Or, with the latter, convince locals to pose for photographs with sumo wrestler cut-outs.

Rachel and Dave hit the Pit Stop first, tying the record for the most first place wins. They won a trip to New Zealand.
2. Art and JJ
3. Brenchel

Vanessa and Ralph are Philiminated

Teams are heading to Hawaii. After rappelling up and down a 45 story tower, the Roadblock has them shaving ice. JJ and Art are trailing.

Whoa! Brenchel took a cab when the clue said to go on foot!

Rachel and Dave arrived at the Pit Stop before completing the Roadblock! Eek! JJ and Art are at the Roadblock while Brenchel has yet to reach it. Art is stuck at the Roadblock, Rachel and Dave are on their way back to the Pit Stop.

RACHEL AND DAVE WIN THE AMAZING RACE!

Art and JJ make it second. Brenchel is third.

Hey Jackie and all. I made it finally for the entire TAR party. Whew!

I brought the sangria again and looking forward to the show.

monty924 said...

The Talk gave them $10,000 this week. That was nice to see!

monty924 said...

Vanessa and Ralph are my peeps in the pool, but I refuse to like them or root for them, lol

monty924 said...

Hey, I'm talking to myself here... well, Jackie and myself.

lynn1 said...

Hi Jackie & Everyone,
I saw Mark & Bopper on TV this week. Mark found out he lost his job when he returned from TAR.
I have Chicken enchildas vedre, refried beans and rice leftover from Cinco de Mayo. They always taste better the second day to me.

Jackie said...

I also have Vanessa and Ralph in the pool. She's really mean. I can't really get behind them for the win.

Nickelpeed said...

~~~Splash~~~

Hard type well. My up is laying on my lap. I don't usually peck with 2 fingers. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

They gave Kentucky money? How nice!

monty924 said...

Hi lynn1 and Penny. Lynn, your food sounds yummy even if leftovers.

Nickelpeed said...

ooops, my pup is on my lap

lynn1 said...

I have Brendon & Rachel in the pool. I am not a big fan but I will root for them simply because even with rachel's drama they have been very competitve and tried hard to win.
Regardless if they win or lose I hope they will crawl back into the shadows forever and a day.

Nickelpeed said...

Mark lost his job? How sad. Hopefully,someone will hire him.

Hi Everyone!!

Nickelpeed said...

Who we rooting for to win?

lynn1 said...

monty,
The enchildas I make are too darn good. I need to quit making them.

Nickelpeed said...

I wonder what team missed part of their clue and has to go back at the end? Anyone have spoilers?

monty924 said...

I like that Rachel and Brendon beat Art and JJ to the jump. Have I said that I don't like them either? lol

Nickelpeed said...

I'll scream if Brachel wins.

They are showing too much of Dave and Rachel. I do not think they will win. But of all of them, I'd rather have them then anyone else.

monty924 said...

I'm rooting for the two Rachel teams. Either one I'll be happy with. If it's Brendon and Rachel, I agree with lynn1. They need to just go away after this.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, there's no way they can catch up now.

monty924 said...

I think they can catch up. It depends on the tasks.

Nickelpeed said...

Well,if Brachel wins, she'll just spend the money on $500 hair extensions. LOL However, I like them better than Art and JJ and Vanessa and Ralph. I think Rachel and Dave cannot catch up now. Hope I'm wrong.

monty924 said...

Conan and Kardashian... that was sort of funny if it hadn't come from the bullies.

Laurie said...

Hi everyone!
I've missed the whole season due to my promise to myself never to watch Rachel again. Oh well. Next season I'll be back.
I did want to say hi to everyone and wish you all a good week. It's only 5:30 here, but I'm starving. I'll dip into some of your goodies if you don't mind!

Nickelpeed said...

LOLOLOLOL Too funny

monty924 said...

This is somber.

monty924 said...

Hey Laurie! Can't wait to see you during BB season. Oh Yeah! It will be here before we know it. :)

Nickelpeed said...

How long has he been in college? He seems to be a perpetual, long term student....

Nickelpeed said...

LOL I LOVE Japanese game shows. LOL

monty924 said...

Omg, can you just imagine Rachel doing this? Funny stuff!

monty924 said...

That wasn't hard. Anyone else think that the challenges this season have been pretty lame?

monty924 said...

Hilarious!

monty924 said...

Okay, I'm getting my Vanessa and Ralph dislike out big time on this challenge. Sorry, but LOL

Nickelpeed said...

LMAO. This is tooo funny. I LOVE it.

Nickelpeed said...

O.o

I would have thought she was more athletic than that!?

monty924 said...

Me too!

monty924 said...

Ewww, I hate sushi!

Joe in NY said...

hi folks

monty924 said...

Well, she made it but I suppose Karma got her this task.

monty924 said...

Hi Joe

Joe in NY said...

these people are all pretty yucky...suddenly Brenchel look like the best of a bad bunch.

monty924 said...

They are probably the strongest team left in this and they can't get passed the fighting. Sigh!

Joe in NY said...

Hi Monty.

Technically, chicken McNuggets are "sushi". I believe it just means "small bites" in Japanese.

monty924 said...

Ut oh, the BINGO doesn't look so easy now.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow. Okay. Chill out.

monty924 said...

Well, I don't eat chicken McNuggets either. lol

monty924 said...

Something about the processing of it all grosses me out, ICK!!

Nickelpeed said...

You know, though, it has to be stressful. No me time or anything. 24/7 has to be VERY hard sometimes and very stressful.

monty924 said...

Of course Art and JJ did it. Darnit!

monty924 said...

Rachel is close to tears so I'm DRINKING! Down the hatch

monty924 said...

One of my Rachel teams has made it. Yes!

monty924 said...

Come on Brenchal

monty924 said...

YES!!!

monty924 said...

Well, Jackie our peeps are out of it. If she had been easier to root for, I wouldn't be happy to see them eliminated.

SueGee said...

~~SPLASH~~~

Sorry I'm so late but I sneaked a look during dinner...

I brought some birthday cake and ice cream so grab some before it all melts!

SueGee on the Left Coast

lynn1 said...

I won't miss Vanessa the mean girl.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, I hope Art and JJ get booted. However, Brachel are not underdogs, even though they say they are.

Nickelpeed said...

Too much face time...I'm wondering if Rachel and Dave are the team who does something wrong and has to go back to redo it? Like in the previews. Well, it just might be Brachel who wins this.

monty924 said...

You might be onto to something. It would be a shame to get that many firsts and then mess up on the final leg.

monty924 said...

That would freak me out too. I'm terrified of heights.

Nickelpeed said...

That's a hard one. You would need great upper body strength to do it. That's high up!!!!

Jackie said...

Mark and Bopper would never have been able to do this one. Nor would I. I could go down, but would probably have a heart attack going up!

Nickelpeed said...

Is that the guy from Hawaii 5O

monty924 said...

I hear you Jackie. Same here!

Well, there's a big OOPS!

Jackie said...

ON FOOT nails someone each season!

lynn1 said...

Too bad for brandon & rachel

monty924 said...

Yep! Always, always, always read the CLUE. The difference between winning and losing.

monty924 said...

Geesh! Okay, I'm not rooting for Brenchal now, lol.

Nickelpeed said...

OMG! Who's next?

That's what I thought. Too much face time..

monty924 said...

Oh my! I thought I missed something and now I realize Rachel and Dave did, lol

monty924 said...

Art and JJ (UGH) are in 2nd place. I just don't like them.

Ugggggggggh, I so don't want Art & JJ to win! Dislike. ALOT.

Nickelpeed said...

I won't be happy if JJ and Art to win.

Nickelpeed said...

Keep on messing it up guys. Just mess it up.

Nickelpeed said...

OH YEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH

monty924 said...

Yes, now get those balls in there Rachel!

monty924 said...

This isn't a challenge built for a burly guy.

Nickelpeed said...

OMG! Does the ATV break down?

monty924 said...

Rachel's boobs will probaly be their demise.

monty924 said...

YAY!!! They beat Art and JJ for now. I love it!!

Nickelpeed said...

That was good. Man she looks so beat up. Poor girl. O.o Did I say that?

Nickelpeed said...

That is unbelievable. They had to go back and they still won. WOW

Nickelpeed said...

Monty - you are funny. I was going to say the same thing as you about Rachel's boobs. LOL

monty924 said...

ACK!

lynn1 said...

congrats to Rachel & Dave they deserved to win

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, who picked Dave and Rachel?

monty924 said...

I'm surprised she did it as fast as she did. :)

lynn1 said...

Monty I said the say thing about rachel when she was on the sled.

Anonymous said...

3rd place in The Amazing Race isn't too shabby. Congrats to Dave and Rachel on their win.

Nickelpeed said...

Will see everyone Wednesday. I'm glad I do not have to work!!

Jackie said...

Penny - For the blog pool? Offhand, I don't remember. Margo was the pool guard and I know today's her birthday. So she's probably going to be late posting the results.

monty924 said...
