The Amazing Race: October 21 Blog Party


I'm not thrilled, but they're learning. The show isn't scheduled until 8:30 tonight here in the NYC viewing area due to football coverage. That's certainly better than pretending it will air at 8pm, but it still can throw my live TV watching askew with the odd half-hour. Oh well.

Although I'm putting this post up for the 8pm ET start, I probably won't really be here until the show starts. Feel free to hang out and have a beverage or two. Once it starts here, I'll update this entry with the major happenings as they air. But, as always, the party is in the comments. Come join us!

Okay then ... we're now talking about almost 9pm ET. Grr.

8:56 and it's finally on.

They're heading to Bangladesh. All the teams make the same flight.

Roadblock -- Teams have to repair buses. There is a fast forward available, but no one on the first few teams has gone for it ... yet.

The Fast Forward has them collecting dead rats. Ew. It looks like James and Abba are going to go for it.

The next clue is at a marketplace where they have to find a TAR flag colored dried fish in barrels of stinky dried fish. Ew.

The twins continue to be super annoying. Ew.

Detour -- Pound metal, pound out a spike. Pound the cotton has them beating cotton for a mattress.

James and Abba finished the rat collecting Fast Forward and are heading to the Pit Stop. They're the first team there and won a trip to Antigua.

2. Abbie and Ryan
3. Natalie and Nadiya
4. Rob and Kelly ... didn't take the right boat, must complete the course and come back.
4. Josh and Brent
5. Rob and Kelly
6. James and Jaymes
7. Trey and Lexi
8. Gary and Will ... Philiminated.

There goes my blog pool team, but no great loss. I'm liking so many teams much better! Well, I wouldn't shed any tears if the annoying twins vanished.

60 Minutes didn't start here until 7:58, which means no TAR until 8;58 @@ ridiculous. I wish they'd move TAR back to Tuesday.

Jackie said...

Grr

Nickelpeed said...

I agree. They need to change the day for our show! :-(

Becky said...

Hey Jackie, Anon, and Penny. Also to any who arrive after me.

Nickelpeed said...

Finally.

Hi everyone. Thanks for hosting Jackie.

Joe in NY said...

I don't care about TAR at 9. But that means EVERYTHING pushed back an hour. Mentalist until midnight?

Sharon S said...

hi everyone

Nickelpeed said...

I had to change my DVRing. It still shows up as Amazing Race as it goes in to the Good Wife. Messes everything up

Nickelpeed said...

Becky, how are you holding up?

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh. That would drive me nuts. It's dangerous crossing the roads! Wow.

Nickelpeed said...

How do they get anywhere???

SueGee said...

one of these days it will start so late you will be watching with me on Left Coast time!!!

Howdy to everyone!!

SueGee

Becky said...

Penny, I am a tough old bird. Good thing, been a lot of poop in my life lately. Thanks for asking.

For others, we had to put my Momma in a dementia unit. She fell again and broke her elbow. What little lucidity had after falling and breaking her arm in May is all but gone.

Jackie, in case I cut out early, thank you for hosting.

SueGee said...

I will be chatting while I watch Baseball on TV

SueGee

Sharon S said...

ewww - I don't think I can watch

Becky said...

YUK!!!!!

Sharon S said...

Becky, so sorry. Praying for strength for you.

Nickelpeed said...

LMAO. That was funny

Nickelpeed said...

My prayers are with you Becky. I can not image how hard this is you. Your brothers are poopheads.

SueGee said...

Becky sounds like you need some hugs..{{{{{{Becky}}}}}

SueGee

Joe in NY said...

So sorry to hear that Becky. Hope you and your Mom find peace.

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Trey...do it right!

Becky said...

Thank you, Sharon. LOL Penny. Can't comment. I was told my son to stop telling people what A-H they are.

Jackie said...

Aw, Becky ... so sorry to hear the latest. Hang in there!

Becky said...

Thank you, SueG and Joe. You guys don't know what a high light meeting here with you at Jackie's is for me. I come here, laugh and cut up and RELAX!

Now, where is Petals with the booze? Looks like my team is in trouble.

Becky said...

Thanks, Jackie. And thanks for furnishing a place for me to come.

Sharon S said...

those girls are sooooo annoying

Becky said...

FUNNY comment from the rockers about collecting the rats.

Those twins make me ill. Stick a sock in the big mouths mouth!

Nickelpeed said...

She never stops talking!!

Becky said...

Chippie 1 & 2 are in trouble! I really don't care!

Nickelpeed said...

That is disgusting!!!

Sharon said...

Of course, the "good" thing about the push-back for East coast folks... I finally get to watch the same time as y'all. :)

Becky said...

Looks like they finally finished.

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it, Trey is in trouble. Don't like that. :-(

Sharon S said...

What's the point of having them look for the fish?

Becky said...

Smart couple having backpacks on wheels.

Sharon S said...

yuck... I accidentally looked at the rats.

Becky said...

Go Trey and Lexie!

Nickelpeed said...

They have such bad luck, dang!

Becky said...

Darn! Get another cab!

Nickelpeed said...

Get another taxi!!!!!

Jackie said...

I know Petals said she was sick on FB.

Jackie said...

I did enjoy the blond shooting herself in the head behind the "twinnie" at the buses. It's not just us!

Becky said...

Hope Petals feels better soon.

Becky said...

DARN!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Did he just say drag queen? LMAO

Nickelpeed said...

Poor Petals. I hope she's better soon.

Come on Trey and Lexi!!!! I'm nervous for them.

Nickelpeed said...

Was it the wrong boat?

Sharon S said...

What did they forget to do? I was reading an email and missed it.

Nickelpeed said...

Yep, that's what I thought. Yikes.

Becky said...

Darn, I like them and now they have to go back and complete the course.

Jackie said...

They had to take the actual river boat, not a private one. They also misdirected the team following them.

Becky said...

I don't think I will make the Good Wife tonight. I am ready to crash.

Jackie said...

The river boat lands in a particular spot, then they must make their way on foot. The private boat brought them right there, skipping the "on foot" bit.

Becky said...

They also misdirected the team following them

I didn't think that was against the rules.

Jackie said...

Of course, they didn't mean to misdirect them. They had no clue they were doing it wrong themselves!

SueGee said...

The first rule of TAR - Read the clue! (and don't believe what the other team tells you LOL)

SueGee (who will get to watch it for herself in a hour)

Becky said...

Oh, no, not again.

Sharon S said...

Well, it bumped my pool team ahead a bit!

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it!!

Becky said...

Good, I like Rob and Kelly.

Nickelpeed said...

They're still wrong, though, I think. Not good or Trey and Lexi

Becky said...

Chippies are still in it.

Nickelpeed said...

Yes!!

I bet it's a non-elimination

Becky said...

Oh, I hate that they are going home. Other than the twinies I like all of them.

Nickelpeed said...

I feel bad for them

Sharon S said...

Becky, I agree with you. It's going to be hard watching a lot of them go.

Becky said...

See you guys Wed. Thanks, Jackie.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, thank you Jackie. It's greatly appreciated.

See all Survivor fans Wed and AR fans Sun!!!

Sharon S said...

g'night all

Thanks Jackie.

Hope everyone has a great start to the week!

Jackie said...

The twins MUST go next!
