The Amazing Race: October 7 Episode Blog Party


Although I'm getting this post up by 8pm ET, the show isn't scheduled to start here until 8:30pm. Grr.

Once it does start, as it airs I'll be updating this post with the major happenings. However, the real fun is in the comments section. I hope to see you there!

The teams are off to Indonesia! The winner of this leg will receive an Express Pass which allows them to skip a challenge. Once there, they bunch up for 8am bull races. The monster trucker couple took a different flight to get to Indonesia and it backfired on them. All the other teams are awaiting a night before the bull races while they're still in flight.

The bull race actually has the teams on mopeds racing the bulls.

Roadblock: Who likes to party? Operating a bicycle with a party for four children aboard and making balloon animals.

Detour -- Ice by the pound, delivering ice or fish by the barrel, stock and set up a fish stall in the market.

Natalie and Nadiya won first place and the Express Pass.
2. Lexi and Trey
3. Jaymes and James
4. Abbie and Ryan
5. Josh and Trent
6. James and Abba
7. Kaitlin and Britany
8. Rob and Kelly
9. Gary and Will
10. Amy and Daniel -- PHILIMINATED. 

Sigh.

Well Jackie.. I'm here on time and at the same time too early, but then I'm really late... it's 8:10... Sigh...

I'll see you soon, I hope.

Jackie said...

Oh, I'm around. The show isn't scheduled for about ten minutes yet.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi every one!!!!

Penny

Joe in NY said...

Jackie said...

At least they TOLD us the later time tonight ... much better than hoping it would start at 8!

lynn1 said...

HI Jackie and all you pool people

meb said...

OK.. ready to get started. Hi Joe, Jackie, Penny and Lynn1 and everybody else who comes on next.

Nickelpeed said...

LOL. I read the #amazingrace as amazin grace. Duh.

SueGee said...

Wow - late but incredibly on time!

Howdy everyone!!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

SueGee said...

Anyone want some Sunday Dinner before I go put it away? Roast Beef, mashed taters and steamed carrots! (so traditional but I love meals you throw in the oven and pull out done)

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Nickelpeed said...

Well, that sucks for them.

lynn1 said...

Monster truck couple are in trouble I think

Nickelpeed said...

Roast beef? I LOVE roast beef!

lynn1 said...

SueGee your avatar is cute!

meb said...

Me, me, me Sugee! Love the traditional meal!

Pop is gonna get left behind if he decides to play his own game too much, but this one will probably be ok since they'll probably be there in time to meet up with everyone else at 8:30 a.m.

Jackie said...

Sounds good, Sue. It's been raw and chilly here all day, perfect for roast beef, carrots and potatoes!

SueGee said...

I had to have some fluid drained and shots in my knee so I am hobbling around on one crutch for a while. My DH cannot cook so I let him clean up'

SueGee on the LeftCoast

SueGee said...

Plenty for everyone and for me - lunch tommorrow!

Sharon S said...

Hi all -- trying to grade some papers, so splitting my attention tonight.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm still rooting for Amy and Daniel and Lexi and Trey.

Nickelpeed said...

Sue, my avatar is of my sweet doxie, Trey, short for Atreyu from the Never Ending Story

Nickelpeed said...

SueGee, left coast, I sympathize with you on your knee. I hated my shots. It never failed I'd get a PA who would just jab it in, shoot it out and it was so painful! Am so glad I got my knee replacement. Ugh on hobbling around. :-(

Hope you feel better soon

Jackie said...

Oh my. It doesn't look good for my blog pick team -- Gary and Will.

lynn1 said...

SueGee hope your knee will feel better soon.

meb said...

Was that our guy who couldn't tie the balloon...

Does Papa's mama talk? At least they're not in last place now.

The twins are annoying.

The remainder seem to be doing pretty good so far. No bickering.

Jackie said...

Unfortunately, I know all too well about knees being drained and shots in them. The replacements were rough to go through, but they solved those issues!

Jackie said...

Something creeps me out about twins calling each other "Twinnie."

meb said...

Ooops. she talks.. and she swears too. LOL

meb said...

Can you believe the twins are in first place so far.

lynn1 said...

Those fingernails are gross

SueGee said...

This is my first round of problems with my knees. If one more person tells me they look pretty good for someone my age I'm going to slap them!

SueGee

monty924 said...

Really late and have no idea what has happened.

SPLASH

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it all!!! I do not want to see them eliminated :-(

meb said...

OMG... Josh and Brent are 5th!

SueGee said...

Hey Monte!

We had roast beef and gravy tonight and I think there is enough left for a sandwich!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

meb said...

Where's Petals, and Monty?

monty924 said...

SueGee, the roast beef sounds delish. I love Sunday dinners.

monty924 said...

Hey Meb, not sure about Petals. Don't know if she's a TAR fan.

Joe in NY said...

I need about half of these teams to be gone so I can try and care about the other half. LOL

~~Silk said...

Wijaya? Try police? Post office? Hotel? Internet cafe? Not just people on the street....

lynn1 said...

Joe I agree when we the teams are down to 5 or 6 it will be more interesting

SueGee said...

Now I'm humming that Moody Blues song about Sunday dinner.....

SueGee (who has to wait another 90 minutes to watch the show)

Sharon S said...

Joe, I'm right there with you!

SueGee said...

See you all on Wednesday night!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Nickelpeed said...

I don't want to watch. I don't want to see Amy and Daniel eliminated. :-(

Jackie said...

Phil did say eliminated "next." I know it's early, but I hope it's a non-elim.

Nickelpeed said...

I am sad.

Nickelpeed said...

Whaaaaaaaa. I am very unhappy.

monty924 said...

Aww, sad for them. I was pulling for them.

Nickelpeed said...

This does not make me happy at all. Very disappointed. I want to cry.

lynn1 said...

That is too bad. I liked Amy a lot

Sharon S said...

I liked that couple. :(

meb said...

So Sorry to see them leave the race. They had a place if their cab hadn't gotten lost longer than the others.

Nickelpeed said...

I wish I could kick their cab driver in the butt. Darn it, darn it. I think this has been the most disappointed I've been in the race in a long time.

monty924 said...

Well, better late than never. I'll see all of you fine folks on Wednesday. Gotta go watch my REDS now.

GO REDS

Jackie said...

Sigh. But I do think that that couple is going to do well in life. They have a lot more on the ball than many.

lynn1 said...

Thanks JACKIE.
See you on Wed.
Nite eeryone

Nickelpeed said...

Well, this almost makes me not want to watch more, but I have to root for Lexi and Trey. Just disappointed.

Thank you Jackie. Appreciate you doing this.
Well see a lot of you Wednesday and everyone else next Sunday!

Have a good week!!!

Jackie said...

Thanks for stopping by, everyone!

meb said...

Monty... didn't see you come in...That was a fast hour.

I just remembered to go record the news or all my shows being recorded tonight wouldn't ... and Metalist is the last one on this channel and CBS doesn't give us On Demand.

OK .. it's been fun... See you all on Wednesday !

They didn't go because of a stupid taxi driver. They are gone because TAR producers decided to use such a blatant bunching point. That bunching point didn't have the teams do anything, just ride on the back of a motorbike driven by someone else for a minute.

Without a bunching point, monster truck is gone because they were on a flight hours behind everyone else.
