The Amazing Race: November 25 Episode Blog Party


Sure, the show is starting on time here on the East Coast. Of course, with so many folks on the road returning home from a long Thanksgiving weekend, the viewership is bound to be down a bit. But will that stop us from our blog party? No way!

As the show airs here, I'll update this entry with the major events. However, as always, the real fun will be in the comments area. Come join the party!

Getting only a flag as the next clue, they need to figure out that it's the Netherlands where they need to go. James and Jaymes looked up the flag on the Internet. Trey and Lexi thought it was France. Thankfully, they're in with the Chippendales who steered them right.

Grr. The twinnies found the Fast Forward clue first. The Chippendales aren't that far behind them, but Abbie and Ryan got hung up in Frankfurt missing their connecting flight.

The twins have to eat raw fish on a bus which will go underwater. They finished the task and are heading to the Pit Stop just as the Chippendales arrive at the FF. Of course, the twins win the leg. They also won $5,000 cash each.

The Detour - Back in Time - recreate a Rembrant masterpiece. Organ to Grind - operate huge organ and collect 30 Euro in tips. U-Turn ahead.

James and Jaymes don't want to do anything at the Double U-Turn. But, in the end, they U-Turned Ryan and Abbie. Sigh.

The Roadblock has them pole vaulting over a water-filled ditch. Ho-hum.
James and Jaymes made it second.

As per their previous plan, Trey and Lexi U-Turned the Chippendales, knowing they already were through. That keeps Abbie and Ryan from U-Turning the goat farmers. Those last two teams are traveling together. I sense a break up ahead.

Trey and Lexi are third to the Pit Stop.

Uh-oh. The last two teams just hit the U-Turn. Eep.

Josh and Brent are in 4th place.

Abbie and Ryan came in last, Philiminated. There goes the big two million. They're quite bitter about the Chippendales.

Jackie said...

Hi! And, thank you!

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and Penny! Also hey to anyone else who arrives.

Becky said...

Those pictures were wonderful. Have you ever thought of publishing a book of photos?

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky - How are you?

Jackie said...

Becky - My brother wants me to do a book, too. Maybe someday.

Becky said...

I'm hanging in there. Momma is really not well mentally. Thank you for asking.

Jackie, I am so glad you have invited us to your home. This is one of my favorite nights.

Becky said...

Jackie, you should.

Nickelpeed said...

That's kind of sad.

Becky said...

Wish that had been the twins team. Sorry, whoever has their name.

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, that would be very cool - I'd buy it!!! LOL

Jackie said...

I'm really liking the Chippendales more each week, as well as Trey and Lexi.

Sharon S said...

Hi! I made it ...figures it would start on time the one night I forget to check at 8.

Nickelpeed said...

I really like Trey and Lexi. Jaymes and James are hilarious.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't want them to be ahead. Dang. Where is everyone else???

Sharon S said...

Ugh...my worst nightmare of the season. :/

Nickelpeed said...

UGH! Dang, why them? grrrr

Nickelpeed said...

How did the girls get so far ahead? Did I miss something?

Becky said...

Penny, I like the same two teams. I have J&J in the pool. But they are funny.

Nickelpeed said...

LMAO - NICE

Nickelpeed said...

That is so funny. Well, you got to do what you got to do!!!

Jackie said...

Penny - They got the first flight and did the Fast Forward

Delee said...

I may be the only one to like the twins. There is only one team I dislike and that is Abbie and Ryan.
Finally the throws appeared for us!

SueGee said...

~~~SPLASH~~~

I made it!! Better late than never

Hi everyone. Hi Jackie!!

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

don't do it...

Becky said...

Hey, they are not cut throat after all. I missed them taking off their shirts. Getting a plate of ribs, potato salad and pinto beans. Can I get y'all anything?

Becky said...

Hey, Sharon.

Becky said...

And glad you joined us SueG and Delee.

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you Jackie. I thought they still had the fast forward.

Delee: I don't like Abby and Ryan, either. They are so far behind, I don't think they should be blocked. I always hate it when people use it.

Nickelpeed said...

Man, they'll be more down in the dumps when they see they got U-turned. :::sigh:::

Sharon S said...

Hi Becky.

I was hoping someone would choose the painting recreation!

Sharon S said...

I forget, what happens if someone is u-turned after they are past that point? Does it count?

Nickelpeed said...

This is kind of cool.

Jackie said...

Sharon - Nothing happens if they're already through that point.

Nickelpeed said...

Sharon - I don't think it counts at all if they have already past that point and checked in.

Becky said...

Did anyone U-turn the goat farmers?

Jackie said...

Becky - They can't. Trey and Lexi U-Turned the Chippendales (who were already through that point).

Becky said...

What nice guys.

Sharon S said...

Relieved for James and Jaymes. Sorry for the dilemma for my team Josh and Brent.

Becky said...

Goat farmers are funny too.

Nickelpeed said...

They have had the worse luck

Becky said...

I thought Trey and Lexie made a pact with the Chippies.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, have to work this coming Wednesday, so won't be here AGAIN for the Survivor fun. But will be here for the TAR fun.

Thank you Jackie; and I will see everyone next Sunday!

Jackie said...

Ryan is really bitter. After all, it wasn't the Chippendales who originally put them so far behind -- it was their flight!

Jackie said...

Becky -- They did. That's why they U-Turned them when they knew they had already gone through that point.

Becky said...

Thank you, Jackie. See you Wed.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!
