The Amazing Race: Blog Party - February 24, 2013
Tonight, tonight ... the Oscars are tonight! But so is The Amazing Race! I anticipate our party might be a bit quiet due to the Oscars, but we're here anyway. Not only that, but the show will be starting on time tonight. So there, Hollywood!
As the show airs, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. But (unless everyone is watching the awards), the real fun is in the comments area. Come join us!
The teams all have to take a water taxi which doesn't leave until morning ... so the four hour penalty teams will start off a bit more even than expected, I believe. Dave and Conner expect the second Express Pass to be given to them, but it might not come about that easily.
Detour -- Pick a Pearl, diving for pearls or Take a Trunk, diving for trunks and set up an underwater dining experience.
Gah, Dave and Conner were in first, but had to go back for their snorkeling gear. The twins can't swim well and are talking about taking the penalty. @@ The lagging two teams haven't arrived yet.
The last two teams will only be an hour and a half behind with the water taxi schedule. The twins decided to try. Too late, they've already disappointed me! Dave and Conner made excellent time and are in second at this time, only team ahead is the YouTube couple.
The Roadblock has them kicking a coconut across the beach on stilts. Who's a well-balanced individual?
1. Bates and Anthony - won a trip to London
2. Dave and Conner - Dave may have ruptured his Achilles tendon
3. Jessica and John
4. Joey and Meghan
5. Chuck and Wynona
The twins are still struggling with the Detour. Now the two last teams are heading to the Roadblock. Pamela and Winnie are lost on their jet ski heading to the Roadblock.
6. Mona and Beth
7. Caroline and Jennifer
The twins switched Detour tasks but they're woefully in last so far.
8. Max and Katie
Pamela and Winnie are struggling with the Roadblock while the twins are heading their way. They're through it!
