The Amazing Race: March 17, 2013 Episode Blog Party
Yipes! The promos say that one team will quit tonight, another will be eliminated! I fear it may be David and Connor quitting. I sincerely hope not as they are very enjoyable to watch and they're pretty darn incredible, too. But, with David's Achilles tendon injury and being on crutches, I don't see how they can last much longer.
The show is going to be on time again here -- I believe that just might be a world record. As it airs, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. So, if you're trying to keep track, refresh this page to see the latest. But, as always, the real party is in the comments. Come join us!
Teams are on their way to Hanoi, Vietnam. Sigh. Dave said they're going to fly to Hanoi and be eliminated since doctors recommended surgery on his leg within seven days.
Caution -- U-Turn ahead.
They hit a bunching up point in Hanoi and still don't know who was eliminated in the prior leg.
Yes, Dave and Connor went to the mat early ... to disqualify themselves. What a great father and son team! Now, they're someone I'd like to see be given another chance in the future.
The rest of the teams plan on targeting the Roller Derby Moms and YouTube couple (Joey and Meghan) with the U-Turn.
The Roadblock sounds way complicated. Listening to a song touting Vietnam socialism, finding a poster with phrases used in the song, etc. After completing the Roadblock, the teams have to take part in a Vietnamese bamboo stick dance which looks like another level of Double Dutch without ropes to me!
Detour: Make Your Move -- a giant chess game using people. Or Make Your Meal, pick up live chickens, purchase ingredients, prepare two dishes of a cultural Vietnamese dish.
It's a Double U-Turn and they remain anonymous doing it. Pam and Winnie, first there, U-Turned Meghan and Joey.
1. Pam and Winnie - also won a trip to Whistler Ski Resort. They're my blog pool team. Yay!
Joey and Meghan U-Turned Chuck and Winona, a team which has all but U-Turned themselves anyway.
2. Max and Katie
3. Mona and Beth
4. Bates and Anthony
5. Caroline and Jennifer
Chuck and Winona are pitiful.
6. Joey and Meghan
7. Chuck and Winona ... NOT Philiminated because Dave and Connor left the race. Apparently they don't have a Speed Bump ahead either like in a non-Philimination leg.
