The Amazing Race: April 14, 2013 Blog Party
Sigh. Now we're delayed due to golf. Why does my cable company force me to have a Golf Network if these things aren't just covered on that? Once the show actually starts here on the East Coast, I'll post major happenings here in this very post.
As always, the real party -- assuming people are bothering to watch the show with these ridiculous delays week after week -- is in the comments area.
Okay, 60 Minutes just started a few minutes before 8pm ET. So we're running nearly an hour late. This is not acceptable.
8:56pm EDT and it's finally starting. The teams are off to Switzerland. All the teams are on the same flight, so all are caught up and starting out even once again.
Teams each get a St. Bernard rescue dog and must deliver them by train. Lots of trains so far in Switzerland. The scenery is stunning!
The Roadblock has teams climbing to retrieve a gnome, traversing the north face of a mountain cliff. Wynona/Chuck and Meghan/Joey are stuck at the Roadblock as the other teams move on.
Teams have to use a sled to transport 200 pounds of cheese in their next task. Okay, this has me laughing as they slide down with the cheese! It doesn't make up for my annoyance about the delays for the show each week.
After the cheese, it's on to the Pit Stop!

2. Mona and Beth
3. Max and Kate
4. Caroline and Jennifer
Joey and Meghan finished the cheese. Chuck and Wynona abandoned their sleds and rolled the cheese down. I don't think they can do that. The editing is making a big deal about Joey and Meghan being lost, but there's no way ... because Chuck and Wynona didn't transport their cheese the right way. They get a 30 minute penalty.
