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!

1. Bates and Anthony -- also won a trip to Bora Bora
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.

5. Joey and Meghan
6. Chuck and Wynona -- Philiminated

I'll be hopping back and forth between CA and TAR. I have an addiction to Gary Busey, lol.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and peeps. I am so sick of Sunday shows being late because of sports.

Becky said...

If it wasn't for this blog I think I would just up on CBS Sundays.

Jackie said...

Becky - I'd give it up, too ... if not for the blog. :(

Sharon S said...

I think I missed an episode.... Oh well.....time to move on with those who remain.

I forgot who I am rooting for though....

Sharon S said...

They should move Amazing Race to another night.

monty924 said...

Thank goodness for the DVR. I also like Chopped, but I have to wait to tape it at the later time... THANKS to CBS. Can't tape three shows at once, sigh.

I'm probably going to miss a lot of tonights show. I'll catch up in a bit. :)))

Becky said...

You tell 'em, Honey!

Becky said...

I dislike over bearing people.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi everyone~~~~Splash!!!

Thank you for hosting Jackie.

Hi Monty, SueGee, Becky and Sharon!!!

Jackie said...

My blog pool team got the boot last week. I have no real strong favorites left in the race -- my personal favorite team had been the father and son. I guess I'll root for the hockey players. They do well and don't fight, plus they can be funny.

Jackie said...

Er. last episode, my blog pool team got the boot. That was two weeks ago.

Sharon S said...

They are showing an awful lot of Chuck &Wynona tonight. Wonder if this is it for them.

Nickelpeed said...

It is so beautiful there.
Not the tunnel, but outside. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Gary Busey is so funny. He was fine until his accident. Sure he was crazy before, but his control was better, now, he just says what's on his mind, unfiltered.

Nickelpeed said...

I really like the Hockey brothers.

Sharon S said...

Wow...I can't look without feeling panicky.

Becky said...

I know that Chuck and Wynona probably need the money more than the rest, but his mouth turns me off.

Becky said...

The hockey players are funny.

Nickelpeed said...

I will attest to the fact, that these mountains are beautiful and it looks just like we see here. One of my favorite tours on bus, was to the Matterhorn. Will never forget taking a gondola up to the top and witnessing an avalanche. It engulfed a small house as if it weren't even there!!!

SueGee said...

Hi everyone!! I still have Chuck & Wy but you if they are getting lots of camera tonight it may be the end!

SueGee

Becky said...

Did Wynona say she wanted to do the task. Someone please slap Chuck up against the side of the head.

Nickelpeed said...

He's a nasty, mean, person. Darn it.

Becky said...

He would pee his pants if it had been him! He didn't even tell her that he was proud of her.

Nickelpeed said...

They are going to need a break from each other after this.

Becky said...

Wynona will never make it up that hill.

Nickelpeed said...

The hockey brothers have been in first place a lot. Usually, that is not good because it usually means they do not win the game...

Nickelpeed said...

I really would love to see these two guys win. But, we all know how this game goes.

Boy Becky - you were right - she probably will not make it up!!

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, even with my bad back and knees, I think I could make it up that steep hill, especially for THAT much money. I might be winded, but dang it...I would do it. LOL

Jackie said...

Penny - Some seasons back, a team won most of the legs and won. I can't remember their names, but long-haired young guys.

Jackie said...

25 years ago I could have kicked butt on the race. Now, I'd probably make Wynona look fit.

SueGee said...

I might be able to keep up in a TAR for seniors ha ha

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

I have a feeling Wynonna and Chuck will be eliminated this week

Becky said...

Say what? Darn, read the clues!

Nickelpeed said...

I feel sorry for her. Wow, she's exhausted. HOWEVER....

Becky said...

I would not blame her if she divorced him!

Becky said...

Thanks, Jackie. See you guys on Wed. LYM

Sharon S said...

He wasn't very kind to here this leg....

Nickelpeed said...

He treated her terrible.

Thank you so much for hosting, Jackie.

Everyone have a nice week; and see you all Wednesday night. I'm hoping to not miss many more Survivor nights, but with baseball, it makes it hard.

Sharon S said...

Thanks Jackie
Night everyone.

Jackie said...

Sue - We could be a team! Heights don't bother me, but I can't eat weird foods. I can drive a stick shift and can swim.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by folks. I really wish this show had a dependable time slot. Tonight's lack of party people is a testament to lost audience.

Nickelpeed said...

I love that maze next week!!

Nickelpeed said...

I agree, Jackie. It's too bad. Great show, just unstable CBS
