The Amazing Race: April 28, 2013 Blog Party
The show is actually starting on time tonight here on the East Coast. Are pigs flying in Hoboken or something? As the show airs, I'll update this entry with the major happenings as well as the Pit Stop order and elimination (or not) at the end. So, please refresh the page to get the latest.
I don't know if it's the constant scheduling issues with the show due to sports delaying it or perhaps casting, but I'm not as into the show this season as I have been over the years. Although I'm not thrilled with Max and Katie, they're far from a team "I love to hate." Meghan and Joey, the YouTube best friends, are growing on me each week. I like the hockey dudes, Bates and Anthony. There's no one (other than Max) I have any real reservations about at this point. Hmm ...
When the show starts, the real party will be in comments ... come join us!
Teams are heading to Edinburgh, Scotland. Caution: U-Turn ahead. On the flights, those who thought they were first are actually last -- Joey/Meghan and Roller Derby don't know they're trailing.
Roadblock - they have to learn how to play a harmonizing note on the bagpipes while marching.
Detour - Tasty Pudding or Whiskey Rolling -- Prepare meat pudding or deliver whiskey barrels. Beth and Mona will have a Speed Bump ahead. Max and Katie actually liked their haggis. Bates and Anthony double U-Turned Joey and Meghan. Max and Katie U-Turned Mona and Beth.
Mona and Beth have to do a bowling thing (skittles) as their Speed Bump.
Pit Stop --
1. Max and Katie -- won ten grand each
2. Bates and Anthony
3. Caroline and Jennifer
4. Mona and Beth
5. Joey and Meghan -- Philiminated. :-(
Next week is the two-hour season finale. We can only hope it might air somewhere near on time.
