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.

I'm glad the show is on time, but I'm starting to dread it because it means the weekend is over. I wish it were on another night!

Hi Jackie & Sharon

Sharon S said...

Hi Lynn, Hi Jackie!

Jackie said...

And, in the summer, it's Big Brother in the time slot on Sundays with all the sports delays. :-( I wish they'd just call it a 9pm show rather than haphazard week to week.

Sharon S said...

I agree Jackie

lynn1 said...

Yeah it is still daylight outside here

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jackie, thank you for hosting us!

Hi Sharon and Lynn!

lynn1 said...

hi Penny

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, how long from the time they start this show, until the final race, does it last?

Nickelpeed said...

They are getting a lot of face time, that's not good.

Nickelpeed said...

I LOVE the bag pipes. But, they really are hard to play. LOL

Jackie said...

I was shocked that a female HS friend picked up the bagpipes and does parades in Manhattan and such.

Jackie said...

Penny - I've read that it takes about 30 days from start to finish.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Lynn, Sharon, Penny and anyone who arrives after me.

lynn1 said...

Hi Becky

Becky said...

Yes, thank you, Jackie.

lynn1 said...

I could do Ok on drinking scotch! LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky!!

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you Jackie, I thought it was about 30 days, but was unsure.

Sharon S said...

Are they going to get in trouble for not rolling the barrels?

Becky said...

Did any of you ever walk barrels as a kid?

My grandparents had a kerosene kitchen stove and the delivered it in barrels. We would race them across the back yard walking them like one would do a log.

Becky said...

Joey is funny.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm wondering that too, Sharon. I thought you had to roll them. I hope the hockey guys do not get a penalty.

Sharon S said...

My aunts used to talk about rolling barrels...but I never did it.

I also hope no penalty for those boys..I'm rooting for them and the internet pair I think.

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, Becky, Joey is hilarious. He looks at life as one big playground.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, come on guys, don't U-turn them...not good, it could back fire if they get a penalty. Bummer.

Sharon S said...

I sure wish they had u-turned Max and Katie.

Nickelpeed said...

Played that before. You have to set the pins up yourself. It's funny, but it's a lot of fun.

lynn1 said...

I'm with you Sharon. I don't like Max so much

Nickelpeed said...

Dang, I didn't want them to come in first. Bummer.

Sharon S said...

I don't even want to watch the rest of the show tonight... it will be sad seeing them try to do both tasks.

Nickelpeed said...

Ah, good, no penalty for not rolling the barrels.

I hate to see people u-turned when they are far behind anyway. It wouldn't have mattered.

Becky said...

I haven't like Max since the beggining -- and I have him and Megan.

Nickelpeed said...

Darn. I hope it's not a elimination leg, but I have a feeling it is. I hate to see Joey and Meghan go.

Still like my Bates and Anthony though.

beggining??? LOLOLOL I meant beginning.

Delee said...

So on the U Turn they have to do Haggis and Barrels? I do not see the girls succeeding on that one!

lynn1 said...

The sad part is that neither of the teams who were U-turned were really stiff competitiion for the hockey guys or Max and Katie

Delee said...

Jackie, you have some spam!

Jackie said...

Not anymore, Delee!

Delee said...

Poof it went!

Becky said...

I hate to see the u-turn used, but especially since both of the other teams are so far behind. However, in their defense, they don't know how far behind that both of the other teams are from them. One team did say the next flight was an hour behind them.

Jackie said...

A few weeks ago I accidentally left the word verification off and didn't notice. In one day I had nearly 100 spam comments not caught by Blogger.

Becky said...

Don't get too excited Joey.

Delee said...

That would not be fun to clear, Jackie! Remember tonight!

Nickelpeed said...

These two women are terrible at getting lost.

Sharon S said...

:(

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it!! I'm sad about this.

Becky said...

Bye, guys! Thanks for the laughs, Joey.

Sharon S said...

Thanks for hosting us Jackie.

Jackie said...

You can still catch his stuff on YouTube, Becky!

lynn1 said...

Hated to see those kids go.
Thanks Jackie.
Nite everyone.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you Jackie. Appreciate you hosting us!

See everyone Wed.

Becky said...

Jackie, why would anyone who comes across a SPAM address even check it out.

Becky said...

Okay, I am off. Want to go see if they have Malcolm at the Ponderosa yet. See you guys Wed.

Jackie, thanks again.

Nickelpeed said...

Finale? Wow. I didn't realize it was getting that close!!! Go Bates and Anthony!!

Amparo said...

This is cool!
