The Amazing Race: October 20, 2013 Episode Blog Party


Tonight's episode isn't scheduled to start here until 8:30pm (ET) due to football games. You know how I love that. Grr. Once it does start, I'll post the major happenings here in this entry as it airs. But, as always, the real party will be in the comments area. Everyone is welcome to join in!

***************************************
It's starting! The teams are heading off to Norway next! All teams are on the same flight this time.

Detour - Hang Your Heads (hanging fish heads) or Hammering the Cods (smashing cod into jerky).Heh. Tim and Marie (the evil ones) don't know they're hanging their heads on an unmarked pole instead of a marked one. Everyone is passing them!

Roadblock - Who's the biggest swinger? An arctic plunge from a bridge in a harness, then a swim for the clue. Then they have to pull a boulder with a brand placement vehicle to get their next clue.

Ha! Tim and Marie left their clue behind thinking the coins they found were the clue.

Can you tell I'm not keen on Tim and Marie?

Pit Stop:
1. Brandon and Adam - also won $5,000 each.

Uh-oh ... the teams are still racing. They got a clue to carry on.

Heehee. The doctors realize Tim and Marie don't know where the Pit Stop is and try to get the spare Express Pass from them.

Then we get "To be continued."

Sigh.

On a bright note, they played a bit of Fish Heads by Barnes and Barnes during the credits.

Double U-Turn ahead next week!

Hello everyone.

Jackie is the blogging and picture possibilities from the same company or are you fortunate to have two company's fighting over you? ;-)

And the captcha is still on also.

Jackie said...

Two unrelated opportunities. I just turned off the captcha. I was waiting for the show to start here.

David said...

I hope they both come through for you, you deserve it. ;-)

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and David. Jackie, I agree with David 100%.

Jackie said...

Thank you!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jackie, thank you for doing this, it is greatly appreciated!

Hi Becky and David.

Becky, when's the big day for you???

Becky said...

I sort of like the Grizzly Adam's friends. The blond bimbos not so much.

Becky said...

Hey, Penny. Tuesday at 11:30 AM she should be here.

Sharon S said...

Hi everyone,

I've been MIA a lot -- putting in way too many hours for my students. I guess my pool picks needed me though -- both my TAR and Survivor picks have been eliminated already! Oh well...I get to root for who I want.

Trying to watch while writing a letter of recommendation tonight. So I'm pretty much going to be a lurker.

Becky said...

Pushing that wheelbarrow uphill is going to be hard for the girl teams.

Becky said...

Hey, Sharon.

Jackie said...

Even harder for the Afghanimals with the flat tire!

Nickelpeed said...

Yay, Becky! I can't wait to see her!!!!

Becky said...

Like the good old boys from OK. Not crazy about the cousines with the flat tire.

Nickelpeed said...

Man, those are some bright pants, aren't they!! LOL

David said...

Yea, for some reason the afghanimals attidue and cockiness grate on me. lol

Nickelpeed said...

I like the long haired dudes.

The brothers with the flat tire are so quick to get ahead, they forget to check their equipment.

Becky said...

Since I am out of the "official race" I am rooting for the Grizzly Adams. Want to join me Sharon.

Becky said...

This leg of the race is rough.

Becky said...

Penny, are the "long hair dudes" the ones with the beards? They are the Grizzly Adams I like.

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, Becky. I think some of them call them animals. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

I think it's Brandon and Adam

Nickelpeed said...

My husband just asked me if they were exes and I said yes. He laughed and said, it's not hard to tell that. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Those guys are so funny. LOL

My team is still in it, though, Jason and Amy.

Nickelpeed said...

Yikes!!! o_O

Jackie said...

Tim and Marie are my local team. I don't like them, though. They're obnoxious.

Becky said...

Every season there is at least one team that does not know how to use a stick shift. HELLO -- if you apply for the show learn to drive one BEFORE you go.

Jackie said...

I'm thinking this is probably going to be a non-elim leg. I would have preferred it last week to save the football dudes.

Nickelpeed said...

Me, too, Jackie. I really liked the football guys. I feel bad for them. They really got screwed.

Sharon S said...

Becky, if I can figure out who people are, I'll root for them!

Sharon S said...

Are these the Grizzly Adams ...with the truck and chains?

Nickelpeed said...

Yay, Grizzlies!!!

Becky said...

ROFLOL!!! What goes around comes around!

Becky said...

Sharon, the Grizzly's are the ones with the long hair, beards and who can live off of the land.

Becky said...

Jackie, thanks for hosting. I will see you all Wed. Night.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh no, no.

Sharon S said...

I like them -- I'll root for 'em!

Nickelpeed said...

See you Becky!!

Sharon S said...

Left in the middle?!
