The Amazing Race - October 27, 2013 Blog Party


Oh my. The show might even be on time-ish tonight here on the East Coast. I believe it might be a few minutes late. But I wasn't watching the football game, so I can't be sure.

Last week we had one of those "To be continued ..." endings with the first place team being told to keep racing. Yet, they did win their prize. Hmm. As the show airs here tonight, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. I know we have a Double U-Turn ahead.

Since there was no resolution to last week's leg, Margo's blog pool standings remain the same --

Ally And Ashley - LafayetteLisanne, Jackie,Tammy
Brandon And Adam - Donna in FL, Monty924, Sharon
Jason And Amy - Nicklepeed, PDXGranny, Brian, DLA
Leo And Jamal - MEB, Margo, Brenda, Caela
Nicky And Kim - Nana in NW, Jennasmom, David
Tim And Danny - JOKATS, Dusty, Zoetawny
Tim And Marie - SueGee, DKNYNC, Rbennie
Travis And Nicole - Delee, Laurie, Lynn1, Merrilee

Sorry you have been PHILIMINATED

Hoskote And Naina
Rowan And Shane - ML, Becky, Cheryl in NC, KayBeeRN
Chester And Ephraim - Buzzmaam, Donna in AL, Sharon S

*************************************
8:07pm ET and 60 Minutes just ended. Tim and Marie did end up giving the extra Express Pass to the doctors, Travis and Nicole. That was in exchange for Pit Stop information.

Pit Stop continuation ...
2. Jason and Amy
Then three couples came in at once. Gah! I can't keep track!
Nicky and Kim were the last team to arrive, still in it, still racing.

All teams are even again on a boat and heading for Poland.

Detour - Pose or Polka. Copy stance of Neptune statue and get money from tourists. Polka is dancing, but of course! Uh-oh. At least the Neptune people have to wear their costumes until the end of the leg. Tim or Danny (whichever) might have to wear a dress!

U-Turn is just a'waiting ahead. Jason and Amy don't use the U-Turn.

Tim and Marie decide to use their Express Pass because they fear both Detours and the double U-Turn. So far, no one has used the U-Turn.

Eek! Tim and Danny U-Turned Leo and Jamal. They're the first to use it.

Roadblock -- Who has a sweet tooth? They have to search the longest apartment building in Poland for a certain pastry ... and they need to be nice. Since Tim and Marie aren't in costume, it's obvious they used the Express Pass.

Leo and Jamal U-Turned Brandon and Adam. Sigh. I was liking Brandon and Adam.

After completing the Roadblock, the teams must meet Phil on the longest pier in Europe. The last team checking in MAY be eliminated.

1. Tim and Marie - Won a trip to Hawaii
2. Jason and Amy
3. Nicole and Travis
4. Nicky and Kim
5. Tim and Danny
6. Leo and Jamal
7. Ally and Ashley
8. Brandon and Adam -- Philiminated. Wah.

Becky said...

Jackie, the tree pictures this week were outstanding. Love the fall colors! Also liked the tree with the little colored balls hanging from it.

Becky said...

Did the ugly couple give up the extra express week.

Becky said...

express pass? Helps to engage the brain!

Sharon S said...

Hello... I love it when they are in these old European countries.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jackie, Vincent and Becky!

Becky, how is Gidget?

Jackie said...

Hey, Becky. Thank you. As for the Express Pass, they were being pressured by the doctors to give it. Nothing resolved.

Splash!

Yeah finally an on time start. Go blondes!

-LafayetteLisanne

Jackie said...

Becky -- I think you must have started on time there. I'm running about 8 minutes late in this area. Yes, they did give the Express Pass.

Sharon S said...

Started on time in CT.

Nickelpeed said...

That sucks. So much for trying to stay ahead. And, the doctors managed to get the express pass! LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Sharon, it's like a step in to the past in some of these little European towns. Cobblestone, old buildings, narrow roads. It's gorgeous. I wish I could go back.

Sharon S said...

I'm hoping some day to be able to go!

Becky said...

I HATE when someone calls while I am watching my shows.

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks

Nickelpeed said...

Dang, they're all being hard on each other, aren't they? LOL

Becky said...

The Grizzlies are behaind!

Sharon S said...

Becky - me too!

Nickelpeed said...

Me, too, Becky. Get it all the time on Sundays. We just do not answer. How's Bridget?

Nickelpeed said...

LOL. Poor guy...he sure is pretty as a girl, though.

Becky said...

Hey, Sharon, Penny, Anon and Joe!

Becky said...

This dance is hard!

Becky said...

Gidget is fine. Learning the rules. Thank goodness for spray bottles with water in them.

Becky said...

Good, I am glad the guys finally got it.

Sharon S said...

I hate the U-Turn

Anonymous said...

Is it bad that i want someone to U-turn team express pass?

LafayetteLisanne

Nickelpeed said...

These poor guys, how crappy.

Nickelpeed said...

I don't like the U-turn either.

Nickelpeed said...

Yeah Becky, we use the spray bottle, too. Great device!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Glad they didn't U-turn anyone.

Uh oh, they're showing the grizzly guys a lot....hope they don't eliminated.

Nickelpeed said...

oops, don't get eliminated.

Becky said...

I love donuts! I could eat my weight in them. I can't buy them at the grocery. I would sit down and eat the entire box in one sitting.

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh....they didn't...well, these two teams will hate each other forever.

Sharon S said...

I'm afraid for the grizzlies....

Becky said...

They would have trouble getting me out of the chair until I ate the entire donut -- just to make sure they didn't change flavors, of course.

Sharon S said...

And I think I need some of those donuts.

Becky said...

Those are long apts.

Sharon S said...

He said "May be eliminated...."

Becky said...

Darn, darn, darn! I'm afraid for the grizzlies too.

Nickelpeed said...

Poor Grizzlies. I hope they catch up.

I love Cake donuts. If it's filled, it's gotta be chocolate.

David said...

Ohh nooo, the zz top dudes could be philiminated.

Nickelpeed said...

How mean can you be? Dang it. Why would they do that. Not good for the Grizzlies. Dang it!

Becky said...

Every Saturday Tommy picks his brother up when Kenneth takes his wife to the beauty shop for her sister to do her hair. The sister sends me home a donut every Saturday.

Nickelpeed said...

Dang. Poor guys. Dang.

Becky said...

DARN!

Sharon S said...

drat

Becky said...

At least they won $5,000.

Nickelpeed said...

Come on guys, don't give up!!!! Beg and dance!!!! Don't get philiminated!!!!

Sharon S said...

Hate the u-turn even more now.

Becky said...

Jackie, thanks for hosting us. Hope we have more tree pictures next week.

BTW, I will be in NYC in June for another Beagle Mom Reunion. Hope you, Ruth and I can meet for dinner again.

See you Wed.

Sharon S said...

Thanks for hosting Jackie. Hopefully "see" everyone on Wed.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm sad

Nickelpeed said...

CRAP!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you for hosting Jackie. See you all Wednesday night.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by! And, Becky ... if you're still here as I'm on delay ... I'm sure June dinner in the city is doable!

Sharon N said...

Too bad. I rather liked those two.
