Although I'm putting the post up at the normal 8pm ET start time, I can't update this entry until the show comes on. Once it does, as it airs, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. As always ... the real party is in the comments area. Come join us!

I expect the show to start here in the NYC area at about 8:45pm. Grr.

8:45pm ET -- Finally we have theme music and the show is starting!

The first clue has them in a bunching situation with a ship not opening until morning. Then it's off to the salt mines.

Detour - Has them riding bikes, choosing between brining and mining tasks. Then they take a thousand-mile bus trip to Santiago, Chile.

The Roadblock has them shining shoes, putting together a shoe shine stand and delivering it.

Pit Stop order --
Leo and Jamal got there first, but hadn't paid the cab right.

1. Chester and Ephraim - they won a trip for two
2. Leo and Jamal
3. Brandon and Adam
4.Jason and Amy
5. Travis and Nicole
6. Tim and Danny
7. Ally and Ashley
8. Tim and Marie
9. Nicky and Kim
10. Rowan and Shane -- Philiminated

Thanks for the timing update. I'm not going to make the party as I unintentionally pulled an all-nighter doing an assignment for an online course. Who knew you could still do that at 45 yrs old? Anyway, what I cannot still do is stay up til 10 tonight. Please ask my team to not get eliminated tonight!

David said...

Ahhh, another week where I will only be a few minutes behind you east coasters. Show starts on time here in 38 minutes.

David said...

And gooooo baseball wives. Had to go look them up to see who my pool picks are. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

I'll keep checking back, since 60 minutes is still on. Be back soon!!

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Sharon, David, Penny and others who arrive.

Hey, I got my groove back. Thank you everyone who tried to help.

Becky said...

I don't know why they don't read the clue at least twice before they jump in.

lynn1 said...

Hi Jackie & everyone

lynn1 said...

Jackie can you remove the captcha?

Becky said...

Hey, Lynn.

lynn1 said...

Hi Becky , Glad you got your "puter" fixed

Jackie said...

I turned off the word verification. Oops. I thought I had already done that!

SueGee said...

~~~SPLASH~~~

Hi everyone! Sorry I'm late. Between laundry and dinner I'm glad I made it!!

SueGee on the Left Coast

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie!

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks

SueGee said...

So I have the Jersey couple. Hmmmm. Wonder if they can last even with the pass?

SueGee on the Left Coast

SueGee said...

Becky - what did you end up doing to get your computer to work?

SueGee on the Left Coast

Becky said...

Lynn, On a computer I feel so Forrest Gump. My knowledge can be put in a thimble and have room to spare.

Why doesn't the guy whose wife is having a hard time riding the bike take her back pack?

I have Rowan and Shane.

Margo said...

Yea they started late so I'm here for the end of the party!

lynn1 said...

I have travis and nicole and she is already getting on my last nerve

Nickelpeed said...

Where is everyone?

Hi Jackie, thank you for hosting.

Hi Vincent....chew on some catnip!

Hi Becky. How are you doing?

Hi Margo!

Hi SueGee.

Hi Lyn

Hi Joe

Hi David

I guess I should have put everyone's name in one sentence!!!

Joe in NY said...

Worst part of the delay isn't The Amazing Race, it's everything after it. UGH! I can't stay up until midnight watching TV...LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Oops, Hi Sharon!!!

SueGee said...

Hi back Penny!!

SueGee on the Left Coast

Nickelpeed said...

I can't either, Joe. I'm finally getting enough nerve to go in to get my teeth fixed. I decided to let Residents do it with Dentists watching over them. Even with insurance, it's expensive, so I've put it off and off. I'll let interns work on me! Some have the most amazing eyes....LOL

David said...

Hi all ;-) A little behind you all. They are just getting to the salt mines here.

Nickelpeed said...

LOL...oops...they misunderstood. Oh dear, they're screwed.

Becky said...

Okay, SueGee, please don't laugh too hard.

Before I got on my blog to sign in and top of Jackie's . The blog is on Google.

TODAY I suddenly remember clicking on the Google Accout as avised and that it didn't work. I started thinking (duh) that I never opened a Google account. I did and I am good! Blame it on old age!

I decided Snoopy and his partner Woodstock should be on the A-R blog.

Joe in NY said...

Nickelpeed - good luck! Frankly, the Residents are probably more careful than the dentists since someone is looking over their shoulder.

Nickelpeed said...

Ooooooooo, can't wait until Wednesday. Saw the commercial and it looks great!!!!

SueGee said...

Becky - you can't be older than me LOL

I'm glad you figured it out!

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, Becky!! LOL....at least you remembered. I have had to change my password SO many times, because I forget where I wrote it down. I've gone threw every dog name, every nickname and have had to come up with new ones at LEAST once a month. It's terrible.

Nickelpeed said...

Yay, for these guys. I like them.

Becky said...

I don't like these guys. They will be gone before the end. You can't get there fighting.

My Bingo Boys are caught up. Oooh, nasty attitude little girl.

lynn1 said...

Pink pigtail girl is a royal pain

David said...

Did I see the Survivor copmmercial correctly and see the returning players at tribal council. That could be interesting .

Becky said...

Another not reading the clue through.

Nickelpeed said...

That's sad, but they misunderstood the people at the ticket counter. :-(


Well will see everyone Wednesday. Thank you Jackie.

Need to give my pup attention. He's been whining a lot and is not sick.

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. See all of you on Wed night.

Nickelpeed said...

I saw the commercial, too, David. Can't wait to see it. I noticed I said I saw a commercial, but never said for what. LOL.

Becky said...

Poor Bingo Roman.
Well, now I can decide who's floatie I want to climb on. Jackie, it is so sweet that you heated the pool.

See all of you Wed. Thanks,Jackie.

David said...

Nickelpeed, when you said for wendsday I figured Survivor and since I am about 15 minutes behind you all on the show I watched for it. ;-)

David said...

Ohhh Noooo, my team pick, baseball wives are hanging on by a thread. Thanks Jackie, see you all on Weds.
