The Amazing Race: November 17, 2013 Episode Blog Party


Oh my. It's actually starting at its scheduled time of 8pm here on the East Coast. Be still, my heart! As the show airs here, I'll update this post with the major happenings -- refresh the page to get the latest updates! But, as always, the real party is in the comments section. Come join us!

As last week was a non-Philimination leg, the Magnificent Margo's latest blog pool update remains the same:

Ally And Ashley - LafayetteLisanne, Jackie,Tammy
Jason And Amy - Nicklepeed, PDXGranny, Brian, DLA
Leo And Jamal - MEB, Margo, Brenda, Caela
Nicky And Kim - Nana in NW, Jennasmom, David
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
Brandon And Adam - Donna in FL, Monty924, Sharon
Tim And Danny - JOKATS, Dusty, Zoetawny

Let's RACE!

The teams have to use their satchel of coins from Norway to unlock SUVs and they're heading into the dunes. U-Turn ahead.

They have to drive dune buggies across the desert to find their next clue. Nicky and Kim burned out the clutch (and almost buried) their dune buggy and had to get a replacement. So, not only are they last, but they're LAST.

Detour - Wedding guest, fix and prepare wedding dish. Beauty Contest has them primping camels.

Travis and Nicole use their Express Pass to bypass the Detour. They hit the double U-Turn and snag Leo and Jamal.

Due to the Express Pass, Nicole and Travis are at the Roadblock -- raft through rapids and grabbing three flags.

Tim and Marie are running around literally clueless. Heh. It sucks to be them right now, huh? (They're my least favorite team this season.)

Pit Stop -
1. Nicole and Travis - each won their choice of any "eco-boost" Ford

Jason and Amy U-Turn the bunnies (Nicky and Kim)

2. Jason and Amy
3. Tim and Marie (boo)

For Nicky and Kim's speed bump they have to make their way through a wave generating pool.

4. Leo and Jamal
5. Ally and Ashley
6. Nicky and Kim -- Philiminated

Hi folks,

Joe in NY said...

The good news is, I can watch with you folks this week. The bad news is: I haven't been watching and have no idea what is going on! LOL

Sharon S said...


Hi Joe and Jackie, and others who arrive. Joe, it's still fun to watch the challenges, even if you don't know who people are!

Jackie said...

Hey, Joe! It was a non-Philim last week. Nicky and Kim will have a speed bump this week.

Joe in NY said...

Thanks, Jackie...but I"m like 3 weeks behind!

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Joe and Sharon.

Hi everyone

Jackie said...

I have some Bronx Pale Ale ...

Becky said...

That looks like fun.

Becky said...

I really do not like the cousins.

Becky said...

Camel road crossing?

lynn1 said...

They are real jerks aren't they

Sharon S said...

She's digging them deeper....yikes.

Jackie said...

If they keep that up, the dune buggy will be buried in the sand soon.

Sharon S said...

The camel one is hilarious

lynn1 said...

I would go for the cooking. I don't like camels so much

Sharon S said...

Yay -- glad the Docs made both of those moves.

lynn1 said...

I love it Leo and Jamal are getting pay back

Joe in NY said...

how the heck do you choose a prize-winning camel

Becky said...

ROFLOL Wait until she sees "her contestant"!

Sharon S said...

She handled it well, Becky!

Sharon S said...

lol

Jackie said...

Dressing a cat up would be harder! But at least cat kicks don't really hurt. However, camels don't have claws.

Joe in NY said...

See, I would totally avoid the camels if possible. Just because it is one of those very random, needle-in-a-haystack challenges. It's like dog shows, if you aren't a pro, they all look the same.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi all. Storm went through and lost my Internet for awhile.

So the brothers are mad because they got detoured? LOLOL. Payback is a bitch.

lynn1 said...

Not to mention camels are mean spirited and nasty

Nickelpeed said...

They are kidding, aren't they? They U-turned someone, so it's payback time.

This woman drives me nuts. So, she U-turns the women. She's so vindictive, isn't she?

lynn1 said...

Tim ans Marie are really PITA and spoil sports

Nickelpeed said...

Have these two girls noticed they've been U-turned yet?

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, Tim and Marie are mean. They didn't have to detour these women. They already had a to do something extra. Good, at least they go through it.

Sharon S said...

Did Ally and Ashley do the speed bump yet?

Nickelpeed said...

What a mean woman.

Nickelpeed said...

That's sad, I wanted these women to go further. Poor Nicky and Kim.

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting us. See everyone on Wednesday!!!

Becky said...

That's a shame. They were nice gals.

Thank you, Jackie. See you Wed.

Sharon S said...

I agree Penny - they were more likable than some of the other teams.

Thanks Jackie!

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. See all of you on Wed.

Jackie said...

Sharon - It was Nicky and Kim who had to do the Speed Bump ... plus they got U-Turned. No way could they have caught up, especially since one also had fears which kept her from making good time in the speed bump.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by, everyone! I hope Margo and others in the path of the Midwest storms are okay.

Joe in NY said...

bye

Hi Jackie and the whole world,
This season offered a wonderful cast all very likable and the bunnies will be missed but have good lives.
Anyone know the chicken recipe the boys were making?
If anyone knows, please post it here. Thanks!
