The Amazing Race All-Stars: 'Down and Dirty' Blog Party - March 30
Well, I didn't really expect the show to start on time here what with March Madness still going on. However, every season it's something sports knocking our Sunday night 8pm ET shows back. Grr. 60 Minutes started at 7:20pm EDT, so I expect TAR to start 20 minutes late.
As the show airs here in the NYC viewing area, I'll update this post with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest! Of course, you know where the real party is ... down in the comments. Come watch the show with us!

Time to get off this Pit Stop mat and on with the race!
Teams are on their way to the Dutch Museum (still in Sri Lanka). Now, the twinnies must be dying as they missed the leg in their native land. It's a bunch-up, open 8 to 5. Off for a train ride! All are on the same train.
Roadblock - Who wants to fill 'er up? Finding and filling up teeny taxis. Rachel screws up by filling up the cars of her color, not realizing she was looking for a marker of her color on the windshield instead. Finally John told her, then took her "green" car for himself as it was a red tag on it.
Big Easy, who could lift the cars by himself, was the first through. It's now a trip by train, then tuck-tuck (teeny taxi) to the elephants. They all manage to get on the same train.
Detour - Truck or Sheets. Choosing timber, working with an elephant to transport six logs. Sheets - making paper with elephant dung. I think most want to actually work with the elephants rather than the dung! Due to there only being four chains, they reluctantly split up to do dung.
Cowboys, then Afghanimals are the first down with either part of the Detour -- they both did elephants.
After traveling to get a clue from a musical wise man, it's off to the Pit Stop. Cowboys in the lead with Afghanimals right on their tails.
