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!

The latest blog pool standings from that Marvelous Margo --

Flight Time & Big Easy - Laurie, Donna in FL, nicklepeed
Jen & Caroline - Lynn1, Buzzmaam, DLA
Dave & Connor - Becky, Auntie Leigh, Rochelle
Brendon & Rachel (Brenchal) - Terry in TX, Brian
Jessica & John - Sharon S, David, Rbennie
Cord & Jet (Cowboys) - ML, Nana in NW, Delee
Leo & Jamal (Afghanimals) - Jackie, Jennamom, Merrilee

Philiminated --
Mark & Mallory - SueGee, jonMD1627, Margo
Joey & Meghan - Brenda, Zoetawny, Dusty
Margie & Luke - Donna in AL, Monty924, PDXGranny

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.

Pit Stop --
1. Leo and Jamal - Trip for two to Berlin, Germany
2. Jet and Cord
3. Jessica and John
4. Connor and Dave

Dave and Connor had their taxi driver steer the Globetrotters wrong.

5. Brendan and Rachel
6. Flight Time and Big Easy
7. Caroline and Jennifer -- NOT Philiminated!

Yep, another non-Philimination leg!

Sharon S said...

Rachel is like my students -- doesn't pay attention to directions!

Jackie said...

No one is telling Rachel she screwed up. Will we see a meltdown?

lynn1 said...

Rachel is going to blow a gasket before she figures it out

Becky said...

None of the teams has been real unlikeable this season. That's a first.

Sharon S said...

I know, Becky. I'm not sure who I'll be okay with actually leaving from here on out.

David said...

We got lucky and the teams with the twins was eliminated first.

And Hi everyone =)

lynn1 said...

Go fast Cowboys

Nickelpeed said...

They've all been pretty decent so far.

Except these two guys. Grrrrr, the brothers

David said...

Are you going to feel like the guy in the Kingsford commercial when it finally warms up outside.

The was nothing, it was cold and white outside. Get that man a burger.

Sharon S said...

The brothers just brought back the behavior that makes them unlikable.

lynn1 said...

Glad to say spring has arrived down here

Jackie said...

We've gone from winter storm warnings here to flood warnings (although this rain is supposed to end in sleet and snow overnight).

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it. Drat.

lynn1 said...

Nickelpeed said...
