The Amazing Race: All-Stars - March 2 Blog Party


Sure, others are having Oscar parties, but that's not my kind of scene. My own Oscar-related prediction is that this here blog party is probably going to be quieter than many as so many will be watching the awards show. Oh well. More snacks and tasty beverages for us, eh?

The Magnificent Margo has done the random match-up for the blog pool and here it is --

Flight Time & Big Easy - Laurie, Donna in FL, nicklepeed
Mark & Mallory - SueGee, jonMD1627, Margo
Jen & Caroline - Lynn1, Buzzmaam, DLA
Dave & Connor - Becky, Auntie Leigh, Rochelle
Margie & Luke - Donna in AL, Monty924, PDXGranny
Brendon & Rachel (Brenchal) - Terry in TX, Brian
Jessica & John - Sharon S, David, Rbennie
Cord & Jet (Cowboys) - ML, Nana in NW, Delee
Joey & Meghan - Brenda, Zoetawny, Dusty
Leo & Jamal (Afganimals) - Jackie, Jennamom, Merrilee

Tonight's show is actually even starting on time! As it airs here, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest update. As always, the party (or perhaps lack thereof due to the Oscars) is down in the comments. Come join us!

Teams are remaining in China for now. They have to meet up with a "Master" who will ink a clue on their foreheads. The Cowboys aren't doing too well at the start of this one. The forehead clue leads them to a Roadblock at a play park in a mall. Dave and Connor got there first. They have to build a kiddie car.

Wow! Mark built that car like he could have done it blindfolded! They have to take the cars with them to deliver them. Margie/Luke are in second. But ... GAH ... Mallory left her backpack behind after they put the car in the trunk of their taxi! The blondes are finally at the Roadblock. Eep. It was MARK's backpack she left behind. They have to go back for it, thus losing their lead.

The blondes are trying to get the cowboys to give them the Express Pass. Oh my gosh ... they gave it to them!

Before they head back for the bag, M&M deliver the car. The Detour clue has them playing hacky-sack or Featherball or China Cup.  No one seems to be choosing the latter. Mark and Mallory are wasting a lot of time arguing about going back for the pack or doing the Detour. Mallory has Mark's passport but Mark wants his other stuff. They blew their first place lead.

Margie and Luke are currently leading the pack. Nope. Now it's Dave and Connor leading.

Most of the teams are heading to the Pit Stop.

Pit Stop --
1. Brenchal - won $2500 each
2. Margie and Luke
3. Caroline and Jennifer -- did not use the pass given to them
4. Dave and Connor
5. Globetrotters
6. Cowboys
7. Leo and Jamal

The remaining teams are stuck at the Detour. Meghan and Joey get through first.

8. John and Jessica
9. Meghan and Joey -- that's what they get for helping John and Jessica at the Roadblock!
10. Mark and Mallory -- Philiminated

Aw, that's sad.

~~~SPLASH~~~~ hi everyone. Thank you for hosting Jackie!!!!

On time....I'm surprised!!! We had basketball here!

Hope every one in line of the storms are safe and warm.

Nickelpeed said...

I'll DVR the Oscars and check updates.

Jackie said...

Hi, guys! Er, well ... gals. I expect it to be a bit quiet tonight.

Oscars don't even start for 30 min

Nickelpeed said...

Well, it should be much quieter without the twins.

I hope the cowboys finally understand that they cannot walk to this academy; otherwise, they could be eliminated.

Nickelpeed said...

Finally! They swallowed their pride and took a taxi. Now they are way behind.

Sharon S said...

Hi everyone, I'm here! Late...how come CBS is never late when I am, but when I'm on time they are late?

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, toy making...toxic toy making. LOL

Becky said...

Hey, I am finally here. Hello, everyone. I will be watching AR. I haven't been to a movie in over a year. I finally bought Hunger Games so we could see it. I am too worn out emotionally when I get home each day.

Jackie said...

That food sounds good, Lynn! When I saw "bull riding" listed earlier for CBS here, I groaned. I can just see the show delayed for bull riding in the NYC viewing area!

lynn1 said...

Crawfish tastes like mini lobster it is sweeter than shrimp

Nickelpeed said...

It will be ironic if the Cowboys lose this because of pride. They didn't want to use a taxi.

I wonder how many of these kids actually make these cars....;-)

Becky said...

...Yes, toy making...toxic toy making. LOL

Penny, "ain't that the truth!"

Rachael wants a baby? Yuk! I hate to see those two reproduce!

Nickelpeed said...

Yep, that's why they call them sweat shops! LOL

Very happy for him. I'm thrilled.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh nooooooo!!!

Becky said...

I am on team Dave and Connor! Yippee!! Thanks Margo.

SueGee said...

I'm on team Mark & Mallory - bad news if the previews are true

David said...

I have Jessica and John. Barely remmeber them from before only because they got eliminated with express pass in pocket. Had to look them up to remember that much. And they were not shown much last week so I was clueless as to who they were. =]

Oh, and hi everyone, =D

Nickelpeed said...

Quit arguing and just go get the backpack.

Becky said...

I loved the Hillbillies the first time. I hope that Marley doesn't ruin it for them. He had told HER to get his backpack. If Mark's health improves I hope they are able to come back.

I wonder how Dave's and Connor's cancer is doing?

SueGee said...

Oscars have started with Ellen doing a hilarious monologue

Becky said...

Noticed she didn't offer to buy him some clothes.

Becky said...

Great! Conner and Dave are finished.

Sharon S said...

Wow...Jet and Cord sure have lots of talents!

Nickelpeed said...

What is she talking about going back would make them lose, she's not doing really well with this feather kicking.

Jackie said...

Thanks for the Oscar updates, Sue. It must be weird to have the show on so early there and not in primetime.

SueGee said...

Its one of the few we see in real time. It has been on since 2 this afternoon

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you Sue Gee, keep them coming.

Anonymous said...

Sharon S said...

Teams seem pretty evenly matched, at least the first two episodes.

Sharon S said...

Any chance this is a non-elim?

Nickelpeed said...

Dang, Mark and Mallory are last. Dang it. I really like Mark and Bopper, but I don't know about Mallory. :-(

Sharon S said...

:(

Nickelpeed said...

Crap!

David said...

LOL, these springtime, lets get the grass going, fertilizer, and other outside and yard commercials make me laugh this year. Winter has a icey grip on most of the country still and they just seem like the company is wasting money this year.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm very sad. Crap, Crap, Crap

Sharon S said...

Thanks Jackie. See everyone on Wednesday.

Anonymous said...

I use to like Mallory!! It is at least mostly her fault that they left the backpack. Showing herself to be a spoiled brat. Guess she needs her dad to keep her in line.

Jackie said...

Aw. that's a sad finish.

SueGee said...

See you Wednesday!!

Becky said...

No, they are gone! Boy the hour flies when with such great company.

See you Wed. Take care.

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. It was fun.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by, folks!

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you Jackie. Appreciate it.

I have to work Wednesday, so will not be here for the Survivor blog. I'll try to check in on my cell phone.

I think the blondes did use their express pass on the cars.
