The Amazing Race All-Stars: 'Accidental Alliance' Blog Party - April 28


Oh my ... it looks like three teams are going to team up against Brenchal. Too bad, so sad. Although they have been running a good race for the most part and are definitely more bearable in their latest 15 minutes of CBS reality show fame, I wouldn't be heartbroken if they were knocked off the racetrack!

As the show airs  ... and it's actually airing ON TIME here this week ... I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest! As always, the party is in the comments area. Come watch the show with us!

Here are the latest blog pool standings going into tonight's episode:
Jen & Caroline - Lynn1, Buzzmaam, DLA
Dave & Connor - Becky, Auntie Leigh, Rochelle
Brendon & Rachel (Brenchal) - Terry in TX, Brian
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
Jessica & John - Sharon S, David, Rbennie
Flight Time & Big Easy - Laurie, Donna in FL, nicklepeed

Teams are on their way to Switzerland. Uh-oh. All the teams are on one train except for Jet and Cord. They got lost and are on the next one.

Rachel quote: "Who needs friends?"

There's a bunching point at the William Tell clue and the cowboys show up. Now they're driving to Luzern. Heh. Brenchal got lost.

Teams have to rehab hotel rooms wrecked by rock stars. Um. Okay. Brenchal is still lost. All the other teams are at the hotel. Brenchal is now there. The cowboys finish first, then the Afghanimals. Now the girls and Dave/Connor are also on their way. Brenchal remains last.

Teams have to guess what a huge doohickey was used for (to drill a tunnel). Then they must figure out the year of their product placement Ford Mustang.

Cowboys still in the lead. Followed by Dave/Connor.

Roadblock has them delivering milk via dog sled and gondola.

Apparently there is no Detour tonight. It's the cowboys in the lead closely followed by Dave/Connor. Gah. Brenchal is now in third place. Oh my gosh, Dave and Connor have taken over the lead! The Afghanimals, Dave/Connor and Cowboys are now all bunched up in a gondola heading to the pit stop. I think the girls are still stuck at the Roadblock.

Pit Stop:
1. DAVE AND CONNOR! They won a 2015 Mustang/
2. Jet and Cord
3. Leo and Jamal
4. Brenchal

The girls are still at the Roadblock.

It's a non-Philimination leg. Jennifer and Caroline are still in it!

Hi Jackie & everyone,
My computer crashed and I am using a old relic that may or may not last through the show.

Sharon S said...

Hi Jackie, Hi Lynn...good luck with the computer.

Jackie said...

Hi, Lynn! Hopefully it will last! We're off to a real quiet start tonight.

Sharon S said...

Worried about the Cowboys. I'd love to see them win, but they aren't off to a good start on this leg.

SueGee said...

Howdy everyone. I'm here and I brought Teryaki Chicken and Pineapple Hawaiian Style (Costco heat-up) and some rice.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Lynn and Sharon. Hope the computer holds up. I will be lurking. I'm not very good company lately.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi everyone!!! Thank you for hosting Jackie!

Sorry Jackie...hope you get your other one fixed soon.

lynn1 said...

The world's oldest bridge burned up some years back and had to be totally reconstructed

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, they do not like Brenchal, do they? Accidental alliance, my you know what!

Jackie said...

Sue - Congrats on the new car!

Jackie said...

Penny - It's Lynn's computer. Mine's fine (knock on wood).

Sharon S said...

I wouldn't mind the Accidental Alliance if it included the Cowboys. I'm pretty sure I'd be happiest if the Cowboys of father/son team won.

lynn1 said...

I did not plan on having to consider a new computer this year but...

SueGee said...

Thanks Jackie! It is such a dream to drive.

For those who don't know me on FB, it is a 2014 Honda CRV, white with black leather interior.

SueGee said...

Lynn, you might be surprised at how cheap you can get a powerful laptop these days. You will just have to deal with Windows 8 (ugh)

Oh, Lynn, I'm double sorry. I read it wrong.

Hope your computer lasts. I had one like that a couple years back. Only 3 years old and it died. Couldn't help it, so had to get another one.

I used to chambermaid when I was a kid. I had an eye of an eagle little old lady who used to inspect the room.

So, when I went in to the military, my beds were perfect. LOL

Becky said...

I love the Cowboys! Also Dave ad Connor.

Nickelpeed said...

Gosh, they all hate Rachel and Branden.

Smart Cowboys. I really like them.

OMGOSH, I love these cars!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Why would you tell them???? Dang it

Nickelpeed said...

Well, if things continue the way they are, Brenchal will be last.

Becky said...

I owned a 65 Ford Mustang. A silver one with a red racing stripe convertable!! Boy I loved that car. When we sold it I wouldn't even be there. The buyer wanted to know why and my husband told him I had that car longer than my youngest child.

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, do you know how to get the ads to stop popping up on Google? This is driving me nuts.

Nickelpeed said...

These blondes cannot do anything themselves. That sucks.

Nickelpeed said...

Why did you have to get rid of it, Becky. Mustangs are great.

Nickelpeed said...

Swissies or Berners?

I think Swissies

Nickelpeed said...

Wait, they have long hair, so Berners

Nickelpeed said...

Ouch, that had to have hurt.

Sharon S said...

I hope it's not a non-elim round...

Nickelpeed said...

Geesh, that looked like it didn't even bother him to pick them up. Wow.

Nickelpeed said...

I think the only ones in trouble right now are the blondes.

Becky said...

We had three children a a private university at the same time. My husband, youngest child and I lived on less money that we sent to St. Mary's University each month. But it was worth it. We have told them to not look for us to do without to leave them money. We gave them their inheritance, the college education to get a good job and make a good living for your family. Also told them that if DH and I timed it just right that we would go broke the day before we died!

lynn1 said...

I don't get the bad attitude towards the cowboys

Jackie said...

Penny - Google Adblock (free program).

Becky said...

Penny, we gave the fourth one a college education too.

lynn1 said...

The girls are my pool pick and I think they are in big touble

Jackie said...

My brother had a 65 Mustang. It was murdered by a snowplow in a Christmas Eve blizzard. I had a 78, but that doesn't really count.

Nickelpeed said...

Yes!!!! They finally got one!!! Wooohooooooo!!!!

Sharon S said...

Ahh...glad they won!

Nickelpeed said...

Sweet!!!

Nickelpeed said...

That's sad a snow plow got your brother's classic. How horrible.

lynn1 said...

well yipee

Nickelpeed said...

They are the luckiest contestants.

Nickelpeed said...

Okay. Thank you for hosting us, Jackie. See you next Sunday.

Survivor looks great this Wednesday, but I have to work in the rain. Ugh! The perils of baseball.

See everyone next week!!!

Becky said...

GREAT!!! My boys came in first and second and the blonds didn't get the boot! No netter than that.

I bet the 1914 Mustang can't be bought for $6,500! That's what I paid.

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. I made it through the show with my old dinosaur.
Good night everyone.

Becky said...

See you guys Wed. Jackie thanks for the invite.

Nickelpeed said...

Becky, I feel same way. Paid for the education, helped support you through school, that's it. LOL

Thank you Jackie. I'll look it up.

Nickelpeed said...

THAT looks like fun!!!! Heeeheee

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

Sharon S said...

Happy fresh start to the week everyone. Good luck computer shopping Lynn!

Thanks Jackie!

I know I am in the minority but I do not like Dave and Conner. I don't like how he reacted to getting U-turned. He acted like a nasty, bitter old man...not unlike how Rachel has behaved in the past. I expected him to better than that. He was very petty. It's a game, get over it. The only ones deserving are the Cowboys!
