The Amazing Race All-Stars: 'The Gladiators Are Here!' Blog Party - April 13
Last week the country music award show preempted TAR, this week we're competing time-wise against a big golf tournament. I do have a golf channel on my cable line-up. I've watched it never.
Amazingly, tonight's episode is only going to be delayed about twelve minutes here in the NYC viewing area. Once it starts, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh this page to get the latest! Of course, as always, the real party is in the comments area. Come watch the show with us!

Teams must fly from Sri Lanka to the "Eternal City." The Eternal City is Rome, but they need to figure that out. All the teams are on the same flight.
Detour - Gladiator or Charioteer. Done with the Coliseum in the background. The first is successfully learning gladiator moves, the second is by remote control.
Caroline and Jennifer have to complete their Speed Bump, retrieving a typewriter, finding where it goes and placing it on a pedestal. Yawn.
Brendon and Rachel are in the lead, starting off the Roadblock first. Lots of thinking, calculating, Roman numerals, etc. It's good thing Brendon is doing it, not Rachel! Brendon nailed it on the first try and they're heading to the Pit Stop. Dave and Connor are starting the Roadblock. The other teams are mainly lost.
Pit Stop --
1. Brendon and Rachel - won a trip for two to Australia's Great Barrier Reef and the Cayman Islands.
Dave/Connor are working with Caroline/Jennifer on the Roadblock.
2. Caroline and Jennifer
3. Dave and Connor (let the girls take second)
4. Jet and Cord
Leo and Jamal gave the Globetrotters and John/Jessica the answer at the Roadblock.
5. Leo and Jamal
7. Jessica/John Philiminated after losing the foot race to the Pit Stop.
Next week teams will face a Double U-Turn. Eep.
