The Amazing Race All-Stars: 'Donkeylicious' Blog Party - April 20


Sure, it's the Easter holiday evening and many people may be partaking in family or church doings and the show is actually starting on time tonight. Go figure.

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest! I'm not sure how well attended tonight's party will be due to the holiday, but please join us in the comments section for some good times!

The latest blog pool standings from the Magnificent Margo are as follows:

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
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

Let's RACE! Teams are driving to find their next clue. Jennifer/Caroline and Dave/Connor are working together. Brenchal, since winning the last leg, are in the lead. This is the last chance for Jet and Cord to use their Express Pass. And, of course, there is a double U-Turn ahead.

Detour: Donkey Run has the teams in a donkey race. Donkey Build has the teams building a donkey out of wood and delivering it. Brenchal finishes, still in the lead.

Gah, Brendan wants to U-Turn Dave and Connor! Rachel wanted to do the cowboys. Brendan won. Gah. Dave/Connor said they needed to U-Turn someone. They let the cowboys survive and U=Turned the Afghanimals. They told them and apologized.

Roadblock: Who's got the write stuff? The team member has to copy old style writings perfectly.

While the two teams U-Turned have their own problems, it's the Globetrotters who seem hopelessly lost right now.

Heh. The Globetrotters are finally at the Detour. Big Easy is almost crushing his donkey! They have to switch detours. They're still running in last place.

Sigh. Brenchal is on the way to the Pit Stop. The Globetrotters finally finished the Detour after switching back to riding the donkeys.

The Pit Stop --
1. Brendan and Rachel - won $7,500 each.

Eek! Connor doesn't think he can finish the Roadblock and wants to take a penalty! No, don't do it, Connor! Wow! The Afghanimals helped Dave and Connor!

2. Jet and Cord
3. Leo and Jamal
4. Dave and Connor
5. Jennifer and Caroline
6. Flight Time and Big Easy -- Philiminated

Nickelpeed said...

Happy Easter, everyone! Hi Jackie, thank you for hosting us. Hi Monty!

monty924 said...

Hi Penny. I don't usually make it to the blog on Sundays but the bowling league is over for this season so here I am. Pretty tired after today so will probably just lurk. :)))

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Monty, Penny and others who arrive.

Jackie said...

Happy Easter!

Becky said...

Monty, I am exhausted too. Will join you in the lurk float.

SueGee said...

Hoppy Easter everyone!! My Ham is still in the oven, with some cheesy potatoes & fresh green peas. I'm getting hungry!! I do think I will have a deviled egg tho...Thanks Monty!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Sharon S said...

Hi everyone. Happy Easter evening.

Nickelpeed said...

They couldn't get anything done without someone helping them. And, I think they would stab the father and son in the back in the second!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky!!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Sue Gee.

I wish the father wouldn't worry about the girls, they wouldn't be able to done anything even if it were printed out. LOL Like it is.

monty924 said...

Hi Becky and Sharon. SueGee, you dinner sounds yummy. I'm so stuffed from ours, I couldn't eat another bite.

SueGee said...

So what are the rules around the express pass? I can't remember...Can they only skip one thing? Do they have to use it before they would get turned?

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks.

Happy Easter!

Joe in NY said...

Why do people think that other teams should want to help them?

Nickelpeed said...

I hope nobody U-turns anyone. Darn it. I hate U-turns

Becky said...

Happy, blessed Easter.

Nickelpeed said...

I agree Joe. I don't know why anyone things someone should help them.

Uh, oh...my Globetrotters are in trouble.

Crap, Darn Brendon. Why use a U-turn.

monty924 said...

Hi Joe!

Becky said...

NO, No, NO!!! Not Dave and Connor. Okay, Brachel is dead meat as far as I am concerned. Dead rat meat.

Nickelpeed said...

I agree. Why would you U-Turn a 60 year old man. :-(

Becky said...

I hope Dave and Connor don't u turn the cowboys.

Nickelpeed said...

Becky, Rachel did not want to U-turn anyone. Brendon did it.

Jackie said...

My old buddy, Jym Bus (really), came up with the U-Turn back when he was the challenge production producer on the show.

Jackie said...

Actually, Jym Buss. Oops.

Joe in NY said...

Kind of funny that they complained about Brenchel U-turning them but didn't hesitate to U-turn Leo & Jamal

Joe in NY said...

While I don't mind the U-turn, I think it is short-sighted to use the U-turn to try and win a single leg. It just puts a bull's eye on your back for the rest of the race. If you are in the middle of the pack, it is kind of dumb NOT to use it.

Nickelpeed said...

My guys are in trouble. :-(

Nickelpeed said...

I think it was silly to U-turn the father and son. Dave is not fast. They should have U-turned the faster ones or not at all. Darn.

Nickelpeed said...

Do they really think the brothers will help them?

The two blondes are not smart at all. They would not be able to spell cat even if spotted the c and t.

Joe in NY said...

OK, so why U-turn them and then help them? WTF?

Joe in NY said...

Not really taking the high road there, Dave and Connor. Hate Brenchel for U-turning you, but U-turn someone else. Then, show your sportsmanship and class by calling Rachel ugly.

Nickelpeed said...

These poor donkey's are probably tired after a long day.

Man, my Globetrotters are in trouble. :-(

Nickelpeed said...

I feel sorry for the Globetrotters, they have nobody to help them. Dang.

Come on Dave and Connor, really??? Just move on.

Merrilee said...

Read your clue!!!!!

Blog Pool winner of The Amazing Race Season 22

Joe in NY said...

I hate those subjective evaluations. Was Rachel's really off?

Nickelpeed said...

Nooooooo, guys. You were almost done!!!

Joe in NY said...

They talk about 60 like it's dead.

Nickelpeed said...

My pool picks will be last. I am so sad. :-(

Nickelpeed said...

I know Joe, isn't that funny.

Nickelpeed said...

I do not mind the two blondes, but they can not do anything on their own.

Joe in NY said...

If Dave goes home, it's his own damn fault. He U-turns Jamal, which makes sense once he got U-turned, but they he helps the blonds and helps Jamal and they are both going to be ahead of him.

Nickelpeed said...

Just do it, just quit complaining.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, that is nice of the brothers.

SueGee said...

This is the last week you want to be helping anyone. After this week, blood rules LOL

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, these girls get me...a lot!!!

They're lost...again????

Nickelpeed said...

I'm sad for the Globetrotters. :-(
Crap.

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it. They work hard and the blondes get everyone to help them. I'm sad.

monty924 said...

So bummed for them. Of all the years and seasons I've watched, they've always been favorites of mine. Good race guys :(((

Sharon S said...

Awww....I'm going to miss them.

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, thank you so much for hosting us. Really appreciate it.

Will be here Wednesday!!!!

Becky said...

I am sorry to see the G.T.go. But they have made good money and some of the others need it more.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

monty924 said...

Thanks Jackie for a cool place to hang on a Sunday night! See you all on Wednesday...

Becky said...

Thanks for having us, Jackie
