The Amazing Race All-Stars: 'Hei Ho Heidi Ho' Blog Party - May 11
I hope everybody has had a nice Mother's Day! But, it's on with the show here. (And the blog party!) We're coming down the home stretch tonight. Unless it's a non-Philimination, tonight's episode will determine the final three teams running for the million dollars. I know many folks were upset with the ouster of Jet and Cord last week. However, they did mess up in addition to being U-Turned. That's the way the cookie crumbles and the race is lost.
The only team I personally don't like seeing in the final four is Jennifer and -- they've been helped way too often! I'm not all that thrilled with Brendon and Rachel, but I realize most of my "not thrilled" has to do with their many other times on shows I watch. Enough already! I'd be most happy with a Dave/Connor win, but I wouldn't mind it if Leo and Jamal won it all.
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 news! As it always is, the real party is in the comments area ... come join us as we watch the show!
The latest blog pool standings from the Magnificent Margo:
Jen & Caroline - Lynn1, Buzzmaam, DLA
Dave & Connor - Becky, Auntie Leigh, Rochelle
Brendon & Rachel (Brenchal) - Terry in TX, Brian
Leo & Jamal (Afghanimals) - Jackie, Jennamom, Merrilee
Mark & Mallory - SueGee, jonMD1627, Margo

Jessica & John - Sharon S, David, Rbennie

Cord & Jet (Cowboys) - ML, Nana in NW, Delee
The teams are headed to London, then Liverpool. They'll each have to score two soccer goals against a pro goalie to get their next clue. Leo and Jamal, soccer enthusiasts, get there first. They finish and it's on to an historic raised aqueduct for the next clue. Brenchel is through next. Dave/Connor arrive at the soccer stadium last.
Roadblock - Learn and perform a verse of traditional Welsh poetry. "Hei ho Heidi Ho." They learn it while on a boat on the aqueduct. Brendon got the difficult poem first, then the girls got it. Uh-oh ... Dave and Connor are in last place right now.
Shoot it or Boot It -- Shooting a target in the sky or booting with Wellingtons.
Now Leo and Jamal are the ones trailing.
The girls get through the clay pigeon shooting first and are the first headed to the Pit Stop. Dave and Connor are right after them. They go different directions. Someone must be wrong. Brendon and Rachel are almost through the Wellington toss. Leo and Jamal finally arrived at the Detour clue.
OH NOES! Brenchel didn't read the clue right! They have to do it over! Rachel breaks down.
Pit Stop --
1. Dave and Connor!!! Also won a trip to Fiji.
2. Caroline and Jennifer -- actually did well on their own this leg.
Brenchel finished the re-do while the cousins are still shooting. Now both teams are heading to the Pit Stop.
3. Brendon and Rachel. (Sigh.)
4. Leo and Jamal -- Philinated.
There goes my blog pool pick. Now I can give Dave and Connor my FULL support!
