The Amazing Race 25 Blog Party - October 10, 2014


So ... how are you guys liking the new Friday night time slot for this season? I'm still having to remind myself it's on tonight. But, I'll get used to it! It's so much better than playing the waiting game due to sports delays on Sundays!

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 you all know, the real party is in the comments area. Come join in on the fun!

The latest standings on the blog pool from the Marvelous Margo:

Adam & Bethany - chrob61, Kathy in Brooklyn, Kelsey NY, Zoetawny
Brooke & Robbie - Caela, Sharon, Sharon N, Willie J
Keith & Whitney - Jean, Jennasmom, Nana in NW, PDXGranny
Kym & Alli - Brenda, meb, Nicklepeed, Rochelle, Terry in TX
Maya & Amy - Ed in OH, Karen in CA, Lynn1, Margo
Michael & Scott - Donna in FL, Glenn, Jackie, Marlo
Misti & Jim - Cheryl in NC, Laurie, ML, OrkMommy
Shelly & Nici - Buzzmaam, Merrilee, Rbennie, SueGee

Sorry you have been PHILIMINATED
Lisa & Michelle - Becky, Delee, dla, Donna in AL
Dennis & Isabelle - Auntie Leigh, Brian, David, Donna NY, sanra

Ready to race from our comfy chairs?

Nine teams will be heading from Oxford, England via train, driving and a ferry to the Shetland Islands. That's Shetland like ponies! Yikes! Michael fell and hurt his ankle. There's a six-hour wait for the train. Kim and Alli decided to find a pub.

Once on the island, they have to find a puppet to get their next clue. They're off to Scallaway (sp?) castle for a Detour.

Detour: Pony Up has them cutting peat, working with a Shetland pony, deliver it. Light My Fire has them building a Viking Torch. 

Sigh. Misti and Jim are first to move on after dealing with their possessed pony. Brooke and Robbie are having lots of trouble with the torch building. They're currently in last place. Tim and Te Jay get through the torch detour first.

Roadblock: Get Your Sheep Together. They're herding sheep. The sheep herding is hilarious. They hop! And run well, too.

Misti and Jim make it through the sheep first and get the clue to the Pit Stop.

Pit Stop --
1. Jim and Misti (I don't like him.) They won a trip to Dubai
2. Adam and Bethany (I like them!)
3. Keith and Whitney
4. Shelley and Nici
5. Kym and Alli
6. Brooke and Robbie
7. Maya and Amy
8. Tim and Te Jay
9. Michael and Scott

Philiminated. Sigh. I liked them and they were my blog pool pick. However, they're not in great shape and now the one really wrecked up his ankle. I don't think they would have had many legs left in them anyway.

Hey, Jackie and Vincent.

Becky said...

I may not be here long. I picked up a bug a few days ago and still feel like the bottom of a bird cage.

Jackie said...

Hey, there. Becky .. and thank you!
I hope you feel better. I caught a bug last week myself.

Becky said...

I had hoped it was food poison, but since it is still bad I guess it is a bug.

My kids are supposed to come tomorrow but I will call them in the morning if I don't feel A LOT better.

Jackie said...

Where is everyone? EEK!

Becky said...

She is amazing. I do not care for Mr. White Teeth for some reason.

Jackie said...

I admired her before she was on the show. He seems to be someone I wouldn't want to know. Full of himself.

Becky said...

(sniff, sniff) I promise not to breathe on anyone!

Jackie said...

I wonder where everyone is tonight?

Jackie said...

I know Penny had a party she had to go to.

Becky said...

I'm surprised that Monty and Petals are not here.

Jackie said...

I don't think Petals watches TAR.

Becky said...

Shetlands can be very mean!

David said...

Hiya's. =)

Dropping by to see what is happening. =) Get better soon Becky.

Everyone got lost today it seems. I still haven't figured out who to root for since you kicked me out of the pool last week. Still only know about half the teams.

SueGee said...

Well I forgot but I'm here! Anyone else? Jackie & Vincent?

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Becky said...

I'm not crazy about the wrestlers either.

However I don't dislike anyone -- after my team was eliminated!

Jackie said...

Shetland ponies are cute, though!

Hey, David!

Becky said...

Hey David and SueGee.

SueGee said...

I was waiting until it was show time and boom I looked up and it was almost an hour later!!

SueGee

Becky said...

Thanks for the get well wishes. Tomorrow is my BD and I would like to celebrate it. I haven't seen Momma in three days.

Jackie said...

And SueGee! Now we have a party going!

I personally would like to see Bethany and Adam do well. Not only do I admire her for handling the shark bite/arm loss so well, they do seem quite nice. I like the firefighter, my blog pool team, but they are out of shape and now the one has a really bad ankle.

SueGee said...

Been a really stress filled week. My granddaughter is in the hospital up at the Mayo Clinic and they are trying to work some magic.

SueGee

Becky said...

Jackie, have you seen the Dear Kitten video?

Becky said...

SueGee, I am so sorry to hear about your granddaughter. I sent up a prayer that they work that magic.

Becky said...

Jackie, I like Bethany and partner and the firemen too. They are out of shape.

David said...

Happy early Birthday Becky !!!!!!

I would not mind seeing the wrestlers eliminated. I do hope the firefighters go far. The Dentists seem so full of themselves I just can not like them.

Becky said...

Wonder if this is a non-elim round.

Easy herding sheep? LOLOLOL The only thing harder is herding cats!

SueGee said...

Happy Birthday Becky! My Momma's was the 12th.

We will have to have some cake and ice cream on Sunday!

SueGee

Becky said...

I like the Mom/daughter team too.

David said...

Utopia Death watch. In case no one knew, and by the ratings I would say no one knows, it is on at the same time as TAR. I have seen people taking bets on how much longer that show will be on the air. LMAO
I tried but just can not get into it. There is no one to like on that show.

SueGee said...

They sure are giving away "different" trips this season! Dubai?

SueGee said...

I have been DVRing Utopia and have tried to like it. I'm interested but its no Big Brother for sure!

SueGee said...

I was looking around for someone paying for their (utopia) feeds and blogging it (ala Jackie) but haven't found it yet.

Becky said...

The firemen have had more problems than I remember any other team having.

Jackie said...

Becky - Happy birthday tomorrow and I've seen a few of the Dear Kitten videos. Are you talking about the one introducing the dog?

Jackie said...

I watched a bit of the feeds for Utopia, decided I liked the wildlife better than the people.

Jackie said...

Sue - I know that Hamsterwatch on her Neone twitter ID was tweeting a lot about Utopia last month. I haven't really had the time to get involved after my BB recovery.

~~Silk said...

Hi. I'm here, just doing stuff during commercials.

David said...

SueGee, Jokers has a feeds updates for utopia on their site. But they are sporadic and no one seems to really care. They seem to just post the major happenings.

Becky said...

Jackie, yes. Someone sent it to me yesterday. Saw on the the news tonight it has gone viral.

SueGee said...

Utopia gets too deeply into money and politics - big FAIL causes too many fights and lots of yelling.



Becky said...

Darn!

David said...

I was watching the Utopia feeds in the mornings but they cut off the free feeds now after 10 minutes a day so that was the end of that.

Becky said...

Thanks, Jackie. I will see you on Survivor..... well, after Sunday pictures.

Jackie said...

There goes my blog pool team. Now I'll be for Bethany and Adam!

Kathy said...

Hi everyone, better late then never

SueGee said...

Hope to see you all Sunday!!

David said...

Dang. Too bad for them. The preview did show that ankle and it looked bad.

Thanks Jackie =) Time to see it for myself now.

Kathy said...

I need someone to remind me of the day change for the Amazing Race.

Jackie said...

Gah. I won't even try to get into Utopia if they're fighting about politics now. I have too much politics in my FB newsfeed already.

Jackie said...

Hey, Kathy! It's Friday at 8pm ET!

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!
