The Amazing Race 25 Blog Party - October 17
Ah, I'm a free agent in the blog pool as my team, the firemen, were Philiminated last week. I'm leaning towards throwing my support to Bethany and Adam mainly because (1) they seem nice and don't bicker and (2) I just admire her so much for dealing with the loss of her arm and not letting that stop her from not only living a regular life, but excelling in physical challenges.
As the 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! You all know where the real party is -- I hope to see you in the comments area!

Ready to race party?
Huh. They slept in tents on the Shetland Islands Pit Stop. They now have to take a ferry and head to Denmark on a plane. Although the ferry is a bunching point, they're taking three different flights. Kim and Alli are in the lead. Beat those dentists, girls! The car will punish them if they don't drive energy efficiently. The punishment? A quiz!
Detour -- Parking Space, living room or garden setting for a streetscape resting place. The other task is a wedding cake run -- finishing a wedding cake and delivering it on a cargo bike.
Good. The dentists didn't drive efficiently.
Roadblock: Who has a good memory for faces? They have to take orders from dining patrons and memorize the dishes ordered.
Kym and Alli are in the lead and now have the clue to the Pit Stop! Meanwhile, the dentists have to redo their parking space.
Pit Stop -
1. Kym and Alli -- each won a new hybrid Ford
Heh. The dentists switched detour tasks and now are having problems with the cake!
2. Brooke and Robbie
3. Keith and Whitney
4. Maya and Amy
5. Tim and Te Jay
Now the dentists are having trouble in the waiter task.
6. Shelly and Nici
7. Adam and Bethany
8. Misti and Jim
Rats. They gave Phil the save, but it's a non-Philimination leg so Phil gave it back.
Next week will have them facing a Double U-Turn and Marrakesh!
