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!

Here's the latest on the blog pool run by that Very Magnificent 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
Misti & Jim - Cheryl in NC, Laurie, ML, OrkMommy
Shelly & Nici - Buzzmaam, Merrilee, Rbennie, SueGee
Tim & Te Jay - Babs, Brent McKee, Dusty, Monty924,

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

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!

Hey Jackie! I set the alarm on my phone so I wouldn't forget tonight. :)))

lynn1 said...

Hi Jackie & Monty I finally had a free Friday night so I can come to the pool party! YAY

monty924 said...

Hi Lynn

monty924 said...

I felt horrible for the firemen last week. What a way to go out. :((

lynn1 said...

I really don't like having TAR on Friday nights

lynn1 said...

I usually have other plans and end up watching the show ON Demand when I have free time. I really miss being able to hang out at Jackie's pool parties

monty924 said...

I like not having to figure out how to get it all taped when football ran over. I always had to tape it on Sundays but half the time I didn't remember to tape the how or two afterwards so I'd miss most of the show.

lynn1 said...

Misti really looks ready for the red carpet with all the eye make up

Nickelpeed said...

~~~~SPLASH~~~~ Hi every one!!!

Thank you Jackie. Appreciate your time and love for these reality shows!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

My life is so boring, having it on Friday nights does not bother me. :-(

Nickelpeed said...

So, how are they going to get flights?

monty924 said...

Grrrr. Didn't like that

monty924 said...

Hi Penny

Nickelpeed said...

I would love to see the dentists realize they may have made a mistake.

monty924 said...

Seems like going to the airport should have just been a no brainer

Nickelpeed said...

What didn't you like Monty?

lynn1 said...

Hi Penny

Nickelpeed said...

YAYAY, my guys are in first place. GO GIRLS!!

monty924 said...

Thought they parked in a handicapped spot, but maybe not.

Nickelpeed said...

WOW!

Oops, Hi Monty!

Nickelpeed said...

Man, those patries look great.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and everyone, I had to go pick up pizzas. I have several different kinds so dig in.

lynn1 said...

In Denmark the breakfast pastries aren't called Danish. They are called vienna pastries.

monty924 said...

Hi Becky. Pizza sounds yummy!

Nickelpeed said...

Becky said...

Momma and daughter are tiffing. Bad break for the bikers.

monty924 said...

All that and they can't find the receipt.

Nickelpeed said...

LOL, I just realized I spelled pastries wrong!

Becky, that pizza sounds so good!!!

Looks like my girls are in trouble. Hope they find the receipt.

Jackie said...

I like the predictability that the show will start on time with the Friday slot. And, I'll admit -- my life is kind of boring, so Friday nights I'm usually home. I have to work Saturdays.

Becky said...

Penny, my life is boring too, so I prefer Friday night rather than having to wait for football to be over.

My social life right now consists of the nursing home and doctor's apppointments.

monty924 said...

Whew! Lucky break

Nickelpeed said...

I just do not like that dentist.

David said...

Hi everyone, =) yummy pizza, mmmm

I won't tell you what I thought that misspelled word said penny while speed reading through the comments. LOL Thought it sounded a bit strange.

Becky said...

I don't really care for Mr. Teeth.

lynn1 said...

Fridays usually are our date night.

Nickelpeed said...

LOL @ David

Nickelpeed said...

I used to be a waitress and that sounds hard to me!!!


She needs to write it down!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Poor Bethany

Nickelpeed said...

Can't she write it on her hand?

monty924 said...

These tasks when you have to recreate something are always difficult

SueGee said...

I think I'm going to have to use Monty's idea and set a reminder. Now where did I leave my phone!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Becky said...

The dentist is so full of himself!

Nickelpeed said...

YAYAYAY Kym and Ali

Becky said...

Is this a non-elim round?

lynn1 said...

I know I am being catty but it makes me happy to see the perfect couple having a little trouble

Becky said...

The bikers were smart to take some of the icing with them.

Becky said...

That should chap Mr. Teeth.

Nickelpeed said...

I would say it couldn't happen to better people, but Bethany and Adam are still there.

lynn1 said...

Maybe we will see the dentist gnash his teeth! LOL

Jackie said...

Becky - I think we're due for a non-Philim. If not this week, next week for sure.

Jackie said...

Maybe the dentists will be forced to give up their Save to stay in tonight. I'd like to see that gone.

Becky said...

I work as a waitress in a drug store (yes, I was a soda jerk)my last two years of high school.. That job made me determined to finish high school.

Nickelpeed said...

Love those dogs!!!


Yayay....GO GIRLS!!!

Nickelpeed said...

look at the flower pot and spade....look closely!!!

monty924 said...

I don't think any of us like the dentists much. He's too cocky for me. Blech

Nickelpeed said...

He says that now....lol

monty924 said...

Haha, way freaking easy. Famous last words.

Nickelpeed said...

This guy is funny.

David said...

I think I will throw in with you Jackie on supporting Bethany and Adam since I was kicked out of the pool a couple of weeks ago.

For some reason the dentists having problems makes me smile. Just can't figure out why. =))

monty924 said...

yay, Tim and Te Jay

Nickelpeed said...

Phew!! Go surfers!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

They are missing a flag

Nickelpeed said...

Wipe that smug look off his face! YES!

monty924 said...

LOL this is getting cruel. Looks like they'll be using their save. Hehehe

lynn1 said...

It is very entertaining to see the big shot fizzle out

Nickelpeed said...

My pool pick are Kym and ALi; but I do like Adam and Bethany. I hope they do well.

Jackie said...

I even like the wrestlers a bit better this week. He was funny in the wait(ress) task.

Nickelpeed said...

Do you think the dentists will use their save? They would have to if they are going to make it, I woudl think. However, if it's a non-elim, they will waste the save.

monty924 said...

I like the wrestlers and the scientists tonight

David said...

I would guess that using the save makes it an automatic non-elimination leg. No way they would kick out the team that finished before them.

lynn1 said...

I hope they use it and the find out it was a non elimination leg of the race

Becky said...

Jackie, I found the wrestlers more likable this week.

Nickelpeed said...

I hope the dentists think they're smarter and safer and they lose with the save.

monty924 said...

Come on guys!

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Bethany!!! Go!

Nickelpeed said...

YES!!! YES!!!

Nickelpeed said...

They will be so stupid to not use the save.

Gorgeous dog!!!

Becky said...

Good. I like Adam and Betheny too.

Nickelpeed said...

This is too darn funny. I hope they don't use the save and it's a elimination. Again, I shouldn't say that because I don't want the other 2 pairs to get in last.

monty924 said...

The dogs are the stars tonight

Nickelpeed said...

They made it!!!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

DANG IT ALL!!!

monty924 said...

Crap

lynn1 said...

Darn

Nickelpeed said...

Well, what's bad is they say they are humbled, but they will be the first ones to U turn someone.

Becky said...

Darn, I wish they had to use the save. I guess the save means you don't have to play it unless you are last? Is that correct?

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. I doubt I will be able to be here next week. I have to go to a birthday party (my own)

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting us. See you next week.

Jackie said...

Becky - It can only be played to save them from being eliminated.

monty924 said...

Happy early birthday Lynn! Thanks Jackie... see everyone on Wednesday for Survivor switch up!

Nickelpeed said...

:::SIGH:::

I won't be here next Wednesday or Friday, since I work both nights. I'm bummed. But, I'll be here in heart.

Thank you, Jackie. I appreciate it.

Wow, things get nasty next week!!

Becky said...

Thanks, Jackie. That's why they didn't use it.

Becky said...

Night everyone.

David said...

Dang it. He should not have given the pass back.

Thanks Jackie. =)

Happy early birthday Lynn !!!!

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

Nickelpeed said...

Early Happy Birthday Lynn!!

Does anybody know the breed the dogs were?

Anonymous said...

We want to know the breed of dog also!

Anonymous said...

The dogs were Denmark Broholmers, a dog that resembles a mastiff.

Anonymous said...

Not a Great Dane?

Anonymous said...

I'm not an expert on this breed, but it makes sense that this would be a breed that would represent Denmark. This description from Wikipedia sounded pretty dead-on, but I'm not claiming absolutely surety... Smile
- The Broholmer, also called the Danish Mastiff, is a large molosser breed of dog from Denmark, recognized by the Danish Kennel Club and the F\'e9d\'e9ration Cynologique Internationale. It has been employed as a guard dog in the homes of the wealthy. The breed's numbers dwindled severely during WWII, but the dog made a successful return in the 1970's -
Check the website for a description.....
