The Amazing Race 25: October 24 Blog Party


Please, please, please ... go away dentists! Well, him more than her. I only wish last week hadn't been a non-Philimination leg and, at the very least, they would have used up that Save they hold!

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 always, the real party is in the comments area. Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun!

Ready to race?

Starting out in Copenhagen, the teams are off to Morocco. They'll have to search a marketplace in Marrakesh to find the next clue.

The other teams aren't happy to know that Misti and Jim still have their save. Nor am I.

It's a bunching as all make their way to Morocco. Nici negotiated with their cabbie for a flat fare to wait (and keep their luggage in the car).

They have to "Cart it Out" and help set up a restaurant food cart in the marketplace. Jim and Misti's speed bump has them hanging rug-like banners for markets. And, mind you, U-Turn ahead.

Keith and Whitney are the first done with the task. More teams are finishing and Misti/Jim just got to the marketplace task.

The next clue is in the tannery, Roadblock. Keith and Whitney are having trouble finding it. Uh-oh! Ew -- they have to finish preparing three hides by pulling the hair off and then delivering them. Jim and Misti are twelves minutes behind the last of the other teams. Good.

It sounds like feathers are getting ruffled between the Dentists and Shelly/Nici as both teams are in the tanning. The dentists finish first. Oy!

All the teans bunch up trying to deliver the skins. Pushing! Now Nici/Shelly are squabbling with Keith.

Detour - Twirl Time has them spinning a tassel on their heads and playing trance music. The Tea Time has them presenting tea in a very complicated task.

Cool! Bethany and Adam are done first! They did the tea Detour. Kym and Alli did the music task and are in second place. Misti keeps using two hands to hold the tea tray and fail. Of course, Bethany could only use one. Neither Kym/Alli (now leading) or Bethany/Adam U-Turn anyway.

Pit Stop --
1. Kym and Alli - also won $5,000 each
2. Bethany and Adam

Shelly/Nici U-Turned Keith and Whitney. Grr. Dentists, I say!

3. Tim and Te Jay
4. Shelly and Nici
5. Misti and Jim
6. Brooke and Robbie
7. Maya and Amy
8. Keith and Whitney -- Philiminated

They would have also been Philiminated even without the U-Turn. They did that badly.

Hey Jackie and Vincent! Also anyone else who arrives -- hey!

Becky said...

Our cable went out Wednesday. Our computer, telephone and TV are all bundled so we lost everything for the night.

Becky said...

Jackie, looks like thee and me -- again!

Jackie said...

I'm here. I've been updating and Vincent has bad timing deciding to climb on me!

Jackie said...

Monty said she was going out tonight. I swear people are forgetting Friday nights!

Joe in NY said...

Hi Folks

Joe in NY said...

Friday nights can't be a good move for TAR after all those years on Sunday.

Becky said...

Hey, Joe! Glad to see your smiling face.

~~Silk said...

If that's the tannery with all the colorful clay vats out back, I've been there. It's amazing. (It also stinks.) I bought two jackets, tailored to me.

Becky said...

Hey, Silk. We are going to have a party yet.

Jackie said...

Hey Joe and Silk. I just can't think of Marrakesh without the old Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young song in my head.

Becky said...

The speed bump this year looks harder than in the past few years.

Becky said...

Silk, there is your tannery.

Becky said...

What a jerk. He is what I would call an ugly American!

David said...

Hi everyone. =)

Kist lurking waiting for show to come on here. I guess the world series is having an effect on were people are. I personally just can't get into it. =)

Joe in NY said...

Is there no way for her to wear a prosthetic? It seems pretty high on the arm, but you'd think they'd be able to put something there that would be somewhat useful.

David said...

Just*, guess I should look at what I typed before hitting enter. =)

Becky said...

This show can bring the ugly out in people.

Joe in NY said...

No one outside of KC (Jodie) and SF is really into the World Series. There ratings are generally lower than TAR. I think Fridays are just hard for people.

Becky said...

Hey, David. Glad you can join us for the chat.

Jackie said...

She seems to do amazingly well without a prosthetic.

Joe in NY said...

It's one thing to argue with him about position in line, but you cross a line when you start physically shoving him. She's lucky there's a double-standard when it comes to violence. If he had pushed her people would be screaming for an automatic eviction.

Jackie said...

Without East Coast teams in the World Series, I would be clueless if not for Jodie.

Joe in NY said...

Jackie, I agree. I'm not saying she NEEDS a prosthetic. But even for things like balance, it is useful to have a counterweight. Without a shoulder socket, I don't know how much actual utility you can get from the prosthetic, but they get better all the time.

Becky said...

I agree, Jackie. She is amazing.

Joe in NY said...

/Their ratings...

I hate when I do that!

~~Silk said...

I'm disappointed they didn't show the shop at the tannery. They have the most amazing and beautiful stuff there.

I'm also amazed that the racers are able to find their way around the medina. I have an excellent sense of direction, but man, there's no rhyme or reason to the alleys there and it's so easy to get lost. Not just finding a shop - you can go crazy trying to find your way OUT!

David said...

I don't get why, even if the world series is not why, the other channels mostly show repeats and don't even give anyone not interested something else to watch usually. The same when the awards shows are on, no one even tries to show anything.

Glad we got TAR on to watch and might check out Constantine tonight to see if it is any good.

Becky said...

I couldn't do the tassel thing.

Joe in NY said...

I don't know, David, the networks all seem to be showing new content this week. ABC, CBS and NBC all have full slates of new shoes tonight, including the Premiere of Grimm.

When I was a kid, they used to do special programming around the World Series. But baseball has lost so much popularity, no one is afraid of it any more.

Becky said...

Heck I couldn't do this show or Survivor and for sure not Big Brother.

Becky said...

I would have whip lash!

SueGee said...

Howdy everyone!! Sorry had the World Series on and forgot about your early start!

SueGee

David said...

U-turn those dentists.!! =))

Uggg, I have to go to the dentist next week. Popped out a filling. Glad it doesn't hurt but have to get it re-filled before it does.

Becky said...

If I knew there were several teams behind me I would not
U-Turn anyone. That is asking for someone to target you later.

SueGee said...

World Series is on FOX this year so not much of a channel scramble. Looks like they are doing away with the Thursday night football on CBS so Thursday night shows are being re-assembled. Friday night is horrible for TAR IMHO

SueGee on the LeftCoast (Go Giants!)

Jackie said...

If these shows had been around when I was much younger, I would have loved to apply for Survivor or TAR. No way on Big Brother!

SueGee said...

I'm in total agreement with you Jackie. I could have had a ball on Survivor when I was younger - but knowing someone that was on (twice) helped with my yearnings...

SueGee

Jackie said...

Did you guys know that one of our younger blog followers here has been planning to apply for Survivor as soon as he's old enough? I actually think he'd be great. I'm FB friends with him and his mother and he's adventurous!

David said...

Cool Jackie, hope he makes it on.

I am too old also to do any of these shows. Also very out of shape. =)

SueGee said...

That's pretty neat about waiting to be old enough. I love these super fans!!

SueGee

~~Silk said...

Somewhere in the world there is a carpet from that shop with three knots tied by me!

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting. I will see all of you next week.

David said...

Thanks Jackie. =)

Ready for it to start here now.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

Nickelpeed said...

That made me mad the mother and daughter u-turned Whitney and Keith. It will come back on them. Horrible.

Nickelpeed said...

Darn it. I'm sad they were last. Oh well. U-turn didn't matter.
