The Amazing Race 25: December 12 Blog Party


Here we are ... the penultimate show of the season! Next week is the big finale! As the show airs here tonight, I'll do my best to update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest. As always, the real party is in the comments area. Come join us there!

Here's the latest blog pool standings from the Magnificent Margo -- the same as last week due to the non-Philimination:

Adam & Bethany - chrob61, Kathy in Brooklyn, Kelsey NY, Zoetawny
Brooke & Robbie - Caela, Sharon, Sharon N, Willie J
Maya & Amy - Ed in OH, Karen in CA, Lynn1, Margo
Misti & Jim - Cheryl in NC, Laurie, ML, OrkMommy

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
Keith & Whitney - Jean, Jennasmom, Nana in NW, PDXGranny
Shelly & Nici - Buzzmaam, Merrilee, Rbennie, SueGee
Tim & Te Jay - Babs, Brent McKee, Dusty, Monty924
Kym & Alli - Brenda, meb, Nicklepeed, Rochelle, Terry in TX

Ready to race?

They're heading to Manilla. The Speed Bump is at the Detour clue. The Detour is This or That. Bethany and Adam get there first. The Speed Bump has Brooke and Robbie helping reload a street vendor's goods. The other two teams took transportation (jeepney's?) in the wrong direction, so they're behind.

The This detour has them scoring 21 points at a basketball hoop against local guards.

Adam and Bethany are in the lead, but seem to have lost their clue. Brooke and Robbie made it to the Detour before the other two teams who finally realized they went the wrong way for an hour.

The other two teams go for That when they arrive (wrestlers did This). That has them pedaling a bike cab with a sidecar.

Gah. The wrestlers stole the lead from the surfers. Roadblock is Go Coconuts, delivering items to shops. Robbie missed some instructions as he headed out. Hopefully he'll screw up and the surfers will find the Roadblock. They know the street.

Now the surfers found their clue, Robbie figured the instructions but screwed up the amount of coconuts, Jim and Adam both missed the locations just as Robbie first did and Maya/Amy just started.

The wrestlers get through the Roadblock first.

Now, the only team left at the Roadblock is the Scientists.

Pit Stop --
1. Brooke and Robbie - Final leg starts right now and they race on, must fly to Los Angeles.
2. Adam and Bethany
3. Misti and Jim
4. Maya and Amy -- they're still in it! For the first time in TAR, four teams are going into the final leg. Phil warns them that one team will be eliminated during the final leg!

Penny

monty924 said...

Hi Jackie! I've managed two weeks in a row. Proud of myself, LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Here we go again with the numbers underneath the comments....

Nickelpeed said...

They need to fix it. Glad you can post without them, though.

Jackie said...

Kind of okay. I rested so that I can do this. I hope you're okay!

monty924 said...

Hi Penny. Yes, hope you're feeling better Jackie. The WV thing is still wonky tonight but you don't need to put it in. Odd!!

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Penny and Monty. Also to any who show up after me.

monty924 said...

Hi Becky

Becky said...

Jackie, are you feeling any better? Is Vincent doing the Happy Kitty Dance?

Nickelpeed said...

That had to have hurt. Ouch!!

monty924 said...

Misti makes the "dentists" more human... to me.

Jackie said...

Gah. Misti is one of those people who say whenever when they should say when!

Becky said...

I would love to see Adam and Bethney win.

monty924 said...

They're my favorites, Becky. She just makes me smile. Her positive attitude and how they work together is a huge plus on the race.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Jackie, Penny, Monty, & Becky!

My 1st appearance here on Fridays. I thought I better jump in the TAR pool before the season is over.

Becky said...

I hope Brooke and what's his name do not make it.

Ed in Ohio said...

Basketball! My kind of challenge!!

Nickelpeed said...

I like Adam and Bethany also, mostly because they are thankful for everything.

Speaking of using the wrong words. When I was in the military, I was a base newspaper editor. The WORST submissions were from Doctors and Lawyers. OMGosh, you couldn't read or understand what they wrote. They just didn't understand, in order for a non-medical or non-legal person to understand, they had to write down to a normal person's level. They never did that. They used wrong phrases and had very, very bad English.

Becky said...

Robbie, isn't that correct?

Nickelpeed said...

That was a fast speed bump.

Nickelpeed said...

I could not play basketball...I have a height deficiency. LOL

David said...

Hi everyone =)

I am also vertically challenged and would have a hard time with the basketball. =)

monty924 said...

UGH... I got kicked offline and that hasn't happened since the days of dial up :((

Nickelpeed said...

I do not like the wrestlers. Don't like their attitude.

Nickelpeed said...

Did they lose the clue???? Oh no!!!

monty924 said...

Hi David and Ed. I think the Dentists are lucky. They've made a lot of mistakes but they keep coming out on top.

David said...

Hope you are feeling better Jackie =)

I can't decide which team I want kicked out more in the last elimination, the wrestlers or the dentists.

Nickelpeed said...

She is so rude.

monty924 said...

And the scientist have the worst luck

Becky said...

I like that there are no "screamers at their partners" this year.

Ed in Ohio said...

Accident!
Hope they have insurance :))

My pool girls no less!

Becky said...

Hey Ed and David. Glad you could join us tonight.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Becky, Yes TAR being on Friday evenings has made it hard to watch the show live.

monty924 said...

These PEOPLE??? Never read the clue UGH

Nickelpeed said...

Why would you tell dirt poor people you are on a race for a million dollars. Sad.

Becky said...

I hope Adam and Bethany don't get eliminated.

monty924 said...

I wouldn't be upset if the wrestlers are gone after tonight.

SueGee said...

Made it!! Friday is just not a good day for this show!!!!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Ed in Ohio said...

I'm all in with either the surfers or the scientists.

Don't care for the dentists or the wrestlers :((

Nickelpeed said...

Good, go, go Adam and Bethany.

Becky said...

They wasted so much time! They should have done the searching first!

Nickelpeed said...

I hate that the wrestlers are ahead. Dang.

David said...

Hi Becky =)

I am just hanging out waiting for the show to start here. comes on here an hour later.

Nickelpeed said...

Dang it, come on people. Go back and look!!!

monty924 said...

Why wouldn't you look around for the locations where you pick up what you have to deliver? These racers aren't too bright. Must be the adrenaline!

Becky said...

Darn!!!

monty924 said...

Well the dentists still have their save, don't they? I'm worried about the scientists.

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, ingenious.

Can he do that?

SueGee said...

I think the "Save" is moot now?

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Nickelpeed said...

I'd like to see the scientists make the top 3. Come on girls!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Figures!!

My first night being able to be here and looks like my pool girls be Phil-liminated!!

David said...

Yes SueGee, your right. It was mentioned a couple of shows ago that he was taking it home as a memento now as it was not used.

monty924 said...

That's what I get for not paying attention, LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Did she say she didn't know how to drive a hand cart? She actually did pretty good.

Becky said...

Next Wed will be a very long night.

Becky said...

I hate to see the girls be eliminated.

Nickelpeed said...

Again, why would you say that to people who are dirt poor?

Nickelpeed said...

Oh no. I hope she's okay. That's not good. Come on Amy, hang in thre.

monty924 said...

Looks like the scientists will not make it

Nickelpeed said...

Some of these people are idiots. Don't like them.

monty924 said...

From last to first

Ed in Ohio said...

The cab drivers should get a tip!

Nickelpeed said...

It might just be the final four. I hope anyway.

monty924 said...

I feel bad for the candy scientists :(((

Nickelpeed said...

YES!!!!!!!

David said...

I read somewhere that the cab drivers have to be vetted and sign something. So everytime they get a new cab they probably have to stabd around waiting for that to get done before they can move on. I am sure that makes the racers anxious to get moving.

Ed in Ohio said...

Yay my girls are still in it!

Amy better hydrate!

Nickelpeed said...

This is great.

I do not like these wrestlers or the dentists.

Got to be the Surfers and the Scientists!!! GO!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Final Four next week!

monty924 said...

This first final four! Love it!!

Thanks Jackie... and now it's time to eat dinner, LOL

See you all on Wednesday for the BIG FINALE

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you so much for hosting us Jackie. Feel better soon. I know it's hard.

See everyone Wednesday for the Survivor finale and next Friday for the Amazing Race!!!

David said...

Good =) I am glad they are still racing.

Thanks Jackie. =) Continue to get better and do whatever you need to do to accomplish that goal.

Nickelpeed said...

So, Jackie, what have you been doing, aside from sleeping, being off of work?

Just take care of yourself.

Ed in Ohio said...

Good Night! Hope to see everyone Wednesday!!

@ Monty....GO BROWNS!!

Becky said...

Pardon my language but DA*MN! At least the two sweet girls are not out.

The wrestlers are the only team I do no care about.

The Dentists are a bit more likable.

Jackie, Thank you for hosting. Tell Vincent that he can have a little nip.

Jackie said...

Not much I can do, Penny. I can only be on the computer, read or watch TV for a limited time before headaches and fuzziness. I've been housecleaning, bath taking and napping a lot.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!
