The Amazing Race 25: December 5 Blog Party


Wow, time is flying this season! We're down to the final four. As the show airs here, I'll do my best to update this entry with the major happenings. My mind is still on the fuzzy side, but I'll do my best. 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:

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

Since there are two more episodes after tonight to air, I predict a non-Philimination leg. What do you think?

Are you ready? Let's GO!

Teams are flying from Singapore to Manilla, the Philippines.

Ah, good. The dentists are on a different flight, getting in a little later than the others. That might not mean much as they could catch up, but ...!

It won't mean much. They all have to wait for a flower vendor at 6:30am.

Detour - Catch or Coach. Filling three buckets of fish or mounting a sidecar to a bike. Maya and Amy are behind because they didn't follow a clue and lost time. Robbie is freaking out about handling fish.

Brooke and Robbie, the only ones doing the fish, finish first and head off for the next clue. Then Bethany and Adam finish the bike first.

Yay! It's the "I broke my ox" challenge. They have to use a water oxen to find a clue in a huge mud field.

Jim and Misti find the clue in the mud first, then the scientists. It's off to the Pit Stop on foot.

1. Jim and Misti - won a trip to Vietnam
2. Maya and Amy

The wrestlers and surfers were almost simultaneous in finding the clue.

3. Bethany and Adam
4. Brooke and Robbie.

I was right. It was a non-Philimination. All teams still in.

Hi Joe

Nickelpeed said...

SPLASH~~~ Hi everyone! Thank you for hosting Jackie!!!!

The only ones I really like who are left are Bethany, Adam and Amy and Maya.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Joe and Monty. How are you feeling, Jackie? Any better?

Jackie said...

Hi! I'm looking forward to reliving the "you broke my ox" challenge tonight.

monty924 said...

I loved that challenge, LOL

Becky said...

Hey, Penny! I agree with you.

monty924 said...

Hey Penny and Becky

Jackie said...

Becky - The two hour Survivor the other night about killed me. But, other than that, eh. It dawned on me that I did have a concussion back when I was 9. Maybe that's why this one is messing me up so much.

monty924 said...

I've softened to the Dentists, but the "husband" still irks me. I like her.

monty924 said...

I happy that Bethany and Adam are thinking about this more on this leg.

lynn1 said...

Hi everyone.. I finally get to join you on a Friday night! Yay

monty924 said...

I love the #SweetScientists

monty924 said...

Don't believe them!!!

David said...

Hi everyone =)

2 more shows after tonight? Your probably right Jackie, a non-Philimination leg. I seem to remember the finale show being 2 hours long when first started. I know it was only a hour show last year. If this is not a non-elimination leg then they will split the final leg into two parts.

monty924 said...

Hi Lynn and David. I've missed a bunch of blog parties for TAR myself.

Nickelpeed said...

I think that is so unfair sometimes. It puts every one on equal grounds again. Early bird gets the worm!!!

I do not want the Wrestlers in first. Don't like them.

Jackie said...

I like the excitement of the scientists. If Adam and Bethany don't win, I'd love them to win!

Becky said...

Jackie, I was knocked off Wed before I could tell you thank you for hosting. So I want to thank you now for hosting us then and tonight.

I am not as much against the dentists as I did.

Nickelpeed said...

After how wicked that massage was last time, the Scientist need something better for them. That looked so excruciating. And, then the workers laughed. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

The poverty there is horrible. It makes you want to cry.

Yeah, the dentists are softening.

monty924 said...

Read the clue!!!

Kathy said...

Good evening everyone

David said...

Penny, sorry, but I would have laughed at them getting the "massage" myself if I was there. I did laugh at them from here. =)

Hi Kathy =)

Joe in NY said...

At least they caught on before they got an hour penalty.

Nickelpeed said...

Why would they do that challenge? The water looks filthy. Yuck.

monty924 said...

Hi Kathy. That is a nasty challenge for someone who can't handle smells. I would have done the other one too.

Nickelpeed said...

What did he expect? They are FISH!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, the water does look gross. Who knows what died in it. Yuck.

Nickelpeed said...

Yikes. That storm looks horrible.

monty924 said...

The wrestlers are going to come out on top of this.

Nickelpeed said...

Shut, didn't want them first. Rats

Becky said...

I DO NOT LIKE them!

Nickelpeed said...

Yes!!!!

Anonymous said...

Hi all. Just looking at that body of water would completely turn me off from that challenge.

Nickelpeed said...

I meant...Shoot, I do not want them first....wrestlers....NOOOO

monty924 said...

The Dentists still have the save, don't they?

lynn1 said...

If the scientist bebat the dentists at this challenge he will have a fit

lynn1 said...

I meant beat

David said...

I think Phil said that they could not use the save anymore at the end of the last show. Something about he was going to take it home as a memento.

Kathy said...

Mr. Dentist is such a know it all. Mrs. Dentist has seemed much more likeable lately.

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh, this is filthy and hard. Yuck.

Nickelpeed said...

And they have to walk in that. How funny. I wonder what kind of parasits they all got.

Nickelpeed said...

They have such a good attitude. But, yuck again.

Kathy said...

The movie about Betheny's experience was really good. She appeared at the end of it. Has anyone seen it?

Becky said...

The old ox job.

monty924 said...

This is hilarious :)))

Becky said...

Kathy, I have not seen it. PENNY, check your mail.

David said...

I haven't Kathy

I want to see some of that ox mud on those dentists pearly whites. =)

Jackie said...

I haven't seen the movie, Kathy. But I certainly remember when it happened to her!

lynn1 said...

I think I would rather eat bugs than work in all that mud and poop

monty924 said...

Same here, Kathy. I'll have to look for it. I remember her story when that happened. I think she's amazing.

monty924 said...

And the Dentists find it first, LOL. Go figure

lynn1 said...

They are so darn lucky

Kathy said...

Monty, I feel the same way about her. Ever since I watched that movie and learned about her determination to surf again she is awe inspiring.

monty924 said...

Go Scientists

Nickelpeed said...

I have seen the movie, Kathy. She was very lucky to be alive.

Nickelpeed said...

Got the mail Becky.

OMGosh, don't let the Surfers be last. Please......

Becky said...

YEAH!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Darn him! I'd rather see them out.

Just glad Bethany and Adam wasn't last.

Nickelpeed said...

Will see you guys Wednesday for Survivor, then TAR on Friday.

Thank you for hosting us Jackie. I hope you start feeling better.

Becky said...

Great show!

monty924 said...

Happy that Adam and Bethany got to the mat first. This has been a great season of the Amazing Race. I actually like all of them for different reasons.. .yes, even the Wrestlers :))

Becky said...

Thanks, Jackie.

Jackie said...

Thank you all for coming by!

lynn1 said...
