The Amazing Race 25: Season Finale Blog Party

Ready to race?

Teams are flying to Los Angeles. All teams are on the same flight. The vehicles they get into after the flight are Ford product placements. The scientists, followed by the surfers make it to the first clue. Then the dentists arrive. Now the scientists seem to be in the first place.

The have to perform a stunt crashing through a plate glass window for the Roadblock. Who wants to be a Hollywood action hero?

The wrestlers are totally lost, haven't made it to the city hall first clue.

Scientists still in first place, wrestlers still not to first clue. Scientists forgot to take the costume off from the Roadblock and now the surfers pass them onto first. Wrestlers finally got their first clue.

They have to go on a search and rescue exercise with the Coast Guard. Adam and Bethany running first place, then the scientists followed immediately by the dentists.

Now the dentists are in second place.

Uh-oh. The wrestlers are at the stunt man task and Phil is approaching. Onto commercial. Yep, Phil told them they missed their "call time" for the stunt and they're Philiminated.

Another Roadblock. Who can contain themselves? They have to find nine shipping containers that represent nine cities and get them in the right order. Bethany has to do it as Adam did the stunt.

Amy is first to try to write the clues down. Then Bethany. Then Misti. All relatively close. It's a run to the final pit stop in a taxi.Uh-oh, Bethany and Misti screwed up their numbers. Misti gets it first. (Grr.)

Whoa! MAYA AND AMY win The Amazing Race! If Bethany and Adam can't win, they're the best second choice for me right now! They're only the third all female team in 25 seasons to win it.

Then come Jim and Misti.

Then Adam and Bethany.

Next season is "dating couples" with five couples meeting as a blind date to run the race. That's different!

Hi Penny & Monty

lynn1 said...

Take it easy Jackie. Don't overdo tonight

monty924 said...

My favs are Bethany and Adam & the candy scientists

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Penny, Monty, and Lynn and others. Glad you are okay, Jackie. My Christmas wish is that you are 100% by Christmas Day.

lynn1 said...

I was surprised that the finale is only going to be an hour show

Becky said...

Monty, I am with you.

lynn1 said...

Hi Becky

monty924 said...

Jackie, sorry to hear you're still not up to par. Take it easy

Nickelpeed said...

No, Brooke - You are annoying!!!

Becky said...

I really, really, REALLY dislike the wrestlers.

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, just for that, Jim, I hope you guys are the low hanging fruit a long with the wrestlers.

Nickelpeed said...

Do you need some help? We can blog.

monty924 said...

My brother asked (last week) if it was wrong to want to kick a dentist's teeth out? LOL

lynn1 said...

I really hope the snarky attitudes of the wrestlers and dentists come back to bite them squarely in the hiney.

David said...

Hi everyone =)

Hope you are feeling better Jackie. Go ahead and take the next couple of months off from hosting here after tonight. =)

I saw at the end of Survivor they mentioned that TAR will premiere after the Survivor premiere. Same night. I wonder if that means they will be moving TAR to Wednesday night next. Will be better than Friday but make for long watching nights.

Nickelpeed said...

See, that's what happens when you diss someone like that. Couldn't happen to two better groups.

Go Bethany and Adam!!

Nickelpeed said...

Good for the Scientists!!!

Yay, Adam and Bethany!!!

Becky said...

The direction you are going is on the dash on an Explorer.

lynn1 said...

Hi David

Nickelpeed said...

Aren't Adam and Bethany from that general area?

Becky said...

Or look at the sky or the shadows from trees.

Kathy said...

Hi Everyone, how are you all.

David said...

Hi Lynn1 and Kathy =)

Nickelpeed said...

I wonder why it's only an hour show? It's usually 2. However, that means we find out sooner, who won!!!

Ah, Karma is so great!!!

lynn1 said...

Hi Kathy

monty924 said...

Happy that the wrestlers are in last place

Nickelpeed said...

Is everyone, who celebrates, ready for Christmas?

monty924 said...

Hi Becky, David and Kathy

monty924 said...

No, Penny... I'm not at all. I've only bought two gifts. This is absolutely the latest I've ever gone with only two presents. The rest will probably turn out to be gift cards. :((

Becky said...

Hey, David, Kathy and anyone I missed.

Nickelpeed said...

I think they followed the directions wrong.

Nickelpeed said...

I like the idea of having TAR after Survivor. I wonder where they are moving Criminal Minds?

Nickelpeed said...

Monty, I always shop early. Now, my husband on the other hand, not so much. LOL

David said...

Goooo Brainiacs and Surfers. =)

lynn1 said...

I'm as ready as I am going ot be. still have to wrap the gifts and stuff the stockings with the goodies I have.

Becky said...

I thought they were engaged sweethearts not married.

Nickelpeed said...

That does suck. Boy, the surferes are just plain nice people.

monty924 said...

Come on candy girls...

Becky said...

Hope you STAY at the bottom!

Nickelpeed said...

Becky, you mean Adam and Bethany? They are married.

lynn1 said...

Go Surfers and Candy girls

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, Scientists....you've got to move ahead of them.

Karma really has a way of working it all out in the wash!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Weren't the wrestlers saved one time by a non-elimination?

lynn1 said...

Yes Penny they were

David said...

I am ready for Christmas. Only have the dog to get something for besides myself. =) Got him a big dinosaur looking bone. That should keep him out from under my feet for a couple of hours. lol

Kathy said...

Please let the Soul Surfers stay in first place.

Nickelpeed said...

It was gnarly and sick...surfer talk. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

David, your dog is going to LOVE you!!! LOL

Lynn, I thought the wrestlers were saved once. So, what are they complaining about? Hope they stay at the bottom.

Nickelpeed said...

They are just too sweet. I really want them to win. Go Bethany and Adam.

Kathy said...

Please let the Soul Surfers stay in first place.

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Bethany and Adam, you have got to moooooooove, fast!!!

monty924 said...

I hope so

lynn1 said...

Here comes Phil

Becky said...

Jackie, if the weather is nasty I for one would be thrilled and happy with a Vincent Week That Was. Start from when he first came to his Foever Home until now.

lynn1 said...

Sure hope the wrestlers are history

Marybeth said...

So happy to see Phil!

Nickelpeed said...

Becky...how is your husband and your Mom doing?

Paige Morrison said...

Please, the end of the wrestlers is about to be..,

monty924 said...

Hi Marybeth

monty924 said...

Too bad, so sad...

Nickelpeed said...

Karma, really sucks, doesn't it guys? Sorry......

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, we will.. Very forgetable couple.

lynn1 said...

This is going to be difficult

Becky said...

Good the wrestlers are gone, attitude and all. Now GO Soul Surfers.

monty924 said...

This will work against the scientists because she has a bad ankle

Delee said...

Ugh, 15,000 cargo containers! This will be fun.

SueGee said...

Howdy everyone!! I'm so glad this Friday night show is finally over!! BAD night!!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

David said...

I forgot about them already. LOL Some couple that liked to play in ropes or jump rope on a square pad I think or something like that. Right?

lynn1 said...

I kind of hope misty gets frazzled like she has before

monty924 said...

Close at the finish

Anonymous said...

Jackie, I did not realize until Wed.that you are not well. I did not know and still do not know what happened but please let me say how much I wish you a speedy recovery.

Becky said...

The scientist probably has the better memory.

Nickelpeed said...

I hope the surfers know their cities. I want them to win. Pleeeeaaaaase.

But, that also means Misty will have to do it.

Should be okay for scientists. Maybe.

monty924 said...

Go girls!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Yep, scientists should do well.

Kathy said...

Jackie it was me who posted the comment by anonymous

David said...

Has a all girl team ever won TAR? I can't remember if a all girl team has or not.

lynn1 said...

darn

monty924 said...

I would mess that up too. No way could I remember those the way they were presented.

Becky said...

Darn!

Nickelpeed said...

I really wanted to see Bethany and Adam win this. I'll be happy with the Scientists, though.

Just not the Dentists....

Kathy said...

I am having trouble posting tonight

Becky said...

I don't want the dentist to win!

lynn1 said...

I am OK with the candy girls since they are my pool team

monty924 said...

YAY!!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

No, no, not the dentists....nooooooo!

YES!!!!!!

Becky said...

Great! One of our favorites won.

monty924 said...

Great winners!

Paige Morrison said...

Omg!!! Wonderful!

Nickelpeed said...

Nobody expected them at all. I can be happy with this!

Don't look so thrilled Wrestlers!
Karma bites you!!!

Becky said...

Swallow THAT Wrestlers, or put in your pipe and smoke it!

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, thank you so much for hosting us. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Hanukah to everyone.

I'll be away from a computer for a week...ugh...

monty924 said...

I don't even remember a few of those couples.

David said...

Good for them. =))

Glad it wasn't the Dentists. The scientists are one of the teams I would have picked to be first out of the race and they won. Well deserved win. =))

Nickelpeed said...

This makes me happy!!!

I love this blog...you're all wonderful!!!

And, of course, Jackie, you are a wonderful host!!!

lynn1 said...

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Hanukkah to all my pool buds.

Becky said...

I'll clap for them! She is an inspiration to anyone with a disability.

Jackie, thank you for hosting! We couldn't do it without you being in charge. Take care of yourself and mend. Hugs, scratches and cat nip to Vincent.

Jackie said...

Nickelpeed said...
