The Amazing Race 26 Blog Party - February 27
Yes, we're here on Friday nights once again. I hated the Sundays due to delays. However, I really think they must have had a fall-off in ratings moving it to the Friday 8pm ET/PT slot. I know that many of the readers here kept forgetting it was on or had Friday evening plans.
In the premiere the other night, we saw three of the "blind date" couples arrive at the mat in the top three. Will that repeat tonight?

Mike and Rochelle - Cheryl in NC, Laurie
Aly and Steve - Jackie, SueGee

Heh. They all have to sleep in tiny places that Tokyo is known for.
They're staying in Japan for now, but don't ask me to spell the name of the next town. They have to get there by bullet train.
Roadblock - Open a trick box by using a series of complicated moves, follow clue inside. There's a spa trip for one couple to be used the pit stop. A loud band is there for annoyance while the puzzle box is being worked on.
CJ and Lebya, already trailing, missed their train while talking about the train.
Tyler and Laura are the first through the Roadblock. Jelani and Jenny follow them.
Detour -- Hitting the Ice (Chair) or Noodling with a favorite dish (share). Share has them feeding each other a bowl of noodles. A fan is blowing to make the noodles fly in the wind.
Tyler and Laura are the first heading to the Pit Stop. They did not hold their taxi. Jelani and Jenny finish and their cab is waiting. They take the lead.
Chair has them pushing their partners around in a chair while on skates. Most chose Share. The Olympians chose the Chair.
