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?

Here's the updated blog pool presented by the Magnificent Margo:

Mike and Rochelle - Cheryl in NC, Laurie
Aly and Steve - Jackie, SueGee
Lebya ang CJ - Donna in FL, PDXGranny
Harley and Jonathan - Becky, Willie J
Matt and Ashley - Delee, Merrilee
Bergen and Kurt - Nana in NW, Rbennie
Blair and Hayley - Terry in TX, Margo, Chris
Jeffrey and Jackie - Brian, Donna in AL, ORKMommy
Jelani and Jenny - Marlo, Lynn 1, dla
Tyler and Laura - Ed in OH, David, Nickelpeed

PHILIMINATED:
Jeff and Lyda - Jennasmom, Paula Bell, meb

Attention CHRIS -- I saw your name was on the list to sign up and was somehow missed. You now are on the Blair/Hayley team! My apologies!

As the show airs here on the East Coast, this entry will be updated with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest! As always, the real party is in the comments area. I hope to see you there!

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.

Pit Stop:
1. Jelani and Jenny - won a FitBit kit, a year of gym, a year of groceries and more. 
2. Laura and Tyler 

Jonathan and Harley got the Date Spa Night slip. 

3. Aly and Steve 
4. Jonathan and Harley
5. Bergen and Kurt
6. Jackie and Jeffrey
7. Matt and Ashley 
8. Mike and Rochelle 
9. Blair and Hayley 
10. CJ and Lebya -- Philiminated

Hello everyone!!! Happy Friday!

Hi Jackie. Thank you for blogging this. It is greatly appreciated.

I have Sweet Pink Moscato!!

Nickelpeed said...

I hate those U-turns. I would never use one. Karma is a b***ch.

Jackie said...

Hey, Penny! I need alcohol tonight!

Jackie said...

A friend of mine created the U-Turn for the show.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh dear, Jackie, where is everyone? I guess this proves how much of a life I have. LOL

Jackie said...

Friday night turnout was low last season. I'm sure some more will come along.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and Penny. I agree about the U-turn karma.

Becky said...

Be right back. I need to change my avitar.

Jackie said...

Ah, good. Becky is here/will be back. I'm not great company as I have to update the blog.

SueGee said...

I'm here but I can't watch the show yet - just chat with you guys!!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

SueGee said...

I brought lots of Chinese take-out for your consumption. Wor Won Ton Soup is to die for!!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Becky said...

Hey, Sue.

Donna in FL said...

Almost forgot it was on tonight!

SueGee said...

I thought the networks always sent shows to Friday to die..very few success stories from Friday (except I do try and keep up with Shark Tank and Blue Bloods)

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Becky said...

I brought brisket poor boys. I didn't make them, just bought them.

David said...

Hi everyone. =) I am here but also can't watch the show for another 50 minutes. So that leaves me hanging on every word you write Jackie. No pressure. =)

SueGee said...

Hey Becky Hi Jackie Hi Penny Hi Donna

SueGee said...

Hi David I'm in the same boat but way further behind.

Jackie - did you see they announced a Big Brother start date today? I already forgot it LOL

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Nickelpeed said...

Talking and missed the train. Bummer

Becky said...

I wouldn't be able to think with those drums and would be unable to do the challange. That's my story and I am sticking to it!

Jackie said...

I saw something last night. Tonight I pretty much got home from work and had to set up the blog post.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky, how are you doing?

Jackie, that's cool that one of your friends did the U-turn for the show.

David said...

We are finally getting a real snow today. And like the fool I am I went out driving in it. Stupid snow plow almost hit me. We usually get what the east coast is getting but it has been a dry winter here.

Nickelpeed said...

Sue, I love Wong Tong Soup!!!

SueGee said...

I love Won Ton Soup when I'm getting a cold - better than chicken soup for me!!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Nickelpeed said...

Glad it didn't hit you David. Snow plows have taken out our mail box multiple times. They do not watch what they do.

Nickelpeed said...

I get the feeling the two blonde guys do not like each other. LOL

SueGee said...

Be back later...gonna go heat up some soup

SueGee on the LeftCoast

David said...

I like Won ton soup but when I am getting a cold I go for the Hot and Spicey stir Fry with extra, extra, extra hot in it. Makes you sweat just eating it.

Nickelpeed said...

These two are really good.

Nickelpeed said...

I would not be able to do that "rubic's cube" at all.

Becky said...

Penny, I finally called "Uncle" today. I had such a bad headache I had to ask the nurse to finish feeding Momma so I could go to the doctor's office and beg to be seen. I had to see the PA. She said that it is possibly a mild concussion, but the only way to tell for sure is a CT scan. I did not want to do that. She gave me a shot and an anti-inflamatory prescription. I have to go back Monday if I am not a lot better.

Nickelpeed said...

Was there another task besides the box?

Jackie said...

My brother's 65 red Mustang got wrecked by a snowplow on Christmas Eve back in the 70s

Jackie said...

Penny - The box is a Roadblock, not a Detour with two choices.

Nickelpeed said...

If you hit your head hard enough, you probably do have a mild concussion, Becky.

Has the shot helped at all? You might have to have the CT scan.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, okay, Jackie, thanks.

Man Jackie, if I had been your brother and a snow plow damaged a classic, I would be hopping mad.

Nickelpeed said...

That one reminds me of Colton!!! The guy in the green.

Becky said...

I wondered about that too. However I am so confused I don't know my hiney from a hole in the ground.

Take smaller portions and swallow without chewing.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh, Becky, I feel bad for you. Hope you start feeling better soon.

Becky said...

Jackie, I had a 65 Mustang convertible. That was my baby.

~~Silk said...

Hi. I'm here, but on a tablet. typing is awkward.

Jackie said...

If you're having confusion, it's probably a concussion, Becky. BTW - they don't always show on CT scans. That would just rule out a fracture or bleeding within the brain.

Unfortunately, I've become a concussion expert.

SueGee said...

I left the snow behind me in 1970 and only go visit it occasionally now. Now I live in the land of drought and earthquakes and I love it!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Becky said...

Penny, good news is I have done any cooking, cleaning or any work at all.

Poor Tommy feels so bad about what happened.

It's funny, but really not.... when I first tell someone what happened, you can see "spousal abuse" on their face. That man has not laid a hand on me in 56 years of marriage.

Becky said...

They should have changed after the first try.

SueGee said...

You get new meds and/or a new Doctor yet Jackie?

SueGee

David said...

Hi Silk =)

I know I would have been mad about a snowplow wrecking my car. I lost my '73 fastback mustang 20 minutes after midnight on new years when an idiot parked his truck sideways across the road and got out to take a leak behind it. He drove past a stop sign and stopped in the road.

Becky said...

Is the team skating the doctor and nurse

Nickelpeed said...

Man, I hate to see these two go. I love these guys. How sad.

Nickelpeed said...

Before I forget, I will not be here until late on Wednesday night because I have to work. I'll be out by, 8, but it takes me 28 minutes to get home. LOL

Jackie said...

Not yet, SueGee.

Becky said...

Jackie, I have wanted to ask you about that, but did not want to intrude on your issues.

Hopefully it isn't a concussion, but just a severe bruise.

Thank you for hosting. Hopefully the Friday crowd will grow.

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, thank you so much for hosting us. Hope your head didn't hurt too much.

Becky, I hope you start feeling better. Get that CT scan if you have to; and rest.

See everyone next Friday. I'm mad because I'm missing Survivor. Will have to watch it when I get home.

Jackie said...

I enjoyed CJ and Lebya, but you could tell they'd be out sooner rather than later. There aren't any teams I actually dislike yet. I don't think the pairing of Kurt and Bergen is going well.

Nickelpeed said...

That was a cute Clorax commercial. LOL

David said...

It is a shame to see them go but as lost as they were on the last leg I thought they were living on borrowed time.

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a good evening.

Jackie said...

Thank you for coming!

Becky said...

Penny, just be careful driving home. Night all.

SueGee said...

See you all Wednesday!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Nickelpeed said...

See everyone next week.

Donna in FL said...

My pool pick Philiminated...before I even got to learn all the teams LOL
but I could tell from the first episode they weren't going to last long.
See ya Wednesday.

Chris said...

Thanks for pushing me into the pool Jackie!!

Rochelle said...

Not watching but can't believe there is a person named Rochelle on here. Never hear of anyone named Rochelle….
