The Amazing Race 26 - March 6 Blog Party


It's Friday night! I hope you haven't forgotten that it's time for The Amazing Race! So far, I'm generally liking most of the couples -- both the "real" couples and the blind date couples. I'm not too keen on Kurt of Kurt and Bergen fame. He seems to be working against his partner and I'm thinking they won't last long due to him. I'm really enjoying how both Jelani/Jenny and Tyler/Laura have been working together for folks just thrown in with each other.

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

Mike and Rochelle - Cheryl in NC, Laurie
Aly and Steve - Jackie, SueGee
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
Lebya ang CJ - Donna in FL, PDXGranny

As the show airs here, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest news! As always, the real party will be in the comments area. Come join us there!

Teams are flying to Thailand. Uh-oh. Harley/Jonathan get a really later flight.

Oh, geez. They're doing something with "selfie sticks." I'm not too pleased with the selfie craze hitting the show. They have to find a clue in an upside-down house.

Detour - Ski or Tree. Ski has them doing an obstacle course on a waveboard ski. Tree has them delivering a meal via zipline. Dang, Hayley is annoying as she goes off on Blair because they did the task wrong.

Oh, my! Rochelle and Mike take over the lead! Who woulda thunk it? They now have to dress as go-go dancers and learn a choreographed routine. They made it through the dance routine and are heading to the Pit Stop!

1. Mike and Rochelle - Won a trip to Prague. 

Matt left his fanny pack behind at the dance hall. They have to go back.

2. Haley and Blair
3.Tyler and Laurie
4. Aly and Steve
5. Jelani and Jenny
6. Jackie and Jeffrey
7. Matt and Ashley
8. Kurt and Bergen

(I think ... they all came stampeding in.)

Matt proposes to Ashley! How exciting!

9. Harley and Jonathan -- A non-Philimination! They're still in it!

Hi Jackie! Hope your doing well!

Cheryl Sherman said...

Hi Lynn

David said...

Hello everyone who shows up. =)

They should have moved the spring season of TAR back to Sunday. As much as I like this show I think this Friday time slot may kill it.

lynn1 said...

Hi Cheryl and David

Cheryl Sherman said...

Hi David....agree with you on the friday time slot

David said...

I want to fly to Thailand. The farthest I have ever been out of the US is a few miles into Mexico.

Jackie said...

Hi!

Cheryl Sherman said...

I would do this show ..just for the travel..the only place outside the us i have been is jamaica..20 years ago..lol

lynn1 said...

I have never been to Asia but I did live in Europe for 8 years and was lucky enough to be able to travel around

Jackie said...

This is the one reality show I definitely would have signed on for had it been around in the 80s (back in my daredevil days).

David said...

I'm in Cheryl. lol

They should have an all old people cast so I would have a fighting chance. =)

Cheryl Sherman said...

David... i know right..if it would have to be all old folks

David said...

I wonder if they hold them all up after getting through customs to make it fair as it seems they are all racing at the same time to taxi's and such after getting off planes.

Cheryl Sherman said...

so still learning the teams...which ones are the olympians

Jackie said...

Aly and Steve are the Olympians

David said...

Another Choreograph, that's 2 in a row if they picked the wrong one last show. My 2 left feet says I would end up last.

Cheryl Sherman said...

yes..i definately would not do good with any choreography...

Cheryl Sherman said...

my pool picks in first .
but not doing well

Cheryl Sherman said...

they got it

lynn1 said...

Some of the guys have a bad attitude about the dancing. If they would relax and have fun with it they would do much better

Cheryl Sherman said...

agree lynn...have fun with it..this one not as precise as last time

David said...

I wouldn't mind going to Prague, as long as it was in the summer time. =)

Jackie said...

I never thought Mike and Rochelle would take a first place. I'm happy for them.

lynn1 said...

I never got to go to Prague but if I ever get the chance I will go

Cheryl Sherman said...

me neither Jackie...happily surprised for my pool pick!!

lynn1 said...

I am happy for Mike and Rochelle too. They seem down to earth and nice people

Cheryl Sherman said...

awwwwwww...that was so sweet

Cheryl Sherman said...

what did the guys give them

lynn1 said...

fun show tonight. Thanks Jackie . Night Cheryl and David

David said...

Say Noooo Ashley. lol I want to see that just one time. The girl being put under pressure like that on TV just say no.

Cheryl Sherman said...

gn Lynn

Jackie said...

I'm not sure what they gave them. I was all discombobulated trying to list the teams in order at the Pit Stop. They shouldn't come in all at once like that!

Cheryl Sherman said...

haha david...that would not be good

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

David said...

I was thinking it might be a non-Philimination leg.

Thanks Jackie. =)

Hope you are feeling much better.

Cheryl Sherman said...

Todight was a fun show...gn David...And Jackie thanks as always for hosting..

David said...

They gave them a date night card that they found during the leg. They didn't harp on it like they did the last leg so it was easy to miss.

Becky said...

Jackie, I completely forgot about the show. My head is still not straight.
