The Amazing Race 26: April 3 Blog Party


It's Friday night! I hope you haven't forgotten that it's time for The Amazing Race! It's been bad enough that people haven't been adjusting to the Friday time slot. But now, after a two week absence due to March Madness basketball, my hopes are just that someone shows up for the blog party!

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

Mike and Rochelle - Cheryl in NC, Laurie
Aly and Steve - Jackie, SueGee
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 and CJ - Donna in FL, PDXGranny 
Harley and Jonathan - Becky, Willie J

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!

The teams are flying off to Germany where they will end up being part of Oktoberfest. All teams are on the same 17-hour flight. In native garb, they have to climb to the top of a tower, find their cars and head off. One team switched cars and left behind a fanny pack ... probably containing the important stuff. It's Tyler's fanny pack -- Jackie and Jeff find it. For doing so well before, they're quibbling now!

Their destination inside what looks like an old factory is actually a winter wonderland. They have to drive their product placement cars backwards using the rear view camera through it. 

This must be the Quibble and Bicker Episode. 

Tyler and Laura get through the backwards snow course first, but now have to wait for the other car to show up with his fanny pack.

Kurt and Bergen decide to give up the car, take a taxi and the penalty. They won't be able to do that because they need the car for the challenge. 

Now Aly and Steve are leading the pack, rowing away.

Detour - Stein or Stack.  Deliver many steins of bear without spilling. Stack is stacking crates.

Kurt and Bergen are allowed a two hour penalty.

Roadblock has them singing a song.  Sing it wrong and get drenched.

Jeff and Jackie tried to lie about the fanny pack. Didn't work.

Aly and Steve are the first heading to the Pit Stop. Hayley is getting more and more annoying. Not only does she have a Bernadette voice (from The Big Bang Theory), but she won't stop nitpicking at Blair. Laura referred to her as the Wicked Witch of the West.

Pit Stop --
1. Aly and Steve -- each won a 2015 Ford Focus (product placement vehicle) 
2. Matt and Ashley
3. Jeff and Jackie
4. Jelani and Jenny
5. Hayley and Blair 
6. Laura and Tyler 
7. Mike and Rochelle

Bergen and Kurt are totally lost trying to take the train. Phil has to go find them at the train station. They are Philiminated. And, it's all Kurt's fault. Poor Bergen. He seems to be a decent guy who was trying to be in it to win it. Kurt wanted love. Blech on him.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jackie and Becky

Thank you, Jackie for hosting us.

It's been a long, long time!!!

Becky said...

Hey, Penny. Yes, thank you for hosting, Jackie.

Nickelpeed said...

I do not, is his name Burgan? The annoying one? Such a mismatch.

Nickelpeed said...

This looks like fun. I love classical German dress.

Jackie said...

Hey, you two! Penny -- the annoying one is Kurt

Nickelpeed said...

Octoberfest is crazy. I loved it though.

Becky said...

Stick shift hangup -- AGAIN!

Nickelpeed said...

Did they just leave a sack in the car???

Nickelpeed said...

Thanks, Jackie. Always get it mixed up.

Nickelpeed said...

I thought those two got along? Wow. Very rude.

Becky said...

Will future contestants never learn. Just like going on Survivor without knowing how to make fire.

Becky said...

At least the blind date couples will never have to have any contact after the show.

Cheryl Sherman said...

Hi Becky Penny and Jackie!!! After all this time how does someone go on this show and not know how to drive a stick...geez

~~Silk said...

I'm sitting in the corner again, following the comments of you folks who can multitask.

Cheryl Sherman said...

its like going on survivor and not knowing how to make fire... no excuse...lol

Nickelpeed said...

I said the same thing, Becky. Learn to shift. LOL

Cheryl Sherman said...

hi silk

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Cheryl, yeah, we said the same thing. Learn to shift!!!

Becky said...

I hate using the one on my car.

Nickelpeed said...

I think she got the li wrong. It's il

Nickelpeed said...

Apparently, it was right.

Becky said...

Hi, Cheryl and Silk.

Cheryl Sherman said...

did only the one car have navigation..or the others just dont realize it

Nickelpeed said...

They will have to take a huge penalty because they need their car for the task.

Nickelpeed said...

That is not easy. These steins are heavy.

Nickelpeed said...

Who has the dark blue car?

Cheryl Sherman said...

the ones who were fighting real bad earlier have the dark blue car

Becky said...

She made that seem easy!

Cheryl Sherman said...

ohhhh they wouldnt

Cheryl Sherman said...

people that act like that piss me off..i dont care if it is for a million bucks

Nickelpeed said...

Phew, they got their passports.

I feel sorry for Bergham. They will probably come in last this time. The other guy is just horrible.

Becky said...

What do y'all think of the blind date twist?

Nickelpeed said...

I forgot to add, I really loved that white reindeer.

Cheryl Sherman said...

good job with the singing

Nickelpeed said...

I like the soshi two.

Becky said...

That would be me! Dropping beer all over the place.

Nickelpeed said...

Boy, these two argue and argue. She's terrible.

Cheryl Sherman said...

blondie needs to get a grip...he was just trying to help her

Nickelpeed said...

That is a stupid choice by Tyler and what's her name.

Yay for Ali and Steve!!!

Becky said...

Boy, would I ever be wet. I can't sing well in English!

Nickelpeed said...

I wonder if they'll have to take another penalty without a car?

Nickelpeed said...

Neither can I, Becky. I'd never get through that one. LOL

Cheryl Sherman said...

they need to go do the steins..they would breeze through it

Becky said...

I can't carry a tune in a bucket.

Jackie said...

The clue said they had to drive there, so I think Kurt and Bergen will get another penalty.

Cheryl Sherman said...

penny..i think they should get another one..but we will see..i doubt it

Jackie said...

As much as lying about the fanny pack irked me, Jackie is the only one who has a decent singing voice.

Cheryl Sherman said...

hope you are rigt Jackie...dumb of them to give up the car

Jackie said...

Cheryl - If they come in last, it won't matter.

Cheryl Sherman said...

agree Jackie..almost opera like with that soprano voice

David said...

Hi everyone =)

Running late as usual on Fridays. Finish up work for the week. Of course the show doesn't come on here for another 6 minutes so I guess late is all relative.

Cheryl Sherman said...

the bad thing is my couple there cant drive the stick either
hopefully they. can manage to get there faster

Becky said...

Are the ones who hid the passport?

Cheryl Sherman said...

almost feel bad for bergan...hes right the other guy i think wanted it to be over

Nickelpeed said...

Poor Bergan.

Thank you for hosting, Jackie. Won't be here next week. I'll be working.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Becky said...

Cheryl Sherman said...

Jackie said...

Nickelpeed said...

My husband asked if Jackie was an opera singer. Good voice.

Cheryl Sherman said...
