The Amazing Race 26 - May 8 Blog Party


It's Friday night -- time for The Amazing Race! Tonight is the penultimate show of the season, with the finale airing next Friday in the regular 8pm time slot.

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 is in the comments area. I hope to see you there. (And bring snacks. And beverages.)

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

Mike and Rochelle - Cheryl in NC, Laurie
Blair and Hayley - Terry in TX, Margo, Chris
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 
Bergen and Kurt - Nana in NW, Rbennie
Jeffrey and Jackie - Brian, Donna in AL, ORKMommy
Aly and Steve - Jackie, SueGee 
Matt and Ashley - Delee, Merrilee

Let's get this show on the road! Teams are headed to the lower altitude area of Peru where they must search South America's largest mosaic tile wall with a magnifying glass to find their next clue.

Detour - Perform a national dance or make bricks for archeologists.

Mike and Rochelle are the only real dating couple -- not blind daters -- remaining in the race. I've grown to like them. Although unlikely, I would love to see them win.  Their car to the wall is not a healthy car. Fingers crossed for them! Uh-oh. Laura and Tyler, the last team to leave the Pit Stop, passed them. I do like Laura and Tyler, though. If I had my druthers, it would be one of the other two teams going home. I'm not keen on either Hayley or Jenny.

Hayley and Blair actually worked well together in the brick making/delivery detour and are in the lead. Mike and Rochelle are running last. 

Roadblock - Who wants to ride a seahorse? Has them going through the surf on a native handmade boat doohickey. 

Hayley and Blair are on the way to the Pit Stop. If Hayley had all season been as pleasant as she's been on this leg, I'd like her.

But I don't and she was nasty! 

It's looking dismal for Rochelle and Mike. They switched from bricks to dancing and are definitely trailing.  

Pit Stop --
1. Hayley and Blair - won a trip for two to India 
2. Jelani and Jenny 

Mike and Rochelle are finally on the way to the Roadblock while Laura and Tyler are finishing it up. 

3. Laura and Tyler 
4. Mike and Rochelle

HOWEVER, YOUR RACE IS NOT OVER! Whoopie! The final leg starts right now! They're still in it, but a team will be Philiminated before the finish line.

Hey, Jackie and others who arrive.

Becky said...

It is amazing that three of the four couples are "blind dates". Interesting, don't you think?

Jackie said...

Hi, Becky! I'm kind of hoping the one real couple wins although they're the most out of shape of them all. I've grown to like them and I didn't think I would at the beginning of the season.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, is it just us tonight?

Becky said...

I know. Rotten luck with the cab. I think when he had trouble wsith startiong the heap I would have gotten out.

Jackie said...

So far I guess it's us. A few more may show up.

Becky said...

They get along well when they get along.... which is when things are going good.

Becky said...

Laundry, cooking for tomorrow... just stuff, LOL.

I haven't kept up with TAR much this season because I still forget most Fridays that it is on.

monty924 said...

I agree, SueGee. I missed a lot of Sunday nights too but I always remembered to DVR it. Something about Fridays just throws me off.

Becky said...

Hey, SueeGee. Did you have a nice BD?

~~Silk said...

Lurking again.

Becky said...

Great!

monty924 said...

That would be heart breaking

Becky said...

Oh, for some reason I thought they had pulled into third.

monty924 said...

Good for them!!

Becky said...

WEONDERFUL!!!

Jackie said...

I'm glad they're still in it!

monty924 said...

Well, back to laundry. I'll see you guys on Wednesday. Have a great weekend everyone!

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting us. The "crowd" was small but maybe next Friday will have more here.

Jackie said...

Thank you for coming by!

Becky said...

Hey, Silk. I didn't see you until I went to sign off.
