The Amazing Race 27: October 16 Episode Blog Party


Hi, everybody! As the show airs here tonight, I'll be updating this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest news! As always, the real party is in the comments area. Come join in on the fun!

I'm thinking tonight could very well be a non-Philimination leg. We know there's a Double U-Turn ahead and that the Texans are gunning for Justin. This could be very interesting!

Ready? Let's GO! 

Tanner and Josh continue to push for other teams to use the Double U-Turn on Justin and Diana, promising them the Express Pass. Teams are heading to Zambia with the first flight only holding four teams. There's a fifteen minute difference. Justin and Diana and Texas make it on the first flight.

Roadblock - Who wants to rise above the smoke that thunders? Riding a glider motorized thingee to find a clue over Victoria Falls. Josh and Tanner use their Express Pass. 

Justin approaches Joey for an alliance. Of course, Joey and Kelsey are also in on the U-Turn Justin and Diana plan, too. 

The Texans go from Zambia to Zimbabwe. They really screwed up. They used the Express Pass before the Roadblock, now have to wait for 8am to get the next clue (or Detour). Ha. 

Double Ha. The Texans and Justin/Diana are both the only teams going at 8am. The next team got an 8:10am key. Huh. Both teams promise not to U-Turn each other.

Detour: Co-op or Croquet. Staining and polishing a native ornamental giraffe or playing croquet. James Earl pronounces it "crokette."

Justin and Diana get through first and get a clue to head to the Pit Stop at an orphanage. Josh and Tanner are on the heels and now both teams are kind of even looking for taxis.

Justin and Diana do NOT use the U-Turn. They make it to the Pit Stop first and donate all they have.

Pit Stop ...
Still racing and and get a clue to carry on.

Josh and Tanner do not use the U-Turn and have respect for Justin and Diana for not using it on them.

Phil tells them they need to decide NOW who will get their second Express Pass.

Of course, it's not NOW and it's to be continued next week.

Hello Jackie and everyone who remembers TAR is on tonight. =)

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jackie and David. Ought to be a good one tonight. Thank you for hosting us, Jackie. Appreciate it.

monty924 said...

Hey Jackie, David and Penny... this U-Turn tonight makes me nervous

David said...

4th week in and I am still having trouble knowing who each team is. As soon as I got a team down they get eliminated. lol

SueGee said...

Howdy everyone!! Hi to Jackie & Vincent. My Lucy is watching this over my shoulder.

SueGee on the LeftCoast

monty924 said...

I know, David lol

Hey SueGee

SueGee said...

Everyone got your Halloween candy nice and early so you have time to eat it and then go get some more??

monty924 said...

Good... they made it on the first flight

SueGee said...

I don't like it when one team puts pressure on another to help them do their dirty work.

monty924 said...

LOL @ SueGee. I bought some last night and haven't broke into it yet. We never get any Trick or Treaters, so it's mostly our candy anyways.

David said...

LOL SueGee yea, that is how it works. Since no one comes around here any candy I buy is all mine anyway. =)

SueGee said...

I always make sure that what I like is what I buy. I used to be able to take it into work and get rid of it. None of that now!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hola!!

David said...

Hi Ed =)

I do hope it is Tanner and Josh that get U-turned, instant Karma is needed on them.

Jackie said...

Hey, guys. I'm under the influence of cold meds. Ick.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm hoping the green team will be safe. The two boys are bent on getting rid of them. I hope it backfires. Sorry for anyone who has them.

monty924 said...

Hey Homie

monty924 said...

Sorry to hear that Jackie! We'll keep it quiet in here.

SueGee said...

Sorry to hear that Jackie. I've been trying to fight off one that wants to go into my ears (pop pop pop) The meds are the ones that speed you up tho...

Hope you feel better real quick!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi David, Yea karma can be a ......

Nickelpeed said...

How beautiful. I would love to do that challenge.

Hi monty! I hope it comes back to bite the boys if they U-turn Justin, just because they do not like him.

David said...

Those boys are so determined to put the kibosh on Justin and Diana that they wasted their express pass when they were in the lead, Sheeesh. Not very smart on their part.

Jackie said...

I can see where Justin can be annoying. But Josh and Tanner might blow up their own game by concentrating on them this early in the race.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hey Homie Monty!

monty924 said...

Have to agree with all of you and it looks like the edit is pointing in that direction! Fingers crossed

Nickelpeed said...

You're right, Jackie. Justin probably is very annoying.

monty924 said...

Momma Denise cracks me up

SueGee said...

You've got that right Jackie. These people try to play too hard and too fast anymore. They need to pay attention to their own game first!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Don't know if I could fly in one of those things?!?!

Nickelpeed said...

I don't like hearing Justin saying he plays the game better than anyone else. That could come back to bite him.

Nickelpeed said...

I would fly in it, though, Ed. To see Victoria Falls would be a dream come true.

monty924 said...

I'd fly in one of them for the once in a lifetime experience... I love my bucket list :)))

Ed in Ohio said...

Yea Nickel the falls part would be great. I'd just like a little BIGGER vehicle.

We took a helicopter over Niagra Falls....Victoria would be awesome!

monty924 said...

Penny, there a lot of little things in tonight's edit. Justin being cocky is for sure one of them

Ed in Ohio said...

OK I might fly in one....but I might need some of Jackie's cough medicine :-)

Nickelpeed said...

I am sure about that, Monty. I bet he has a huge head on his shoulders. LOL

monty924 said...

Seems like most of them are out for GreenTeam :((

Nickelpeed said...

Well, it looks like a lot of them do not like Justin and Diana. Crap. Wonder what makes them so bad. LOL.... ;-)

monty924 said...

Aww, too bad so sad

Nickelpeed said...

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Overplayed their hand!

monty924 said...

I'm happy dancing with all of you :))

Nickelpeed said...

Well, they gave it to the other 2, so they could talk the other couple in to using it. I hope not, though.

David said...

LOL, Justice prevails. =) Serves them right for using the express pass for the wrong reason.

Nickelpeed said...

However, with this happening to the guys, it might be a bad luck incentive for them to use it to target another couple.

Nickelpeed said...

Could not have happened to a better couple. Maybe they'll see the error of their ways.

Nickelpeed said...

I would never trust any of them. Justin and Diane have to know the boys won't abide by a handshake.

monty924 said...

Going toe to toe now

monty924 said...

I would have probably done the painting

Nickelpeed said...

Can't hit it as hard as a golf ball, though, guys.

Ed in Ohio said...

Croquet! Finally something I think I could handle LOL!

Nickelpeed said...

Me, too, Ed. I love playing croquet. Used to play it as a kid all the time.

SueGee said...

haven't played since I was a kid either LOL

monty924 said...

WooHoo

Ed in Ohio said...

As a life long golfer I would enjoy taking on those pros

Nickelpeed said...

These boys just do not like Justin and Diana at all. That's pretty bad.

Nickelpeed said...

We used to play croquet all the time when I was little. The game died out in America. I don't know why. It was so darn fun.

monty924 said...

I know Penny... I'd love to know if it's more than what we've seen or not. It ticks me off!

SueGee said...

A lot of houses just don't have the croquet lawns anymore. Big and flat.

monty924 said...

I remember not being good at croquet and even worse at golf... and I'm a bowler. Go figure. Most of my friends who are good at bowling are good at golf, but not me. I only got the bowling gene. :))

Nickelpeed said...

Yeah, Monty. They can't be showing some stuff. I wonder if Justin is so mouthy, he's just too hard to take in even small quantities. Or, the boys from Texas are just very competitive and arrogant. Who knows.

SueGee said...

I grew up playing softball all day. The big ball with no mitts. But used to be able to play most sports. (except football)

monty924 said...

Come on Green Team

Nickelpeed said...

I was good at bowling, too. Haven't been in years, though. My best friend's father owned a golf course when I was growing up. The family still owns it. I would like driving the golf cart, but the golf part was agonizing. After getting a 72 on nine holes, I decided golf was not for me. LOL. Still like driving the golf cart, though.

monty924 said...

That was nice... I hope the boys return the favor

SueGee said...

Looking at the clock this has to be a "keep on racing" kind of week

Ed in Ohio said...

No U-turn.......Classy move???

Nickelpeed said...

I am so glad Justin and Diana got there first. They really are good hearted. And, they are still playing. LOL.

monty924 said...

Penny, I can't even drive the ball off the tee very well. Went to the driving range with my ex and hit and entire bucket of balls before I hit five. I suck at golf

David said...

Yep, looks like Jackie was correct, a non-elimination or a keep on running week.

monty924 said...

Will the Texans and Green Team team up???

Ed in Ohio said...

LOL Nickel 72 is a good score.....for 18 holes!!

Don't bowl much anymore. Back in the day had 185 avg.

Nickelpeed said...

Dang, now we have to wait until next week. I work next Friday, so I won't be here. I work next Wednesday, too, so will miss the Survivor blog, too. Darn.

Jackie, thank you so much for hosting us. Scritch Vincent's ears for me.

Won't be back on the blog until the 28th. Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Nickelpeed said...

No, Ed, it was 72 for 9 holes. That's bad. LOL.

Ed in Ohio said...

I don't have much confidence in my Cheerleaders. Most shows I don't even know they're there!!

David said...

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a great weekend. =)

Ed in Ohio said...

I know Nickel....just kidding!

Jackie said...

They have a lot of great challenges this season!

Thanks for coming by!

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks Jackie! Feel Better!!

As my homie says.................Go Bucks!

monty924 said...

LOL @ Penny. I'm sure I'd shoot a 72 for five holes.

Night folks and thank you Jackie. I hope you feel better soon and give Vincent a scratch and a kiss from me.

GO BUCKS!! Tomorrow will be a DARK OUT instead of a WHITE OUT

Nickelpeed said...

I went back and read it, Ed, now I get what you were saying. LOL
