The Amazing Race 27 - October 2 Blog Party


I see you remembered the show is on tonight! Er, either that or you're looking in after the police broke up the wild blog party!

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!

The Marvelous Margo (quite possibly with Mom) has made the blog pool match-ups --

Adam and Alex #TheCousins -Anonymouse, DKNYNC, Jackie, Kelsey, Sharon C
Cindy and Rick #ChacAttack - Donna in AL, Donna in FL, Jennasmom, Sharon N
Denise and James Earl #TeamAlabama - Becky, Ginniejulie, ORKMommy, Willie J
Ernest and Jin #TheDancers - Glenn, Marlo, Nancerella, Russ
Jazmine and Danielle #TheTrackStars - Joanie, LafayetteLisanne, Margo, Merrilee
Justin and Diana #TheGreenTeam - Chauncey, Cherry Pie, Monty924, Nickelpeed
Kelsey and Joey #TheReporters - beachmom, ChicMc, David, Grandi in MD,
Logan and Chris #ThePaparazzi - Delee, PDX Granny, Rbennie, SueGee
Tanner and Josh #TeamTexas - Buzzmaam, chrob61, meb, ML
Tiffany and Krista #TheCheerleaders - Brenda, Brian, Cheryl in NC, Ed in OH, Nana in NW

The TMZ gals were Philiminated last week and aren't a part of the blog pool. I don't believe any of us shed any tears about them leaving.

Are you ready to race? 

Teams are headed to Buenos Aires, Argentina. They have to find the church where Pope Francis was baptized. A few of the teams are working together using strangers' phones to find the information. This is as they wait at the airport. Tanner and Josh are NOT working with Justin and Diana. They don't trust them and think they're a strong team they need to beat.

At the right church, they have to wait and will get admitted in the order of arrival. Stunningly gorgeous church!

Justin and Diana get there first. Detour -- Cartenaros or Fletero -- loading and carting cardboard or transporting a statue. Most are choosing cartenaros because, as one person put it, it's finite. But there are only eight openings for that. Jazmine and Danielle can't do the recycling cardboard. A few other teams are already doing the statue -- they have to put it back together once delivered.

Justin and Diana are maintaining their lead and are the first done. They gave their cart to Jazmine and Danielle. Logan and Chris are second.

Roadblock - Must learn a Tilted Tango. Oh my. It's a tango done on the wall. "Who wants to get sideways?" They are suspended with rappel wires.

Justin and Diana are headed to the Pit Stop after Diana nailed the tango. Justin is a bit loud in his exuberance which is ticking off the other teams some. Logan and Chris are on their tails. The alpha male team is not doing so well at the tango. Ah, they made it through.

Pit Stop:
1. Justin and Diana - also win a trip to Morocco.  
2. Josh and Tanner - Josh injured his leg in a footrace
3. Denise and James
4. Logan and Chris 
5. Cindy and Rick
6. Tiffany and Krista 
7. Kelsey and Joey 
8. Jazmine and Danielle
9. Jin and Ernest 
10. Alex and Adam ... Philiminated

Aw, there goes my blog pool team. I won't have trouble finding another team to cheer on on my own. And, it won't be Josh and Tanner.

Hi Jackie and everyone who arrives later.

Jackie said...

Monty - you and the others who have Justin got a tweet which I put on the blog pool match-up post.

monty924 said...

Oh, I see I got the engaged couple, or are they married? Sweet

Jackie said...

He saw the Twitter post I made on the pool yesterday.

SueGee said...

Hi Jackie & Monty!! I'm here with a platter full of shrimp!! (they call them prawns out here)

Let the show begin!!

SueGee

monty924 said...

That's awesome Jackie. Justin sent you a tweet? I have to go look now. Hey SueGee

Jackie said...

He retweeted me on his Twitter and commented.

monty924 said...

That is so cool. I agree we are the smartest (LOL) but it was random draw. Fingers crossed that's a good sign. :)))

Becky said...

Hey, Jacvkie, Monty, SueG and others. Boy, I had trouble getting here. Hey, Vincent, I knew every one else would bring food and drink, so I brought you some cat nip. I don't know why, but none of our cats ever cared for the drug of kitty choice.

SueGee said...

My brain keeps waiting for the screen to refresh...duh I need to do it LOL I think my brain is tired tonight...too much shopping today with too many people everywhere!

SueGee

monty924 said...

Ernest and Jin are kooky, but I like that.

monty924 said...

Hey Becky

SueGee said...

I have the paparazzi and will have to form an opinion of them after another show or two

monty924 said...

Go Team Green

monty924 said...

OMG, SueGee... the shrimp (prawns) are yummy. I haven't had dinner so it hits the spot. I'm making a pot of clam chowder soon. This weather feels like winter already. Brrrrrrr

Nickelpeed said...

Go Green Team!!!!

SueGee said...

We need to send Jackie and Vincent a life raft just in case for this weekend.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hey all! Junpin' in a little late. Stayin' home tonight to watch TAR!

After all these years I finally get to hang with the 'cheerleaders'(my pool pick) LOL! But I do know now that my chances of winning the pool again are slim & none!!

Hey Homee :))

Jackie said...

Some trees and poles are causing a few outages, but it's not that horrible inside!

SueGee said...

That's great as long as you don't need to go anywhere!!

monty924 said...

Hey Ed!!! Jackie, I hope the worst of the storm passes you by.

100kg is like 220 pounds. That's a lot...

Becky said...

I forgot to write down who I had in the pool so I had to check out and go luvck. It took forever to get back to post.

I forgot last week, rather I thought it was on Saturday. I will miss next week. Don't mind that because we will be with our kids.

monty924 said...

Penny, I see where you saw the tweet. Justin thinks we're smart :)))

Ed in Ohio said...

Yes Jackie hope the weather isn't too bad this weekend! Looks like So. Carolina's gonna get the brunt of the rain & further north up the coast more wind.

SueGee said...

Becky - you can go to the top of the comments and click Show Original Post and not have to leave the page

SueGee said...

You can send all extra rain to me!! I can't begin to tell you how dry it is here

monty924 said...

Ed, I have friends vacationing this week on the beach. The rental company told them they should return to Ohio, but they're riding it out. Non-refundable... that would be my luck

monty924 said...

SueGee, if only I could send some your way. Rain wouldn't be so bad if the temperature wasn't so cold.

Ed in Ohio said...

That's a bummer Monty. I've been to Myrtle... not sure what I would do if I were in that situation?

SueGee said...

We have mandatory water reductions and since we let the lawn die last year, we are down 2/3 from the base year of 2013. My husband was a professional gardener and letting the lawn died was hard!

SueGee

monty924 said...

I'm a chicken in bad storms, so I'd be headed back to Ohio crying the entire way

Ed in Ohio said...

That's some crazy dancing!

monty924 said...

Go GREEN

Becky said...

It sounds nasty up there, Jackie. I am waiting for our first really cold front. Then the hurricane season is usually gone for the year. Stay in and stay safe.

Nickelpeed said...

I wonder why he can't stand Justin?

I watched last week's episode on demand but didn't pick up on why the others dislike the Green Team. Anyone know why?

SueGee said...

I grew up in Illinois and was scared to death of the thunder & lightening. As an adult I love to see it flash across the flat prairie!! It is very rare here in northern CA so I miss it!

Nickelpeed said...

Stay safe Jackie. I hope it doesn't get worse for you.

Nickelpeed said...

SueGee, I can't imagine just letting my lawn die. However, my husband hates cutting the lawn, so he wouldn't mind doing so. LOL

Jackie said...

Monty - I think it's because they know they're superfans and he's on the vocal side.

Jackie said...

Here we have the nor'easter coming through now with wind and rain, then Joaquin edges with wind and rain from Sunday to Tuesday. Already some flooding and we still have four days of rain ahead.

monty924 said...

Lightening isn't my biggest fear, but I'm not crazy about it either. I lived through what today would be classified as an F5 tornado when I was five years old. Storms have always scared me to death since then. Especially the wind.

monty924 said...

Thanks, Jackie. I didn't know if something happened last week and I missed it or what. :))

Ed in Ohio said...

Lighting only scares me when I'm on the golf course...which seems to happen quite often. It's the wind I worry about the most.

Becky said...

Did anyone ever say why everyone dislikes the green team?

SueGee said...

We had a tree fall over into the house when I was around 5 or so. Not sure if it was wind, lightening or a combination. I'm just glad I wasn't home!!

Nickelpeed said...

I don't find Justin obnoxious, just really overly excited. He's loud, but he doesn't annoy me as much as the Texans because they complain all the time.

monty924 said...

I heard that, Ed. If I'm outside, I'm terrified of it. We got caught walking up the National Mall in DC during a storm with wicked lightening back in the 90's and I didn't think we'd ever get back to the car soon enough.

Nickelpeed said...

Good, I'm glad they got it, finally.

SueGee said...

There really must have been something they didn't show with the Green Team to make people dislike them

monty924 said...

Pulled a hamstring... That karma thing

Nickelpeed said...

They are so rude, really, they are rude.

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting. This has to be much nicer than those rug rats on Big Brother.

Nickelpeed said...

I think the only people complaining about the green team are the Texans. And, many times, it takes only one person to get people riled up and doing the same thing.

monty924 said...

I wouldn't run it bearfoot.

monty924 said...

*barefoot

Ed in Ohio said...

Austin would barefoot it!

Becky said...

Thanks for letting us know why they dislike the green team.

monty924 said...

Speaking of BB, LOL. Spencer and McCrae's interviews are going up on Youtube. They posted Johnny Mac, Steve and Austin's so far. I've watched them all. Didn't learn anything new but they're all pretty good interviews. You can search it: On The Block with Spencer and... it should bring up their channel. I like their podcasts because they're actually past players.

monty924 said...

LOL... ^5 Ed :))

SueGee said...

My internet just went down then came back uggghhhhh

See everyone Wednesday!!

Nickelpeed said...

I like these girls. I'm glad they made it.

Don't mind these guys either.

My heart goes out to them.

monty924 said...

Aww, I liked those guys. :((

Nickelpeed said...

That's sad. Poor guys. That dance was just not good for them.

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, thank you so much for letting us come by. Love this.

Please stay safe.

See everyone Wednesday. Can't wait.

monty924 said...

Well, this was a fun night. I don't think I made one TAR pool party last season. Thank you Jackie and everyone for the company on a Friday night. I think I'm going to make some hot chocolate now and catch up on shows I've missed this week. See everyone Wednesday night. Stay warm up their in northern OH, Ed.

GO BUCKS!!

Becky said...

SueG, the problem was getting back to the comments was what was my problem. I had to see the cousins go, but am glad the homeless guys are still in the race. Again, Jackie, thanks for hosting. See you at the Survivor. Congratulations on getting a response from Justin. Isn't he on the green team?

Jackie said...

They were my blog pool team. Wah. I generally like the teams so far ... maybe not the alpha male team so much, but I'm not outright disliking any at this point.

Ed in Ohio said...

Have a great weekend everyone!

Stay safe Jackie!

See you all Wednesday

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by! I think we're in for a good season.

Ed in Ohio said...

Oh Yes Monty!...................Go Bucks!!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

I think the alpha male team has too much testosterone.

David said...

Hi everyone. =)

Awww missed you all. Show is still on here, woke up just in time for the start here. A little karma to bring those alpha males down a little bit from their attitude.

Thanks Jackie. =)

Hope to make it on time next week.

Happy to be able to catch up, had a high school homecoming game/ halftime show to attend, was just a bit chilly.
Thanks all.
