Ready? Let's GO! 

Teams are headed to rural town in Argentina. Josh and Tanner have the added problem of Tanner's injured hamstring. Or is it Josh's injured hamstring? One or the other! 

Josh and Tanner keep up their campaign against Justin and Diana. Now they're promising the unused Express Pass (after they use one) to whatever team U-Turns them. 

Roadblock: Gaucho Grill. Who is smoking hot? Hanging racks of beef to be flame-grilled. It looks like street fair food I see in NYC! 

Oh. It's Josh's injured hamstring. Thanks to Tanner calling him by name. 

Josh and Tanner are done first. The dancers are the only ones not at the Roadblock yet. Joey and Kelsey through. Justin's cockiness has cost him. Chacattack passed them. Justin finally made it through the Roadblock.

Detour: Horse or Carriage. Polo or detail a carriage. Both entail delivering their horse or horse and carriage to get their next clue. The polo horses they have to dress are fake.

Uh-oh -- everyone is through with the Roadblock and Ernest and Jin haven't gotten there yet! ChacAttack has to go back because they didn't read their clue and they need to retrieve a buggy whip.

Whoa! The dancers got the meat done on the first try! Will they have a chance? (I like them.)

Teams seem to be getting lost on the way to the Pit Stop.

Pit Stop:
1. Tanner and Josh - won a trip to Cambodia
2. Justin and Diana
Phil warns of a Double U-Turn as he knows the two teams are in contention.  
3. Kelsey and Joey 
4. Jazmine and Danielle
5. Denise and James Earl -- 30 minute penalty because Denise shouted out what James needed to do in Roadblock. 

Tiffany and Krista forgot the whip to their carriage and have to go back for it. 

5. Logan and Chris take over the spot.
6. Denise and James Earl 
7. Cindy and Rick
8. Tiffany and Krista
9, Ernest and Jin -- Philiminated. (Sigh.)

Remembered this week. Hey Jackie.

Anonymouse said...

At least we can root for who we want now.

monty924 said...

Hi Jackie and Mouse. I brought a pot of New England Clam Chowder and a tray of cheddar & garlic biscuits.

Jackie said...

Him Monty and Mouse! Garlic biscuits? Mmmm!

monty924 said...

It's my Red Lobster knock off biscuits :)))

Jackie said...

True Mouse. I'm kind of leaning towards the dancing guys, but the only team who have even irked me a minor bit isn't all that annoying. I'll wait. I'm sure someone will be annoying!

Anonymouse said...

Actually I found our team . annoying

monty924 said...

I wonder how team Texas will do tonight with the injury. They do have the pass though.

Anonymouse said...

They should let us vote a team onto BB and other onto Survivor

monty924 said...

I hope Justin's cockiness doesn't come back to bite them

Anonymouse said...

She named him James Earle. Did she want him to be serial killer?

monty924 said...

Mean, mean, mean

Anonymouse said...

He threw the meat on the ground

Jackie said...

Those flaming racks are a staple at many street fairs in NYC.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Jackie, Monty, & Mouse! Just tuned in (was watching golf & lost track of time). Looks like they're having a cook-out.

Anonymouse said...

Is this making anyone else himgry?

Anonymouse said...

Hungry

monty924 said...

COme on Justin

monty924 said...

Hey Buckeye Homie! Mouse, this is definitely NOT making me hungry.

monty924 said...

Finally

David said...

Hello Racing Peeps. =)

Friday really is a bad time slot. I wonder if they want to cancel the show but still get enough viewers even on Friday's that they can't justify it yet.

monty924 said...

Hey David! I agree... I liked it better on Sunday nights.

Ed in Ohio said...

I didn't see how my Cheerleaders were doing with hanging the meat???

Anonymouse said...

Me three

monty924 said...

Justin certainly loves life, but I'm now seeing why he's annoying to the Texans

monty924 said...

These challenges are so detail oriented

Ed in Ohio said...

I agree about Friday nights!

David said...

I would like to see it on Sunday's again but there is just too much on it would cause my DVR to explode trying to record everything with Walking Dead starting back up this week. =)

Anonymouse said...

As long as it isn't wednesday

Jackie said...

Yes, Walking Dead Sunday night! Yay!

Hi, David and Ed!

monty924 said...

I used to bowl on Sunday nights, so I missed it often, but I think it was a better night. I know what you mean about the DVR though, LOL. I always had to tape TAR and two shows that followed because it usually ran so late from golf or football. :))

SueGee said...

Howdy everyone!! A little bit late but I did remember!! I started watching baseball and lost track of time

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Jackie said...

I like Blue Bloods on Fridays, but it's a tough TV night for many. I work on Saturdays, so Friday night isn't really a big social go out kind of night for me. I stay in and watch TV (or read or something).

monty924 said...

Hi SueGee, grab a bowl of clam chowder

Jackie said...

Hey, Sue. Ed had the same problem, but with golf.

SueGee said...

I'm just waiting for Monday night and Fargo coming back!! Aces~

Jackie said...

Gosh, they're overrun with dogs there!

SueGee said...

Thanks Monty. Chowder sounds good tonight (its 80 here right now but cooling fast)

SueGee said...

I would love TAR to be back to back with Survivor on Wednesdays....

Ed in Ohio said...

Oh I can always switch back to golf later. They're playing in South Korea and with the time difference it will be on all night .......til 4AM.

monty924 said...

Turkeys?? LOL

Anonymouse said...

Hope there's a u turn

monty924 said...

No Mouse, they will u-turn my team :((

David said...

Haven't these people watched the show before? Someone always messes up not reading the clue all the way through. Forget something or taking a cab when they have to walk. sheeesh. lol

monty924 said...

Go Green

Ed in Ohio said...

It's probably a good thing none of the racers were vegetarians!

Anonymouse said...

Go texas, I think

monty924 said...

Well they made it first, injury included

Anonymouse said...

Not by much

monty924 said...

Ugh, double u-turn

Anonymouse said...

Texas better skip the task to get ahead of the uturns

monty924 said...

Did you catch the Temple of Angkor there? A little Survivor cross reference

monty924 said...

Momma gets on my nerves

Ed in Ohio said...

Sure are a lot of dogs roaming around!

monty924 said...

That sucks!

Anonymouse said...

Mine too

David said...

Wow, a penalty for shouting at the teammate. I think that is a first.

Anonymouse said...

30 minutes doesn't seem.like that long

Jackie said...

David - Because she didn't shout encouragement, she shouted what he needed to do! I don't care much for her the more I see her.

monty924 said...

I think they'll survive the penalty, but yes, she did help him with the challenge

David said...

I have seen that before, possibly to a lot lessor extent, I will have to see it when it comes on here, but I still think that is a first. =)

monty924 said...

The dogs are the star of this episode, LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

I think my girls are in trouble!!

Ed in Ohio said...

NO they just made it! LOL

monty924 said...

Aww... I liked those guys

Anonymouse said...

See yall wednesday

Jackie said...

Aw, I liked them.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

David said...

Awwww, that is too bad. Back to living in the car for them.

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a great week.

monty924 said...

Thanks for hosting us tonight, Jackie. Small party but great company. Everyone have a good weekend and will see you for Survivor on Wednesday.

SueGee said...

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty Go Bengals! (vs Seattle)

monty924 said...

Jackie said...
