Ready? Let's GO! 

Teams are flying to Krakow, Poland. They have a Travelocity product placement in buying their tickets. I prefer the gnome. 

Detour: Mine has them pushing salt in mines and pick up wood beams for fortifying mine walls. Music has them accompanying street musicians, then busking. 

Justin and Diana remain in the lead. They finished the mine task and are on their way to the next clue. They go through the Schindler Museum and reflect on the Jewish people killed in Poland under Nazi occupation.

Roadblock: Who can handle a big order? They have to prepare a tray from a list (written in Polish) and deliver it. 

Uh-oh. Team Texas is lost trying to get to the Detour. They make quick work of it.

Justin got the order right first time.

Pit Stop:
1. Justin and Diana -- Also won a trip to China. U-Turn ahead.
2. Kelsey and Joey
3. James Earl and Denise 

All of the teams have checked with someone else on the dishes. The girls are lost. She didn't even ask. Finally she checks with someone. Meanwhile, Chris is doing poorly. The Texans just finished the Schindler tour. Okay, they're there again. Josh is working with Tiffany. Whoops! Chris got it and now either the girls or the guys will be last.

4. Chris and Logan

Josh lets Tiffany go first with the platter of food.

5. Tiffany and Krista
6. Josh and Tanner

NON-Philimination! The boys are safe. Speed Bump for them ahead.

Hi Jackie. I need a mental health break from the news coverage. very sad evening.

Prayers for Paris

Anonymouse said...

Mouse in the House! Hey Jackie, Monty and whoever else strangles in.

Prier pour Paris

monty924 said...

Hey mouse

Anonymouse said...

Overturned double Decker tourbus in San Francisco as well.

Jackie said...

Hey, youse guys! I just heard the news. We're kind of newsblind at my workplace.

Anonymouse said...

I have nephew there.

monty924 said...

Yes, heard that too Mouse. A lot of bad news today.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and all the rest of y'all. (If Jackie uses a N.J. accent, then I will use my Southern drawl.

Anonymouse said...

Cheerleaders will be interesting here. Unless They Get Team Texas To help

monty924 said...

Looks like it will be quiet here tonight. Just the three of us.

monty924 said...

Sorry, make that four. Hey Becky!

David said...

Good evening Jackie, Monty, Mouse, and everyone else who arrive.

Yes, sad day for Paris. The number is much higher than when I first head about it a couple hours ago.

monty924 said...

Team Texas is in trouble

monty924 said...

Hi David. Yes, it keeps growing too.

Anonymouse said...

Welcome Becky and David.

Becky said...

I have not heard any news today. I overheard someone say that terrorists had hit in Paris, but no details. We were having a garage sale today. And will have it again tomorrow. I am exhausted!

Anonymouse said...

Multiple attacks in multiple places. Soccer stadium where president was, took a whole music theatre hostage. Shootings at a mall and at a restaurant.

monty924 said...

That was hard work. I think I would have done music.

David said...

Hope your Garage sale is going well Becky. =) Take a load off and have a nice cool one.

monty924 said...

Yes, Becky. Suicide bombers, shootings, hostages in about six different places around Paris. They've closed the borders. Scary situation. My niece in Texas has a nephew (other side of the family) studying this year in Paris. She said he's fine but lives around a mile or two away for the concert hall where the hostages were being held.

Becky said...

Justin and Diana are one heck of a team.

Anonymouse said...

Almost exactly where my nephew is. Wonder if it's the same program. He's a grad student.

monty924 said...

This kind of task always trips them up

Becky said...

If I had even one cool one, David, I wouldn't be able to watch the show. The sale is going very well. One half of our double car garage is Christmas decorations.

monty924 said...

The name of school is Université Paris VII Denis Diderot.

David said...

The band "Eagles of Death Metal" was playing so there are going to be a lot of young people as casualties. So sad. Never heard of them but they are said to be an American band.

monty924 said...

Yeah, my brother just let me know that. He said most of the dead have come from that concert.

monty924 said...

Denise cracks me up. I started out not liking her much, but she's growing on me.

SueGee said...

Howdy. Just remembered so I stopped by. I'm surprised you even have regular shows on TV tonight. Just news news and more news here

SueGee from the LeftCoast

David said...

LOL Becky. I remember working myself like that when I worked for a year straight, 12 hour days, 7 days a week. One drink of anything and I would fall asleep right where I was. Made a lot of money but it about broke me mentally and physically.

SueGee said...

re: the tourist bus in San Francisco - they think the driver had a heart attack, hit some scaffolding and it came tumbling down on the bus, cars and pedestrians. No deaths that I have heard of, but lost of injuries and a big mess.

Becky said...

Our granddaughter went to Paris and Germany to study for a semester. It was required for the honors program at her college.

Anonymouse said...

I think he's at the University of Paris which they call Sorbonne

Anonymouse said...

He's a grad student in french literature so Paris just made sense

Becky said...

David, you must have been very young to do that.

Anonymouse said...

Even I know what kugal is and I'm not Jewish and I live in Lancaster pa

monty924 said...

I would love to see that, but how sad. I went to the Holocaust Museum in DC in 2013. Even knowing about it my entire life, I still walked out of there just shell shocked.

monty924 said...

Not sure what her nephew is studying. She didn't say.

monty924 said...

GO TEAM GREEN

monty924 said...

Don't be cocky Justin!!!

David said...

Becky, I was in my early 30's and we were building an Intel chip manufacturing plant. The one good thing about it is that you had not time to spend any of the money you were making. I would go for weeks without even bothering to cash my checks because I just wanted to go home and sleep by the end of the day.

David said...

Dang Green team are kicking butt this season. Wonder if they were giving us a clue about maybe winning when they sent that message to Jackie. =)

monty924 said...

I wouldn't mind that. They're my team, LOL

Anonymouse said...

I think the Texans are going to get u turned even if they pass the cheerleaders

Anonymouse said...

Classy move

Anonymouse said...

Thanks Jackie! See everyone Wednesday

Jackie said...

That was nice of Josh and, it could have cost them the race. It was like a karma thing going on.

monty924 said...

Well, wonder if anyone will U-Turn the Texans next week if they don't get Team Green first???

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

monty924 said...

Thanks, Jackie for hosting tonight. Have a great weekend, everyone, and will see ya'll on Wednesday.

Becky said...

I have become very interested in reading about the Holocaust and people who survived. Amazing.

I couldn't help but think that perhaps Germany wewlcoming all the people fleeing the past few weeks are trying to attone for what the Nazis did.

David said...

Speed bump and also a U-turn ahead. Not looking good for those guys. They were so strong at the beginning.

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a great weekend.

Becky said...

Thank you for hosting, Jackie. Now I am going nighty-night. See you Wednesday.

Sharon N said...

Show just started a bit ago here. :) It's a "bye" week for my hockey team, so no games this weekend and I get to watch tonight! My team got the boot last week, but I still come here to look at Jackie's report and read everyone's remarks.

Nickelpeed said...

I worked late. I was suppose to get off by 7, but didn't get off until 40 minutes later. Can't believe I missed it!!!

I will definitely be at the Survivor blog, Wednesday!!

Nickelpeed said...

Just finished watching. Justine and Diana are so strong. I hope that's not a bad omen for them. I know that they will be the first ones u-turned if they do not get there first.

The boys were so nice to let the girls ahead of them. Karma was good to them this time.

When I was in Germany, I visited a few concentration camps. Just very sad. They gave a tour of Dachau and I just couldn't go in to the moving theater. I couldn't get myself to pay $5 to see what the Nazi's did to the Jews and the Poles. It made me cry.

I also went to Ann Frank's house in Amsterdam. You want to talk about small. Holy cow. Just all sad.

I do not like the Paparrazi. Blah.
