The Amazing Race 27: November 20 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!

Last week was a non-Philimination (with Josh and Tanner last, facing a Speed Bump tonight), so The Marvelous Margo's blog pool remains like so:

Denise and James Earl #TeamAlabama - Becky, Ginniejulie, ORKMommy, Willie J
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

Philiminated
TMZ girls (not in pool)
Adam and Alex #TheCousins -Anonymouse, DKNYNC, Jackie, Kelsey, Sharon C
Ernest and Jin #TheDancers - Glenn, Marlo, Nancerella, Russ
Jazmine and Danielle #TheTrackStars - Joanie, LafayetteLisanne, Margo, Merrilee
Cindy and Rick #ChacAttack - Donna in AL, Donna in FL, Jennasmom, Sharon N

Ready? Let's GO! 

Teams are flying to New Delhi, India. They'll travel to the home of the Taj Mahal once there. U-Turn ahead. They're bunching at the airport.

Logan/Chris rat out the fact the girls U-Turned the Green Team. Then they lie once Justin asked the girls and said they didn't. The girls lied, too. They told Justin they didn't U-Turn Justin/Diana. 

Roadblock - Who's ready for laundry day? Wheel a bicycle full of dirty saris, wash them in the river and lay them out to dry. Josh and Tanner each have to do it as part of the Speed Bump. Kelsey and Joey finish first, then Justin and Diana.

Detour - Cans -- Load 120 oil cans and deliver or Candy -- make and deliver 90 pounds of candy. 

Logan and Chris are arguing. What a shock and surprise!

Tanner and Josh finally finish their double round at the Roadblock. 

Uh-oh. Justin and Diana are lost and they are/were in first place coming out of the Detour. Due to their team strength (and a bit of Justin's smugness), they're a target for other teams to U-Turn if they don't get through the U-Turn first. 

Ah, they make it to the U-Turn first and don't U-Turn any other teams. They're on the way to Moonlight Gardens to find Phil. Kelsey and Joey U-Turn Josh and Tanner thinking they'll make their own game a bit safer. 

Pit Stop:
1. Justin and Diana - Won a trip to Honolulu
2. Kelsey and Joey
3. Logan and Chris (boo) 
4. Tiffany and Krista

James Earl and Denise seem to be lost heading to the Pit Stop. Will the Texans be able to complete the second part of the Detour and catch up?  

5. James Earl and Denise -- they made it! 
6. Tanner and Josh -- Philiminated.

Hey Jackie and those to follow. Mouse in the house! Anyone but Green team!

Jackie said...

Hey, Mouse! I'll tell the cat to leave you alone.

monty924 said...

Howdy everyone... no Mouse, it' GO GREEN TEAM :)))

David said...

Hi Jackie, Mouse, and all who arrive. =)

I will be in and out as I finish up some work here. The show doesn't start for an hour in my time zone.

Anonymouse said...

Cmon Texas

Anonymouse said...

Don't make me root for Sparty

Jackie said...

I'm feeling a bit better about the Texans after they let the girls go ahead last week. I wouldn't mind if the quibbling Chris and Logan lost out this leg.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Mouse, Jackie, Monty, David, et all

I missed last weeks show & can't believe my Cheerleaders are still in it!....thanks to a little 'chivalry'.

Anonymouse said...

That's the only reason I like them

monty924 said...

LOL, Mouse!!!

Hi David, Jackie and my home boy! O-H

Nickelpeed said...

Hi everyone. No, no, Mouse, nobody but the green team!!! They are my pool pick. LOL I'm not a fan of the Papparazi, Logan and Chris.

Ed in Ohio said...

I-O !!

Hi Monty, Green Team is OK tonight....but NOT tomorrow!

Nickelpeed said...

Don't laugh like that Justin, it COULD be you. Show some humility!!!

monty924 said...

Not sure I like this side of Justin, but the Texans did pour it on pretty thick the first few legs of the race.

monty924 said...

^5 Ed!!!

Nickelpeed said...

The Texans were so nice last week. I do not like Logan and Chris.

They are such snakes. How horrible.

monty924 said...

See what I mean?

Anonymouse said...

^^Yup

Anonymouse said...

If the green team.uturns Logan and Chris all.is forgiven

Ed in Ohio said...

That's some traffic jam!

monty924 said...

Could be :))

Ed in Ohio said...

Down goes my cheerleader!

Nickelpeed said...

Yuck to doing the laundry in that river. Ewwww.

Ed in Ohio said...

Outdoor laundromat!

monty924 said...

I guess they have to do it separate

Anonymouse said...

At least they don't have to wash their own clothes in th at muck.

monty924 said...

True that ^^

monty924 said...

Wet clothes are heavy... I wouldn't want to do this one

Ed in Ohio said...

Wash machine with a stick!?

Nickelpeed said...

Texan has his mom do his laundry. Go figure! I knew a guy who never did laundry in his life until he went in to the military. He would let his clothes go a month, then he'd do them. We had laundry rooms guys and gals shared. I walked in to the laundry room to do mine and he had suds all over the place. He had put the entire laundry detergent in one wash. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

No, don't u-turn green team!!! But, that doesn't mean they'll get u-turned. Go Green!!!

David said...

Ewwww, I would be afraid of catching something from that river water.

I powered though my work so am done now. =)

Had a strange day. Had Old lady's hitting on me at the store. Once was a little strange but 3 different ones did. lol

monty924 said...

Editing is a little out of chronological order tonight

Nickelpeed said...

Did she say she's Christian and he's Catholic? Doesn't she realize he's a Christian, too?

Ed in Ohio said...

Nice blouse Phil...aahh I mean shirt

Nickelpeed said...

David - LOL. 3 times, eh?

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. Won't even try to name everyone since I am dragging in after all the posts.

Ed in Ohio said...

LOL David! I have experienced that a few times too! but not 3 in one day!

David said...

Yes, 3 different ones, at the Walmart which made it even stranger. lol

monty924 said...

David, you're just a stud! Own it :)))

David said...

^^ LMAO, definitely never would think of myself like that.

Becky said...

What kind of tranning did Justin and ??? do to get prepared? They are running away with this.

Becky said...

Diana

monty924 said...

Yay, Team Green

David said...

They ran a mock AR course they set up for themselves. I don't know all the details but they are essentially running the AR twice.

monty924 said...

This sucks for my team

Ed in Ohio said...

Uh-oh Green!

Becky said...

Bad cab driver may accomplish what no one else has been able to do.

Jackie said...

Becky - Justin is obsessed with the show. He's more than a superfan. He's been practicing for years.

Becky said...

David, how could they run a mock course? I thought they didn't get a clue to where they were going until they received a clue.

Becky said...

Oh, okay Jackie. Trying to accomplish every "project" done before.

Becky said...

Are Justin and Diana the "green team"

monty924 said...

Good for them. They're playing honest... that might not win them the race but I respect it

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, I didn't know he had been practicing for years. Good for them for not choosing to U-turn. It could come back on them.

Becky said...

Answered.

monty924 said...

Aww, that sucks too

David said...

First thing you do to practice for TAR, learn to drive a STICK. lol

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, Justin and Diana are the green team. My pool team.

Nickelpeed said...

So true, David. I never understood that.

Ed in Ohio said...

Green Team is dominating!

monty924 said...

They have so many honeymoon options now, LOL

Nickelpeed said...

I'm glad they're working things out. I like them. Justin gets a little cocky at times, and that could get him in the end.

I would not u-turn anyone. It always comes back on them. I always dislike hearing people talk about using it.

Nickelpeed said...

Somebody u-turned the boys??? That's horrible.

monty924 said...

Now the girls are gonna be out for blood and it's not the Green Team they're ticked at :)))

Nickelpeed said...

How mean. Why? Why would you do that? The boys were way behind anyway. Way behind. That's sad.

monty924 said...

Penny, it was pretty sh*tty. They were already way ahead and the boys were so far back.

monty924 said...

Karma will come around. They just bought themselves so pretty bad mojo

Nickelpeed said...

I never understood U-turning someone who was way in the back any way. The boy already had to do another task, so there was no way they'd move ahead because they were so far behind. Just mean.

monty924 said...

*some not so

David said...

LOL my pool pick just got a bunch of hate mail I am sure. If they had not been nice to the girls last week no one would care.

monty924 said...

The boys are strong and I'm sure they were just wanting to eliminate a strong team, but come on!!!

monty924 said...

Lol @ David. I'm sure too

Ed in Ohio said...

Can the boys pull this out????

Nickelpeed said...

I would rather see Logan and Chris leave, not either one of these last teams. Darn.

monty924 said...

Aww... Texans going home. Didn't like'm but this stinks

Anonymouse said...

Too bad, because the boys would have been out for blood.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, after what the boys went through, they deserve to stay, I'm sad.

Ed in Ohio said...

Nice guys last week...finished last this week

monty924 said...

I like more at the end of the race than the beginning. Nice comments going out.

Nickelpeed said...

Crap. That is sad. They redeemed themselves last week.

monty924 said...

Mouse, I think the cheerleaders are too and they aren't that threatening but you never know, LOL

Jackie said...

I wonder if the last two came in anywhere near as close as the show's edit.

Ed in Ohio said...

G'night all1 Have a good weekend!

Homiee -----'Hang On Sloopy' ..... O-H-I-O.....GO BUCKS!!

& Thanks Jackie!

Nickelpeed said...

Jackie, thank you for giving us a place to play! I'll try to get on my phone next Wednesday for Survivor. I'll be at my MIL's, so I won't be watching TAR, but I will join all of you on line.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERY ONE!!!!

David said...

They had an uphill battle this whole leg and almost pulled it off.

Thanks Jackie. =)

Everyone have a great week.

I posted link to wiglesworth Ponderosa video at the end of the survivor blog post.

Nickelpeed said...

monty924 said...
