Ready? Let's GO!

Uh-oh. Another U-Turn ahead. They're traveling to the next clue by tuk tuk. Joe and Kelsey think that if the Green Team is smart, they'd U-Turn them. 

Roadblock: Full of Hot Air. Blow up balloons and deliver them to a wedding.

Chris and Logan are arguing ... again. And he's thinking marriage? Sheesh! Aw, Diana brought stick-on tattoos for kids. How sweet is that? Justin is out in the lead, the only one out for delivery as I update this.

Justin and Diana are headed to a bookstore for the next clue. Will they use the U-Turn on anyone? Joey and Kelsey are in second. Chris and Logan are arguing still, but hanging onto third. 

Yay! Diana and Justin U-Turn Logan and Chris. They don't want to  U-Turn their friends Joey and Kelsey and think Chris and Logan would U-Turn the girls.

Detour: Bring the Groom - deliver a groom to a wedding or Bring the Fun - playground for the kids at the wedding. 

Joey and Kelsey are impressed that Green Team didn't U-Turn them and say they're going to work with them until the final three teams. 

Eek! A creepy guy grabbed Tiffany's balloons as she was on her way! Thankfully, she got the clue for half her load instead of having to go back.

Justin and Diana have the clue to the Pit Stop. Justin is having a ball with the kids!

Pit Stop:
1. Justin and Diana AGAIN - Each won $5,000
2. Joey and Kelsey 

Sigh. It looks like Logan and Chris will at least beat Denise and James Earl, if not the Cheerleaders. Hmm. Maybe not -- Logan is struggling. But they've already completed the other detour.

3. Tiff any and Krista
4. Logan and Chris (sigh) 
5. James Earl and Denise -- Philiminated

I'm surprised they lasted this long. They grew on me after I initially didn't care for Denise. Good job! 

The brief promo for next week hints that Justin and Diana will lose the leg ... so that probably won't happen.

Hi Jackie and all. I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.

Jackie said...

Hey, Monty! Mine was fine, hope yours was a good one!

David said...

Good evening Jackie, Monty, and everyone else who show up. =)

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I won't be having mine until tomorrow because of work requirements.

I posted a link to Stephen Fishbach's Ponderossa video at the end of the Survivor Blog Post if anyone is interested.

Hey, David. I'll check it out.

monty924 said...

TAR producers are bound and determined to get the Green Team U-turned.

monty924 said...

Curious what they'll do. THey haven't u-turned anyone yet.

David said...

Quite a few little changes this season. Extra u-turns being just one of them. I don't mind little changes like this but they really need to move TAR to another night from Fridays.

monty924 said...

I agree, David. I wish it would go back to Sundays.

monty924 said...

Wow, they did it.

monty924 said...

The cheerleaders have the worst luck

Jackie said...

I wouldn't mind seeing Logan/Chris get the boot.

monty924 said...

Me neither. THey're competition for the Green Team.

David said...

I wouldn't either Jackie. I am surprised the Cheerleaders are still in this. They have had good luck with some of the tasks though, right up their alley.

monty924 said...

I wouldn't miss their arguing, for sure

Anonymous said...

Huh, must be a matter of perspective. ..seems to me TAR is trying to insure their victory. ..if they are always in 1st place, how can they be u-turned?

Jackie said...

Anon - All it would take is if Kelsey and Joey got a minute ahead of them at some time.

monty924 said...

I don't believe the producers help or sabotage any of the teams. I was just joking about this being a third U-turn leg.

monty924 said...

With the edit, it's hard to tell who is really in last place

Anonymous said...

I'm not pulling for Joey and Kelsey because they U-turned the boys when they were already in last place. The GreenTeam think they are their friends. unaware that it they had gotten to that u-turn opportunity first they would have u-turned them.

David said...

I noticed that the U-turn's only had space to U-turn 1 team this year instead of two. I don't remember if this was the same last season but I do know they used to have the ability for 2 teams to be U-turned.

They are going to need a couple of good bunch-up points to slow down the Green Team it looks like at this point.

monty924 said...

bummed for Denise and James Earl. She grew on me over time. :((

Jackie said...

David - That was the Double U-Turn

Trivia fact - The producer I know who used to do the competitions on BB 4-6 and TAR, created the U-Turn. (Jym Buss)

monty924 said...

Thanks, Jackie. Will see ya'll on Wednesday. Have a great weekend and .....

GO BUCK! BEAT BLUE!!

David said...

Too bad for them. I also didn't think they would make it as far as they did.

Thanks Jackie. =)

Everyone have a great week.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

I am having trouble getting into the Amazing Race because of the Green Team. It just makes it boring seeing them win week after week after week. Oh well, here is hoping they lose next week. It isn't that I don't like them (I don't but that isn't my point). It just gets boring seeing the same team come in first. Zoe in California.

I missed this. I was at my MILs and totally forgot!! I'm glad that Justin and Diana won, but I'm wondering if they can stay winning. It's all them right now, but it doesn't mean they are going to win.

Sad to see James Earl and Denise go; would have rather seen Logan and Chris leave.
