The Amazing Race 27: November 6 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!

Keep in mind that last week was another "to be continued" leg, but here's the latest blog pool update as per The Marvelous Margo:

Cindy and Rick #ChacAttack - Donna in AL, Donna in FL, Jennasmom, Sharon N
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

Ready? Let's GO! 

The teams are on the way to Rotterdam (Amsterdam?) and Phil told them to keep their Fitbit tallies handy. James Earl and Denise are still stuck at the rapping detour. Finally, they got through! 

All the teams were booked for the same train, but a few teams snagged earlier trips. Once at their destination, they have a bunching point. Justin and Diana did get there first, not that it mattered. The bunching has them entering in groups fifteen minutes apart. At least Josh and Tanner explored Paris. Uh-oh, ChacAttack found out that Rotterdam is NOT Amsterdam.

The clue they get hints they should walk -- "every step counts." Justin and Diana are arguing about taking a taxi or not. Other teams are taking taxis to the water taxi they're supposed to board.

Roadblock amongst windmills -- "Who wants to pick sunflowers?" They have to find a Van Gogh sunflowers painting and match it up with one in a windmill.

Joey and Kelsey have it first. The Fitbit comes to play. They have to take their highest heartrate from the last leg and pick the difference between what it reads doing this in tulips. 

From the Roadblock, it's on to a distillery via water taxi. Justin and Diana have fallen way back, as have Josh and Tanner. 

Detour -- Ship or Skip -- Ship has them on a simulated mission in a ship, skip has the Double Dutch jump roping. Tiffany and Krista nailed the jump roping and are headed to the Pit Stop. Justin and Diana (redeemed their time) are heading there from Ship.

Pit Stop:
1. Justin and Diana - They tell Phil their amount of steps 31,000+ will be turned into dollars. They also get a massage. 
2. Kelsey and Joey
3. Krista and Tiffany
4. Josh and Tanner
5. Logan and Chris 

ChacAttack took the wrong tram. 

6. Denise and James Earl 
7. Cindy and Rick -- Philiminated

~~~~SPLASH~~~~ Hi Jackie, thank you for hosting us. Scratch Vincent's ears for me!!!

David said...

Hello Jackie and all who arrive. =)

Nickelpeed said...

Maybe some didn't remember?

Jackie said...

Hi, guys!

David said...

I didn't remember until about 10 minutes ago while going through the channels setting my DVR to record stuff. lol

Jackie said...

So ... who's going to go see Misery on Broadway with Bruce Willis and Laurie Metcalf tomorrow?

Me. Yay!

David said...

good for you Jackie. =) I hope you have a great time. I have never been to NY as an adult. Only went through there as a very young kid.

Nickelpeed said...

It's so sad sometimes when they do that. It doesn't give the 1st place team any advantage at all.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Penny, David and others who arrive.

monty924 said...

Hi everyone... I miss last week and start watching the show tonight and forget to head to the pool. What am I going to do about me? @@

monty924 said...

Jackie, have a great time tomorrow. A Broadway show is definitely on my Bucket List. I think I'd love this one too.

Nickelpeed said...

Enjoy yourself, Jackie. Sounds like a lot of fun. It's hard to imagine Laurie Metcalf as Annie. She's such a funny lady. LOL

David said...

Hi Becky. =)

Watched the video Monty posted at the end of the survivor post of Kass arriving at the Ponderosa. She is as full of herself as she ever was.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky, David, and Monty!!

monty924 said...

Oh, and I have some SPICY Chex Mix. I love that stuff and just found a new recipe with a kick to it. Awesome!! Add in tobasco sauce.

Why are my Greenies fighting??? Grrrr

Nickelpeed said...

I missed the video. Monty, where did you post it?

monty924 said...

Yes, she is David. The "Queen" of Ponderosa, LOL

Nickelpeed said...

I know, Monty. They need to stop!!!

monty924 said...

Penny, I posted it on the last Survivor pool party post.

David said...

The link to the Youtube video is in the last post on the survivor show blog.

monty924 said...

Just an OT post. Do you all get annoyed when somebody posts on FB that a celeb died today and the usual "RIP, I'm so sad" and you know they passed away like five years ago? A lot of my friends are posting about Sparky Anderson. He died in 2010. It's like, why didn't you remember him back then?????

Jackie said...

David - I've lived close enough to NYC to go daily, but it's often months between going into the city.

David said...

Hi Monty. =)

Yes, she thinks that because she is the first member of the jury she will somehow be able to control everything. lol

monty924 said...

LOL, she screams better than the goat :)))

Jackie said...

Who's Sparky Anderson?

Nickelpeed said...

Thanks Monty. I'll go back and look. I take it Kass is overrating her self worth?

monty924 said...

I think Kass will have a rude awakening when she realizes she isn't all that this time around. I think this bunch will let her know she isn't ruling their game on the jury too :)))

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi folks! I didn't forget & have been watching....but just got off the phone!

Green Team are not too happy with each other tonight & my Cheerleaders are doing surprisingly well.....so far!

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, it does, Monty. I've had to correct poeple so many times. They post these without reading the story. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

They're all making the same mistakes with the painting.

Ed in Ohio said...

Jackie, Sparky Anderson was a Major League Baseball Manager

Nickelpeed said...

Now the greenies need to catch up.

monty924 said...

Oh, sorry Jackie. Sparky Anderson was the manager of the Reds back in the days of the Big Red Machine (Bench, Rose, Perez, Morgan, etc.) and he passed away on November 4th in 2010. Evidently everyone so sad by the obituary they are posting today didn't bother to look at the actual date. Just annoys me. Don Knott's has died several times too, you know. ;)

Becky said...

Jackie, I love New York and Broadway shows. It is tied with Branson as my favorite vacation place.

The green team is getting on my last nerve. I do not like the nit-picking by the guy. As Aretha Franklin used to sing R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

monty924 said...

Ed... hi there homie! Sorry about the wooping last night. I'll be nice here, LOL. I wasn't so nice on FB last night to my Brownies relatives and friends. :)))

David said...

Oh nooo, my pool pick is actually in the lead, Kelsey and Joey, not good for them as I am bad luck for pool picks. lol

Nickelpeed said...

Sparky Anderson was probably one of the best Major League Baseball Manager. Very volatile, hence the name Sparky. LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Double Dutch or Simulator? Uummhh for me no doubt....the Simulator!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Monty! The Bengals looked really good last night as well as the Ben-'Gals'!! The Jungle was jumpin!

Congrats 8 & 0!! Hope they keep it going!

monty924 said...

Yes he was, Penny. I'm only poking fun of people who are just now, five years later, figuring out that he passed away. Where were they five years ago?

But off of that topic...

monty924 said...

Thanks, Ed. I'm enjoying this season, finally :)))

Ed in Ohio said...

Jackie, It's been a while since I was in New York but one of the most memorable things I had was my Taxi ride across the bridge and in & out of traffic trying to make it to the airport on time. I've driven race cars before but that Taxi ride was scary!!

Enjoy your Broadway show!

Nickelpeed said...

Yeah, greenies!!! Good going. The jump rope was pretty good for the girls. I figured anyone who could do the jump rope, it was the cheerleaders.

monty924 said...

I couldn't definitely do this one, but I doubt I'd do it well now. I considered myself a jump rope champion in grade school.

monty924 said...

Yay, GREEN

Nickelpeed said...

This papparazi guy is so dense.

Ed in Ohio said...

GreenTeam is dominating!

Nickelpeed said...

Monty, I loved to jump rope, but never did the trick stuff. It's amazing.

Yay for green team!!!

monty924 said...

I love it... I hope his tweet to Jackie is a sign. Love the Green Team, but they need to stop fighting. Grrrr

Ed in Ohio said...

Yay Cheerleaders! Go Girls!!

Nickelpeed said...

Uh oh, Justin and Diana have a U-turn ahead of them, very soon.

monty924 said...

Penny, I loved doing the Double Dutch. I was pretty awkward motorically when I was a kid, but I could always jump rope with the best of them. Go figure, LOL

Anonymous said...

I can now understand why other teams don't like the green team.

Nickelpeed said...

I do not mind Justin. He's a perfectionist and very competitive. I just do not like it when he gets nit picking on Diana.

SueGee said...

Ok, an hour ago I remembered. Then got busy and forgot!! Ten lashes with a wet noodle for me!

SueGee from the LeftCoast

Jackie said...

Ed - I won't be taking any taxis this trip. Bus to the city stops by my apartment, the theater is about two and a half blocks from Port Authority. If I decide to roam a bit, I still have money on my MetroCard. I'd take the subway.

SueGee said...

Have fun tomorrow Jackie!!

monty924 said...

Who else besides me loves Scorpion?

Jackie said...

I never could double dutch. My only jumproping "trick" was criss-crossing my hands (and the rope).

David said...

Hi SueGee =)

Can't believe my pool pick is in second place ATM. Can I finally break my losing streak? Only if they can get past the green team methinks.

monty924 said...

The scariest taxi ride I ever took was in Las Vegas. I literally kissed the sidewalk when I got out of the cab.

SueGee said...

I saw the Kass 'Queen of the Ponderosa' episode too! She is delusional I think.

Nickelpeed said...

Justin is just very, very competitive. Nobody likes the best team They'll do everything to kick them down. It's human nature. He has to be number 1. I don't mind him being that way. They are there to win a million!

Nickelpeed said...

I like Scorpion, even though I'm behind in my episodes. LOL

Jackie said...

I'm not overly upset that Cindy and Rick are out. I didn't love them or dislike them -- they were just kind of there for me.

Nickelpeed said...

I work next Friday, but hopefully I get off early, then I'll be here.

I will see everyone Wednesday, though, for Survivor!

HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY TOMORROW, JACKIE!!! Thank you for hosting us!! Appreciate it.

Ed in Ohio said...

Wrong tram...too bad. Nice couple!

G'Night Folks! Have a Good Weekend!

Homiee GO BUCKS!

Thanks & Enjoy the show Jackie!!

Nickelpeed said...

BTW, I lived in UpState NY until I was l8. I still consider it my home, but I have never been to NYC. Want to see it so badly!!!

David said...

Thanks Jackie =) Have a great time on Broadway.

Everyone have a great weekend.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

monty924 said...

I agree with you Penny. Even with a U-Turn, they could still be up with the pack. Teams who've had to do Speed Bumps have won in the past.

GO TEAM GREEN

Thanks Jackie for the cool place to hang out and will see you all on Wednesday. Have a great weekend.

Yes, like how he won't stop yammering at her, which does nothing except break her concentration.

I think she is just playing to the cameras, enjoying her additional 15 minutes. ..which, of course, means she will attempt to sway votes & create chaos.
