Ready? Let's GO!

Teams are flying to Long Island, NY. (Or, as the locals call it, Lawn Guyland.) They're heading to Randall's Island, all teams were on the same plane.

Justin quibbled with his cabbie and let the cab go. He and Diana are at the Roadblock first -- a firefighting training exercise. "Who wants to play with fire?" Logan/Chris are on their tails with Joey and Kelsey only a few minutes behind. The other two teams have their cabs waiting. Oops to Justin. Call Uber?

After dong a rescue, they have to put all the capitols of places they visited in order. 

Justin is through first. They have to make their way to the site of the final race of the Triple Crown. Justin knows it's Belmont, so do I. The two waiting cabs won't take them. Now Kelsey and Joey are through, then Chris.

Uh-oh. Logan and Chris fight for Kelsey and Joey's cab. Now they're wandering around -- Logan and Chris, that is. They gave up the cab. 

Both Justin/Diana and Chris/Logan are taking different buses back to Manhattan to snag cabs. 

They will fly to the Hamptons in private helicopters to get the next clue. Joey and Kelsey are in the lead. Chris dumps his fireman pants and boots. Justin/Diana are in last place.

They're taking jetskis to a lobster boat for their next clue. They have to pull up seven lobster cages and put new ones in. Then it's a second memory test -- arranging flags of the countries visited in the proper order.

Joey and Kelsey are in the lead and know their flags order. Logan and Chris are stumped on the flags a bit. There's one extra flag to throw them off. Justin and Diana realize it, Kelsey and Joey figured it out. K/J off to the next clue first, with J/D right behind them. L/C stuck on the flags.

They have to assemble six Adirondack chairs and put them in order. 

Joey and Kelsey WIN THE AMAZING RACE! They didn't take second place for a change!

Justin cries some more with his second place finish -- he knows letting that cab go cost them the million. 

Logan and Chris are still arguing. 

Next season, it's all social media "stars" racing. 

No, Vincent and I weren't invited to partake.

Hi Jackie and everyone who shows up. I brought King's Hawaiian ham and cheese sliders hot from the oven and the bar is fully stocked!!

GOGREENTEAM

monty924 said...

Hey SueGee

SueGee said...

I brought some make it yourself french dip sandwiches on sourdough rolls!! Hope someone shows up with something to drink!

SueGee said...

Hey Monte!!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jackie! Thank you for hosting us. Can't believe it's the finale. All of these shows have been going TOOOOO fast!

I bring chocolate milk shakes and hot red wine.

GO GREEN. Problem is nothing lasts that long. I'm just hoping Logan and Chris do not win.

SueGee said...

Hi Penny

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Monty, SueGee, Nickel, & Jackie! Long Island here we come!

monty924 said...

The bar's fully stocked :)))

Nickelpeed said...

What's the rumor out there? Who do they say wins? LOL

Hi SueGee and Monty!

monty924 said...

Whohoo, my kind of drink Ed!!

SueGee said...

Some shows this season seem to be very rushed at the end...like The Voice, And Survivor has to go from 6 down to 3 real quick next week..

monty924 said...

Hey, Penny. I haven't visited the spoilers this season. Trying to keep it a surprise, LOL

Anonymouse said...

Hey Jackie, Sue, Ed, Penny and Monty. Mouse on the house! Let's go down annoying paparazzi!

Jackie said...

Hi, all! I haven't looked at the spoilers for this season, either.

Nickelpeed said...

Justin needs to stay humble. He has a hard time doing that.

Jackie said...

I think this might be the absolute strongest (not luckiest) three teams in the finale in years.

Nickelpeed said...

OOps, I also have Ferrer Roche chocolates, but I might not share them....I LOVE them! LOL

monty924 said...

Hey Mouse. Grab a sandwich everyone and a drink from the bar. Cheers to the Final Three!! Well, not Logan and Chris ;))

SueGee said...

This is as much of a surprise as I can handle. Drives my husband crazy so if he wants to know he has to flat out ask me.

Nickelpeed said...

I agree, Jackie. I do not thing Logan and Chris are that strong, but definitely the other two. Very competetive.

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty I meant Long Island New York for the finale (my bad!). But truth be told every time I vacation Long Island Iced Tea is my drink of choice!

monty924 said...

True that, Penny. My brother loves his cockiness, but that's because that was my brother in high school when he played football and baseball. Same kind of personality :))

Nickelpeed said...

Well, it will be a nice surprise for all of us. GO GREEN

Anonymouse said...

I can't believe no one's hit Chris yet.

monty924 said...

LOL, Ed. I caught it after I typed it, but same here. I only drink them on rare occasions... unlike when I was younger and could drink them all the time, lol

Nickelpeed said...

Justin, Justin....don't be rude.

Ed in Ohio said...

So who will it be tonight for the win?

Monty & Nickelpeed (Green)

or

David (Reporters)

or

SueGee (Paparazzi)

Good Luck to you all!

Becky said...

I brought a variety chips and dips. I am late because Google and I had to play the "password" game again.

SueGee said...

I love them all bunched together this late in the game

Nickelpeed said...

Monty, I'd like to say it's a NYC attitude, but not all are like that. Jocks can be like that, though. You have to be confident, but you don't have to be nasty.

Anonymouse said...

I don't think he knows he's nasty

Anonymouse said...

And I don't want to punch him.like I do Chris

monty924 said...

Cool task. I ran squad for eleven years and have nothing but respect for my brothers and sisters on the fire department.

monty924 said...

Hey Becky. The chips and dip go great with the sandwiches.

Hoping it's GREEN TEAM Ed.

Anonymouse said...

Yikes. Wonder shia cab left. Hope it wasn't Joeys

monty924 said...

Oh no... the curse of the taxi

Ed in Ohio said...

Taxi's always seem to be a problem. Even in New York!!

Anonymouse said...

:)

Nickelpeed said...

I have a funny story to tell about jocks. I can't remember if I told it. If I did, sorry to repeat.

I work at an entertainment center attached to a University. The universities women's and men's basketball team plays there. I was working a women's basketball game and I had the entire baseball team come in.

The first guy walks up and every time I went to grab his ticket to scan it, he would turn his hand over. He kept on doing this. The reason? He had just received his baseball league championship ring. I started laughing. I finally told him it was a beautiful ring. It was, too. Huge. Nice and shining diamonds. I just thought it was funny. He wouldn't give me the ticket until I recognized it. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, they have balls trying to take the cab. I sure hope Justin and Diana get a cab.

Nickelpeed said...

Here goes Logan and Chris again. Geesh.

Becky said...

I have been to NYC several times and less than four times at most I encountered the NYC attitude. One woman was particularly nasty because I asked the cashier where to find something. What was funny was that she had to get something else and thought I should let her back in line. I gave her my Southern Biotch attitude and pointed to the end on the line. That is the only one that really stuck in my mind. I told my friend well, finally I had encountered the NYC Attitude. She laughed and told me, well you gave it right back.

monty924 said...

Another one of my brothers graduated from UD (in the 70's) in Hara Arena Penny. That's a good story about the ball player. He was proud of his ring. :))

JoyzJenn said...

I hope, I hope, I hope....this bodes well for Kelsey and Joey!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Have those two argued on every episode??!!

Nickelpeed said...

Will they get a penalty for not taking a taxi?

monty924 said...

Oh, MAN

Nickelpeed said...

This does not look good for Green, Monty.

monty924 said...

I think so Ed. I missed a couple episodes but they've argued on all the ones I've seen.

Nickelpeed said...

OMGOSH, Just SHUT UP!!!!

monty924 said...

I know, Penny :((

Becky said...

I get tired of all the ugly talk from him.

Nickelpeed said...

How pretty. I've never been to NYC or the Hamptons.

Ed in Ohio said...

I have to say the Green Team does not lack in confidence!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky. You mean Chris? or Justin?

Nickelpeed said...

Not, good, not good for Green. They have to really move their butts. Truthfully, I just do not want Chris and Logan to win.

Becky said...

Chris.

Ed in Ohio said...

Memory challenge is usually a 'stumper'

Nickelpeed said...

I hope Green has a good memory. Or I should say, I hope Chris and Logan does not have a good memory.

Chris, Justin did not steal your cab. What idiots. I hope they feel bad after watching this.

Nickelpeed said...

This is where the men will probably take out their shoulders.

Becky said...

Penny, I don't want Chris and Logan to win either.

monty924 said...

Same here

I knew Chris and Logan would think they stole their cab

Nickelpeed said...

This is where they'll slow down because they forget. But, hopefully, the two good teams will remember.

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, Green catch up!!! Justin needs to quit being that confident. Just stop.

Nickelpeed said...

Joey and Kelsey are smart.

Nickelpeed said...

This is what gets me....I think every TAR, they have to do the flags. They should know that.

monty924 said...

This is a nail biter

Ed in Ohio said...

Looks like it's down to two!

Nickelpeed said...

Yep, but right now, Joey and Kelsey are ahead and I think they win. I won't be unhappy.

Yay, Adirondack chairs. My neck of the woods where I was born!

monty924 said...

My Dad built two of them that sat on my parents' porch my entire life. My baby brother has them now on his deck.

SueGee said...

They will remember their flags right after they learn to swim and drive a stick

Nickelpeed said...

True, SueGee.

monty924 said...

Justin....@@

Ed in Ohio said...

Diana's really coming through for Green tonight

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, Joey and Kelsey are really ahead.

Shut up, Justin. Don't do it. Maybe it'll be just desserts if Joey and Diana win. We'll see. They were doing fine until Justin and Diana came. It rattle them.

Becky said...

Have they ever had this many memory tests before?

Nickelpeed said...

Diana is a strong player. If she hadn't been there, Justin would probably be buried at a beach somewhere! LOL

Nickelpeed said...

I don't remember, Becky. The ones I did not like were the number ones. LOL

Jackie said...

I'd be happy with either of the teams doing the chairs winning. I was dreading a Logan/Chris win (thanks to Chris more than Logan).

monty924 said...

Same here, Jackie. I never like the bickering teams

Ed in Ohio said...

Green can't afford any mistakes

monty924 said...

Well, at least it wasn't Chris and Logan.

David said...

Hello everyone. =)

I am late for the blog but on time to watch the show here. Comes on in a few minutes.

Nickelpeed said...

Justin should not had said anything. That's what he gets for his cockiness. Congrats to Joey and Kelsey!!! They were first where it mattered.

monty924 said...

That damn cab did it. UGH :))

Nickelpeed said...

I agree, Monty. UGH

I hope Justin is decent and nice about it, though.

Ed in Ohio said...

Maybe David shouldn't know the ending

SueGee said...

But David is the pool winner LOL

monty924 said...

Aww, Justin. If there's another All-Stars they're sure to be on it. Great race GREEN TEAM

Anonymouse said...

Amen monty

Nickelpeed said...

Was hoping they did it. The Texas boys looked happy they didn't win. Oh well.


Still arguing.

Becky said...

Put on your Big Boy panties and suck it up, Justin. You have multiple trips. Be glad you are still standing. I would have smothered him.

David said...

Woooooot, I won the pool, =) lol

First for everything.

Nickelpeed said...

They definitely do have a lot ot work on.

Thank you so much for hosting us, Jackie. It is so greatly appreciated.

See you all on Wednesday night for the SURVIVOR FINALE!!!! Can't wait!!!!!

Becky said...

Jackie, thanks for hosting us this season. See you on Survivor.

monty924 said...

Congrats David!! woohoo Bragging Rights

Ed in Ohio said...

Congrats David!

Nickelpeed said...

Congrats, David!! Your team won when it really counted!!! I'm sad my green team didn't win, but of the other two, I'm glad Joey and Kelsey won!!!

monty924 said...

Thanks, Jackie!! Great season to watch along with all the fine folks here. See you all on Wednesday!

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty & Nickel your team ran a good race......just missed!

~~Silk said...

I wonder if anyone watches this later at home, and says, "Wow! I didn't realize I was such a nag/ such an ass/ sounded so shrill/ whatever."

Jackie said...

Thanks for a fun season here on the blog! And, congratulations go to David, the true winner of The Amazing Race (Blog Pool).

Nickelpeed said...

When's the nest TAR, March, April, or May? LOL

David said...

Thanks Jackie, been a great season. =)

Hope to make it on time for the survivor Finale.

Everyone have a great weekend.

Woooot for bragging rights. Brag, Brag, Brag.

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks Jackie!

Nickelpeed said...
