The Amazing Race Blog Party - February 19, 2016



Ready to race from your couch? As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll post the major happenings live. Refresh the page to get the latest! However, as it always is ... the real party is in the comments area. Please join in on the fun! (And bring tasty beverages and snacks!) I'm still a bit iffy on the team names, so please bear with me!

The Magnificent Margo (and Mom) have made the random picks for the blog pool and here they are ...
Tyler & Korey-P- Paula Bell, Bruce & Ray, SueGee
Burnie & Ashley- Buzzmaam, Delee
Erin & Joslyn- Brian, Margo, Rbennie
Sheri & Cole- Donna in FL, Merrilee, Becky
Zach & Rachel- Sharon N, Nana in NW
Dana & Matt- Grandi, Nicklepeed
Jessica & Brittany- Donna in AL, Monty924
Marty & Hagan- Jackie, Willie J
Scott & Blair- Meb, Jennasmom
Kurt & Brodie- David, Ed in OH
Cameron & Darius- chrob61, PDXGranny

Amazing Race fans ready? Let's GO!

Teams are flying to Columbia ... a first for the show. Uh-oh. My blog pool pick team is on the last flight.

Roadblock - Who is a hot mess?
Teams must submerge themselves in a mud pool at a volcano site and retrieve a satchel with an emerald. Some of the satchels have other rocks or gems in them. Korey dropped his coming down the volcano and had to go back. Still, the teams on the first flight are all finishing the Roadblock before the last teams get there.

After they finish the Roadblock ...
Detour - Pop-Up has them building a shelter which needs to be approved by locals. Parilla -- cooking and serving a barbecue type meal. Heh. Tyler and Korey beat out alpha male team Kurt and Brodie in building the shelter. They're on the way to the Pit Stop. My poor blog pool gals are getting frantic stuck in last at the Roadblock.

For their Speed Bump, Scott and Blair must help local fishermen pull in a fist net and retrieve the catch.

Okay, Matt and Dana are the first ones to bicker.

Pit Stop --
1. Tyler and Korey - won a trip to St. Thomas
2. Kurt and Brodie
3. Burnie and Ashley

Uh-oh. Cameron and Darius missed finding their clue. They better get it together!

4. Dana and Matt
5. Joslyn and
6. Jessica and Brittany
7. Zach and Rachel
8. Sheri and Cole
9. Scott and Blair

The brothers pass Hagan and Marty who were running because they let their cab go.

10. Cameron and Darius
11. Marty and Hagan, Philiminated in tears.

There goes my blog pool random pick. Now I'm on my own!

Hi Jackie, Sharon and SueGee!!

SueGee said...

60 minutes tonight Jackie :o)

Jackie said...

Hey peoples!

Jackie said...

Thank you, Sue. I figured that. ;-)

SueGee said...

Hi Monty! Hi Sharon!

Sharon N said...

Hi everyone!
I decided to pop in for a few laps before the shows starts here in an hour. :)

monty924 said...

Weather got up into the 60's here today. Felt like a heat wave. :)))

SueGee said...

I'm leaving on a jet plane for Iowa tomorrow morning. We have had 70's all week until today. It is warm for Iowa in Feb - but I still think I will be cold.

Becky said...

Hey Jackie, Sharon SueFMonty. Sue, I brought chocolate cake for dessert. I don't think I will be staying long, it was a very tiring day.

SueGee said...

Thanks Becky! Chocolate cake is always good!

monty924 said...

It will be close to 70* tomorrow. Hopefully Iowa won't be too chilly :))

monty924 said...

Yummy cake, Becky!

David said...

Hello everyone. =)

The cake was for desert? Whooops. But it is yummy.

Becky said...

Thank you, Monty. ( (fingers crossed) baked it this morning. Okay, okay, my speciality is Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple pie. Which, I will add won a bakie contest that I did not enter in the contest. I took it, but told the minister's wife what it was and it wasn't to be judge. She laughed and, unknown to me, and it won first place!

SueGee said...

Becky try the Claim Jumper pies. Much better than Mrs Smith's LOL Might win you a blue ribbon!

monty924 said...

Hi David. That pie sounds good too, Becky. I always make Mrs. Smith's pies and the Deep Dish Apple is awesome.

monty924 said...

I really like the brothers. They're going to be the hard luck team this season.

SueGee said...

My favorite is apple crisp. Will have to make some for my son when I'm in Iowa.

Becky said...

Nasty dirty challange. Poor girls. First a horrible cab and now this. I hope the stone the first guy dropped is not thelast one.

monty924 said...

I like any kind of apple pie, LOL. My favorite pie is cherry but apple is a close second.

Jackie said...

I love that pie, Becky!

Becky said...

David, try to have to confess to a room for of Baptist that the award winning dessert was not from scratch! They still laugh about it.

David said...

LOL Becky. I prefer cobblers myself, less dough. Blueberry and Black berry.

SueGee said...

Looks like I have a good team this round! Go Tyler & Korey!!

David said...

I want a free trip to St. Thomas, or free trip to just about anywhere. lol

monty924 said...

I'd take a free trip to somewhere really warm and green

monty924 said...

Yay, 5th place right now.

Jackie said...

My blog pick team is vying for last and I think I'd rather the other team stay in the race.

Becky said...

I am surprised the last two guys didn't build. Jackie, the judges did too. So did Mrs. Smith when I wrote them about it.

monty924 said...

That's my hope, Jackie. I just like the brothers so far.

David said...

Dang UPS. Had to go get a package delivered to my neighbor that was mine. Must be a new driver or didn't want to drive the 1/4 mile more down the road.

monty924 said...

That's so funny, Becky. Did they send you coupons? They should have :))

monty924 said...

Come on guys

Becky said...

Oh, no, they are losing because of no cab! Watch and learn

monty924 said...

Man, that was sad right there. I feel bad for Mom and Daughter but I'm happy for the brothers.

Jackie said...

Welp, my blog pool team is first out! It just shows you how much influence I have here!

Becky said...

Oh, yes, Monty. They sent tons of coupons. They also featured me in their annual report. They were going to have a campaign "When they will think you did it!"

SueGee said...

Hope to see you all next week!!

David said...

Tough way to be first out.

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a great weekend. (sneaks off with some chicken and a slice of cake)

Jackie said...

I'd rather the brothers stay in. They seem like nice guys who should have a chance even if they didn't show it tonight. I think Hagan and Marty would have been out early no matter what.

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting. I had planned on skipping the show. Glad I didn't. I have a ball on your blogs -- even though I drop off topic from time to time.

monty924 said...

Becky, that is so funny and so awesome, LOL! Thanks to everyone for the fun hour tonight.

Jackie, great job as always and everyone have a great weekend. See you all on Wednesday. Safe travels, SueGee!

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by, everybody!
