The Amazing Race Blog Party - February 26, 2016



The show is starting! As it 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

Amazing Race fans ready? Let's GO!

Teams are running all over from place to place picking up clues. They have to go to San Diego for one (not California) and to the catacombs.

Detour - Tickets -- collecting tickets on a bus. Tejo has them throw a disk rock thing on some sort of bang type fireworks dohickey. It's kind of like cornhole with a bang. (No, that's not how Phil explained it.)

Dana and Matt continue to be the only team arguing. Sigh. Oh geez ... the alpha male team, Kurt and Brodie, actually chest bump.

Gah. One of the women on one of the female teams (the one whose person was claustrophobic during the prior cave challenge) is about to go into a full-burst anxiety attack in the catacombs. It's Jessica and Brittany -- not sure which girl it is, though.

The alpha boys get to the Roadblock first. "Who's left holding the bag?" They have to find bags by the same designer as one given to them, searching a gazillion bags and several vendors.

Kurt and Brodie are headed to the Pit Stop.

Pit Stop:
1. Kurt and Brodie - won a trip to Greece
2. Tyler and Korey

Oh noes! Rachel counted the bus money wrong. She and Zach have to go back and finish that Detour.

3. Burnie and Ashley
4. Dana and Matt (He thinks they need to work together better. Y[think?)

Jessica is trying to help Cole on the Roadblock even though she's ready for the next clue. Finally she leaves him be. Rachel and Zach finally finished the Detour.

5. Jessica and Brittany
6. Sheri and Cole
7. Erin and Joslyn
8. Scott and Blair
9. Zach and Rachel
10. Darius and Cameron -- Philiminated.

Really nice guys, but The Amazing Race isn't their strength!

Hey, mouse!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Mouse! Hi Jackie! Thank you for hosting us! Appreciate it greatly!

monty924 said...

Hi Jackie and mouse. I brought grilled shrimp and hush puppies. Dig in

anonymouse said...

Hey Penny, Monty!

monty924 said...

Hey Penny

Jackie said...

Hey, Monty and Penny!

anonymouse said...

That looks fun.

monty924 said...

Eww, a rat. That would creep me out.

David said...

Hi Jackie, Penny, Monty, mouse, and everyone else who shows up. =)

They really need to move this from Friday night.

Nickelpeed said...

Just like caps. LOL

monty924 said...

Cornhole only with rocks and bombs, lol

anonymouse said...

Yup

monty924 said...

Hi David, I agree. I preferred it on Sunday night.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Everyone!

My guys Kurt & Brodie aced that rock throw!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Monty and David!

monty924 said...

I feel bad for my girls.

Ed in Ohio said...

I agree Monty, this time of the year Sundays would be much better!

monty924 said...

Homie!!

Nickelpeed said...

I can sympathize with her. I don't like anything that tightly closed in.

David said...

Hi Ed. =) Goooo Alpha males (as Jackie is calling them) lol

Ed in Ohio said...

Hey 'Home Gal' ^5

monty924 said...

Yes! I used to have to tape in on Sundays (because of bowling league) but I have Sundays free now. Much better than Friday.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and everyone. Better late than never.

anonymouse said...

Welcome David, Ed and Becky

monty924 said...

Penny, I've never been claustrophobic but I know people who are and panic attacks are horrible. I used to have them when I flew. Thank God I eventually got over that.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hey David! Yes our guys are showing their competitive juices! Jackies description of Alpha males would be apropos

Nickelpeed said...

Here they go again...arguing!

monty924 said...

Hi Becky. Grab some shrimp and hush puppies.

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Mouse!

David said...

With the demise of American Idol coming, networks will be looking to Tuesdays again for what to air. They should move TAR to Tuesdays.

Nickelpeed said...

He's doing this wrong. It's by the designer, they don't have to look alike.

monty924 said...

That would be okay too, David.

David said...

LOL, most guys are not known for their fashion sense. Could be tough on them if they don't figure it out.

Nickelpeed said...

I hope they find someone. I'd hate to see them leave. Come on!!

monty924 said...

Good way to get the pesos, LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Speaking Spanish should be an advantage

monty924 said...

yay for Brittany and Jessica

Nickelpeed said...

They need to realize it has to be by the same designer, NOT the same design. LOL

monty924 said...

Way to go team David and Ed!! Woohoo

Ed in Ohio said...

Kurt & Brodie....numero uno!!

anonymouse said...

Seems like a ridiculously short leg.

Nickelpeed said...

Something's up, unless some of the teams take a long, long time?

monty924 said...

Becky, have to tell you that I went grocery shopping last night and had to get a pie to bake, lol. I settled on Marie Callender's Dutch Apple.

David said...

lol, go Kurt and Brodie. Still half the show to go. Something must happen to extend this.

anonymouse said...

Still, no flights, no trains or long car rides or lengthy challenges. Seems odd.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh no! That's horrible for them.

Jackie said...

I think maybe because it's the first time the show has been to Columbia, they might be overdoing it there a bit.

Nickelpeed said...

Mouse, there might be contestants who take a long time to get a task done. That's the only thing I can think of what's happening.

Ed in Ohio said...

Uh oh! Mis-count on the pesos......gotta go back

anonymouse said...

But they set the pitstops up in advance

Nickelpeed said...

Something must be up, then.

monty924 said...

I like that they're being helpful but they need to get checked in!

monty924 said...

5th again. I'll take it

Nickelpeed said...

Darn, I hate to see either of these teams eliminated. That's sad. Hopefully, something's up.

Becky said...

Come on Cole and Sheri.

Nickelpeed said...

Man, this challenge is stumping most of them.

Ed in Ohio said...

Lot of help between teams tonight!

monty924 said...

The other teams just got it much faster

monty924 said...

Oh nos

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh, that was mean.

Nickelpeed said...

Dog eat dog, I guess.

Becky said...

Ed, I noticed the same thing.

Nickelpeed said...

Is that a new voice for the gnome?

monty924 said...

Becky, my pie comes out of the oven right after the show. If we hadn't talked about it Wednesday night, I would have never thought of it this shopping trip. Yummy

Becky said...

Good, Monty. Next week you can bake one for the group. Or, better yet, two so we can have a larger slice.

Nickelpeed said...

These poor guys. Darn

monty924 said...

I hate this for the brothers

Nickelpeed said...

They can not be that clueless!!! Can they?

monty924 said...

Yes, Becky. I bought two last night. A dutch apple and a lattice cherry :)))

monty924 said...

Oh, Crap!!

Nickelpeed said...

Maybe it's a non-elimination?

Nickelpeed said...

Crap. That's sad. These poor guys. Darn it! Didn't they help people? Very sad.

David said...

Dang, didn't they say they were Mensa members? I guess book smarts not street smarts.

anonymouse said...

Thanks Jackie. Sent y'all Wednesday

Becky said...

I hate to see them lose but I am glad that Zack and Rachel (??) were safe. Jackie, thank you for hosting. See you next week.

monty924 said...

Dang!! Hate this. Thanks Jackie and everyone for the company. Have a great weekend and will see you all Wednesday. Now to get that pie out of the oven and let it cool. Thanks again Becky :)))

Nickelpeed said...

Well, Karma has a bad way of coming back to bite you. LOL

Jackie, thank you so much for hosting us. Will see most everyone next Wednesday; and so far, here next Friday!

Have a nice weekend, everyone.

Ed in Ohio said...

G'Night All! Have a Great Weekend!!

Thanks Jackie!!

Jackie said...

They seemed like really nice guys and their parents did a good job raising them. But, TAR isn't their thing, I don't think!

David said...

Thanks Jackie -)

Everyone have a great weekend.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!
