The Amazing Race Blog Party - April 1, 2016



The show is starting! As you all know, it's been off for a few weeks due to basketball. (Grr.) 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!)

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
Sheri & Cole- Donna in FL, Merrilee, Becky
Zach & Rachel- Sharon N, Nana in NW
Dana & Matt- Grandi, Nicklepeed
Scott & Blair- Meb, Jennasmom
Kurt & Brodie- David, Ed in OH

Philiminated:
Marty & Hagan- Jackie, Willie J
Cameron & Darius- chrob61, PDXGranny
Jessica & Brittany- Donna in AL, Monty924
Erin & Joslyn- Brian, Margo, Rbennie

Amazing Race fans ready? Let's GO!

Teams are on their way to Armenia. All teams are on the same flight. So, any one could win this leg ... theoretically. There is an Express Pass waiting for the winner of the leg. The teams are bunched waiting to purchase opera tickets. They're not going to see the opera -- their next clue is hidden in the theater.

Teams have to climb a gazillion steps next -- Cascade.

The Alpha Boys are leading the pack, followed by Cole and Sheri.

Detour: Thread - Make a rug or ... Bread - making traditional bread. Both tasks are difficult.

Tyler/Korey and Blair/Scott are the last ones out of the theater.

The Alpha Boys are the first on their way to the next clue. No real surprise there. They have to take a certain bus and pick up the clue along the roadside at a stand.

Roadblock -- Who's feeling drained? They have to do an oil change. Only two cars at a time can be on the ramp.

Alpha Boys are heading to the Pit Stop.

Pit Stop:
1. Kurt and Brodie - won Express Pass (to be used before the 9th leg)
2. Burnie and Ashley
3. Zach and Rachel

Sheri at first didn't have the tool to loosen the oil filter. Then she keeps trying to loosen it in the wrong direction. That might cost them the leg/race (dependent on whether it's a non-Philimination or not). We're probably due for a non-Philimination. But I could be wrong.

4. Dana and Matt

Scott helps Sheri!

5. Scott and Blair
6. Tyler and Korey
7. Sheri and Cole -- NON-PHILIMINATION!

They're immediately going to start on the next leg!

Yay... we're back on Fridays. Hi Jackie and all who arrive.

Jackie said...

Hey there, Monty. I hope people remember it's on! I saw on FB that Penny (Nickelpeed) fell and went to the ER. She was going to come. I hope she's okay.

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and Monty.

Jackie said...

Hey Becky!

David said...

Good evening Jackie and everyone who manages to remember. =)

I forgot until just now myself. I was looking through channels to see if something was on tonight and saw TAR was coming on.

I got Mongolian Stir fry in chicken and beef, extra spicy.

Becky said...

Oh, no. Thanks for letting us know. Did she say how badly hurt?

David said...

I hope Penny is OK. That is terrible news.

Becky said...

Hey, David.

monty924 said...

Hi Becky and David. Hate to hear that about Penny. Hope it isn't serious. :((

monty924 said...

Sounds great David. Love the Mongolian Barbecue near my brother's house. Yummy!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Everybody! Hey Hommie!

After a 2 week hiatus I have to refresh my memory on who the players are.

SueGee said...

Howdy everyone!! Better late than never I always say!

Hi to Jackie & Vincent, Becky David Monty!!

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Nickelpeed said...

Hi everyone. Thank you Jackie. I just wanted to check in, not staying.

Took a really bad fall today. I'm okay, just in a lot of pain. Flat on my back, drugged up, so I'm kind of out of it. I'll pop in a little later.

Ed in Ohio said...

All the best Penny!

SueGee said...

Take care of yourself Penny!!

monty924 said...

Thanks for checking in with us here, Penny. So sorry about your fall but the important thing is that you are okay (sort of). Prayers for quick healing and a speedy recovery.

Jackie said...

I saw that on FB you posted you went to the ER. I'm glad you're okay-ish.

monty924 said...

Hi Homie and SueGee. I know what you mean Ed. I'm trying to remember who's who myself, lol.

David said...

No Stella for Penny tonight, she got the good stuff and doesn't need any more. =)

Hope you get better quick. =)

Becky said...

When I saw that guy vacyyming I thought he might have the clue.

Becky said...

Enjoy the "high" Penny. As we tell our Beagles -- "Heal!"

monty924 said...

I'd love to do the weaving. Used to have my own six harness loom but haven't done anything in decades. I think that would be better than the bread.

Becky said...

Two of my favorite teams are still looking.

monty924 said...

Weaving on a harness loom is easier, LOL

Nickelpeed said...

David said...

Tyler and Corey are usually fighting for the lead but now at the back of the pack, not good.

I forgot my pick was still in this, lol Gooo Alpha dudes.

~~Silk said...

Somewhere in the world there is a Moroccan carpet with some knots badly tied by me.

Becky said...

Good, my team is in second right now.

Becky said...

The instructions said "take a bus". Won't there be a penalty for those who took a cab?

monty924 said...

I got lost there for a second. Are the going to the square to find the bus or did they just make a big goof?

Nickelpeed said...

Oops posted twice. Thanks everyone. My leg is no broken, so that's good. They used an ultrasound and found a few tears and knots. My thigh is a balloon. lol. Now I know how baseball players feel. My gosh, this is painful! I'll talk to you all later...

David said...

If they did that then there should be Becky. I can't tell as the show comes on here in 25 minutes so I can't help there.

Ed in Ohio said...

Transportation seems to be very important in these races. Planes, trains, boats, taxis, & today buses

monty924 said...

Brodie and Kurt are having fun this leg

Jackie said...

Gee, a Roadblock I could do! I worked in a service station during college summers.

monty924 said...

she reminds me of Trista Sutter from the Bachelor and Bachelorette

David said...

LOL Jackie. =)

They have the teams working for Jiffy Lube now.

monty924 said...

Take care Penny and get well for Wednesday night. HUGS

SueGee said...

I used to actually change my car's oil back when I was very young & poor

Becky said...

That was nasty of them of that team not to explain how to take a filter off. nThey are now dirt in my book.

monty924 said...

Yay Ed and David!!

David said...

Yay, goooo Alpha dudes. lol. If they were not my pick I don't think I would be rooting for them though. =)

monty924 said...

Righty tighty, lefty loosey

Becky said...

They took the cab to the bus, David. SueG, That's why you have fathers, brothers and a husband! One time my husband suggest that he show me how to change a flat in case I ever had one (we lived 50 miles from work). I told him I wouldn't need it. He asked why not? I told him if I had a flat I would open the hood and peer in. The first man who drove by would say look at the idiot woman thinking you can change a tire from under a hood and would change if for me. Sure am glad I didn't have to try that logic out!

Ed in Ohio said...

The 'Alpha Boys' are lookin' good....................for now!!

Becky said...

Monty, you are teaching me a lot!

David said...

I have my tractor torn apart in my garage rebuilding the engine. I don't think I will ask any of the teams for help. =)

Becky said...

See why I like Scotrt so much!

monty924 said...

That was sweet of Scott.

Ed in Ohio said...

She finally got some help!

Becky said...

Please do not be an elimination leg.

Becky said...

WONDERFUL~!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

That was nice!

Jackie said...

I'm glad it was non-elim.

monty924 said...

Yay, good for them!

Fun show tonight. Thanks everyone for the company and thank you Jackie for the coolest place to hang out on a Friday night. Have a good weekend everyone.

Jackie said...

Thank you for coming by!

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting. See you mates next Wednesday.

SueGee said...

See you Wednesday night!!

David said...

Lucky for them. =)

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a great weekend.

Ed in Ohio said...
