Ready to race?

Teams are off to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The traveling Travelocity gnome is promised ahead. All the teams are on the same flight. So, we're starting out even once again.

In the desert, they pick up their gnome and face the Detour. Race It or Oasis. Racing bikes against camels or leading camels to a camp. Sheri and Cole are lost as all the other teams are hitting the Detour.

The Alpha Boys made it through the all but impossible task of racing camels. But now they can barely walk.

They're the first ones to the Roadblock -- at Aqua Adventure -- getting into a shark tank and solving a puzzle for their next clue.

The Alpha Boys give up on solving the puzzle and use their Express Pass. It's off to Poseidon's Revenge. Oh my.

Cole and Sheri actually beat the camels on bikes. But they're lost again now.

1. Brodie and Kurt -- won a trip to Finland
2. Burnie and Ashley
3. Korey and Tyler

Dana and Matt are having a meltdown. If they don't get their act together, Sheri and Cole might pass them. That is, if Sheri and Cole don't get lost again.

4. Zach and Rachel
5. Matt and Dana
6. Sheri and Cole -- NONPHILIMINATION!!!

They're still in it! They will have a Speed Bump in the next leg!

Good evening Jackie and everyone who remembers TAR is on Friday's.

They REALLY need to move this to another night if they want the show to survive.

Jackie said...

Hi, David! I know Penny's working tonight, not sure of the others.

Becky said...

Hey Jackie and David!

David said...

Hi Becky =)

Becky said...

I HATE AOL! I HATE my computer! Ahhhh, I feel better after getting that off my chest.

Jackie said...

There's Becky!

Becky said...

David, what shift are you working now?

Jackie said...

Why do they even THINK they can beat the camels on bikes?!?!

Becky said...

Did they have a choice on doing this?

David said...

Still working graveyard. Used to it now and actually like it. I reversed my sleeping time so I am off work and awake about the same as I was before so I can watch TV and get things done. Just do it before work instead of after now. Kind of nice to take my time getting ready for work. =)

David said...

Goooo camels. Beat those guys. lol

SueGee said...

I'm not working, just cooking LOL

Hi Everyone! The ribs are done! The sourdough garlic bread is hot from the oven so help yourselves.

(Sorry I'm so late but when I retired I retired my watches too)

SueGee on the LeftCoast

Becky said...

This has been an awesome season!

Becky said...

Hey, SueG

David said...

Hi SueGee =)

I hope to do that in about 10 more years.

Becky said...

(Filling my plate)Yummy food!

Becky said...

I'm afraid my team is toast. Lost toast.

SueGee said...

Year after year this game comes down to bad cab rides or drivers with a poor sense of direction

David said...

I have noticed most of the bad cab drivers seem to be the older guys. I would take one look in the cab and pick someone else unless I had no choice.

Becky said...

She is melting down now.

Becky said...

Maybe my team has a chance.

David said...

My pool pick is still going strong, the alpha dudes. Having the express pass to use did not hurt either. lol

SueGee said...

they seem to be all having fun this year - until the melt down that is

Jackie said...

My pool pick was the first team out! I've forgotten what they look like even!

David said...

That is the first serious meltdown we have seen beside Sherri getting frustrated. These have been some good teams as far as getting along with each other.

Becky said...

Well, looks like they are still toast. WONDERFUL!!!

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting. Night all.

Jackie said...

I'm happy for them. Sheri and Cole are trying so hard!

Jackie said...

Thank you for coming by!

David said...

LOL, good for them. But this time they will have a speed bump to deal with. Becky survives for another week at least. =)

Thanks Jackie. =)

Everyone have a great week.
