The Amazing Race: Blog Party - April 29, 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!)

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
Dana & Matt- Grandi, Nicklepeed
Kurt & Brodie- David, Ed in OH

Erin & Joslyn- Brian, Margo, Rbennie
Scott & Blair- Meb, Jennasmom
Zach & Rachel- Sharon N, Nana in NW

Caution! Double U-Turn ahead! 

Ready to race?

Teams have to go to an island for their next clue. And, indeed, there is a U-Turn ahead. Apparently, in the last leg, the teams were only fifteen minutes apart from first to last. The water is beautiful. A dancing monkey (which they have find) will give them the next clue.

Detour -- Haul or Harvest. With a canoe, harvest enough seaweed to cover a tarp. Or, safely deliver coconuts and four chickens.

Tyler and Korey are in the lead.

Double U-Turn -- Korey and Tyler U-Turn Brodie and Kurt. Burnie and Ashley U-Turn Korey and Tyler so that they can't U-Turn anyone else.

Roadblock: Who's feeling blue? A four-story drop into a blue lagoon.

The Alpha Boys are heading off to the second detour (harvest).

It turns out Cole has a fear of heights. Uh-oh. But he did it! Two other teams -- Korey/Tyler and Burnie/Ashley are heading towards the Pit Stop ahead of them.

Pit Stop:
1. Korey and Tyler -- won a trip on an Alaskan cruise
2. Burnie and Ashley
3. Dana and Matt
4. Sheri and Cole
5. Brodie and Kurt -- Philiminated

Brodie is going to make good with his date plans for Blair.

Have fun SueG

Jackie said...

Hello!

Becky said...

I almost forgot that the AR was on tonight.

Becky said...

Did you give Vincent the treat from Auntie Becky, Jacki?

Jackie said...

Kind of a quiet party, eh? I'm a bit out of it tonight. I made the mistake of laying down for a short nap and almost slept through.

Jackie said...

What treat?

Becky said...

I have had an awful stomach ache today. Hubby wanted me to go to the ER but I told him no. If I Still hurt tomorrow I will go.

David said...

Good evening everyone. =)

Hope you get better Becky.

Jackie said...

Hi, David. I too hope you feel better, Becky!

Becky said...

Sheri is tough to be and older player.

Becky said...

Hey, David.

Jackie said...

I really like Sheri and Cole. There have been no solidly obnoxious teams at all this season, in my opinion.

Becky said...

From your lips to God's ear Jackie and David.

David said...

Oh noo, my pool pick got double u-turned. They were already a little behind from the last leg. Smart of Korey and Tyler though, those guys have been near the top most of the time.

Jackie said...

Sorry I'm so quiet tonight. Sleepy!

Jackie said...

Unless the Alpha Boys are your pool pick (sorry, David), it was a good move for Burnie and Ashley to burn out the second U-Turn by naming the team ahead of them. They certainly built favor with the other teams ... except for Brodie and Kurt.

~~Silk said...

Just to let you know I'm lurking, as usual.

David said...

Hope you get plenty of rest Jackie. Stock up on rest before BB starts. Doesn't work that way but it should. =)

Becky said...

Hey, Silk. I like Tyler team.

Becky said...

I'm glad Sheri and Cole are still in it. Jackie, thank you for hosting. Go to bed!

David said...

Oh man, I was kicked out of the pool again. dang. Well that was a smart move by Tyler and Korey as they were the strongest competition.

Thank you Jackie. get some rest.

Everyone have a great weekend.

Becky said...

Night all.

Jackie said...

It's amazing that Sheri/Cole are still in it and the Alpha Boys are out! Good for them!

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

Nickelpeed said...

I am so sad the boys got eliminated. Phooey!!! My pool pick is still in the game; but I really like Cole and Sheri. Hope they stay in it.
