The Amazing Race Blog Party - May 6, 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, birthday girl, (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

Philiminated:
Marty & Hagan- Jackie, Willie J
Cameron & Darius- chrob61, PDXGranny
Jessica & Brittany- Donna in AL, Monty924
Erin & Joslyn- Brian, Margo, Rbennie
Scott & Blair- Meb, Jennasmom
Zach & Rachel- Sharon N, Nana in NW
Kurt & Brodie- David, Ed in OH

Last week we lost the Alpha Male team. Who gets Philiminated next?

Ready to race?

Teams are on the way to China. All teams are on the same flight. They have to trek by bus and train to the Eiffel Tower. No, not the one in Paris! There's a bit of a rift going on because Tyler/Korey were exposed when they said they hadn't found the clue, but they did. Poor Sheri and Cole!

Who wants to see the world? A theme park has many iconic structures from around the world. Tyler works with Dana. Burnie is on his own. Sheri and Cole missed the bus. Sheri us doing well once she gets going. But she's still behind. Burnie passed out Dana and Tyler.

Detour - Commuter Cycle or Master of Arts. Travel on a cycle scooter thing or find an artist with a marked paint brush, deliver and post paintings.

Pit Stop:
1. Tyler and Korey
2. Dana and Matt
3. SHERI AND COLE!!!
4. Burnie and Ashley

The last team was Philiminated. But I'm so happy for Cole and Sheri!

You can't tell me I'm the only one here???? Hi Jackie & Vincent!!

SueGee said...

And I was just going to stop in to see if I can snag a Chinese cookie :o) and leave you with some birthday cake so I don't eat it all!!

Jackie said...

Hi, Sue! Happy birthday to you (and Margo, too)! *And David and Skip. But not the David here.

David said...

Hi Jackie and SueGee and everyone else who arrives. Happy Birthday SueGee. =))

We are down to the final 4 teams. I hope Sherri and Cole can make it to the end. Winning is probably a long shot but you never know.

Jackie said...

The cookies are good. I was surprised when she stopped in to drop them off for me. :)

Jackie said...

... and, happy birthday to George Clooney, too!

SueGee said...

George Clooney sigh...............

Jackie said...

Sue - The friend of mine, David, whose birthday is also today is a bit of a star in his own right (but not in a George Clooney kind of way). He's a popular comics book writer who ruled the 80s Marvel Comics scene. He does have a credit in the last Iron Man movie!

Jackie said...

And AntMan. He wrote Spider-Man and later on, Superman, for years.

SueGee said...

Never got into that kind of comics. I was Superman and then Richie Rich LOL

SueGee said...

and it was old school Superman

Jackie said...

He wrote it in the 90s. But he also did Star Wars and Swamp Thing! ;-)

David said...

LOL, I remember Richie Rich. Had a big pile of those comics starting with number 1. My step-dad stole them all and sold them. He was a total jerk. (I would use harsher language but not here.

Jackie said...

I was into Archie comics myself!

SueGee said...

My son would have maybe read comics in the 90's

SueGee said...

My cousins had giat stacks of comics. One were all Archie & Veronica and the other all Superman and Richie Rich... I would get lost in the stacks whenever we visited

Jackie said...

Wonder where everybody is tonight. I know it's Penny (Nicklepeed) anniversary and she's out to dinner. Don't know where Becky is.

Jackie said...

David gave me copies of just about everything he's written since the 70s. So, I do have comic books!

SueGee said...

Friday nights suck LOL

SueGee said...

Friday night was where networks sent shows to die. Some lately have really beat the odds...

David said...

Was he nice and signed all of those comics for you Jackie? =) Could be worth a pretty penny.

David said...

I think CBS wants to kill off TAR. When they first moved it to Fridays I thought that was it. I am surprised it has survived this long on Fridays'.

SueGee said...

That's what I thought too. Time to bring it back to Sundays or maybe before or right after Survivor?

Jackie said...

David, no he didn't. But some are still worth a lot anyway. I could ask, but it would be weird.

I'm so happy for Sheri and Cole!

Jackie said...

Well, I do like Blue Bloods, also Fridays. But the 10pm slot is better for a show on that night.

SueGee said...

Go Korey & Tyler!! (My pool team)

See you next time!!

Jackie said...

Well, thank you two for coming!

David said...

Good for them. lol Sherri and Cole have beat the odds all the way through this and have been lucky a few times.

Thanks Jackie. =)

Everyone have a great weekend. And they should move TAR to after Survivor. That is where the season premiered, should have kept it there.

Nickelpeed said...

Sorry. We went out for our 33rd Anniversay; and forgot to check in. YAYAYAYAYAYAY. I am SO glad Sheri and Cole made it and am THRILLED Bernie and Ashley got eliminated. I really did not like him.

I won't be here next week, either. I really thought I'd be here tonight, but we had to go pick up our car and decided to go out to dinner.
