The Amazing Race: Blog Party - April 6, 2017
Man, I'm going to have trouble with this later hour for the show! Please bear with me as I'm way tired and I'm still a bit iffy on some of the team names. I will do my best to live blog the show's events as they air here on the East Coast. The real party is in the comments area -- come join in on the fun!
The Lovely Lifeguard Sharon C has made the random match-ups for the blog pool. If you missed the post announcing them, here they are again:
Shamir/Sara - Indiana Jane, Jenna's Mom
London/Logan - Delee, Sharon N
Seth/Olive - ML, Cheryl in NC
Brooke/Scott - Chrob61, Becky
Tara/Joey - SueGee, Willie J, Monty924
Becca/Floyd - Janice, Brian
Liz/Michael - Judi Sweeney, Dolores in Hollywood, Ed in Ohio
Matt/Redmond - MerriLee, Jackie
Jessica/Francesca - Brenda, David, Sharon C
Vanck/Ashton - Nickelpeed, Donna in FL
Are we ready? Yes, we are!
But CBS isn't. I was watching Chicago Med which had one news brief during it. I turned to CBS and they have news coverage. I don't know how long this will go on.
Okay, five minutes in we're joining the show. It seems we missed some recapping from each team.
Teams are heading to Brazil. We find out that Shamir is not a patient dude. The teams end up on six different flights. Once there, they take a helicopter ride over the city.
Redmond and Matt dishonored a coin flip with Vanck and Ashton. Oops. Not the way to win friends.
Detour: Keep the Beat or Work Your Feet - Learn the music and keep up with the band or build work-out station.
Redmond and Matt seem to work together very well. Next they're heading to find marked bicycles. They're in the lead, followed by Vanck and Ashton.
Brooke has hurt her arm, but refuses to let it stop her.
Vanck and Ashton take over the lead when the boys get lost. They will have to wash a marked window. On a high-rise, of course. It's the first Roadblock of the season.
Scott has to do the Roadblock because of Brooke's injury. He has a horrible fear of heights. Will he be able to do it?
Oh my gosh! Liz and Michael took over the lead in the Roadblock. They're the first team heading to the Pit Stop. Vanck and Ashton are on their tails.
Pit Stop Order:
1. Liz and Michael - won a trip for two to Barbados.
2, Vanck and Ashton
3. Matt and Redmond
4. Seth and Olive
Shamir is fussing and whining, claiming his testicles hurt from the harness. He wants an ambulance ... and gets one.
Oh geez ... Jessica and Francesca don't see the marked bike going by them a million times. Sara leads them wrong. The girls arrive while Shamir pouts.
5, Becca and Floyd
6. Brooke and Scott
7. Joey and Tara
8. London and Logan
9. Shamir and Sara
Shamir is being a jerk.
10. Jessie and Francesca, Philiminated
