The Amazing Race: May 11, 2017 Episode Blog Party
I'll be live bloggig 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!
Lifeguard Sharon C has made the random match-ups for the blog pool:
London/Logan - Delee, Sharon N
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
Seth/Olive - ML, Cheryl in NC
Shamir/Sara - Indiana Jane, Jenna's Mom
Vanck/Ashton - Nickelpeed, Donna in FL
Last week was a non-Philimination leg so Michael and Liz (last place) will encounter a Speed Bump tonight.
Are we ready? Yes, we are!
Teams are headed to Greece. Both the Redmond/Matt and Becca/Floyd teams remark about how well they're getting along. Meanwhile, there's Brooke and Scott -- no drama ... ha! All the teams are on the same plane, then will be on a sixteen hour ferry. There will be a Double U-Turn ahead.
Brooke and Scott U-Turn Michael and Liz. Joey and Tara U-Turned Becca/Floyd to give Mike and Liz a chance ... they say. Mike and Liz are already lost. Sigh. So are Becca and Floyd.
Detour - For the Bride or For the Groom -- Greek customary treatment for the bride racing up a gazillion steps or delivery of milk for cheese on a donkey for the groom.
They head next to a stadium where they must complete one "Lap of Honor" to get their next clue. Tara and Joey are in the lead.
Mike and Liz are really ticked off that Scott and Brooke U-Turned them after Michael had helped Brooke and she had promised not to do so. Becca and Floyd name their donkey Speedy McSpeederson. Mike and Liz are actually ahead of Becca and Floyd right now, but haven't done the Speed Bump.
Roadbock - Must master traditional choreography.
Uh-oh. Mike and Liz didn't do the second part of the Detour right and have to go back.
I know I'm being partial, but I certainly hope Becca and Floyd put it in gear and beat them. I enjoy watching them!
Tara and Joey are the first heading to the Pit Stop at the Acropolis.
1. Tara and Joey - won $7,500 each
2. Matt and Redmond
3. Brooke and Scott
Mike and Liz have to wrap meat in intestines before they can run the lap. Of course, Mike is a butcher, so that will help them.
4. London and Logan
Becca and Floyd are starting the Roadblock before Mike and Liz. Whoa! They finish with Mike and Liz on their tails.
5. Becca and Floyd
6. Michael and Liz -- Philiminated
Next week is two hours.
