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

PHILIMINATED:
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.  

Pit Stop:
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.

Hi Jackie and all who follow. I still can't believe I forgot about Survivor last night. ugh

SueGee said...

Hey Monty! Hi to Jackie & Vincent!!

monty924 said...

Hi SueGee!!

SueGee said...

Jackie - hope you are all ready for your procedure tomorrow and that it gives you some immediate relief!!

SueGee said...

I didn't even stay for the whole show last night - no one was talking to me :(

monty924 said...

I didn't like the look for my team from the previews last week.

monty924 said...

Yes, Jackie. Thoughts and prayers your way.

SueGee said...

Don't we have the same team Monty?

SueGee said...

Yep Tara & Joey they get hot and cold

Jackie said...

Hey, guys!

SueGee said...

They sure like the double u-turns this year don't they? 3rd one

David said...

Hi everyone. =)

Your not the only one who forgot Survivor last night Monty. =), I had to track it down online to watch it.

Hope you procedures all go great Jackie and you get the desired results. =)

SueGee said...

Three more episodes for this show and only two for Survivor left

SueGee said...

Hi David!

monty924 said...

Yes... I really like Tara and Joey but I really like Becca and Floyd. I have a feeling they would Uturn our team in a heartbeat though.

monty924 said...

Well, we survived the U-turn

SueGee said...

And a team can only u-turn another team once? Both ends the turners and the turnees?

David said...

Hi SueGee. =)

~~Silk said...

Lurking...

SueGee said...

I like Becca and Floyd too

Jackie said...

Yes, David ... I get the treatment tomorrow. I'm nervous. But it's nothing like the knee replacements were!

SueGee said...

Scott and Brooke need a steep fall (off their high horses)

Jackie said...

Sue - I didn't realize no one was talking to you last night. I get so involved in updating the blog entry that I visit comments during commercials.

SueGee said...

It was just one of those nights Jackie... nothing you could have done

monty924 said...

Don't know WTH just happened to my computer, but I'm finally back. ugh

monty924 said...

SueGee, I almost sent you a message to tell you that I didn't skip out on the party. Took me twenty minutes to get my blogger to come back up. Sometimes I hate technology, LOL

SueGee said...

I thought you were being awfully quiet

SueGee said...

Are David & Silk still here??

monty924 said...

Yes, we're in first place!

~~Silk said...

I rarely form an active dislike for contestants on TAR, but I confess I smiled when Redbeard found out he can't read a clue any better than his partner can read a map. And the clue was in plain English. Back up the stairs, heh heh.

monty924 said...

Oh, hi David and Silk. I was in the middle of typing that earlier went everything went haywire.

monty924 said...

True that, Silk.

SueGee said...

Mike doesn't seem all that bright LOL

monty924 said...

Nice!! I'd rather have the $$$ than a trip.

SueGee said...

These trips or 2 and they are not partners were ill conceived

SueGee said...

for not or

Jackie said...

I bet Becca and Floyd would have fun on a trip together. Matt and Redmond, too. (Scott and Brooke, not so much.)

SueGee said...

I hope there is at least one more u-turn for Brooke & Scott to get

Jackie said...

It seems to me pre-season, I saw something about London and Logan becoming a couple after the race. But I had no clue who they were then.

monty924 said...

Ewww

monty924 said...

the fight like siblings for certain

Jackie said...

Brooke and Scott need to be on the hit list for the other teams next!

Thank you for coming by tonight!

SueGee said...

Best of luck to you tomorrow Jackie!!

David said...

thank you Jackie. =)

Everyone have a great week. Especially you Jackie. Hope all goes great.

monty924 said...

Thank you Jackie and everyone for the company tonight. Got to back to packing for the mountains. May not see you all on Wednesday. Depends on what time we get through with dinner. Have a good weekend.

Jackie said...

Thank you.

~~Silk said...

Good luck tomorrow, Jackie.

Judi Sweeney said...

Even though Mike and Liz were my team, I really like Floyd and Becca! Glad they made it in! Scott and Brooke are definitely on my hit list! They helped whining Brooke! Thanks Jackie!

Nickelpeed said...

I am going to miss next Thursday, also. I have to work.

One of the reasons it's not so good to U-turn someone is it eventually comes back to bite you in the butt. I feel sorry for Liz and Michael, but they did u-turn another team, who was eliminated. I am really hoping to see Brook and Scott eliminated. Brook is a cry baby all the time; and Michael did do a task for her. I think that is horrible to U-turn him after what he did.

Since I'm a free agent, I absolutely love Becca and Floyd and Redmond and Matt. Brook and Scott, not so much.

Jackie, I hope your procedure goes well for you tomorrow. Sending prayers.

I wish I weren't missing a 2 hour episode next week. :'/
