The Amazing Race: May 4, 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
Are we ready? Yes, we are!
Liz and Michael are missing their families. He's especially missing his daughter and is in tears. But they can't sit around because the teams are going to be heading to Venice, Italy. There are two buses, a four-hour bus ride. From there they need to take a water taxi and it's finding a clue held by a sweeping worker next. Scott is bummed that he's stuck with Brooke because she's a "glass half empty" pessimist type person. I don't blame him.
Detour -- Sing It or Bring It. They have to learn and perform an Italian song or lug much luggage up into a hotel.
Matt and Redmond took the physical detour and are now the first team to complete the Detour. Joey practically hauled the luggage by himself. They're running in second.
Who has Masked Intentions is the Roadblock. They have to pick an actor and recreate the mask. There is a demo going on, so they're not totally clueless.
Finally, Becca and Floyd finish singing. They're on the way to the Roadblock.
Brooke is fussing once again.
Redmond finishes his mask just as Joey and Tara are arriving. Redmond and Matt are headed to the Pit Stop. Floyd arrives at the Roadblock and follows the painting instructions which he mentions to us that Tara isn't doing.
Michael called out LoLo (London/Logan) for not helping him find an earlier clue after they had helped LoLo a lot before.
Pit Stop order:
1. Matt and Redmond, won a trip to Grenada
2. Becca and Floyd
3. Tara and Joey
Brooke is running around asking so many others and no one wants to help her. Liz is doing the mask wrong. But it's getting so it's every team for themselves a bit. Tara finished her mask.
4/5 Logan and London, Brooke and Scott
6. Michael and Liz -- NON-PHILIMINATION LEG
All teams are still in it. Michael and Liz will encounter a Speed Bump in the next leg.
