The Amazing Race: Blog Party - May 25, 2017


I'll be live blogging the show's events as they air here on the East Coast. Refresh this page to get the latest news! 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 I might even have a chance at my first blog pool win this season!

London/Logan - Delee, Sharon N
Brooke/Scott - Chrob61, Becky
Tara/Joey - SueGee, Willie J, Monty924
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
Liz/Michael - Judi Sweeney, Dolores in Hollywood, Ed in Ohio
Becca/Floyd - Janice, Brian

Are we ready? Yes, we are! 

Teams are heading to Seoul, South Korea. All teams are on the same flight, so they'll all start out even. Matt/Redmond took the subway while all the other teams took taxis. They're heading to a disco place to get their next clue from Gangam (sp?) dancers.

Roadblock -- Who stacks up? Sports stacking of cups. The subway had the boys running in last. Uh-oh. Yikes! BROOKE finishes first and remained positive through it!

Teams next have to make kimchi, the national food of Korea. They have to make six batches, then bury them to start fermenting the dish. 

After all the other teams left the Roadblock, Matt/Redmond arrived -- subway and a bad cab ride. 

Joey and Tara finish the kimchi first and are in the lead.  Oh, geez, Scott and Brooke passed them in the cab.  

Another Roadblock - Who's going to take control? Win a round of a martial arts video game against pros. They are not having a good time with it.

Matt/Redmond are making the kimchi.

If I vanish, I'm hearing severe thunder out there. Just a warning!

They are handicapping the pro video players -- first down to one handed, then a blindfold. London's through, Scott's through. They're off to the Pit Stop. 

Pit Stop:
1. Brooke and Scott. Gah. 
2. London and Logan 

The last two teams are racing in cabs and then on foot ...
3. Tara and Joey

I'm keeping my streak of never winning a blog pool Matt and Redmond are Philiminated. 

Yipes! I thought tonight was the season finale! I guess it's not!

Hey Jackie and SueGee. We're still hanging in there SG. I brought cheesecake with cherry, strawberry, chocolate and carmel toppings.

SueGee said...

Things any quieter in Jackieland?

Jackie said...

Becca and Floyd were my favorite team ever, though. Sniffle.

SueGee said...

Yum Monty!! I'm doing this and avoiding cleaning up the kitchen - mad a mess cooking

Jackie said...

Eh, not like it should be. Third floor runners. Why? Why?

monty924 said...

Jackie, Becca and Floyd were my favorites too.

SueGee said...

I think I liked Becca and Floyd best too. Anyone but whiners Brook & Scott

monty924 said...

Interesting... subway over taxi??

SueGee said...

I'll be back in a bit.....

David said...

hello everyone. =)

Hope you are doing much better jackie.

My team was out early. so I will have to admire you contenders from afar.

monty924 said...

Ugh, Brooke and Scott out first

monty924 said...

Hey David

monty924 said...

Tara and Joey in the lead now. YAY

monty924 said...

For me, that gaming would be IMPOSSIBLE to do.

SueGee said...

Are we going to petition CBS to put the show on at a better time?? I always thought Friday was bad but at least it was on earlier..

Jackie said...

If I vanish -- we have severe storms coming though. My power flickered once already.

Jackie said...

I can't even beat the Playstation 1 kids Crash Bandicoot game.

David said...

I still think they are trying to kill off TAR even though they re-newed it. When that will actually show is anyones guess. It could be a year from now.

SueGee said...

I might be aable to win if the competition is blindfolded

monty924 said...

I have a bad feeling about our team, SueGee

SueGee said...

Brooke and Scott should not win just based on the number of times others have helped them. Should teach future racers!

monty924 said...

Oh TG she got it

monty924 said...

YES!!!!!

David said...

OK, Jackie had me confused with the blog title. Season finale is next week. lol I was going to break my TV if Scott and Brooke won.

SueGee said...

They make it?

monty924 said...

That sucks that the train/taxi thing set them back so far.

Thanks Jackie. Everyone have a great weekend and will see you all for finale.

SueGee said...

Night everyone!!

Jackie said...

Why did I think it was the season finale tonight? OOPS!

monty924 said...

We made it to final 3 SueGee

David said...

Thanks Jackie =)

Everyone have a great week.

Nickelpeed said...
