We are heading back America. One more long flight and sleep of course. BJ managed to convince the hotel staff to keep the Internet, in the hotel, a secret from the other teams. Eric & Jeremy got out on the first flight, but all the teams have to connect and will be on the same flight into Alaska. We are set up for a perfect finish. Word is that the weather is a bit rough in Alaska, which might affect some of the challenges we have set up.
A long night of flying. Things keep changing with the order of the teams. Heard that BJ & Tyler did a Fran & Barry by walking past the snow shoes. It doesn't matter how smart you are; when you're under Race pressure things just disappear.
It is always so exciting at this point in the Race. We are getting calls about where the teams are at, but things change so quickly. We are headed back to the Mile High City. Nice to complete a full lap around the world.
The Roadblock is great. The set up looks incredible with hundreds of flags spread out over the snow covered ground. Having a cerebral challenge so close to the end could make for a dramatic finish if there are a few teams here at once.
All teams are on their way here. What a brilliant finish. Having BJ and Eric dueling it out at the Roadblock after all those miles was just perfect. BJ & Tyler always said it would come down to brains and it did. The hairiest winners ever. Can't believe we have finished Race 9!
The Race is back on track. More miles, more exotic locations, great challenges-- everything that Race fans love. This year I had time to make it to the Television Without Pity party after the finale. It is always a big night, but this year seemed to have more enthusiasm than ever. In two hours I only made it about 15 feet from the front door. These are people who love the Race with an undying passion. The place was packed with Race alumni and our hard core fans…all part of the extended Race family. A huge thank you to everyone for their continued support, there is no show without you. We will be back in the fall with Race 10, everything you expect and more…and a great new time slot.
In the meantime remember, "The World is Waiting for You!"
