I will start this off with my fearless prediction of NCAA basketball completion time. The Duke/Baylor regional game  as a timeout ends at 538pm has just 7 minutes left in the first half. it should finish at about 555pm. With a 15 minutes halftime and 50 minutes of second half, it could end at 7pm but those timeouts near the end of the game can really throw predictions off. There is no competing game for CBS to show in the same time slot this week or obviously next week when there will be no Sunday games at all. I predict 60 Minutes starts at 710pm tonight UNLESS it goes to overtime. With Duke having almost twice the points of Baylor, that does not appear likely.

Halftime is about to end in 3 minutes around 510pm. Baylor made a huge comeback and is leading 35-32. This one COULD go to overtime. We'll see. I am sticking with a 710pm start time prediction for 60 Minutes.

Duke won 78-71, CBS is in the middle of the commercials after the postgame show and 60 Minutes has just started at 729pm and 47 seconds(cable about 5 seconds later).

PREVIOUSLY ON .. THE AMAZING RACE:

Phil: Seven teams raced through the Champagne region of France. Dan/Jordan remained calm at the Detour (glass stack) but Brent/Caite crumbled. Michael's eagle eye gave the Dick-tectives their 3rd straight win.  Jordeff lost their balance (crashing glasses) and couldn't recover; were Philiminated.

Six teams remain. Who will be eliminated next?

Phil: This is the Champagne region, studded with vineyards and estates through the centuries.  This, the 6th pitstop.

Louie/Michael, 12:35 am. CLUE: Fly to the Island of Mahi in the Seychelles.

Phil: Due to the remote, exotic location, teams are E Q U A L I Z E D on the same plane.  They must get to a kiosk and pick numbers upon arrival.

Carol/Brandy, 1:28 am.
Steve/Allie, 1:57 am.
Jet/Cord, 2:36 am.

Post by: mswood on March 28, 2010, 07:40:16 PM
Everybody's at DeGaulle airport together. 
Brent/Caite look at the seating chart and choose Row 7 while other teams chow down.
Dan/Jordan get Row 10 from the clerk.
Carol/Brandi get 25F, 25G.

It's potentially a big deal because they have to R A C E to a kiosk where some ordering will probably commence.
Title: Re: EP7: East Coast live show updates and commentary *please read the rules*

Brent/Caite, CLUE: Fly to Island of LaDigue, by helicopter.

Phil: Three teams go together; the remaining teams one hour later.
Title: Re: EP7: East Coast live show updates and commentary *please read the rules*
Post by: mswood on March 28, 2010, 07:41:38 PM

Brent: This is like something from a post card! The views are sick!
Allie: I feel so blessed to be here and experience this with you, Dad!
Dan/Jordan: This is gonna be so cool! (singing) We got a rainbow following us ...


The other 3 teams stew in their juices.

Detour: Turtle Toddle or Ox Trot

Turtles: Lure a turtle across a detour with a banana, and then carry bananas to a merchant one mile.

Ox: Load a cart of coconuts (don't miss any!!!) and carry them over.

YES, ANIMAL TASKS.  :jumpy:
Title: Re: EP7: East Coast live show updates and commentary *please read the rules*

Lesbians: The three strongest teams are in the back!


Brent/Caite, DETOUR.
Turtle toddle, or Ox trot?
Phil: TT, lure a tortoise with a banana, across the lawn. Grab bananas 1 1/2 miles and deliver them to a food merchant.
OT, bring a cart to this clearing, load coconuts into carts and deliver to the harbor without losing any.

Steve and Allie take their banana and go to a tortoise farm where they have to choose one.
Love the mood music ... don't love the snapping tortoises as much though.

The last 3 teams get in for their ride across to the island.
Jet/Cord: We're not giving up until Phil tells us to leave!

Brent meets his ox.
Brent: You gonna be good to us?

Steve puts the turtle in line and uses the banana to bait him. Allie takes the rein.
Allie: Omigosh! He's hauling it!

Brent/Caite take their ox and ride their coconut-filled cart along the road, quibbling about something irrelevant.

Steve: We got the greatest tortoise ever! They give him a taste of the banana, then the whole thing.
Allie and Steve grab a bunch of bananas each (not too heavy, really) but they have to carry them 1.5 miles now to a merchant.

Brent's ox is broken!   

Steve, walking past Brent's stalled ox: Want some bananas?
 @ Steve!

Jet and Cord being efficient, while C/B get stuck with a potentially slow tortoise.

Route Marker: Swim to the boat and go to St. Pierre Island.

S/A don't have their bags  :ascared

and B/C are being denied their clue.  :groan: :groan:

Dan/Jordan call their ox "gross" and tell him "Andale!"
But at least their ox is moving.
Steve's ox finally starts moving again.
Cops put coconuts in the carts.
Lesbians choose a tortoise.
Jet/Cord choose ... I dunno. THey're in last.

Steve/Allie deliver bananas. CLUE: Hit the waves! Go to the schooner.
Phil: The boat captain will give them the next clue.
Allie: Oh! It's a ... boat!

Dan/Jordan pass Brent/Caite's broken ox.
Brent: We've got the slowest ox out here.
Dan/Jordan deliver coconuts in 2nd.

Brent/Caite deliver coconuts in 3rd.
Man: It's NOT ENOUGH!
Brent: WHADDAYA MEAN IT'S NOT ENOUGH!?!?

Uh-oh ... Steve/Allie on the boat realize they LEFT THEIR BACKPACKS!
Allie: I can't do that!

Brent/Caite have to get more coconuts.

Brent: I QUIT! WHATEVIA~! !!! !!! !!!

Steve/Allie decided to plod on ... apparently they'll run the leg first and worry about their packs later.

Steve/Allie, ROADBLOCK.
Phil: Different kind of treasure map. It's underwater. A team member must find a submerged case of 7 bottles, untie it below the water, and bring it up to the surface. The Map then leads them to the Pitstop. Last team to check in may be eliminated.

Steve's the swimmer. He takes off for the submerged bottles, marked with a buoy.
Allie sees the brothers approaching.
Jordan in 2nd will do the swimming.
Jordan: It's really deep!   
He drops the bottle as he lets it free, then has to swim down to the very bottom to retrieve it.

Ox update: Cops going one way, pass Brent/Caite going the other way.
Caite: This is so unfair!
They pick up their coconuts and reload the cart with what they think is the rest of 'em.
Jet/Cord finally take off.

Meanwhile ...
The Lesbians have changed Detours and are now in LAST with what may be a broken ox.

Phil: Dan/Jordan, you're Team #2.

In 3rd, Louie/Michael "hit the waves."
Brent/Caite still ahead of the Cowboys, but not by much.
Now, not at all.
One oxcart is broken ... still!
Cowboys pass Brent/Caite.  
Brent/Caite pass them back in the narrow street.
Brent/Caite narrowly beat them to the CLUE in 4th.
Man to Cowboys: YOU DID NOT LOAD ALL YOUR COCONUTS.
Oh, shit! Cowboys don't have ALL the coconuts, and have to go back!  
Jet: We thought we should just convince him that we did.  
Cord: Oh, my gravy.

Lesbians, back at the loading point, also seem to have missed a coconut.  
Either that, or the camera showed the Jet/Cord missing coconut.  One or the other.  We'll see.

Boat passing ... Brent/Caite pass the Cops.

Carol/Brandy going in one direction pass Cowboys in the other direction.
Cowboys get their one missing coconut and put it in the cart.

Carol/Brandy arrive.
Man: YOU DID NOT LOAD ALL THE COCONUTS.
Lesbians: YES WE DID!
Man: NO YOU DID NOT LOAD ALL THE COCONUTS.
Lesbians: Noo ... We have to go back!? We're done! We're done!


COMMERCIAL.

I'd agree -- however, I suspect that Steve & Allie had a good idea where they left their backpacks.  They didn't have them during the walk to the market, so they probably figured that they left it at the Turtle Toddle area.  So they probably went back and got the backpacks.

When did Dandrew lose their clothes, they lost shoes and spent a huge amount buying new ones, so much that they got held up by a taxi because they couldn't pay the fare.

I honestly don't remember any team loses their clothes and all their supplies, the closest would be the penalty for being last on a non elimination.  BJ & Tyler for example depended on friends and locals as well as lost and founds at teh hotel.

Can I just state how incredible stupid it was to get rid of almost all your possessions.

Idiotic.

I'd agree -- however, I suspect that Steve & Allie had a good idea where they left their backpacks.  They didn't have them during the walk to the market, so they probably figured that they left it at the Turtle Toddle area.  So they probably went back and got the backpacks.

I don't think they can though.

Only problem with this is on most legs when you heck into the Pit Stop you aren't allowed to leave the Pit Stop.  Its incredible stupid.

They had not only an hour lead over three teams but a few minutes over the next two teams.  They could have easily back tracked and most likely at worst finished third.

Lesbians waste time arguing then finally get into the cart and head back.
One: "I think when you threw them in, you threw some over the side."
Other: "Um, no.  Place the blame on me!?"

Caite being useless except to complain, Brent decides to swim/dive.

Michael jumps into the Indian Ocean. He tosses the first bottle in the boat and breaks it.    Louie almost cuts his foot.  Ouch!

Brandy/Carol going the wrong direction.
Jet: There's still hope!
Jet/Cord get the clue and swim toward the boat.
Carol/Brandy get the coconut and put it in their cart.
Finally, Carol/Brandy get their schooner clue.

Phil: Jet/Cord, you are the 5th team to arrive.
Phil: How did you find the pitstop? 
Jet: We jogged until you caught our eye. 
Phil: You didn't look inside the bottle? 
Cowboys:  Umm ... duh?
Phil: No?  Didn't see anything inside of it?  Well, BAD NEWS.  You must retrieve the bottle, and bring the contents to shore before I can check you in.

Phil: You must retrieve the bottle, remove the contents, and bring the contents to shore before I can check you in.

They spot their boat about a half-mile away from shore.  They swim out to it!   
It's NOT their boat!  In the boat, Carol/Brandy!   
Replay of confessional: I'm not giving up until Phil says you have to go.
Carol/Brandy race the Cowboys in the water!
Cowboys: We're still in it!
Brandy: A map!  It's a map!  It's off the beach, in the grass! 
Carol: Nothing here.
Reaching shore ... Cord: COME ON , JET!  RUN! 


Rastaman: Welcome to Seychelles.
Phil: Carol/Brandy, you're Team #5. 
Brandy: Whee! Really!?

Tossing the bottle/map on the mat ...
Phil: Jet/Cord, you are NOW the LAST team to arrive.  Sorry to tell you that the next leg is pretty tough.  This is a Non-Elimination leg.  You're still in the Race, but you cut it pretty close.  An extra task in the next leg, a Speed Bump.  Up to the challenge?
Both: Yes, sir.
One cowboy, Conf: The champions are the ones who get bucked off the bull and get up onto another one.  That's just what we do.
Other cowboy: Sounds like a country song.

OMG. THIS. HAS. GOT. TO. BE. THE. BEST. EPISODE. OF. THE AMAZING. RACE. I'VE. WATCHED. THE. ENTIRE. SEASON.

THEY NEED TO SEND THIS EPISODE FOR EMMYS!!!

I'M SERIOUS. I'M IN AWE. I'M IN SHOCK. I LOVE THIS EPISODE.

WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT THIS EPISODE IS THAT YOU GET TO GO ON A HELICOPTER RIDE WITH THE TEAMS, HAVE INTERESTING DETOUR OPTIONS AND A BEAUTIFUL ROADBLOCK CHOICE! ACCOMPANIED BY A CLUE MAP TO THE PITSTOP WHICH IS REALLY INTERESTING!!

Although Steve and Allie lost their bags.. and i think that should they go all the way back to retrieve their bags.. they will still come in a pretty good 2nd placing behind Dan and Jordan.

This episode is great. First you have Brent and Caite in first, then you have Steve and Allie completing Detour in first, then they forget their bags and you don't know if they will fall behind.. then they move on..you don't know if they're going to get a penalty... Dan and Jordan doing well.. Brent and Caite return behind Michael and Louie.. then overtake them.. then Carol/Brandy are in last... Cowboys forgot a coconut... return.. Carol and Brandy in fifth.. lesbians lost a coconut too.. in last.. cowboys fifth... Brent/Caite and Michael/Louie check-in together... cowboys reached RB... Brandy/Carol barely behind.. cowboys reached pitstop... return to get their bottle.. see lesbians.. lesbians run... cowboys run... lesbians in fifth and cowboys in last and a NEL!!

Omg, that has got to be th most unexpecting episode i've watched in my entire life. :lol:

Carol and Brandy, Michael and Louie, Jet and Cord for not getting front seats = 3 mistakes
Brent and Caite, Jet and Cord, Carol and Brandy for missing out coconuts = 3 mistakes
Carol and Brandy for choosing to switch detour was sort of a mistake.
Steve and Allie leaving behind their backpack was a mistake.
Jet and Cord leaving behind their bottle was a mistake...

You have about 9 mistakes (and maybe more) this leg... that has to be a record breaking episode!! :lol3:

LOVE THE ISLAND.

Although i like the cowboys and are rooting for them... i was kinda hoping that they'll land in last because that will kinda show to everyone the fact that they are not necessarily the strongest team on the race.

Carol and Brandy are just ewww.

Brent and Caite are getting on my nerves...

Jordan and Dan are growing on me... no idea why but they're fun to watch for the past 2 to 3 episodes!! Very smart team as well!!

Michael and Louie... who cares??

OMG ASIA NEXT AND MALAYSIA!!!!!!!!!! ONE MORE EPISODE TO SINGAPORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :colors :colors :colors

S/A debating getting a clue. Steve is actually thinking of not going back! Did he watch TAR 14 or not?!

Brent threatens to quit. Good job.

Caelestor,
I think you meant "Brent is actually thinking of not going back!" Steve never wavered on going back; he was going to live without his clothes and force Allie to do the same to get first place. as it turned out, that was a good decision, as you can buy a lot of clothes for $14,000 and all the 7UP you can drink.

apskip,

Sorry if I made errors. First and probably only time I'm blogging.

TAR 16 is shaping up to be the opposite of TAR 14: incompetent teams but great route, scenery, and tasks. Most importantly, TAR 16 keeps getting better with each episode.

Post by: Hooky on March 29, 2010, 04:45:58 PM
I agree with Joab. This was my favorite episode so far. Very little for me to complain about. :lol3:

I liked that we got to see things get mixed up. Steve & Allie in first?! It just goes to show that losing bags doesn't have to put you behind if you are willing to sacrifice them. But if I were them I still would have gone back to get them. It wouldn't have taken too long, actually. Jet & Cord still would have been last.

Beautiful islands! I want to visit them some day. :colors

The editing was pretty smooth this episode, and I think the laid back pace of the islands contributed to that. It would have been shocking if this leg had been a non-elim, but thank goodness Jet & Cord are still alive! Their facial expressions at the mat were hilarious!

I'm glad Brent & Caite weren't last. It makes it easier to watch them. :lol:

Louie & Michael: "We don't like them. They don't bring positive energy." I don't like Carol & Brandy much either, but let's remember that you guys brought your own negative energy with the spiteful U-turn. I won't rant about this again. :lol:

Dan & Jordan are growing on me, too. They now seem to be the smartest team on the race. Of course, by the standard of previous races their intelligence level is really pretty average.

Loved the tasks as well. Animals are a great way to create intriguing tasks. The diving to get a puzzle Roadblock was kind of uninteresting, but the drama of Jet & Cord not doing it properly helped make up for that. I don't think they really needed the map to find the Pit Stop, though. Maybe they should have dived into the water to see some of the wildlife instead.

But yeah. Great episode, best of the season for me. :wohoo:

I have to agree that this has been one of the best episodes in the season

I didn't even know that the Seychelles were that pretty

Good tasks this time, better that some in the previous episodes. This is so far the best leg yet :wohoo:
I know it's a part of the race, I know they're only human but somehow, the teams are getting more stupid and forgetful (no intention to offend) every season and they are committing more and more mistakes every season! :groan: like those coconuts, Steve and Allie losing thier bags and the Cowboys going to the pitstop without thier clue!

So far on the teams

Steve and Allie: Starting to become one of my faves but I thought they would have a penalty for losing thier bags, I think they got thier bags after checking in, I guess :duno: and they're getting more attention than in the previuos legs

Dan and Jordan: They, in a way are also becoming one of my faves also, They did well in this leg

Brent and Caite: With what happened to them I expected them not to be in the top 3 but not really one of my faves and so far meh...

Louie and Michael: I have no comment

Carol and Brandy: I think they're my least favorite in the race so far :meow:

Jet and Cord being last place means that they are not the best team but they are my most favorites, good thing it was an NEL Hopefully they catch up in the next leg :yess:

Overall great episode! hopefully this season wont end up in my least favorite seasons
