So sorry! :(

Hey everyone! I appologize for not keeping up with the Amazing Race this past season. As some of you know (those of you who follow my big brother blog), I got married this past June, then we bought a house in Sept., moved in October, and adopted a Golden Retriever puppy...which is like having a baby on paws. ;-) lol

I've been so busy that I didn't even have the chance to tell ya'll that I had to give up blogging (Survivor and Amazing Race) this past year.

With that being said, I think I will stick with Big Brother blogging (July-Sept) every year. If I ever get the urge to blog about Amazing Race, you can bet your bottom dollar that I will come back here!

Thanks for the love & support!

Stay tuned...

Hey everyone! As ya'll know, I'm in the process of moving and blogging about Amazing Race (and Survivor) has become too much for me to take on for the next couple of weeks. I'll have to wait until we're settled in our new house before picking up blogging again. :(

Episode #3:

The beginning of Episode 3 showed a bit of a tiff between Starr and Christy. Christy is blaming Starr for throwing (or bumping) Christy's sports bra off of a ledge. Starr didn't.

Since Ken & Tina were 1st to arrive at the last pit stop, they were first to depart at 12:51am.

All teams have to fly to La Paz, Bolivia which is 12,000 feet above sea level and could leave them all breathless..literally.

Once they land, they have to make their way to this statue:

Then they have to go through the morning news paper and look for a classified ad for their next clue.

Ken & Tina said that they have communication problems and they need to stop pushing each others' buttons.

After the teams landed in La Paz, Nick & Starr were in 1st place. Mark & Bill were in 2nd.

The teams arrived late at night and had to camp out in the public with blankets. In the morning, the ladies were putting on makeup and Nick went over to Christy and tried to make peace but the ladies told him they didn't care what people thought about them (like or dislike) and Christy said that she still thinks Starr pushed her sports bra off the edge of their hotel.

As soon as the morning paper arrived, all the teams jumped on them and got a paper. The clue told them to go to a hat shop:

They had to buy a traditional hat in order to get their next clue. Andrew & Dan were first to find the classified ad and go to the hat shop via taxi, except Mark & Bill and Terrence & Sarah..who decided to walk. Mark & Bill had a tough time walking/breathing because of the high altitude.

Andrew & Dan were 1st to arrive to the hat shop.

The clue ended up being a....


and at the end of the detour is a U-Turn!! (First one this season.) A U-Turn can be used to slow down another team by making that team do BOTH options of the detour. All teams can only use the detour 1 time the entire race.

The clue told all the teams that they had to make their way to one of the detour options BY FOOT ONLY, and some teams didn't read the whole clue and took taxi's!

Terrence tried to tell Sarah that taking a taxi was a huge mistake:

Mark & Bill completed the Detour 1st and decided to NOT use the U-Turn:

The next clue told them to go 8 miles (by taxi) to...

..where they will find their next clue

Next up was a Road Block:

..where 1 team member had to fight a girl! lol They will be taught 6 moves and when they feel that they have learned them all, they have to step inside a ring and fight a girl. The referee will tell them if all 6 moves were completed.

(That's Ken, he was 1st to fight one of the the woman.)

Ken performed all 6 moves successfully, making Ken & Tina the 1st team to get their next clue which told them to go to the pit stop.

1st to arrive was...

Ken & Tina

Because Mark & Bill took a taxi during the detour, they got hit with a time delay.
They arrived in 8th place and with a 30 minute delay penalty.

Kelly & Christy came in 8th place and were basically saved by Mark & Bill's delay.

The team that was eliminated was...

Mark & Bill

Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-(

Ughh!! This season better start switching gears because I can't stand Ken & Tina and now my favorite team was just eliminated.

What are ya'lls thoughts on this weeks episode?? Leave'em below in a comment!

Until next week...
