Amazing Race: All Stars: Leg 1 Continued

// March 3rd, 2011 // fun

I’m not surprised Amanda and Kris are gone. I barely knew who they were before the thing started. I do feel bad about them getting ousted twice by a U-Turn. I mean, how unlucky do you have to be?

Sadly for our contest, that means Tracy is already without a team. Tracy, remember you can do the following:

“If you lose a team in the FIRST week, you have the option to continue with only TWO, or take a -15 point deduction and choose another team before the second week of the contest.”

Let me know what you’d like to do!

So…it’s always hard for me to remember what happened a few days after the show airs, but how amazing is it that the Cowboys still ended up third after all that? Certainly all of them catching up helped, but it’s still crazy how they are always in there.

Of course, they probably owe that to Kent and Vyxsin who somehow thought they needed dancing children to help them finish, and whilst doing that watched 2 other teams finish and leave.

I love All-Stars…so much fun, can’t wait to see where it goes.

The Contest

Okay, first off I want to acknowledge that I give Adrian a lot of grief for not doing too hot the last few seasons…even going so far as creating an “Adrian Rule”, which is the one Tracy gets to use this week if she wants to.

But Adrian is off to the best start you could possibly have which is joining two others (including me…of course) with the top three finishing teams…which gives you a 15 point bonus on top of the normal points for finishing a leg.

Definitely a huge lead right away, the rest of you guys will have some work to do to catch up!

Current standings:

  1. Adrian – 33
  2. Steve – 33
  3. Mike -33
  4. Nicky -12
  5. MJ -12
  6. Jina -9
  7. Heather -9
  8. Seth&Lisa -9

  10. Ryann -5

    Well, crap – sucks to be me, or Amanda and Kris, I guess. :) I think I’m going to have to invoke the Adrian rule and pick up Zev and Justin. At least the Cowboys came through – they’re always fun to cheer for.
    This is an interesting cast because many of these teams need to prove themselves to redeem the way they went out the last time. I still can’t get over how Lakisha and Jen stopped to go pee before getting to the mat for the win.
