The Amazing Race ” 26 ” (or beyond!), Legs 1 and 2 – San Francisco → Albay → Ilocos Norte!

You’d think when The Amazing Race moved to Fridays, it would never be pre-empted or delayed, let alone by an awards show. But that’s what happened this week.

And already halfway through TAR25 (which has been the best season since TAR17!), it looks 50/50 that they’ll be making their long awaited return to the Philippines this season. Bertram’s tease in that TARPH promo in May must have meant TAR26.

And speaking of, CBS made the surprising, but welcome announcement that TAR26, first of all, would actually exist. But also that it would have a 90-minute premiere after Survivor‘s premiere in February.

So with no TAR this week, I started thinking about what TAR could do for its 90 minute premiere to help bring in new viewers and bring back old viewers who may have tuned out. Throwing in my wishlist for a San Francisco > Philippines opening Leg and here we go! Continue reading

The 8th Leg begins in the morning as teams must travel by ferry to Malta. Once there, they will pick-up an order of drinks from The Bridge Bar and climb up St. Ursula’s staircase to deliver the drinks to a table of waiting Knights of Malta.

Amy’s leg is hurting since she worked it too much when preparing to go on the Race.

The teams are all on the evening ferry together. Misti points out that Kym & Alli are off by themselves again, like they usually are. Brooke is not a fan of theirs. They rub her the wrong way and they’re a strong team, so she wants to Double U-Turn them. Continue reading

Matt and Phoebe bump heads as they leave the cluebox and avoid the cameraman. Eji hears them arguing and hope they continue to fight so they can be delayed and Roch & Eji stay in 1st.

Roch & Eji think they’ll be walking into lion and tiger cages. Matt & Phoebe ask their driver and he says there’s huge snakes at the Wildlife Park. Jet & Yna know it’s snakes since they’ve been there before. Continue reading
