The Amazing Race – All Stars – Finale

TARlogo2Welcome back, Racefans and non racefans alike. Today is the last of these from me for the season. This crapfest ends with the usual 3 teams ‘racing’ to that final mat for the million dollar prize. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas unless it’s filmed for a television show. That’s where they’re going, departing the UK on the same plane from Heathrow airport. We didn’t get to see it but apparently Brenchel doesn’t think the blondes are so cute and there was a shouting scuffle on the plane ride over. You all know me by now, I don’t think those two vacuous can do anything for themselves women belong there. You also know that I cannot stand people who go on these shows complaining out of one side of their mouths that their current state in their lives (age) is a handicap when it suits them out of one side of their mouths and out of the other, it’s something to be celebrated. Make up your mind, Depends Dave. Then we have Brenchel. This annoying pair has infected my television screen since the one and only season of Big Brother (13) I have ever watched. Really CBS, How many times can we recycle these people on these shows? Well, let’s stagger through this one more time..

Teams land in Vegas and each is supposed to ‘go for a ride’ in a Ford Explorer.. Can’t have an episode without a Ford advertisement now, can we? Does anyone remember the movie Wayne’s World during Garth’s dream sequence with all the blatant product placement? This show is reminding me of that at times. So teams are driven out to the desert, given shovels, and told to dig. Brenchel is a little too over zealous with their digging for Depends Dave and Conner Pampers so they tell Brenchel to knock it off. Rachel reminds them this is a race so just suck it up. They all dig down far enough to uncover a locked wooden box that is the property of David Copperfield. Teams are to open the box and bring the contents back to the parking lot where they began.

Once there, they individually, meet up with David Copperfield for their roadblock. He asks them for the keys. Only Brenchel followed the instructions to bring the contents of the box they dug up, the others, brought the box, not having opened it. That is rectified quickly. The contents is a ring of 50 keys. One from each team will be the subject of an escape gag.. They will be shackled inside of a box. One of the keys on that ring will fit the locks on the shackles.. Once they are free from the shackles (handcuffs), they are given a lock pick kit that they have to use to pick another lock. The gag here is, while they are doing that, the box is set on fire and they are then dropped on to another fire, destroying the crate they are in after their team mate flips a bunch of switches, apparently causing the box to drop. While they stand their all scared that they’ve killed their partner, partner pops up behind them in a fireman’s suit. The great escape. They are given their next clue. Route info.

The info tells teams to go to the neon grave yard and search for the next clue.ย  Somehow, Brenchel wound up with the most lethargic cab driver in Las Vegas to get around Vegas. Their race is over here but they do complete it. At one point, they even tried to steal one of the other cabs, the Blondes cab I think. Anyway, the clue they find tells them to get a light bulb from the silver and red question mark sign and with it, they are supposed to go to the entrance at the Mirage. Rachel use to work there so this should be easy breezy for her. Problem is that pesky cab driver who seemed to insist on driving 10mph below the speed limit, wasn’t completely sure where she was going it seemed, and got caught at every red light.. Needless to say, they are the last to arrive at the M*rage and at this point, Brendon has decided to lead. That means he’s once again decided not to follow directions. Meanwhile, Depends and the Blondes have found that clue box, and are working the task. On all 3 wings, the bulbs on the *I* have been removed from the sign on top. The task is to ride a window washer scaffold up there, and put the bulbs back in, and count the number of bulbs. By the time Brendon decides to listen to his wife through his preaching at her about how to run the race, the other two teams have nearly completed this task. Dammit.. BTW, there are 241 bulbs in the letter I at the Mirage.

The next clue tells them to go to Maverick Helicopters in Henderson. Once there they encounter another roadblock. One from each team is going to skydive, 10000 feet, at a location they must spot, while in the air, and their partner will meet them there. Anyone watching the show, noting the time, will know this is the final task (because it’s only an hour long broadcast). I think the clue said something about a finish line as well. That location is the Las Vegas Speedway. Shall I end the suspense? Depends Dave and Conner Pampers won, with the Blondes coming in second. Rachel is going to have to wait for Brendon to graduate with his PhD and I assume, get a job, before the world is infected with little Brenchels. Maybe, just maybe, if this asshat stopped doing these shows, he could finish with school and graduate. Just sayin… On the upside for Dave, his share of that prize money will buy a lot of Depends so he at least doesn’t have to worry about that for awhile.

Of course in the edit, by the time Brendon finally made his jump, it appeared as though Rachel was sitting there all alone because everyone had already left. That would have added, albeit cruel, levity to this episode because otherwise, I thought it sucked. This had to be the weakest finale show I’ve ever seen. It is of course fine if your viewpoint differs from mine here. We’re all friends here… Past seasons at least tested teams on where they had been during the race in order to claim the prize. Counting light bulbs. Really? I know I’ve said this was fixed before but come on… 2 non elimination rounds and something a trained chimp could do for the brain teaser task to help those vacuous women along. I don’t know what I really expected here but I thought this show was lame, at best, for a finale.. I really grew to hate Dave and Conner and I Never liked the blondes and their act.. Sound familiar? So was this cast. Let them NEVER darken our TV screens again.. Got that CBS?

    Thanks for the blog MTH – give’m hell! Talking about your words to CBS! ๐Ÿ˜†

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Happy Monday to all! One week from today, most of us will be celebrating Memorial Day and a day off. That will help make this week go faster (or slower for some).

      It’s 30 degrees warmer this morning than a few days ago – welcome spring to Huskerland! My son has three finals today and then he will become a college senior. My oldest friend in the world (she’s not old, we’ve just been friends since . . . forever) is meeting me for supper tonight. She lives in Arizona and comes back once a year to see family and friends.

      This is going to be a great week! Happy dance!

  2. Jules says:

    worst RACE ever. I thought I might have taken a nap during it an missed the part where they need to do a task that challenged about all that was done on the race.

    thank you for the recap. Depends acted like his son was a 6yr old and it was amazing he ran the race with him. The guy is well out of college right?

    Have decided to not watch any more AR or Survivors that have returning players from any CBS show. with the millions in the US if there are not any new people for the show the show need to be cancelled.

    • ladebra says:

      Totes agree. That reality pool is small and incestuous. They are professional reality contestants, which is an oxymoron. There is no real in reality ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      I agree about returning players. I watched every season of Survivor up until an All-Stars with a Hanze that I bailed half way through the season and then I boycotted Season 27 for repeat contestants. I’m not watching repeat contestants again! Same thing with Apprentice.

      No More Retreads No More Retreads No More Retreads No More Retreads

  3. ladebra says:

    Happy Monday! My alarm clock kitty slept in this morning, lol, so she’s back in bed and I’m running a little late. I caught some of the Atlanta husbands .. I must say they did well without Andy. I don’t think that format would work with the ladies. We would get massive everyone talking/screaming.

    Hope everyone has a fantastic Monday!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi there! Happy Monday to you, too! One of my sisters is in town. Gonna have an early dinner with her.

      • Jan (TexasTart) says:

        Sounds great Lainey, enjoy your time with her.
        I’m still giggling at ladebra’s alarm clock kitty said, not THIS morning, lol.

      • ladebra says:

        Sisters are the BEST! Enjoy ๐Ÿน๐Ÿ‘

    • Powell says:

      Yes ladebra they did great sans Andy. The ladies would tear each other apart. NeNe Sat w/the left side of her face showing the entire reunion. If they were on their own NeNe would have moved to another lounge area.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I don’t know Powellypooh, maybe they would behave better without Andy. A lot their ugly antics might be to show off for Andy. They Seem to be auditioning for a new contract at every reunion.

  4. HuskerHuny says:

    Thank you MTH for a season full of great recaps. I was totally stoked that father and son won (I’m picturing you cringing here). I liked them in their season before they had to self-eliminate due to dad’s injury. I really preferred the cowboys or the Globetrotters to win. Can will all get on our knees now and pray that we never, ever, ever have to watch Brenchel in another reality show? I’m fearing that they, in one way or another, will turn up on Big Brother this summer.

    • MelTheHound says:

      I won’t hold it against you HH ๐Ÿ™‚ We all had faves and one of yours won…. As I said, we’re all friends here ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I hope you had a great weekend. It’s bottom lip Monday. I hope it’s not a busy one for you. Did y’all watch the husbands of ATL? It was ok. Peter is glad he got a bravo check for filming at Bar One. I was surprised Apollo said so much.
    Well be good and have a great day.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I tried to watch the husbands, but I just don’t get them and I certainly didn’t learn anything from it. I do appreciate that they kept the drama at the door though; at least, the parts I did watch.

      • Powell says:

        Husker Apollo didn’t surprise you at admiting Phadera has worn the pants since day one & that after watching an epi she beat his azz? Lol that was funny. ๐Ÿ˜

        • HuskerHuny says:

          Wow – I didn’t see that part. I wish Phaedra would kick him to the curb already. I wouldn’t want to get on Phaedra’s bad side. Those boys are adorable.

  6. ladebra says:

    Kandi’s PR tour is starting

  7. meneseela says:

    I quit TAR after the 4th episode.
    Last night Mad Men and Game of Thrones were kind of dull.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Watching Mad Men now. Peggy is still a fascinating character, IMO.

      • Powell says:

        I caught up on the last 3 epis, not including last night’s. They are all so sad. The agency has gone to hell in a hand basket since they merged w/Price. And what’s up w/Margaret abandoning her son to live on some commune? Her mother cracked me up when she got fed up and left Roger there. And Betty is a horrible mother. “Why don’t they love me” she says about the kids.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Lots of complexities. I don’t quite “get” most of it but that’s life for some…lots of disgruntled spoiled people in the world.

    • SoutheastVA says:

      OMG re: Game of Thrones. Tyrion and Obeyron’s (spelling) conversation had me in tears. The Sansa, Littlefinger & crazy Lyssa situation had me laughing out loud. The Hound and Arya need their own show “The Odd Couple of Westeros.” And there was an old friend citing (spoiler) hopefully putting Brienne & Pod on the right road.

      • ladebra says:

        I really think that Arya is a little psychopath. She scares me! And I’m a little tired of Sansa being stupid. Those poor Stark girls – things don’t bode well for them. But then Lyssa was in that blood line and look how loopey she was lol. I am ready for Danny to kick some major butt — let those dragons out of the dungeon and start raising heck!

    • Powell says:

      It’s been so long since I quit it that I don’t remember what season it was.

  8. NMH says:

    I hated this season out of all I’ve watched. I just knew Dave and Connor were going to win. I actually wanted Brenchel to win on principle alone even tho they are incredibly annoying. At least they’re amusing to watch. Dave, Connor and blondes were downright awful by the end. I agree, NO MORE RETURNING PLAYERS!

    • MelTheHound says:

      I couldn’t agree more. I was sick of those 4 by the second episode and I am surprised it took that long..

  9. I saw the very end of TAR and I thought, “Oh Jeff isn’t going to like that.” That was stupid about the light bulbs, other final challenges had them having to remember everywhere they went and in order, etc., hard things to do. I kept making jokes, “How many blondes does it take to screw in a light bulb.”, “How many whiney butts does it take ….etc….. The only cool part was the flames from the parachute…

    I want to thank everyone for the thoughts and prayers during this last week. Today is a beautiful day, it is cool and the first day that the Air Quality Management website says that the air is Good….So windows open and getting some cool air inside. The fires are almost contained. An amazingly small number of houses were lost, but of course if it is your house it is completely devastating. I still don’t know about the lady I know and her house but from what I have seen, it doesn’t look like her house made it. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • MelTheHound says:

      About 5 minutes in I could see what was going to happen due to those infamous made for TV edits and no, I wasn’t happy about it.. That was my point.. Counting light bulbs.. Really. At least make them count All of them on the Mirage sign up there.

      I’m glad things are getting back to normal for you..

      • Things are good!! My husband set up the saw for me outside and I got all 30 cuts made! And I have my son demolishing my Master Bathroom shower, so life is good!

        • Powell says:

          Go ahead Josephine. ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Boobah says:

          Good news, PP! Relieved to hear the fires have died down. Good luck with your bathroom! I’m sure it’ll be beautiful when you’re done! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Powell says:

      PrincessP that’s good news about the air quality and the fire being contained. It’s really sad that people lost their homes. It’s always sad. I hope you find out soon about the lady.

  10. Pghemtchick says:

    Well said MTH ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was so ticked at this finale. Truth be told, I was upset when the Afganimals were eliminated. I would have rather seen the cowboys, afganimals, and globe trotters battle it out.

    I hated Connor and his dad. Well hate is a strong word, majorly disliked? I was so tired of hearing about his age and injury. Then I was annoyed that people on twitter said they ran a clean race. So openly mocking Rachel and calling her names for u turning you was a clean game? I mean it’s not like Brenchel u turned for a personal reason just game play. Attacking someone’s character or sex because you feel your entitled to special treatment cause you’re “old” is bull. Did anyone keep count of who did the challenges? People on twitter were blasting that the son did 8 roadblocks while daddy dearest did 4 or 5… Thought those had to be even?

    The singers… I’m sure they are great people, but really how did they make it so far? The cowboys shouldn’t have given them the express pass. I’d like to see a female team not use the helpless woman routine.

    Brenchel- no words.

    Where was the end puzzle to tie all the legs together? So stupid. I was so heated last night. I suppose if there is any consolation this shows ratings will prolly crash and burn as it’s no longer going to be on Sunday… I just can’t see it holding a Friday night time slot.

    Vent done… So hi everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t been around. I hope everyone is doing great! This 5-6 nights a week of baseball is slowly killing me I swear. It’s worth it to watch FB tho ๐Ÿ™‚

    • MelTheHound says:

      That’s one of the cool things about this group. You all get it..The final 3 on this show was my anyone but them list. I could have been okay with Brenchel winning to be truthful. If she had a kid maybe they wouldn’t be on these shows anymore. Correct that teams are supposed to split the roadblocks evenly, perhaps with a difference of one because there are an odd number of them. It was 8-5 on that team, and that team alone. All the others followed that rule. A show moving to Friday night is usually it’s death sentence. Only thing worse, is Saturday night. The last girl girl team I saw that I had any respect for was the Derby Moms a couple seasons ago..

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        Thanks for the great recaps, and sorry about who won. Lol about Brenchel getting pregnant. Hopefully they won’t be in this summer’s Big Brother!

  11. LaineyLainey says:

    If any of youse want to try to win the Wendy Williams hot tropics giveaway, the word of the day for Monday may 17 was “sailing”…go sign up! Maybe one of us will win!!!!!!!! Or not. Worth a try. I will keep my eye open for the word of the day, if u get it before I do, help a sister out!

  12. kit9 says:

    Sorry if this has already been mentioned…..Lynne Curtin’s youngest daughter is now a porn star. I was skeptical at first, but it’s apparently true….

    • T-Rex says:

      Oy Vey! I feel a bit sorry for the Curtins, but they were two of the worst parents out there though, so can’t say I am too surprised that their offspring decided on making money the easiest way they could, without any real skills or talent. I would take bets that these two will not be the last of the “children of the HO-wives” to peddle their wares in the porn industry.

    • BB says:

      I read that somewhere a few days ago. Is anyone shocked or surprised?

      • kit9 says:

        Sadly, no. But, man it is so depressing. What I remember about Alexa is she was depressed and insecure.

        • Powell says:

          Yeah kit. Gretchen tried to tell Lynn that Alexa was depressed and Lynn went off on Gretchen saying she had no biz talking to her like she’s a bad mother. And after Lynn encourage Gretchen to talk to Alexa.

          • MM in OC says:

            That’s when Gretchen was actually likeable. Lynn was a idiot. Really bad parenting skills (or complete lack thereof).

      • Orson says:

        Not particularly.

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      Kit, thanks for taking the time to recap Brandi’s podcasts!
      I feel sick, absolutely sick to my stomach about her two girls being in porn. They’ll never be able to do anything professional in their lives after this. I am not surprised but just feel sad for Lynn. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      • chismosaโ„ข says:

        Wait this woman has TWO daughters in porn !?!?!???????!!!!

        • kit9 says:

          No, that part is wrong. Her eldest daughter, Raquel, is posing in racy photos for a site called Suicide Girls.

          • chismosaโ„ข says:

            Oh ok – suicide girls —- that’s nice !!!!


            Thanks for clarifying ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Powell says:

      This is the one that called Lynn a bit*h when they were shopping at the mall. I can picture that scene like I just saw it. Lynn was such an understanding mom. She gave her daughter I time out and they sat while Lynn calmly discussed her daughter called her a bit*h. Damn!! Both daughters. Lynn and her ex must be proud. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Powell says:

      Oh and she better get a boob job if she’s going to make any real money.

  13. shamrockblonde says:

    thanks for the recap Jeff!! – I thought of you the entire time I was watching last night! – I really didn’t want to see any of the three teams left win so it was kind of not fun knowing that I had no team to truly root for – I will say though, that when each one was locked in that box, lit on fire and then seemingly dropped into a fire, to me at least, the most sincere reaction was Dave’s – he was really worried that something bad might happen to his son – I did not know that Connor had cancer – and beat it – what a frightening thing for anyone to go through – but when it is your child and you have to watch them fight and in your heart you yourself are terrified that you might lose this beautiful light, this beautiful being that changed your life, I can understand how much that race meant to him – Dave knew that tomorrow is not promised and that life is fragile after all – at any age – and for the record, I’m pretty sure I would have bolted toward the box when I saw it fall into the flames –

    oh and I agree with your comment to the Brenchels – finish your education Brandon!! – get a job Brandon!!! – baby or no baby these things should be your priority not being on yet another reality show and not planning a future on whether or not you win on a reality show! did you know that those two also appeard on David Tuterra wedding show? yup – he did their wedding – because we all want to be a part of that hot mess……….A child is at least 21 years of your life that will not belong to you – these two have NO – ZERO – concept of that –

    *hugs Jeff really hard*

    • MelTheHound says:

      I didn’t talk about it in the recaps but I actually seem to remember they both had cancer. First Dave and when he was cleared, they found out Conner had it.

      • shamrockblonde says:

        yes – Dave I knew about – I must have missed it about Connor – and I was shocked there was no memory challenge naming where they went and in what order! – I thought for sure that it would mess the girls up – of the three, they were the ones I did not want to see win – for a purely simple reason that sounds quite unreasonable – they charmed the express pass out of the cowboys – I think the cowboys would have given it to the globetrotters – and I like them so I was mad at them for taking away that possibility! the afghanimals were cowards that did not wish to face a true challenge and go against a really good team and that is why they uturned the cowboys so I was glad they did not win – I enjoyed watching the cowboys and globetrotters the most this season –

        Please! no more Brenchel!!! – pretty please CBS – please!

        • MelTheHound says:

          I enjoyed watching the cowboys and globetrotters the most this season

          Same here ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Powell says:

      David T huh? Shamrock I just said down thread that they may like being on reality tv like it’s their profession. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • chismosaโ„ข says:

        I find him cheesy david T. I’d watch a reality show about his divorce and custody fight though!

      • MM in OC says:

        i’ll admit I watched it. I don’t blame them. Fabulous wedding probably cost $50k and they got it for free. However, Rachel made an ass out of herself as she passed out midway through the reception. hahahaha!

    • chismosaโ„ข says:

      But wait why does the archangel Connor baby get to compete? Did he finish school? Did he go on his mission ? Was he presented at the temple yet? Is he an elder yet? They all take breaks from regular life … I thought ???… Did the poor sad old man father (he claimed he was old on a challenge) – is he still working ? I’m sure he has at least 5 kids minimum to support + the 10% yearly ‘dues’? I wonder if he took a break.
      I’m not sure maybe I’m confusing with another show where people said they quit their jobs to be on the show lol
      I could be wrong. I’m just pissed those loser faux-righteous won.

      If you have a nice touching (๐Ÿšฝ๐Ÿšฝ๐Ÿšฝ) backstory, you win with the audience.

  14. lillybee says:

    If Brenchel want a baby so bad, why didn’t they use the 500k that one of them won on big brother.

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      I think they want to be on tv for as long as possible. Brendan should’ve graduated by now, and Rachel has an engineering degree to fall back on. I bet they’ll be on Big Brother again.

      • Powell says:

        I think I saw something on 20/20 that there are courses people can take to learn how to be on reality tv. So they may like being on reality tv shows like it’s their profession. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • MelTheHound says:

      Rachel won BB13, as a retread… That was the season with other retreads, Evil DIck, his bitch of a daughter, and those two piss ant annoying ‘America’s sweethearts’, Jeff and Jordan… Couldn’t stand and still can’t, any of them..

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        It’s funny you bring up that season. I remember them changing the rules as they went so that Rachel would win. I think it was the final 5-6 that if they got with a partner (Rachel and Jordan) that they would both be safe. Well, rachel own and they were both safe…..
        I liked Racehl a little better on that season than her first.

        • MelTheHound says:

          That was my one and only season with that show.. I actually kind of enjoyed Rachel on that one (though I say I couldn’t stand any of the veterans) mostly because everyone else hated her and her whining.

          • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

            Wasn’t Danielle Donato a real bitch on that? She turned into what she hated, I guess. Would’ve loved to see Dick on that season.Hoping this season is much better.

          • MM in OC says:

            It was worse than just disliking her wining. The other contestants said really really low things about her. I think she had a pregnancy scare and they were saying they hoped she had a miscarriage or something. Really nasty. That’s when I started rooting for her (always root for the underdog). Rachel can be annoying with her whining, but no other contestant worked as hard as she did on the challenges. She totally deserved to win that year – particularly with the group think among those idiots in the house.

            • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

              MM, that’s why I rooted for her too! They were so vile towards her that you just had to cheer her on. Did you follow the 24/7 blogs? They said really mean, unnecessary things.
              I hope this year is much different. They did to bring people in that are over 30 too!

    • chismosaโ„ข says:

      The taxes on that — not to mention the taxes on the measly 1 million if they won— maybe that wouldn’t have sufficed for school loans & past bills and such.
      I was discussing an article with my friends that said it costs roughly 250k to raise a child. And that’s conservative – all public school, etc.

      Now a portion of the 1mil, less than after taxes – -> goes to the dummy mormon elders & church. Salt lake must be celebrating ๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ”ฅ
      Recruit recruit recruit! Vomit

      • shamrockblonde says:

        I had no idea what their faith was – not any of them – still glad they won instead of the blondes –

  15. VVโ„ข says:

    Is Yofo acknowledging she’s a former HW? Not sure how to take her reply.

    • Powell says:

      VV it sure sounds like it to me. If she’s dissatisfied w/how last season turned out she has no one to blame but herself. The “Take Down of Lisa” wouldn’t have ever happened if she wasn’t on board w/it. Brandi and Kyle would have folded like a poker hand if Yo would have said she didn’t want any part of it.

      • VVโ„ข says:

        I hope she’s gone.

      • MM in OC says:

        She definitely played the wrong hand. She had tons of support after her first season and all the equity washed away with her backstabbing of Lisa. She proved herself the true hollywood friend.

    • chismosaโ„ข says:

      Hola VV –
      Hope you’re well ! Long time !
      —- I am still reading on other sites that nene from Atlanta is out at the HWs show yet she was at the upfronts. I thought YoFro was at the upfront?

      Plus I agree with Simon I don’t get why they renew Jeff Lewis’ show because of the abysmal ratings this year – and Simon is right – bravo plays FAVORITES. (Patty Stinker) and now that dummy blonde who was sketchy in signing her daughter onto NJ years ago gets to come back despite that.

      Or Reza and his homosexual bad mouthing – excused.

        Hola Gossip, Chismo, Chianina, Chinamoon!
        Bravo became Trashvo or Bravoless. They need new blood over there and by that I mean all these sh*ty production companies that seem to recycle the same crap over and over and over again.

          Yeah this new “scripted” stuff. I don’t know …..

          The new shows I mean. I think it’s trying to be a combo of the old Style network with a bit of Lifetime sprinkled in and a dollop of VH1. Appeal to women. I don’t know.

          Hopefully ratings continue to plummet and you know who is out !
          Ps I have the Lisa E special to watch. Dvr’d. I heard it was great.

          Hope you’re well –

    So is Mark Ballus going to dance tonight on DWTS? I saw that he seriously injured his self practicing?
    And I’m not watching but is anyone watching The Bachelorette?

      I think I read he was treated and released so I’m sure he’ll be dancing. Just hype for the finale. Even though I don’t really care for Andy I will watch either live or on demand. It isn’t really must see TV for me anymore.

  18. Update: My son LOVES demolishing the tile. Turns out we have the worlds thickest, hardest wallboard up and the tile is ridiculous strong too and he is having the time of his life. He carefully found all the pipes and marked the wall with tape and is very proud of himself. I know now that there is no way I would have been able to do it myself….

    Yes … those of you who mentioned the great parts on Game of Thrones …

    Tyrion’s plight always moves me to tears. He has a champion to duel for him. If Peter Dinklage and dragons weren’t on the show I might never bother to watch.

    Sansa is a boring little idiot. Sorry.
    I didn’t care for her mother much either. Mom had one tone of voice, always speechifying about how tough the Starks are. Auntie scene would have been much better if Sansa had elbowed the lunatic woman into space.

    Arya and the Hound. Yes – SoutheastVA, great idea for them to have their own spin-off.

  20. I was watching The Voice but I had to shut it off, that country singer guy was hurting my ears…. off to watch Orphan Black!

    Hello everyone. RHOC did not have a new episode last night and DWTS will have a recap after tonight’s finale. Keep posting here until we have a new blog for RHONY!

      Hey tarts – thanks… have a great day. ๐ŸŒž
      HOLLA will be on WWH tonight so that should be fun.

    • Powell says:

      Good morning everyone. Happy hump day eve. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have my window open getting some air. I hope it’s nice in your neck of the woods. Have a great day everyone.

        It’s a great day here Powell! Counting down the days to my three-day weekend. It’s a long stretch from New Year’s Day to Memorial Day just to get a day off. It’s Trivia night and we need to start winning some more money as we finally ran out last week. Wish us luck!

    CBS is moving Amazing Race to Friday nights this fall. I kind of like this because it won’t be delayed due to football, basketball or golf if it were to stay on Sundays. But Friday nights are not great nights for TV watchers, but for me it’s great – Amazing Race at 7 p.m. followed by Fashion Police at 8 p.m. Bring on Friday nights!
