This is your Show Thread for The Amazing Race 8 and this is how it works:
We need people to cover the show so we can post a summary on our TAR Page. We need volunteers to commit to writing areas of the show and people who will post as they watch the show. Anyone doing screen caps can post them in this thread too. When you have written your segment, please post it here and it will get picked up and edited into our show summary.
The show is nearly here … so please step up and volunteer right away for this show. Every week we will have a new thread for a new show.
Here is what we need:
Stats Writers: Just the facts and Numbers ...
What family left and arrived in what order? (Keep track of the whole show for us)
The Feel of the show writers: Set the mood, give us the nitty gritty, who fought with whom and some great quotes.
Show - Fuskie

Previously on the Amazing Race, 4 families raced from Salt Lake City, Utah, flying hot air balloons, working on the railroad, and taking in Old Faithful. The last place Holy Rollers and DLG arrived at what they thought was the Pit Stop, only to be handed their next clue. Now they embark on part II of the 9th leg of The Amazing Race.
They receive their next clue to Turtle Range at Dubois Wyoming for their next clue. DLG calls it ridiculous. Holy Rollers head to Dubois. Blondes search for Phil, letting the Siblings pass as they try to get information from a pay phone. Blondes bicker and whine that they are eliminated. DLG talks about how they get cranky if they are not fed. Weavers stop for information and bicker about getting gas. One sister says the other is not the smartest in the group. Mom says tomorrow they will get gas.
Siblings find the ranch in 3rd place, locate Phil and are given their next clue. Sibling sister is rejuvenated. Blondes find the ranch, as one sister says she is not contributing anymore. Krissy breaks down in tears. They are given the news they are the last family to arrive, but the race is not over. Phil tells them to keep racing as the girls shout he is just torturing them. Maybe they have to go eat some turtles.
DLG is first to arrive at the Turtle Ranch 15 minutes after it closes. They will all catch up the next morning when it opens at 7am. Weavers arrive and move into their trailer rather than hang out with the other teams. Siblings pump the testosterone as they arrive at the ranch. Blondes are seeing turtle everywhere before they finally find the ranch and note that the Holy Rollers are hiding in the trailer. Sibling says it is their perception that they feel everyone is being mean to them. Holy Rollers say they don't need anyone as they turn off the night.
Dawn arrives and the ranch opens. Each team runs to a van equipped with a driver. Siblings are first, followed by Holy Rollers, DLG and Blondes. They do not know where their drivers are taking them, as Holy Rollers prays for support. They head to a hill with an Indian and a Detour. In Pioneer Spirit, teams have to attach 4 wheels to a covered wagon, hook up a team of horses, and drive a quarter mile. In Native Tradition, teams use materials and tools to provide a Teepee.
Siblings, DLG and Holy Rollers go Pioneer Spirit as Blondes choose Native Tradition. Holy Rollers change their mind and choose Native Tradition instead. One sister measures the wood spacing on the Teepee as Siblings haul wheels to their cart. They have their wheels as DLG keeps pace. The Indian chief looks on in disbelief at the white man's inability to build a Teepee. Siblings are the first to hook up their horses and head down the trail. Holy Rollers begins rolling the animal skin around their Teepee as Blondes continue to bicker.
DLG gets their horses hooked up as the Siblings pass by the Blondes, hopping they don't get beat by the Holy Rollers. Siblings complete their trek as DLG sets down the road. Siblings now head to the Irma hotel in Buffalo Wyoming in first place. They must dress up in period close and have their picture taken with Buffalo Bill to get their next clue. They are urban American cowboys. DLG completes the Detour and heads to Buffalo. Holy Rollers begins to close their Teepee as the Blondes continue to struggle. Siblings return to their trailer as Megan tries to place Buffalo Bill in historical context. DLG return to their trailer and head to Cody.
Blondes finally start working together as Holy Rollers asks the Indian Chief to approve their Teepee. Krissy supports her sisters as they complete their Teepee as the Indian Chief smiles for the first time and gives the Holy Rollers their next clue. Blondes struggle for support as Krissy grimaces under Sharon's weight as Sharon struggles to put in the top pegs that tie the Teepee together. They pull it together and the Indian Chief gives them the next clue.
Siblings arrive in Cody and ask as a passing driver for directions. DLG passes them, thinking it might have been good to ask someone. They get the name of Buffalo Bill's daughter as Siblings pass them back into first place. They park and run into the bar. DLG finds the bar but has to wait until Siblings complete the task. Holy Rollers look wistfully at the Pizza Hut and all you can eat buffet. Blondes go back through the park, minimizing the pee stops.
Siblings get dressed up and DLG laugh as the boys step out for their photograph. They get their photo after making faces at the camera. They are now sent to Red Lodge, Montana for the 10th tee on the Red Lodge golf course. Siblings head out as DLG heads into the dressing room. Holy Rollers get directions as they head into town, and wait for DLG to complete their task. DLG gets their photo and Holy Rollers begins the task. DLG dad calls it the family Christmas card.
Siblings arrive at Red Lodge and head for the clue, a Road Block. Two members of the team choose a colored flag and attach it to a golf cart. They must then travel the golf course back nine looking for 4 balls of the same color. They find their first orange ball. DLG arrives at the golf course as Dad takes the wheel of the cart, looking for their purple balls. Holy Rollers gets their picture taken and is on their way in 3rd place. Mom says the kids all look adorable except her. Blondes arrive in town and find the restaurant. They change for their picture.
Siblings find their 2nd orange ball. DLG gets their 3rd ball. Holy Rollers wonders what the 10th tee means, until Rolly tells them it is golf. Blondes play with Buffalo Bill as they wait for their picture and the hostess looks on in disgust. Siblings miss an orange ball in the hole. Holy Rollers arrives at the golf course. Siblings head back to check the holes as Holy Rollers begins the Road Block with Rolly and Mom. DLG gets their final ball and receives their next clue to the Pitt Stop.
DLG heads to the Green Meadow Ranch. The Siblings find their last ball and completes the Road Block in 2nd place. They are upset they were too stupid to look in the hole. Blondes arrive at the golf course, and mention they see the Holy Rollers sisters just sitting on the ground. The Holy Rollers sisters hear them and are disgusted. Blondes get their first ball with Michelle screaming at Sharon. Sharon jumps out of the cart, refusing to drive with her sister. She finally gets back on the back.
Siblings and DLG search for the Green Meadows Ranch, as Holy Rollers gets their 4th red ball and heads to the Pit Stop in 3rd place. Blondes find 3 balls, and their fourth in the hole. They complete the Road Block and head to the Pit Stop, hoping the Holy Rollers car breaks down. DLG finds the ranch and searches for Phil. Siblings are right behind them. DLG arrives and the race is on. DLG is the first team to arrive, and will be one of three teams racing for the finish line. They also win a brand new Buick. Siblings arrive in 2nd place and will be one of the families racing to the finish line.
Holy Rollers are pulled over by an officer for speeding in a 25mph zone. Blondes search for the ranch as the officer gives Holy Rollers a warning. Blondes continue to search as Holy Rollers are back on the road with a low fuel level. Holy Rollers find the ranch, followed by the Blondes. Holy Rollers are the 3rd team to arrive and will be one of three teams that will race in the finals for $1,000,000. The Godlewski family arrives in last place and is eliminated from the race. They express relief it is over, Sharon and Kris saying their relationship will not improve when they get home. They are sisters who love each other even if they don't like each other every minute.
There are only three teams left. Find out next week who will win The Amazing Race.
Who is glad to be back in the saddle again…
