The teams have to decide which airport to take to the destination. Once they arrive in South Africa, they must take yet another flight. Before ultimately get to Songwe Village, they must find beautiful Victoria Falls. From there, they must get to Knife's Edge, a cliff. There, they must bungee jump and glide across a rope, eventually getting to the other side. The Pit Stop is located in Songwe Village. Rob and Brennan obtain the Fast Forward near Victoria Falls, allowing them to avoid all other tasks and go straight to the Pit Stop. Matt and Ana are the last to arrive and are eliminated.

Once in Paris,the teams must find a monument through a telescope. For some of the teams this is easy but for others, proves extremely difficult. Kim and Leslie are the last to

Kevin and Drew decide to go for the Fast Forward, where they have to retrieve it from a local coffee shop. Then they must head directly to the pit stop which is located in Chateau Les Baux.

Colossal Showdown Oct 4, 2001 The teams start off at the Chateau Les Baux in Paris, France. The first task is to find a man in a red hat, standing under a miniature Arc de Triomphe. All they have to discover where the man is located, is a flag and a picture of the man. It seems clear that the alliance between Frank/Margarita, Rob/Brennan and Joe/Bill has officially crumbled. The teams discover that the flag is from Tunisia. Before this discovery, some guess Turkey or Morocco. Paul/Amie at departure, notice the cab they had previously ordered the night before is not there. This causes some anger and Paul debates quitting. All the teams must get to Tunisia. Most take plane but some take boat. When they find the man, they are given a Detour. They must take a ""Full Body Massage"" or ""Full Body Brew"", involving coffee. They must with the given map find one of these two places in busy crowded streets. When these tasks are completed they must get to El Jem Coliseum.

Desert Storm Oct 11, 2001 The seven remaining teams start off in El Jem Coliseum, the pit stop for the fourth leg. Upon departure they are given a route marking which tells them they must find a monument known as the Tataouine which is 300 miles away. Although Paul and Amie arrived fifth in the last leg, production problems cause them to move ahead one place in front of Frank and Margarita. When the teams arrive at the Tataouine, they are given a Detour. They must chose between an easy and a difficult game. The easy game is at a hard to find location and the hard game is at an easy to find location. The games are called ""Puzzle"" and ""Listening"" .All the teams chose Listening in which they must find the clue using a walkie talkie and find where the other one is. There they will find the clue. The clue says that must find a ""yellow and white flag"" in the middle of the Sahara Desert and that there are rocks to guide them there. Some teams are a little bit confused as to how the rocks guide them there. But eventual

Joe and Bill are the first to arrive at the clue. They must get to a spot outside the famous Coliseum in Rome. The teams head to the Tunisian airport. Tensions are high at the airport. At one point, Drew ask Team Guido if they want to have one of their legs broke. Joe and Bill laugh at this and don't see it as a threat. Drew then tells the team he was joking. Joe and Bill are the first of the teams to get tickets on the plane and are the last tickets on that flight. When the other teams arrive at the airport, the Guido's (all ready to go) decide to spy on the other teams and at one point, decide to eavesdrop. Teams are getting extremely frustrated when they learn of the air strike in Rome. They are having serious trouble getting tickets.

Triumph and Loss Oct 25, 2001 Tensions are high and it seems that Team Guido is separated from the rest of the group, socially. Teams are still distraught about what happened in the previous leg. The teams are in Rome. Frank and Margarita are the first to leave the pit stop. The first clue is a Detour. The teams must chose between ""Glide"" and ""Ride."" In ""Glide"" the teams must take a glider to the next location and in ""Ride,"" the teams must take a set of bikes to the next location, which is Ferrara. However, the teams must note there is only one glider so they may have to wait for another team to finish the task before they can start. It's first come, first served. Frank and Margarita decide to go for the fast forward which is hidden in a moat at a castle. Rob and Brennan decide to do the glider and are the first to arrive there. Joe and Bill decide to do the biking, where they must find the bike shop. Frank and Margarita obtain the Fast Forward and start heading straight to the pit stop; New Dehli, India. Nancy/Emi

Welcome to the World of Being Human Apr 4, 2002 The teams travel from their pit stop at Anani Lodge to Bangkok. They all fight for planes, but the airport ends up being the usual great equalizer. In Bangkok, they take part in a Detour in which they must choose between Confusion Now and Confusion Later. Confusion Now involves finding the correct taxi at a water taxidock, while Confusion Later involves burning a paper car as a spiritual offering. The teams split the choices, some encountering difficulties. One team loses valuable time after going to the wrong shrine.

There are 11 teams left and Ken & Gerard are the first to depart at 10:36 PM. The clue says to drive 133 miles to the Pyramid of the Sun in Tehutecan. Ken & Gerard discuss how they've nicknamed their team ""Oh Brother,"" that way the other teams will say things like ""Oh Brother, they're passing us again."" Flo and Zach and Aaron and Arianne arew orking together. Flo says that there's sexual tension between Aaron and Arianne. Michael and Kathy head off, followed by John Vito and Jill.

Cheaters Never Win --- And They Cheated! May 30, 2003 The fourth season premieres, again with twelve teams, this time beginning in LA's Dodger Stadium. The teams rush off and drive to the LAX airport, trying to land seats on one of three airlines. Swiss Air and Lufthansa both depart at the same time; however Swiss Air is scheduled to arrive in Milan a good forty minutes earlier. KLM leaves about an hour later, and will carry the remaining teams. Steve and Josh, apparently wanting to take advantage of a possible alliance with Steve and Dave (the air traffic controllers), buy tickets for them, costing Monica/Sheree and Chip/Reichen their seats on the Swiss Air flight, and their place in line. This leads to accusations of cheatings, as referenced in the episode title. Teams arrive in Milan and must search for their first clue, which was to find charter bus tickets hidden in various spots within the Galleria Victoria, a pedestrian mall. There are three available slot times for bus departures: 2 AM, 4 AM, and 6 AM. Teams are taken to the Dolom

It Doesn't Say Anything About First Come, First Served. And We're Bigger. Jun 6, 2003 The teams continue from the pit stop and participate in Italian snow rafting. They then head to Venice, where they are faced with a Detour: Waterway or Pathway. After the Detour, the teams are all bunched togehter by a five P.M. opening for their location, except for Steve and dave, who use the Fast Forward to advance to first place at the pit stop. The teams participate in the Roadblock, which involves trying to match a photo of a mask with one being worn by someone at a party. However, there are many similar masks, so the task proves somewhat difficult. Chris has extreme difficulty with the task and hands the photo of the mask to the incorrect person twice, each time being forced to go to the back of the line. This creates significant difficulty, as only four racers are allowed in at a time. He finally finds the correct person, but it is too late and he and Amanda reach the pit stop last and are eliminated from the race.

I Wasn't Even Going to Touch You Until You Slammed My Head Backwards! Jun 13, 2003 The teams travel from Italy to Vienna, Austria. There, horse-riding creates confusion when teams fail to follow a clue that states that you must grab a tag before boarding the horses. A Detour - Mozart or Beethoven creates confusion and tension when teams realize that the Beethoven option was as simple as it sounded. And Steve and Dave, after claiming the Fast Forward the previous week, fall far behind, but a stroke of luck keeps them in the race and Cindy and Russell are eliminated.
S04 E04Jun 20, 2003
Check Your Tires Because...Oh God, You Never Know What'll Happen! Jun 20, 2003 The teams start by traveling to France. Transportation confusion with trains and jets causes some teams into the lead to fall behind, while others reach the route marker in France early. There, they're surprised to find themselves faced with a Roadblock rather than a Detour. The Roadblock involves changing the tires on a race car and then doing a lap with a professional driver. All teams succesfully complete the task and then head to the next location, a lighthouse over 500 miles away. However, they find themselves all bunched together by the morning opening hours. Some teams check into a hotel, while others choose to wait by the side of the road. When Tian and Jaree arrive the next morning, after checking into a hotel, they're escorted to a parking spot by police. However, the teams on the side of the road cry foul, thinking that they're cutting in line. In the end, the original line is preserved and the fussing was for nothing. The teams receive a clue taking them to the Georges de B

You Are Just Deliberately Trying to Make Us Lose! Jun 27, 2003 The teams travel from France to Amsterdam, Holland. Most teams are able to get flights, but David and Jeff and Steve and Dave have to head to another airport and lose critical time when they are caught in a bad traffic jam. In Amsterdam, teams must go boating to a museum and this leads to massive confusion, particularly for the team of Tian and Jaree. In the Detour, teams must choose between 500 Kg or 15 Feet. In 500 Kg, they drive 30 miles and then weight out 500 Kg of cheese and in 15 ft., they have to drive only 12 miles and search through cow manure for their clue. Most teams go for the cow manure, but a couple of them opt for the cheese. Afterwards, they face a Roadblock in which they must gather 25 live eels. In the end, despite serious fighting between Tian and Jaree, they manage to squeak past Steve and Dave, who, after narrowly escaping elimination in past weeks, are eliminated from the race.

Clearly, I'm More Intelligent Than You Jul 7, 2004 The teams take off from Santa Monica Pier, Los Angeles. Viewers learn about a couple of interesting twists: those who finish last on non-elimination legs will be penalized and there's a new element in play called the Yield. The Yield allows a team to keep any other team from racing for a set period of time, but it can only be used once during the race. The teams scramble to catch flights, some not realizing that the flight that departs later actually arrives at their destination, Urugauy, first. The teams navigate through a series of clues, catching ferries and carrying meat to finally reach the game's first Detour: Zips or Chips. Jim is injured early, but still manages to make the fast flight. Two teams make a critical mistake and are sent away from the pit stop, but still manage to make it without being eliminated.

It Turned Ugly Just Now Jul 14, 2004 The teams head to Montevideo in Uruguay, where they visit a foam discoteque and pop rubber balls to find clues. They all end up in the same ferry and feel the pressure of being bunched together after having been in various positions. They travel to Buenos Aires, where they take part in a Detour, Perro or Tango, in which you have to choose between walking eight dogs for about a mile, or instead first travel about a mile and a half for the Tango. In the Tango, the teams receive a photo and then try to identify one man from a group of people dancing the tango. The Tango turns out to be the better choice, because the dog-walking takes a long time and the dogs are difficult to control. After completing one of those two, the teams participate in a Roadblock in which they have to remove a scarf from a calf. Fortunes change for the teams, as many who were behind end up advancing, while Alison and Donny are eliminated.

There, after finding the mayor, they participate in a Roadblock that involves finding one of twenty chocolates with white filling from a group of 11,000. Marshall and Lance struggle with the challenge, while Jim and Marsha fall behind after catching a late flight. After completing the Roadblock, the teams head to a scenic mountain for the Detour. Though given a choice between Smooth Sailing (paragliding) and Rough Riding (mountain biking six miles), all teams choose the much faster paragliding option. They then make their way to the pit stop at an unnamed island on Bahia Lopez. Jim and Marsha fight hard to remain in the race, but arrive too late and are eliminated.

Who Says Pageant Girls Don't Eat? Jul 28, 2004 The eight teams receive a clue telling them to get from the Pit Stop to the Battleship Aurora --- its guns signaled the start of the Russian Revolution. The trip is long, a twenty-hour bus ride, followed by a 8,000 mile flight to Russia. The jockeying and bickering immediately begin at the bus station, but some patient planning pays off for a few teams who take a later bus that makes less stops and then visit a travel agent. Some unfortunate airport luck leaves Bob and Joyce catching a later flight and striving to remain in the race. In St. Petersburg, Russia, the teams get a Detour clue to choose either a hockey challenge: Block Five Shots, or a drinking challenge: drink one shot. The choices are about evenly split and no team has a particularly tough time at the Detour. What many do have a very tough time with is the Roadblock, which involves eating two pounds of caviar. Christie struggles and her and Colin's lead evaporates, along with Brandon and Nicole, when Nicole passes out. Tea

Are You Good at Puzzles? Aug 4, 2004 The teams start at the Pit Stop, Catherine's Palace, where they're then directed to head to St. Petersburg and find a painting in an art museum: Rembrandt's ""The Return of the Prodigal Son."" The teams are then instructed to fly 2,000 miles to Cairo, Egypt. The teams consider their flight options and Colin and Christie score big by doing their research. They score a flight that arrives many hours before the others and Fast Forward into the lead with a task that involves transporting a sarcophagus. They check in to a nice lead at Egypt's Sphinx. The other teams arrive in Egypt where they take part in a Roadblock: Who's up for going down? They must carry up a bag of artifacts from a deep hole. They then take part in the Detour: Rock and Roll or Hump and Ride. In an odd twist, only Charla and Mirna get the Hump and Ride option because this horse-riding task shuts down at 5:30 P.M. The other teams must haul rocks and Linda and Karen are the last team to check in. They're not eliminated, but

Colin and Christie find that opening times cause their large lead to evaporate, but they manage to get in some much-needed extra sleep. The teams participate in a Detour â€“ Herd It or Haul it. The herding involves traveling five miles and then herding sheep and goats, while the hauling is a three mile trip and then hauling water on a slow donkey. Although only two teams choose the hauling option, it seems to be the faster. The teams then participate in a Roadblock in which one team-member becomes an archaeologist and they search for scarabs. The episode ends in a surprise ending with something that has never before happened on The Amazing Race.

After high tension at an airport, two teams book what they hope will be a faster flight, but find that a delay places them in the back of the pack. Once in Kenya, the teams take buses to a Detour: Buzzing or Busy. The Buzzing option is potentially faster and involves collecting honey from a hive of Africanized bees, while the Busy option involves furniture delivery. All teams opt to stay away from the bees and deliver the furniture. They then make their way to a Roadblock in which the task is to eat scrambled ostrich egg - an amount that's about twenty times that of a single chicken egg. It's a close call, but in the end a team that was a favorite of many is eliminated from The Amazing Race.

The Game's Afoot Nov 17, 2004 The teams take off from the United States to Iceland, racing to make one of three flights that connect to Iceland. Weather delays move some teams from first to last, but the teams all end up together at Europe's largest glacier. After doing some snowmobiling, they camp on the glacier for the night and then take charters leaving at half-hour intervals determined by tickets they pulled from their tents. Their next clue brings them to Glacier Ice Beach, where they have a Detour choice of Ice Climb or Ice Search. Most teams opt for the Ice Climb, which involves climbing up a glacier using special gear. Three go for the Ice Climb, which involves searching a seven square-mile area for an orange buoy. This allows some teams to finish fast, but leaves one hopelessly lost for a good while. Ultimately, the 200 mile drive to the Pit Stop at the Blue Lagoon determines the final results, as one team is too late to find the check-in area and is eliminated.

I'm Not His Wife -- He Doesn't Need to Scream at Me Nov 24, 2004 The teams travel from their Pit Stop at the Blue Lagoon in Iceland over 1,000 miles to Oslo, Norway. Once there, they travel to a ski jump where they find themselves facing a Roadblock. In this Roadblock one team member must perform an ""Olympian"" feat --- sliding down a long zip-line. They then visit a Viking Village where they stay the night. In the morning, the teams split up into two groups of their choice and then compete to paddle boats across the lake. One team makes a critical mistake. At the Detour, the teams must choose between Endurance or Accuracy. Endurance in involves rollerblading one and three quarter miles, while Accuracy involves participating in three grueling challenges. Many teams initially choose Endurance and then opt to do Accuracy instead. Later, the critical mistake comes back to bite the team that made it --- but the thirty minute time penalty might not be enough to cause their elimination.

Counting Bears Is Not Rocket Science Dec 1, 2004 The teams continue to Stockholm, Sweden, but not before one is assessed a penalty for events in the previous episode. The teams make their way to an ice bar, where they must slide a shot glass made of ice across a bar and hit a target. The teams then continue to the world's largest Ikea, where they face a Detour. Both tasks seem rather difficult, one called Count requires successfully counting 2,304 objects, while the other called Build requires successful, proper building of a desk. Some initially choose the counting and ditch it for the Desk option. Many who choose the counting fall dangerously behind. A Roadblock involves rolling rough bales of hay to find hidden clues. There are 270 bales of hay and only 20 clues. This proves very exhausting for many teams and the possible downfall of one. After no teams choose to use a Yield, they check into the Pit Stop at Auf Chapman, Stockholm, but one team does not share their fate.

What if It Isn't Sanitary Dec 8, 2004 The teams continue from Stockholm, Sweden to Africa. They first have to find a clue at a Town Hall Center Tower where some teams are embarrassed but ultimately don't lose ground after misreading an opening time. In Dakar, Sengal, Africa, the teams must find a gravesite of a famous poet and some fall slightly behind for a while on a bit of bad information. Later, they face a Detour in which they must choose between Stack 'Em Up or Pack 'Em Up --- two tasks involving fish. Stack 'Em Up, which involves stacking the fish in a pile, seems to be the faster choice, but a few teams opt for the fishing and fall behind. Later, a Roadblock involves hauling salt out of a red lake called Lac Rose. The race to the finish is close, but one team is in for some good news.

Quit Following Us Dec 15, 2004 The teams take off from their Pit Stop in Africa, first traveling to a slave-house where slaves were held until heading to the New World. There, a memorial to those slaves particularly touches Gus and has him appreciating the human aspect of The Amazing Race. Next, the teams fly to Germany where they search for a clue along the remains of the Berlin Wall. After some teams have confusion about finding the clue, they travel to a statue of busted chains near a church that was partially destroyed in World War II. A Detour has teams choose between linking sausages or going to a Beer House to search for their pictures on coasters and exchanging them for cups of beer at a Beer House. Later, the teams encounter a Roadblock in which one member must race a soapbox car down a mountain. In the end, one team's mistake makes for another rather close finish.
S06 E06Dec 22, 2004
They Should Probably Have Some Counseling Dec 22, 2004 The teams continue racing in Germany where a Roadblock has them bungee-jumping. One team-member nearly passes out from exhaustion but is okay and continues on with the race. The teams fly next 450 miles to Budapest, Hungary. Once there, hijinks ensue when the teams are forced to travel in local cars that are notorious for their unreliability. Many teams have breakdowns and are forced to get new cars, or have mechanical work done. Once they've navigated their way, they arrive at a Detour: Catapault Crash or Cannon Run. After the teams complete the Detour, they receive a clue telling them to make their way to the Net Klub Internet Cafe where they'll receive an online clue. By the end of the episode, some teams had not yet even made it to the cafe, which hadn't yet opened.

Courteous? This Is a Race! Mar 2, 2005 A new group of teams takes off from Long Beach, California on two flights to Lima, Peru. The new teams include ""Survivor couple"" Rob and Amber, son and mother Susan and Patrick and pals Ryan and Chuck, among others. Once in Peru, the teams follow clues taking them many miles to various destinations and exploring the country and its mountains. Tasks include riding ziplines and traveling by several forms of local transportation. Several teams fall behind after carelessly not searching carefully before locking in times on a task that put them behind the rest of the pack. Many teams express a desire to outfox, outwit and outrace Rob and Amber. A Detour, Rope a Llama or Rope a Basket, gives teams a choice of either leading llamas into pins or carrying heavy baskets two-thirds of a mile. Some teams struggle with the llamas, while other teams breeze through their chosen task. A true photo finish of mere seconds sends one team home.

The Whole Country Hates Me Mar 9, 2005 The teams receive a clue taking them from their Pit Stop at the La Moset Church to Arequipa, also known as the white city, where they must find a shoe union. After some jockeying for position, all teams end up taking the same ten hour bus ride and one racer pays the driver to open only the front doors when they arrive. Once at the shoe union, the teams do a Roadblock that requires them to shine five pairs of shoes and earn five Peruvian sols. Some teams use charm to complete the task quickly, while others find it hard to convince the locals to stop. The next clue sends the teams on two different flights to Santiago, Chile, leaving and arriving 45 minutes apart. Once in Chile, the teams do a Detour: Shop or Schlep. Several teams choose Schlep, which involves hauling 180 books eight blocks, while the remaining teams choose to Shop for five different ingredients at local markets. Strategy comes into play as the teams figure out the best way to complete the tasks and one team has a run-in

Do You Need Some Mouth-to-Mouth Resuscitation Mar 16, 2005 The teams receive a clue telling them to travel 150 miles from their Pit Stop in Saro, Santo Lucia to a bridge in Argentina. Spurred by a warning about an upcoming Yield, the teams finagle for transportation, with one team earning hostility by snatching another team's cab. The teams make their way to Nortes Sur and one team goes dangerously off-track. Eventually, the teams reach both the Yield (which none choose to use) and a Detour: Paddle or Pedal. Most teams choose Paddle, which involves rafting seven miles with professionals, but one falls behind after getting a flat tire while doing the biking task --- Pedal. Later, the teams reach a Roadblock that involves eating four pounds of traditional Argentine food. One team-member, feeling that there's no way he can complete this, decides to take a four-hour penalty, and then convinces others to do it as well. It comes down once again to a rather close and somewhat surprising finish.

What a Gaucho You Are Mar 23, 2005 The teams take off from their Pit Stop, a ranch in Mendoza, to Cabana La Guatana, 25 miles away. While several teams enjoy a nice lead following the four-hour penalties taken by teams the previous week, others scramble to catch up. The teams take part in a Roadblock that involves riding a horse to spear a ring in under 40 seconds and one team manages a last-second catch-up, to the shock and surprise of the top teams from the previous week. As these teams enjoy a nice lead, the others struggle to catch up and avoid being eliminated. The Detour for this episode is Shipwreck or Island --- search a seven mile radius for a Shipwreck or find a flag on an island. Generally, most teams complete this with ease, although some have problems with their boats and one is even surprised when they end up at the island when they were looking for the shipwreck. It's another close finish as the trailing teams race for the Pit Stop, hoping to avoid elimination.

I've Been Wanting a Face-Lift for a Long Time Mar 30, 2005 In a two-hour episode, the teams travel from the Pit Stop at a polo club called The Martina to Johannesburg, South Africa. Once there, they take part in a Detour that involves either rappelling into and then searching an underground cavern or collecting five items and giving them to the appropriate tribes. Later, the teams do a Roadblock that requires them to search a market for five items and then deliver them to a local orphanage. As the teams race to complete these tasks, one pulls ahead with a Fast Forward, while one team-member suffers a nasty injury. It ends up being a tight finish, but all teams continue onwards for the next leg. This leg sees the teams traveling to a nature reserve, where they one of two scheduled shuttles and feed lions. Later, the Roadblock involves throwing spears. Afterwards, the teams ride Humvees and choose between a Detour task of grinding corn or filling ostrich eggs with water.

Some teams have trouble finding the water tower, initially heading to another, but once there, all take part in a Detour. The choice is Carry It or Milk It, which involves either carrying baskets filled with food and water using only your heads, or milking goats until you've filled a ten-ounce cup. Most teams choose to milk the goats, but one team gives a skilled performance on the basket-carrying and is able to finish quickly. The teams continue onward to a Roadblock, one suffering some major problems with their vehicles along the way. The Roadblock, which involves driving through crocodile-infested waters and then removing logs, also proves confusing for some teams. In the end, one team is unable to recover from an initial mistake and is eliminated, despite an amusing plea to stay in the race.

This Detour requires them to choose between Forrest Gump and Muddy Waters --- the first task requiring them to dehead shrimp, while the second involves riding through a muddy 4x4 course.

Once in Ecuador, the teams takes taxis to the Plaza San Francisco and then travel to Pim's Restaurant, three-miles away, where they receive one of three fifteen-minute staggered departure times for the next morning. That morning, teams make their way to the Hacienda Yarahurco in the Cotopaxi National Park, guided by a provided map and with the advice to head to the north entrance. Once teams arrive, they take part in a Detour that involves either searching for missing items from the uniform of a soldier or wrangling and then grooming a horse. Several teams find themselves at the wrong end of the massive park, a costly mistake for one team that ultimately leads to their elimination.

Beauty Is Sometimes Skin Deep Feb 26, 2007 The teams take off from their Pit Stop, an active volcano at Mirador Cotopaxi. They receive a clue instructing them to travel 7,400 miles to Santiago, Chile and then take a taxi for 17 miles to the headquarters of Codelco. There, the teams take part in a Roadblock that is ultimately rendered largely meaningless when they all make the same flight traveling 230 miles to Chuquicamatta in Calama, Chile. Once at their destination, the teams put on their safety gear and take part in a Detour that requires them to choose between two tasks traditionally involved in Chilean mining operations. The teams then use marked vehicles to travel the treacherous Valley of the Moon before emerging on safer ground and heading for the Pit Stop at the Valley of the Dead. One team makes a crucial mistake by failing to properly read a clue and posted signs regarding a speed limit. Due largely to this mistake, they fall behind and are eliminated from the race.

I'm Sorry I'm Wearing a Bathing Suit. It Is Very Weird, I Know Mar 5, 2007 The nine remaining All-Star teams receive a clue that directs them to travel from their Pit Stop at the Valley of the Dead in Chile four miles to a church in the village of San Pedro de Atacona by the same name. There, they find that they must fly 800 miles to Puerto Montt and then drive 30 to fishery in Metri. As teams maneuver for flights, several find themselves behind when they are unable to catch an early flight, but catch a small break when the flight arrives slightly early. At the fishery, one member of each team completes a Roadblock that requires them to transfer fish from one tank to another. Afterwards, the teams travel fifty miles to Petrohue and find La Maquina, a popular spot for adventure spots. All teams take part in a watery Detour and one loses time-but not position-after neglecting to pick up a clue. Ultimately, one team is unable to make up time after struggling to find the Detour location and is eliminated from the race.
S11 E04Mar 12, 2007
No Babies on the Race! Mar 12, 2007 Eight All-Stars teams take off from their Pit Stop at the Playa Petrohue and receive a clue instructing them to fly 800 miles to Punta Arenas, Chile and then take taxi fifteen miles to Lord Lansdale's shipwreck. The teams arrive on two flights and take part in a Detour, where lack of attention-to-detail allows teams on a later flight to catch up to teams that had gained a lead. One team experiences a near-meltdown during the Detour, but regroups and rallies by switching tasks. Meanwhile, a previous top team finds itself falling behind. The teams take two charter flights leaving three hours apart and find themselves faced with a Roadblock that requires one member of each team to sort through mail. As reward, each team receives a message from a past team, some negative and some positive. One team lies to another, hoping to gain an advantage. This team, however, is ultimately unable to recover from falling behind and is eliminated from the race.

You Need To Watch Your Jokes, Guy Mar 19, 2007 The remaining seven teams take off from their Pit Stop at the "End of the World" in Argentina and travel to the nearby Marshall Mountain chain, where they hike a half a mile and then use an avalanche beacon to search for another containing a clue. The clue instructs them to fly 7,000 miles to Naputo, Mozambique. Though teams are provided with tickets arriving at 3 P.M., all successfully negotiate tickets for an earlier flight arriving at 9 A.M. They then travel 45 miles via provided cars to the Apopo Training Field where one member of each team takes part in a Roadblock involving trained rats. After completing this task, they then face a Detour that involves either fancy fingernail-care or heavy lifting. Teams race for the Pit Stop, where two teams have a foot-race that leads to virtual tie. One team arrives last but is delighted to learn that they are not eliminated.
S11 E06Mar 26, 2007
We're Going to Trade You for Food Now Mar 26, 2007 Teams take off from the their Pit Stop at Fort Aleza in Maputo, Mozambique and are instructed to fly to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, 1,400 miles away. A scramble for flights immediately begins and teams find that flight placement in this leg plays a major role in where they will ultimately end up. One team makes a risky move in opting to take standby-only seats on a flight, which ultimately gains them valuable time and allows them to arrive in first. One team is disappointed when they believe they have secured seats on a flight, but are removed, told that they had been given the seats in error. Once in Mozambique, teams takes one of four dhows (ferries) into Zanzibar, where they then take part in a Roadblock that requires them to choose between either a task that "taxes the mind" or one that "taxes the muscles." They then traveled 15 miles by taxi to the "bush country" of Kikungwi for a Roadblock that involved skill and accuracy. In a leg that involved a great disparity between first and last, a close finish led to the elimination of another team.

Donkeys Have Souls, Too Nov 5, 2007 The teams take off from the Pit Stop at the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills, California and are instructed to fly to Shannon, Ireland. A flight delay leaves teams that thought they were ahead scrambling to catch up. The teams travel to the world's smallest church and then sign up for one of the three ferries departing the next morning. They're then directed to drive 42 miles to Cleggan farm where they must ride a tandem bike to a clue. One member of each team then completes a task that involves more biking -- highwire bicycling while their teammate rides below. Many teams are then frustrated by a task that requires them to fill a basket with fifteen pieces of peat and then transport it using a donkey. Controlling the donkeys proves more difficult for some teams than others and once again some leading teams take a plunge. Ultimately, one team is unable to recover from poor performance on this task and is eliminated from the race.

Taking off from their Pit Stop in the village of Bingo, they received an offering of a chicken from a local chief and then were instructed to travel 100 miles by taxi Bouda Pelegtanga and find their next clue. Once there, teams were faced with a Detour that tested their skills at either panning for gold or rhythmic dancing. Some teams were slowed by a penalty when their dancing didn't measure up, while others zipped ahead. One team was hit with a new twist in the race requiring them to do additional work. Teams eventually traveled to the Tampouy Goat Market by taxi, where a Roadblock involving a goat proved frustrating for several racers. One team was unable to catch up after having lagged behind the entire race. They arrived at the Pit Stop at the Hotel de Ville and received the unfortunate news that they were eliminated.

All teams must first travel by bus to Split, Croatia. All teams make the same ferry, but tricky driving in Ancona causes delays for several teams, such that only two have arrived when the Roadblock opens at 7 A.M. at the Roadblock. One racer struggles repeatedly at the Roadblock, while another team advances their position by opting for a Fast Forward that requires a major physical alteration. Along the way, teams receive a message from home on a Blackberry, which is not allowed to be used for any other purpose. One team is frustrated when they lose their clue. One racer becomes frustrated with their partner during a difficult driving situation, ordering them to "stop this car!" Another team faces a flat-tire, but overcomes the difficulty to avoid last place. The team checking into the Pit Stop at the Boboli Gardens in Florence, Italy is surprised and delighted to learn that they are not eliminated, though less delighted to learn that they will be faced with an additional task on the next leg.

Bees are Much Calmer than All This! Sep 29, 2008 To start the thirteenth season of The Amazing Race, eleven teams are transported by classic cars to the Los Angeles Coliseum. After receiving a set of initial instructions, they all scramble for clues which direct them to travel on one of two flights to Salvador, Brazil. Several teams are excited to catch the earlier flight, but disappointed when a delay shaves an hour an a half off the three hour lead that they had hoped to enjoy. The teams are directed to find a sandwich shop called O Rei Do Pernil, where they then receive a task instructing them to become old school barristas. They deliver a cart to a man named India in a coffee shop called Parąca de Se, who then gives them a clue directing them to a Brazilian military base. The teams spend the night at the military base and then depart in three groups-- one leaving at 9 in the morning, one at 9:30 and a final one at 9:45. The teams find a church in Pelourinho, the historic center of Salvador and also find a Detour involving a choice of upward or downward travel. One team makes a critical mistake at their task, forcing them to repeat previous actions. Ultimately, however, it is another team who is unable to overcome both their early mistakes and slow progress and is eliminated from the race

Do You Like American Candy? Oct 6, 2008 The ten remaining teams take off from their Pit Stop in a seventh century fortress in Salvador, Brazil and receive a clue instructing them to fly to Fortaleza, Brazil. Tensions erupt when one team feels they secured an early flight for all teams and seeks a small compensation in return. Once in Fortaleza, the teams receive a clue instructing them to travel to a beach known as Barraca d Manoel. Here, a Detour choice allows one team to set itself apart from the pack by providing a task suited to their skills. Later, a Roadblock requires searching for a clue hidden in plain sight. While some find the clue almost right away, others waste time searching for non-existent leads in distracting advertising information. One team twice makes time-wasting clue-reading mistakes, but ultimately another team is eliminated.
S13 E03Oct 13, 2008
Did You Push My Sports Bra Off the Ledge? Oct 13, 2008 The remaining teams are instructed to fly from Fortaleze, Brazil to La Paz, Bolivia, but not before a rivalry between two teams heats up at the Pit Stop. The teams fly 1,200 miles and find themselves in area that is over 12,000 feet above sea level, leaving some racers struggling to breathe the thin air. The teams camp beside a local statue and then take a newspaper delivery. They scour the newspapers for a clue, which instructs them to travel to the Narvaez Hat Shop in Plaza Mario and then purchase a traditional cholita hat to receive their next clue. This clue turns out to be a Detour, in which the teams face a choice between a task that is arduous but not overly physical or one likely to leave less physically inclined teams winded. After completing this tax, the teams travel by taxi eight miles to Los Titanes del Ring, where a Roadblock sends one member of each team up against a female wrestler. Many teams struggle at this task, but ultimately one team is done in not so much by their poor performance as by their failure to properly read the instructions given in a clue. They check in last at the Pit Stop, the hilltop park of Mirador el Monticulo, and are eliminated

I Wonder If They Like Blondes in New Zealand? Oct 20, 2008 At the Pit Stop in La Paz, Bolivia, frustrations continue to build between two teams. The remaining teams receive a clue instructing them to fly 6,900 miles to Auckland, New Zealand. There, the teams face tricky nighttime navigation to the Gulf Harbor, where they must untie a Gordian knot. Inside the knots, the teams find a clue instructing them to travel to Mount Eden, a dormant volcano and Auckland's highest point. The knots also include a clue for the Fast Forward, which one team successfully completes, providing a break from the leg's challenging and often frustrating tasks. The other teams forge ahead with those tasks, first completing a detail-oriented Roadblock. They then travel to the City Life Hotel and search for Travelocity gnomes from the rooftops. After finding the gnomes, the teams receive a clue instructing them to drive to Kiwi 360°, a local landmark. The teams then face a Detour choice between two tasks that are both gruelingly physical in their own way. One racer is injured during one of these tasks, but plows ahead nevertheless. Ultimately, two teams fight it out on separate tasks late at night, but one ends up being too late and is eliminated from the race
S13 E05Oct 27, 2008
Do It Like a Madman Oct 27, 2008 The seven remaining teams take off from their Pit Stop at Summer Hill in New Zealand and receive a clue instructing them to fly over 5,600 miles to Siem Reap, Cambodia. The teams scramble for flights, with one team that was running behind catching a critical flight that enables them to catch up with all other teams. In Siem Reap, the teams travel to a roadside pumping station where they're instructed to use a hand pump to fill a truck with 25 liters of fuel to receive their next clue. The teams are then driven in their trucks to Siem Reap Harbor and then make their way by motorized boats to the waterfront community of Kho Andeth. One team is forced to paddle after suffering a boat breakdown. At Kho Andeth, the teams face a Detour choice involving either gathering objects or hauling fish. The teams then travel to Angkor Wat, the largest religious structure in the world, to complete the roadblock. The teams race for the leg's Pit Stop, the Bayon Temple.
S13 E06Nov 3, 2008
Please Hold Me While I Singe My Skull Nov 3, 2008 The six remaining teams take off from their Pit Stop at the Bayon Temple in Siem Reap Cambodia and receive a clue instructing them to fly 2,000 miles to Delhi, India and then find a place called Moonlight Motors. All teams secure the same flight, but difficulties arise for some teams throughout the leg as they try to navigate the complicated streets of India. At Moonlight Motors, the racers face a Roadblock that requires one member of each team to spray-paint a car. During this task, one racer's badgering of their partner causes them to fall dangerously behind. The teams then head to the Ambassador Hotel, where a doorman gives them a clue that leads them to a Detour. One team's ineptitude at their chosen task task causes them to lose valuable time, but another team loses even more due to continued navigational problems. In the end, this team checks in last at the Pit Stop, but is delighted to find that they are not eliminated (though the reprieve comes with a string attached.)

Upon completing this trial, the teams receive a clue instructing them to travel into Old Delhi and find the Charity Birds Hospital and search through cages of injured birds for their next clue. At the hospital, most teams proceed forward with the leg's Detour, but one finds itself faced with a Speed Bump for having come in last in the previous leg. As this team struggles to make up time, the remaining teams struggle to varying degrees with the Detour tasks, one involving a confusing search for numbers and one involving the creation of hot chili powder. In the end, the final outcome is determined by one team's poor performance at finding the numbers. This team, which had previously been gaining momentum, is eliminated from the race
