Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 5 | Auckland, New Zealand
AIRED:
The teams begin in Australia and learn that they must fly to Auckland, New Zealand. One team struggles with a penalty on their hands given to them on the previous leg. All teams manage to make the same flight. Once there, the teams must catch a Ferry to Devenport and once there, they must search for a girl on a swing who will hand them their next clue. There, the teams encounter a Detour. Their choices are between playing Rugby and shooting goals at Victoria Park or tying knots at a nearby location on yachts. On the way to the Detour, one team breaks a race rule by catching a ride instead of taking a taxi. After the Detour, the teams learn that they must now go to Sky City and complete a Vertigo Climb that will take them nearly 300m above ground. Upon completing the task, teams discover a Roadblock in which one team member must leap off the tower in a sky jump and fall 192m, while the other captured their descent on a Sony Cybershot. The teams must then make their way to the next Pit Stop at Auckland's War Memorial Museum where another team is eliminated due to breaking a race rule causing them to gain a one hour penalty.moreless
