Episode Guide

  • Episode 9 | Prague, Czech Republic
    Six teams continue their trek to Prague in the Czech Republic. At Prague Castle, new alliances are formed and old alliances are broken as the Intersection rule forces teams to work together. One team is forced to wait hours for the arrival of trailing team Terri/Henry who were marked for elimination. At the Roadblock, one team member suffered a concussion from a high dive. In the end, one team is eliminated after losing a race to find a taxi to the Pit Stop.moreless
  • Episode 4 | Rotorua, New Zealand
    Eight teams leave Auckland and continued their adventures in New Zealand as they drove to Rotorua. At the Okere Falls Scenic Reserve, teams experienced white water sledging followed by riding on a Agrojet craft through Blue Lake. A Roadblock forced team members to search the hot mud baths of Hell's Gate for their next clue. For the Detour at a Maori village in Te Puia, teams must choose between Flax (weaving a traditional Maori headband) and Sticks (tossing training sticks to the beat of drum music). One team failed to recover after starting the leg nearly six hours behind and was eliminated.moreless
  • Episode 3 | Auckland, New Zealand
    The nine teams continued on to Hong Kong before heading directly to New Zealand where teams faced a Roadblock involving a bungee jump off the Auckland Harbour Bridge. Teams also experienced Rock climbing or a wet and wild task in a tiresome Detour. After a close foot race, one team was unable to catch up and were the last to arrive at the Pit Stop. This lead to their elimination.moreless
  • Episode 2 | Manila, Philippines
    All of the ten remaining teams continued racing in the Philippines where they eventually encountered their first Roadblock. To complete the task, one member had to get down and dirty by leading a carabao around a muddy field through a marked course. Teams then made their way back to Manila where they had to complete an additional task of loading and delivering food. Later, teams faced a Detour in which teams were given the choices of "Heel" or "Wheel". "Heel" required careful matching while "Wheel" is more of a puzzle task of assembling a bicycle. Lastly, teams had to make their way to Paco Park and Cemetery, the Pit Stop for this leg of the race. The clue stated that this was an elimination round so teams tried to gain higher positions as much as they could. Ultimately, a true photo finish resulted in the elimination of one team.moreless
  • Episode 1 | Manila, Philippines
    The second group of Amazing Race contestants set out on a race around the world for one hundred thousand dollars. The ten teams left the Asian Civilisations Museum near the Singapore river where they faced gruelling challenges such as a high physical task in a Detour. Teams then made their way to Manila in the Philippines where teams were required to use GPS systems to guide their Taxi drivers to the next location. Later, at the Plaza Miranda, teams had to eat eight baluts from an egg-seller's store before receiving their next clue from the egg seller. Teams then made their way to the Pit Stop located at Fort Santiago. Two teams raced each other to reach the mat first as another team was too late to catch up and stepped onto the mat last. They were relieved to know that had not been eliminated but were instead given a penalty.moreless
