Episode Summary

EDIT
The four remaining teams take off from the previous Pit Stop in Shanghai and receive a clue telling them to travel by train 800 miles to Xi'an where they must then find the Drum Tower. They then take part in a Detour which involves either choosing the Spray task (traveling 34 miles and then spray-painting a car) or the Scroll task (traveling 31 miles and searching for Chinese characters in bolts of fabric.) All teams choose to spray the cars and then travel 40 miles to the Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses Museum. One team misdirects another but in the end, all travel to a Roadblock at the North Peak where one team member must be very methodical to find a key to a lock. Some team members allow themselves to become extremely frustrated, leading to a surprise for this leg. One team is penalized for not attempting to complete the Roadblock and are eliminated leaving
the final three.

The three teams then continue in the final leg, bound for the finish line. They receive a clue telling them to travel 5,600 Miles to Honolulu, Hawaii and then find the Lookout Peak at the Pua'a Ka'a State Park. Once they arrive, the teams find a Detour --- Outfits (choose mannequins and then find matching outfits) or Outriggers (paddle a canoe along a two-mile course.)
Later, teams face their final Roadblock of the season which requires the chosen team member to skydive from about 12,000 feet.
After that, teams are then instructed to fly to their final destination: Chicago, USA, where it all began. Once there teams face off in the last challenge which requires both members to eat pizza full of bad flavors.
Ultimately, the results of this edition of The Amazing Race came down to missed flight opportunities and an unfortunate passing train which left one lucky team to cross the finish line first.moreless
