Episode Guide

  • In the fourteenth season's finale, the final three teams set off from their Pit Stop at the Bird's Nest Stadium in Beijing, China and travel over 5,000 miles to Maui, Hawaii. There, they travel to beach access 118 where an exhausting task requires them prepare a pig for a luau. Two racers greatly struggle with this task, but all successfully complete it and receive the next clue instructing them to travel to a buoy field where they must search amongst over 100 buoys for a clue. Upon completing this task, they travel to a surfboard fence along the Hana Highway. One racer gains a substantial lead at the leg's Roadblock when the other teams get lost on the way to it, but then becomes frustrated upon not being able to complete the task. Ultimately, the other teams catch up, making it a very close race for the finish. One team arrives first at the King Kamahahema Golf Club, claiming the prize of one-million dollars.moreless

    The remaining four teams learn that the destination that they have reached is not a Pit Stop and they are still racing. They search the area shops of a Bei Hei streets for a Travelocity roaming gnome, which they must keep until the leg's Pit Stop. The gnome features a clue instructing them to travel to Gu Gong Xi Bei Jiao. There they find a set of electric bikes, which they must ride across the forbidden city of Gu Gong and Tiananmen Square to the Dongdan Station. A Detour has teams choose between either getting dressed up for an opera or taking restaurant orders in Mandarin Chinese, but a U-Turn forces one team to complete both tasks. Along the way, two teams find themselves majorly lost, leading to a scramble to find their way. Teams travel to the Dong Hua Men Yi Shi street market, where a Roadblock requires one member of each team to eat Chinese delicacies. The final three is determined at the Pit Stop, Niao Chao ("The Bird's Nest"), but a last-second bathroom break results in one team falling victim to the final elimination.moreless
  • The final four teams set off from their Pit Stop at the park of the Sun and Moon Pagodas in Guilin, China and receive a clue instructing them to fly north, over 1,000 miles, to Beijing. All teams arrive on the same flight and, once there, travel to a foot massage spa located on the Jian Guomen outer street. Though one team vows to put behind them a rivalry begun in the previous leg, the fighting continues. The Roadblock forces one member of each team to endure an intense foot massage and then teams travel to the Guangcai Natatorium. There, they face a detour choice requiring them to either perform a precise synchronized dive or swim a 400-meter relay. Two teams struggle with the diving task and one racer suffers a breakdown to fear of water. Ultimately, only one team reaches the next destination, the Drum Tower at the North Gate, by the end of the episode and they are told that the leg is not over and they are to continue racing.moreless
  • The five remaining teams set off from the eighth Pit Stop at a royal palace in Bangkok, Thailand and receive a clue instructing them to travel over 1,000 miles to Guilin, China. With one team facing a huge penalty, the teams arrive in China on a series of flights and travel by taxi to a hair salon on the street of Qing Xiu Lu. There, they receive a clue instructing them to travel to the #24 bridge. One team faces a Speed Bump before they are able to continue and drama begins when two racers enter into a shoving match, leading one to call another a "bitch." At the #24 bridge, the teams face a Roadblock involving some "fowl play" and one team encounters a great difficulty when the birds they need for their task keep flying away. Next, the teams travel to a 1,000 year old, structure, the Ancient South Gate and participate in a Detour requiring them to either paint calligraphy or complete a dance routine. They then receive a clue instructing them to travel to the Pit Stop, the Bangan Lake nestled between the Sun and Moon Pagodas. Here, the conflict between two racers comes to a head, and one team is eliminated from the race.moreless
  • The remaining five teams take off from their Pit Stop at the Wat Thep Nimit Temple in Phuket, Thailand and receive a clue instructing them to fly over 400 miles to Bangkok, Thailand. All teams catch the same flight and then travel by taxi to a local boatyard and search the grounds for their next clue, which turns out to be a Roadblock. After completing the task, requiring one member of each team to properly attach a propeller to a boat, the teams use the boat to search through the Bangkok Canal for their next destination, the Peninsula Pier. Two teams make a critical mistake by leaving behind important possessions. At the Pier, teams face a Detour choice involving either matching waiting patients with dentures or singing karaoke during a car journey. They then receive a clue instructing them to travel to the Phya Thai Palace, the Pit Stop for this leg of the race. One team makes a recovery after some previous problems, but the mistake involving the items left behind comes back to haunt two teams and one of them is also haunted by a massive penalty, but is not eliminated from the race.moreless

    The six remaining teams set off from the Jaigur Fort in Jaipur, India and receive a clue instructing them to fly nearly 2,000 miles to Phuket, Thailand. All teams arrive on the same flight and, once there, begin their search for a gorilla statue depicted in a picture they all receive. Most teams find the correct location, Phuket Zoo, with little trouble, but one team is misled and wastes valuable time traveling to the wrong location. At the Phuket Zoo, the teams have their pictures taken with a tiger and then take part in a traditional performance that involves having elephants step and squat over them. Upon completing this task, they receive their photo from the tiger keeper, which is also their next clue. This clue directs the teams to the Nguan Choon Tong Herbs Shop in Old Phuket, which features a frustrating task requiring the teams to instruct the shopkeeper to select various drawers from a group of ninety-nine until they find their next clue. Once teams have found this clue, they participate in a Detour requiring them to either prepare a fishing ship for ten days at sea or guide a rickshaw along a two-mile course. Upon completing this task, teams travel to the leg's Pit Stop, the Wat Thep Nmit Temple. Upon arrival, one team sweats out two penalties, one racer collapses due to heat exhaustion and one team arrives just a little too late and is eliminated from the race.moreless

    The seven remaining teams depart from their Pit Stop at the "Siberian Colosseum," leaving the cold of Siberia and flying nearly 2,000 miles to the heat of Jaipur, India. Once there, they take taxis to the sacred tree Peepli Ka Pedh at the outskirts of Pula Village and dial a phone for a message directing them to their next destination, the Amber Fort's Gaura Parvati Parking. Comically, several teams initially miss the phones, intent on finding a cluebox. Once teams arrive at the fort, one member of each team takes part in a Roadblock involving camels. The intensely physical task greatly exhausts one racer, but gives him a chance to shine. After completing this task, teams make their way to a puppet store in the Johari Bazaar and choose between two Detour tasks requiring them to either transport a loaded cycle rickshaw or dance for tips. One team also faces a time-consuming Speed Bump and another team has a moment of panic when they lose track of their taxi driver after completing their chosen Detour task. In the end, one team is unable to catch up from behind and is eliminated in an extremely close finish.moreless
  • Having shaken off the shock of the fourth elimination, the seven remaining teams set off from their Pit Stop at the Theater of Musical Comedy in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, Russia, and receive a clue instructing them to ride the Trans-Siberian Railway approximately 400 miles to the city of Norosibirsk and then take a taxi to the Pundt Tehnicheskogo Osmotra for their next clue. Upon arriving, the teams face a Detour requiring them to choose between either a potentially confusing search or a task involving heavy physical labor. Some proceed through their chosen task with ease, while other teams get lost and fall dangerously behind. Next, teams receive a clue instructing them to travel to Siberia's largest library. There, one member of each team takes part in a Roadblock requiring them to run in their underwear in Siberia's bitter cold. Ultimately, one team is unable to recover from their mistakes, but is granted a reprieve when they are not eliminated upon coming in last.moreless

    The eight remaining teams set off from the Vila Panoramic and receive a clue instructing them to fly through Moscow to Krasnoyarsk, Siberia and then travel to the hydroelectric dam depicted on the back of Russia's ten ruble note. Three teams gain an advantage by catching an early flight, leaving the remaining teams to fight it out to avoid last place. Teams next race to the Church of Saint Innokenty and take part in a Detour with two choices that both have some assembly required. One team is hit with a new variation on an old Amazing Race twist that sends them scrambling. The leg's Roadblock sends teams to the Bobrovy Log Park, where one member of each team takes a bobsled ride. Teams then travel to the leg's Pit Stop, a theater of musical comedy known as Krasnoyarsk theater. Ultimately, one of the season's early frontrunning teams ends up being eliminated.moreless
  • The remaining teams set off from the Pit Stop at the Schloss Hellbrunn in Salzburg, Austria and receive a clue instructing them to travel by train to Munich and then fly 700 miles to Bucharest, Romania. A team that had been in the lead finds its advantage neutralized when their flight is forced to turn around, while another team ends up on a flight so late that it doesn't land in Romania until after the other teams have already completed the leg's Roadblock and boarded a train for the next destination. The Roadblock requires one member of each team to complete a series of gymnastics and the next destination turns out to be Buskov, Transylvania. In Transylvania, the teams travel to the Biserica Neagra (Black Church) and then take part in a Detour task that requires them to either load and unload belongings from a horse-drawn carriage, or unlock and untangle a coffin. One team completing the latter task bleeds valuable time by hiking up a mountain, following the wrong set of arrows, while a team completing the former task has a brief moment of panic when they lose their fanny pack. Upon completing the Detour, the teams travel by taxi to the leg's Pit Stop, the Vila Panoramic, but the team on the late flight is unable to recover, their hopes of one million dollars dashed.moreless

    The remaining teams set off from their Pit Stop in Stechelberg in the Burmese Alps and receive a clue instructing them to fly to Munich, Germany and then drive to Ruhpolding, where they will ride a cable car to the top of the mountain. A scramble for flights results in eight teams boarding the earliest-arriving flight, with two lagging behind. Upon reaching the mountain, racers are faced with a critical decision when adverse weather conditions affect the leg's Roadblock. One racer initially falls behind, only to surge ahead after making a choice that sets him apart from the pack. Another racer gets lost on the mountain. Later, racers drive 25 miles to Schönau am Königsee and locate their next clue near the area of a bobsled track. They face a Detour requiring them to either complete an obstacle course with a Segway or engage in pie-throwing. Upon completing the Detour, the racers then have a Tyrolian woodcutter cut a small piece of wood that is stamped with a clue that turns out to direct them to the Pit Stop. All racers hurry to the Schloss Hellbrunn (Hellbrunn Castle) in Salzburg, Austria, but one team is ultimately unable to recover from an earlier error and is eliminated from the race.moreless

    Eleven new teams take off on a race around the world for one-million dollars in the premiere of the fourteenth season of The Amazing Race. The teams take off from the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base near Long Beach, California. They immediately receive a clue instructing them to fly to either Zurich or Milan and then travel by train to Locarno, Switzerland. Once in Switzerland, the teams travel to the Church of San Antonio. Upon signing a register, they receive a message from a priest with one of three departure times for the next morning: 7:15 A.M., 7:30 A.M. and 7:45 A.M. After camping out that night, the teams travel to the Verzasca Dam (Valle Verzasca) and face a Roadblock requiring "nerves and steel"-- a 70 story bungee jump. After completing this jump, the second-highest in the world, the teams travel by train to the Interlaken and search for Kleine Rugen Wiese. There, they take part in a task requiring them to join the local workforce and transport 200 pounds of cheese from an aging shed to the bottom of a hill. To aid in this task, teams don an an antique cheese rack, but many racers end up simply carrying cheese or sliding slowly down the hill when their cheese racks break. Upon completing this task, the teams receive a clue instructing them to travel to the last postal bus stop in the town of Stechelberg. They then listen for a group of yodelers to lead them to the leg's Pit Stop. In the end, two teams find themselves in an extremely close foot-race, with one falling just slightly behind and being eliminated.moreless
