Episode Guide

    The final three teams race home from Prague to Las Vegas, where a stop at the Graceland Wedding Chapel points the racers to a Roadblock doing a face-first rappel down the side of Mandalay Bay. A later task performing like Cirque du Soleil members at the Mirage sees one racer suffer a complete meltdown, while knowing "the most famous casino in Monaco" should be directing them to the Monte Carlo (and a task counting one million dollars in chips) proves difficult for another team. A final stop at the MGM Grand has Wayne Newtown, who suffers the indignity of one team blanking on his name, directing the racers to the finish line—it's at his house.moreless
  • The four remaining teams depart the Pit Stop at Prague Castle to learn Brian and Ericka's Speed Bump—making and drinking absinthe at the pub, M1—comes straight away. A literally Kafkaesque Roadblock at the Ekotechnicke Museum leaves ringing in some's ears, while a trip to the -180°C Kryocentrum leaves everyone chilled to the bone. The Legend and Lager Detour choices see some construct a Golem, while others deliver beers to soccer holligans, before heading to the Pit Stop on Strelecky Ostrov next to the Charles Bridge.moreless
  • The four remaining teams depart the Pit Stop in the bogs outside Tallinn, Estonia and head for Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, where their initial task has them search Staromestske namesti for a "vintage Praga"—if they can only figure out what that is. Later, a Detour at Kayaky Troja forces teams to choose between shooting down man-made rapids (Fast & Furious) or shooting across a wire above (Slow & Steady), while a Roadblock at the Stavovské divadlo has people searching for a tiny mandolin.moreless

    The teams depart the Bögs Gård Farm Pit Stop in Sweden and ferry across the Baltic Sea to Estonia's capital, Tallinn. Gary and Matt's Speed Bump awaits them outside the Roadblock at Mustpeade, the house of the Brotherhood of Blackheads, where a team member receives a seemingly blank scroll with their next clue. Later, teams prepare for a volleyball Detour task, not knowing it will be in a knee-deep bog, while others slingshot vegetables, followed by a footrace to the Pit Stop.moreless
  • The five remaining teams depart the pitstop in Zoutkamp Harbor, The Netherlands for Stockholm, Sweden. Once there, a free-fall at Tivoli Gröna Lund points the teams to a Detour that places them in an explosive situation. Later, Bögs Gård Farm hosts the first ever Switchback Roadblock, where the teams revisit the Race's most notorious task from the past.moreless
  • 11/1/09
    The six remaining teams depart the Dolphin Bay Beach pit stop in Dubai for the Netherlands. A carillon bell counting Roadblock at Groningen's tallest building, Martinitoren, leaves one racer in a head-scratching dilemma, while the unrelenting winds and physical demands at the Detour tasks in Vierhuizen de Marne test the mettle of several teams.moreless
  • The seven remaining teams depart the Souk Madinat Jumeirah pitstop, staying in Dubai. The Roadblock involving retrieving a watch to use to unlock a briefcase and Detours of weighing a half-millon dollars in gold or assembling a dozen hookahs are made even worse by stifling 130° heat. But Mika faces the ultimate test of courage when a six-story waterslide clashes with her dual fears of water and heights.moreless

    The nine remaining teams depart Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam's Reunification Palace for Phnom Penh, Cambodia on the fourth leg of a race around the world for one million dollars.

  • The ten remaining teams depart Cai Be, Vietnam, on the third leg of a race around the world for one million dollars. Returning to Ho Chi Minh City, the teams find dealing with the frustrating gridlock of the city's streets to be as taxing as the Race tasks themselves.
  • The teams depart from Los Angeles on a race around the world for one million dollars, competing in two legs: Tokyo, Japan and Ho Chi Minh City and Cai Be, Vietnam.
