Choice A: Stacked Up
Teams would have to travel to the Mercado Central de Abasto and stack watermelons into a 10-by-10 pyramid. Once the pyramid is complete, the fruit monger will give them their next clue.
Choice B: Strung Out
Teams would have to traveled to an auditorium at the Universidad Nacional de Asunción where they have to properly string a harp, Paraguay's national instrument. Once the harp is properly strung and ready to be tuned, the harp conductor will give teams their next clue.
Rachel & Dave used their Express Pass to bypass the Strung Out Detour.
Teams must travel by taxi to Plaza de la Democracia to find their next clue.
The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would have to perform a traditional Paraguayan bottle dance, performing a choreographic routine with a glass bottle on their head. If the bottle broke, racers would have to start over with a new bottle. Teams are given a limited number of bottles, and if they broke all of them without being able to complete the task, they will incur a 2-hour penalty at the Pit Stop.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
First Place • Eliminated • Last placer in Non-Elimination Leg • Saved from elimination by the Salvage Pass or The Save • Season winner • Season 2nd place • Season 3rd place • ► Used the Fast Forward • ϵ Used the Express Pass• ⊂ User of the first Double U-Turn slot • ⊃ Recipient of the first Double U-Turn slot • ⋐ User of the second Double U-Turn slot • ⋑ Recipient of the second Double U-Turn slot
