Teams must choose a locked briefcase to take with them until further instructions. Once they have it, teams must travel by taxi to the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club and search the boardwalk for their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to row an inflatable dinghy out to a yacht anchored offshore and meet a sheikh on board who will give the team member a watch. After rowing back to the dock, they would have to open the locked briefcase they've brought, and must figure out that the time displayed on the watch corresponds with the combination to the briefcase's lock. When they've opened it, they would receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel by taxi to Old Souk Abra Station to find their next clue

Choice A: Gold
Teams would have to find Dubai Gold Souk in New Gold Centre in Deira where they would use a precision scale to weigh out US$500,000 worth of gold to the nearest ounce. The price of gold per ounce is displayed on a television monitor and changes by the minute. Once the correct amount is on the scale, they would receive their next clue.

Flight Time & Big Easy, Maria & Tiffany, and Sam & Dan chose this task.

Choice B: Glass
Teams would have to Dubai Spice Souk in Deira where they have to open a crate and assemble twelve hookahs, using all parts from the crate and using three displayed hookahs as guides, to receive their next clue.

Brian & Ericka, Gary & Matt, Meghan & Cheyne, and Mika & Canaan chose this task.

Teams must travel by taxi to Atlantis, The Palm and take a slide down the Leap of Faith water slide, which is at a near 90° and goes through a shark tank. At the end of the ride, teams will find their next clue.

Teams must travel on foot to Dolphin Bay Beach to check in.

For coming in first place, Meghan & Cheyne each won a personal watercraft.
