Route Markers

The order of departure from Old Fort of Zanzibar are as follows:

  1. Charla & Mirna (4:20 am)
  2. Oswald & Danny (4:28 am)
  3. Uchenna & Joyce (7:55 am)
  4. Dustin & Kandice (8:00 am)
  5. Eric & Danielle (3:15 pm)
  6. Joe & Bill (7:01 pm)

Teams must fly to Warsaw, Poland. Upon arrival, they must make their way to Czapski Palace, known as Frédéric Chopin's childhood home and search the palace to find a Chopin impersonator with a piano to search their next clue.

Due to the flights to Warsaw being limited, teams are provided a flight from Zanzibar to a connecting flight via Nairobi and Amsterdam, with an arrival time at 11:25 am the next day. However, they are under no obligation to use them.

Choice A: Perfect Pitch
Teams must make their way three-quarters of a mile to the Prymas Palace and choose a grand piano. Then, they need to use the provided tools to tune one key of the keyboard. Once the concert pianist plays a piece of Chopin's music and determines that their piano was in tune, he would hand them their next clue.

Dustin & Kandice, Eric & Danielle, Oswald & Danny, and Uchenna & Joyce chose this task.

Choice B: Perfect Angle
Teams must make their way approximately half a mile to the Escada Boutique to pick up a mannequin and carry it another 400 yards to the Panoramik Laboratory. Once there, teams have to use an x-ray machine to locate a clue embedded somewhere inside their mannequin which needs to be positioned at a very specific angle for the image to capture the name of their next destination.

Charla & Mirna and Joe & Bill chose this task.

Teams must make their way to Łazienki Park and find the statue of King Jan III Sobieski to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to row a boat out onto the reflecting pool from the park to the palace. No further details about the task are known, as the task was unaired.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Mirna and Danielle by the end of the race had completed only 5 aired Roadblocks, as both of their partners maxed out at 6, meaning by default had to completed this Roadblock. It is unknown who did the Roadblock for Dustin & Kandice, Joe & Bill, Oswald & Danny, or Uchenna & Joyce.

Teams must search the grounds of the park to find Łazienki Palace to check in.

For coming in first, Dustin & Kandice won a trip to Puerto Rico provided by Travelocity.

For coming in last place, Joe & Bill are "marked for elimination". If they do not arrive first in the next leg, they would be assessed a 30-minute penalty.
