Teams must travel by taxi to the Spanish Synagogue. Once there, teams must search the grounds for their next clue.

At the Spanish Synagogue, Brian & Ericka would receive their clue for their Speed Bump.

Brian & Ericka must travel to M1 Lounge, where they will have to successfully prepare a traditional shot of absinthe. They must take the shot of absinthe before they are allowed to continue.

Teams must travel by taxi to the Ekotechnické Museum to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to enter the museum and search among several hundred ringing telephones for the five that have a person on the other end of the line. A voice from each phone would give the team member one letter to the word "FRANZ", a reference to Franz Kafka. After obtaining all five letters, the team member has to fill out a form with several biographical questions and attempt to unscramble the five letters to form his name. If they are correct, the inspector would hand them their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Big Easy decided to quit the Roadblock, unable to guess the phrase, and take the four hour penalty.

Teams must travel by taxi to the Kryocentrum, where teams will find their next clue.

Teams must strip down to their underwear and spend two minutes in a cryotherapy chamber. After the two minutes are up, they'll receive their next clue.

Teams must travel by taxi to Charles Bridge, where they will find their next clue.

Choice A: Legend
Teams would have to build a golem by placing wet clay around a hay frame, and then transport it to the Old New Synagogue. If the golem is to the rabbis' satisfaction, he will hand them their next clue.

Meghan & Cheyne and Sam & Dan chose this task.

Choice B: Lager
Teams would have to carry a total of 30 glasses of beer from a brewery called Pivovar a Restaurace "U Fleků" through the busy town square and deliver them to a bar named Restaurace Kozička to receive their next clue.

Only Brian & Ericka chose this task.

By the time Flight Time & Big Easy finished serving their penalty at the Roadblock, they fell too far behind the other teams and were directed after going to the Kryocentrum to go straight to the pit stop.

Teams must travel by taxi to Střelecký Island to check in.

For coming in first place, Meghan & Cheyne won a pair of 52 inch HD LCD TVs.
