Route Markers

The order of departure from Virgen del Socorro are as follows:

  1. Hayley & Blair
  2. Jelani & Jenny
  3. Laura & Tyler
  4. Mike & Rochelle

Since the previous leg was a no-rest leg, teams immediately departed from the Pit Stop to continue racing.

Teams must fly to Dallas, Texas, United States. Upon arrival, teams must travel by taxi to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, where they will find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to dress in a Dallas Cowboys uniform, then be harnessed and pulled to the very top of the Stadium, where they'll collect a football playbook. Once they're back on the ground, they have to catch a touchdown pass and score a field goal to receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel by taxi to P2 Ranch in Burleson to find their next clue.

This also served as an elimination point, in which the fourth team to arrive would be eliminated.

Mike & Rochelle arrived last and were eliminated.

Teams must dress in western hats, shirts, and boots to work with cowboys to herd at least six Texas longhorn steers into a pen. Once completed, the cowboy will give them their next clue.

Teams must travel by taxi to Reunion Tower back in Dallas to find their next clue.

The team member who sat out of the previous Roadblock would have perform this one. The team member would have to rappel from the top of Reunion Tower, and spot a row of yellow and red flags on the way down. Once they've spotted the flags, both team members can make their way by taxi to the railroad shed near Trinity River to find their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must first drive a monster truck through a series of mud pits where they will encounter the final memory challenge. Teams must work together to unlock a shed and using a combination which corresponded to the leg number of the name of places visited: Buchhandlung (Namibia), Baan Teelanka (Thailand), Munttoren (The Netherlands) and Kanda Myojin (Japan). Once the shed is unlocked, they'll take enlarged prints of the selfies they have taken during the race and attach them to a large world map in chronological order from right to left to receive their next clue.

Teams must drive their monster truck back through the bog course to receive their final clue.

Their final clue directed teams to travel by taxi to Continental Avenue Bridge to cross the Finish Line.
