The order of departure from the Yas Marina Circuit are as follows:
Teams must travel on foot to the pit row garage, and using the coins they retrieved in Norway, decipher a numeric code on the outside of the coins' bag, that will allow them to unlock a Ford Explorer, which they will then drive themselves to the Bou Thib Endurance Village, where they will find dune buggies and their next clue waiting for them.
Teams must drive their dune buggies, following a marked course, in the Al Khatim Desert to find their next clue.
Teams must drive their dune buggies back to their Ford Explorer, and then themselves to the Al Ain Oasis to receive their next clue from a tree climber.
Choice A: Wedding Guests
Teams would have to drive to Al Jahili Fort and prepare machbūs, a traditional Emirati dish for wedding guests. After gathering and cutting up all of the necessary ingredients, they'll put it into a large pot and serve a finished dish to a wedding party who will give them their next clue.
Only Nicky & Kim chose this task.
Choice B: Beauty Contest
Teams would have to drive to Al Jahili Fort and find a camel that met a set of breed guidelines, and then they'll dress it up for an upcoming camel show. If the judges are pleased with their camel selection, they will award the teams their next clue.
Teams must travel on foot to Al Jahili Tower to find their next clue.
At Al Jahili Tower, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available. Nicole & Travis used the first slot of the U-Turn on Leo & Jamal. Tim & Marie used the second slot of the U-Turn on Nicky & Kim.
Since Leo & Jamal completed the Beauty Contest Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Wedding Guests Detour before continuing.
Since Nicky & Kim completed the Wedding Guests Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Beauty Contest Detour before continuing.
Teams must drive themselves to Wadi Adventure to find their next clue.
Nicky & Kim have to swim their way across a generated wave pool, with a wave 6 feet high crashing down upon them once every 90 seconds. When they make it up the ladder on the other side of the pool without being pushed off, before they are allowed to continue.
