Ready to Lose Our Lives is the ninth episode of The Amazing Race 2.
This leg of the race is filled with adventurous challenges as the teams make their way through the spectacular backdrop of New Zealand
Four teams race from the Australian Outback to the South Island of New Zealand where they confront a high-speed jet boat river ride, an unruly flock of sheep and a 450-foot bungee jump, one of the largest in the world.
The order of departure from the Aboriginal Camp are as follows:
Teams must go to Wentworth Station to find a marked car.
The instructions for the Fast Forward were found with their clue in Queenstown.
Teams must instruct their drivers to make their way to the Nevis Highwire Platform gondola. Once across the gondola, they will have to find their next clue.
Choice A: Quick Jump
Teams must tandem bungee jump from a 450 foot into a canyon where they will receive their next clue.
All of the teams chose this task.
Choice B: Long Hike
Teams must hike down the mountain into the canyon to receive their next clue.
None of the teams chose this task.
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock will have to herd three black sheep from a group of 22 into a separate corral. Once all three sheep are in the corral, they may check in to the pit stop.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
First Place • Eliminated • Last placer in Non-Elimination Leg • Saved from elimination by the Salvage Pass or The Save • Season winner • Season 2nd place • Season 3rd place • ► Used the Fast Forward
- This leg marks the first time the country of New Zealand is visited.
