Speed Dating Is the Worst is the seventh episode of The Amazing Race 23.
The order of departure from the Gloriette are as follows:
Teams must fly to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Upon arrival, teams must travel by taxi to Sheikh Zayed Mosque to find their next clue. Female racers must put on a traditional abaya before entering the mosque.
Teams must travel by taxi to the Irani souk to find their next clue.
Choice A: Sort It Out
Teams would have to search through several types of dates to prepare an elaborate display tray. Once it is correct, they will receive their next clue.
Choice B: Sew It Up
Teams would have to put together a traditional fishing net. Once the fishing boat captain is pleased with their work, they will receive their next clue.
Teams must travel by taxi to the Al Bandar Marina and take a yacht to Yas Island. At the Yas Marina, teams will find their next clue.
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to take a 200-foot drop from the top of the Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi Hotel, rappelling down to ground. They then get into a Le Mans Prototype race car and ride along on a lap of the Yas Marina Circuit. While in the car, racers have to look among signs on the track with drivers' names and lap times logged in the inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix for the circuit record of 1:40.279 set by Sebastian Vettel. Once they tell the pit crew chief the correct time and driver, he will give them their next clue. If incorrect, they have to make another lap around the track. Racers must continue to make laps around the track until they get the correct name and time.
