Story

Route Markers

The order of departure from the Shenzhen Library Terrace are as follows:

  1. Tyler & Korey
  2. Dana & Matt
  3. Sheri & Cole

None of the team's departure times are shown.

Teams must fly to Los Angeles, California, United States. Upon arrival, teams must travel by taxi to the Angelus Plaza to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to jump off the rooftop of the Angelus Plaza and attempt to grab their clue as they jump. If they cannot obtain their clue as they jump, they have to rappel back down and go back to the rooftop to try again.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel by helicopter to the Santa Barbara, then travel by taxi to the Stearns Wharf and search among the boats on a dingy for the Theresa Ann, which has a fisherman who'll hand them their next clue.

Teams must travel by taxi up Gibraltar Rock to find their next clue.

Teams must synchronize climb across Rattlesnake Canyon. As one team member transverses horizontally across to retrieve one half of the clue, their partner will transverse vertically down to retrieve the other half. Once they've returned to their starting points, they can piece together their next clue.

Teams must travel by taxi to the Grassini Family Vineyards to find their next clue.

The team member who sat out of the previous Roadblock would have to perform this one. The team member would have to use a set of hashtags to correctly spell out, on wine barrels, the names of cities the teams have visited. Once they have the hashtags correct, teams will receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must cross a lake at the vineyard to cross the Finish Line.
