We're Going to Trade You for Food Now is the sixth episode of The Amazing Race: All-Stars.


A high seas adventure turns into a nightmare for one racer, and one team hits a breaking point when they are pulled from a plane they have already boarded.

As the Racers head to Tanzania, one Team takes a huge risk and puts it all on the line in an attempt to get ahead of the pack.[2]

Choice A: Solve It
Teams must make their way one third of a mile to the Beyt al Chai hotel where they would put together a 62-piece puzzle that recreates an image from a style of local artwork known as tinga tinga. Once the puzzle was completely solved, they would receive their next clue.

Choice B: Schlep It
Teams must make their way one mile to the Kijangwani Lumber Yard. Once there, they have to choose a local handcart and load two 50 lb logs into their cart. Once loaded, teams have to travel more than a mile to deliver the logs to a dhow shipyard until a manager would receive their next clue.

Only Dustin & Kandice chose this task.

  • This episode's title is said jokingly by Oswald to Charla & Mirna while on the dhow.
  • The past-season highlight selected by Thermacare for its "The Amazing Race All-Stars Moment of Relief" during this episode was Joyce shaving her head (with Uchenna's encouraging words) in Leg 8 of The Amazing Race 7 to win the Fast Forward and come in first at the Pit Stop. They ultimately won the season.
  • This episode was delayed 38 minutes on the East and Mountain time-zones due to overruns by NCAA March Madness.
