Teams had to find Pier J 266, where they had to climb to the top of a gantry crane. There, they would be hitched up to a bungee swing and would both go for a wild ride from the top of the crane back down to the dock. They would then receive their next clue. They would be taken by helicopter to their next destination.

  • Distance: 28.7 miles

Roadblock.png Roadblock: When teams' helicopters landed, they found the final Roadblock of the race. Who's bright enough to float? The chosen team member had to prepare a section of a Rose Bowl parade float. They had to glue chrysanthemums to one section, had to place roses in in special vials and attach them to another section, and then cover a straw rose with natural materials. They would then receive their next clue from 2009 Rose Queen Courtney Lee.

Brook, Thomas, Kat

Teams would then receive a series of riddles; "I am Sancho Panza's master", "I am the place to hear The Symphony in the Glen", "Monroe's Year of the Itch". Teams had to figure out that these referred to "Quixote", "Griffith Park" and "Seven", leading teams to Quixote Studios' Stage 7 located in Griffith Park.
