The race began with Phil welcoming the eleven teams, explaining the basic rules of the race, introducing the two Express Passes, and shouting "Go!" In the parking lot, teams would find vehicles in the parking lot that they could use to travel to the Los Angeles airport. Firstly, however, they would use the Ford Sync system to make a phone call to a man named Javier located in their first destination city. He would tell them where they were headed to.

Roadblock.png Roadblock: Teams had to find Javier, the man they had phoned from California, who would provide them with a Roadblock clue. Who wants to follow the leader? The chosen team member would have to get back into their vehicle and follow their partner, who would be paragliding off of the cliff and over the city of Iquique. Once the chosen team member managed to find the landing site, they would reunite with their partner and get their next clue.

  • Distance: 1.52 miles

Roadblock.png Roadblock: When teams arrived at this harbor, they found a second Roadblock. Whoever did not perform the first Roadblock would have to perform this one. Who's got their oars in the water? The chosen team member had to get into a rowboat and row themselves around the harbor, searching for one of three boats by their names only. Teams had to retrieve five fish from the boats and return them to shore. However, each of the boats only had a limited number of fish, and so if they ran out, teams would have to keep looking. Once they returned five fish to the fishmonger, they would get their next clue.
