Santa Monica Pier

The race began with Phil welcoming the eleven teams, explaining the basic rules of the race, and shouting "Go!" Teams raced across the pier to find vehicles that they would use to travel to the airport and begin their journey.

Los Angeles International Airport

  • Los Angeles
  • Distance: 7 miles

The first seven teams to arrive would be on the first flight to Montevideo. The last four teams would be on the last flight.

Carrasco International Airport

  • Montevideo, Uruguay Flag of Uruguay.svg
  • Distance: 6219 miles

Upon arrival at the airport, teams needed to catch a bus to their next destination, which did not depart very often.

Bus Station

  • Punta del Este
  • Distance: 62.3 miles

The Hand in the Sand

  • Punta del Este
  • Distance: 0.12 miles

Teams only had to cross the street a few yards away to find their next clue at the base of this monument that represents the last thing one can see when someone drowns.

Gorriti Island

  • Distance: 2.1 miles

Teams had to make their way to the docks of Punta del Este to catch a boat to Gorriti Island. There, they had to search the entire island for 11 trees that contained one of three departure times attached. Once teams took a departure time, they could not exchange it for another. In the morning, teams would be taken back to the mainland at these times.

José Francisco González Meat Warehouse

  • Maldonado
  • Distance: 4.8 miles

Here, teams would receive a 55lbs slab of meat, which they had to carry on foot through the streets of Maldonado to a butcher house.
YieldIcon.png Yield: While transporting their meat from the warehouse to the butcher house, teams would pass the first Yield of the race.

Not Used

La Rosada Carniceria

  • Maldonado
  • Distance: 0.47 miles

Teams had to exchange their heavy slab of meat to the butcher, who would hand them their next clue. They could then travel by taxi to the next location.

Conrad Hotel

  • Punta del Este
  • Distance: 3.11 miles

Detour.png Detour: Teams found their Detour information on the lawn across the street from the front of the hotel.

Zips: Teams traveled to the roof of the hotel's tower, where they had to cross a tightrope suspended 210ft above the ground from one tower to another. They then had to ride a frightening zipline from the roof down to the hotel's pool, after which they would be handed their next clue.
Alison & Donny, Bob & Joyce, Brandon & Nicole, Colin & Christin, Dennis & Erika, Jim & Marsha, Linda & Karen
Chips: Teams would receive 20 casino chips and had to use them, a maximum five at a time, to play roulette. If the ball landed on a number chosen by the teams, they would receive their next clue. However, if they ran out of chips, they would be forced to instead complete the Zips task.
