Season Chronology
Season 20 ◄ Chronology ► Season 22

The Amazing Race 21 is the twenty-first installment of the American reality television show The Amazing Race on CBS. It features eleven teams of two, each with a pre-existing relationship, in a race around the world.

It premiered on September 30, 2012, at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS and CTV with the two-hour season finale on December 9, 2012.[1] While the prize for winning the Race remains at US$1 million, if the team that came in first in the first leg had won the race, the prize would have been doubled to US$2 million.[2][3][4]

The Fabulous Beekman Boys stars and husbands Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge were the winners of The Amazing Race 21.[5]

Production[edit]

Development and filming[edit]

The starting line for The Amazing Race 21 was at the top of the Colorado Street Bridge in Pasadena, California

Season 21 was broadcast during the 2012 fall season on CBS.[6] It spanned a little over 25,000 miles (40,000 km) of travel to three continents and nine countries including China, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Turkey,[7] and the Netherlands, which hosted a Switchback task.[8][9]

This season introduced the "Double Your Money" prize for the team who won the first leg, making them eligible win a total of $2 million if they also won the season; only six teams in the previous twenty seasons of the race have ever won both the first and final legs. Elise Doganieri, co-executive producer for the show, called the larger potential prize "a real game-changer". While teams reacted with excitement at the larger prize, Doganieri hoped that if it was won, the additional prize money would be used for "something wonderful" such as supporting charitable medical research.[10] Abbie Ginsberg and Ryan Danz, winners of the Double Your Money prize for its inaugural season, were eliminated from the competition at the conclusion of the Race's ninth leg, after being U-Turned by Jaymes and James.

In Leg 3, Caitlin and Brittany were seen taken in the wrong direction of the Pit Stop, but in a post-elimination interview they stated that they actually knew where the Pit Stop was and were coming back to the Pit Stop after "backtracking" to retrieve a missing clue.[11] During that leg, the race featured the series' first-ever Blind Double U-Turn, where two teams could U-Turn another team, and whichever team used the U-Turn could remain anonymous. It was a combination of components of the U-Turn of previous seasons: Double U-Turn combining with Blind U-Turn.

Although contestants are typically forbidden contact with known family and friends during the filming (except where such contact is part of a task), James LoMenzo was shown video chatting with his wife during the fourth Pit Stop to receive an update on his father's medical condition.

Cast[edit]

Applications for The Amazing Race 21 were open until May 9, 2012.[12]

The cast includes The Fabulous Beekman Boys stars Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge, former White Lion and Megadeth metal bassist James LoMenzo, Chippendales performers Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis, double amputee professional snowboarder Amy Purdy, and former The Apprentice: Martha Stewart contestant Ryan Danz.[8][13] Rob Scheer is also the brother of former Survivor contestant, Tina Scheer.[citation needed]

Natalie & Nadiya were later selected for The Amazing Race: All-Stars, made up of returning teams from seasons 14–23. They later competed on the 29th season of Survivor, making them the first Race contestants to cross-over to another CBS reality show.

  2. ^ Gary & Will Blind U-Turned Rob & Kelley, who had already passed the U-Turn point and were therefore unaffected by it.
  3. ^ In an unaired scene, Caitlin & Brittany initially arrived 6th, but had missed the clue at the U-Turn, having been taken to the Pit Stop by mistake.

Leg 1 (United States → China)[edit]

The first Pit Stop of The Amazing Race 21 was at The Bund Signal Tower in Shanghai.

Airdate: September 30, 2012[16]

At the starting line of The Amazing Race 21 took place Colorado Street Bridge in Pasadena, host Phil Keoghan informed the teams that the winners of the first leg would be awarded the new Double Your Money prize, giving them a chance if the team would win the first leg and the last leg of the Race, they would make double their money. Teams were also informed that their first clue was located on top of their backpacks at the bottom of the bridge. Teams rappelled down the side of the bridge to their backpacks, to get their clue that told them their first destination: Shanghai, China. Teams then drove themselves to Los Angeles International Airport, knowing that only 7 teams would be able to make the first flight to Shanghai, with the remaining 4 teams not arriving until 75 minutes later.

Upon arriving in Shanghai, teams made their way to the Yuanshen Sports Centre Stadium where they encountered their first Roadblock on the leg, and asked "Who's ready to get paddled?". One team member had to score one point in a game of table tennis against a 10-year-old Chinese national junior table tennis champion in order to receive their next clue. For each attempt after their first, the table tennis champion would play with an ordinary household object such as a clipboard, frying pan, or tambourine instead of a paddle. Once successful, they would received their next clue.

The clue where sent teams to the Cui Ping Jui Jia restaurant where they found a second Roadblock, asking "Who wants to go 'tubing'?". The team member who did not play table tennis had were treated to a Chinese delicacy desert known as hasma, which consists of the fatty connective tissue found near the fallopian tubes of a frog, served to them in two hollowed out papaya halves. The racer had to finish both servings of hasma, using only a provided pair of chopsticks and without lifting the papaya off of the table, to receive their next clue. This sent them to the Bund where they had to search the promenade for a woman and young boy with traditional Suanpan abacuses who would give them their final clue, sending them to the Pit Stop at the Bund Signal Tower.

Leg 2 (China → Indonesia)[edit]

In Madura, teams participated in the traditional Indonesian bull race known as karapan sapi; teams participated on motorcycles.

Airdate: October 7, 2012[17]

At the start of the leg, teams were informed of their next destination: Surabaya, Indonesia. Upon arrival, teams made their way to an alun-alun stadium in Bangkalan where they picked up a numbered bullwhip. This reflected their order in a traditional karapan sapi bull race, as the racers rode on motorcycles alongside the bulls. Once complete, they were given their next clue.

The clue instructed teams sending them to the Genteng Kali Bridge in Surabaya to pick up a clue for the Roadblock, asking "Who's ready to party?". After heading to Taman Ekspresi, one team member had to select four children and operate a pedal-powered ride (known to locals as an odong-odong) while making eight different pieces of balloon art for the children (four hats and four animals). Once complete, they would receive their next clue.

The clue where received teams were sent to the Wijaya motor shop to pick up their next clue, which was for the Detour: Ice-by-the-Pound or Fish-by-the-Barrel. In Ice-by-the-Pound, teams loaded ten 65-pound (29 kg) blocks of ice from an industrial machine at Tirta Maya Ice Factory onto a waiting truck, rode the truck to a local market, then transported the ice by cart to an unloading zone at the Pabean Market to get their next clue. In Fish-by-the-Barrel, teams carried two barrels full of fish to a vacant fishmonger's stall inside the Pabean Fish Market. They then had to set up the stall in the same manner as an example stall, including breaking a block of ice into chips to keep the fish cold. Once the stall's layout was approved, teams got their next clue. These clues sent teams to the Pabean Market for the Pit Stop.

Leg 3 (Indonesia)[edit]

For one of the Detour choices in Pasuruan, teams participated in a local Reog Ponorogo, parading through the streets while wearing giant traditional masks.

Airdate: October 14, 2012[18]

The leg began where teams were sent to the Antika Jaya padang restaurant for the Roadblock, asking "Who wants to serve a balanced meal?". One team member had to carry twenty dishes of food in their hands and serve them to waiting diners; if they dropped any of the dishes, they had to start over. Once successful, teams were given their next clue.

The clue teams received that told to take the train from Surabaya to Bangil, where they were only allowed to use the cycle rickshaw taxis, known locally as becak (Indonesian), for transportation. Inside the train, teams had to watch for their next clue, eventually finding it carried by a food vendor, and discovering it was the Detour: Lion's Head or Egg Head. In Lion's Head, teams participated in a reog dance by following dance instructions along a procession route while wearing a 40-pound (18 kg) lion's head mask over their heads and shoulders. Teams received their next clue after successfully completing the procession. In Egg Head, teams had to purchase four eggs from a local market, then participate in a custom called debus (Indonesian), a show of strength where one of the many variations involves frying an egg on one's own head. Local magicians lit a coconut half on fire atop each team member's head and used the fire to fry up the eggs the teams had bought to the task. Racers then had to eat the cooked eggs with a serving of hot sauce before they would receive their next clue.

This sent teams to the Perliman Pos I guardhouse where they found the Blind Double U-Turn stand, Rob & Kelley chose to U-Turn Gary & Will, while Gary & Will chose to U-Turn Rob & Kelley, unaware that Rob & Kelley already passed the U-Turn. The next clue after the U-Turn sending them to the greenhouse of the SMA Negeri 1 Bangil High School for the Pit Stop.

Leg 4 (Indonesia → Bangladesh)[edit]

In Dhaka, teams traveled across the Buriganga River for various tasks, including reaching this leg's Pit Stop.

Airdate: October 21, 2012[19]

At the start of the leg, teams were informed they were next headed to Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Upon arrival, teams had to head to the Rubel Model Auto Mobiles garage where they encountered the Roadblock, asking "Who wants to fill in the gaps?". One team member had to repair one of the public transit buses used in Dhaka. First, teams had to use body putty to fill in the damage, then sand it ready for painting. Once approved by a supervisor, both team members then had to carry three pairs of seats and deliver them to the refurbishing area to receive the next clue.

The Roadblock clue sending teams to Kawran Bazaar Shootkir Market. Teams had to search baskets of dried fish to find one marked with race colors to receive their next clue, where they could take the Fast Forward. The Fast Forward required teams to become rat catching assistants to a pest control agent. Both team members had to fill a bag with dead rats – collecting them from three different locations – to complete the task.

Other teams had to take the Detour: a choice between Pound the Metal and Pound the Cotton. In Pound the Metal, teams worked with a local blacksmith to hammer and beat an iron rod into a sharp spiked tool using 10-pound sledgehammers. They had to hand-pump the bellows of the smokey, charcoal fire so they could strike while the iron was hot, and get the blacksmith's approval to get their next clue. In Pound the Cotton, teams made a cotton mattress via a traditional Bengali method. Teams had to use bamboo rods to beat clumps of cotton into a fine, feather-like consistency. Then they had to stuff the mattress, and sew it together. Once the craftsman was satisfied with their work, he would hand them their next clue. The clues had teams travel by boat to Swarighat, and then go on foot to the Pit Stop at the Shyambazar Chan Mia ghat.

Leg 5 (Bangladesh)[edit]

The Detour in Bangladesh made teams choose between two major parts of Bangladeshi industry: jute (top) and bamboo (bottom).

Airdate: October 28, 2012[20]

  • Dhaka (Jatrabari Boro Bazaar)
  • Demra (Ferry Ghat Road) Roadblock: "It ain't heavy, it's a Roadblock"
  • Detour: Straw Dogs or Bamboo Jungle Demra (Latif Bawani Jute Mills or Tarabo Bazaar)
  • Sonargaon (Lok Shilpa Jadughar) Pit Stop: Leg 5

At the start of the leg, teams were sent to the Jatrabari Boro bazaar where they were told to find the "bēguna" vendor for their next clue. They were left on their own to figure out that "bēguna" is the Bengali language word for "eggplant". Once they found the vendor, he would receive the next clue.

The clue received that were sent them to Demra's Ferry Ghat Road where they picked up the clue for the Roadblock, describing "It ain't heavy, it's a Roadblock". One team member had to construct a balance scale from the provided bamboo, lashing ropes, and other equipment. Once the construction of the scale was approved, they then had to weigh out the proper amount of wood to balance with 4 large stones. Once the weights of stones and logs were even, they would receive their next clue.

The clue eventually found out was a Bangladeshi labor-inspired Detour: Straw Dogs or Bamboo Jungle. In Straw Dogs, teams first had to prepare twenty bundles of jute straw by heckling – throwing them against a nailed board, the heckling comb – to straighten and separate the fibers. They then had to deliver twenty bundles of the completed straw to the looms, and at the end of the production line they would receive their next clue in the form of a jute mat with a painting on it. In Bamboo Jungle, teams had to collect three sets of bamboo trunks of different length and diameter from a storage area. They then used a platformed freight bicycle to transport the bamboo to a construction site. Once their delivery was confirmed by the site's foreman, they would get the next clue, a small length of bamboo with a painting on it. The paintings given to each team depicted the Pit Stop, Lok Shilpa Jadugahr in Sonargaon.

Leg 6 (Bangladesh → Turkey)[edit]

In Istanbul's Grand Bazaar, teams faced a Roadblock where they had to sell Turkish sherbet in the busy marketplace.

Airdate: November 4, 2012[21]

At the start of the leg, teams were told to next fly to Istanbul, Turkey. Upon arrival, they were told to head to Kabataş in Beyoğlu. Once there, they must pick up a clue and take to Üsküdar, in the Asian side of Istanbul, to pick up a clue at the ferry terminal.

The clue received telling them to head back across to the European side to the Spice Bazaar. Upon arriving at the Spice Bazaar's stall number 14, they picked up their next clue. However, for Josh and Brent, they must encounter the Speed Bump and each had to ask for and eat one cone of Maraş ice cream from a nearby marked stall, which included a teasing performance common with the dessert by the vendor. Once they tasted the ice cream from the right vendor, they were allowed to continue onto the Detour with the other racers. The Detour was a choice between Simit or Scrub It. In Simit, teams had to deliver three orders of the traditional Turkish bagel known as a simit to three different vendors, stacked carefully on a delivery board that one team member had to wear on his or her head; if any simit dropped, they would have to restart that delivery. Once they had proof of delivery from the three vendors, the baker would give them their next clue. In Scrub It, teams partook in a traditional Turkish bath, receiving their next clue from the bath attendants when the bath was complete.

The clues sent teams to the Grand Bazaar where they picked up the clue for the Roadblock, asking "Who's ready to pour their heart out?". One team member dressed in vendor garb and had to serve 40 glasses of Turkish sherbet to passersby in the bazaar, selling each for Turkish lira symbol 8x10px.png1 from a long-spouted brass teapot called an ibrik to earn Turkish lira symbol 8x10px.png40 (approx. US$20). Once they returned with the money to the attendant, they would receive their next clue, allowing them to head to the MV Savarona for the Pit Stop.

Leg 7 (Turkey → Russia)[edit]

The first Roadblock in Moscow had teams opening padlocks on the Luzhkov Bridge's famous Trees of Love.

Airdate: November 11, 2012[22]

At the start of the leg, teams were told they were next headed to Moscow, Russia. Upon arrival in Moscow, teams were told to head to the Zurab Tsereteli sculpture park for their next clue. The clue told them that they had to obtain their next clue from Ivan the Terrible's two guards at the Moskvoretsky Bridge bridge, neighboring the Kremlin. Teams then made their way to the bridge where they picked up the clue.

The clue turned out was for the Detour: Alphabetized or Synchronized. In Alphabetized, teams went to the Russian State Library and were given a list of books by author, title, and year. They had to use the paper card catalog system, in Russian, to locate four of the books on the list. Once they thought they had the correct location in the stacks, a librarian would direct them to the proper room to allow the team to get the books. Teams then checked their retrieved books with the head librarian to get their next clue. In Synchronized, teams participated in a synchronized swimming routine with six other swimmers of the Russian national developmental team. After practicing the routine, they performed it for a judge – who would either pass them and give them their next clue, or would require the teams to practice more. In both detours, there was a time limit depending on the operating hours of each facility; if they were unable to complete either task before the facilities closed, they would incur a 4 hour penalty (with the Synchronize detour operating longer than the Alphabetize Detour).

The clue sent teams to the Luzhkov Bridge where they encountered the Roadblock, and asked "Who's ready to unlock the future?". One team member had to select one of the marked Trees of Love—trees covered in padlocks—and unlock 10 of the locks with the provided set of keys to free a banner held to the tree. Once they freed the banner and unfolded it, they would find the next clue concealed inside: a 100 ruble banknote. Teams were left on their own to figure out that they were supposed to head to the location on the reverse of the note: the Bolshoi Theatre, which served as the Pit Stop.

Leg 8 (Russia)[edit]

For the Roadblock, teams had to take a quiz on the nine different time zones spanning Russia.

Airdate: November 18, 2012[23]

At the start of the leg, teams were told to head to the Timiryazev Agricultural Academy's study building #6 where they encountered the Roadblock and the Speed Bump. For their Speed Bump, James & Abba had to help a Russian Orthodox priest to get to his church via limousine, however this task was not described by Phil on-air.[24] In the leg's Roadblock, teams asked "Who is in the zone?", one team member was shown a brief slideshow, showing a sample time in Moscow, a map of Russia's nine different time zones with their UTC offsets and Moscow's location highlighted. Then they were shown multiple instances of the same time zone map without the UTC offsets but with several other Russian cities highlighted. After the show, they had to fill in the corresponding local time for any five cities within an allotted time period. If they completed in time and were correct, teams would receive their next clue. If they were wrong or ran out of time, they had to watch the presentation and do the quiz again.

The clue they were given at the Roadblock was for the Detour: Movers or Shakers. In Movers, teams had to dress up as Russian soldiers and learn the steps of the Trepak dance. Teams then performed the dance in front of a judge who would give them their next clue if they performed the dance correctly. In Shakers, teams went to a party where several impersonators of Russian historical figures were attending. They had to identify seven specific figures – Catherine the Great, Joseph Stalin, Leon Trotsky, Leonid Brezhnev, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Peter the Great, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Nicholas II of Russia, and Vladimir Lenin – and fill out a form identifying how many impersonators of each person were present. If they identified the correct number of impersonators, they would get their next clue from an Alexander Pushkin impersonator. The clues they received sent them to the Pit Stop at the Verandah Tantsev in Sokolniki Park.

Leg 9 (Russia → The Netherlands)[edit]

The Detour in Amsterdam had teams picking between running a Dutch street organ...
...or re-enacting Rembrandt's masterpiece The Night Watch.

Airdate: November 25, 2012[25]

At the start of the leg, teams were simply given a flag and told that their next destination was the capital city of the national flag they were given. They were left to figure out that they were given the flag of the Netherlands and their next destination was Amsterdam with the U-Turn coming up.

Upon arriving in Amsterdam, teams had to head to the Amsterdam Centraal railway station where they could take the Fast Forward. For the Fast Forward, the team had to travel to the Van Gogh Café and board a marked amphibious bus called The Floating Dutchman. Once the bus entered the water, teams learned that each team member had to eat five soused herring before the bus returned to land, a trip that took seven minutes. If they ran out of time, the bus would return to the Van Gogh Café and the team would have to wait 10 minutes for the next trip.

Other teams have to take a boat onto the Amstel river where they were to seek out a pofertjesboot, a floating poffertjes stand, near the Magere Brug to receive their next clue, informing them of the Detour: a choice between Back in Time and Organ to Grind. In Back in Time, teams had to re-create the Rembrandt painting The Night Watch with a group of costumed actors and props, including themselves. If the Rembrandt impersonator was satisfied with the re-creation, he would award the teams their next clue. In Organ to Grind, after finding one of three Dutch street organs, one team member had to run the machine while the other asked for tips. Once they earned 30, the organ grinder would give them their next clue. The clues sent teams to the Museum Geelvinck, where they found the U-Turn stand, Jaymes & James had to perpetrate Abbie & Ryan for the U-Turn, while Trey & Lexi had to choose U-Turn Jaymes & James, unaware that Jaymes & James were already passed the U-Turn, and their next clue.

The clue sent them to the rural village field in Ransdorp by bus where they encountered the Roadblock, which was also a Switchback, and teams asked "Who's ready to jump back in time and make a last ditch effort?". Just as in Season 12's Amsterdam Roadblock, one team member participated in the sport of fierljeppen, pole vaulting across a ditch full of water. They had to vault across the ditch, retrieve their clue in the form of wooden clogs on the other side, and then vault back across. If they fell into the water, they would have to start over from the last side of the ditch they were on. The clue sent teams to the house of Rembrandt's mistress in Ransdorp for the Pit Stop.

Leg 10 (The Netherlands → Spain)[edit]

The tennis-based Roadblock in Mallorca paid homage to world number 1 tennis player (at the time of filming) and Mallorca native Rafael Nadal.

Airdate: December 2, 2012[26]

At the start of the leg, teams were told to fly to Barcelona, Spain, and then take the ferry over to Palma on the island of Mallorca. Upon arriving in Palma, teams had to head to the Palma Cathedral and search amongst a small troupe of actors dressed up as devils and demons participating in a performance for La Nit del Foc, a traditional Mallorcan festival, for one who was holding their next clue.

This clue directed them to the Centro de Alto Rendimiento in Manacor for the Roadblock, asked teams "Who wants to get smashed?". In honor of Mallorcan tennis player Rafael Nadal, one team member had to return 20 tennis balls fired by an automatic server within the bounds of a clay court in order to receive their next clue. If the machine ran out of tennis balls, they would have to start the task over, their prior count reset.

The clue they received sent them to the Coves de Campanet where they were instructed to follow the music of two guitarists in the caves to find their next clue, the Detour: Spin It or Bull It. In Spin It, teams donned safety gear and then replaced two blades on a 400-year-old Mallorcan windmill. Once a mechanic checked their work, they received their next clue from a pair of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza impersonators. In Bull It, the team would wear a special two-person bull outfit, with the person in front unable to see where they were going. The team member in back would verbally guide their partner in the front to circle eight matadors and then strike a target of a ninth to launch a final dummy matador. The entire course had to be completed within two minutes for the team to get their next clue. The clues teams received sent them to Bellver Castle for the Pit Stop.

Leg 11 (Spain → France)[edit]

Château de Chenonceau in the Loire Valley was the 11th Pit Stop of The Amazing Race 21.

Airdate: December 9, 2012[27]

At the start of the leg, teams were told to head back to Barcelona and then take the train to Saint-Pierre-des-Corps, France, in part of the Loire Valley. Upon arrival at the train station, teams had to load 8 empty baskets from the nearby Brasserie de la Tour restaurant into their Ford Escapes, which they would use on the leg, using its hands-free liftgate opening/closing feature before heading off to the Château de Villandry where Natalie and Nadiya encountered the Speed Bump. They had to make their way to the château's Chambre du Prince and properly lace and tie up a lady's corset before they could continue on with the Race. Teams had to search the Château's gardens for a stone dog statue that had their next clue, telling them to find Leonardo da Vinci's final resting place. This left teams on their own to figure out that it referred to the Chapel of Saint-Hubert at the Château d'Amboise where they searched their next clue.

The clue where teams found out was for the Detour at Château de Cheverny: Chow or Plow. In Chow, teams prepared a meal of meat and other food for a large number of hunting dogs. They had to remove debris and bones from the meat, cut the meat into appropriate sizes, weigh out a designated amount of food, and then lay it out appropriately, before the judge would release the hounds and give them their next clue. In Plow, teams used a plow attached to a work horse to mill four lines in a designated field to the farmer's satisfaction in order to get their next clue. Each Detour selection only had two workstations, which were first come-first serve.

The clue teams received sent them to la Cave des Roches in Bourré where they encountered the Roadblock, asking "Who's a 'fun-guy'?". One team member had to find a store display containing three different types of mushrooms (grey oysters, wood blewits, and shiitake). Using one of the baskets they picked up at the train station, they then had to enter an underground mushroom farm, find the same three types of mushrooms, and collect 10 of each variety. If they found the correct three mushroom types, the shopkeeper would give them their next clue telling them to go to the "Castle of the Ladies". Teams were left on their own that this meant the Château de Chenonceau, the Pit Stop for this leg.

Leg 12 (France → United States)[edit]

The final Roadblock of the Race took place inside the gates of United Nations Headquarters in New York City and had teams associating national flags with the different "hellos" and "goodbyes" they heard during the race.

Airdate: December 9, 2012[27]

At the start of the leg, teams were given a post card depicting their final destination city: New York City. The post card, in particular, depicted a certain view at Coney Island. Upon arriving at Coney Island, teams were left on their own to figure out that they had to find the exact location shown in the photo, and that their next clue was printed out on advertisements nearby.

The clue were found out where teams sent them to the Brooklyn Navy Yard for the first Roadblock, asking "Who's up for an amazing escape?". One team member was put into a straitjacket and bungee harness, and be hoisted upside down from a tower. They then had to escape the bonds of the straitjacket—a feat made famous by Harry Houdini—upon which they would be dropped from the tower in a surprise bungee drop. After being lowered to the ground, the team would be given its next clue.

The clue received instructing them to go to the first pizzeria in New York, leaving them to figure out it was Lombardi's Pizza in Manhattan. At Lombardi's, teams were told they had to deliver ten pizzas with various toppings to three different addresses in Little Italy, without being allowed to take any notes. Once they had successfully delivered all three orders, they were given a blue badge emblazoned with a logo as their next clue.

The badge where it received leaving them to figure out it was the logo for the United Nations and their next destination was at the UN Headquarters, where they had the second Roadblock, asking "Who has a way with words?". The team member who sat out on the bungee jump Roadblock was presented with banners with words in foreign languages printed on them, and the flags of the eight foreign countries visited during the Race. The team member was required to attach the words for "hello" and "goodbye"—as said to them by the Pit Stop greeter in each country—and raise them up the flagpole flying that country's flag. The correct answers were:

  • China China: "Nǐ Hǎo" & "Zài Jiàn"
  • Indonesia Indonesia: "Hai" & "Selamat Tinggal"
  • Bangladesh Bangladesh: "Shagotom" & "Aabar Dekha Hobe"
  • Turkey Turkey: "Merhaba" & "Hoşça Kal"
  • Russia Russia: "Zdrávstvujtye" & "Do Svidániya"
  • Netherlands The Netherlands: "Hallo" & "Tot Ziens"
  • Spain Spain: "Hola" & "Adios"
  • France France: "Bonjour" & "Au Revoir"

Once all flag sets were correct, they could then hoist the flag of the United Nations United Nations, which would also lower their final clue, directing them to the Finish Line at Gotham Hall.
