4 Continents, 24 Cities, 40,000 Miles is the season finale of The Amazing Race 6.

Synopsis

Four teams compete in the last two legs of the race but only three teams will have the chance to race to the finish line and win the ultimate prize.

As the final four teams enter the last two legs of the race, one team finds themselves at the mercy of strangers when they are forced to beg for money. For another team, a tedious and simple task brings one of them to tears and to the brink of quitting. During a very tight race to the finish after four continents, 24 cities and 40,000 miles of travel, the teams realize that every move, every minute and every decision can mean the difference between $1 million and second place.[2]
