Teams must take a ferry to the city of Nice. Upon arrival, teams must find the city gardens to find their clue near the bust of Albert I.

Teams must fly to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Upon arrival, teams must sign up for one of two charter flights leaving 30 minutes apart to Lalibela. At the airport in Lalibela, teams will find marked cars with their clue on the windshield.

Teams must navigate their driver to Lewz Village to find their next clue.

Choice A: Raise the Roof
Teams must choose a roof and assist a group of locals to carry the roof two-thirds of a mile (1,100 m) and place it on top of a house. One team member would then place a jug on the roof to receive their next clue.

Adam & Rebecca, Hayden & Aaron, and Kris & Jon completed this task.

Choice B: Mud the Hut
Teams must use a plaster made of dirt, water, and straw to cover an entire wall of a traditional Ethiopian house to receive their next clue.

Freddy & Kendra, Jonathan & Victoria, and Lori & Bolo ccompleted this task.

Teams must deliver two donkeys from a pen to a farmer 3 miles away near St. George's Church. After they delivered the donkeys, they can pass Yield board before claiming their next clue.

At St. George's Church, teams would have the option to Yield a team. Adam & Rebecca used the Yield on Freddy & Kendra.

"Who has an eye for detail?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must enter St. George's Church and receive a pendant from the head priest. They then had to search among hundreds of worshipers standing outside for a person with a matching pendant. When they found a match, the worshiper would hand them their next clue.

Teams must walk on foot to Lalibela Lookout to check in. For coming in first, Hayden & Aaron won a vacation to Mexico, courtesy of American Airlines.
