Are There Instructions on Donkey Handling? is the tenth episode of The Amazing Race 6.


The teams continue from their Pit Stop on the island of Corsica, France to the town of Nice by ferry, where they then receive a clue telling them to get to Addis Ababa in Africa by plane.[2]


Route Markers

The order of departure from La Pietra are as follows:

  1. Adam & Rebecca (12:12 am)
  2. Freddy & Kendra (2:03 am)
  3. Lori & Bolo (2:13 am)
  4. Kris & Jon (2:14 am)
  5. Jonathan & Victoria (2:18 am)
  6. Hayden & Aaron (2:51 am)

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 a flight to Lalibela. At the airport at 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 would choose a roof and join with 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 chose this task.

Choice B: Mud the Hut
Teams would have to use a plaster made of dirt, water, and straw to cover an entire wall of a traditional Ethiopian house.

Freddy & Kendra, Jonathan & Victoria, and Lori & Bolo chose 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 clue.

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

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to enter the 850-year-old church and receive a pendant from the head priest. The team member 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.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

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.
