Story

Route Markers

Teams must fly to Bora Bora, French Polynesia. The first flight, Air Tahiti Nui, could carry five teams and is scheduled to arrive one hour ahead of the second flight, Air France. Upon arrival, teams must search the area around Bora Bora Airport to find their next clue.

"Who's ready to take a giant leap towards a million bucks?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must sign up for one of six helicopter flights, each being able to carry up to two teams. They would then perform a tandem skydive with an instructor from a height of 10,000 ft, while their partner made their way to the landing location. Once the team is reunited, they would receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must take a water taxi to Eden Beach in Motu Piti A'au, where they would find their next clue.

"Who likes to play in the sand?"

The team member who sat out of the previous Roadblock must search beneath 400 sandcastles for one with their next clue buried beneath it. If the sandcastle did not have a clue beneath it, they must properly rebuild it before being able to continue searching.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Daniel, Jennifer, and Katie all decided to quit the Roadblock, all exhausted and unable to find their clue, and take the four-hour penalty.

Teams must assemble a va'a outrigger canoe and paddle from Eden Beach to Motu Café to check in.
For coming in first place, Jessica & John won two Express Passes, one of which had to be given to another team before the fourth leg.
