Clearly, I'm More Intelligent than You is the Season Premiere of The Amazing Race 5.
Teams must fly to Montevideo, Uruguay. Upon arriving teams will have to take a bus to Punta del Este and find The Hand in the Sand. There are only two flights for the teams. Flight 1 is American Airlines and can only accommodate 4 teams. Flight 2 is United Flight and can only accommodates 7 teams. The United Flight gets in earlier due to American Airlines's longer layover.
Teams must then take a ferry to Gorriti Island. Once there, teams will find their next clue.
On Gorriti Island teams must search for tickets for ferries leaving in the morning. Teams will either depart on the 8:00, 8:30, or 9:00 ferry. Once they've taken a ticket, they cannot switch for another one. Once back on the Punta del Este dock, they will find their next clue.
Team must make their way to Maldonado and find the José Francisco González Meat Warehouse to look for their next clue.
Teams have to carry a 55 pounds slab of meat, 0.5 miles from the meat warehouse, then deliver it to La Rosada Carniceria where the butcher will give them their next clue.
During the delivery, teams would have the option to Yield a team. None of the teams opted to use the Yield.
Teams must return to Punte del Este and find the Conrad Hotel, where their clue will be found across from the hotel.
Choice A: Zips
Teams have to ascend into a penthouse across the hotel and travel by zip-line 210 feet (64 m) above the ground, then take a second zip line 18 stories down to the hotel pool to receive their next clue.
Choice B: Chips
Teams have to play roulette in the hotel casino with 20 chips and would receive their clue if they won a game. If they lost all of their chips, they would have to do the Zips task.
