Teams must take a ferry to Valletta, Malta. Upon arrival, teams must make their way to Bridge Bar, where they would be given a drink order from the bartender consisting of a bottle of liquor and two glasses. Using a particular technique of carrying the tray one-handed with only the tip of their fingers and above their shoulders, they must then carry the order up Saint Ursula street's staircase to the Upper Barrakka Gardens, where a group of the Knights of Malta waited for their order. If either member dropped anything from their tray, they would have to go back down to the Bridge Bar and pick up a broom and dustpan to clean up before the bartender would replace their broken items. Once teams successfully deliver their order to the Knights, making sure to place their trays on either end of a table, they would receive their next clue.

Teams must make their way to the Żurrieq Valley Sea Inlet boathouse, where they would find Maltese cross necklaces marked with departure times, three each at 7:30 am and 7:45 am. In the morning, teams would receive their next clue.

"Who's feeling blue?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must rappel down into the Blue Grotto, and once in the water, swim into the cave to retrieve their next clue before rejoining their partner in a waiting boat.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to Monastery of St. Scholastica and search for Triq Antika, where they would find their next clue.

At Monastery of St. Scholastica, Tim & Te Jay would receive their clue for their Speed Bump. Tim & Te Jay must make their way to Saint Lawrence's Church Oratory and each paint the Maltese cross on a shield to the satisfaction of a knight before they are allowed to continue.

Choice A: Flag
Teams must make their way to Birgu Harbour and found that they must participate in the traditional Maltese game of ġostra, running up a greased log over the harbor to grab flags. One member must retrieve a yellow flag, while the other retrieved a red flag, which they may exchange for their next clue.

Only Adam & Bethany chose this task.

Choice B: Shine
Teams must make their way to the Gate of Provence and found that they must polish a set of armor. After each getting a helmet and chestplate down from a wall, they must put on the armor pieces and polish each other's armor while wearing it. Once the knights were satisfied with their work, they would receive their next clue.

Amy & Maya, Brooke & Robbie, Kym & Alli, Misti & Jim, and Tim & Te Jay chose this task.

Adam & Bethany used their Express Pass to bypass the Flag Detour.

Teams must make their way to Fort Manoel to check in.
For coming in first place, Adam & Bethany each won $10,000.
