Teams must "fly to the Persian Gulf and find the world's tallest building", leaving teams to figure out that they had to fly to Dubai, United Arab Emirates and that their next clue was at the Burj Dubai. Upon arrival, teams must make their way to The Dubai Fountain and sign up for one of two groups that would ride an elevator to the 124th floor of the Burj Dubai, which was still under construction at the time of filming, where they would find their next clue. The first group would consist of the first four teams and depart at 5:30 am, while the second group would consist of the remaining four teams and depart at 5:45 am.

The Fast Forward instructions were given to teams after finding their clue at the Burj Dubai. Teams must make their way to the Dubai Autodrome, where one team member would have to operate a Formula Three open-wheel car and complete a single lap around the track in 45 seconds or less. If successful, they would win the Fast Forward and be driven to the Pit Stop in a Maserati. Meghan & Cheyne won the Fast Forward.

Teams must make their way to Car Park P2 at The Dubai Mall and choose a marked car. They must then drive themselves to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, where they would be driven in a 4x4 vehicle to their next clue.

"Who thinks they can beat the desert heat?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must search the Desert Reserve for a series of urns buried in the sand. Some of the urns would contain water, while others would be empty. When they have found enough water to fill their bag, they must give it to a Bedouin in exchange for their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to Ski Dubai, where they would find their next clue.

Choice A: Build a Snowman
Teams must take snow from Ski Dubai and carry it outside to build a traditional snowman, complete with two coal eyes, carrot nose, and a top hat, before the snow melts. If the snowman is to the attendant's satisfaction, she would give teams their next clue.

Gary & Matt, Lance & Keri, Maria & Tiffany, Mika & Canaan, and Sam & Dan chose this task.


Choice B: Find a Snowman
Teams must ride the ski lift to the top of an artificial mountain. At the top, they must sled down to the bottom, then dig through piles of snow for a toy snowman buried within it. Once they have found a toy snowman, they must give it to a person in a polar bear suit in exchange for their next clue.

Brian & Ericka and Flight Time & Big Easy chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Souk Madinat Jumeirah to check in.
For coming in first place, Meghan & Cheyne won a trip for two to Jamaica, provided by Travelocity.
