Route Markers[]

The order of departure from the Bridge of Peace are as follows:

  1. Zach & Rachel (10:39 pm)
  2. Burnie & Ashley (10:42 pm)
  3. Brodie & Kurt (10:45 pm)
  4. Dana & Matt (10:52 pm)
  5. Sheri & Cole (11:21 pm)
  6. Tyler & Korey (1:17 am)

Teams must fly to Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Upon arrival, teams must drive themselves to a Bedouin camp in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, where they would receive their next clue along with the Travelocity roaming gnome. Teams must carry the gnome with them for the remainder of the leg.

Choice A: Races
Teams must make their way to the Dubai Camel Race Track, where they must use bicycles to race against racing camels that can run up to 40 miles per hour on a 1.2-mile course. If both members can cross the finish line before any of the camels, they would receive their next clue. If they fail to beat the camels, they would receive a head start on subsequent attempts.

Brodie & Kurt, Sheri & Cole, and Tyler & Korey chose this task.


Choice B: Oasis
Teams must make their way to the Al Maha Desert, where they must lead four camels along a marked course across the desert to a Bedouin camp for their daily exercise. Once they have delivered the camels, they must each eat an offering of traditional regag bread and a glass of camel milk to receive their next clue.

Burnie & Ashley, Dana & Matt, and Zach & Rachel chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to the Aquaventure water park at Atlantis The Palm, where they would find their next clue.

"Who wants to take the bait?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must put on a diving helmet and descend into the shark tank surrounding the Leap of Faith water slide to retrieve a canister containing a puzzle, then place it into a net before resurfacing. To solve the puzzle, they must turn the canister so that the letters R, A, C, and E are in the appropriate spaces. Once they have completed the puzzle, they would receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Brodie & Kurt used their Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock. Brodie had chosen to perform the task prior to handing over the Express Pass.

Teams must make their way to the Poseidon's Revenge water slide in the park and ride down the slide to receive their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to Baniyas Abra Station and take an abra to Deira Old Souq Station to check in.


For coming in first place, Brodie & Kurt won a trip for two to Helsinki, Finland, provided by Travelocity.

For coming in last place, Sheri & Cole will have to perform a Speed Bump at some point during the next leg of the race.
