Teams must travel by taxi to the Corinth Canal bridge to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would bungee jump 240 feet into the Corinth Canal. Once they've complete the jump, they will receive their next clue from the bungee instructor.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must fly to Hanoi, Vietnam. Upon arrival teams must travel by taxi to the Lý Thái Tổ statue near Hoàn Kiếm Lake and find a group of exercisers using fans. Among the exercisers are ones that have a yellow stick in the middle, from whom they'll receive their next clue.

Teams must travel by taxi to Quán Sứ Temple to find their next clue.

Choice A: Bamboo Climb
Teams must pick up one of three available ladders and bring them to a nearby apartment on Cầu Gỗ, and squeeze themselves up the narrow stairway to the roof. On the roof, teams will need to retrieve a birdcage. Once they have the birdcage, teams will need to return the ladder and bring the birdcage back to where they started to receive their next clue. Note: Their are only 3 ladders. Thus, if more than 3 teams choose this detour, they will have to wait.

Becca & Floyd, London & Logan, and Matt & Redmond chose this task.

Choice B: Window Design
Teams must pick up three mannequins; a male, a female, and a child, and bring them to a window display on Chân Cầm, where they will need to use a photo for reference to dress the mannequins and decorate the window. Once the window is picture perfect, teams will receive their next clue.

Brooke & Scott and Tara & Joey chose this task.

Teams must travel by taxi to Thống Nhất Park to check in.

For coming in first place, Becca & Floyd won a trip for two to the Galápagos Islands, provided by Travelocity.

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