I Told You Less Martinis and More Cardio is the season premiere of The Amazing Race: All-Stars.

Synopsis

THE AMAZING RACE: ALL-STARS will reunite some of the most memorable, entertaining and controversial teams from previous seasons, who will travel more than 45,000 miles, spanning five continents in 28 days, with stops in such locations as Argentina, Mozambique and Chile, to name a few. These former teams will pair up for one final trek around the globe as they battle the best of the best in a Race to the Finish Line for their second attempt at the million dollar prize.

These fierce competitors are no longer strangers to the game or to each other and relationships will be tested at every point along the way. Teams will be forced to choose between pre-existing relationships and the spirit of competition. Will new alliances form and will old bonds be broken? [2]

Story

Route Markers

Teams must fly to Quito, Ecuador. Upon arrival, teams must make their way by taxi to Plaza de San Francisco to find their next clue.

Teams must make their way to Pim's Restaurant to receive a departure time from the manager. There are only 3 times available: 7:00 am, 7:15 am, and 7:30 am. There are four teams that depart at 7:00, four teams depart at 7:15, and three will depart at 7:30.

Using a map, teams must drive themselves to the north entrance of Cotopaxi National Park and find Hacienda Yanahurco to find their next clue.

Choice A: Wrangle It
Teams must help local cowboys lasso, tie down, and groom one wild horse, whose hooves grow so long that they prevent them from walking properly. Team members had to use traditional tools to clip its hooves to a safe length and to trim its mane and tail. When the horse is free, they would receive their next clue.

All of the teams chose this task.

Choice B: Recover It
Teams must put on historical military uniforms. Then, they must search the field for three items missing from the uniform: an epaulette, a button and a sword. Once they found, a general would receive their next clue.

None of the teams chose this task.

Teams must make their way by foot to Mirador Cotopaxi to check in.

For coming in first place, Rob & Amber won a trip to the Four Seasons Resort, Whistler Lodge in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada provided by Travelocity.
