I Wonder If They Like Blondes in New Zealand? is the fourth episode of The Amazing Race 13.
The order of departure from Mirador el Monticulo are as follows:
Teams must drive themselves to the summit of Mount Eden, where they would find their next clue.
The Fast Forward instructions were given to teams after finding their clue at Gulf Harbour. Teams must drive themselves to the Sky Tower and climb the mast to retrieve a Travelocity roaming gnome from the top of the tower. Once they have the gnome, the team would receive the Fast Forward and receive a helicopter ride to the Pit Stop. Ken & Tina won the Fast Forward.
"Who has an eye for detail?"
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must select an image of a tā moko tattoo and match the design shown on the image to that of one on a Māori warrior's face amongst several hundred performing the traditional haka dance. If they chose the wrong warrior, the warrior would take the image away, and they must start again. If the match is correct, the Māori warrior would hand them their next clue.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Teams must drive themselves to CityLife Hotel and make their way to the roof, where they would find their next clue.
On the rooftop of the CityLife Hotel, teams must use binoculars to spot one of eight Travelocity roaming gnomes hidden around the hotel's vicinity performing a New Zealand wishlist activity. Once they have spotted a gnome, teams must drive to its location to retrieve it to find their next clue, which was written under the gnome's base. Teams must then carry the gnome for the remainder of the leg.
Teams must drive themselves to Kiwi 360 in Te Puke, where they would find their next clue.
Choice A: Matter of Time
Teams must drive themselves to Kiwi Orchard Farm and use their feet to crush a vat of kiwifruit to produce 12 quarts of juice. Once completed, each member must then drink a glass of the juice to receive their next clue.
Aja & Ty, Andrew & Dan, Nick & Starr, and Toni & Dallas chose this task.
Choice B: Matter of Skill
Teams must drive themselves to Blokart Heaven and assemble two Blokarts. Once assembled, each team member must complete three laps around a track on their Blokart. Once finished, the track official would give them their next clue.
