Teams must drive themselves to the statue of Hans Christian Andersen at City Hall Square, where they would find their next clue.

"Who's ready to take a fairy tale ride?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must memorize a poem inscribed on the base of the statue, then use a map on a provided bicycle's wheel to navigate themselves to the Teatermuseet i Hofteatret, where they must recite the poem with dramatic flair in order to receive their next clue. If they fail to recite the poem correctly or are judged to not have enough dramatic flair, they must go back to the statue and start all over.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to Legoland Billund and find the Pirate Carousel ride, where they would receive their next clue.

Using provided Lego pieces, teams must piece together a picture of their next destination, while riding on the Pirate Carousel ride. Teams may only work on the puzzle while the ride is in motion.

Teams must drive themselves to Hamburg Hauptbahnhof in Hamburg, Germany, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must take a train to Brussels, Belgium, including making a required transfer at Cologne. Once there, teams must make their way to the European Parliament Building, where they would find their next clue.

This leg's Detour was aired as a miscellaneous task, as all teams chose the same side of the Detour. The second half of the Detour is unknown.

Choice A: Bodybuilding Posedown
Teams must travel to the Concert Noble, where they would compete in a bodybuilding competition in honor of Jean-Claude Van Damme. Teams must put on bikinis, cover their bodies in posing oil, and then learn a series of bodybuilding poses. They must then perform the routine in front of three judges and must earn a combine total of at least 12 points to receive their next clue.

All teams chose this task.

Teams must take a taxi to Parc Élisabeth to check in.


For coming in first place, Amani & Marcus won a trip for two to Panama, provided by Travelocity.

This leg is a No-Rest Leg. Teams would check in as normal, but receive their clue to start the next leg from host Phil Keoghan. The team that comes in last place does not receive a penalty.
