Teams drive themselves to Montevideo, Uruguay and go to Shake Mega Disco. Once at the disco, team will need to find balloons that look like globes and pop one to get their next clue.

Teams must drive to Colonia del Sacramento and take a ferry to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Once in Buenos Aires, teams will need to find the grave of Evita Perón at Recoleta Cemetery to search for their next clue.

At Evita Perón's grave, teams would have the option to Yield a team. None of the teams opted to use the Yield, and was left unaired.

Choice A: Perro
Teams must take on the extremely popular job of dog walking. They have to begin the task outside the cemetery and walk eight dogs on a 1 mile course, while using a provided map to navigate past a series of three checkpoints to their final destination, Floralis Genérica. Once the team brings all of the dogs, they would receive their next clue.

Bob & Joyce and Kami & Karli chose this task.

Choice B: Tango
Teams would have to travel across the city's crowded streets to Teatro Lola Membrives filled with similar-looking tango dancers. They are given a photo of a tango dancer and have to find the dancer who matched their photo and receive their next clue. If the teams gave it to the wrong dancer, the dancer would take the photo and they would have to get a new picture and try again.

Alison & Donny, Brandon & Nicole, Charla & Mirna, Chip & Kim, Colin & Christie, Jim & Marsha, Linda & Karen, and Marshall & Lance chose this task.

Teams must go to San Antonio de Areco and find La Estancia La Invernada where their next clue is located.

"The person who performs this task should have quick hands and quick feet."

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock will enter a corral and attempt to remove a bandanna from the neck of one of the calves. Racers are not allowed to pull or tackle the calves. Once they have a bandanna, a gaucho would give them their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must take a horse-drawn carriage to La Porteña to check in.
