Low to the Ground, That's My Technique is the season finale of The Amazing Race: All-Stars.

Synopsis

The final three All-Star teams race towards the finish line for their second chance at one million dollars and, for two teams, its the chance to become the first all-female team to win the Race, on the season finale.[2]

Story

Route Markers

The order of departure from Fort Soledad are as follows:

  1. Dustin & Kandice (11:53 am)
  2. Eric & Danielle (12:55 pm)
  3. Charla & Mirna (1:29 pm)

Teams must fly to Honolulu, Hawaii. Upon arrival, teams must take a taxi to Kamaka Air Hangar, where they must sign up for one of three charter helicopter rides departing 10 minutes apart to Lanai. Once they land, they must choose a marked jeep to drive themselves to Kaumalapau Harbor, where they would receive their next clue from a kahuna.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must jump off a 30-foot cliff into the water below.[3] However, the exact objective of the task was unaired.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Mirna and Danielle are shown in promotional materials performing the Roadblock while Kandice had already completed 6 Roadblocks, meaning that Dustin had done this task by default.

Footage of Charla & Mirna approaching jeeps with the clue inside each jeep after their helicopter landed in Lanai suggest that the location of the Roadblock was most likely before the Detour, though the exact location is unknown.

Choice A: Under
Teams must take a boat to an underwater cave and swim under the rocks to retrieve their next clue, which was anchored to the floor of the cave.

Eric & Danielle and Dustin & Kandice chose this task.


Choice B: Over
Teams must take a boat to an inlet and use a paddle board and paddle together to reach a buoy to retrieve their next clue.

Only Charla & Mirna chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Shipwreck Beach and search the beach for their next clue.

Teams must use a kayak to paddle to a buoy near a World War II shipwreck and retrieve their next clue.

Teams must fly to San Francisco, California. Upon arrival, teams must find the Grateful Dead House, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must take a taxi to the San Francisco Old Mint, where they would find their next clue.

At the San Francisco Old Mint, one team member must enter the vault assigned to their team and answer four questions relating to their opinion of other teams on the race that was displayed on the wall:

  • Which other team is the least trustworthy?
  • Which other team has the best sense of humor?
  • Which other team is the most overrated?
  • Which other team is the one you most want to stay in touch with?
Their answers would create a four-digit code which locked a safe containing their final clue. The other team member then had 10 minutes to guess his or her teammate's answers and enter the same code to unlock the safe. If they guessed correctly, the safe would open and they could retrieve their final clue. If the 10 minutes expired without a correct guess, a guard would hand them their final clue.

Teams must make their way to San Francisco Botanical Garden to cross the Finish Line.
