Many Firsts But Don't Be Last is the season premiere of The Amazing Race 34.

Story[]

12 new teams start their journey on THE AMAZING RACE outside the U.S., in Munich, Germany, and in this season's shocking new twist, one team will be eliminated at the end of every leg.

Route Markers[]

The race begins at Nymphenburg Palace in Munich, Bavaria, Germany.

At the start of the leg, teams encountered a new twist called the Scramble. Teams were told the locations of all three tasks, which were inspired by Oktoberfest, that they could complete in any order. For each task completed, teams would receive a puzzle piece. When all three were received, they would be combined to form a clue that would reveal the location of the Pit Stop. The locations of each task, which teams must drive themselves to, were as follows:

One team member must roll a beer keg through an obstacle course, before handing the keg to their partner at the other end, who must then roll the keg back to the starting point. Once teams are able to complete the obstacle course within 55 seconds, they would receive a puzzle piece. If they fail to complete the obstacle course within the allotted time, they would have to wait two minutes before being allowed to make another attempt.[1]

Teams must use a two-man saw to the beat of Bavarian music to completely saw a slice of wood off the end of a log to receive a puzzle piece.

"Who wants to chill?"

The team member assigned to this Roadblock must use the provided tools to retrieve a puzzle piece from a large block of ice.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must assemble all their puzzle pieces, which would be in the shape of an angel. They must park their cars at one of the marked parking spaces between 22 and 25 Widenmayerstraße, then cross Luitpoldbrücke or Prinzregentenstraße via an underground crosswalk. Teams were left to figure out that the Pit Stop was located at Friedensengel, where they would check in.
For coming in first place, Derek & Claire won $2,500 each.
