Route Markers

The race begins at Vista Hermosa Natural Park in Los Angeles, California, United States.

Teams must use public transportation to make their way to Los Angeles International Airport. The first three teams that arrive at the airport would receive tickets on a flight to Santiago, Chile scheduled to arrive one hour ahead of the second fight. Upon arrival in Santiago, teams take a bus to Valparaíso, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must make their way to Wulff Castle, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must take a taxi to Ascensor Villaseca, where they would find their next clue.

"Who has the balance of a cat and the courage of a lion?"

The team member assigned to this Roadblock must cross a tightrope the length of a football field suspended 120 feet above the ground to the end of the valley to receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

After Adrian's second failed attempt and after all other teams had already checked in at the Pit Stop, host Phil Keoghan came out to the Roadblock location and Dana & Adrian.

Teams must ride the funicular at Ascensor Artillería down to the base of the mountain, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must make their way to Paseo Templeman, where they must pick up painting supplies (four paint cans, paint brushes, and a ladder). They must then find a group of house painters next to a house matching the color of their paint. Once at the house, they must finish painting a portion of the house to receive their next clue.

Teams must make their way on foot to Palacio Baburizza to check in.
For coming in first place, Jordan & Jeff won a trip for two to Vancouver, British Columbia provided by Travelocity.
