  4. Natalie & Nadiya (1:44 pm)

Teams must fly to Moscow, Russia. Upon arrival, teams must travel by taxi to the Zurab Tsereteli Sculpture Park to find their next clue.

Teams must travel by taxi to the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge and find Ivan the Terrible's guards to receive their next clue.

Choice A: Alphabetized
Teams would have to travel to the Russian State Library and are given a list of books by author, title, and year. They have to use the paper card catalog system, in Russian, to locate four of the books on the list. Once they think they have the correct location in the stacks, a librarian would direct them to the proper room to allow the team to get the books. Teams then check their retrieved books with the head librarian to receive their next clue.

Only Trey & Lexi chose this task.

Choice B: Synchronized
Teams would have to participate in a synchronized swimming routine with six other swimmers of the Russian national developmental team. After practicing the routine, they'll perform it for a judge, who would either pass them and give them their next clue, or would require the teams to practice more.

Abbie & Ryan, James & Abba, Jaymes & James, Josh & Brent, and Natalie & Nadiya chose this task.

Josh & Brent were unable to complete the Synchronized Detour, and were simply handed their clue and assessed a 4-hour penalty at the start of the next leg.

Teams must travel by taxi to the Luzhkov Bridge and search for the Trees of Love to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would have to select one of the marked Trees of Love, which are trees covered in padlocks, and unlock 10 of the locks with the provided set of keys to free a banner held to the tree. Once they've freed the banner and unfolded it, they would find the next clue concealed inside, a 100 ruble banknote.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel by taxi to picture on the back of the ruble, the Bolshoi Theatre, to check in.

For coming in first place, Trey & Lexi won a trip for two to Maui, Hawaii, provided by Travelocity.

For coming in last place, James & Abba will have to perform a Speed Bump at some point during the next leg of the race.
