Think Like an Office Chair is the fourth episode of The Amazing Race: Family Edition.
A close race to the Pit Stop fuels an intense rivalry between two families.
The families depart from the Space Shuttle in Huntsville, Ala. in search of the World's Largest Office Chair located in Anniston, Ala. Teams will pass through the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and the Talladega Motor Speedway, as well as Fairview Riverside State Park in Madisonville, La., in search of clues that will lead them to their next destination. The intensity of the Race takes its toll on one family member who has a breakdown on the way to the Pit Stop. Another team is paralyzed by fear and panics about whether or not to complete a task.
The order of departure from the Space Shuttle Pathfinder are as follows:
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must climb the World's Largest Office Chair to retrieve their next clue.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Teams must look around the Southern Colonel Mobile Homes to find one of three departure times for the next morning: 7:20 am (for two teams), 7:40 am (for two teams), and 8:00 am (for three teams). Once a team has chosen a mobile home and time, they cannot switch for a different one.
Teams must drive themselves to Madisonville in the "Pelican State", which they must figure out referred to the state of Louisiana, and find their next clue on the fishing docks of Fairview-Riverside State Park
Choice A: Work
Teams must use a two-man saw to cut slices off a log 12 inches in diameter. Once they have cut four slices, a log sawyer would give them their clue.
The Bransen, Schroeder, and Weaver Families chose this task.
Choice B: Play
Teams must make their way by canoe to a riverboat where they would play a game of blackjack against a professional dealer. To win a round, the hand of each team member must total more than the dealer's hand, or the dealer must bust (the dealer's hand must go over 21). When the team wins three rounds, the dealer would give them their clue.
Teams must drive themselves across Lake Pontchartrain Causeway on Lake Pontchartrain to New Orleans, park their car on Esplanade Avenue, and run across the French Quarter to find Preservation Hall to check in.
For coming in first place, the Bransen Family won a Universal Orlando Resort package at Orlando, Florida provided by Travelocity.
