This One Is for One Million Dollars is the season finale of The Amazing Race 31.
The order of departure from Bovenwidje Lake is as follows:
The team member assigned to this Roadblock would have to decipher a World War II code. They must listen to a speech from Neville Chamberlain and pick up the fifteenth, thirtieth, and fourth words. They must translate the letters into numbers based on alphabetical order. Under each number was a group of three letters, which they must then rearrange into the final message, "The Dunkirk evacuation has begun. We will never surrender." Teams must then type the message on an Underwood Portable typewriter and deliver it to a brigadier outside the castle's barracks to receive their next clue. The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Teams must return to their helicopter and fly back to London. Once there, they must travel to Masthouse Terrace Pier to find their next clue.
Choice A: Know
Teams must take a taxi and memorize fifteen streets and seven landmarks given by the driver. Once back at Kensington Road, they must recite the route to Dave Cannell, the master of the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers to receive their next clue. Leo & Jamal, Nicole & Victor, and Tyler & Korey chose this task.
Choice B: Row
Teams must row a double scull through a 200-meter course on The Serpentine in under one minute to receive their next clue. Only Colin & Christie chose this task.
Teams must make their way to Camden Market. However, before they can check in, they must search nearby shops for the marked items in a display and use the items to recreate the display. Once finished, they can then check in.
The order from departure from Camden Market is as follows:
Teams must travel to the Guardian Building to find their next clue.
The team member assigned to this Roadblock must rappel face first 500 feet down the building. On the way down, they would have to look for a series of numbers that they would need to unlock a bank vault, along with specific turn-by-turn instructions listed in the basement, to retrieve their next clue. The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Teams must travel to the Fowling Warehouse in Hamtramck, where they must play a game of fowling that entailed each team member to throw a football toward each other to knock down bowling pins until all are knocked down, to receive their next clue.
Teams must travel to Third Man Records, where they must properly press five two-tone vinyl records using Race colors. Once made with a distinct line between colors and labels, they will receive their next clue from a record worker.
Teams must travel to the Heidelberg Project, where they will search through a field of clue boxes scattered throughout the outdoor art institution for one with a clue.
Teams must travel to Hart Plaza, where they will find their next clue atop a drum.
Teams must assemble a five-piece drum kit that matched an example which they were not allowed to touch. As they build, musicians will play The White Stripes single, "Seven Nation Army". Once the drum kit is correctly assembled, teams will receive their final clue.
