Route Markers

The order of departure from the Bolshoi Theatre are as follows:

  1. Trey & Lexi
  2. Jaymes & James
  3. Natalie & Nadiya
  4. Abbie & Ryan
  5. Josh & Brent
  6. James & Abba

None of the team's departure times were shown on-screen.

Teams must travel by taxi to Timiryazev Agricultural Academy and find Study Building #6. Once there, teams must follow the marked path to the Large Chemistry Auditorium No. 1 to find their next clue.

At the Large Chemistry Auditorium No. 1, James & Abba would receive their clue for their Speed Bump.

James & Abba have to help a Russian Orthodox priest to get to his church via limousine, before they are allowed to continue.

The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would be shown a brief slideshow, showing a sample time in Moscow, a map of Russia's nine different time zones with their UTC offsets and Moscow's location highlighted. Then they are shown multiple instances of the same time zone map without the UTC offsets but with several other Russian cities highlighted. After the show, they have to fill in the corresponding local time for any five cities within an allotted time period. If they complete it in time and are correct, teams will receive their next clue from the professor. If they are wrong or run out of time, they have to watch the presentation and do the quiz again.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Natalie & Nadiya used their Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock. Natalie had chosen to perform the task prior to handing over the Express Pass.

James & Abba were not shown performing this task, but disclosed in an interview that Abba performed the task.[1][2]

Choice A: Movers
Teams would have to dress up as Russian soldiers and learn the steps of the Trepak dance. Teams then perform the dance in front of a judge who would give them their next clue if they perform the dance correctly.

Abbie & Ryan, Jaymes & James, Natalie & Nadiya, and Trey & Lexi chose this task.

Choice B: Shakers
Teams would have to go to a party where several impersonators of Russian historical figures are attending. They have to identify seven specific figures, Catherine the Great, Joseph Stalin, Leon Trotsky, Leonid Brezhnev, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Peter the Great, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Nicholas II of Russia, and Vladimir Lenin, and fill out a form identifying how many impersonators of each person were present. If they identify the correct number of impersonators, they will get their next clue from an Alexander Pushkin impersonator

Only Josh & Brent chose this task.

James & Abba were not shown performing either side of the Detour.

Teams must travel by taxi to Sokolniki Park, and search for the Veranda Tantsev to check in.

For coming in first place, Jaymes & James won a trip for two to Costa Rica, provided by Travelocity.
