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 make their way to Moscow Timiryazev Agricultural Academy and find Study Building #6. Once there, teams must follow the marked path to the Large Chemistry Auditorium No. 1, where they would find their next clue.

At Moscow Timiryazev Agricultural Academy, James & Abba would receive their clue for their Speed Bump. James & Abba must help a Russian Orthodox priest to get to his church via limousine, before they are allowed to continue.

"Who's in the zone?"

The team member assigned to perform this 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. They would then be shown multiple instances of the same time zone map without the UTC offsets but with several other Russian cities highlighted. After the show, they must fill up a questionnaire with the corresponding local time for any five cities within an allotted time period. If they complete it in time and are correct, they would receive their next clue from the professor. If they are wrong or run out of time, they must watch the presentation and answer 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 must make their way to the Hotel National, where they must dress up as Russian soldiers and learn the steps of the Trepak dance. They must then properly perform the dance in front of a judge to receive their next clue.

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

Choice B: Shakers
Teams must make their way to the Hotel National, where they must attend a party with several impersonators of Russian historical figures in attendance. They must identify seven specific figures among impersonators of Catherine the Great, Joseph Stalin, Leon Trotsky, Leonid Brezhnev, Nicholas II of Russia, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Peter the Great, Sergei Rachmaninoff, 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 would receive their next clue from an Alexander Pushkin impersonator.

Only Josh & Brent chose this task.

James & Abba fell too far behind the other teams and did not complete this task.[1]

Teams must make their way 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.
