  4. Steve & Allie
  5. Joe & Heidi

Only Jordan & Jeff's departure time was shown on screen. The other nine teams were all seen at the bus terminal at 5:00 am.

Teams must travel by bus back to Santiago, then to Puerto Varas. Once there, teams must drive themselves to the Hotel Petrohue and travel by boat to Isla Margarita, where they will hike to the Mirador to find their next clue.

Choice A: Llama Adoration
Teams would have to travel to a farm where they'll dress a llama by placing a blanket on its back and a scarf around its neck to receive their next clue.

Carol & Brandy, Dan & Jordan, Jet & Cord, Jody & Shannon, Joe & Heidi, Louie & Michael, and Monique & Shawne chose this task.

Choice B: Condor Consternation
Teams would have to travel to the beach where they will don special shoes resembling birds' feet and use a hang glider-like condor costume to glide out to a clue in the water.

Brent & Caite, Jordan & Jeff, and Steve & Allie chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Onces y Cabañas Bellavista to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to this Roadblock would have to collect several ingredients used to make kuchen: a plate of butter, a bowl of sugar, a bag of flour, a baker's dozen of eggs from the hen house, and a cup of milk straight from a cow. Once the ingredients are collected, team members would have to give them to the baker to receive a serving of kuchen and their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús and find the Gruta de la Virgen to check in.

For coming in first place, Jet & Cord won a pair of sailboats.
