Route Markers

The order of departure from the Chateau des Alpilles are as follows:

  1. Tian & Jaree (2:26 am)
  2. Jon & Al (2:41 am)
  3. Millie & Chuck (2:41 am)
  4. Monica & Sheree (2:45 am)
  5. Reichen & Chip (2:54 am)
  6. David & Jeff (2:57 am)
  7. Kelly & Jon (3:00 am)
  8. Steve & Dave (4:19 am)

Teams must drive to Marseille Provence Airport and fly to Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Once there, teams must find the "White Skinny Bridge" and figure out that the next route marker was located at the Magere Brug.

Using a provided map, teams must take a marked boat and navigate the Canals of Amsterdam to find the next route marker at the Scheepvaart Museum.

The Fast Forward instructions were given to teams after finding their clue at the Margere Brug. Teams must head to the Molen van Sloten windmill and ride it for 10 revolutions. Once they have completed 10 revolutions, they can claim the Fast Forward. Millie & Chuck won the Fast Forward.

Choice A: 500 Kilograms
Teams must make their way to the cheese market in Alkmaar and dress up in Dutch outfits and traditional wooden clogs. They must then use a wooden stretcher to carry heavy wheels of cheese across the market to a scale. Once they have collected enough cheese to weigh exactly 500 kg, they would get their next clue.

Reichen & Chip and Steve & Dave chose this task.

Choice B: 15 Feet
Teams must make their way to Klein Farm, where they would don protective outfits. They must then search through a 15 ft high pile of cow manure that would be processed into fertilizer for their next clue.

David & Jeff, Jon & Al, Kelly & Jon, Monica & Sheree, and Tian & Jaree chose this task.

Teams must drive to Monnickendam and find their clue at the Smoker Statue.

"Which one of you has a firm grip and likes seafood?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must get on a marked boat and, using only their hands, catch 25 eels and put them in a marked container. Once all of the eels have been collected, the fisherman would give them their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive to Muiden and find the Kasteel Muiderslot to check in. For coming in first, Millie & Chuck won a seven-day Mexican Rivera cruise vacation on Royal Caribbean.
