You Deal With This Before I Hyperventilate is the penultimate episode of The Amazing Race 6.


Some teams begin lashing out at each other as the stress of reaching the end of the race begins to weigh on their minds.

Four teams set out from Sri Lanka and immediately make their way to Shanghai. In the middle of the night, one team gets lost in the streets and the stress of being lost causes tensions to rise between the two of them. Also, another team's taxi driver misleads them, which could end up being a costly mistake.[2]


Route Markers

The order of departure from Hotel Sigiriya are as follows:

  1. Kris & Jon (11:59 pm)
  2. Hayden & Aaron (12:04 am)
  3. Freddy & Kendra (12:05 am)
  4. Adam & Rebecca (12:06 am)

Teams must fly to Shanghai, China. Upon arrival, teams must make their way to the Yuyuan Gardens to search the grounds for their next clue.

Teams must make their way to Huaneng Union Tower to find their next clue.

At Huaneng Union Tower, teams would have the option to Yield a team. Freddy & Kendra used the Yield on Adam & Rebecca.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to wash a window on the exterior of the HuaXia Bank Tower, 40 stories above the ground. Washing the window would reveal a hidden message, Tai Chi, they have to lower themselves to the ground and report it to the supervisor, who would hand them their next clue if correct.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to the People's Heroes Monument. Once there, they have to find a group of Tai Chi performers and search for one of four masters holding their clue.

Teams must use a map to navigate their cab driver to the end of Jiangpu Road, where they will find their next clue.

Choice A: Bricks
Teams would use a traditional device to transport 300 clay bricks off a barge while balancing on a narrow wood plank. From there, they had to stack the bricks on a wooden pallet to receive their clue.

All of the teams chose this task.

Choice B: Ice
Teams have to load two 220-pound blocks of ice onto the back of flatbed tricycles and deliver them to a fish market four blocks away. Once there, they would have to break them into smaller pieces and place them into a tub to receive the next clue.

None of the teams chose this task.

Team must find the Peace Hotel South and head to the rooftop to check in.

For coming in first, Hayden & Aaron won a vacation to beautiful Hawaii, courtesy of American Airlines.
