The teams start out in the Sahara desert. Kevin and Drew are the first to depart. The clue reads that they must get to the Palace Hotel in Tunis,300 miles away. Joe and Bill are the first to arrive at the clue. They must get to a spot outside the famous Coliseum in Rome. The teams head to the Tunisian airport. Tensions are high at the airport. At one point, Drew ask Team Guido if they want to have one of their legs broke. Joe and Bill laugh at this and don't see it as a threat. Drew then tells the team he was joking. Joe and Bill are the first of the teams to get tickets on the plane and are the last tickets on that flight. When the other teams arrive at the airport, the Guido's (all ready to go) decide to spy on the other teams and at one point, decide to eavesdrop. Teams are getting extremely frustrated when they learn of the air strike in Rome. They are having serious trouble getting tickets. With "charm," Kevin and Drew get tickets for themselves and two other teams (Nancy/Emily and Rob/Brennan).Team Guido discovers that these three teams have gotten better flights then them but they have a plan. The Guidos decide to cut them off at the boarding gates. This act makes most teams dislike Joe/Bill for a long period of time. It causes Kevin to get angry and Emily to cry. Nancy claims that she was pushed by one of the Guidos. Frank/Margarita get a flight to London and Karyn/Lenny are still looking for a flight. When they arrive at the flag outside the Coliseum, they are given a Detour. They have to chose between finding a statue of a foot and a statue of a hoof. The clue reads that they may pick up speed if they go for the hoof. Lenny and Karyn decide to go for the foot. The clue tells them that they must get to Castle Franco Emilia goes through Bologna by taking a train. Frank/Margarita and Joe/Bill take a cab and at the end of the leg are given a time penalty for this fault. Both teams say they did not take the taxi to cheat but misunderstood somehow. When the teams arrive at the Roadblock, one team member must drive a smart car to the pit stop and the other must be professionally driven in a sports car to the destination. Lenny and Karyn are the last team to arrive but this leg is the first of three non-elimination points.

The Amazing Race is an adventure reality show hosted by Phil Keoghan that pits 10, 11, or 12 teams of 2 or 4 people against each other in a race around the world for approximately 40 days. In a leg, they go to destinations where they will complete a roadblock, a task where 1 person completes (Season 1-7) or 2 people (Season 8), a detour, where you have to decide between two tasks that are usually opposite of each other, and a miscellaneous task.
After they complete all these tasks, they will be directed to go to a Pit stop where they will have a 24 hour rest period where they will be able to eat, drink, sleep, and mingle with other teams. The last team to check into the Pit Stop usually is eliminated, but sometimes there is a non-elimination leg in which no one is eliminated. After all teams are eliminated except for 3, these three race to the finish line where the winning team wins 1 million dollars.
