The four remaining teams leave Christchurch and fly to Auckland for the leg that will determine the final 3.
The teams begin at Inverary sheep station, the previous pit stop and fly to Auckland. Once there, teams witnessed a Maori dance before continuing on with the race. The Fast Forward for this leg required teams to drive to the top of Mount Terawera where they would complete a treacherous volcano "scree" run, a near vertical sprint down a wall of loose volcanic rock to the bottom of a dormant volcano, where the Fast Forward clue would be waiting for them. One team claimed the Fast Forward, checked into the next Pit Stop and automatically became one of the final three teams.
Teams were then faced with a Detour, "Drop" or "Climb". All teams chose "Drop" which involved the largest free rappel in the world into an incredibly deep cavern known as "The lost world caves". Teams would find their next clue at the end of the long trail.
The race to the Pit Stop was tight with two teams in a close foot race, but one team could not make it in fast enough which resulted in their elimination.
Season 2 Episode 10 of The Amazing Race resulted in a 0.00 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
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.
