It's Like Adam Building His First House! Summary

The teams begin at their Pit Stop in Ellis Beach, Australia. It's the twelfth and final pit stop in this race around the world. The first team to depart is David and Jeff, followed by Reichen and Chip and then Kelly and Jon. The clue tells them to drive to an Aboriginal Cultural Park. Like the previous leg, they have one dollar for this leg of the race. The teams all arrive at the cultural park, which doesn't open until 6:00 A.M. At that time, they all head in and watch a traditional ceremony. Afterwards, they receive a clue telling them to drive fifteen miles to the general aviation terminal at the airport in Cairnes. The teams all get into a driving race to get there and Reichen and Chip end up going so fast that their vehicles spins off the road. Still, they're okay and they all reach the clue at the general aviation terminal. It's a Detour: "Wing It" or "Wander It." In "Wing It," the teams must skydive out of a plane to their clue, with the help of an instructor. In "Wander It," they have to drive to mangrove forst and then boat to the skydive landing zone. All teams choose the fast "Wing It" option. They all complete the task in the order in which they arrived: David and Jeff, Kelly and Jon, and Reichen and Chip and then receive a clue telling them to fly the island of Hawaii, a.k.a. "Big Island," 4,700 miles away. They head to the airport, where David and Jeff opt for a flight to Sydney, while the other two teams choose a flight to Tokyo that will then connect them to Hawaii. Once in Sydney, David and Jeff have major problems. They find they've missed all of the major flights they can catch to Hawaii and are in serious jeopardy. This is the last we see of them until the very end of the episode. Meanwhile, Kelly and Jon and Reichen and Chip both arrive in Tokyo. Reichen and Chip catch the connecting flight to Hawaii, but Kelly and Jon just miss it, despite the help of a friendly airport employee. Even better for Reichen and Chip, they're seated in business class due to the hurry, even thought they only paid for economy class. Kelly and Jon end up on a flight an hour and ten minutes behind. Reichen and Chip arrive in Hawaii, where they receive a clue directing them to drive to the southernmost point in the United States, Kaulana Bay. They get stuck in traffic and Kelly and Jon's flight is shown arriving. Still, Reichen and Chip arrive first and face a Roadblock. Chip chooses to do the Roadblock, which involves swimming out to a tiki head, diving down and grabbing a head and then bringing it back to the beach and chiseling it to receive the next clue. Chip has a lot of trouble with the rock, but eventually complete it and he and Reichen receive a clue stating to head to Hawaii's Volcano National Park and find the next route marker. Kelly and Jon arrive some time afterward and complete the task. Both teams eventually arrive at the Volcano National Park, where they receive a clue directing them to Phoenix, Arizona, where they must find the U.S.S. Arizona Anchor Monument. They take flights on opposite sides of Hawaii to Hawaii's International Airport. There, Reichen and Chip get seats on the very front of the flight to Arizona. Both teams search for information so they'll know exactly where to find the anchor once in Arizona. In Arizona, Reichen and Chip get the first taxi and are the first team to the anchor. There, they receive a clue directing them to the Southeast Entrance of Sundevil Stadium. Once there, they find a clue, "Happy Valentine's Day + White + White." After some confusion, they put it together and figure out that "Happy Valentine's Day" means Section 214, while one of the "Whites" is 33, while the other is 11. These are the jersey numbers of actual people with the last name "White" who played for the team. The clue directs them to the finish line, Papago Park. Just as they're leaving, Kelly and Jon arrive. They solve the puzzle quickly and now the two teams are racing to the finish line. Reichen and Chip arrive first and take the specified bike path to the finish line. They are the winners of this edition of The Amazing Race. Kelly and Jon arrive not far behind in second. David and Jeff end up in Hawaii, where they receive a clue stating that Reichen and Chip have already crossed the finish line and that Kelly and Jon came in second.

The Amazing Race Show Summary

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.
