The nine teams continue to Stockholm, Sweden, but not before one is assessed a penalty for events in the previous episode. The teams make their way to an ice bar, where they must face an additional task by sliding a shot glass made of ice across a bar and hit a target. The teams then continue to the world's largest Ikea, where they face a Detour. Both tasks seem rather difficult, one called Count It requires successfully counting 2,304 objects, while the other called Build It, requires successful, proper building of a desk. Some initially choose the counting and ditch it for the Desk option. Two teams fall far behind due to choosing the wrong task. Next, the teams must make their way into the country and tandem bike to a farm. Here, teams discovered the first Yield of the race. But no one chose to use it on this leg. The teams then face a Roadblock involving rolling rough bales of hay to find hidden clues. There are 270 bales of hay and only 20 clues. This proves very exhausting for many teams and the possible downfall of one. The teams then make their way back to Stockholm to find the Auf Chapman, this leg's Pit Stop.
In the end, one team is eliminated due to failing to find a hidden clue in the hay bales.
Season 6 Episode 3 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.
