The eight teams take off from their Pit Stop in Africa, first traveling to a slave-house where slaves were held until heading to the New World. There, a memorial to those slaves particularly touches Gus and has him appreciating the human aspect of The Amazing Race. One team in particular had no money to begin with because of their penalty in the previous leg so they had to ask the locals of Goree for money before leaving the island.
Next, the teams fly to Germany where they search for a clue along the remains of the Berlin Wall. After some teams have confusion about finding the clue, they travel to a statue of busted chains near a church that was partially destroyed in World War II. There, A Detour has teams choose between linking sausages or going to a brauhaus to search for their pictures on coasters and exchanging them for cups of beer at a brauhaus. Both choices were challenging and required high team work. Soon, the teams encounter a Roadblock in which one member must race a soapbox car down a mountain finishing before 37 seconds. The next clue instructed teams to find the next Pit Stop located at the Brandenburg Gate. On the way, one team remains in last place but another makes a costly mistake before the Roadblock resulting in a tense foot-race to the finish. In the end, one team member yells at his partner about losing causing some major stress while another is too late to check in and are eliminated.

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.
