In the first leg of the episode, the teams make their way from Capos, Costa Rica to Arizona. A Detour requires them to choose between Brush or Barrel, in which they must either paint cart wheels or load sugarcane and then transport it six miles. Later, one member of each team does a Roadblock that requries them to do fifty laps around a track in a supercart. The teams then travel 32 miles to the Pit Stop, Fort McDowell Adventures. One team arrives last, but is not eliminated.
The teams continue in the second leg and receive a clue directing them to the Fighter Combat International at Arizona's Gateway Airport. A Roadblock requires one member of each team to fly a stunt team. The teams make a stop at the Grand Canyon before traveling to Geln Canyon Park and choosing between two Detour options --- Bearing or Bailing. All but one team chooses Bailing, in which they bail water out of a boat, while the other chooses Bearing, requiring them to find cards navigating via compass coordinates. The teams race for the Pit Stop at Lake Powell, Antelope Point and one is 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.
