The teams take off from their Pit Stop in Sao Paulo, Brazil and are instructed to find the Edificio Copan and then locate bloco "F." The teams find that it opens at 8 A.M., but once it does open, one member of each team faces a Roadblock requiring them to slide down a fire escape. Danielle overcomes a fear of heights to accomplish this task. The teams then take one of three charter buses and travel 150 miles to Brotas, Brazil. They then face a Detour: Press It or Climb It. Most teams choose Climb It, which involves completing a ninety foot rope climb up a waterfall, but a few opt for Press It, which involves creating 500ml of ethanol. Confusion ensues as teams make for the Pit Stop at Fazenda Primavera da Serra, but face vehicle breakdowns and loss of direction.

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.
