Teams must travel more than 6,000 miles to Helsinki, Finland.
From there, they must find a coffee shop named "Kappeli", then
log-on to AOL using one of the marked laptops to discover a
surprise in their e-mail.
Due to limited availability of flights out of Madagascar, teams
are being provided tickets to Paris, France, where they must
make their own arrangements to connect to Helsinki. However,
they are under no obligation to use these tickets.
All of the teams then fly to Johannesburg, South Africa where
they'll each connect to Helsinki by Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and

AOL, Tyler gets a video message from his mother and James gets a
message from his sisters. Kandice gets a video message from her

Travel to the Olympic
Upon the teams reaching the
stadium, they complete the final task of this leg,
rappelling down the tower. After one team has completed the

This leg is not over. KEEP
And that's where this episode ends, we'll find out where
the other half of the leg will go from here next time.

eleven teams of two, joined by family or relationship, follow
