"The Amazing Race"- 21ST SEASON PREMIERE

OPENING CLUE (Pasadena): The teams start out rappelling down a bridge to their clue attached to a backpack before they travel to where they need to go in a '13 Ford Escape Titanium 4WD. They need to drive to the airport & choose from one of two flights to Shanghai- China Airlines Flight #7 (first seven teams only; lands at 10:50 AM) & EVA AIR Flight #15 (lands at 12:05 PM).

Clue #2:
Take a taxi to the Yuanshen Sports Center Stadium, where the next clue box can be found.


ROADBLOCK:
One member per team has to score a point against a junior ping-pong champion to get their fourth clue.


Clue #4:
Head to the Cui Ping Jiu Jia restaurant at Gui Zhou Lu 107 for the next clue.


ROADBLOCK #2:
This time, somebody has to eat some frog fallopian tubes to continue on.


Clue #6:
Find a lady using an abacus at The Bund to retrieve the next clue.


FIRST PIT STOP:
The Bund Observatory, where the first eliminated team will be revealed (although the clue says they might be eliminated).


The first Double Jackpot Team will be...

























































































































...Abbie & Ryan! Now, even though I don't have too much confidence in them winning the $2M, let me tell you that the first-leg winners have won the top cash prize in six of the first 20 seasons (S1, S10, S13, S15, S19 & S20).


2. Amy & Daniel
3. Caitlin & Brittany
4. Natalie & Nadiya
5. Rob & Kelley
6. James & Abba
7. Josh & Brent
8. Gary & Will
9. Trey & Lexi
10. Jaymes & James (they were about to arrive third but immediately realized they hadn't gotten the abacus lady clue yet & had to go back)- ROB & SHEILA ELIMINATED

Wow, I didn’t realize that the winner of the first leg has taken home the grand prize so many times. When I first heard about the $2 million dollar prize I thought it was just a lame publicity stunt, but knowing that I can see why it is a big deal. I watched the show with a few coworkers from DISH because it aired right after we got off, and it was funny how we all had our own teams that we ended up rooting for. I am going to save this episode on my Hopper’s huge hard drive so that I can go back and see how the final winner did. It would be too good if Amy & Daniel end up winning after they sabotaged themselves in the first leg. Whatever happens it will make this first one worth watching again.
