This leg's Detour was a choice between Russian Bride and Russian Snowplow. In Russian Bride, using Lada cars, teams took themselves to a Soviet-era apartment, fetched one Russian bride and brought her to the designated church, where her groom was waiting. Once the team had a picture taken with the couple, the groom handed the team their next clue. In Russian Snowplow, with their Lada cars, teams headed to Stadium Spartak, where each team member took turns driving a snowplow through a marked lane while directed by their partner. In this leg's Roadblock, one team member had to choose two Russian marathon runners who would help them warm up, before he or she stripped down to his or her underwear to run a 1.4-mile (2.3 km) course toward the Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theatre, where their partner, who was transported there separately, would join them in heading to the Pit Stop.
Christie and Jodi came in 7th (last) but it is a non elimination leg. They will leave last and have to perform a "speed bump" that only they have to do along with the other tasks all must do.
