Phil Keoghan, host of Amazing Race, stands in the middle of the Everglades Swamp waiting the arrival of twelve teams about to commence the race of a lifetime. As Phil yells, "go," the teams race for cars to drive themselves to the Miami airport and fly to Mexico City, Mexico. In Mexico City, the teams are directed to find the statue of the Angel of Independence to obtain their next clue. This sends them to the Hotel de Cortes where they will board one of three charter buses in the morning. Having arrived at their destination, teams must choose one of two detours--either skydive from 10,000 feet or ride a donkey cart for seven miles. After successfully finishing the detour, teams make their way to the pit stop. Written by
