The Detour for this leg of the race is a choice between Bull Chase Or Dance Craze. In Bull Chase, teams had to find La Macarena Stadium, don a matador's costume, enter the bullring with raging bulls inside, and run to the center for their next clue.

When they had 20 people signed-up for attending the AIDS Campaign, they'll receive their next clue.
