"The Amazing Race" officially raised its flag of the 16th season on Sunday, February 14. The 11 teams began the race by taking a public transportation to the Los Angeles International airport. The first three teams to arrive got the privilege of taking the first flight which is one hour apart off the second one. Monique and Shawne, Jeff and Jordan and Dana and Adrian were early. Unfortunately the first flight was delayed and they all ended up on the same second flight.
They visited Santiago, Chile as the first stop. Taking a bus, teams had to travel 60 miles to the first clue box. Monique and Shawne, Jeff and Jordan, Brente and Caite, and Adrian and Dana were the first batch to depart followed by Carol and Brandy five minutes later and then the rest of the team.
The first challenge was a road block and it required a team member to walk on a cable hung 120 feet above the ground. Caite took the challenge and she finished easily. Dan and Brandy however, had difficulty in balancing themselves but it was Adrian who fell twice and gave up trying.
