For the Amazing Race All Stars finale, the teams had to fly to
Honolulu, Hawaii. Charla & Mirna managed to find a connecting
flight that arrived earlier than the flight the other two teams were
on. In Honolulu, the teams took cabs to Kamaka Air Hanger to catch a
helicopter flight to Lanai.
In Lanai, teams drove jeeps to Kaumalapau Harbor, where they encountered a detour choice between “Under” and “Over.” In “Under,” teams swam under the rocks into an underwater cave. In “Over,” teams paddled on a paddleboard to a buoy. After completing the detour, teams drove to Shipwreck Beach. At the beach, teams had to kayak out to a buoy to retrieve a clue.
The clue directed the teams to their final destination city of San Francisco. All three teams traveled on the same flight to Oakland. In Oakland, teams caught taxis to San Francisco, where they had to find the Old Mint. At the Old Mint, teams had to answer questions the same way as their partner in order to get a four digit code to open a vault containing a clue. Only Eric & Danielle managed to open the vault before the ten minute time limit, which gave them a head start on the other teams.
After opening the vault, teams received a clue directing them to the Botanical Garden, which was the end destination of Amazing Race All Stars. Eric & Danielle arrived in first place and won the Amazing Race All Stars and the one million dollar prize. Dustin & Kandice arrived in second place, and Charla & Mirna arrived in third place.
Eric & Danielle were given a Sprint phone in order to call their family to tell them that they had won the Amazing Race All Stars. Eric’s best friend and Amazing Race 9 partner Jeremy answered the phone. Upon hearing the news, Jeremy said "Yeah, yeah, I’m rich, beeyatch." Jeremy also said "Dude, I’m going to give you some spankings when you get home, that’s awesome."
