The Amazing Race Season 18 – Episode 10

Episode 10

Search

Episode 10 took place in Switzerland, in the shadow of the Matterhorn.  Teams were given the choice to Search or Rescue, and were flown by helicopter to the location of their challenge.  In Search, teams had to locate a mannequin buried under the snow using some type of beacon detector.  The device beeped and displayed numbers as the teams got closer to the correct location.  Then, they had to use shovels to free the mannequin from underneath about 4 feet of snow.

I really like the idea of a puzzle that makes you find something that is buried.  I suppose it’s the romantic idea of buried treasure.  I think I’d rather re-create this kind of puzzle on a beach with metal detectors!
