The CBS reality competition television series The Amazing Race features eleven teams of two, who race around the world solving clues along the way. Throughout their journey, participants have to interact with locals, perform physical and mental challenges, and compete for public transportation options on a limited budget. For the season finale, the last three teams remaining in the competition faced their final challenge at UN Headquarters in New York, which involved matching greetings and salutations in the language of each country visited during the season with the flag of that country. The episode was seen by 9 million viewers in the United States alone.
