For the seventh leg of the Amazing Race, the teams started off by flying to the Island of Mauritius. At the airport, a huge argument broke out when Dustin & Kandice helped Tyler & James get tickets ahead of Lyn & Karylyn. However, all the teams wound up on the same flight anyway and arrived in Mauritius at the same time.
Afer arriving in Mauritius, teams raced to Grand Baie. At Grand Baie, teams swam out to a boat to receive their clue. The clue directed the teams to drive to a post office in Case Noyale. On the way to the Case Noyale, Rob & Kimberly had car trouble and Dustin & Kandice had a minor car wreck. At the post office, teams received a detour choice between “Salt” and “Sea.” In “Salt,” teams had to search among three enormous piles of salt for a salt shaker. In “Sea,” teams had to travel by boat to an island and locate a sail and mast to use in sailing back.
The piles of salt detour proved to be especially challenging, and every team that started it gave up and switched detours. After completing the detour, teams raced to Chateua Bel Ombre, which was the pit stop for this leg of the race.
Dustin & Kandice arrived in first place, and they each won a motor scooter. James & Tyler arrived in second place, Rob & Kimberly arrived in third place, Erwin & Godwin arrived in fourth place, and Lyn & Karylyn arrived in fifth place. David & Mary arrived in last place, but it turned out to be a non-elimination leg. David & Mary were marked for elimination, and they have to arrive at the pit stop first on the next leg of the race or they will incur a thirty minute penalty.
