The Devil Made Me Do It is the penultimate episode of The Amazing Race 7.
Some teams reserve seats on flights while others take a risk with unconfirmed tickets for an earlier connection.
Nearing the last legs of the Race, some teams take a chance by purchasing airline tickets without confirmed seats on a connection, while other teams have seats on a direct flight which arrives later. Forced to beg for money and personal provisions, one Racer shares a stranger's tube of lipstick. One team uses the Yield to hold back another team. Will this delay affect their standing in the Race?
The order of departure from the Rumeli Hisari are as follows:
Teams must make their way to the London Eye. On the Ferris wheel, teams must spot a flagged building, the Marriott Hotel County Hall, to find their next clue.
Choice A: Brains
Teams must take London Underground and solve a series of three riddles. First, teams had to find the left luggage in Waterloo station for their first item (receiving bag and magnifying glass). Second, they had to find the three naked men statue in Hammersmith tube station and find the second item (tobacco and pipe). Third, they had to find and make their way to the Baker Street tube station and find the statue outside to receive the third item (deerstalker hat). Once finished, teams took the mystery items that would eventually lead the teams to 221B Baker Street, the home of Sherlock Holmes Museum and to find the detective nearby, who would hand them their next clue in exchange for the items.
Choice B: Brawn
Teams must make their way to Battersea Park where teams have to transport five 160 pounds boats from a lake to the storage area 500 yards away. When completed, teams would be handed their next clue.
Teams must make their way to the Millennium Dome to find their next clue.
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would drive a Double Decker bus through a marked course without hitting any cones. If they hit a cone, the bus driver would reset the bus back to the beginning of the course and had to start again. At the end of the course, the team member had to park the bus in the designated parking area to receive their next clue.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
First Place • Eliminated • Last placer in Non-Elimination Leg • Saved from elimination by the Salvage Pass or The Save • Season winner • Season 2nd place • Season 3rd place • ► Used the Fast Forward• > Used the Yield • < Recipient of the Yield
