What A Gaucho You Are! is the fourth episode of The Amazing Race 7.


Several teams plot to make up for a time penalty in the previous leg.

Several teams scramble to recover from a four-hour penalty to catch up with the front-running teams. Meanwhile, one Racer is thrown from a very stubborn horse while trying to complete a Roadblock and another Racer is driven to tears as an unsupportive teammate provokes them from the sidelines.[2]

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to go through a traditional gaucho challenge. The team member must ride a horse consisting of barrel racing and then using a stick, spearing a ring at the end of the course in less than 40 seconds. Once successful, teams would receive their next clue.

Choice A: Shipwreck
Teams must find, within a seven square mile area, an abandoned ship with only a 30-year-old picture as a reference to receive their next clue.
