Roadblock: (Jamaica) This leg's Roadblock was located at Frenchman's Cove, Jamaica. One member of each team was required to participate in the limbo It was a fairly easy task --- each rung of the limbo stick told teams when they could depart the next morning. Team members had eight chances to gain the earliest time out, which was 8:15 A.M. Amber, Kelly and Joyce completed this Roadblock for their respective teams.
Roadblock: (Fort Lauderdale) For this final Roadblock, which was located at the Castillo de San Felipe del Morro Fort in San Juan, Porta Rico, one team member had to jump off a 30-foot bridge and once in the water they had to swim a length of 90 yards to retrieve their next clue.
Amber, Ron and Uchenna completed this last Roadblock for their respective teams.
Rob and Amber were the only team in the seventh season of The Amazing Race to not check in at a Pit Stop or the Finish Line in last place.
Detour (Rose Hall Great House):
No team chose "Pony Up", where they would've ridden a horse into the ocean, then gotten off and grabbed its tail, allowing the horse to maneuver through a buoy course.
All teams chose "Tee It Up", where they put on golf clothes and hit golf balls until one of them hit a green 140 yards away.
Detour (Grant's Level):
No team chose "Raft It", where they would've steered a traditional bamboo raft eight miles downstream.
All teams chose "Build It", where they had to build a bamboo raft, then take it across a river to retrieve their next clue.
Uchenna: (after having all his possessions taken away) The two things that haven't been taken away from us are our hearts and our minds.
Joyce: (when Rob and Amber got stopped by police) Rob is having a fit!
Rob and Amber's Taxi Driver: Don't worry about Tyson. I'll take care of you people, mon! You'll be the first one's there.
Ron: Kelly's worrying about everyone else. She should be worrying about us a little more. (in a high-pitched voice, imitating Kelly) Oh my gosh, can you see what Rob and Amber are doing!
Ron: We find that Jamaican people are too laid back. No worries, mon!
Amber: Right now, we're going to school. To learn what, I don't know.
Kelly: (when dancing with the locals) Ron, are you sure you don't wanna join in?
Ron: It's OK. I'll let the girls do it!
Uchenna: London to Jamaica - can't get much better than that!
Ron: When I was in the military, I was dealing with soldiers and we didn't have these emotions. But that's part of dealing with Kelly and the emotional being she is!
Kelly: Throughout this race, I've been showing Ron that I'm not just a pageant queen or a ballerina. If he doesn't realize what a quality girl I am, he's missing out!
Kelly: Let's go to Jamaica, mon!
Rob: It's gonna be the pageant queen and the army guy versus the Survivor couple versus the black couple in Jamaica. Yeah, mon!
Uchenna: (singing) How cold we are, how cold we are...
Joyce: Shut up honey, we're not cold!
Patrick: Please be Uchenna and Joyce. Please be Uchenna and Joyce!
Rob: We finished second, but I wouldn't change a thing. I've got Amber.
Uchenna: In vitro, here we come, baby! And if that doesn't work, adoption! Here we come.
Phil: Uchenna and Joyce, after 5 continents, 25 cities and more than 40,000 miles, you are the official winners.
Uchenna: We're on fumes here. We're workin' on fumes.
Ron: Rob's got fear in his eyes and he's had it for a couple of days.
Ron: It's kind of like a needle in a haystack of needles.
Uchenna: We got a flat tire.
Joyce: Lord have mercy.
Ron: I don't want to be married right now. I'm not ready to make that committment.
Rob: In Survivor, we came out on top. There's no reason why we shouldn't win again. Just write the check.
Rob: Which of you two teams is gonna finish second?
Joyce: You are!
Since the introduction of Non-Elimination Leg penalties, Uchenna & Joyce become the first team to win having been penalized on a previous-leg.
Rob is the only contestant to finish in second place in 2 separate reality shows.
The first leg ended approximately 43 minutes into the episode and the second began approximately 49 minutes in.
The first time since non-elimination penalties were added that the penultimate leg is a non-elimination leg.
Unlike all previous season finales, the eliminated teams standing at the finish line are not shown in order of elimination by the camera.
When describing the final Pit Stop, Phil said the last team to check in "may be eliminated." Of course, had they been, viewers would have ended up watching a two-team final leg, something unprecedented in the show's history. So this was just a last-ditch effort to create suspense.
Two hour finale, aired from 9-11 P.M.
