The Amazing Race Wiki

I Wonder If This Is Going to Make My Fingers Pickle is the seventh episode of The Amazing Race 10.


Tempers flare at the airport when one team books tickets for an allied team further back in the ticket line, causing major hostility.

While racing through the streets of Mauritius, one team has a major scare when they crash their car into a bus. Another team has trouble getting their car into gear and must watch as all the other teams pass by them. Meanwhile, two teams create an alliance but wonder if the bond is strong enough to bring them to the end. Could the race to the Pit Stop among friends mean the demise of another alliance?[2]


Route Markers[]

The order of departure from Al-Sadiq Water Towers are as follows:

  1. David & Mary (12:37 am)
  2. Dustin & Kandice (3:40 am)
  3. Rob & Kimberly (3:53 am)
  4. Lyn & Karlyn (4:10 am)
  5. Erwin & Godwin (4:18 am)
  6. Tyler & James (4:55 am)

Teams must fly to Plaine Magnien, Mauritius. Upon arrival, teams must take a marked car, which contains their next clue, a mini-replica of the Isla Mauritia boat, with the instruction "swim to me". Teams must figure out that the ship is located in Grand-Baie and swim out to it to receive their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to the Merville Beach Hotel, where they would find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must climb into a kayak and paddle out into the ocean. No further details about the task are known, as the task was unaired.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Kandice was seen in promotional material for the episode performing the Roadblock. In addition, bystander footage shows Kandice and Kimberly starting the task for their respective teams.[3] Rob also mentions in the final leg that he could have done that leg's Roadblock, implying that he only performed 6 by that point. In the same leg, James mentions that he has done more Roadblocks than Tyler up to that point. Though neither Lyn nor Karlyn were seen or mentioned doing this task, by the final leg, Karlyn completes 7 Roadblocks, meaning that Lyn had done this task by default. According to their daughter, Hannah, Mary likely completed the task as it involved open sea. Meanwhile, it is likely Erwin completed the task as Godwin did all the Roadblocks after this to catch-up to his brother's total.

Teams must drive themselves to Case Noyale and find the post office, where they would receive their next clue.

Choice A: Salt
Teams must drive themselves to Les Salines de Petite Rivière Noire and search through three gigantic piles of salt for a saltshaker with their next clue inside. However, not every saltshaker found in the piles had a clue inside of it.

None of the teams chose this task.

Choice B: Sea
Teams must make their way to a nearby dock, choose a boat captain, and then travel by motorboat to Île aux Benitiers 2.5 miles away. Once there, they must search the island using a provided treasure map to find the boat's sail. After finding it, they must carry it back to the boat, attach it, and sail back to receive their next clue.

All of the teams chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Château Bel-Ombre to check in.

For coming in first, Dustin & Kandice each won a motor-scooter.

For coming in last place, David & Mary are "marked for elimination". If they do not arrive first in the next leg, they would be assessed a 30-minute penalty.
