The Devil Made Me Do It is the penultimate episode of The Amazing Race 7.

Synopsis

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?[2]

Choice A: Brains
Teams must take the London Underground and solve a series of three riddles. First, teams had to find the left luggage at London Waterloo station for their first item, where they would receive a bag and magnifying glass. Second, they had to find the three naked men statue in Hammersmith tube station and find a tobacco and pipe. Third, they had to find and make their way to the Baker Street tube station and find the statue outside to find the third item, a 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 find the detective nearby, who would hand them their next clue in exchange for the items.

Rob & Amber and Ron & Kelly chose this task.

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.

"Who's got the drive to win?"
