Uchenna and Joyce win The Amazing Race 7; Rob loses for a fourth time.
After 10 episodes, The Amazing Race 7 came to an end, and Rob and Amber lost. If you’re keeping score on your Rob Mariano Reality TV Show Failures chart, this is Rob’s fourth loss on a CBS reality show contest (including the All-Star Viewer’s Choice) and Amber’s third. Besides Rob and Amber’s loss, the episode also included Uchenna and Joyce’s win, confirming a betting-related spoiler; the couple came from a distant third place to easily win the entire race. Ron and Kelly and their dysfunctional relationship pulled up the rear; they misread street signs in San Juan and thus missed an earlier flight to Miami, where the race concluded.
+ also: Phil tells JustJared.com that an all-star season “is potentially in the works.”
