  Mauritius ,Africa 6/12
More sightings  ~
Izabela(posted at MetForums):

Izabela is vacationing in Mauritius ,Africa (June 12)
and captures a video of at least 2 of the teams performing a roadblock with crew in tow~
My husband and I witnessed a Roadblock on June 12 while we were holidaying in Mauritius.
..the couples started showing up between 10-11am - the first two were very close to each other.
The detour involved kayaking out into the ocean. Not sure what they did out there but they were gone for about 1/2 an hour on average.
From memory the first team to arrive was all female, the 2nd a guy and girl - all quite young. They completed the task in that order but the leading team got about 5 minutes in between them. 
We counted 5 teams in total.
The black female team were in the top five but unfortunately last. 
We saw the Asian guy but he was off on the side drinking water and cooling down so we cannot actually remember if we saw him with his partner.
The black woman who did the kayak was a bit overweight and I'd guess not the fittest - she nearly died after that one!
One final point - there were 6 kayaks on the beach - perhaps a FF meant someone avoided this task?
:update:
on another forum ,Izabela describes the teams a bit differently.
We counted 5 couples come and go within about an hour
..the couples we saw were a youngish all-girl team (winning), [Dustin/Kandice]
2nd was another young couple (a guy and girl), [Rob/Kim]
there was the token black couple, [Lyn/Karlyn]
an asian looking couple, and [Cho/Bro's]
a geeky looking couple.
The black woman who did the kayaking was absolutely exhausted after the kayak ride and fell on her butt after getting out of it.
I should clarify the above point. She really look p*ssed off and the pair of them weren't in much of a hurry - but we noticed that couples were held up for a couple of minutes and given water before running off to continue the race

more from Izabela posted at sucks

Here goes:
Team 1 : f/f as per video
Team 2: m/f as per video and looks like same as kuwait carpark to me
Team 3: m/m i am 80% sure it was same guy as "audition" tape
Team 4: m/f asian male and geeky female but not 100% sure as they were not sitting together and by geeky i mean she reminded me of lori in her stance/appearance and not playing up the the cameras as the first 3 teams. She sat on the sun bed under a tree and just waited quietly on spoke to the black female for a short time.
Team 5: f/f black - personally it looked like they did not want to be there in terms of all the other teams looking so competitive.

and more posted by Izabela @ sucks
Don't forget only the male is asian in that team and the female is what I call my token "Lori".
I would give them a good 20 mins after the 3rd team which was the young m/m team.
The young m/m team arrived 10-15 mins after the leading couples. This 3rd team seemed to catch up some time with this roadblock but still left 3rd.
-----------------------------
Izabela:Hi !
 
We got the pic before the filming as all the crew ran off to tape the teams coming in
We were at Merville Beach Hotel which is near Grand Baie (sp?) top part from memory
No the teams were too busy to talk to LOL
No we dont know where they went next all we heard was "pit stop" but could not make out where due to the helicopter noise above (which I think you can hear through the whole video).
 
Bye

I found this diving map that shows the approximate location of Merville in relation to Grand Baie. And this official map (pdf; 3.6 mb) shows the whole island in detail (use the zoom in your pdf reader); Grand Bassin looks like it's the dead end of the "tea trail" road through Grand Bois and Bois Cheri.

You gotta wonder about the fender bender. I'm sure they hit something, but there may have been some staging after the fact. Looking at it frame-by-frame, it looks like the cameraman used a rapid zoom and a sideways movement to make it look like the two collided. The first cap show the relatively undamaged bus, the second shows a curious bus rider.
The obvious question: how did the cameraman happen to be outside the car filming when the accident happened? It reminds me of the semi-staging of Mirna's little bender in Bariloche.

The Mauritians like to dress up their traffic circles. Here's one (kmz attached) shaped like a compass. The roundabout in the promo cap may be possible to find; half of GE Mauritius is high-res, half is fuzzy.

By spoilers, David/Mary should've been Yielded if the Paris sightings are true. Otherwise, something must be up.

No luck on the roundabouts so far... (São Paulo helipads?)

A vast majority of the roundabouts (especially the decorated ones) run in a string down the main highway though, from Grand Baie through Port Louis into the fuzzylands. My guess is that the one we're looking for is along the same highway, on the way to Plaisance Airport (southeast corner of the island).

I don't see anything on the less developed eastern flank... Too little traffic to warrant traffic circles, much less pretty yin-yang or rocket-shaped ones!

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

If you find the roundabout I'll tell what time it is!

I suspect it is a morning shot.  With that in mind, the red and white cars are headed North.

Pickles? :hallo3
 One reason why Mauritius is a pleasant place 2 live is that we r a multi-racial country and an Indian wedding in Mauritius is sure not something to miss as it gives the opportunity to explore various aspects of pure Mauritian life... firstly, there are those old women singing in Bhojpuri, all the pickle-making processes and the endless bickering about how things should be done.

More help YAY ! Hi ImANewUser  :waves:

Since the photo isn't captioned it's not very useful, but there's a matching viewpoint to Izabela in a Flickr set that includes Merville beach (source). On another topic...maybe the "insane food challenge" is in Mauritius, not Kuwait? ???
