Izabela : witnessed a Roadblock on June 12 at the Merville Beach Hotel,Grand Baie.
1) Barbies complete the Roadblock first.
2) Rob and Kim second,5 minutes after the Barbies.
3) Tyler & James arrived 10-15 mins after the leading couples.This 3rd team seemed to catch up some time with this roadblock but still left 3rd.
We counted 5 couples come and go within about an hour
4)The Chos, 20 mins after the 3rd team.
5 or 6)The Lyns were in the top five but last.
5 or 6)Mary (geeky lori?)& David unsure?
One final point - there were 6 kayaks on the beach - perhaps a FF meant someone avoided this task? ( some confusion here )
Barbies arrive first
Rob & Kim arrive second
Production holds the 2 leading teams up.
Dustin helps Kandice and gets yelled at to get out of the water by Rob & the Crew.
Kim paddles off second
:bar:Detours ?? unknown
Rob & Kim
Lyns with David & Mary ( ?)
Models jumping in Tyler & James going up? Rob waiting ?
introflash, the Isla Mauritia ( probably shot by production at Merville Beach..used for the Detour. )
*A spontaneous alliance forms between two teams. Is it real or are they just using each other to get ahead.
*Impromptu alliances form and splinter as favors are exchanged.
*Meanwhile, two teams create an alliance but wonder if the bond is strong enough to bring them to the end.
Barbies" their with us. ( Tyler/James )
Bama's" NO! you can't DO THAT!
Barbies "its not in our best interest to help Tyler & James but I was really kind of like " the Bama girls to me today !?"
*Car accidents plague the teams as they race through harsh terrain.
*One team crash's their car into a bus.
*While racing through the streets of Mauritius, one team has a major scare when they crash their car into a bus.
Barbies" OMG! are you OK?"
*engine problems plague the teams as they race through harsh terrain.
*Another team suffers car trouble.Will these misfortunes cost someone the race?
*Another team has trouble getting their car into gear and must watch as all the other teams pass by them.
Rob"@#$#%# can't get the car in gear..then you do it! ,I'm done!"
*Could the race to the Pit Stop among friends mean the demise of another alliance?
*Who will be the next team eliminated?
Mary" I'd sacrafice a million $$ for the friends I made.."
*engine problems plague the teams as they race through harsh terrain

Slowhatch: 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.
