The Save, introduced in The Amazing Race 25, allows a team to rescue themselves from elimination if they arrive last at the Pit Stop on an elimination leg.

In its initial appearance, the Save was awarded to the team who arrived first at the Pit Stop on the first leg and it had to be used before Leg 9.[1]

The Save went unaired for The Amazing Race 26, as no team chose to do both sides of the Detour for leg 3 in order to obtain it.[2]

If a team attempts to use the Save on a Non-Elimination Leg, it will be returned to them, and the team will still be penalized with a Speed Bump on the next leg as usual.


  • The Amazing Race 25: Misti & Jim were awarded The Save for arriving at the Pit Stop first in Saint Thomas, United States Virgin Islands.
    • In Leg 4, Misti & Jim arrived last and initially used The Save, but it was however returned to them by Phil after the leg was a Non-Elimination Leg. Misti & Jim were able to reach Leg 9 with The Save in hand, becoming the first team to have The Save without it being used.


  • So far, the only team to have possession of The Save is Misti & Jim.
  • As of 2017, the Save has only appeared on the US version.
