  • This was Wynona McCall's first Roadblock has ever performed on a single Roadblock as Chuck McCall had already done five in the first five legs due to the Roadblock limit count that was introduced in The Amazing Race 6, and this twist had been modified since The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business. Wynona had also performed in the second Roadblock on the first leg.
