Notes:

2: Rachel & Dave initially arrived 2nd, but were issued a 2-hour penalty for using up all of their allotted bottles at the Roadblock and not finishing the task. During this time, four teams checked in at the Pit Stop, dropping Rachel & Dave to 6th.


3: Bopper & Mark completed the Fast Forward task, but were too far behind the other teams and they still came in last and were eliminated.


4: Leg 12 had two Roadblocks and no Detour. The team member who sat out the first Roadblock was required to perform the second one.


5: Rachel & Dave initially arrived 1st at the finish line, but they had accidentally skipped the second roadblock of the leg and were told to turn back to complete it. This did not affect their placement with they were able to complete the roadblock and came back with a proper 1st place finish.
