Notes:
1: Crystel & Mykey and Pamela & Vanessa were unable to complete either Detour choice at Star City due to rain and were simply given their next clue.
2: Marc & Kat used their Salvage Pass to enter the Bantay Bell Tower 30 minutes before it opened.
3: Anton & Armand and Boom & Cheng received a 14-minute penalty after breaking 14 jars in excess of the maximum allowed in the burnay jar transporting task; Pamela & Vanessa and Sheena & Gee, 20 minutes for 20 jars; Dani & Mish and Fausto & Dayal, 11 minutes for 11 jars.
4: Anton & Armand initially arrived 4th but received a 24-hour penalty for breaking the rules when Anton contacted a relative. All other teams checked in to the Pit Stop during this time, resulting in Anton & Armand being eliminated.
5: Fausto & Dayal initially arrived 6th but did not perform the additional task at the Maligcong Rice Terraces before heading to the Pit Stop. They were instructed to perform the additional task before they could be checked in. During this time, Dani & Mish and Ed & Angel checked in at the Pit Stop dropping them to 8th.
6: Pamela & Vanessa were unable to complete the last task of the leg on their first attempt. Already in last place, they were allowed to check-in immediately and were eliminated from the race.
7: Marc & Kat and Dani & Mish tied for votes and were both Yielded.
8: Marc & Kat used the Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock in Leg 5. Before using the Express Pass, Marc elected to perform the Roadblock, and this is reflected in the total Roadblock count.
9: Dani & Mish received a 20-minute penalty after Dani asked Dayal for the answers for the Roadblock. They immediately served this penalty after serving their Yield.
10: Dani & Mish received a 4-hour penalty for failing to complete the Roadblock within four allowable attempts.
11: Boom & Cheng and Marc & Kat received a 1-hour penalty for taking private vehicle instead of a jeepney from Holiday Inn Clark to the Mabalacat Bus Terminal as the clue had specified. They immediately served this penalty while transferring buses at the Araneta Center Bus Station.
12: Ed & Angel failed to complete the Route Info task at Red Labuyo Restaurant and elected to take a 2-hour penalty. They arrived at the Pit Stop last, but were notified that it was a non-elimination leg. The penalty they would have taken was instead applied to their starting time in Leg 8.
13: By the time Ed & Angel arrived at Luyang Beach, all teams had already checked in at the Pit Stop. Host Derek Ramsay came out to their location in order to inform them of their elimination without the 30-minute penalty for being "marked for elimination" being issued.
14: Boom & Cheng and Fausto & Dayal received a 40-minute penalty for booking business class tickets instead of economy. They immediately served this penalty upon arrival at Mactan–Cebu International Airport.
15: The Yield was an Anonymous Yield. Therefore, LJ & CJ did not have to reveal themselves when using it.
16: Sheena & Gee initially arrived 5th but were not allowed to immediately check-in because they did not come into an agreement with their taxi driver over their fare. The driver was then asked and accepted the terms and they were allowed to check them in. This did not affect their placement.
17: Marc & Kat initially arrived 2nd but received a 40-minute penalty for improperly completing the Lulubog Detour. During their penalty, LJ & CJ checked-in dropping them to 3rd.
18: Sheena & Gee initially arrived 3rd but were issued a 30-minute penalty for being "marked for elimination" and not arriving 1st. As Sheena & Gee were waiting out their penalty, LJ & CJ checked in, dropping Sheena & Gee to last place and eliminating them.
19: Fausto & Dayal received a 15-minute penalty for using one of the prohibited words during the task at Smart Puerto Princesa task, which they served immediately before continuing the task.
