Notes:
1: Kelly & Christy were not shown in the broadcast when they arrived at the clue box, which was at Pelourinho, but we did see them complete the Soft Way Down Detour while they were currently in 5th place.
2: Mark & Bill initially arrived 8th, but were issued a 30-minute penalty for taking a taxi instead of going on foot to Bumpy Ride the Detour. During this time, Kelly & Christy – the only team trailing them at that point – were able to check in and Mark & Bill were eliminated before the 30 minutes elapsed.
3: Nick & Starr initially arrived 5th at the Pit Stop, but were issued a 30-minute penalty for speeding. This did not affect their placement and was not in the broadcast.
4: Terence & Sarah initially arrived 3rd, but were issued a 30-minute penalty for speeding and was issued at the start of the next leg. They thus departed 5th in the next leg.
5: Andrew & Dan initially arrived 4th, but took a taxi to the Pit Stop instead of going on foot as stated on the clue. Instead of waiting out a 30-minute penalty, Phil told them to go back to the end of the Detour and walk back to the Pit Stop. This did not affect their placement.
6: Ken & Tina initially arrived 3rd but had missed the clue directing them to the Pit Stop, having arrived there by chance while searching for the clue. They were required to retrieve the missed clue at the end of the Detour and return to the Pit Stop. This did not affect their placement.
7: Toni & Dallas were initially denied their clue at the Detour starting point for taking the Metro instead of a taxi and the lady with a Shetland Pony required them to go back to the end of the Roadblock and return to the Detour starting point via taxi. Later, when all the other teams had checked in at the Pit Stop, Phil came to the Rizhskaya Station and eliminated them while they were still performing the Ride the Lines Detour.
