     The team that crossed the Finish Line second
     The team that crossed the Finish Line third
The team used the Fast Forward pass
The team used the U-Turn
Recipient of the U-Turn





Notes:
1: The U-Turn in Leg 4 was a Blind U-Turn; Margie & Luke did not have to reveal themselves to the other teams as having used the U-Turn.
2: The unused Fast Forward in Leg 7 was unaired, making Season 14 the first season not to air a Fast Forward.
3: Mark & Michael initially arrived 1st, but were issued two 30-minute penalties: one for intentionally tampering with the bike pumps and putting them away at the 2 Miles Detour, and another for hiring a taxi to guide them through the task, which was explicitly prohibited in the clue. Two teams checked in during their penalty time, dropping Mark & Michael to 3rd.
4: Kisha & Jen initially arrived 3rd, but were not allowed to check in because they had left their travel documents and money at the location of the Roadblock; they were instructed to retrieve them before they could check in again. Tammy & Victor checked in while Kisha & Jen went back, dropping them to 4th; Mark & Michael also arrived during this time, but were unable to check in due to penalties accumulated during the Leg (see note 5).
5: Mark & Michael initially arrived 4th, but were issued two 2-hour penalties, both for "using personal belongings to settle a bill" (they had bartered personal items to pay two taxi fares). With just over 3 hours of the penalty time remaining, Kisha & Jen returned to check in 4th. Mark & Michael, in last place at that point, were allowed to check in immediately after Kisha & Jen; however, they were notified the Leg was non-elimination, and the remaining penalty would be accessed at the start of the next Leg.
6: Leg 10 was a double length Leg, with 2 Roadblocks and 2 Detours, shown over two episodes. The placements listed in the first column reflect the order teams arrived at the Leg's halfway point. The U-Turn appeared after the second Detour.
