Notes:
1: Zhong Hanliang & Jackie drove off from Luohu Stadium without their crew members, and were the 4th team to arrive at Hong Kong International Airport for the first of two flights to New York. They were given a penalty and made to wait, ultimately dropping them to the 8th team in line for the flights and leaving them to go on the second flight.
2: Zhong Hanliang & Jackie were the fourth team to arrive at the Pit Stop, but because they had broken traffic laws in driving to the Pit Stop they were given a 30-minute penalty. During this time, Chen Xiaochu & Zhen Yijian arrived at the Pit Stop for a 4th place finish, dropping Zhong Hanliang & Jackie to 5th when they were allowed to check in.
3: Chen Xiaochu & Zhen Yijian arrived in first place, but were given a 30-minute penalty because Chen Xiaochun had performed both of the Roadblocks on the Leg when they were instructed to alternate. No teams arrived during the 30-minute period, so they were allowed to check in for a 1st place finish.
4: Bai Jugang & Guan Xiaotong were also given a 30-minute penalty as Bai Jugang performed both of that leg's Roadblocks, but because they had arrived in last place, they were eliminated.
5: Zhang Tielin & Yueliang used their Express Pass to bypass the task at Eagle Films Studio on Leg 3.
6: Jin Dachuan & Liu Chang used their Express Pass to bypass the Detour after they were U-turned on Leg 3.
7: Chen Yiru & Zhou Weitong originally arrived in third. However, they moved more than 5 meters apart during the Detour, which was specifically prohibited by the rules, and received a 30-minute penalty. They fell to 5th.
8: Chen Yiru & Zhou Weitong' originally arrived in fifth. However, they took a transportation vehicle to the Pit Stop when the clue instructed them to walk. They had to return to the Burj al-Arab and then walk to the Pit Stop. This did not affect their placement.
9: Zhang Tielin & Yueliang initially arrived in 3rd. However, they received a 1-hour penalty for quitting the whitewater rafting challenge. They fell to 6th and were eliminated.
10: Jin Dachuan & Liu Chang, Chen Xiaochun & Zheng Yijian and Chen Yiru & Zhou Weitong quit the pottery challenge and each received a 15-minute penalty before they could continue.
11: Zhong Hanliang & Jackie used their Save that they had won in the previous leg to bring Bai Jugang & Guan Xiaotong back to the race.
12: Chen Xiaochun & Zheng Yijian chose not to complete the octopus-eating challenge and received a 1-hour penalty before being permitted to continue.
