1: Nicole & Travis initially arrived first at the Pit Stop, but received a 30-minute penalty for travelling by taxi to the Pit Stop, when the clue instructed them to travel by foot. During their penalty, Tim & Marie checked-in first, dropping them to second.
2: Leo & Jamal initially arrived first at the Pit Stop. However, Phil refused to check them in after they failed to pay their taxi driver properly. By the time they paid it and returned to the mat, Chester & Ephraim had already checked-in the Pit Stop at first place, dropping Leo & Jamal to second.
3: Due to trouble with connecting flights and delays, Chester & Ephraim had fallen so far behind that all other teams had already checked into the Pit Stop by the time they finally arrived in Lisbon. Before they could go for their first clue, Phil greeted them personally at the airport to eliminate them.
4: Leg 4 had no mandatory rest period between legs, and all teams were ordered to continue racing. The team who checked in last on this leg did not face a Speed Bump in the next leg.
5: Tim & Marie used their Express Pass to bypass the Detour.
6: Nicole & Travis used their Express Pass to bypass the Detour.
7: Leo & Jamal departed the Pit Start two minutes later than their schedule due to oversleep.
- Second time visits to Portugal (after Season 3) and Poland (after All-Stars).
- First time that two teams used an Express Pass.
- Second season to feature an Indian American team (after Season 10).
- Fifth season where all the final three teams are co-ed teams (after Seasons 5, 6, 7, & 19).
- This season's visit to Portugal made the country have the largest gap (at the time of airing in 2013) between one country's visit in a season and its previous season's visit, which was in Season 5 (20 seasons), but since has been broken three times.
- It was eventually beaten by Namibia, which had its first visit in Season 2, and its second visit in Season 26 (24 seasons).
