Notes [1][2] [3] [4][5][6] [7] [5] [8]
Legend:
     The team finished in first place
     The team finished in last place and was eliminated from the race
     The team finished in last place in a non-elimination leg
     The team finished in last and were supposed to be eliminated, but were saved by the Salvage Pass or The Save
     The team that won The Amazing Race
     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
The team that used the second slot of the "Double U-Turn"
Recipient of a second U-Turn due to the "Double U-Turn" twist
ϵ The team used the Express Pass somewhere during the leg




Notes:
1: Justin & Diana chose to attempt the Fast Forward, but were turned away due to unsafe weather conditions.
2: Because Kelly & Shevonne completed the Detour after all the other teams had checked in, Phil came out to the Detour location to eliminate them.
3: Denise & James Earl initially arrived 5th, but received a 30-minute penalty due to Denise verbally helping James Earl at the Roadblock. Logan & Chris checked in during this time, dropping them to 6th
4: Tanner & Josh used their Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock on Leg 4. Josh revealed that he elected to perform the Roadblock; this is reflected in the total Roadblock count.[2]
5: Legs 4 and 6 had no mandatory rest period between legs, and all teams were ordered to continue racing. The teams who checked in last on these leg did not face a Speed Bump in the next leg.
6: Tiffany & Krista attempted to U-Turn Justin & Diana, who were ahead of them.
7: Denise & James Earl used their Express Pass to bypass the Detour on Leg 5.
8: Justin & Diana initially arrived 3rd, but received a 30-minute penalty for taking the Kowloon ferry to Macau when the clue stated that they must take the Hong Kong-Macau ferry, plus an additional 25-minutes to compensate for the shorter crossing time, for a total 55-minute penalty. This did not affect their placement.
