Notes [1] [2] [3] [4]
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
ϵ The team used the Express Pass somewhere during the leg
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

Notes:
1: Sheri & Cole initially arrived 6th, but were issued a penalty because Cole grabbed four mochilas of two matching pairs. The clue stated only three pairs of mochilas. However, this did not affect their placement, thus it was unaired.
2: Leg 6 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.
3: Brodie & Kurt used their Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock on Leg 8. Before using the Express Pass, Brodie chose to perform the Roadblock; this is reflected in the total Roadblock count.
4: Burnie & Ashley knowingly U-Turned Tyler & Korey, who had already passed the U-Turn point and were therefore unaffected by it.
