1: Edwin & Monica had been marked for elimination. However, since they checked-in last, they were eliminated without the 30-minute penalty being issued.
2: Brett & Kinaryosih were unable to complete the Detour on Leg 3, since they arrived at the North Shore Rowing Club after business hours - they backed out of the Wall Detour. All remaining teams had checked in, so they were told to go straight to the Pit Stop, where they were eliminated.
3: Sophie & Aurelia were unable to complete both the Roadblock and Detour since they arrived at Okere Falls after closing down for the day. After all teams had checked in, Allan came to the location (Okere Falls) and eliminated them.
4: Leg 5 is a double-length leg with two Roadblocks and two Detours, shown over two episodes.
5: Terri & Henry used their Yield power on Marc & Rovilson who were ahead of them, thus the Yield had no effect.
6: For unknown reasons on the subsequent Leg, the starting placements of Paula & Natasha and Ann & Diane were switched, resulting in Paula & Natasha starting in 4th place and Ann & Diane starting in 5th.
7: Terri & Henry had been marked for elimination. However, since they checked-in last, they were eliminated without the 30-minute penalty being issued.
8: Adrian & Collin and Vanessa & Pamela initially arrived in 1st and 3rd, respectively, but they did not park their vehicles at the designated parking zones and entered through the wrong gates. They had to backtrack and correct those mistakes, but this did not ultimately affect either of the teams' placements.
9: Paula & Natasha had been marked for elimination. However, since they checked-in last, they were eliminated without the 30-minute penalty being issued.
