Notes:
1: Vince & Sam originally arrived 5th but they did not pay the taxi driver. They were asked to pay the taxi first before they could be checked in.
2: In Leg 3, Pailin & Natalie incurred a four-hour penalty because Natalie failed to complete the Roadblock. However, the penalty was not assessed because they were already the last team to arrive and were eliminated.
3: In Leg 4, Niroo & Kapil incurred a four-hour penalty because Kapil failed to complete the Roadblock. However, the penalty was not assessed because they were already the last team to arrive and were eliminated.
4: In Leg 5, Mai & Oliver failed to complete the leg after having fallen too far behind the other teams during the leg's first task. Hours after all the teams had checked in, Mai & Oliver still had not completed neither the Roadblock nor the Detour. Allan came over to the area where they had spent the night to inform them of their elimination.
5: Ida & Tania arrived 2nd, but received a 30 minute penalty for being "marked for elimination" and not arriving first. Only A.D. & Fuzzie checked in before the penalty ended, thus Ida and Tania fell to 3rd.
6: Vince & Sam and A.D. & Fuzzie incurred a four-hour penalty because Sam and Fuzzie failed to complete the Roadblock respectively. Since neither team's placement was affected, it was not assessed on A.D. & Fuzzie and the four-hour penalty was assessed on Vince & Sam at the start of the final leg.
