Notes:
1: Five of the 10 teams arrived at the Pit Stop after an applied a four-hour penalty for failing to complete the Roadblock (only Alan, Claire, Yani, Jess and Natasha). The initial placements for all teams are as follows (the five italicized teams were not given the penalty):

1st: Alan & Wendy; 2nd: Hilda & Ivan; 3rd: Richard & Richard; 4th: Claire & Michelle; 5th: Dimple & Sunaina; 6th: Sahil & Manas; 7th: Nadine & Yani; 8th: Lani & Jess; 9th: Hussein & Natasha; 10th: Khairie & Ethan

2: Nadine & Yani were further assessed their 30 minute "marked for elimination" penalty for not checking in 1st. This pushed Lani & Jess and Hussein & Natasha up to 8th and 9th respectively while they themselves fell to last place, which resulted in their elimination.
3: Sahil & Manas initially arrived 7th did not pay their tuk-tuk fare correctly. They had to settle the fare before they were allowed to check-in. During that time, Lani & Jess checked in at 7th, while Sahil & Manas dropped to 8th.
4: Alan & Wendy had been "marked for elimination". However, since they checked-in last, they were eliminated without being issued the 30-minute penalty.
5: Khairie & Ethan departed the Pit Stop last at the start of Leg 6, as they were flown by helicopter directly to Legazpi Airport as part of the prize won on the previous leg.
6:In the Roadblock of Legs 7 and 11, Hussein found the tasks too difficult to complete and he and Natasha took a 4-hour penalty at the locations of those tasks.
7:Leg 7 featured a Virtual Pit Stop, therefore creating a double-length leg with two Detours and two Roadblocks shown over two episodes.
8: Dimple & Sunaina fell behind the other teams during Leg 8. Whilst still completing the Detour, all the other teams had checked-in at the Pit Stop; Allan asked them to come to the pit-stop for their elimination. In a post-race interview, they revealed that they did complete the detour prior to their elimination.
