Notes:
1: Anne-Marie & Tracy arrived in 8th place. However, for an unknown reason the team left the pitstop in 9th place.
2: Mo & Mos initially arrived 4th, but were issued a 30 minute penalty for being "marked for elimination" and not arriving 1st. As Mo & Mos were waiting out their penalty, Jeff & Luke, Sam & Renae, and Dave & Kelly checked in, dropping Mo & Mos to 7th.
3: Sam & Renae elected to use the Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock in Leg 3. Before using the Express Pass, Sam elected to perform the Roadblock and this is reflected in the total Roadblock count.
4: Mo & Mos elected to take the four-hour penalty for not completing the Roadblock in Leg 3. During their penalty time, Anne-Marie & Tracy, the only team trailing Mo & Mos at that point, also elected to take the four-hour penalty for not completing the Roadblock, but because Mo & Mos had began their penalty time earlier than Anne-Marie & Tracy, both teams were called to the check-in mat and Mo & Mos were checked in as 9th, with the remainder of the penalty time being issued at the start of Leg 4, and Anne-Marie & Tracy being eliminated without the penalty being issued.
5: During the train ride from Prague to Kraków, an unknown man entered Sam & Renae and Tyler & Nathan's sleeper car and took Tyler & Nathan's their Race-issued bumbag which held their money and passports. The next day, Tyler & Nathan discovered their bum bags in another car, with all of the money they had been issued for the competition stolen. No compensation was made for this event.
6: Sam & Renae and Anastasia & Chris arrived in 1st and 2nd, respectively, but both teams were penalized for quitting the Intersection task. Chris & Anastasia were given the full 4-hour penalty for having not completed anything, while Sam & Renae were given a 2-hour penalty for managing to complete part of the task. During this time Jeff and Luke and Tyler and Nathan checked in resulting in Sam & Renae's final placement for the Leg dropped to 3rd, while Chris & Anastasia finished 6th and were eliminated.
7: Dave & Kelly failed to reach the Masada Pitstop and after all other teams had checked in, Grant came out to their location and eliminated them.
8: Sam & Renae and Tyler & Nathan initially arrived 1st and 2nd, respectively, however both took unregistered taxis to the Roadblock and they each received a 20 minute penalty at the Pit Stop. This did not ultimately affect either of their final placements.
9: Because Sam & Renae finished 1st, their 30-minute "marked for elimination" penalty was nullified.
10: Jeff & Luke bought 2nd class tickets on the train to Galle, when the clue instructed them to purchase 3rd class tickets. For this, they incurred a 10 minute penalty upon leaving Galle Station.
