Notes:
1: John & Murray were subject to several placement changes on the 2nd leg.

  • They overslept and missed their departure time by 1 hour, departing in 5th place instead of 1st.
  • They used their Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock in Leg 2. Neither had opted to perform the Roadblock, so this is not counted in their total.
  • They initially arrived 1st, but could not be checked in as they didn't pay their tuk-tuk driver. By the time they paid it and returned to the mat, Emily & Jono arrived, dropping them to 2nd place.


2: Daniel & Ryan received a 30-minute time credit at the start of the Leg 3 for winning the Step Counter challenge in the previous leg.
3: Carla & Hereni used their Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock on Leg 4. Before using it, Carla elected to perform the Roadblock, and this is reflected in the total count.
4: Episode 5 ended with only John & Murray checking-in at the pit stop first.
5: At the Pit Stop of Leg 6, Tyson proposed to Sally, who accepted. Their relationship title was changed as a result.
6: Daniel & Ryan chose not to use their Salvage Pass to save John & Murray, who came in last, eliminating them.
7:Leg 8 featured two Roadblocks and no Detour. The team member who sat out the first Roadblock was required to perform the second one.
