Notes:
1: Legs 1 and 10 featured two Roadblocks and no Detour. The team member who sat out the first Roadblock was required to perform the second one.
2: Tim & Tim and Treena & Tennille each received a 30-minute penalty for only taking 1 of 2 clues from the terrariums at the Butterfly Conservatory, when the clue instructed them to take both. Tim & Tim dropped from 5th to 6th place, while Treena & Tennille dropped from 8th to last place and were eliminated.
3: Vanessa & Celina used their Express Pass to bypass the Detour
4: Vanessa & Celina arrived at the Pit Stop in 4th place, but could not be checked in as their backpacks were not dropped within sight. Their placement remained unchanged after going to back to correct this.
5: Holly & Brett and Hal & Joanne each received a 2-hour penalty for failing to complete the Route Marker task. Holly & Brett dropped from 3rd to 5th place, while Hal & Joanne were already in last place and were eliminated.
6: Holly & Brett and Jody & Cory arrived on the Mat at exactly the same time. As it was too close to call, Jon checked them both in at a tie for 2nd place.
