Notes:
1: Hamilton & Michaelia used their Express Pass to bypass the Detour on Leg 2.
2: Nic & Sabrina initially arrived in 1st place, but received a 2-hour time penalty for quitting the Route Information Task. 7 teams checked in during this time, dropping them to 8th place.
3: Nic & Sabrina arrived last at the Face Off, but because 2 other teams (see note 4) took time penalties, there were no other teams for them to compete against, so they were not penalized. They were, however, given an unspecified time penalty at the "Ride It" Detour as it was deemed unsafe to perform after dark.
4: Nic & Sabrina were originally the last team to arrive, but due to Neil & Kristin and Simi & Ope each incurring a 4-hour penalty for failing to complete the Face Off, they officially checked in at 6th place.
5: Brent & Sean used their Express Pass to bypass the Route Marker task on Leg 7.
6: Dujean & Leilani and Neil & Kristin each incurred a 2-hour penalty for failing to complete the Route Marker task. Dujean & Leilani arrived in 3rd place but their placement remained unchanged, while Neil & Kristin dropped from 4th place to last place and were eliminated.
7: Simi & Ope were originally the last team to arrive, but due to 2 teams incurring a time penalty, they officially checked in at 6th place.
8: Dujean & Leilani were unable to complete the Detour due to an injury sustained by Leilani at the Roadblock and elected to quit the Detour, despite being U-Turned. However, because they were already in last place at the time, they were eliminated without the penalty being applied.
9: Simi & Ope were the last team at the Face Off and received an unspecified time penalty

Trivia

Canada

  • First season to visit the continent of South America.
  • First season to feature non-consecutive Pit Stops in the same province.
  • First season to feature a Blind U-Turn where one team can remain anonymously (without putting up their own team sticker) and may force another team to complete the other option of the Detour that was not originally picked.
  • First introduction of the Face Off in which two teams must compete against each other in a challenge.
    • The team that wins receives their next clue, while the team that loses must wait for another opponent and start over. Ultimately, the last team remaining at the challenge must serve a pre-determined time penalty before they can continue racing.
