Notes:
1: Kelly & Kate and Anthony & Brandon initially arrived in 3rd and 4th place respectively, but each received a 4-hour penalty for failing to complete the first Roadblock. Kelly & Kate dropped to 9th place, while Anthony & Brandon dropped to last place and were eliminated.
2: Due to an unsafe change in the weather, Lowell, Amy, Yvette, and Anne were not permitted to complete the first Roadblock and had to wait an equivalent amount of time that it would have taken to complete it before receiving the next clue. Anne was not shown performing the Roadblock, but said on Twitter that she had one attempt.[2]
3: Joel & Ashley, Jillian & Emmett, Rita & Yvette, and Anne & Tanya initially arrived in 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th place respectively, but each received a 30-minute penalty for taking a water taxi to the Detour decision point when the clue stated they must take the ferry. Joel & Ashley's placement remained unchanged, but each of the other 3 teams dropped 1 place.
4: Stéphane & Antoine failed to complete the Roadblock. Already in last place, they were eliminated without the penalty being applied.
5: Frankie & Amy used their Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock in Leg 6. Before doing so, Amy chose to perform the Roadblock. This is reflected in the total count.
6: Steph & Kristen had not used their Express Pass by the deadline at the end of the 7th leg and were required to hand it to Jon at the Pit Stop.
