  2. ^ Robyn and Marty failed to complete the lanterns Route Info challenge and so were assessed a 2 hour penalty. All other teams had completed the course while Robyn and Marty were still racing, and so were eliminated when they reached the Pit Stop.
  3. ^ Phoenix and Peter elected to use the Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock in Leg 5
  4. ^ Stella and Alan were unable to complete the other half of the Detour due to being U-Turned, and so were assessed a 4 hour penalty. All other teams checked in at the point, dropping them to last place and eliminating them.
