Rob & Amber are the third team to win three consecutive legs during the race. The first was Colin & Christie in the fifth season and the second was BJ & Tyler in the ninth.
This is the third leg that Rob and Amber have spent in Chile, with the others being the previous leg and the second leg of the seventh season. Rob and Amber have won all three of these legs in Chile.
David and Mary have been last in four legs -- three times in the tenth season and once this season. This is the most that a team has placed last.
Including their previous race, Rob and Amber currently hold the record for most legs won total with seven.
Thermacare The Amazing Race All-Stars Moment of Relief: In the seventh season, Rob and Amber received help from a sympathetic airline employee. He helped them to a board a flight after the boarding was already announced as being closed.
Detour: In this episode, teams faced a Detour choice of either Vertical Limit or River Wild. In Vertical Limit, both team members would have had to have walked 200 yards and then completed a forty-foot rock climb, each ultimately receiving half of a clue. However, all teams completed River Wild, which required them to first travel back two miles and then complete a two-and-half mile river-rafting course through Category Three and Four rapids.
Rob and Amber are the first team in the history of the show to win the first three legs of the race in a row. They are also the third team overall to win three legs in a row, the first being Colin and Christie from the fifth season and the second being B.J. and Tyler from the ninth season.
Phil varied from his normal opening patter, asking "Who will be eliminated tonight?" With the exception of the first season, this phrasing is normally only used for an extremely obvious non-elimination leg, such as the first or last legs of a season.
Balance Sheet: Rob and Amber remained in first. Uchenna and Joyce rose from fifth to second. Eric and Danielle moved up one spot, from fourth to third. Dustin and Kandice rose two positions to fourth. Oswald and Danny dropped from second to fifth. Teri and Ian rose from seventh to sixth. Joe and Bill plummeted from third to seventh. Charla and Mirna remained in eighth, hanging on to avoid elimination. David and Mary remained in ninth and this time were eliminated from the race.
Dustin and Kandice arrived at the Pit Stop in fourth, but were told by Phil that they could not be checked in, as they had not yet received all clues. They had completed the River Wild task for the Detour without receiving the clue presenting the Detour choice. They retraced their steps and retrieved the clue, losing time but not placement, as they were checked in fourth.
The teams finished in the following order:
#1. Rob and Amber (Prize: One Full Home Gym Each)
#2. Uchenna and Joyce
#3. Eric and Danielle
#4. Dustin and Kandice
#5. Oswald and Danny
#6. Teri and Ian
#7. Joe and Bill
#8. Charla and Mirna
#9. David and Mary (ELIMINATED)
Joe:(regarding the Roadblock) I'm the Fish Whisperer!
Oswald: (at the Pit Stop) Oswald and Danny, you're team...
Danny: (after completing the Roadblock) I'm sweaty and I'm delirious.
Oswald: (to Danny, during the Roadblock) Be the fish! Become the fish!
Oswald: (seeing midget at Pit Stop) Charla's gonna be in love.
Mirna: (to helping local) Welcome to Mirna and Charla's world. It's a scary one.
Rob: Eric and Danielle against Amber and me—any day of the week we're the odds-on favorite.
Bill: Rob is not Jesus.
Mary: It was just awesome to be able to do it once, let alone twice. I mean, wow. I'm a true West Virginian, now. I got to white-water raft.
Mirna: I am sorry I am wearing a bathing suit. It is very weird, I know.
Mary: Please don't let me be eliminated.
Mary: Charla's boots was in my tent. I'd love to meet 'em and beat 'em.
Phil: (to Rob and Amber) Three wins in a row. You guys need to slow down a little bit, I think.
Rob: I'd give them all back as long as we're first on the thirteenth leg.
Rob: That's my girl. You smoked 'em.
Amber: I don't know if I can ever eat flounder again in my life, man.

Eric: Dan! Use your boobs! You gotta use your boobs!
Ian: You're being rude.
Mirna: I took lessons from the king of rude --- you.
Teri: (reading initial clue) You have $37 for this leg of the race. (in interview segment) Dustin and Kandice are strong racers.
Ian: They're funny, they wiggle around the world. That's cool with me.
Danielle: (in interview segment) I think Eric definitely forgets that this race is about me as much as it is about him.
Amber: (in interview segment) I don't care if the other racers like us or don't like us.
Rob: I could care less.

The CBS official website for The Amazing Race mentions that two teams attempt the 40-foot climb part of the Detour and switch tasks in this leg. This is not shown in what was broadcast on television.
At the flounder-wrangling roadblock, Joe is referred to as the "fish whisperer," playing off the name of Nicholas Evans' 1995 novel/Robert Redford's 1998 film The Horse Whisperer.
