    In Season 5, several challenges were edited out of the program since they did not affect team placement. The first was a nut finding Roadblock in the markets of Dubai during Leg 9; The clam-hunting task in the Philippines, presented as a normal challenge, was originally one of two Detour choices. The yellow Detour clue is visible in several Racers' hands, particularly Kim's, and the second Detour choice was never presented on-air. In the final leg in Canada, there was a task where the teams had to find a clothing store in Banff and acquire jacket and caps. There is also a Roadblock where they have to build a tepee. Both these tasks were edited out of airing due to time constraints. Photos of both tasks were found in the official website.

A tire blowout in Dallas on Colin and Christie's limousine was not shown. This mishap essentially prevented them from winning the race.
