Cops, and one of the most surprising winners in the entire series. They did not start out well, in part thanks to terrible luck with taxi drivers in various countries, and would have weak finishes throughout the entire first half of the season. They would improve greatly once they hit North America, but still went into the finale as huge underdogs to Paul & Steve and Michelle & Jo. They would pull ahead of the other two teams at the opinion matching task, and pulled of one of the biggest upsets in Race history. One of the most likable winners in the series, and one of the teams who could probably put the money to the best use.

Cousins, the first Aboriginal team to be cast on the show. While they initially started out strong, the pair made several mistakes over the first two legs that put them at the back of the pack, such as struggling so badly with the rafting task in the first leg that they dropped from 1st place to 9th in the process. During the second leg, they burned through all their money by the time they reached the Bollywood task, and despite leaving said task in 4th, they found themselves without the funds to get them to the Pit Stop. After failing to secure a ride from Ross & Tarryn, they sold a pair of shoes and a shirt to a local mother and son. Though this initially got them to the Pit Stop in 7th place, they incurred a 30-minute penalty for selling their possessions. All the other teams checked in, and with only three minutes left in their penalty, they were eliminated in 11th place.

Brother/sister team from Sydney, Australia, Grace seemed to have her own, entitled, view of the world, forcing Joseph to deal with her princess personality on top of the normal stresses of the race. Grace had no problems letting her opinions of the other teams be known, particularly to their faces, and became a rather abrasive opponent (though in a very entertaining way for the viewer). The would make the mistake of jumping into a van-style cab in Beijing, the increased costs of such a vehicle costing them all their money and putting them out of the Race in 4th place.

* PickyEater: Despite being the first team to reach the balut task in leg 1, they were the last to finish due to neither being able to stomach the chicken embryos. They took so long that the first charter bus to Daraga had already left by the time they finished, and almost missed the final charter bus.

Hippie Hairdressers, they are one of the few teams in franchise history to share a boss/employee relationship. The two "Earth Mothers" intended to win the race with their calm persona's and their "Aura Spray", which they used in stressful situations. They started out fairly strong, with two top 4 finishes in the first two legs, which saw them starting the third leg in 3rd place, with a 30 minute lead over several of the other teams. Despite the leg not having an equalizer, Sue hit a wall at the stair counting Roadblock, allowing all the trailing teams to catch up and pass them, and they finished the race in 10th place.

** During Leg 8, the teams were required to either find a man in a fishing boat or catch a fish, subject to a time limit. There was no rule that stated the fishing could only be done if you hadn't found the boat, so Shane decides to go fishing and ends up being the only person to complete the roadblock by catching the fish instead of asking random boats.

* ThisMeansWar: During the ox cart task in leg 3, Paul, who was standing by his cart wearing his backpack, inadvertently (or not, depending on who you ask) knocked several of Kym & Donna's pots off their cart with said pack. This resulted in Kym & Donna, who were already frustrated with Paul's attitude, saying that they were the last team you wanted to cross, as they had long memories, and set their sights on Paul.
