The Amazing Race Canada: This is how you give 'er - Toronto Star

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Edmonton — who with wife Karen fell into last place after going to the wrong Fairmont hotel — went across using his arms. “Welcome to the gun show, Canada,” he said, flexing his biceps.Deb, of Grand Forks, B.C., got so dizzy and nauseous after falling and spinning in mid-air that only a pep talk from son Aaron could get her back on the rope. But the delay put them in last place at the Detour — a choice between “pedal,” bike polo, or “paddle,” a dragon boat course — along with Megan and Courtney from St. John’s, N.L.Megan and Courtney had chosen the “paddle” Detour because, as Newfoundlanders, “boats are in our blood.” But steering a dragon boat? Not so much, so they switched to “pedal” midway through and found riding a bike while hitting a ball at the same time equally challenging.Nonetheless they finished the challenge just slightly ahead of Aaron and Deb, and won the cab and foot race to the pit stop, in the Elizabethan Hedge Maze at VanDusen Botanical Garden.Aaron and Deb had vowed to “bury the competition,” but alas, they were dead last — pun intended — and were eliminated.The entertainingly enthusiastic Kenneth and Ryan — whose full-throated query to the dragon boat racers, “Which boat wants to be the python?” gave the episode its title — won the leg and a trip to Barcelona. Korey and Ivana of Toronto arrived third but got second place because of Andrea and Ebonie’s penalty. Adam and Andrea were No. 3; Sam and Paul No. 4; Zed and Shabbir No. 5; Karen and Bert No. 6; Andrea and Ebonie No. 7; Dan and Riya No. 8; Megan and Courtney No. 9.Next week the teams are off to Fort McMurray, Alberta, to tackle challenges that involve shooting and firefighting. And there are three Express Passes up for grabs. Let the scheming and manoeuvring begin. It airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. on CTV.
