TORONTO (September 3, 2019) – In tonight’s episode of CTV’s THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, married couple Dave and Irina from Montréal, were eliminated after apples spoiled their chance of securing a spot in the finale. The final three teams are in a race to the finish line on the Season 7 finale of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, airing Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, and then streaming anytime on CTV.ca and the CTV app.
This week, teams raced through Nova Scotia and put their taste buds to the test at Wolfville’s Tangled Garden, where they searched for seven different herbs then sampled various jams and jellies to identify and match which herbs they were derived from. Next, teams drove along winding country roads to an artisanal apple and hockey puck stand, where they received their next clue.
Racers then chose between two Detours: “Puck” or “Apples”. Teams who picked “Puck” made their way to the Andrew H. McCain Arena in the Acadia Athletics Complex, where they hit the ice for a game of sledge hockey, which challenged teams to navigate the ice, pass, shoot, and score a goal in one minute or less. Teams who chose “Apples” headed to Noggins Corner Farm Market to sort 12 different, but nearly identical, apple varieties. Then, teams drove their All-New 2019 Chevrolet Silverado to Taproot Farms, where they used the truck's next-generation rear-view camera system to reverse up to five clues that spelled different stanzas of the lyrics to “Farewell to Nova Scotia”. Once they jotted each stanza down, they then had to place them in the correct order. Racers then hitched their trucks to trailers filled with cases of beer and drove to The Church Brewing Company, where they performed the song on-stage in front of a local audience.
Finally, teams raced to Luckett Vineyards to meet host Jon Montgomery at the Pit Stop. Anthony and James, from Edmonton, were first to arrive at the mat, earning a spot in the Season 7 finale and a trip for two to Singapore. After falling behind at the “Apples” Detour, Dave and Irina arrived last and were ultimately eliminated.
On the Season 7 finale of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, “I Had ONE Job” (Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, then streaming anytime on CTV.ca and the CTV app), the final three teams race to the finish line in Muskoka, Ont., and are pushed to the limit in hopes of winning two All-New 2019 Chevrolet Blazers, a once-in-a-lifetime trip for two around the world, a $250,000 cash prize, and the coveted Season 7 title of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA Champions.
*Programming Note: Due to the 2019 Manitoba general election, THE AMAZING RACE CANADA Season 7 finale will be available for streaming online at CTV.ca, beginning at 8 p.m. CT in Manitoba.
