It was a tight leg from start to finish, but it was Alain and Audrey who would find themselves eliminated from The Race in picturesque Prince Edward Island after floundering at the mussels Detour. They arrived at the Detour in fourth place but struggled to outperform the other teams before being overtaken by Ryan and Rob, who also had to complete a Speed Bump which involved finding moonshine bottles buried in a steaming pile of horse manure. The recently engaged couple arrived last at the Pit Stop where they were greeted by an Anne of Green Gables lookalike in the stunning seaside village of Rustico. 

“I’m sad this experience is over,” said Audrey. “But we’re gonna start our life together and that’s absolutely wonderful.” “I’m so glad I don’t have to hide that ring anymore,” added Alain, who proposed on the mat in Paris at the end of the eighth leg of The Race.

Episode 10 Recap

From the start of the leg in Montreal, The Race continued to Prince Edward Island as the five remaining teams landed in Charlottetown. Teams first made their way to Red Shores Racetrack, where one team member assumed the role of horse and the other as driver, and completed two laps around the track. From there, they made their way to Province House and faced the difficult task of identifying 10 of the Fathers of Confederation in the Roadblock. After a short fill up at a local Petro-Canada gas station, Racers made their way to the Detour and had to choose to either strip a bin full of mussels from the “socks” on which they are cultivated, or calculate the weight of a colossal quantity of potatoes. Once completed, teams made their way to the Pit Stop adjacent to the Farmer’s Bank in the idyllic seaside community of Rustico.

For the first time this season, it was a footrace to the mat to claim first place. Sukhi and Jinder outran the Olympians to win their second leg of the season, earning the siblings two round trip tickets from Air Canada to any of their Canadian destinations, plus $5,000 on their Scotiabank Gold American Express Card.
