TORONTO (July 16, 2019) – In tonight’s episode of CTV’s THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, grandfather-grandson duo Gilles and Sean, from Sunderland, Ont., were eliminated after multiple setbacks stalled them into last place. Seven teams now remain on THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, returning with an all-new episode Tuesday, July 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, and streaming anytime on CTV.ca and the CTV app.
Tonight’s episode saw racers head to The Source to receive their next clue, which directed them to Edmonton’s High Level Bridge Streetcar. There, they encountered THE AMAZING RACE CANADA’s first-ever double-blind One Way, an all-new race device that allowed teams to choose another team’s Detour without revealing their identity.
Teams derailed by the One Way both had to “Celebrate”, while other teams either joined or chose to “Elevate”. In “Celebrate”, teams headed to the Royal Alberta Museum where they had to learn lyrics and choreography and then perform with the Kokopelli Choir to the choirmaster’s satisfaction. In “Elevate”, teams had to piece together two almost identical photo puzzles of the Edmonton skyline on opposite levels of the 100 Street Funicular. Racers then searched throughout the Old Strathcona Antique Mall for a Jon Montgomery bobblehead. After finding the miniature figure, teams travelled to Kurimoto Japanese Garden where one teammate had to replicate an Ikebana – a Japanese floral arrangement.
Racers then trekked to the Aga Khan Garden to meet Jon at this season’s third Pit Stop. Dave and Irina were first to arrive at the mat, winning a trip for two to Casablanca, Morocco. Unable to make up the time lost at the Detour, Gilles and Sean arrived last and were eliminated from the Race.
On the next episode of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, “I Love Geologists” (Tuesday, July 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, and streaming anytime on CTV.ca and the CTV app), teams fly to Yellowknife, where a diamond Road Block has racers under pressure, before things take a chilling turn.
The seven remaining teams competing for the Season 7 title of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA champions are:
- Aarthy and Thinesh – dating couple from Vancouver
- Anthony and James – married couple from Edmonton
- Lauren and Joanne – sisters from Regina
- Trish and Amy – friends from Etobicoke, Ont.
- Sarah and Sam – teammates living in Toronto
- Dave and Irina – married couple from Montréal
- Meaghan and Marie – twin sisters from Halifax
