To tweet this alert: http://bmpr.ca/1f4KSNg It was an emotional ending for co-workers Susan Hayre and Sharnjit Gill in tonight’s episode of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA. The Vancouver-based correctional officers quickly found themselves in last place after losing their bearings during a mural road block in Santiago, Chile. They became the second team eliminated at the Pit Stop at one of the best views of the city, beautiful Cerro San Cristobal. “This was the most amazing experience ever,” said Susan. “Today was just a day that we will take back home and never forget.” “I just hope we made our kids proud,” added Sharnjit. “I want our kids to look at this and say ‘yep, that’s my mom’ and ‘yep, that’s my aunt – and they did it.’” **Media Note** To download additional artwork for THE AMAZING RACE CANADA please visit BellMediaPR.ca 144_K3A2475(mediasite) Susan and Sharnjit are the second team eliminated in Season 3 of CTV’s THE AMAZING RACE CANADA Episode 302 Recap From the Pit Start in Toronto, 11 teams travelled more than 8,600 km to Santiago, Chile in hopes of winning two Express Passes. Once in Chile, teams travelled to the Geoaventura Parque for their first Road Block, a paragliding challenge. Teams then made their way to the San Miguel borough, where they took selfies in front of five murals spread throughout the neighbourhood. For the second part of the challenge, teams helped local children paint a mural. Hamilton and Michaelia successfully found a dancing couple in the Bellavista neighbourhood, earning them two Express Passes. Then, at the Detour, teams chose between learning a difficult dance routine or memorizing and reciting verses of a Spanish poem. Hamilton and Michaelia decided to use their Express Pass early, skipping the Detour, and ultimately winning the leg. Host Jon Montgomery greeted them at the Pit Stop in Cerro San Cristobal with their leg prize – premium economy tickets from Air Canada to Delhi, India, plus six months of free gas from Petro Canada™.
