OMG Yahoo – ‘Amazing Race Canada’ premieres
After Hal dove into the Okanagan Lake for the team’s next clue, Joanne bravely took on their next challenge — walking out onto a 12-inch wide platform emerging from a trestle bridge. Always game, before jumping off the platform, she exclaimed, “Keep fit and have fun!”
After driving to Quails’ Gate Winery in the Okanagan Valley, the teams raced to the finish line, with Kristen and Darren in first place, followed by Holly and Brett. Hal and Joanne were in third place (despite the fact that the latter reportedly had trouble opening a car door) and Ontario-born best friends Jet and Dave rounded out the top four.
The first to be eliminated? Ontario twins Treena and Tennille, who early on in the show failed to follow directions to each remove a clue from their terrarium.
The “Amazing Race Canada” frontrunners are clearly Kristen and Darren, though we should not discount brothers Jody and Cory, who currently sit in seventh place. Despite Jody losing both his legs in Afghanistan, they had no problem taking a Sea-doo out on Lake Okanagan — Cory simply gave his brother a piggyback. Jody also seemed to walk with his prosthetic legs across the precarious 12-inch platform with ease. Talk about amazing!
