Default Amazing Race Canada, Season 7 -- Premieres July 2

The current season of the mothership show isn't even done airing yet and CTV is already gearing up for the return of TAR:Canada.

As they do every year, they're introducing the teams in batches. So far, the first four are up: https://www.ctv.ca/The-Amazing-Race-Canada


I assume there will be 10 teams like they usually do for the Canadian edition. Sign up below if you'd like to take part in this year's pool.

I failed at TAR, but maybe I'll be luckier in Canada. I'll have a go at this.

I'll be sure to watch today's Marilyn Denis Show to find out! While gouging my eyes out.


Actually, crap, I have a dentist appointment at 9, and she always has it on that show!

2 more spots.


7 teams announced so far, you can see their intro videos here: https://www.ctv.ca/The-Amazing-Race-Canada


A lot of Ontario-based teams. Even the team that lives in Vancouver is originally from Toronto.

Only one Calgarian so far (although he lives in Toronto currently). 100m sprinter and Olympic hopeful, Sam Effah. I guess that makes up for them having 4 of 10 teams from Alberta last season.

On the Marilyn show they introduced a few teams just before the commercials...and after the segment on head lice and hook worms, which was really enjoyable to watch. Being in that dentist chair I kinda felt like that scene out of Clockwork Orange. Anyway, the first team with the blondes looked decent, not sold on the other 2 they introduced, though with my head cranked over and dentist noises I didn't really pick up much.


I'm sure you are all much more informed after that. Hope you PVR'd it!

Once we get our 10th person to sign up, I'll randomize the draft order and we can get started.

  5. getbak
  6. GoinAllTheWay
  7. Weitz

Standard draft rules apply. Pick your preferred team from the remaining undrafted teams. Once you've picked, send a PM to the next person on the list to let them know it's their turn. When we get to the bottom of the list, we will go up the list in reverse order to pick a second team.


WhiteTiger is on the clock.
