It’s lame they all took penalties.

But that’s a terrible challenge. Amazing race Canada needs to work on their race design. Whoever is in charge struggles hard on it.

I think ARC does a really good job of challenges, I've found them to be better than a lot of the US ones. Yes, this was a dud, but it can happen. For the most part thoguh, I find them to be more challenging, which is more entertaining.

The challenges this year, despite the clam digging debacle, have been better than the "we need a dance challenge every show" trash they pulled last year. I just hope they make the penalty more punitive in the future.

The only person i want to win is Thinesh. His crying whiny g/f should give her half to him if they win. and even then it would have been awesome for them to get booted holding the express pass in their hands.
You knew it was a none-elimination round when they had one of the most easiest challenges in race history.

"Rotate him 90 degrees straight." What?

  1. Dave & Irina (Win a trip to Frankfurt, Germany)
  2. Anthony & James
  3. Aarthy & Thinesh
  4. Sarah & Sam
  5. Lauren & Joanne
  6. Trish & Amy
  7. Meaghan & Marie

Moms losing a cooking challenge is inexcusable.

Did they seriously make them do an Ikea kid ball challenge?? hahaha

This show is toast. Didn't even leave the country once this year. I'm surprised the grand prize wasn't shaved from $250k to $25k.

I'm kind of amazed blondie could do math. I really thought that challenge would do them in, until they copied the answer, of course.

They are going to Quebec. That's like leaving the country.

Finally caught up. Not surprised that one of my teams lost. You can't keep lucking out of elimination all the time.

I found it amusing that not only was I surprised that Irina could do physics, so was Dave!

"I could not be prouder of this dude."

This week a tough leg in Quebec almost does in some of the previously stronger teams on the race. Aarthy & Thinesh seemingly got lost multiple times and still easily won the leg. Lauren & Joanne have their best finish so far.

Anthony & James get saved by what should be the final non-elimination leg of the race.
  1. Aarthy & Thinesh (Win a trip to Santiago, Chile)
  2. Lauren & Joanne
  3. Dave & Irina
  4. Sarah & Sam
  5. Anthony & James (non-elimination)
  6. Trish & Amy
  7. Meaghan & Marie
  8. Gilles & Sean
  9. Nicki & Aisha
  10. Jet & Dave
  • WhiteTiger: Lauren & Joanne / Trish & Amy

  • csnarpy: Trish & Amy / Sarah & Sam
  • bigtmac19: Nicki & Aisha / Jet & Dave

Next week, the teams return to Toronto to visit the ROM ...



... then it's off to Thunder Bay.

Don’t really like the memorization challenges. Seems cheap and lacks imagination.

I think having the different languages was creative.

No Clif bars to enjoy on the train? /s

The product placement has been driving me nuts this season.
