Once the race has begun, contestant info and pictures will be treasured!!
 
Until then, to protect the racers from possible elimination, no racer ID's can be posted.

How about a Kristen?

I know we don't have any photos of their dreadlock team's faces, but I thought their hair at least was somewhat similar and I figured I'd throw their names out there :lol:

Maybe Darren Trapp and Kristen Idiens, dating from Fairmount Hot Springs in BC? Just some spec, we'd need some more evidence but I'm just seeing what you all think!

Here's their Audition:

Jody and Cory Mitic are brothers. Jody Mitic is actually a war veteran who lost his legs in Afghanistan. He is a double amputee!

I'm having a hard time matching the tattoo... I can't exactly see it but both Jody and the guy in the photo at the airport have a large tattoo on their left arm... And I obviously can't tell if he has his prosthetics on or not, lol.

This ID comes from mandk!
 
Actress VANESSA MORGAN may be on TAR Canada because her last tweet was on April 28th and she looks very similar to one of the girls on the PINK PANTS team. I hope this helps  :)

What do y'all think?

It looks like Vanessa Morgan to me! Her web site says she has two older siblings, but doesn't say anything else about them. Could she be teamed with an older sister? I've looked and haven't found any further information about any sisters or brothers.

Update:
I found a couple of pictures of Vanessa with her sister Celina (possibly Celina Mziray). They do look like they could be the Pink Pants team, at least in some of our pictures. In others, they don't look like them to me. I didn't post the pictures of Vanessa and her sister here due to possible copyright issues, but you can see them at:

Also, for what it's worth, Vanessa's dog, @CutenessChanel, hasn't been tweeting lately either.

We really need to recruit some 10-14 year olds to research things like this. :iok

Published on May 15, 2013

The Amazing Race Canada is filming in Québec City today! On the Plains of Abraham. I followed a team from St-Roch to the Plains. There was a LaCrosse task that they had to complete there.

I don't know which teams this is from the timeline, but I can tell you this, both guys are from Québec or have family in the province, because you can hear their voices in the end, saying merci, merci pour tout, french for thank you for everything, and they don't have a accent!

So we have at least one team from Quebec!

Also of note:


Something looks familiar...isn't Jody Mitic one of the brothers of Team Mitic?  Maybe he and Vanessa know each other from the race.  They both disappeared from Twitter after April 28 and resumed on May 25.

Nice catch, bc922! I didn't see those replies for some reason when I checked Vanessa's twitter feed yesterday. The other two people appear to be her fans as they were tweeting during the race. Vanessa seems to have added a number of people lately (but I can't recall just who was there a week or two back). I checked some of them and didn't find anyone that looked like a racer that wasn't tweeting during the race.

Friends are developing loose lips:

just angella ‏@knitta_please74 27 May
My friend just wrapped filming on Amazing Race Canada. Bit disappointed it's national, not global.

Jeff Sloychuk ‏@albertajeff 8h
Well my buddy is back from the Amazing Race Canada but he won't tell me how they did!! I think that means he lost, right?


Just angella is from Hamilton, Ontario. Jeff Sloychuk lists Leduc, Alberta as his home, which is a suburb of Edmonton. His tweets suggest he may have moved to the Yukon though. He could be a friend of one of the Cowboys if I had to guess.

I dug around through both of their lists of followers and who they are following (both very long for both of them) and couldn't find anyone that could have been on the race. I'm throwing it out here in case anyone else wants to try and figure it out.

“@lssbears: Remember this guy??? Best of luck Mr Martyr in the Amazing Race Canada!! #OnceABearAlwaysABear pic.twitter.com/4gUUAAgSDt”


@lssbears is the twitter account for the Langstaff Secondary School Athletic Department in Richmond Hill, Ontario (I think). The muscle bound guy in the picture doesn't look like anybody I remember seeing in the teams for TAR Canada so this may be nothing. Maybe some of you from Canada will know who Mr. Martyr is. I couldn't figure out anything definite from that name.

CTV Announces First Two Teams Competing on THE AMAZING RACE CANADA

TORONTO (June 24, 2013)

Canadians auditioned by the thousands, but only nine teams were chosen to compete in the race of a lifetime. Now, the wait is over. Today, CTV unveiled the first two teams competing on THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, this summer’s most-anticipated television series. Hosted by Olympic Champion Jon Montgomery (@jrmonty12), the first team announced to embark on the thrilling, all-Canadian race around the country is Jody, a Canadian Forces veteran from Ottawa, and his dedicated brother Cory, from Edmonton. Joining them are Kristen and Darren, a couple of avid outdoor enthusiasts in top physical condition from British Columbia, who share a passion for positive thinking and a love of all living things. In total, nine teams will compete for the historic half a million dollar grand prize, with three more teams announced tomorrow (June 25), two on Wednesday (June 26), and the final two pairings on Thursday (June 27). Set to anchor CTV’s Summer 2013 schedule, THE AMAZING RACE CANADA airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning July 15 on CTV (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times).

“Canadians will be blown away by how these teams interact with their partners and with each other as they race across the country,” said Phil King, President, CTV Programming and Sports. “These nine teams are the best of the best, and viewers can expect an incredible amount of excitement and drama.”


“With thousands and thousands of applications for THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, we had the near impossible task of picking nine teams to run the race,” said John Brunton, Chairman and CEO Insight Productions. “We had so many top notch groups to choose from we could have filled multiple seasons. Canadians showed us once again why this is the best country in the world, and our cast just magnifies our diversity and spirit.”

Below are the first two teams announced to compete in THE AMAZING RACE CANADA. Click on the team names for detailed bios and photography.

TEAM BIO
Jody was a sniper for the Canadian forces, and while on duty in Afghanistan in 2007, he stepped on a land mine and lost both his legs below the knee. After an extraordinary recovery, Jody was running 5 km charity runs in a little over a year on his new prosthetic feet. “It’s obviously going to be a challenge,” Jody says of his prosthetics, “but we’re going to have to overcome that with determination.”
 
Cory was by Jody’s side during his recovery and then relocated to Alberta to take a job five years ago. The distance has been hard on the brothers and they’re looking forward to re-establishing their strong bond. “We’ll rely on each other to get the job done,” says Cory. “Our interaction will probably be laced with a lot of bleeps for the viewers at home, and comic relief, also quite a bit of fireworks,” says Jody.
 
Within a few months of returning home, Jody was reunited with one of the medics who evacuated him from Afghanistan. The two are now common law partners of five years and have two beautiful girls together. With the birth of his first daughter, Jody vowed to always strive to be a better person, someone his daughter would look up to and be proud to call Dad.
 
Motto: “They are the enemy and we shall destroy them.”
 
How will they plan to win The Race: Focus, hard work, calculated risk.
 
Number one roadblock as team: “Being patient and bringing the intensity down a little bit from red line.”

As avid outdoor enthusiasts, Kristen and Darren keep in top physical condition, complemented by their well rounded and worldly intelligence. Kristen knew they’d be a real threat on THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, as she explains that “Every obstacle, every experience good and bad, have helped us learn new lessons.” “Darren is pretty detail oriented,” says Kristen, while he describes her as “The most selfless person...she is up for anything. She is incredibly motivated and ACTUALLY can do anything she sets her mind to!”
 
Kristen was an MVP basketball player in her scholastic years and can make her own clothes, while Darren is extremely resourceful on little to no money.
 
Motto: “We believe strongly in equity for all living creatures and creating our own realities through positive thinking and sharing love everywhere we go.”
 
How will they plan to win The Race: “Using our fitness level, logic, resourcefulness, and maintaining a positive attitude towards each challenge.”
 
Number one roadblock as team: “Remembering to use our differences to our advantage instead of getting frustrated with each other.”

'Body Break' duo to compete on 'Amazing Race Canada'

The Canadian Press
Published Tuesday, June 25, 2013 10:56PM EDT

TORONTO -- For 25 years, Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod have been a relentlessly cheerful presence in Canadian homes through their brief "Body Break" fitness vignettes -- chipper little missives designed to get Canucks sweating with a smile.

Well, now that the couple has signed up to be contestants on the intense cross-country competition "The Amazing Race Canada," things might change. Viewers will now likely see Johnson and McLeod when they're exhausted. And when they're stressed. And perhaps even when they're -- gasp -- fighting?

"It's funny with social media because there's been so many people tweeting and putting on Facebook and that sort of thing: 'Are Hal and Jo going to fight? I don't want to see them fight!"' said Johnson with a laugh in a recent interview prior to taping the reality series, seated next to a smiling McLeod. "You know, I think the biggest thing is we respect one another first."

"We don't do that in our real life," agreed McLeod.

"So what you see in 'Body Break' is certainly a part of us. It's not all of us," added Johnson. "You're going to see us tired. You're going to see us in different situations that we've never done before. But I don't perceive that we would fly off the handle -- because I just never do that."

Indeed, the couple is speaking several weeks back just prior to taping of the race-around-the-country competition (the show premieres July 15 on CTV). In the adjacent room, the pairs that Johnson and McLeod will face off against are scattered about, sitting quietly under strict instructions not to speak to each other. It's a tense scene.

But Johnson and McLeod are all smiles. They said taking this challenge on seemed like fortuitous timing, given that they're celebrating a quarter-century of "Body Break." Similarly, Johnson and McLeod have spent their lives trying to inspire Canadians to activity -- and now they see an opportunity to prove what's possible at an, ahem, advanced age. Johnson is 57 and McLeod 54, and they have something to prove.

"There are some teams in this race that their cumulative age does not add up to mine," laughed Johnson, who played college baseball for the University of Colorado. "Really, it's about showing that it doesn't matter how old you are. You can go out and do anything."

Listening to Johnson and McLeod strategize, it's clear they intend to win. Neither speaks French, so they talk about cozying up to a team that is bilingual. To counteract the perceived advantage in age, they'll be careful to sleep and eat right while hoping that others aren't doing the same. Johnson also points out that they've been plastering their clothes and gear with the "Body Break" logo, to increase the odds that they're recognized and -- they hope -- helped along by starstruck fans in a way that other teams wouldn't be.

Even their age, viewed through the duo's perennially positive filter, seems like a good thing.

"We know it really is a mind game, so it's a matter of being patient," Johnson said. "If I have to put together a piece of Ikea furniture at home, I know I will never do it the first time. So when I mess it up, I go, 'Oh.' I do it in reverse. I take it all apart and put it back together. And I never get mad. I expect to screw up.

"Whereas some of the younger competitors might be impatient, and then start yelling."

The show's executive producer, John Brunton, marvels that the presence of the pair represents "spectacular casting," calling them "special (and) unique."

Still, he shrugs off the idea that their celebrity could give them a leg up in the competition, where bewildered competitors often have to rely upon the kindness of strangers for a nudge in the right direction.

"I think it can work to your advantage and disadvantage sometimes and some people might want to send them on a wild goose chase because they might get a kick out of it, and others might want to help them," said the Insight Productions CEO.

"Certainly, the other teams have made it perfectly clear they want to kick their ass. And Hal and Joanne aren't exactly spring chickens either. They're getting on a little bit. They're not exactly senior citizens, but they're inching their way there. And we have some young bucks that think they can run faster. On the flip side, Hal and Joanne, they're in good shape, those two. I wouldn't want to arm-wrestle Joanne. She'd kick my ass."

Among the young bucks are the duo of 28-year-old David Schram and 32-year-old police officer Jet Black, a two-time North American Physique champion. But, growing up as they did in the late '80s-early '90s, they had only love for the famous "Body Break" pair.

"They're a team that I would love to work with -- they seem nice," Black said, smiling. "Are they a team that's going to want to work with us? I doubt it. They have an image to uphold. We're going to weigh them down.... It's a sad reality."

There's another youngster firmly in Johnson and McLeod's corner: their 14-year-old daughter.

Mostly, McLeod says their teen's biggest concern is "being embarrassed that we get eliminated in the first (leg)." Johnson says she just wants them to win her a car -- "red, she specified."

But she mostly wants them to keep their heads and work together, whether curious viewers at home want the same or not.

"(She) gave us a checklist for the race and she put it in our bags before we left," McLeod said. "It was five points. And one of them was to stay calm.

"And that's why," she added, holding up her hand, "I've put a piece of tape on my finger to remind me to stay calm."

Fun Fact:  Not one team member's hometown is a city that was visited on this seasons route. I wonder if this was a conscious decision on the part of TPTB or just a lucky coincidence.

Provinces Represented: 4.5 teams from Ontario
                                      1.5 teams from Alberta
                                       1 Team from Manitoba
                                       1 Team from Quebec
                                       1 Team from British Columbia

I know Ontario has the greatest population, but not 1 team from all the Maritime provinces?
