Best Canadian Reality TV Moments Of 2014: 'Big Brother Canada,' 'The Amazing Race Canada' And More8. Cormac And Nicole Break Our Hearts
Oh, what a gruelling Roadblock! In an agonizing defeat, the mother-son team couldn't muster up the strength to beat the biathlon in Whitehorse. The challenge required the racer to ride a one-kilometre mountain bike loop before taking aim at five targets. If you missed a target, you had to complete another bike lap to earn five more pieces of ammo. Poor Nicole had to bike for 22 (!) kilometres just to finish the task. She surely knew the team was eliminated, but knowing her son Cormac was watching on, she brushed off the tears and kept going until she finished. Cormac knew their race was over too, but it didn't stop him from cheering on his mom. He was never frustrated, and remained her biggest cheerleader. Exhausted, the two finished the race together.6. Second Is The Best
For the second year in a row, the team that won "The Amazing Race Canada" only won where it counted, at the final leg. The Tims saved their victory for the end, as did Muskoka, Ont. bros Mickey and Pete. I'm sure there's some Canadian sportsmanship connection to be made here, but at least we got to have a pantsless dance-off at the finish line.
