Your Result:
Cormac Foster and Nicole Foster - The Academics

Your strategy is to think first and act second. You make logical, well though out decisions that you rarely regret because even when things don't work out as planned, you can still stand behind the intelligence of your choices. Your brain? It's a real winner!

I guess I'm rooting for them now!

Mickey Henry and Pete Schmalz - The Chill Bros

"Keep calm and carry on, dude" is your motto. Why get worked up over things? Panicking never helped anyone. Besides, life is about the journey, right? Although winning would be pretty rad.

Did not expect that at all  :funny:

Tonight at 7 (Eastern), Friday July 11, eTalk is devoting their entire show to a preview of Season 2. If there is anything worth noting, I will let you know. I can't promise, but once it is put on their site, I may grab screencaps of anything "spoilery".

'Amazing Race Canada' to air mid-season 'After the Race' special next week

TORONTO -- The teams eliminated in the first half of "The Amazing Race Canada" will get another chance in the spotlight next week.
The sixth episode of the race 'round-the-world will be followed by "After the Race," a mid-season special held at CTV headquarters.
In front of a live studio audience, TSN's James Duthie will interview the teams thus far eliminated and look back at the first half of the epic reality race.
So far, the three teams eliminated have been friends Shahla Kara and Nabeela Barday, Halifax parents Jen and Shawn King and Toronto married couple Laura Takahashi and Jackie Skinner.
The fifth episode of "The Amazing Race Canada" was to air Tuesday night, with a visit to the Yukon in the plans.
In a statement, Duthie called himself a "die-hard" fan of the show and vowed to ask the eliminated pairs: "What the heck were you thinking?"

Amazing Race marketing campaign up for national prize

A marketing campaign showcasing Canada’s North is a finalist for a national award.

The Pan North Territorial Consortium’s campaign around The Amazing Race Canada is one of just four finalists in the category of Marketing Campaign of the Year at the Canadian Tourism Awards.

The campaign was conceived to ensure that the inaugural season of The Amazing Race Canada came North in 2013.

The result was massive exposure for all three territories. Episodes showcased the scenery and adventure, and contestants raved about the experience.

The race returned to the Yukon this season with teams taking part in activities such as mushing, mountain biking and paddling the Yukon River.

Muskoka hippies Mickey Henry and Pete Schmalz went on to win the show, beating out gold-medal Olympic hockey players Natalie Spooner and Meaghan Mikkelson.

The territories and their agency worked closely with Bell Media and Insight Productions in the planning of the episodes.

The integrated marketing campaign included promotional spots featuring host Jon Montgomery, snips in program that let viewers know just how close the North was to their gateway city, and updates to the Canada’s North website to reflect the look and feel of The Amazing Race Canada.

Social media was also used extensively to connect with viewers and to entice them North to explore the three territories.

“We take every chance we get to showcase Canada’s Arctic, a region so many Canadians haven’t been to but are curious about,” said Colleen Dupuis, CEO of Nunavut Tourism and chair of the Pan Territorial Marketing Consortium.

“This opportunity was one that was not to be missed.”

“We were excited to work with our partners in Nunavut and Yukon on this great opportunity,” added Cathie Bolstad, executive director of N.W.T. Tourism.

“Marketing Canada’s North together, we maximized the exposure of all three territories and we were able to showcase this spectacular region of Canada to all Canadians.”

“We were thrilled that the rest of Canada got to see some of this special part of the country,” stated Denny Kobayashi, senior manager of global marketing, Travel Yukon.

“This nomination from our industry confirms what we already felt – the campaign got it right.”

Tourism Yukon spent $420,000 to draw the Amazing Race Canada back for a second straight season, with the lion’s share of the budget going towards 50 commercial spots promoting the territory.

The Canadian Tourism Awards are presented annually by the Tourism Industry Association of Canada to recognize success, leadership and innovation in Canada’s tourism industry, and to reward organizations that have gone above and beyond to offer travelers superior tourism experiences in Canada.

The winner of the Fairmont Hotel and Resorts Marketing Campaign of the Year award will be announced during the Tourism Congress, Nov. 25 and 26, in Ottawa

Here is a link to a podcast episode from CacheUP New Brunswick. They were the ones who designed and set up the geocaching detour option on Episode 11. Great behind the scenes info on challenge design and how far ahead things get planned out. Also includes talk of the actual race day and what happened.

When you play the file, they start with local geocaching news. Discussion of The Amazing Race Canada begins at 13:45

THE AMAZING RACE CANADA & BIG BROTHER CANADA REACH #1

Insight Productions produced two of the biggest ratings hits of the year with CTV’s The Amazing Race Canada and Shaw Media’s Big Brother Canada.

With confirmed numbers now in, blockbuster hit The Amazing Race Canada is the most-watched Canadian program of the year with an average audience of 2.8 million viewers on CTV; the #1 Summer series overall; and the #2 television series in Canada behind only CTV’s The Big Bang Theory.* More than three million Canadians tuned in to see Mickey & Pete’s pantless victory lap in the season finale.


Shaw Media’s Big Brother Canada’s second season, which debuted last March, is the most-watched reality program across all specialty channels.** The show’s rabid fan base ensured that the Big Brother Canada finale outshone even hockey playoffs across specialty channels.*** Coming off the heels of a stellar second season, Big Brother Canada makes the move to Global for Season 3, debuting next year.

“Broadcasters and sponsors alike know that Insight shows deliver viewers week after week,” said John Brunton, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, and Executive Producer of both series. “That so many Canadians connected so passionately to these shows is a testament in part to Mark Lysakowski and Erin Brock’s phenomenal storytelling ability and exacting standards.”

As previously announced, casting for both Big Brother Canada and The Amazing Race Canada is now underway. For Big Brother Canada, visit www.bigbrothercanadacasting.ca. In person open casting calls begin on October 19 in Vancouver and Calgary, followed by stops in Regina, Halifax, St. John’s, Montréal, and Toronto.

TORONTO - Bell Media is teaming with "Survivor" creator Mark Burnett and MGM to develop new TV formats for worldwide audiences.

A TV format is the concept, branding and premise of a program. Examples of international formats adapted by Bell Media's CTV for local audiences include "The Amazing Race Canada," "Masterchef Canada" and "Canadian Idol."

The terms of the deal announced Wednesday were not released, but Bell Media says it already has several pilots for new formats in development and pre-production.

Bell Media is officially partnering with the United Artists Media Group -- a newly formed joint venture among Burnett, his production partner Roma Downey, MGM and Hearst Entertainment -- and Omnicom Canada's Highway Entertainment.

Phil King, president of CTV sports and entertainment programming, said in a news release that the broadcaster was "thrilled" to be partnering with Burnett and others.

"With enormous pedigree and an incredible track record for hit format creation, we look forward to not only developing content for our own market, but internationally as well," he said.
