Do we know if they already started the second round of audition/call backs, or if they really are waiting for tomorow to start that?

Apparently the ParticiPaction duo applied ...

The Amazing Race Canada officially closed its open auditions as of noon Friday. And, while the show won’t officially announce which Canadian couplings will race across our great nation just yet, we here at Canada.com already have a clear favourite: Body Break duo Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod.

The couple, who have been keeping fit and having fun as partners in life and nationally televised ads for 25 years, claim to have never missed an episode of the American reality series. So when CTV announced that it would be putting on a Canadian version, Johnson announced the couple’s participaction on Twitter.  “Joanne and I will be auditioning for #Amazing Race Canada as soon as the information is available,” Johnson sent to Body Break’s nearly 10,000 followers.

............................
And on February 27, with some encouragement from a Huffington Post Canada article, they did just that. Watch the video – which is just as awesome as you’d imagine –

Any word on hosts. My hopes would be Eugene Levy or Drake.

Excitement is building around the Canuck edition of The Amazing Race, which will be filmed in May all over Canada before it begins airing in July on CTV.

According to the ad played during the broadcasting of tonight's American episode, TAR Canada will be broadcast on Monday evenings this summer! Interesting...it's starting to come together.

Also I'll be on the lookout for clue boxes and such over the next 5 weeks in Toronto! It's quite likely they'll do at least one or two legs here.

Expect the host announcement to be used as a distraction to avoid first-leg spoilers.

Hmmm, perhaps Sass Jordan as host of TAR Canada?

While you're waiting for the batteries in your camera to recharge (because you'll need it for when TAR CA comes to your home town), lets turn our thoughts to what we know for sure about TAR CA:
Sponsors:
  Chevrolet - all self driving will be in Chevys - I think we'll see a lot of self driving in Chevy Cruzes or Trax.
  Air Canada - it will be the exclusive airline - so only places where AC flies - no WestJet or Porter
  BlackBerry - clues may be sent via BlackBerry? Don't know how they'll fit this one in - maybe navigation apps? U Turns displayed on the Playbook?
  INTERAC® - should be interesting - instead of cash at the pit stop release give the racers prepaid credit cards.

CTV is the broadcast network - so look for them to avoid locations that stink of Rogers - i.e. the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Rogers arena in Vancouver
Insight Productions - production company - Canada's equivalent of World Race Productions for TAR CA - based in Toronto - also produced Big Brother Canada amongst other things.

And I wasn't kidding about the camera thing. The race start is imminent - be ready. Watch the twitters!
