Pretty neat infographic on social media's influence on TARCAN:

Sorry for being relatively new to RFF.  I am reading many old threads.  I saw this and read some more.  So the company MediaMiser has changed names but their new company Agility PR Solutions has posted cool little reads on each of the episodes from Season 4.  Do yourself a favour and go to https://www.google.ca/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=agility+PR+Solutions+Amazing+Race+Canada&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&gfe_rd=cr&ei=anl2WKG5BcGh8wfCkr_YCA  It provides sort of an interesting summary of each leg that I think the show creators must have access to to gauge impact.

Sinorama, had a hunch. Well that explains the visit to

China

They're a Canadian travel company specializing in packages to that country and the region. Their commercials are on all the time.

So cool!

Ready, Set, RACE PLAY! New THE AMAZING RACE CANADA In-Show Game Brings all the Action to Viewers

– RACE PLAY features in-show weekly polls and trivia, prompting viewers to engage in real-time on their mobile device and desktop during all original broadcasts across the country –

– All-new season brings fans to the starting line and inside some of the toughest challenges of the season with immersive VR360 experiences –

To tweet this release: bmpr.ca/2t1Op7I

TORONTO, June 28, 2017 /CNW/ - Hot on the heels of last week's @CTV_PR #MeetTheRacers team announcements on Instagram and Twitter, CTV unveiled two new innovative viewer experiences ahead of the epic fifth season of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, airing Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, beginning July 4 on CTV and CTV GO.

First, CTV revealed today a new game, RACE PLAY, that integrates race action from the broadcast into in-show polls and trivia, prompting viewers in real-time to answer on their second screens – mobile devices and desktop – during all original broadcasts across the country. Powered by CTV.ca, viewers can weigh in on pivotal moments throughout the episode, such as what Detour to take, and predict the order teams hit the mat. The results will appear on a leaderboard on their second screen so viewers can see how they stack up with the rest of the country. Fans who create an account will have their answers count towards a season-long leaderboard. RACE PLAY is powered by iPowow, worldwide leaders in participation television.

CTV also announced today new THE AMAZING RACE CANADA VR360 experiences that bring fans right to the starting line and inside some of the most grueling challenges throughout the race. The VR360 experience begins by featuring the season premiere episode, which CTV confirmed today will kick-off in St. John's N.L., and see Racers travel more than 5,000 kilometers across the country to Vancouver.

Using VR360 immersive video capture, audiences can share and explore THE AMAZING RACE CANADA environments, incredible places, and some of the most exciting moments of the season, including the starting line at Signal Hill National Historic Site in St. John's N.L. Narrated by host Jon Montgomery, VR360 was captured in five Canadian legs of the race in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation. The VR360 experience is available on CTV.ca and THE AMAZING RACE CANADA Facebook Page, as well as the SamsungVR app, the YouTube VR, and Facebook 360, and is accessible via mobile, desktop, and Oculus (VR headset). THE AMAZING RACE CANADA VR360 experience is produced by Tyger Shark Inc. with the financial participation of the Bell Fund.   

"With RACE PLAY and THE AMAZING RACE CANADA VR360 experience, we're engaging RACE fans like never before, while also extending the brand across multiple platforms," said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, Content and Programming.

"It's been a lot of fun integrating RACE PLAY and the VR360 experience into the show," said Executive Producer John Brunton. "Whether it's inviting viewers right to the starting line or testing their knowledge of the Racers and the places we visit, we are thrilled to deliver a new and layered viewing experience to audiences for the new season of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA."

The site features videos, bios, fun facts, and exclusive content. For full episodes, sneak peeks, and extras, head to the site after the Season 5 premiere on July 4.

Season 4 of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA averaged 1.9 million viewers per week, making it the #1 series of the summer for four consecutive years and a Top 20 program in Canada in 2016.

Hosted by Olympic Gold Medalist Jon Montgomery (@jonmonty), Season 5 will see Racers travel across Canada and beyond, tackling non-stop challenges in the country's favourite summertime adventure. Canadians can also look forward to special challenges and storylines to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation throughout the season.

This season's grand prize is a Next Generation 2018 Chevrolet Equinox True North Edition for each of the winners, a once-in-a-lifetime trip around the world for two, $250,000 in cash, and the coveted title of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA champions. Racers will also be competing for special leg prizes, awarded to the first team to cross the mat in each of the episodes leading up to the finale.

Encore presentations of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA air Saturdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT and Sundays at 5 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO. Visit CTV.ca to check local listings. Previous seasons are also available for streaming now on CraveTV.

Season 5 of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA welcomes back returning partner Chevrolet, which has been with the series for all five seasons, and BMO, which enters its third consecutive season as a partner. New partners this year are Sinorama, Canadian Tire's Woods brand, and Campbell's.

Apparently they're putting up stickers at past seasons' locations cross-country

https://twitter.com/OhHeyJacob/status/880485516579414018

I wondered what a guy from PEI was talking about earlier saying a Petro-Canada station there was a stop (on Jon Pardy's Retweet) - https://twitter.com/drewmacck/status/880477870644240384

I just assumed he was mistaking season 2 with this year. Petro dropped their sponsorship after season 3

Wow, this article spoils a lot of the first episode! http://o.canada.com/entertainment/television/the-amazing-race-canada-players-so-competitive-in-season-5-says-showrunner

The Amazing Race Canada players ‘so competitive’ in Season 5, says showrunner

Barrelling around the corner in a blur of backpacks and Spandex, the teams battling it out on The Amazing Race Canada scan Capilano Suspension Bridge Park for a falconer with a clue to their next destination. Each team’s camera crew runs far too fast for 9 o’clock in the morning, trying to keep up.

It’s the second day of a two-day leg that kicks off season 5 of the travel competition. Yesterday, they were in St. Johns, NL, taking on challenges involving the Coast Guard, the harbour docks and Cabot Tower.

But this is Vancouver. In a destination filled with trees an arm span wide, no less. The smell of cedar sweetens the air, while a nearby river chats up invisible birds. One by one, the teams scuttle to the falconer’s base and await her directions.

“Woah, this is Canada? This is amazing!” someone shouts, and a blond gallops up with high fives for everyone. But the falcon perched on her caretaker’s arm is not amused. Neither are the two owls in their habitat behind them, complaining about interrupted sleep.

Luckily, birds aren’t The Amazing Race’s target demographic. The homegrown competition continues to be ratings gold for CTV — last season averaged 1.9 million viewers per week, making it the No. 1 summer series each year it’s been on.

This season sticks with the winning formula. Ten teams of two race across Canada and abroad, tackling challenges — including ones celebrating confederation — for the grand prize: a pair of Next Generation 2018 Chevrolet Equinox cars, a trip around the world for two and $250,000 in cash.
It’s enough to make the most jovial contestant play with a little more hustle and muscle.

“Season 1 was ‘Oh my god, I can’t believe we’re doing this!” says showrunner Mark Lysakowski. “And then seasons after that, you know what to expect. But the cast is so competitive this year, fighting for every little thing in every leg. It’s like watching a really cool live sporting event.”

“In season 1, I don’t think anybody got U-turned,” adds host Jon Montgomery, referring to one team’s option to force another to do a challenge they didn’t originally choose. “That was pretty pure Canadiana, but it’s also probably not the best strategy for winning. This season, nobody’s pulling any punches and they’re playing to win.”

Among the contestants: Aaron and Deborah Baker, a mother and son who work as funeral directors (and are wearing matching suits to boot); Sam Lambert and Paul Mitskopoulos, boyfriends from Toronto; Zed and Shabbir Dhalla, a cancer-survivor dad and his son; and Kenneth McAlpine and Ryan LaChapelle, surfer-dude best friends (“They’re the ultimate Canadian hosers,” says Lysakowski).

Hollering and fist-pumping the air, the teams wobble across the Capilano Suspension Bridge — 70 metres above the river and 137 metres long — and set off in search of the Gassy Jack statue for their next clue.

Vancouver itself is a blend of modern and rustic, with glittering condos and stores like Holt Renfrew, Harry Rosen and Sephora tucked behind cherry blossom trees. Ever-present in the background are rows of mountains dressed formally in evergreens and capped in snow. The Pacific Ocean sprinkles salt in the air.
From Gassy Jack, in the historic section downtown, the racers will make their way to one of the show’s most dramatic challenges yet: a tightrope walk between two roofs at The Fairmont Hotel. Actually, the term “tightrope” might be generous. It’s more of a thumbwidth strap that flits in the wind, as if the task of keeping a human from falling 14 stories into traffic were as easy as brunch.

Two by two, the competitors tiptoe across the strap, wearing a harness that acts like a designated driver to the wiggling strap’s party girl. Crew on both roofs pull and strain to adjust the rigging as the teams go along.

“Woooo! Oh my God, that was so awesome. Oh my Goooooooddd! This is awesome! This is awesome!” yells fitness consultant Ebonie Roberge, as she dismounts. Shortly after, events coordinator LaChappelle tumbles midway through his second attempt, dangling helplessly as the harness hauls him up.

“There are always snap judgments (you make about the racers), that you’re pleasantly surprised by or let down by,” says Montgomery.

“People don’t maybe challenge themselves as hard as you think they should on a particular challenge. But when someone does have a moment like that, I promise you, on this show, they always redeem themselves … They can’t pussyfoot their way through the race and expect to come out as champions.”

Across the street, pedestrians take pictures of the competitors navigating the strap above. Incoming teams mingle with them, cheering on their peers. And in a production vehicle nearby, Tom Petty’s 1989 Free Fallin’ plays on a CD — the driver’s seemingly oblivious to the irony.
“In the first season, we were very concerned about the public leaking information while we were racing. Like, ‘Oh, my god it’s all over social media. Since then, I have not really cared because it creates excitement,” says Lysakowski.

The hardest thing, he says, is keeping the show fresh.

With the U.S. version of The Amazing Race wrapping its 29th season last month, and the Canadian version debuting its fifth season soon after, race overload is a real threat.

This year, CTV introduces two new features for viewers looking for a little more oomph.

Race Play will integrate each episode’s action into in-show polls and trivia, which happen in real time, and VR360 experiences will use immersive video capture to bring fans inside some of the most gruelling challenges.

“I still think there are more seasons in the show. I still think there are more places we can go. And we’re going to go back to certain places — there are more shows in Toronto, there are more shows in Vancouver, in Calgary,” says Lysakowski.

“The thing about Canada is that there are so many cool things that are going on, and I’m always on the lookout for new things to do and new places to go, and new things to see. And that to me is the best part of this show — discovering Canada.”

Things I picked up from article:

1) First task involves the: Coast Guard, the harbour docks and Cabot Tower.
2) The article confirms the order of the locations in Vancouver.
3) Must find a falconer with at the bridge.
4) Jon makes a mistake in saying that no teams uturned each other in S1, we all know how Bodybreak reacted in Regina  :funny:
5) Ebonie/Ryan do the Slack line RB, with Ebonie finishing before Ryan.

I don't think that film permit was a decoy. There was a huge crowd at City Hall that day - if I remember correctly, it was a protest against Rob Ford???  Any way it was on the books at City Hal and I think they did a last minute repacement with the L-Tower to avoid the throngs of onlookers.
