They're really pushing the former racers in the bonus clips this year. Steph & Kristen's "Backseat Driver" recap series with past teams from all seasons, the coincidental(?) meeting with Hal en route to Regina.

For those who can't see them, by the way, these were the teams featured (copied from Steph & Kristen's Wikia page). The rest were them alone.
-Episode 2: Brent & Sean (Season 3)
-Episode 3: Frankie & Amy (Season 4)
-Episode 5: Rex & Bob (Season 2)
-Episode 6: Hamilton & Michaelia (Season 3)
-Episode 8: Hal & Joanne (Season 1)
-Episode 10: Holly & Brett (Season 1)

If they have one more season in them, I'm sensing hints from this that we're quite possibly getting an All-Stars next to end it off. After 5 seasons, there's enough memorable teams to fill a cast IMO. Vietnam's 5th one was.

To end it off?  It really caught my eye. You mean to say that TARCAN is ending??  Please :dontgo:

There is NO evidence that TARC is ending. Just like the US version renewals are given out by the Network in 1's or 2's.

We are confirmed thru 6. Just because there is not an ANNOUNCED renewal YET certainly doesn't mean there will not be one.

TARC often leads its time slot...I would be hugely shocked if this does not go on.

Quit with the doomsday faces. :funny:

And fwiw I don't think they'll do a returning season YET either. IMO.

I don't think they would do a returnee/all-stars season this early either, but I know the success of BBCan's last two seasons may convince them otherwise. I just hope they go all out when they do decide on one. I've already got several teams I would like to see go head-to-head. LOL

Oh yeah, one last post for this season :) Forgot to mention the life updates said in those Backseat Drivers segments, as I was updating "post-race" sections on their Wikia pages.

-Hamilton & Michaelia are married now
-Holly & Brett have their first child, Dylan
-Frankie & Amy are both now back to natural dark. And Frankie recently acquired an agent, she's getting into a television career.

last two paragraphs are an interesting read:

https://saultonline.com/2017/10/famtastic-year-for-travel-media-in-sault-ste-marie/

Quote
Visiting travel media typically cover attractions like the Agawa Canyon Tour Train, fishing in the St. Mary’s River and area lakes, local restaurants and museums, and hiking and driving along the shore of Lake Superior. “It’s our job to convince travel media to come here; once they arrive, they’re always amazed with the beauty of the region,” said Lindsey Ackland, Coordinator of Visitor & Media Relations. “We look forward to generating more FAM tours and welcoming new travel writers in the weeks and months to come.”

These promotional opportunities are created by attending media marketplace events and pitching the community. As one example, staff met producers of The Amazing Race Canada at a 2016 forum. After some detailed discussions, the show decided to film an episode in Sault Ste. Marie. Aired last month, the segment generated more than 1.5 million viewers and over $1.18 million of ad coverage for the city in the Ontario market alone.

Any idea of the event names? I remember seeing something last year - could even have been the one mentioned, but I can't remember.
