Fantastic episode tonight!   Tough.  Challenging.  Some surprises.  And the Iles de la Madeleine look wonderful.

Previously on The Amazing Race Canada...

Teams headed back home to Canada where some teams clawed their way through 1 side of the detour and others scraped the bottom of the barrel. A big revelation and a budding friendship got Brent & Sean the EP. In a leg dedicated to her parents, exes Dujean & Leilani won 1st place. A misplaced passport left Hamilton & Michaelia at the back of the pack, getting them eliminated.

8 teams remain.

Dujean & Leilani depart 1st at 1:30AM. Fly to Les Iles de la Madeleine. They're going to the airport.

Brian & Cynthia - 1:51 AM. Cynthia not sure where they are.

Nick & Matt - 2:36 AM. They know they're a 1st place team but they haven't proved it yet.

Brent & Sean - 2:52 AM. Simi & Ope - 3:31 AM. Neil & Kristin - 3:32 AM. You have 1 loonie for this leg of the race. :lol:

Gino & Jesse - 3:39 AM. They say they're better than a 7th team. Nic & Sabrina - 4:14 AM. They're confident that they can be first. They're going back to their home province.

All teams on the same flight. Once landed, Chevy Colorado with a clue. With a photo to reference, they will pack their truck with 2 kayaks and camping stuff. Once their truck is ready, they can proceed. Proceed to Plage de la dune du sud. CAUTION: 2X U-TURN AHEAD.

Kristin is excited for this leg because she has experience with camping and kayaking stuff. Nic & Sabrina having trouble and same with Brent & Sean. Gino & Jesse 1st to leave. Brian & Cynthia 2nd to leave. Neil & Kristin done in 3rd.

Gino & Jesse found their clue. RB: Who's the king of the castle? 1 racer will have to recreate a sandcastle. Using an example for reference, the team member will have to build the sandcastle around their partner and bury their partner loooool. There are walls and windows and stuff for the sandcastle.

Brian & Cynthia arrive. Cynthia doing the RB. Cynthia: "Think warm thoughts." :lol: Cynthia starts getting dirt on Brian's crotch area and Brian says for her to not get sand on him too hard. :lol:

Neil doing the RB. "I've buried my daughter semi-alive... Hasn't stopped her from talking."

Ope doing the RB. Wrestlers arrive. Dujean & Leilani arrive. Brent & Sean arrive.

Gino using wet sand because it stays compact.

Gino done the RB in 1st! Proceed to Monument aux Pecheurs.

Cynthia's sandcastle not approved. She's missing a small detail... Brian says he can crack a coconut with his abs lol.

Nic & Sabrina last to the sandcastles. Sabrina doing the RB. "The hard part is covering Nic completely because he's over 6 feet tall." :lol: And Sabrina accidentally steps on his arm. :lol:

Kristin is freezing cold. Neil is getting a check and it's not approved... Neil realizes it's the stairs. Kristin doesn't know if she can do this anymore because she's so cold. She asks if they should take the penalty.

Kristin says she's gonna puke. And Sean pukes... Omg. Ew.

Cynthia sees that there are 8 stairs going up to the top of the sandcastle instead of 7. Sandcastle's approved and she's done in 2nd.

Gino & Jesse found the cluebox. Face Off! Beat another Race team in a head-to-head game of kayak hockey. Teams cannot proceed until they beat someone else. The first team to score 2 goals can proceed. The team that loses will have to wait to challenge the next team. The last team has to wait out a pre-determined time penalty.

Simi & Ope done in 3rd.

Gino & Jesse vs. Brian & Cynthia. Gino & Jesse think they'll crush Brian & Cynthia. The whistle blows and Gino & Jesse are halfway to the ball but Cynthia is nowhere close lol. Gino & Jesse got 1 goal. Cynthia's out of her kayak. Brothers won 2-0 lol. Detour: Ride It or Pull It.

Ride It: Locate a stable and master the equestrian act of dressage. Successfully go through an obstacle course. Both teams have to finish it in a combined time of 8 minutes or less.
Pull It: Drive to a farm... Roll a 75 pound hay from the pasture to barn. Then milk cow by hand. Fill 1L bottle with milk. Gino & Jesse do pull it.

Nick & Matt done in 4th. Brent & Sean done in 5th. Dujean & Leilani out in 6th. Kristin upset.

Brian & Cynthia vs Simi & Ope. Ope has never been in a kayak before. Brian & Cynthia won 2-0. They choose pull it.

Simi & Ope vs Nick & Matt.

Brent & Sean get the face off clue. "Kayak hockey? Oh god this is a leg from hell." :funny:

Nick & Matt won 2-0 against Simi & Ope. Simi starts crying. She's exhausted.

Wrestlers pick pull it as well.

Gino & Jesse might have passed the barn. Brian & Cynthia got to the barn in 1st. Gino & Jesse arrive shortly after. Gino & Jesse quickly push the hay bale. Brian & Cynthia struggling a little. Gino & Jesse have never been to a farm before and they said it sounds like cow manure lool. They each have to fill a 1 L bottle with milk. "Come on Gino! Work those nipples! :funny: :funny: :funny:

Simi & Ope vs. Brent & Sean. Simi says Brent & Sean are sweet guys but they can definitely take them. Brent & Sean get the 1st goal. Simi says she's angry now. Brent & Sean win 2-0. They pick pull it too.

Simi & Ope vs. Dujean & Leilani. And Ope tips over into the water. Dujean & Leilani have 1 goal. Simi & Ope have been beaten by 3 teams so far... Simi says if they can't turn it around soon, they're going home.

And we're back at the face off. Dujean & Leilani win 2-0. They pick ride.

Sabrina: "I'd rather be decorating a cake." Nic says he has to pee so bad. Sabrina just tells him to pee LOL. He says there's so much pressure on his bladder.

Neil & Kristin done the RB in 7th. Neil tries to pull Kristin out of the sand. Kristin starts screaming out in pain. Kristin says she can't move. Her muscles have cramped up because of the pressure and cold. They have to go to the hospital in an ambulance! :o

Gino & Jesse and Brian & Cynthia both milking cows lol. Nick & Matt pushed the hay bale and now they're milking the cows. Gino & Jesse have 1 L of milk and they're almost done their 2nd... And they're done the detour! Proceed to L'escalier de la point aux meules where they'll find the 2X U-Turn.

Brian & Cynthia done the detour in 2nd.

Nic & Sabrina still at sandcastles omg lol. :lol:

Dujean & Leilani doing horses. They have to go through an obstacle course. Leilani went to horse camps in the summer as a child. Her house is very fiesty. :lol: Basically in the obstacle courses you have to get close enough to certain ropes to remove them so the horse can go through and then at the end they have to drag a weird cardboardish cow thing through pylons lol.

Brent & Sean finish rolling the hay and arrive at the cows... and see a cow pooping. Nasty. :lol:

Ope's really cold... He's freezing cold. Simi & Ope ask about a penalty. It's a 4 hour penalty. They decide to take it because no teams are showing up. They choose pull it.

Nic & Sabrina finish the RB in last... Uh oh they'll have to wait for Neil & Kristin at the face off. Kristin wheelchaired out to the car. She has basically cramped up super hard but can still continue. They arrive at the face off and decide to take the 4 hour penalty!!! Kristin grew up riding horses. She's crying because her calves are burning and you need calves to ride horses... But she wants to do horses anyway.

Gino & Jesse and Brian & Cynthia going to the 2X U-Turn board... Brian & Cynthia arrive first. Brian says if they U-Turn the brothers, they could get first but they decide to not use the U-Turn. Pit stop: Grosse-Ile.

Gino & Jesse arrive at the 2X U-Turn board. They're talking about maybe U-Turning Nick & Matt because they've finished consistently high or Brent & Sean to flush out the EP. Commercial.

I wonder if Nic & Sabrina have to take the 4 hour penalty as well because they have no one to face off against... Or maybe they'll just get the pre-determined time penalty for technically "finishing" last at the face off. Or what if they're not told at all that no more teams will be at the face off and they just keep waiting. ???

And we're back at the 2X U-Turn. Gino & Jesse decide to U-Turn Brent & Sean to flush out the EP.

Nick & Matt done the detour in 3rd. Brent & Sean done the detour in 4th.

Nic & Sabrina arrive at the face off in last. Because both Simi & Ope and Neil & Kristin took 4 hour penalties, there are no teams to face off against so they don't have to take the pre-determined penalty. They can just continue to the detour!!!

Simi & Ope see no one at the barn so they realize they have to finish fast. They're milking the cows.

Brian & Cynthia went past the pit stop. They went too far. Gino & Jesse see the pit stop... And Gino & Jesse are the first team to arrive to the pit stop! They won 2 tickets to any of their Canadian destinations from Air Canada. They won 1 year of free gas from Petro Canada! Wow.

Brian & Cynthia are the 2nd team to arrive. Brian says Gino & Jesse may have won the battle but they will win the war.

Wrestlers choose not to use the U-Turn. Brent & Sean see they've been U-Turned. They choose to U-Turn Nic & Sabrina!!! They realize that they can still keep the EP if they U-Turn someone behind them and finish that task before.

Pit Stop:
1st - Gino & Jesse
2nd - Brian & Cynthia

Dujean has never rode an animal but he knows that they can sense fear and confidence lol. Leilani & Dujean done with 3:17 remaining!

Brent & Sean ask Leilani & Dujean if the horse riding was hard. Leilani says they can do it.

Nick & Matt are the 3rd team to arrive... Again. :lol:

Nic & Sabrina arrive at the barn. Ope done milking 1 L. Nic is milking the cow.

Pit Stop:
1st - Gino & Jesse
2nd - Brian & Cynthia
3rd - Nick & Matt

Neil & Kristin are at the horse detour. Neil is ready to go but Kristin is having second thoughts. She doesn't think she can do the detour... She asks her dad to sit with her. She thinks this might be the end of the road for them...

And we're back. Kristin asks Neil if they should try. Neil says it's her decision to make. Kristin decides to try. She's on crutches.

Brent & Sean are determined to the detour. They don't want to use their EP today. Sean went horseback riding in the mountains in Banff. Brent & Sean done the detour with 17 seconds left! Wow.

Kristin on the horse. She says this has no legs involved and it's all in the reins. They're done the detour!

Simi done milking. Simi & Ope done the detour in 7th. Nic & Sabrina done with the milking in last.

Omg a bunch of teams all arriving at the U-Turn at around the same time. Nic & Sabrina see that Brent & Sean U-Turned them. Sabrina: "You knew we were in last place. Why would you do that?" :lol:

Dujean & Leilani are the 4th team to arrive. Brent & Sean are team #5. They still have their EP! Good for them.

Pit Stop:
1st - Gino & Jesse
2nd - Brian & Cynthia
3rd - Nick & Matt
4th - Dujean & Leilani
5th - Brent & Sean

Simi & Ope are just in front of Neil & Kristin. Simi & Ope turned but there was no sign. Neil & Kristin kept going. Simi & Ope saw that they kept going. And Neil & Kristin are the 6th team to arrive at the pit stop as Kristin hobbles onto the mat. They have a 4 hour penalty. Simi & Ope are the 7th team to arrive and they have a 4 hour penalty as well.

Nic & Sabrina is the only team still left...

Nic & Sabrina arrive at the horses. It's too dangerous to do the horse race in the dark! OMG. They have to wait for a pre-determined amount of time before they can get their clue!!!

Nic & Sabrina are the last team to arrive... BUT THEY'RE THE 6TH TEAM TO ARRIVE BECAUSE 2 OTHER TEAMS HAVE A PENALTY! :o

Neil & Kristin and Simi & Ope both get called to the mat. Neil & Kristin are team #7. Simi & Ope are team #8. Kristin says she loves sharing the mat with them but not like this. BUT THIS LEG OF THE RACE IS NOT OVER??? IT'S A KEEP ON RACING LEG. :o :o :o MAKE YOUR WAY TO SUDBURY, ONTARIO! OMGGGGGGGGG.

Next time... Keep on racing. The drama continues. "This is your lunch." Gino & Jesse presented tray of bugs that they might have to eat??? Other team doing CPR on a dummy I think. Detour forces teams to take the plunge (Brent & Sean in water) and go deep underground.

Pit Stop:
1st - Gino & Jesse
2nd - Brian & Cynthia
3rd - Nick & Matt
4th - Dujean & Leilani
5th - Brent & Sean
6th - Nic & Sabrina
7th - Neil & Kristin
8th - Simi & Ope

Great episode again! I'm surprised at how Brian and Cynthia have been doing and how Simi & Ope have been doing . I feel bad for the producers too with the scheduling mishap with the horses and also 2 teams just bailing on the face-off.

I loved that episode. I was not expecting a KoR, especially given how they edited it as if it was a normal episode until the Reveal.

I did enjoy how tense the leg was.
KoR was definitely unexpected, considering there was a double u-turn in play.
I loved that Gino and Jesse tried to strategically make Brent and Sean burn their EP, and they didn't bite.

Not sure if the Face Off worked or not, I do understand the concept of making it kind of the anti-intersection and its potential to shift placements around, however they should've tried the concept with a task that didn't favor so much more physical teams over others. For some reason I keep picturing something like the Sjoelen game from Netherland leg from TAR26, that would still be competitive, would require some skill and wouldn't favor physical teams more.
