ABOUT FRANKIE AND AMY

Frankie and Amy are a spunky mother/daughter duo who act more like friends than a typical mother and daughter. After getting pregnant at 15, Frankie was kicked out of her house and forced to raise her daughter on her own. Growing up Amy struggled with the perception of having a young mother, yet despite these challenges Frankie and Amy are now closer than ever.

The typical mother/daughter roles are reversed with this pair. Amy is the mature one who shines with smarts and creative energy, while Frankie is a fiery young soul with a tough-as-nails exterior. Working in a hair salon, they are used to their clients venting, and they have become masters of conversation. And when required, they also know how and when to manipulate the conversation. 

These two ladies have been through a lot and are determined to use their spunk, attitude, and bubbly energy to win "The Amazing Race Canada." Frankie would use the prize money to pay off debts, travel, and put toward her son’s college education. Amy would put her share toward a house, travel, and donation to Critter Care where she volunteered.

FUN FACTS
Motto: “Don’t step on people to win, unless they get in your way.”
If you and your teammate were a pop duo, what would your name be? The Elements
Walk on song: “Break my Stride” – Matthew Wilder
Past team they most associate with: Tim and Tim
If you could be an animal what would you be?
Frankie: Mermaid
Amy: Unicorn

More questions from their profile...

Frankie:
What’s in your backpack? - Clothes, makeup, curling iron, hats, compass, calculator, rope, headlamp, swim cap, shades, hand and foot warmers and gloves!

How did you train for the Race? - Boxing, running, weights and I quit smoking

How did you choose your team colour? - Since my hair was already red it was a no-brainer.

Amy:
How did you choose your team colour? - We chose to be unique and true to ourselves. I’m a chill gal and my mom is fiery and bright so fire and ice was born.

What's the next big thing in your life you'd like to accomplish? -Winning “The Amazing Race Canada” and travelling the world with my man.

Mother/daughter hairstylists?  Does anyone else see parallels to Alla & Oleksandra from Ukraine's version?  (Just watched the first half of that season on YouTube!)

That's what we all thought in the filming sightings, too, she looks almost as young! There's only 15 years between them.

I also thought the same (either that, or they were a couple)

FRANKIE & AMY GASSLER: There could not be a mother-daughter team more like sisters than the literally-colourful, Frankie and Amy, a hair stylist and barber from Aldergrove, B.C.

Frankie, who was a teen mom, admits her daughter is more mature.

“Certain things,” Frankie says. “She’s very good at paying off her credit card debt every month, where I’m not as good. She’s an old soul.”

“Just growing up, having a single mom,” Amy says. “I didn’t want to put more on her plate than she already had, so I did things myself.”

As for following her mom into hair, “I didn’t want her to do it. Just putting that out there,” Frankie says. “She was an honour role student. I was an ‘80s street kid. I got Cs. So I thought maybe she should be a doctor.”

And competitive? Amy was a high school rugby player. “I accidentally broke a girl’s foot and I dislocated her shoulder. By accident,” Amy says.
